Hi, My great great grand mother, was named Lottie Brooks,born 1845-she was Indian,some of the Brooks was from
Georgia and alot of them are in Alabama, we are one of the largest and oldest african american family in this country-Lottie husband was named Champ Brooks he was born 1835- he had sisters and brothers,one sister was named Rose. There are some Brooks that reside here in Asbury Park, NJ and Neptune, NJ. One of the Brooks had an Barber Shop in Asbury Park,NJ. I partially grew up in the Asbury Park,Neptune area,I work at the Monmouth County Superior Court House, In Freehold NJ. There was an Elder James Brooks- that did a research on the Brooks family Tree.but we lost contact with him , If still living he would be in early 80's. He had retired an moved to Opelika Alabama.
