I'am African American, My Brooks family is one of the largest and oldest in this country. My great-great grand father was Champ(Charles)Brooks born on or about 1834 or 1832, His parents was Peter and Rosia Brooks, they had a daughters named America and Mariah, and a son named Palms, I know there were more children,because slaves had alot of children,I know there was a Brooks plantation in GA. In 1858,he married Lottie,Creek Indian-which in 1860 they lived in Chambers County in the area of Fredonia,Lanett,Lafayett, and Opelika, and Tuskegee Alabama. and some the Brooks family lived in WestPoint GA. If you have any information pl contact me at 732-693-6358 and maybe I can share some with you I have our African Name and the Tribe we come from. thank you in advance for your help.
