RE: Armstead Brooks
Thank you so much for the information Becky . I do pray for peace for your dear brother and comfort for you. Your friend, Jean.

Armstead Brooks
Hello Becky, a while back you sent me some information on Thomas & Catherine Brooks, who are the parents of my Grand-mother Ella Ann Brooks Leach. I think you mentioned that Catherine is the daughter of Armstead Brooks. Is that correct or is Thomas the son of Armstead? If you ever find the time, I would love to hear from you. Thanks, Jean.

Mary Elizabeth "Lizzie" Earl Brooks
I am looking for Earl family members. Do you know if "Lizzie" Earl Brooks is the daughter of William Jackson Earl and Fannie Easter Large? Is she the sister of Iva Lawrence Earl, Frank Earl, Jessie Earl, and Eltred Kyle "Dude" Earl?

Becky, it probably is one and the same. That cemetery is on a steep mountain. Scares me to drive there.

RE: Rhoda E. Chadwell
A transfer would be fine. If a closer family member turns up, I can always re-transfer. Appreciate your work as it's unlikely that I would have ever found her on my own.

Welcome, I'll be happy to transfer if this is your family.

Find A Grave now reports that the two memorials have been "merged." So, I guess that they did get your message, though they did not specifically reply.

RE: Edna Brooks Baily
Oh girl you have no idea. The duck pool is solid ice, with little ducky footprints all across the top...they think I've taken the joke just a little too far and are shooting me dirty looks.

You are so very welcome for all the Find A Grave stuff, and you know I'll be happy to transfer anybody you need.

Blankenship / Brooks
Hi, Pooh Bear.
I recently noticed that you had provided some information to Edie Doepel regarding Lizzie Brooks, whose memorial is #28356297. (Edie just transferred the memorial to me, and I've now added Lizzie's full name: Matilda Elizabeth "Lizzie" (Dickerson) Blankenship Brooks. I'm wondering: Are you related to the family, too? (Lizzie's first husband Columbus Blankenship was my great-granduncle). I see you have a virtual cemetery called "Brooks family" so perhaps your connection is through the Brooks'. But I was intrigued to see that you knew that Lizzie was Henry B. Blankenship's mother and Columbus Blankenship's wife (before she married Lewis Brooks). If you are related to the Blankenships I'd love to correspond and share info with you. I'm also wondering if you know where Columbus is buried?
Thank you so much.

Becky, I have changed name to Ima. NOW I remember name as Ima not Irma. Very dear friends growing up years and mother of some best friends. I wondered if you are related. Two of her sons are at Roseberry.

RE: Roxie Herrell Brooks
Harrell/Herrell. All of the same family. My GGgrandmother was a Harrell, Nancy Elizabeth Harrell, daughter of John James Harrell and Lovell "Lovey" Caroline Fletcher. Family members lived in Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri, Texas, etc. It is a very large family that spread throughout the country.

Thank you for you assistance.

Juanita Brooks
I have added the date of death for Juanita. Thank you for that information. Juanita was my mother's first cousin. Her father was my grandfather's brother on the Farley side. Are you perhaps relation on the Brooks side?

RE: Thanks Pooh Bear!!
Yep, I assume we are indeed cousins in several ways. I have my genealogy online here:

Also, email me at and I can send you some photos of Charlie and Laura if you like.

Thanks Pooh Bear!!
I've link Charlie and Laura to my grandfather Frank Davidson. Amazingly, I remember my great-grandmother Laura, but I was too young to comprehend that she was an actual relative, she lived next to one of my great-aunts and would always walk over (about 30 steps away) whenever were went down there on vacation and visited with everyone. (I live in Louisville).

You had provided her maiden name and link to her parents...but when I started to add mother as:

Lucy Pace - 100808227

it matched to Matlida Pace, born 1880.

Margaret Brooks Bailey, Bailey Cemetery
So she was a Brooks, was she? What else do you know about this family -- Brooks and Bailey both? I haven't figured out yet where they fit in. :(

Thanks for your help!

RE: Ruth Moyers Norton
Thanks Becky, Hughie & Cedell are both buried in Greasy Hollow. If you don't have time to go there, let me know and I will find their numbers. Take care... Jean ღ

Brooks family
Hello Pooh Bear,

It looks as if you have done a great deal of work on the Brooks family in and around Claiborne County. My dad, Kenneth Albert Brooks (1913-1983) was from there. His dad was John William Brooks (1880-1950) and his mom was Dora Dean Baker Brooks (1883-1952). They are buried in the Cottrell-Johnson cemetery in Harrogate, Tenn.

Have you done any work that might help me get further back in the Brooks line with any certainty? I have my great-granddad as James A. Brooks, but I can't swear to any of that!

Thank you,

Marsha Brooks Guerard

I have not found his burial spot as of yet. Keep hoping I will run into some documentation. Will keep your e-mail so I can let you know if I find anything.

I made the links, and a few more. I am always a little behind, but try to do each memorial the best I can for my relatives. I think we are probably related, as you have all my family names and the same place where my parents are from. That's alot to trace. I have only touched the surface.

Thank you for leaving my husband Robert a token, today was our 47th Wedding Anniversary, and it was a little hard for me.

Have a great day.
