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.

My Grandfather's Name was Wilburn C Brooks.He was born in Georgia in the year 1867.I don't think he had a plantation.The family were Cotton Farmers in Alabama[in Clay County],and the whole family were White as far as I know. Most were fair and had Red Hair.There is a Picture of my Mom in a white Pinafore type dress with a long white bag that hung down her back,picking cotton.We still had two cotton mattresses on beds when I was a teenager.I know they had Share Cropers who were still living there when the siblings got together and desided to sell the Farm.

Hello:

I am African American, and my maiden name is Brooks. My family starts with Champ Brooks, whom was born abt.1834 and in 1858 Champ married a Creek Indian girl from the Towles plantation, which was arranged by their Masters. In 1870 cenus they lived in Fredonia, Chambers County Alabama and they had about 5 children then. Brooks family is one of the oldest and largest African American family in this country. Our African named has been handed down from generation to generation, and the Tribe whence we came from.
