Biographical history

Samuel Towle Brooks was born on December 28, 1823, in Stanstead, during his parents' temporary residence. After attending Dartmouth, he became a medical student at McGill University from 1848 to 1851. Notarial records show that he was indentured to a Dr. MacDonnell in May 1848.

After completing his medical studies, Brooks practiced as a family doctor for 11 or 15 years in Sherbrooke. Around the beginning of the American Civil War, he moved to St. Johnsbury, Vermont, where he became a member of the Vermont Medical Society. He was a deacon of the North Congregational Church for about 25 years. On June 6, 1855, he married Lucy Mills. He passed away in 1895.
