Brooks and Bates Families
Posted by: Jerry Brooks (ID *****1870) Date: January 09, 2005 at 10:10:56
  of 805

Seeking information on the parents of Jenny Bates Brooks, born abt. 1827 in KY. She married Willis Brooks. Jenny had brother, Thomas Jefferson Bates, living in Robertson Co., TX. Also seeking information on parents or siblings of Willis Brooks, born abt. 1806 in KY. Willis was killed in the Civil War by "Confederate Home Guards" and Jenny and son killed those who killed him and his oldest son. I am hoping to connect this family to my Bates and Brooks GG Grandparents living in Franklin Co., AL. Any information on this family will be appreciated.
