Joseph Brooks

Orleans County Monitor; July 20, 1896:

Joseph Brooks, a long time resident of this town (Barton, VT), died on Tuesday last at the age of 75 years. He was a Canadian by birth and a very industrious man. He enlisted in the 11th regiment, Vermont Vols. and served honorably. His funeral services were held at the Catholic church on Thursday, Rev. Fr. Trucotte attending. The remarks were both in French and English and were very timely and interesting.
