In the 1910 census, Ben and Willie were the only Abernathy family in Trinity Co. Hence, the birth record of James must have been of their child. The very old (pre-1925) TX birth records often did not show both parents' names, nor even any parent's name. James' parents were not named on his record. (717bv)

In 1920 Lena was three years younger than her sister Lucy; in 1910 Lena was 2 years younger. (717vwfc)

She married Leo Pate Marler and lived in Kleberg Co in 1926. He was born 13 April 1900. Lucy Bell Marler died 1 October 1957 in Harris Co, 13 days after she was struck in the head by the rear view mirror or a truck.

She was a maintenance worker for a building maintenance company. "L P Marler" (son?) was the informant for her death certificate. He did not know Lucy's mother's name, and only knew that Lucy's maiden name was Abernathy. (717bvw, 83d)

(James Edward Stewart was Lizzie’s father, per obit of daughter Annie Jane; see biography of Lizzie’s son James Edward Stewart.) In 1910 they lived in Ellis Co, and in 1920 they were at Whitney, Hill Co. Lizzie had probably moved to Ellis Co from Calhoun Co by 1906 since Elizabeth’s mother Sarah lived with her, and Sarah died in Ellis Co in 1906. Joseph was born in AL on 28 September 1876. He was a blacksmith. Lizzie died at home at Whitney on 3 December 1957 and was a widow when she died.

Published in The Alabama Courier, 31 August 1944:

         Sheriff Martin F. Whitt, 50, died at Morgan Co Hospital Sunday morning from a heart attack which he had been valiantly fighting for over a week.

Sheriff Whitt was the first sheriff in Morgan County to serve two terms, having been elected first in 1939 and reelected last year.

He was born in Tennessee, near Elkton and had lived in Athens since 1919. He was honorably discharged from the Navy after the last war and was a past commander of the American Legion post here. He served with the L & N Railroad for over 20 years and with the TVA after that.

         Known as an outstanding public official, Sheriff Whitt stood high in his community as was attested by the large number of people attending his funeral, one of the largest ever seen here and the great number of flowers were sent.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the First Presbyterian Church at 3 o'clock with Rev. Walter L. Gilmore officiating, assisted by Rev. Frank Hoffman, supply minister. Rev. Gilmore commented in his service that he had brought Martin Whitt into the church here many years ago and had also performed the marriage ceremony when he married Miss Lula Adkins in 1921. Members of the Masonic Order had charge of the grave side services, McConnell directing.

         Sheriff Whitt had been active in civic affairs and besides the American Legion, was a member of the Lions Club, Masonic Order and W.O.W.

As a mark of respect to the deceased, Athens business houses were closed during the services.

         Surviving him are his wife, Lula Adkins Whitt; two sons, Anna Jean and Marjorie Whitt; his mother, Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Whitt of Ardmore; two brothers, Chaplain J. Howard Whitt of the Army and former Baptist Pastor of St. Louis, and W. E. Whitt of Ardmore; three sisters, Mrs. Emma Currin of Tuscaloosa, Mrs. Ella Roper and Mrs. Nell Garrett of Ardmore.

         Active pallbearers were R. A. Troupe, Julius Hale, Ed Evans, Roy Beasley, Jess Hargrove, Knox Biles, Jim Beasley and Greer Clem. Honorary pallbearers were T. E. Gilbert, Bruce Nelson, Dr. Frank Hall, T. S. Woodroof, Sam Bowen, Luther Whitt, Roy Whitt, Tom Smith, George Sherrill Jr., and Mac Kennemer.

         Among those from out of town to attend the funeral were Mrs. Roy Smith of Phoenix City, Mrs. Walter Hobson of Columbus, Ga., Lt. F. Calvin and Sgt. Ed. Blackburn of Fort Benning, Ga., Rabern Adkins and family of Lynnville, Tenn., Mrs. Eula Adkins, Miss Ruth Maples and Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Legg of Bethel, Tenn., Mr. and Mrs. Robert Evans, Dr. and Mrs. Joe Maples and Mr. and Mrs. Mack Maples of Elkmont; James Martin of the OPA district office in Birmingham, Mr. and Mrs. O.

         Glenda Fay Bean [Y5c4b1f2a], daughter of Homer Bean and Eva Provie Hudson, was born b 21 August 1935 at Grandview, Johnson Co TX, and died there on 6 April 1937 of pneumonia. She was buried in Grandview Cemetery. (112bd)


         Jimmie Ray Bean [Y5c4b1f2b], son of Homer Bean and Eva Provie Hudson, was born 21 August 1935 at Grandview, Johnson Co TX, and died 8 September 1936 at Dallas in Bradford Memorial Hospital. He was buried in Grandview Cemetery. (112b,56d)


         Homer Bean [Y5c4b1f2], son of Ora May Beard and a Mr Bean, was born 17 June 1910 in TX, and died at Fort Worth on 30 May 1985. Homer served in WW2 by enlisting in the US Army on 29 October 1943 in Johnson Co. He was married when he enlisted. His wife was Eva Provie Hudson, born in Hill Co on 27 December 1915, daughter of Leslie Hudson and Lizzie _____, and died in Parker Co on 7 October 1992, but lived at Fort Worth when she died. Eva had an aunt named Provie Hudson, born in 18 May 1889; Eva was apparently named after her father’s sister. Eva and Homer had twins born at Grandview, Johnson Co-

Les Hudson was born 16 Aug 1879 at Buford, Ohio Co KY, and died 29 Sep 1934 in Terrell Co TX. He was a son of James J Hudson (born 1848 in KY, and Martha Ellen _____, born 1858 in KY. Les’ parents moved to Wise Co TX about 1883, then to McLennan Co TX by 1900. Les’ wife Lizzie was born in TX in 1885. (TXd, Z,M,112b, 154u, 54w,44wf, 42d,406d)


         William Lee Bean [Y5c4b1f1], daughter of Ora May Beard and a Mr Bean, was born in 1908. (54w,44f)


         Beard and Young people married over the years, and lived in the south central TN counties of Lincoln, Maury, Giles, and Marshall Counties before 1840, and after wards. These two families came to TN from northwest SC. This is a summary of some of these early Beard people. From 1820 to 1850 census records of the Beard-Young area of south central TN, we know that these Beard and Young families came from SC, and the progenitors of the Beard families who possibly married Young people or who had Young in-laws were William, Robert, and Francis Beard, and would have been born early enough to have produced children born in the 1770s. These families moved to TN around the late 1800s to the mid- 1810s. In looking at the 1790 census for SC, there were five William Beard families; two were in Newberry Co, two in Abbeville Co, and one in Spartanburg Co. There was one Robert Beard in Abbeville Co and one in southeast SC in Charleston Co. Francis Beard was not found in SC in 1790, although he was about age 25 then.

