ZEMERY BROOKS was a Blacksmith and is listed in the 1850 Gwinnet County, Georgia Census with his wife and four children.

All this information, and more is contained in a Family Tree sent to me several years ago by a descendant of Jacob R. Brooks. It is in paper form and covers 74 pages (37 both sides). I did have it on my computer but have had several crashes since, computer has been down months now so file is probably lost. If you would like a paper copy, let me know. I am in the UK.

My husband is a BROOKS descended from a so far parent-less JEREMIAH BROOKS, b. 1773 in VA. Jim has recently joined FamilyTreeDNA and had the Y-DNA test done (Paternal line for males only) and is now also having the Family Finder test done (male and female). It is worth considering if you haven't done one yourself.
