States: Texas: Kaufman
Hello. I think we may be distant cousins. I am descended from a Brooks family also from that area of Alabama and my family moved to the Kaufman Co. area in the 1880's. But, I am not down Williams line. My g. great grandmother was Hannah Dicy Stafford (Chandler), she was born in Florence, AL (Lauderdale Co., which is right next to Limestone Co.) in 1849 to Abel Carmon Stafford and Mary Ann BROOKS. Mary Ann Brooks was the daughter of James Andrew Brooks and wife Dicy Wilson. Their children were Wilson H., James Andrew, Elizabeth Cason, Polly H., William (b. 1824), Samuel King, Frances Ann and Mary Ann. James and Dicy lived in Orange County, NC before they moved to Florence. Do you think we might be related? My gg grandmother Hannah (daughter of Mary Brooks) is buried in the Cana Cemetery, in VanZandt Co., Texas with numerous Chandlers. I hope to hear from you soon.
