We have yet to find the reason for Lettie living with the Brooks family, She was Lettie Strum daughter of Alonza S and Mary E "Libby"Sturm
On Lettie's and Andrew's marriage it states his parents as Andrew Denton and Ellen Pack, in his obit he leaves he leaves 1/2 brothers and a sister which she all Elvira Ellen and John Z Brooks children.
There is also a Andrew E Brooks B 1865 in their list of children that we believe is our Andrew Denton.
Thank You for your interest
