My Grandfather's Name was Wilburn C Brooks.He was born in Georgia in the year 1867.I don't think he had a plantation.The family were Cotton Farmers in Alabama[in Clay County],and the whole family were White as far as I know. Most were fair and had Red Hair.There is a Picture of my Mom in a white Pinafore type dress with a long white bag that hung down her back,picking cotton.We still had two cotton mattresses on beds when I was a teenager.I know they had Share Cropers who were still living there when the siblings got together and desided to sell the Farm.
