Marcus BROOKS and Joseph HAMELBACK
Posted by: Gary Northen Jr (ID *****6981) Date: March 22, 2003 at 08:47:19
  of 887


Trying to locate where my great-granfather, Marcus (maybe Marquis) Delafayette BROOKS, is buried. I have a copy of his death certificate which states the undertaker was German and Co. in Steele, MO and the place of burial was Mt. Zion Cemetery, MO. The certificate only lists MO, no city or township. He was born June 12, 1867 and died July 26, 1929.

From reading other postings, it appears there may be more than one "Mt. Zion", so driving directions or a specific location description would be good. If someone can help me locate his grave, it would be greatly appreciated. I have found limited resources to adequately research this from Louisiana.

My great-grandmother Martha Harrison NAYLOR Weaver Brooks moved to Louisiana in the 1930s and is buried here. Others that may be buried near Marcus BROOKS (and I would like to verify, if so) are his 1st wife Mattie ANTHONY, his parents James Franklin BROOKS (1832-1893) and Sarah RICHARDSON Brooks (1841-1932), and/or his grandparents Midget BROOKS (1799-1874) and Rebecca O'NEAL Brooks (1802-1871). I've not found where they are buried either. It appears the BROOKSes came to Pemiscot County in the 1850s.

Along the same type request is to locate my great-grandfather Joseph HAMELBACK. He was born March 1835 in Germany and immigrated to the US about 1849. He appears in the 1880 and 1900 Censuses for Pemiscot in the Braggadocio Township. His son Emerson HAMELBACK lived his entire life in the Braggadocio area so I expect that Joseph died in that are. Pretty much any information about Joseph would be appreciated. I do not know my great-grandmother's name. She apparently died in the 1880s. Their children were Josephine, George, Melvina, Emma, and Emmerson. On December 22, 1892, Joseph married Jane Skinner. If his grave can be located, I like to know if any other Hamelbacks are buried nearby. He did have a grandson named Joseph who was born in 1904 and buried in Malden, MO. There may be variations of the surname. Census records, marriage records, and even birth records shown significant differences in spelling.

Again, any information is greatly appreciated.
