BROOKVILLE ONCE THRIVING VILLAGE OF 200 RESIDENTS
(ROLL) IRELAND pointed where such landmarks as the old Methodist church, the Baptist church, the saw mill, blacksmith shop, and others once stood. He pointed out where the old tannery was located where ISAAC NEWTON WILLIAMS, grandfather of WALTER E. WILLIAMS, Fairfield, was murdered. WILLIAMS operated the tannery, and hired a man to run the business while he was in the army during the Civil War. Shortly after WILLIAMS returned, he and the man got in an argument over the war, and WILLIAMS was stabbed.