         In 1800 in SC there were two Robert Beard families in Pendleton Co, and three William Beard families in Fairfield Co and Newberry Co, but no Francis Beard. All were in the northwest center or northwest corner of SC.

         In 1810 in SC there were five William Beard families, but no Robert nor Francis Beard families (Francis and Robert had recently moved to TN?). One was from Charleston Co in the southeast corner of the state. The one William Beard in Abbeville Co was a young man; the one in Newberry Co was born in the late 1760s, as was his wife, and living in the same county nearby was widow Mary Young born by 1765, with adult children in her home; the William in Edgefield Co (west edge of the state) was born by 1765, as was his wife, and they had four young teenage boys in their home; the remaining William Beard of 1810 was in Sumter Co SC (center of the state), and he was born after 1765. It is likely that William Beard, born 1760, had moved with his children to Lincoln Co TN by 1810, and he was not found there until 1840 because he was living with his married daughters.

         William Beard, not found in Lincoln Co TN until 1840, was born in 1760, and was the father of Francis A Beard (born in 1791). So it would appear that the Beard families found in Lincoln Co and Maury Co TN in 1820 came from Pendleton Co SC, the northwest corner of SC. The Francis Beard found in 1820 Lincoln Co TN was born in 1765 in SC. When two men of the same family name, born in the same place, move to the same place in a new state, then we can be fairly certain that they are brothers. James Beard of early Maury Co may have been another brother.

         Robert Beard was one of three early men of that name who lived in the Giles Co and Lincoln Co TN area in the pre-1820 years. The eldest one married Elizabeth Young [Y5b], daughter of Thomas Young and Mary _____ of Spartanburg Co SC. Robert was born about 1780 in SC. Since census records show that their elder children were born in SC, they must have married in SC before moving to TN. Therefore they likely lived in the same county, or in neighboring SC counties. Robert and Elizabeth, and presumably her father, moved to Lincoln Co TN about 1809 or 1810. The 1810 census for this area of TN has not survived, but later census records show that people were born in these counties in the pre-1810 years.

         In 1820 a Robert Beard family was found at Columbia, TN and also two were in Lincoln Co. From the ages of the adults, all families could have been Elizabeth's, but the number of, and the ages of the children differed. Since Elizabeth Young's sister Mary Young [Y5c] married Robert’s elder brother Francis Beard and they lived in Lincoln Co in 1820 and 1830, it is likely that one of the Lincoln Co Roberts was the husband of Elizabeth Young. The Maury Co Robert Beard lived at Columbia; his close neighbors were James Guest, Joseph Young, and tavern owner Jeremiah Cherry, all well established business men who were known to live within Columbia’s city limits. This Robert Beard was born between 1776 and 1794, so he will, for now, be called Robert #3 since he was the youngest of these three Robert Beard men. Robert #3 was married by 1820 and had four children, all under age 10; three were boys and one was a girl. This Robert’s wife was about the same age as he was. There were also two other Beard men living nearby: James and Samuel Beard, and two other Beard families in western Maury Co at Williamsport. James was the eldest of all the Maury Co Beard families, born before 1776, while all the others were born in the 1776-1794 years. So James could have been the likely father of the two who lived in the Columbia area.

         In 1820 in Giles Co and in Marshall Co there were no Beard families. There were two Robert Beard families In Lincoln Co in 1820. One was born before 1775 and had two sons and two daughters under age 10, plus four young adult females in his home in addition to his wife. The wife was a few years younger that Robert; she was born between 1776 and 1794. This Robert will be temporarily called Robert #2. His close neighbors were many Parr, Whitley, Bonner, and Turner families. This Robert and his family were on census page 151A. Close to Robert #2 was George B Beard, born 1776-1794, with no wife. He had a son and three daughters in his home in 1820. Robert #2 was the husband of Elizabeth Young.

         The third Robert Beard family, the second one in Lincoln Co, was born in 1775 or before, had a wife with the same birth date, and they had a son and daughter under age 10, two sons and a daughter born 1805-1810, and there were four young adult females in his home. He will be called Robert #1, and was on 1820 census page 112A. He was the Robert Beard who was alive in Lincoln Co in 1850. His close neighbors in 1820 were Mary Young, probably Robert’s widowed mother-in-law or sister-in-law. Mary had three sons born no earlier than 1795, plus four daughters (or daughters-in-law?) born no earlier than 1795, indicating that Mary was likely born around the early 1770s. Other close neighbors were Davis, Winters, Smith, Trimble, Carothers, Cox, Huckaby, and Jennings families. Also in Lincoln Co in 1820 were three other Beard families: Absolom Beard (born 1776 to 1794) on census page 128B; Alexander Beard (born 1776 to 1794) on census page 146A, and Francis A Beard (born 1775 or before) on census page 111B. This Francis A Beard was a brother of William Beard, born in 1760 (see 1840 summary below); Francis was still alive in 1850 in Lincoln Co, with his wife Mary, and some children in his home. He was born in SC in 1765; his children living with him were born in SC if they were born by 1812. He appears to be the Francis Beard in Pendleton Co SC (northwest SC) in 1810 with a wife of about the same age. Living close to him in 1810 was James Beard, who was older (probably his father). These were the only Beard families in Pendleton Co. The neighboring counties (Spartanburg, Greenville, and Laurens) had no Beard families in 1810 (see SC map of 1810).

