thanks to your help i have found a birth location for George Brooks. he was born in Wyoming county new york on may 15, 1821 and passed away jul 23, 1869 in whiteside county. i contacted the courthouse in whiteside county and they couldn't produce a death certificate as they only had records back to 1880...the information I found on here listed no known parents ???? what to do now....thank you so much for your help!
