Hi, I'm still looking for Hugh Brooks born in Cleveland, Ohio 1850.
I have a newspaper clipping of Hugh Brooks as a Land Locator in International Falls, Wisconsin about the time his daughter Amy Brooks (my grandmother)was born in Stevens Point, Wisconsin 1873. (Amy married Ivan Smith from Stonewall, Man.& raised family in Winnipeg)
Family notes also say Amy Brooks was born in Junction City, which I believe is only a few miles from Stevens Point.
From what I have heard, Hugh's wife may have died with the childbirth of my grandmother Amy 1873 ??
Some of the Brook descendants or relatives lived in the area of in Stevens Point or Plover, Wisconsin.
Would like to have some kind of information on this family.