         In 1830 there was just one Beard family in Maury Co: Thomas Beard, and he was newly married; he and his wife were ages early 20s-late teens, with no children. There was a marriage in Maury Co on 15 October 1827 between John T (Thomas?) Beard and Matilda Dooley. In Marshall Co there were no Beard families. In Giles Co there was just one: J T Beard, age in the 20s with one daughter and son under age 5. Perhaps this was the John T Beard who married in Maury Co in 1827. J T’s close neighbors were Jennings, Wright, Alsup, Griggs, and Parr families. (See Robert Beard #2 above for the same neighbors.) This would place J T Beard in eastern Giles Co, close to Lincoln Co. In Lincoln Co in 1830 there were six Beard families: Alexander Beard (page 227); Absolom Beard (page 227, six doors from Alexander); Francis Beard (page 239); Robin Beard and his wife, ages 50s with teen children to young adult ages (page 249); newly married George Beard and his wife, ages late teens, and a son under age 10 (page 249 and five doors from Robin Beard); and Robert Beard and his wife, both ages 70s (born 1760s), and a son born 1811-1815, three sons born 1801-1810, one daughter born 1811-1815, five daughters born 1801-1810, and one daughter born 1790s (page 257). Of course, some of these adult children could actually be children-in-law. This Robert’s close neighbors were a wide mixture of names, but many of them seem to be the same neighbors of Robert Beard #1 from the 1820 census.

         From Revolutionary War records, we know that William Beard (born 1760) served under his mother's brother, John Irwin. William’s pension record states that Francis and Robert were his brothers. This brother Robert Beard would have been the Robert born about 1760 who lived in Lincoln Co TN in 1830, census page 257, and Francis would have been the Francis Beard of Lincoln Co who was born in 1765. Recent DNA testing has also shown that John Beard (also born about 1765) and William A Beard (1765) were brothers. This John Beard also served under Captain John Irwin during the Revolutionary War. So from 1820 to 1840 Lincoln Co TN census records, and from the pension records of William, we know that there were four brothers born in the 1760s named William, Robert, John, and Francis Beard, all were born in SC, and at least William, Robert, and Francis had moved to Lincoln Co TN in the late 1810s to 1840, and their mother was a Ms Irwin who had a brother named John Irwin. Brother John had died by the time William applied for his pension. Also, William Beard was apparently a widower by 1840 since there was no female of about his age living with him and his son Francis A Beard (born 1792) in 1840. William the father had married Margaret Blackstock, sister of Mary Blackstock.

         In 1840 in Maury Co there were two Beard families: Moses Beard, born in the 1790s, with three daughters and three sons, and a wife age 30s; the second Beard family was Thomas Beard and his wife, ages 30s, and their three daughters and three sons. This Thomas was recently married and living in Maury Co in 1830 with no children. Marshall Co and Giles Co had no Beard families in 1840 (or they were there, but were missed by the census taker).

         Lincoln Co in 1840 had eleven Beard families: Alexander Beard (Civil District 11, page 47), born 1770s; Absalom Beard (Civil District 11, page 47), born 1810s with a wife, three sons and three daughters; Elijah Beard (Civil District 12, page 10), born 1800s, wife age 30s, and four sons and three daughters; Frances A Beard (Civil District 17, page 66), born 1780s (actual birth was 1792) with father age 80 in his home. Son Francis’ wife was age 50s, and they had two sons and two daughters. Francis’ father William Beard was age 80 in 1840 (born 1760) and was a war veteran on a pension living with son Francis A Beard. Francis was born in SC, and had married Margaret Brown in Maury Co on 12 August 1811. In 1850 and 1860 they and their children lived in McNairy Co TN. His wife Margaret was born in SC in 1788.

         Continuing with 1840 in Lincoln Co, there was Jas Beard (next door to his father Francis A Beard) age 20s, wife age 30s, and other adults in James’ home; John A Beard (Civil District 18, page 70), age 40s, wife 40s, four sons, two daughters all age 14 or younger; Thomas Y Beard (next door to John A Beard), age 30s, wife late teen, one daughter under age 5; Jacob Beard (Civil District 22, page 86), age 20s, wife age 20s, one son age 5-9; Robert Beard (Civil District 22, page 87), age 60s (born 1770s), wife age 60s, with adult male and female (child and child-in-law?) age 20s in their home, and three daughters (or granddaughters?) under age 9; Alexr Beard (Civil District 25, page 101), age 20s, with one daughter under age 5, and a wife age 20s. Robert Beard #2 of Lincoln Co from the 1830 census had moved west to Giles Co by 1840 with his wife Elizabeth, but was missed in the 1840 Giles Co census. Robert owned 30 acres in District 3 in Giles Co in 1836. He died in Giles Co in March 1850 in District 2, age 78 (born 1772). District 2 in Giles Co was in the south center of the county, next to the state of AL. The town of Prospect is in District 2. Robert’s wife Elizabeth, in 1850, was living with her sister Marjory Young (born 1790 in SC), and with her son Robert Beard (born 1815 in TN), all in one home in Giles Co’s District 3. District 3 is the district just west of District 2, and has the state of AL on its southern border. Note: a generation earlier, Ephraim Andrews Young [Y8] lived in this area, but there is no known connection with the Young families of Giles Co who came from SC. That Ephraim was born in the late 1790s in VA.

         Robert Beard #1 married in SC in the mid-1790s. He died in Lincoln Co, years after his wife died. She was born in SC. In their home in 1840 were one young adult woman and one adult male, ages in the 20s, and two little girls (granddaughters?). One was under age 5 and the other was born in the early 1830s. Apparently the young adults were Robert’s child and spouse, and their two daughters.

         The only other district in 1836 in Giles Co where a Beard was a land owner was William Beard in District 10 (Bradshaw), where John Young [Y1] lived. And the Young names on the 1836 county tax list were mostly in District 10, with a few in District 9 and 11, and one in District 7.

         The widow Mary Beard who lived in Giles Co District 11 in 1850 was born in 1805 in SC. Her children living with her then were all born in TN-

1.      Willaim H Beard, b 6 Jul 1828 in TN, and died 24 Feb 1888. He married Mary Jane Gordon, sister of Martha Gordon who married William’s brother Frank. Mary Jane was born 20 Dec 1834 in Giles Co, married William H Beard in Giles Co on 4Jan 1858, and died 26 Jan 1918. She was buried in Marks Cemetery in Giles Co with William and their son John, and daughter Dora. William and Mary J had children-

He married Martha Gordon about 1857. Martha was born in Giles Co TN about 1835, daughter of John S Gordon (born 1794 in VA) and Elizabeth Maxwell (or Mitchell?) (born in 1793 in VA). Living with Frank and Martha in 1860 were her widowed mother, Martha’s sister Margaret, age 22, and a young boy John M Craig, age 6. Frank and Martha had children-

