James Brooks & Malinda Robinson on October 4, 1838, by Thomas W. Carlisle, JP.
From the April 12, 1893 issue of "The LaFayette Sun":

A Good Woman Gone.

Last Saturday, April 8th, Mrs. Malinda Brooks departed this life at her home in this place. She had been in feeble health for some time, and her relatives and friends were not unprepared for the fatal issue. She was buried on Sunday evening. Dr. Bledsoe and Sturdivant conducting the funeral services at the home of the deceased, in the presence of a large number of kindred and friends. Mrs. Brooks was in the 70th year of her age, the greater part of her long life having been spent in this vicinity. She was greatly beloved by all who knew her; she was so kind, gentle and affectionate in her nature that she won all who came in contact with her. For many years she had been a member of the Primitive Baptist Church, and her Christian life was a beautiful exemplification of the faith that reigned in her heart. She lived in daily communion with Him to Whom she long ago gave her trust and her love. The Bible was to her the book of God its pages beamed with light and wisdom as she daily read its sacred teachings. Few more saintly women have ever lived in this community none for whose Christian character greater respect was shown and felt. To her children and grandchildren she leaves the precious heritage of a godly life, filled with faith and love and charity. As has been truly said by one of her neighbors; "Sister Brooks loved everybody and everybody loved her." This eloquent tribute expresses volumes. May God be with the bereaved family and lead everyone of them to tread in that way that shall lead at last to a bright and eternal reunion in the City of God.

In another part of the same issue of "The LaFayette Sun":

Mrs. Malinda Brooks.

We are pained to announce the death of this excellent Christian woman, which occurred last Saturday at her home in this place. Mrs. Brooks was very much esteemed in this community for her gentle, Christian character. Everybody had the utmost confidence in her Christian profession and loved her for her kind, amiable disposition. The bereaved family has the deepest sympathy of many friends, to which the condolence of The Sun is sincerely added.
