Birth: Sep. 2, 1889
Wilbarger County
Texas, USA
Death: Aug. 25, 1973
Hale County
Texas, USA

Pearl Ella Starkey Brooks was two years of age when her parents brought her from Wilbarger County to Collingsworth County,Texas. They settled at Bradley Flats, later called Plymouth, Texas. She grew up in the Plymouth Community, attended Lake Creek School and Lake Creek Baptist Church. Here she was organist and took part in the church work. She later was sent to Paducah, Texas, to attend High School. After marriage, she and her husband, James William "Bill" Brooks, farmed in Plymouth until 1919, when they bought a farm near Des Moines, Union Co., New Mexico. Here they farmed and two of their five children were born. They helped establish the first consolidated school with the first bus line running from their home to Des Moines, a distance of thirteen miles. The extreme cold weather and blizzards caused them to move back to Texas, locating near Abernathy in Hale County where they lived the balance of their lives.