         Alma Beard [Y5c5a1h], daughter of John Franklin Beard and Armilda Ferguson, was born 3 April 1906 in MO. In 1910 she live in Taney Co. She married George Herman Snowden in 1923 and in 1930 they lived at Newton in Taney Co a few doors from Alma’s brothers Needham, Leonard, and Oscar. George usually used his middle name. He was born in Stone Co MO on 30 January 1901, son of William Snowden and Daraphira Isabella Hembree, and died at Hollister, Taney Co in January 1969. Alma died at Hollister in March 1987. Herman’s and Alma’s two sons were born in Taney Co MO by 1930-

1.      Everett D Snowden, b 27 Nov 1924, died in April 1976. (Z,137f)

2.      Dewey Snowden, b Aug 1927 (137f)

William Snowden, born 5 Oct 1868 in Stone Co MO (daughter of Charles Snowden and Mary Coats), died at home at Hollister, Taney Co on 4 Feb 1952, and was buried in Blue Eye Cemetery, Stone Co. He married Daraphira "Dora" Isabella Hembree at Center Point, Stone Co MO on 17 Jan 1895 when she was age 16; her mother gave written permission because Dora was age 16. She was born 11 Sep 1878 in MO (daughter of Louis Hembree and Doratheal L G Bowman), and died at Branson, Taney Co on 31 Oct 1955. "Herman of Hollister was the informant for her death certificate; she was buried in Blue Eye Cemetery with William. William and Dora lived at Bellvue, Larimar Co CO in 1900, at White River, Stone Co MO in 1920, at Oliver, Taney Co MO in 1930, and at Hollister, Taney Co in 1955. William and Dora had six Snowden children, all born in MO:

         Almira B Beard [Y5c5e6], daughter of Leander Pinckney Beard and Easter Louisa Hoover, was born 5 October 1880 at Eureka Springs, Carroll Co AR, and died 20 August 1881. (ER)


         Alta Genary Beard [Y5c5a6b], daughter of Willis H Beard and Georgia Wilburn, was born 7 May 1894 at Kirbyville, Taney Co MO. She married Thomas J Smith in Stone Co on 20 November 1913. Thomas was not yet age 21 so his father gave consent. Thomas was born in October 1895 in Polk Co MO, son of Charles J Smith and Martha F Garoutte. Thomas probably died by 1919 since Alta had married Cliff Tate about 1919. Alta was the "Jenny Tate" who was the informant for her father’s death certificate in October 1929. She and Cliff lived at Claremore, Rogers Co OK in 1930. He was born at Walla Walla, WA on 19 December 1890. In June 1917 he was single and lived at Claremore, OK and was unemployed. In 1930 he was still unemployed and Alta was taking in laundry to support the family. Per the 1930 census, Cliff was first married at age 30 (1919) and Alta was first married at age 19 (1913). She died at San Diego, CA on 27 March 1946. Alta had at least four daughters-

1.      Jewel Smith, b 1915

2.      Iva Tate, b 27 Sep 1921

3.      Eva Tate, b 13 Oct 1923

4.      Dorothy Bell Tate, b Jun 1925

The 1930 census shows that Alta and her daughters were "Mixed Blood" Cherokee and White. Charles J Smith was born in Aug 1872 in PA. Martha F Garoutte was born in MO on 24 Aug 1879, and died in late 1890s. She married Charles in Barry Co MO on 1 Jan 1895. (CAd,M, 205u, 405f, 139mvd)


         Bessie Catherine Beard [Y5c4b1d8], daughter of William Newton Beard and Willie Ethel Johnson, was born 25 April 1925 at Tightwad, Ellis Co TX, and died 2 January 2004 at Athens, Henderson Co. She married Oliver Corry Williams on 23 April 1943 and had three children. Bessie also married Marvin James Ebert on 8 April 1964. He was born at Haworth, OK on 27 April 1920, and died at Dallas on 6 April 2005. Bessie’s children were-

a.      Ronald Corry Williams, b 23 Jun 1945

b.      Judy Kay Williams, b 17 Aug 1946

c.      Cathy Yvonne Williams, b 27 Feb 1948 (W, 56b)


         Billy Newton Beard [Y5c4b1m1], daughter of Charles Pinckney Beard and Willa Mae Jackson, was born 15 July 1932 in Ellis Co TX. He married Lera Mae Johnson and they lived in Hale Co. There is a marriage record for a Billy N Beard in Lubbock Co on 27 January 1984 with Frances Lee. The Billy N of that 1984 marriage was born about 1934, as was Frances. Billy and Lera had a son-

a.      Tommy Wayne Beard, b 14 Jun 1960 in Hale Co TX. (130b) (W,54bm)


         Birl Nedham Beard [Y5c5a6c], son of Willis H Beard and Georgia Wilburn, was born 2 January 1896 at Kirbyville, Taney Co MO (death certificate says he was born in 1894; census records and Birl himself on his WW1 draft card said 1896), and died of tuberculosis on 24 November 1924 at Kansas City, Jackson Co in the Veteran’s Hospital. He was buried in Crane Community Cemetery at Elsey, Stone Co. His wife when he died was Irene _____. Birl served in WW1. In 1917 he was single, living at Elsey. He was a machinist. (M,139vc, 39d)


         Bonnie Horace Beard [Y5c4b1d1], son of William Newton Beard and Willie Ethel Johnson, was born 1 October 1913 at Progress, Ellis Co TX, and died 2 May 1996 in Henderson Co. He married Alpha Odessa Payne at Maypearl, Ellis Co on 19 July 1934. She was born 5 August 1916 at Wayne, McClain Co OK, and died 16 August 2006 at Athens, Henderson Co TX. In 1930 Alpha was a niece living with her aunt and uncle George Wiley Gotcher and Lillie Irene Ledbetter in Hill Co. Alpha was a daughter of Isaac Thomas Payne. They had three sons-

a.      Bonnie Gene Beard, b 22 Nov 1935 in Hill Co TX. (44b)

b.      Jerry Don beard, b 11 Jun 1939 in Lubbock Co TX. (89b)

c.      James Keith Beard, b 14 Feb 1943 in Lubbock Co TX. (89b)

Although the 1930 census record showed that Alpha Payne was a niece of George Wiley Gotcher and Lillie Irene Ledbetter of Hill Co, information on this older couple does not support that relationship. George W Gotcher was born 2 Mar 1874 in Comanche Co TX, died 15 Mar 1956 at Joshua, Johnson Co TX, and was buried in Caddo Cemetery; He was a son of John Marion Gotcher of AL and Caroline Cleary of GA.

