How is he related. I apologize for the delay in responding - had to take a break for a while.

RE: Brooks New Brashiers Chapel Cem., Arab, Al.
Glad to, but would you go to each memorial page, and do a Suggest a Correction for each one? That way it will send me links to each one and also a link to your contributor page. Thanks.

RE: Elizabeth (Betsey) Howell williams Brooks
Per her mother's letter below, she died in Marshall County. I don't know that she's buried at Mt. Tabor, that's just a guess:

William and Martha wrote a letter to their sons and daughter-in-law dated February 4, 1848, which follows:
I onest more take my pen in hand to let your know our situation. We are mosly all porley with colds, but we are all about thrugh the murces of god. We hope thes lines may find you and all your well. Times as usauel ar as when you ware down. I would inform you that your sister Betsy is no more. She left the first day of Feberay. She had forty three fits and expired imediately after the last fit. She bore her aflections, with Christianan foortitude notwithstanding her previs impatence her to four. I told her when I las saw hear, she had along time bin combert about with meney things and not to mind eny things more but look to the lord and she don so and what will be don with the children I don't know.
"Brooks has got no pork lade in yet not ene thing elst hardley. I would inform you that your mother started the sam day you left Goodners and went to Marshael to stay with hear and she had a daughter the leventh of the munth and it was a por litel babey but it is alive and as well and harty. Bascom was thear when she died. Jesey cottes child dide today by the fall of a lad off the house. We nothing more to let you know worth of your atention at present, but remain you father and mother.
(PS) "Tell Mrs. Bomar that little Francis High is one of the purtes babys purhaps she ever saw in hur life". (Valley Leaves, Madison Al-TN Valley Gen Soc of Dec. 1986 , p. 91 and 92)

RE: Brooks
You are more than welcome. It is my pleasure. You can contact me directly at kwanja@centurytel.net

There are many Brooks in the Somerville/West Point community. My grandfather's sister married Uncle James who was James Brooks. I have a good bit of info on his line, but am missing lots also.

You take good care now.....

If you don't know where they were buried, try to find the places they lived by hunting up where they were married, perhap finding a will for one of them;, where their kids were buried etc and go from them. A lot of madison co, al people can also be found in lincoln co., tn as it was only a few miles away.

Good luck ...
don't forget to search on ancestry (some of it is free) and go to google (dot) com and type in different names such as the full name in quotes or William M. Williams in quotes or Martha HIgh or patsy high etc. "Martha High" + Williams
different searches will help you find different things. Good luck!

You need to go to the huntsville library, second floor is all about genealogy as well as the archives (marriages, births, deaths, probate and more). They have great ppl working there and can help you a ton! also the madison County, AL archives has a website.

RE: margaret brooks/ John brooks
I thought you did a beautiful job on the photos.

That contributor "Graveaddiction" refuses to respond to updates on his memorials, or otherwise I'd ask him to link John & Margaret together.

Thanks for your contributions!

RE: brooks family
John Brooks and Margaret Brooks would probably be the two I mentioned in my earlier message.

RE: brooks family
All I know is that Elizabeth Howell Williams Brooks died in Marshall County 1 Feb 1848, but I don't know where she's buried. Her husband, John Brooks, remarried in Marshall County, on Jun 17, 1849, to Margaret Barnett of Tennessee. They had 5 children that I'm aware of. I located John and his second wife in Marshall County in 1850, then in Valhermoso, Morgan County, on the 1860 census. I don't know where he's buried, either.
