G.D. Brooks and Miss Lithy Hand on December 4, 1891, by W.W. Meadors, JP, "at my residence". G.D. (x) Brooks and Jesse M. (x) Finley, LS.
"The LaFayette Sun" - February 21, 1912:

In Memory of Mrs. Talitha Brooks.

Mrs. Talitha Brooks died January 25th, 1912, and her body was laid to rest in Pleasant Grove Cemetery. The funeral was conducted by Elder Welch. She leaves a husband, nine children and many friends to mourn her death. She was 41 years old the 21st day of last December.
During her last illness she was attended by many friends of long years standing, and bore her sufferings bravely. Just before she died she said she was tired and worried and asked someone to pray, and prayer was led by Sister Janie Pool and her dear sister, Mrs. Alice Knight, who stood by her bedside until death separated them. She called her husband to her bedside and kissed him good-bye, and said "Lord help me and take me home," and her sweet smile bid us all farewell.
May the Lord bless her husband, her children and her friends.

- J. C. Blanks.