She was a daughter of Sega General Ledbetter of TN and Flora Mae Barrett of MS.

Alpha father Isaac Thomas Payne was born 13 Jul 1876 in MO, and her mother Lucy C Woodard was born in Sep 1881 in MO. They married on 25 Oct 1896 in McDonald Co MO and lived there for the first few years, then moved to Payne Co OK, Alpha was a twin of her sister Omega Payne. (TXd,W, Z,M,409mu, 410w, 54w, 44f,112d)

In 1830 George was living with his wife and son about midway between the Francis Beard-Mary Young [Y5e] and the Robert Beard-Elizabeth Young [Y5b] families. There were only these three Beard families in Lincoln Co in 1830, and from the names of Martha's four children in 1850, it is probable that she was George's widow. George must have died between 1837 and 1840. Martha married Moses Cook in Lincoln Co on 22 November 1840; the minister was Davis Smith. She had more children with Moses. In Lincoln Co in 1840, widow Martha was not the head of her home. But in the home of Frances A Beard and wife Mary Young, there were four children who were of the same ages as Martha’s children found in the 1850 census, after she married Moses Cook.

         Laura Ann Beard [Y5c5a5], daughter of James McKinley Beard and Rebecca J Hignight, was born in 1868 at Newton, Taney Co MO. (137rs)


         Laura M Beard [Y5c5a1d], daughter of John Franklin Beard and Armilda Ferguson, was born in 1896 in MO, probably at Branson. She may have married a Mr Allen because "Mrs Laura Allen" was the informant for her father’s death certificate in 1929. (137vd)


         Leander Pinckney Beard [Y5c5e], son of Francis M Beard and Susannah Ledbetter, was born 26 September 1847 in Lincoln Co TN. He was Christopher in the 1850 census and was son Pinckney in 1860. His correct name was Christopher Leander Pinckney Beard, but all his life he used the Leander name. He first married a Ms Louiza _____ in May 1870 and they lived in Taney Co MO with Leander’s sister Minerva at Newton, Taney Co MO. Louiza was born in OH in 1851 and must have died soon after she married because Leander then married Easter Louisa Hoover on 2 February 1873 in Ozark Co MO. Right after Leander and Easter married, they went to her uncle Martin Hoover’s farm and then to Leander’s uncle George Beard’s farm to put in crops. Leander died 6 June 1914 in Creek Co OK. Easter was born 10 March 1851 at Salem, Dent Co MO, daughter of John Jefferson Hoover and Margaret Louisa Troutman (both from Iredell Co NC), and died 23 May 1943 near Mounds, Okmulgee Co OK. Actually, she died at her son Clarence’s house, which was in a rural area between Beggs and Mounds. The town of Mounds is in Creek Co and Beggs is in Okmulgee Co. Easter’s death certificate says she died six miles north of Beggs in Okmulgee, Co OK.

         In 1900 they lived at Eureka Springs, Carroll Co AR and Leander was a school teacher. In 1900 they were in Delta Co CO and he was a farmer; Easter claimed in 1900 that she had thirteen children, with seven still alive. In 1910 they lived at Euchee Twp, Creek Co OK and she said she had fourteen children with only six still alive. Leander probably had a son with his first wife, but nothing is known of him. He apparently grew to adulthood, married, and had children-

         Margery Beard [Y5c4c], daughter of George Beard and Martha Y Duke, was born about 1834 in Lincoln Co TN. She may have married in the 1850s since she was not found in any 1860 census of TN. (16n)


         Martin Luther Beard [Y5c4b1e], son of William Francis Beard and Georgia Ann Howard, was born 22 January 1888 at Waxahachie, Ellis Co TX, and lived at Grandview, Johnson Co in 1918.

         Mary Beard [Y5b8], daughter of Robert Beard of Lincoln Co TN, was born about 1810 in Spartanburg Co SC. Her father Robert Beard was born in SC in 1770 (was age 80 in 1850). Although Mary’s father had the same name as the other Robert Beard of Lincoln Co who had married Elizabeth Young, it is not known if the wife of the 1770 Robert was also a Young. By 1850 the Robert born in 1772 had already moved to Giles Co, then died in March 1850 in Giles Co. Over the years these two Robert Beard men lived in Lincoln Co and were both born in SC in the early 1770s. The elder Robert who remained in Lincoln Co, and probably died there, had a daughter named Mary Beard. Mary married a Mr Eddington about 1829 or 1830. The Mary Beard of about the same age (born 1805), also born in SC, and who lived in district 11 in Giles Co in 1850, was a widow with teenage children in her home.

         Mary Beard, born 1810, married a Mr Eddington in 1829 or 1830, then was a widow by 1850. She was then living with her father in Lincoln Co. There were no Lincoln Co Beard-Eddington marriages around 1830, and since Giles Co’s marriage recorded were lost a generation later in a courthouse fire, then Mary probably married in Giles Co. Mary had two children before her husband died. In 1840 in Lincoln Co there was just one Eddington family, Charles D Eddington, and in his home there was no wife and no daughter. So Mary and her husband and children must have lived with her parents in Lincoln Co in 1840. Her children were-

a.      John Eddington, b 1831

b.      Elizabeth Eddington, b 1834 (16in,15q)


         Mary Doris Beard [Y5c4b1a1], daughter of Linzy Howard Beard and Clara Josephine Odom, was born 9 June 1908 at Waxahachie, Ellis Co TX, and died 9 June 1999 at Grandview, Johnson Co. She usually used her middle name. Doris married William Henry Pippin on 15 August 1925 at Grandview, and they lived in Johnson Co. In 1930 they lived next door to his widowed father. William was born 21 December 1904 in Hill Co, son of Lewis Tolman Pippin and Frances Sina Ledbetter, and died 7 April 1993 at Grandview. They were buried together in Grandview Cemetery. They had three children, all born in Johnson Co-

a.      Clarence F Pippin, b 6 May 1926

b.      Jackie Lynn Pippin, b 17 Feb 1939

c.      Mary Sue Pippin, b 19 May 1940

Lewis Tolman Pippin was born 2 Feb 1875 in MO and died 5 January 1936 in Johnson Co TX. His wife Frances Sina Ledbetter was born 7 Jul 1879 in TX, married Lewis about 1897, and died 20 Jan 1930 near Grandview. (W,Z,M, 54v,44v, 112wfbdc)


