In Reply to: Eddie Preston Brooks and Annie Sedalia Faulkner Brooks, 1900 Texas by Tammye Nash of 847

Hi Tammye,

The Death Certificate for Eddie Preston Brooks shows his parents as A. P. Brooks & Josephine Hoyle. I believe the "A" stands for Alva.

1900: Church Hill, Rusk Co., Texas

Preston Brooks (head) 40/May 1860 TX>GA>AL Farmer
Married 23 Years
Josephine Brooks (wife) 48/Jan 1852 AL>GA>GA 9 Children, 7 Living
Arthur Brooks (son) 21/Sep 1879 TX Farm Labor
Henry Brooks (son) 17/Apr 1883 TX Farm Labor
Lewis Brooks (son) 15/Oct 1884 TX At School
Alvie Brooks (son) 13/Feb 1887 TX At School
Bonnie Brooks (daughter) 10/Feb *1880 TX At School
Eddie Brooks (son) 7/Apr 1893 TX At School
Verner Brooks (daughter) 5/Dec 1894 TX
Martha "Hoyel" (mother-in-law) 70/Jan 1830 GA>GA>GA (WD) 9(?) Children, 3 Living
*Obviously wrong.

In 1910, only Edd & Verna are with their parents. It shows that Josephine has had 8 children, 4 are surviving. It also shows that it's the 2nd marriage for both of them & that they've been married 18 years.

The only Annie/Sedalia Faulkner I find is one that was born April 1896. In 1900, she resides in Church Hill, Rusk Co., Texas. Her parents are Harrison & Amanda (nee Truelock) Faulkner.
