Birth: Jan. 10, 1907
Lincoln County
Tennessee, USA
Death: May 19, 1958
Lincoln County
Tennessee, USA

Henry Franklin Brooks was the husband of Susie M Rudd 1900-1984. He was the son of Harvey Elsberry Brooks 1879-1961 and Martha Menurvie "Nurvie" Jones Brooks 1879-1961. Father of Willard Paul Brooks, Henry Gordon Brooks, David Eugene Brooks, James Edward Brooks, Clydia Joyce Brooks, and Harvey Franklin Brooks.
Henry was born with a disability but he never let it keep him from acheving. Henry was a member of the Woodman of the World. In the August 1958 election, Henry was a candidate for the office of Register in Lincoln County. Many people felt he would have been elected but on May 19, 1958, he died of a heart attack in his home. Not only did the family grieve, but so did many of the people of Lincoln County. One of the ways Henry and Susie helped the community was by keeping foster children. (This from The Heritage of Lincoln County Tennessee 2005, submitted by his daughter Clydia Joyce Brooks Kimbrough). He married Susie M. Rudd, daughter of George Washington Rudd and Martha E Mullins, on July 23, 1927, in Flintville, Lincoln, Tennessee. Paternal grandparents were John Franklin Brooks 1848-1900 buried in Shady Grove Cemetery, Lincoln Co., Tennessee and Margarete Talitha Wooton Brooks 1851-1930 buried in Mount Carmel Cemetery near Huntland, Franklin Co., Tennessee.
