John BROOKS, was a son of Samuel and Eliza (Willey) Brooks, b. at Pittsfield, Dec 24, 1842, and always resided here until he enlisted Aug 23, 1861. He was wounded June 16, 1862, was made corporal Sept 1863, and reenlisted Jan 31, 1864. He came home on a furlough in Mar 1864, and visited the grave of his cousin, C. O. Ring, with that young soldier's mother. While standing there, he said, "Aunt Mary, Charley fared better than I shall, for his body was brought home, but I shall be laid in Southern soil." At the time his company was surprised on Pinckney island, where Ring was killed, he was sick in the hospital. When he heard of his friend's tragic death he left the hospital, although the surgeon told him he would die if he did. To this he replied, "I don't care to live now that Charlie is gone." Soon after his return to his regiment, the army invested Petersburg. In just two years from his first wound, June 16, 1864, he was wounded again, and was taken to Point of Rocks, where he died the next day. He was in the service nearly three years. When Brooks received the last wound, a comrade hastened to assist him to the rear, but he declined the proffered aid, saying, "Load my gun so that I can give them villains one more shot." This he did until his officers put a stop to it by giving orders to two of the men to carry Brooks to the hospital.

Henry Plummer BROOKS, a native of Pittsfield, was born Feb 28, 1849. Dec 28, 1863, when only fourteen years old, he enlisted, as a private. He was engaged in the battles of Point of Rocks and Fort Fisher, where he conducted himself with great bravery. He escaped the bullets of the enemy only to die of chronic diarrhea at Fort Fisher. The adjutant-general's report says he died at Wilmington, N. C., April 14, 1864, but several of his comrades who were with him at the time say the report is incorrect. He was a brother of John Brooks of the same company, and stood by the latter's side when he received his death wound. He mourned his brother's death, and without doubt the shock hastened his end. It is a singular coincidence that Pittsfield should have the distinction of not only furnishing the oldest man from the entire North (Israel Drew), but also the youngest soldier. Plummer Brooks was but fourteen years and ten months of age when mustered into service. For two years the National Tribune of Washington has been publishing the age of the youngest soldiers, as well as the oldest. The youngest claimant, out of over 100 names furnished that paper, was fifteen years and eight months old. To be sure, there were boys younger than that who were drummers, but Brooks was the youngest by ten months of those who carried a gun.
