Misc. Notes
Joshua Brooks “was a tanner in Lincoln, where his descendants have lived, three of whom, in succession, have held the office of deacon. He was the ancestor of nearly all of the name since in Concord and Lincoln.”628 “He settled in that south part of Concord which became a part of Lincoln, and, it is supposed, sold his paternal estate in Medford to his brother Caleb. It is conjectured that he learned his trade [tanner] of Capt. Mason, and, soon after, married his daughter. He was adm. freeman May 26, 1652.”619
