I am also searching Brooks, Cheek, Crouse, and Edwards - would love to exchange info.
Brooks: Stokes H. and Clarissa Reynolds Brooks - I have lots of info - just want to verify and maybe collect more - like who was Stokes' parents?
Cheek: Looking for the elusive Henderson Cheek and Julia (Juda) Ann Bagley - they were married in Wilkes, but he may have been born in VA and travelled to Wilkes by way of Alleghany.
Crouse and Edwards: I am looking for Stokes Edwards who married Elizabeth Couch abt. 1865 in Surry Co., NC. I know that there is a couple by this name in the Surry/Alleghany/Wilkes Co., NC area during that time - unfortunately the dates are very varied. I am actually particularly looking for information on Henry Houston Crouse and Tinney/Tynna/Tina L. Edwards who were married in the 1880's in Alleghany Co., NC. Their marriage license list Henry's parents as William A. and Mahala Crouse and her parents as Stokes Edwards and Elizabeth. He would have been in his early 20's and she maybe 19 or 20 (sorry, I don't have the document in front of me at the moment). I know nothing of Tinney other than I have been told she may have had a brother "Rome??" and that she was disowned by her family - possibly for being pregnant before marriage. Any thoughts?
