from another website: "Infant son of J.M. & H.T. Brooks. . ." If so-
Joab Martin Brooks (7/13/1826 - early 1900's) & Harriet Carraway(died apx 1900) were his parents. His parents lived in the area, so it's a bit puzzling that they are not interned at the Brooks-Henkel Cemetery (could have something to do with Martin Brooks having shot & killed brother-in-law Jim Carraway 1863-4?).
He grandfather, Allen Brooks, had a plantation where the Brooks-Henkel Cemetery is located.
Per Judge Thomas Battle Carroll (a Brooks cousin), who knew "Uncle Martin" & "Aunt Hattie" Brooks:
They had “several children who died early” & "they raised two children to maturity” (1) & (2)
(1) Allen Brooks “was good looking, had jet black hair & blues eyes" married "Lillie Davis of this county" & had abt 3 children. Family left him & lived in Birmingham with her brother J. E. Davis (abt. 1901) After family left he joined 2d Miss. Reg. in Spanish War, Capt Lincoln’s Co., was said to have disappeared within days of company disbanding in Columbus … whereabouts generally unknown
(2) Perry Brooks “is of good habits and is a merchant at Crawford” & member of the Baptist Church married a Miss Peters and had a son, abt 16 (in 1901)
