Asa, Eli, Elias and Ezra HOLBROOK, four brothers, came to Townshend from Sturbridge, Mass., previous to 1773. Ezra located upon the farm now occupied by J. A. CHURCHILL, and subsequently cleared the farm now owned by J. L. NICHOLS, on road 20. One of his seven children married Reuben NICHOLS, who became the father of Hollis and J. L. NICHOLS, who own the homestead. Abner, the eldest son, married Sarah LEE and settled where A. B. GREENWOOD now resides. Four of their seven children are living, though only one, Harvey P., in Vermont. Abner HOLBROOK built a saw-mill on his farm, which he operated until his death, at the age of seventy-four years. Harvey P. married Orrissa BAILEY, in 1836, and has one daughter, Mrs. B. B. BRIGHAM. Hugh H. HOLBROOK, now residing on road 32, is a son of Aaron and great-grandson of Ezra. He served as a non-commissioned officer in Co. D, 16th Vt., Vols., during the late war.
