LaMarr and I work on the same line of SC Brooks. One of Emory Luallen Brooks' sons was named Zeb Vance Brooks. He was born Mar, 1893 in Madison Co, NC; died May 24 1955 in Spartanburg, SC.
I am in touch w/ Fred Charles Brooks who is interested in taking the DNA test. If you have any known Brooks male cousins to test, this would help us all determine if this Allen Vance Brooks and our Pleasant Mack Brooks (1827 Cocke Co, TN) are related.
Hope to hear more from you soon.
