  1. Hello,

    Homer Holden is my great uncle. He was brother to my grandmother Myrtle (Holden) Thompson. I see he is listed on page 252 of the Brookfield History Book. I know he married Anna Patterson. Is any more of this book going to be put on your web site? I am highly anticipating page 252.
    Thanks for reading this.

  2. I was thrilled to find this book, although I only found one mention of the Glysson family, on the Brookfield Center map by Beers 1877.

    I am trying to find out about the original Glysson in the area, Dr. William Glysson who lived in Williamstown.
