All children born in Franklin Co., VA, probably all at Union Hall.

All children were married in Franklin Co., VA.

There were two different Brooks families in Franklin Co. in the late 1700's. Most knew each other but could never figure out how they were related. And, apparently, most of us haven't yet.

The other Brooks line (mine) was Levi Brooks and his wife, Nancy Hamblin, who came to Franklin Co. from Charlotte Co., Va. Levi's father was Joel Brooks, b. bet 1750-1760 in Prince Edward Co., Va. AFN: 1869-NXN
