Memorable Manitobans: Frank D. Brooks (1878-?)


Born in Quebec on 26 March 1878, son of John Brooks and Harret Bagsley, the family moved to Manitoba in 1878 and took up a farm on Section 14, Township 11, Range 18 near Brandon. He attended Brandon College then worked on the family farm until his father’s retirement, when he took it over. He raised cattle, horses, and swine. On 29 November 1905, he married Mary Campbell. They had two children: Angus Campbell Brooks and John Brooks. He was a member of the IOOF and the Methodist church.
