George Brooks Date: 9/6/99 11:19:10 PM Eastern Daylight Time
I'm looking for any Brooks researchers who can tell me if the George
Brooks (age 66, wife Cathrine, age 56) who shows on the 1880 Claiborne
Co. census might have had a daughter named Elizabeth, probably b. abt
1843? If so, do you have any idea who she married?
That census also shows a William A. Gwinn, wife Elizabeth, living in
George's household. It would seem that the most likely reason for them
to be there would be some sort of kinship connection.
Any help most appreciated.
Rosannah Willis 9/6/99 11:11:39 PM Eastern Daylight Time
This morning while searching the 1850 Claiborne Co. Census, I found my
gg-grandmother, Rosannah Willis, at the age of 7. The puzzle is, she is
not living with her parents. She is living next door to her future
husband, Matthew Whitaker, who is listed at the age of 6. Matthew's
parents were Timothy and Sarah (Sally) Southern Whitaker. Rosannah is
listed as living in the household of Garrett Southern. Am I safe to
assume that Garrett and Sarah were brother and sister. The ages are
right. Also, wonder is there a family connection between the Southern's
and Willis's before the 1866 marriage of Rosannah Willis and Matthew
Whitaker. In the 1860 census, Rosannah is not listed in Claiborne Co. I
don't know her parents names or if she had siblings, so going back 10
years won't help me. Rosannah died at the ripe old age of 105. I have
her obituary and have been to her grave. I also have a photo of her at
about the age of 100. She still looks to be rather feisty. Any ideas as
to where to go to from here? Any help very much appreciated.....Gayle
Josiah/Joseph ROBART 9/5/99 5:13:31 PM Eastern Daylight Time

connections all lived in the Cumberland Gap area.

Joe, I found your page through a search on the LDS site. I searched for Garland Stanley and was pointed to your Crocket page. I was unable to find any mention of Garland Stanley on the page. Did I miss him some how?
