Bio Photo Lynn Ann (Brooks) Gleason
I began doing family research in 1969 after my grandfather died. I inherited a box of letters and old pictures and was so upset that I didn't know who the people were. I continued gathering family stories and information for 12 years, when I packed away my notebooks to raise my family. It just got too difficult to go to the library with a 4 and a 2 year-old.
My husband and I got "the bug" again, and started doing research online. I'm so glad that I started while I could interview our grandparents and my great grandmother! Those stories are priceless.

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.

Not sure how it posted twice. Deleted one of them.

no problem. I happened to still have the picture on my computer so I've added it per your request.

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.
