Renee, My Brooks file is fairly long so I will send it to your private email. Our cousin Barb told me that James Brooks fathers name was John. She is decended from James' brother John. I had that Elizabeth's (Betsy is/was a common nickname for Elizabeth) mother's name as Jane Peters. My great grandmother was living next door to her family with a Jane Peters, age 50, born in England in the 1850 census. It's possible Peters comes from a second marriage or they may have just been neighbors. There was another thread on this board or the GenForum board about John Brooks in Athens and Washington Co. Ohio area but I have not had time to check into it yet. My primary sources have been census reports, obituaries and some birth, death and marriage records online. Thank you so much for the death info on James and Elizabeth. We had the month and year of Elizabeth's death because my great grandmother went back to Ohio when she heard she was ill. She arrived too late to see her before she died. Twenty-two children is sure a lot of kids. I wonder if there were any twins. I would love to have copies of the death certificates if you have them. Also a photo of the grave site and stone when you get them. Any info you have on the brothers and sisters marriages, children etc would be great. I will send for the military record for James and copy that to you when I get it. Thelma
