I'm looking for information on the following Brooks/DeVoe family. I think George Brooks is the brother of my GGG-grandfather Peter Brooks. If that is true, then his parents are George Brooks and Maria DeVoe (b. 24 February 1778, Albany, NY). I don't remember where I found the name of Deborah Devoe's mother Elizabeth, but I'm leaving it in this report, because it might have some relevance. I do have a notation that her name was Betsy, but I didn't source it. Several members of this family are buried in the Dewitt Cemetery, Dewitt, Onondaga Co., NY. John D. Brooks was in the civil war. I have copies of their census records 1850 forward. I've got more info that I'm willing to share. Thanks! Happy New Year, Eric Descendants of George Brooks Generation No. 1 1. GEORGE1 BROOKS was born 1807 in New York, and died 05 January 1893. He married DEBORAH DEVOE, daughter of ELIZABETH. She was born 1811 in New York, and died 22 March 1887.