         Mary Elizabeth Beard [Y5c4b2], daughter of Ira Washington Beard and Rachel W Martin, was born 22 August 1859 in Giles Co TN. She married William W Clemmons in Giles Co on 6 April 1876. Her brother Francis and the groom provided the marriage bond. Mary died in Johnson Co TX on 28 February 1949. Her death certificate gave her parents as Ira Beard and a Ms Martin, and said she was born in TN, so this was the correct Mary. The death certificate also said she was born in 1861, but since she was in the 1860 Giles Co census, her birth could only have been in 1859, or early in 1860. Mary was buried in Grandview Cemetery in Johnson Co. Her husband William was born in February 1857 in Giles Co TN, son of Lewis Clemmons and Mary A _____, and died in Johnson Co in the 1910s. Mary and William lived in Johnson Co. From the birth places of her children, they moved to TX in the mid-1880s. There were twelve children born by 1900 with eight still living; Mary claimed seven, with three still alive in 1910 (it would have been closer to the truth to say three children still lived with her, out of seven still alive)-

         Ora J Blackshere [Y1d6d], daughter of Henry B Young and Margaret Morrison, was born in February 1884 in Lincoln Co TN, and lived with her sister Callie Blackshear in Bedford Co in 1900. Ora married John S Morrison on 30 December 1903 in Lincoln Co. He was born in Lincoln Co in 1865, son of William B Morrison and Nancy E Epps. They lived in Lincoln Co in 1910 but had no children by then. Since John S Morrison was about a generation older than Ora, it is likely that he died when Ora was still a young woman, then she married again. In 1920 they lived in Lincoln Co, and John's sister-in-law Maggie Morrison, age 64, lived with them. Maggie was not married, and because of her age, also was not likely a sister of Ora. In 1930, still in Lincoln Co, Maggie was then John's sister, not sister-in-law, and was then age 71 (born 1859). Ora and John S had a daughter-

1.      Robbie Mae Morrison, b 24 May 1918

There were two John Morrisons in Lincoln Co in 1870, both born about 1865. One was the son of William B Morrison (1845 TN) and wife Nancy E Epps (1846 TN, married in Lincoln Co on 13 Aug 1864), and had sisters Margaret and Penina, ages 3 and 1 in 1870. The other John Morrison was a son of John Hall Morrison (1829 TN) and wife Martha Jane Davidson (1829 TN), and had sisters Mary and Margaret, ages 12 and 11 in 1870. This second sister Margaret would become Ora J Blackshear's mother. This older Morrison family remained in Lincoln Co, but William, Nancy, and their children were in Marshall Co in 1880. This William was born in Montgomery Co TN, four counties north of Lincoln Co, so does not appear to be a close relative of the other Morrison family of Lincoln Co in later years. The John Morrison, born in 1829, was recently married and living in Bedford Co in 1850. (16rmvwf, 17s,237nu, 746n)

         Benjamin Edward Brooks [Y4a8b6], son of Nathaniel Nichols Brooks and Matilda Reed, was born in 3 September 1879 at Six Mile, Logan Co AR. He married Lucinda "Sinda" Z Oden in 1904. In 1900 Lucinda and her mother Sarah and brother Nathan lived with Pascal Dilbeck in Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory. Pascal had married Lucinda’s eldest sister Susan Frances Oden about 1889. In the Pascal Dilbeck home in 1900 was boarder Edward Brooks, age 18, and born in AR. He was probably Edward Harrison Brooks [Y4a8c5], Ben Edward Brooks’ first cousin. In 1920 Ben and Sinda and their two children lived in Hughes Co OK.

         In 1930 Ben and Lucinda lived at Hinton, Caddo Co OK and his father and step-mother lived with him and Sinda.

Pascal Dilbeck was Marion Pascal Dilbeck, born 17 Dec 1865 in Polk Co AR, son of Benson Greenberry Dilbeck and Susan Reed, and died 7 Jul 1943 at Gerty, OK. He married Susan Frances Oden and had about ten children. Pascal’s younger brother William Penn Dilbeck married Rosa Mae Brooks. So William P Dilbeck’s sister-in-law Susan F Oden was his mother-in-law’s sister.

Pascal’s mother Susan Reed was born in 1845 in GA, daughter of William Reed and Elizabeth Hinkle, and moved to Montgomery Co AR when she was age 5. Her family moved over to neighboring Polk Co in the 1850s and remained there for years. Susan’s sister was Matilda Reed who was Benjamin Edward Brooks’ mother.

Wesley Zenas Oden was born 10 Apr 1835 in St Clair Co IL, and died at Gentry, Indian Territory on 21 Apr 1899. He was buried in Gerty Cemetery in what would become Hughes Co in 1907. His wife Sarah A McDonald was born 15 Sep 1845 in TN, married Wesley on 18 Jan 1871 at Triplett, Charlton Co MO, and died 4 Aug 1904. Since she was living in Indian Territory in 1900, and Wesley was buried there, then Sarah is also probably buried with Wesley, but her grave was not found. (W,M,70s, 57s, 591u, 417wm, 351f,211c)

         Dolly Leo Brooks [Y4a8d5], daughter of Thomas Abner Brooks and Mary Catherine Smith, was born in 1891 in TX. There was a marriage announcement in the Greer Co OK Mangum Star newspaper, dated 22 December 1904, between Leo Brooks and John Suitor. The bride was age 16 (born 1888) and lived at (she was actually age about 15 when she married). This couple and children remained at Granite into the 1930s.

         There were two possible men who were Dolly's husband who registered for the WW1 draft in OK in June 1917: John William Sauter, born 16 August 1887 at Lehigh, Indian Territory, was a blacksmith in Coal Co, and was married; and John Gibson Suitor, born in Hunt Co TX on 23 December 1886, lived at Lone Wolf, Kiowa Co, and had a wife and four children by June 1917. Both men signed their names as shown here.

         In April 1910 "John W Suitor" and wife "Dollie L Suitor" lived at Granite, Greer Co OK. John was age 23, born in 1886 in MS, and Dollie was age 19, born 1891 in TX. They had been married for six years. Their two children were the same as the eldest two from the 1920 census in Greer Co. If the census taker had bad hearing, then the middle name "Gibson" would sound like "Wilson" to him. Or perhaps John had two middle names.

