Hi. Two things. First - Brooks is in Waldo County and this family had a lot of descendants there.
Second - I think I know which genealogy you were directed to for Joseph and Hannah (Young) Roberts and I am pretty sure they have the wrong ancestors there. They tie him into the Joseph Roberts family of Dover, NH, which is my ancestry, and he doesn't belong there. You should try to check out Tom Jacobsen's "The Robertses of Northern New England", which does a good job of trying to find the right ancestors of that Joseph. It's available from Heritage Books ( and at a lot of the libraries in Maine and NH. Good luck! Let me know if there's anything else that I may be able to help you with here.
