John T. Brooks married Sarah Brooks in Margate PEI in 1880. It looks like he was a widower. The eldest daughter in the household, Mellone or Millera, is possibly Melissa, born 1873, daughter of John and Hannah Brooks.

John, age 34, and Sarah, age 26, were in the 1881 census with Mellone, age 7; John Robert. age 4, and Johanna Maud, one month. In 1891, there were Millera, 17; Robert 15, Johanna 10, and David Alexander, age 6.

Robert died at age 19. A son Thomas, baptized in 1897, does not appear in the 1901 census with the family.

John Brooks died June 29 1897, buried 30th June 1897, aged 60. "At Fredericton on the 28th inst., John T. Brooks, aged 52 years, leaving a wife and four children to mourn the loss of a kind father and loving husband."

Sarah was a widow in the 1901 census, with daughters Martha (Johanna Maud?), Alexander, and Sadie. She married again, to John Carew, and died in 1940. According to her obituary, she was survived by Mrs. Ernest Stead (Sadie), Mrs. Maud Wall, and Mrs. Melissa Wall. "Her only son predeceased her three years ago."
