Mike I got more information to share with you. My greatgrandfather Robert Langley Brooks was born on April 18, 1832. His mother's name was Fanny. She was the daughter of a slave owner. He himself was the son of a English mother and a Mulatto father who disappeared to Canada soon after his birth. He was raised by Mary Diggs Brooks (a slave cook) and her husband Edward Brooks (her slave husband). Please let me know if you able to find out any more info.
