William Crawford Brooks (9557425)
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for all the work you've done on the descendants of William Crawford Brooks. It has been very helpful in my own research efforts. I really appreciate all the obituaries and photographs you took.

I assume that you are a descendant, as I worked my way into a line of the Brown family at one point, which perhaps you're tied to. I am a descendant of William's brother Thomas Jefferson Brooke, so I suppose we must be distant cousins. Anyhow, thanks again for the significant contributions you've made to the family research!

Ralph Brooks
I am interested in the book: Brooks Family History (History of L. P. Brooks Ancestors & Descendants) 1795-1979 - complied by Barbara Brooks Weir.

Ralph Brooks is my grandfather, and to see the name flip flopped from Brooks to Brooke is interesting, Granddaddy and Uncle Raymond were the only ones to carry that last name among his siblings and to also find out about Canton, Ga my 5th great grand donated land and I grew up in the next county...

Suggest a correction for Josiah Wash Brown - I am family. There is no evidence that Wash Brown was born in Riceville. The 1850 census does confirm Tennessee. Written family stories indicate he was born in Knox co, Tenn. For now it would be best to just list his place of birth as Tennessee.

photos of obituaries posted to memorials
Hello. I am an avid genealogist, and just wanted to say that occasionally I have found a photo of the original obituary on one of my ancestor's memorial, and was thrilled to find it, so I could add it to my Ancestry page for them, and in my files, as well as being able to forward it to other family members. I was sad to read that you don't like them on your memorials, when I have found them so useful to me and my family to save forever.
Thank you for all your hard work for this great and valuable site! God Bless!

Woops! I didn't give you her full name. It's Lucinda Frances Markam Townsend.

Lewcinda Townsend # 27276035
Her name should be Lucinda - it was just misspelled in census records. She was born in NC, not TN, the daughter of James and Janete Markam. Lucinda married James Calvin Townsend in 1853 in Perry Co TN.

FAGl# 27238789 Laura Frances McClain

On the above memorial, you have Laura Frances Lockware McClain. Her maiden name was McElyea. She was born January 28, 1874 in Cherokee County, TX and died July 10, 1972 in Fort Worth, Tarrant, TX. She married Benjamin Alphonso McClain September 2, 1894 in Hunt county, TX.

Would appreciate it if you would correct this or you can assign it to me and I would be happy to be the keeper.

Real Parents of A.A. Timmons
I did some more digging. I think the real father of A.A. Timmons is William Timmons (Find A Grave #8841590). William Timmons was the brother of Alexander Timmons.

In the 1850 census, I find an A.A. Timmons living with his father, William Timmons and his wife, Sarah, living in Cherokee County, GA. I have not found an Find A Grave page for Sarah Timmons). I find the family again in the 1860 census for Cherokee County. This time A.A. Timmons is listed as Ambrose Timmons.

I am able to find him in the 1870 census in Young County, TX. He is living Alexander Timmons, but he is listed after all the younger children. He is also listed with three "other" men (possible ranch hands?).

If you would like me to send you documentation, I will be more than happy. If you totally disagree with my conclusions, no worries. Just trying to help future researchers.

Parents of Alexander Ambrose Timmons
I am curious how you determined his parentage. The couple was married in 1846, but A. A. Timmons was born in 1844. While, that certainly doesn't mean a definite error, I have seen copies of the 1850 census and the 1860 census (when he would have been 4 and 14). He isn't included on either census.
In fact, if you go to their Find A Grave memorial pages, the maintainer of their memorial pages listed their children -- but not an Alexander Ambrose Timmons.
I think it is reasonable that he was related, but I question that this couple was his parents.
