Son of Noah and Maracha (Russell) Brooks

The cemetery transcription shows his middle initial as B, but the tombstone appears to me to show R, so the transcription could be an error. Researchers of this line show his middle initial as R for Russell, which was his mother's maiden name. He is also shown in some census records as Roswell R. Additional research is needed to confirm the correct information. Roswell's brother Abiram married Elizabeth, a sister of Lydia Salisbury, Roswell's wife. Abiram and Elizabeth had a son named Roswell Russell Brooks. I believe the nephew was named for his uncle.

Thankyou to the findagrave volunteer who contacted me regarding the middle name. I have no way of responding to your thoughtful email. If you find additional documentation please let me know. I would be happy to share what I have on the Salisbury line.
