Hello. I am seeking information on Mrs. Rhoda Brooks and the identity of her husband Mr. Brooks.
Rhoda was born abt 1773 in Rhode Island and died March 1862 in Wayne County, NY. Around 1805 the family would have lived in Oneida County, NY where her son Whaley Alexander was born. She appears to have been widowed before the year 1820 and at this time the family was living in Seneca County, NY.
Rhoda and her husband had seven children:
John b. abt 1803 NY d. 1881 Calhoun, MI married Mary Stroke
Philander b. abt 1804 Oneida, NY d. 1881 Calhoun, MI married Mary Moss and Martha Bailey
Whaley Alexander b. abt 1805 Oneida, NY d. 1887 Barry, MI married Betsey E. Countryman
George b. abt 1807 NY d. aft 1870 probably in Seneca, NY married Susan
