From "A Genealogy Of The Clark Family", by Henry William Clark, 1905:

Robert J. Brooks and Emily Judith Clark were united in marriage at the residence of the bride's parents, October 19, 1852, in Jasper County, Georgia. They resided for some time at Snapping Shoals, Georgia, thence moved to Morrisville, Calhoun County, Alabama, where he was employed in a manufacturing establishment. He returned with his family to Snapping Shoals, Newton County, Georgia, thence to Griffin, Georgia. Brooks was a skilled mechanic and in the winter of 1859-60, moved with his family to Pinelevel, Montgomery County, Alabama where he began the manufacture of sash, doors, blinds, furniture, gins, etc., and was thus engaged when the War Between the States began in 1861. It was soon apparent that this business would not prosper pending hostilities and he wound up his business in Alabama in 1862, and returned with his family to Jasper County, Georgia. Soon after moving to Georgia he entered as a volunteer private in the Confederate States Army and died in camp near Richmond, Virginia, July 12, 1862.