         The John Suitor living at Granite, Greer Co OK in 1920 didn't show a middle name on the census record; his wife was Leo M, born in TX in 1890; John was born in TX in 1886. Their four children were all born in OK before 1917. Greer and Kiowa Counties OK are neighboring counties. So this John appears to be the one with the middle name Gibson. "Johnnie G Suitor" died 3 February 1971 in Los Angeles, CA; his birth date on his SS record was 23 December 1886. His CA death record showed that he was born in OK, but did not show the names of his parents.

         In April 1930, living at Granite, Greer Co was "J G Suitor" and wife "Leo". He was born in 1886 in OK of MO born parents; Leo was born in 1891 in TX of AR born parents. Their two youngest sons still at home were born in OK. The 1930 census also showed their ages when they first married: 18 for J G and 15 for Leo; this implied that they married in 1905 for John and 1906 for Leo.

         John and Dolly had six children, all at Granite, Greer Co-

a.      Chester L Suitor, b 1907

b.      Thomas H Suitor, b 18 Apr 1910

c.      Ethel Gwendolyn Suitor, b 13 Jun 1912

d.      Ardney G Suitor, b 29 Dec 1915

e.      James Wesley Suitor, b 11 Feb 1923

f.       Opal J Suitor, b 9 Dec 1930 (W,N,Z, CAd, 241vwf)

a.      Brittany Taylor. (W) (W,311b, 193m)


         Dorothy Lee Brooks [Y4a8b3h], possibly a daughter of James William Brooks and Mary Edith Self, was born 3 April 1924 in OK. Dorothy was not with her parents in the 1930 census, so we cannot be sure that Dorothy was actually a daughter of James and Mary. Dorothy died at Altaville, Calaveras Co CA on 23 March 1990, and her death record said that her parents were a Mr Brooks and a Ms Self. Her possible sister Pauline died in Fresno Co, four counties to the south. Dorothy was born in OK, and married John Linch. She was cremated and her ashes buried in Attaville Protestant Cemetery at Angel's Camp, Calaveras Co. (CAd,Z,668c)


         Dovie Brooks [Y4a8c9], daughter James Winfield Brooks and Sarah Elizabeth Lowder, was born in 1899 in OK. She lived with her brother Edward Harrison Brooks [Y4a8c5] at Dill, Kiowa Co OK in 1910. (149v)


         Dovie Brooks [Y4a8c5f], daughter of Edward Harrison Brooks and Beulah Mae Seckinger, was born in May 1917 at Midland, Pontotoc Co OK. She married James Raymond Malone and had a son. (W,71w, 239f)


         Dwane K Brooks [Y4a8c5c5], son of George Washington Brooks and Lillian Pearl Smith, was born about 1953 in Yuma, AZ. He married Diana Lynn Adams in Kern Co CA on 8 July 1978. She was born in Kern Co on 27 December 1953, daughter of a Mr Adams and a Ms Dremel. In 2006 they lived at Bakersfield, Kern Co. (CAmb, W,N)


         Earnest Nolan Brooks [Y4a8b5g1], son of Noel Nicholson Brooks and Ruth Dorene Reynolds, was born 28 September 1944 in Knox Co TX. He married Sharon Kay Wigley in Bell Co on 18 December 1970. She was born in Haskell Co on 19 September 1948, daughter of Harmon Ray Wigley and Hazel Marie Fullerton. They lived at Abilene in the 1990s and had three children-

a.      Stacie Michelle Brooks, b 15 Oct 1970 in Haskell Co TX. (311b)

b.      Michael Shane Brooks, b 23 Feb 1976 in Taylor Co TX. (58b)

c.      Marc Stephen Brooks, b 25 Nov 1978 in Taylor Co TX. (58b) (W,319b,311b, 85m, 58P)


         Eartis Leon Brooks [Y4a8b5d2], son of J D Brooks and Ola Mae Wade, was born 24 September 1928 in Knox Co TX, and died 18 November 1941 at Austin from a heart attack, probably from a birth defect. He was buried in Rochester Cemetery. Eartis had spent the prior four and one-half years in a state school at Austin. (319b, 311f,80d)


         Edmond Jewel Brooks [Y4a8d4b], son of Isaac Alexander Brooks and Laura Edna McIntosh, was born in 1908 at Quartz, Greer Co OK. He married Thelma Wilder about 1928 and they lived with Thelma's mother in 1930 at Shamrock, Wheeler Co TX. Thelma was born in Hemphill Co TX in August 1909, daughter of William R Wilder (1885 OK) and Ruby P _____ (1892 IA). (241vw, M,558v,355fx)


         Edward Harrison Brooks [Y4a8c5], son of James Winfield Brooks and Sarah Elizabeth Lowder, was born 9 August 1884 at Fort Smith, Sebastian Co AR. His gravestone said he was born in 1885, his WW1 draft card said 1884, and his death certificate said 1882. His wife Beulah was the informant for his death certificate, and she also said she was age 60 when Edward died in 1942. Perhaps she was grief stricken, and gave the wrong ages for both. Other than the 1900 census when Edward said he was age 18, all other census records consistently showed that he was born in either 1884 or 1885. In 1900 Edward lived with Pascal Dilbeck and wife Narcissa in Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory, and he claimed he was then age 18. In 1910 he and his wife Beulah Mae Seckinger lived at Dill, Kiowa Co, and he was age 24 then; Beulah was age 20. She was born at Ardmore, OK on 13 January 1890; she was age 10 in 1900. They married on 30 March 1905 in Pottawatomie Co. In 1918 they lived in Seminole Co at Konawa. Beulah was born at Ardmore, Carter Co OK, daughter of William Rufus Seckinger and Millie Jane Bynam, and died 27 December 1973 at Fresno, CA. Her death record said she was born in 1888, yet all her census and marriage records show that the correct birth year was actually 1890. On Edward’s death certificate, Bulah claimed that his parents were "James W Brooks" from TN and "Sarah Lauder" from AR; this leaves no doubt as to the identity of this Edward Brooks who died at Yuma. They moved to their home at Yuma about 1936.

