I am searching for info on the HOOKS family of Hardin Co. Vernon C. HOOKS' father abandoned him and his mother when he was very small. I do not know what his father's given name was, but believe his mother's name was Ella BUMSTEAD. Any information on this HOOKS family will be greatly appreciated.

Patsy,

I see that my dear cousin, Jim Bumstead, has previously written to you about this. My data conflicts with Jim's and I would like to find out which is correct. We differ in that he shows Austin (Alston?) Hooks to be Vernon Hooks' father, while I have that Austin/Alston is his grandfather -- my data having his father being Henry Allen Hooks. I suspect that both Jim's and my data show the same woman as being his mother -- an Alice Bumstead, though the name we have for her may be in error or incomplete (missing a middle or nick name). (I also think that, if my understanding of Jim's data is correct, that it makes his data suspect ... I believe we have Austin's marriages -- to Elizabeth Forehand and then to Mary "Polly" Cravey well-documented. He would have had to had a child by the Bumstead woman after his marriage to Polly Cravey and he would have been 87 years old at Vernon's birth!)

Below is what I have -- note that my only (recorded) sources are tombstones and SSDI:
