My gggrandmother is Elizabeth Mary Taylor born 23 Feb 1819 who married George Washington Brooks born 15 Dec. 1804 of Buncombe County, NC. My great grandfather is William Burns Brooks born 12 March 1850. He changed his name to Thomas R. Taylor and moved to Alabama. His brother John Brooks changed his name to Sam Meeks and also moved to Alabama. Their brother James also moved to Alabama but kept the Brooks name. This is my brickwall and would truly appreciate any information you have on the Brooks line. I believe that Bartholomew Taylor (Elizabeth Taylor's line)was a Revolutionary War Soldier and I am trying to apply for The Daughters of the American Revolution. My email is LAWoman64@aol.com
