While looking through the Brooks inquiries, I found your about Virgil Brooks. Was he the son of Andrew Jackson and Laura Bell Bass Brooks? If this is the same family, my mother in law is the granddaughter of Andrew and Laura Bell. She just turned 90 years old and is having trouble remembering things from the past.
Laura Bell died in 1968, just shortly after my son Robert was born. She was in hospital whe we took Robert for her to see. I have a 5 generation photo with her holding Robby. That was in April or May 1968.
Do you know where she and Sam are buried. My MIL says the cemetery is near Vilonia, Ark. but doesn't remember where. My MIL is Madie Thomas Peterson.
If we are on the same track, you may also be researching the Bass, Thomas, and Gibbs family. Thank you inadvance for any help that you may be able to provide on this family.
