I have a nephew that resembles Preston S Brooks a lot. But can not make a connection. All I have is, Sampson Brooks (b-1805) married Permelia Snellgrove (b-1815)in Edgefield Sc.This is my son's line on his dad's side. I have all the connections after Sampson's son David Morgan Brooks til now. But have been hitting road blocks past Sampson.
If anyone is able to glance at that book and find any information on Sampson I would greatly appreciate it. I suspect Esau Brooks being Sampson's father but no connection has been found.
