Re: Fletcher-Brooks 1869 Bible (TN) Transcript/Images

In Reply to: Re: Fletcher-Brooks 1869 Bible (TN) Transcript/Images by Jimmy Lee Brooks of 505

I am unsure of James Monroe "JM" Brooks's siblings but have found some good indications of probable brothers, uncles, or cousins through dozens of land deals in Shelby Co., TN during the 1840-60 period. The land deals were signed by Elijah Brooks (b. abt. 1815), Alfred Brooks (b. 1815-1820), James M. Brooks (b. 1818), William Brooks (b. abt. 1820) & Robert H. Brooks (b. 1bt 1832), Cannon L. Brooks (b. 1826-1827) all together.

I checked all of their children (according to Censuses) & found no George.

An 1850 Census shows JM being b. in NC while the others were b. in TN. They were here in Shelby Co by 1842. I have found some indication that the father might have been named James or Elijah.
