My great-grandparents were Eddie Preston Brooks Sr. (born April 17, 1893?) and Annie Sedalia Faulkner Brooks (born Jan. 2, 1897?). They were married Dec. 14, 1913.
They had six daughters and two sons. The only one of the eight still living is Otis Brooks (who was married to Iris Hays Bridges) and he lives in Henderson. He just turned 90.
Their oldest child was my grandmother, Gladys Gertrude Brooks Hancock. She was born in Rusk County on Sept. 5, 1914. The family moved from Rusk County to Jasper County around 1919 or 1920. I am not sure when, really.
Annie had a sister named Mattie, born 1908, who later married Earl Hancock and moved to Jasper County (actually, she may have moved before she married Uncle Earl).
Anyway, I am trying to find out information on the families of Eddie Preston Brooks Sr and Annie Sedalia Faulkner Brooks, their parents, etc.
I would appreciate any help.
