Mary Marcell-dau. Arminta Estelleta

Just recently started researching the Brooks-Marcell family of mine. Saw this post by Fan and the name Araminta jumped out at me. Its such an unusual name.
I have very few details such as dates and places but would like to post what I do have in hopes someone can help me .
James Brooks married Mary Marcell. She was thought to have been from California. They had 2 known children--a son who maybe died young and a daughter--Arminta Estelleta who married Hardin Green in Baxter Co Ark around 1897.
Mary Marcell died early into the marriage. James Brooks, as he has been described to me, was a river boat gambler and possible had some political ties. Legend has it , he was in the Hannibal Missouri area where he was involved in a dispute and was injured by gunshot. Some say he died from the wounds and others believe he lived to be old man.
If anyone can shed any light on this family, I would very much appreciate it.
