Rev. Peter Haverly Brooks, son of Aaron Swart and Fanny (Duncan) Brooks, was born in Glenville, New York, December 16, 1837. He was educated in the Schenectady union school, and Union College, class of 1862; graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary, 1864; and received the degree of D.D. from Union University in June, 1897. As licentiate he supplied about one year, in 1864-65, the pulpit of the Presbyterian church at Tom's River, New Jersey; was ordained and installed by the presbytery of Albany, New York, July 11, 1865, pastor of the Presbyterian church in West Milton, New York, and served three years; was pastor of the Knowlton and Hope Presbyterian churches in New Jersey three years; in 1871 became pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, Susquehanna, Pennsylvania, serving in that capacity eighteen years, until 1889; was temporary supply of the First Presbyterian Church of Wilkes-Barre, 1890, during the illness of the pastor, Rev. F.B. Hodge, and at the same time was Presbyterial missionary under appointment of the Lackawanna Presbytery. One of the sources of pride of Dr. Brooks is his wonderful penmanship, which excites the admiration of all who are privileged to see it. In his twenty years' service as stated clerk of Lackawanna Presbytery, he has completed five different records of the proceedings, each one containing about five hundred pages. The writing shown in these is of various styles and all are marvels of execution and neatness. They are said to be the most wonderful records of the kind ever seen in any part of the globe. In addition to this in 1864 he wrote the Lord's Prayer four times upon the space covered by a silver three-cent piece. It was written with the naked eye, and can be read clearly and distinctly.

In July, 1890, Dr. Brooks removed to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, where he now lives. For twenty years he has been stated clerk of the Lackawanna Presbytery, which position he holds in connection with his Presbyterial mission work and during the same period he has been a regular correspondent for several religious papers, having for one year the preparation of blackboard designs for the "Westminster Teacher", with notes on Sunday school lessons. His published books are: "History of the Lackawanna Presbytery", 1888; "Fifty Golden Years", on the pastorate of the Rev. N.G. Parke, D.D., of Pittston, Pennsylvania, 1894; "Eden's Sunny Slopes", 1897, illustrating the first and second chapters of Genesis, with twenty original designs.

Dr. Brooks married, in Kingston, New Jersey, September 1, 1864, Kate S., daughter of Aaron and Lydia Van Dyke (Van de Veer) Colby. Mrs. Kate S. (Colby) Brooks was a graduate of the normal school in Trenton, New Jersey. Her father, Aaron Colby, who died in Kingston, New Jersey, November 24, 1883, was by occupation a teacher. He enlisted in 1861 under the first call for volunteers in the civil war, being then fifty years old. His father was John Colby, of Amesbury, Massachusetts; his grandfather, Elliott Colby, and his Uncle Stephen, were revolutionary soldiers. The American ancestor of this Colby family was Antonie Colby, who sailed from England and settled in Boston in 1630, and afterward in Amesbury, Massachusetts, dying in 1661. He married Lydia Van Dyke Van de Veer, daughter of Cornelius Van Dyke and Catherine Van de Veer, of Rocky Hill, New Jersey. The American ancestor of this family was Cornelius Janse Van de Veer, who came from Alckmaar, in North Holland, to America in 1659, in the "Gilded Otter", and settled in Flatbush, Long Island. He was magistrate in 1678-80, and his name appears in Governor Dongan's land grant in 1685. He married F. Gillis de Manderville.
