Ethel Estelle was the daughter of Thomas BOHANNON Brooks. There are many that cite his name as Thomas S, but this is not true. Thomas Bohannon Brooks (b. 1865) m. 1/ Peggy Adams. 2/ Luhada Snyder. Thomas' parents were Lucas Thomas 'Luke' & Mary Jane Owens. Parents of Mary Jane Owens were Groner Owens & Martha Ann Williams. Parents of Lucas Thomas were John Richard (Old Dick) Brooks and Mahulda Hargis Brooks. Old Dick & Mahulda owned the Brooks Tanyard about 7 miles east of Lafayette TN. I do have information that continues up the tree for the Brooks family, all the way back to a John Peter Brookes (s/o John Brookes, born around 1610 and Christened in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire, England) that came to Virginia from England in 1638. Story is that John Peter was one of 6 Brookes brothers that came over and their parents originated in Scotland. 3 brothers went North, the other 3 South. John Peter's grandson or G-grandson is where the name changes from Brookes to Brooks. I have all of this information listed in my Brooks family tree and will be glad to share if you are still looking for the info. email me at :)

PS: I am the GG-granddaughter of Lucas Thomas.
