Mathilda was born in Madison, Indiana, the daughter of Nicholas and Mary Manville. She married Benjamin Brooks on April 6, 1815, in Madison, Jefferson County, Indiana, where it is on record and can be retrieved through the Indiana Marriage database. However, undocumented family stories say they were married in Bourbon Co., Kentucky, before their seven-year journey from Kentucky to Vermilion County, Illinois. She was the co-founder of the important settlement called Brooks' Point. Their children are Benjamin Frank, Polly, Sarah, John, David and Lucinda, who was born shortly after her husband Benjamin Sr. died. Her husband and her father were partners in mills near the area that later became known as Manville, probably named after Nicholas Manville, (son of Butler, son of Nicholas). She later married Charles McCorkle after Benjamin died in Dana, Indiana, while helping to construct a mill there.
