Arthur Brooks Roberts
When I Googled "Arthur Brooks Roberts" I found your post inquiring about more information on the Brooks Family. Did you find an answer to your question?
I am from the Roberts Family - I had my gg grandfathers probate records researched in Andrew County, MO and a number of references to Arthur Brooks Roberts (AB)were found in the documents. Arthur was the executor of my gg grandfather's estate as well as performing the funeral service for him - John C Roberts. Both are from Greene C, TN and I am trying to figure out how these two are connected - my suspicion is that John C was married twice and Arthur is the son from the first marriage to Polly Sands - all speculation of course.
Any collaboration would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Jim,
I just wanted to thank you for including the inscription on the stone of Levina Abbott Turpen, #63365708, and also her husband Edward Turpen. So many people don't and they are almost impossible to read on the stone. Keep up the good work!

Mary was the DTR of James L. & Marta M.(McDowell)Spelce. James was the son of my GGGG Gparents, Bluford Spelce & Lavina (Massengale)Spelce.

RE: Brooks married Thompson

Yes I have this census,

((In the 1860 census there is a J. F. Thompson, 16 year old female and P. M. (Peter Moses Jr.?) Thompson age 14, living with the A. J. McCallum family.))

Yes I have Mack Irvin for the brother of Willie

My Brooks family, the one year old you mention is James Hillary Brooks My G Gfather,

Now his dad James A Brooks census,

1860 Bedford
1865 marriage to Jennett F in Williamson
1870 Xenia, Clay, ILL
1873 back in Williamson marriage to Willie
1880 back in Bedford with his kids for sure.
1900 move to Manchester, Coffee
1912, Burial Blanton's Cemetery in Coffee

I have know research that my Brooks family were ever in Greene County, Tenn,

But I do have some Roberts living in Coffee, Tenn in my tree William Riley Roberts married Eliza Jane Keller in 1852., no Arthur Brooks Roberts, sorry.

Some day I hope to find Jennett F Thompson, I have an Aunt named after her, Jean Jennette Frances Brooks, WoW do you think Jennett Thompson middle name is (Frances)??

It's Great to hear from you.
