Jim is directly descended from Jeremiah Brooks via his eldest son David, David was married to Elizabeth (Betsy) Terrell. David's eldest, Hiram Comer, married to Sarah Elizabeth Blaylock. Hiram Comer's second son, Haywood Lafayette, married to Millie Jane Warmack, their 5th son, James Haston, married to Delia Pierce, (Jim's grandparents). James Haston and Delia had only one child, Jim's father Paul, the black sheep of the family! The family definitely stayed in Tennessee for a while, I know James Haston and his brother Richard were both living in Arkansas, whether they moved there as children with their parents, or when they became adults I am not sure, will ask Jim when he gets home. (He has gone off to Scotland for the day with his friend Bob.)
Right now I am in a bit of a panic, I have seven Biblical costumes to sew before this coming Monday, got six cut out last night, so I have got to give them my priority. As soon as I can breathe again, I will get back to you on this! I will need to go through my records first and print out some emails I have stored.
