Died aged 19 years, so evidently born about 1887. Son of Isham R. BROOKS by his second of three wives, Jerelina "Jerry" (GAMMELL) BROOKS. One account gives the name Clarence instead of Charles. Online database of Linwood Cemetery records shows a Clarence E. BROOKS (no dates) buried in Section A, Lot 32, but no entry for a Charles E. or other C. E. Also in A-32 is Hilden BROOKS.
