RE: Pyle
Hi Lynn... as you can see, I don't get my messages often! Yes I recall (vaguely, haha) our past contact. Making any progress??

RE: Vera (Polson) Brooks
My e-mail address is If you can scan the photos and send them it's possible that I can help identify them, or know someone who knows who they are. My mom's cousin who grew up in Randolph County and lives in Moberly is still living (and in her 90's). I have seen many photos of the Polson family (my grandmother's maiden name was Polson).
I have also seen the "virtual pet" website and have been in touch with Gary. I was able to identify all of the people in the photos, except the guy on the horse. :-)

Vera (Polson) Brooks
I loved the photo you shared of Vera. Her grandfather (Reuben R. Polson) was my great-great-grandfather's brother. I've been trying to put together the family on FindAGrave and sent a link edit to the person who created the memorial for Logan Polson requesting that he add Logan's parents to his memorial. Do you have any photos of Reuben Polson? I love trying to imagine what my GGgrandfather would have looked like. John E. Polson died around January of 1864 (likely in the Civil War) so we have no photos of him.

I have transferred her memorial to you since she is directly related to you and only indirectly to me, but we have a lot more in common. My maiden name was Brooks also and looking through your memorials i find a lot of my family names would be interested in conversing further with you and if there are others that you are more closely related related would be willing to transfer those also. Always good to find another cousin... My line is through
Marys' uncle William Noah Davenport.

Oh...I also found Susan Chaffee Whitaker's death certificate and posted it.

RE: Abraham Whitaker 20646608
NP I believe now you should have the Whitaker lineage all the way to Jonathan Find A Grave Memorial# 96453314 (1696-1786) The line has been documented back two more generations but it isn't on Find A Grave. If they find were they were buried, it will probably be close to Haverhill, Mass. were they lived.

William Henry Brooks line
Sure! Feel free to email me through my website. I do have to tell you that though I'm aware of the controversy of Jesse Thomas Ross Brooks and Martha Ann Brooks, all that I know of it is the little I've gleaned online (you certainly have more info than I), and I didn't pursue it as I felt that those who descended down the line would be the ones who would eventually able to sort out the situation. Though, in genealogy, eventually can mean longer than one wishes! When entering their info in my personal database, I did show them as having the same parents but I did that so it would be a kind of flag for me of questionable information that needed review. I actually haven't even done that much research on my own Brooks line other than tracing them through the census.

RE: Thomas Ross BROOKS 67440475

If related it is likely quite remotely. As I wander the Web I tend to drop memorials here and there for general principles.

It is late and my mind had one of those moments. I see you manage a memorial at Mt. Vernon. i have 9 grand parents there. Susan and I put up a sign for the cemetery in 2012. I try to clean it up each year, but it seems to always get away from me. We would like to fence it, as the farmers seem to get closer and closer to the edge ever year. Well, take care. David and Susan

You're very welcome, Lynn! I was writing you a few details and questions last night but hit a wrong key (an unfortunate common occurrence!) and never got back to it. Mainly wanted to let you know that I have not been to that Brooks Cem so don't have pictures. That info came from the Howard Co Cem Records by Botts & Coutts.
I also was asking if you have an obit for Benjamin & Sarah (Taylor) Brooks. I know they both died in 1878 but don't know where they are buried. Her parents were buried in the Taylor-Samuel Cem, which I have been to, but nothing left except the bricks from the wall that surrounded it. The stones were removed years ago, and I probed around enough to feel pretty sure there are no more headstones there.
I also have looked and looked and looked some more for where William & Susannah Brooks may have been originally buried, but have found nothing I would feel sure about.
Anyway, have a good day!

Hi Lynn,
Hope you're doing well this winter. I'm really, really looking forward to spring days!
I'm working a little on Howard Co cemeteries and found this Brooks who I believe is in your tree. Please take a look and let me know if you would like transfers. Sad story - everyone in this cemetery died in a cholera epidemic.

Brown/Rooks/Simpson Families
Got your message, Yes I think I remember seeing them in the 1900 census in Spokane, Spokane Co. WA census records. Have you ever noticed that people marry neighbors or school sweethearts more often than not, so Claribel L. Brown probably had known Thomas Jefferson Simpson for awhile before they ever married. Their daughter Claribel Simpson was their first child, and that is who I remember very vividly, my husband at that time was Charles and Thelma's (Brown) son Glenn LaVern Brown (I was wife #2 for him). His first wife Beverly Wickham-Brown divorced him in 1982 and left him for a priest (which the priest was married and had divorced his wife) and they moved to Atlanta Georgia. Pretty shameful if you ask me! But life happens just the same. Anyway, Claribel Brown was Charles's sister, so their daughter Claribel was a first cousin to Glenn LaVern Brown. Glenn and I use to take a vacation over to Ocean Shores, WA (right on the coastal area of Washington State) and for someone who was young a nice walk to the ocean from their place. My son loved it as well. Claribel and Al were such nice people and I miss them horribly. I only saw that Lillie (Thomas's mother) was married to John Logan and I haven't found any other's for her yet.
If you would like to keep in touch that would be nice? My email is: and maybe we can figure this all out as well.
