Hannah Matilda Brooks1

b. March 14, 1828, d. April 22, 1898
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Hannah Matilda Brooks was born on March 14, 1828 in Charlestown, Massachusetts, the only daughter and sole surviving child of Samuel and Hannah (Cogswell) Brooks.1
  • In 1835, Hannah Matilda Brooks moved to Warner, Merrimack County, New Hampshire, with her parents and younger brother, Thomas Emerson, who died October 18, 1838. There. in a delightful old house, which was the scene of constant hospitality, her happy youth was spent. Many of the winters were passed near Boston, either visiting or attending school. From her father Matilda Brooks inherited marked intellectual ability, and she received unusual educational advantages, culminating in 1846-7 in a year at the private school connected with the famous Brook Farm Community, at West Roxbury, Massachusetts. Here she met all the distinguished people of the day, and lived in a most stimulating intellectual atmosphere. She was a favorite pupil of George Ripley, the head of the school and one of the foremost American men of letters, Charles A. Dana, afterwards editor of the New York Sun, and Horace Greeley were members of the Community at that time. Some of the pupils were from Cuba and the Philippine Islands, regions far remote in those days. Mrs. Abbott was probably the only resident of New Hampshire ever connected with Brook Farm, and she regarded her year there as one of the great and special privileges of her life.

    At intervals, from the age of fifteen to twenty-eight years, Mrs. Abbott taught several terms of school in various places near her home. Her energy of character, magnetic personality and active mind made this occupation a delight, and she always spoke with the greatest pride and pleasure of her school-teaching days. Her interest in education never flagged, and in later years, when her children were pupils, she was as regular in her visits to the schools as any of the committee. Mrs. Abbott possessed a remarkable personality. She had great social charm, logical and brilliant mental powers and the most unswerving spiritual ideals. She was especially fond of young people, and her fluent talk and ready wit made her always an entertaining companion. Few persons were better informed on local history. Her mind was a storehouse of dates and genealogies, and her memory was infallible. Her standards in life and literature were of the highest; her judgment of character was instantaneous and unerring; her love of truth and justice a passion. Courage, fidelity, affection and extreme conscientiousness were her marked characteristics.2
  • Hannah married John Abbott, son of Lieutenant Amos Abbott and Judith Morse, on November 12, 1856 in Warner, Merrimack County, New Hampshire, at the home of her parents.1
  • Hannah died on April 22, 1898 in Concord, Merrimack County, New Hampshire, at age 70. She had long been a sufferer from nervous exhaustion.3