         In January 1920 Harrison and Beulah were at Midland Twp, Pontotoc Co. He was a farmer then. He said he was age 35, and Beulah was age 30. He could neither read nor write, but Beulah could. Harrison and Beulah were in Wayne Twp, McClain Co OK in April 1930. He was age 46 and she was age 40. They moved to Yuma Co AZ by 1935 and in 1940 they were still there. He was then age 55 and Beulah was age 50. Harrison was age 20 when he first married, and Beulah was age 15. He died on 26 March 1942 at home near Yuma, AZ of a brain tumor, and was buried in Yuma Cemetery at Yuma. They had seven children, all in OK-

a.      Dollie Varden Brooks, b 23 Jan 1906

b.      Walter Lee Brooks, b 18 Jun 1907

c.      George Washington Brooks, b 3 Jan 1910

d.      Eulah Mae Brooks, b 21 Aug 1912

e.      Eugene Willie Brooks, b 16 May 1915

f.       Dovie Brooks, b May 1917

g.      James Edward Brooks, b 4 Jun 1926

Also living with Edward and Beulah in 1910 were his half-siblings: brother Willie Brooks, age 15, and two sisters Annie Brooks and Dovie Brooks, ages 14 and 11. These three were born in OK. (CAd,AZd,W,M,591u,149v, 71w,239f,723xcd)


         Ella Ruth Brooks [Y4a8d1], daughter of Thomas Abner Brooks and Mary Catherine Smith, was born 7 February 1875 in Franklin Co AR, and died at Mangum, Greer Co OK on 20 July 1936. She married Joe M Albertson in 1908. This was his second marriage. He was born 26 January 1872 in IL, and died 5 August 1932. They lived at Duke, Jackson Co in 1910 and at Granite, Greer Co in 1920 and 1930. Joe was a stone mason in 1920 and a house carpenter in 1930. In 1930 their next door neighbor was Ella’s parents. Ella had no children. They were buried in Quartz Cemetery in Greer Co. (W,252v, 241wfc) Was she a daughter? She was not with her parents in 1880.


         Elmer E Brooks [Y4a8b3f], son of James William Brooks and Mary Edith Self, was born in 1912 in Kiowa Co OK. In 1930 he and his parents lived at East Walnut, Canadian Co.

         Emanual M Brooks [Y4a8b7], son of Nathaniel Nichols Brooks and Matilda Reed, was born 15 May 1884 in AR. He was: Emanuel, age 16 in 1900; Emanuel, age 22 in 1910; Emanuel M, age 37 in 1920; E M, age 43 in 1930, and 60 in 1940. His birth date on his Social Security record was 16 February 1880. When he registered for the WW1 draft, he gave his birth date as 15 May 1882, and named Anna Brooks as his nearest relative; they lived at Atwood, Hughes Co OK then, and Emanuel could not write. He died 15 October 1973 at Hinton, Caddo Co OK. His gravestone has his birth date as 1881, but the stone is very new, likely made a generation after he was buried. His wife's dates just show the years only, but they are accurate. Emanuel married Mrs Julia Anna (Moore) Davis on 26 August 1906 at Mangum. In 1910 they lived at Granite, Greer Co OK. Annie was born in TX on 29 August 1879; in the 1910 census, she claimed that her parents were born in IL and TN. This was her second marriage. She also claimed that she had only three children at that time, and all were still alive. There were three children in her home then, one being a son from her first marriage.

         In 1920 they lived at Newbury, Hughes Co, and she was Julie R, born in TX in 1879, with parents born in IL and TN. Her eldest three children in their home were the same as in 1910. In 1930 she was Annie again, living at Cedar, Caddo Co, and was age 49, born in TX. In 1940 they were at Hinton. She died at Hinton on 15 July 1969. They were buried in Hinton Cemetery. They had nine children by 1930, all born in OK-

h.      Mabel Clara Brooks, b 30 Jun 1920 (351x)

Annie’s son from her first marriage was Clem Davis, born in TX on 19 Jun 1900; he lived with Emanuel and Annie in 1910 and in 1920. When he registered for the WW1 draft, he named "Annie Brooks" at Atwood, Hughes Co OK as his nearest relative. In both the 1910 and 1920 censuses, Clem claimed that both his parents were born in TX.

Other researchers claim that Mrs Julia Ann Davis, who married Emanuel M Brooks, was a daughter of John Harden Moore (1853-1935) and Sarah Hutchison Hatchett (1852-1933). They were born in IL and TN, and had eight children: Julia Annie (1879), Sarah Alice (1881), Pearl Almeda (1884), Minnie Ora (1887), Blanch Mae (1889), Maggie Elsie Moore (1890), John Harden (1892), and Lovie Wimirth Moore (1895). This family lived in Bosque Co TX in 1880, then moved to Arapahoe, Custer Co OK about 1892, two counties northeast of Greer Co. And in 1910 and later they were living in NM. John Moore and his wife Sarah were buried in Tatum Cemetery in Lea Co NM. By 1900 their daughter Julia had married and was not in their home. Julia Annie Moore's birth date was 29 Aug 1879 at Stephenville, Erath Co TX, and she died 16 Jul 1969 at Hinton, OK, according to other researchers. Julia's first husband was Robert M Davis, who died prior to 26 Aug 1906 when Julia married Emanuel, but after Sep 1899. (W,Z,M,JF, 6s,286u, 522v,241v,417w, 351fxc, 291wfc)

         James Nelson Brooks [Y4a8c2], son of James Winfield Brooks and Sarah Elizabeth Lowder, was born 7 April 1877 in Franklin Co AR. He grew up in AR and lived at Roosevelt, OK in 1918. He named Mrs Georgia A Brooks at Roosevelt, Kiowa Co OK as his nearest relative in September 1918. She was his wife, Georgia Ann McCarty, born in April 1880 at Monterey, TX, daughter of Harden Dempsie McCarty (1856-1944) and Laura Margaret J Wood (1858-1917). Georgia and her family moved from TX to Indian Territory in 1887. She and James married on 10 December 1895 in Indian Territory, probably in the Chickasaw Nation where her parents lived in 1900. They married in 1897 per 1930 census. James and Georgia lived at Avoca, Pottawatomie Co in 1900; in 1910 they were at Granite, Greer Co (census page 5B, with family name Brook, without the S at the end); in 1920 they were at Otter Creek Kiowa Co.

They had two children by June 1900 with one still alive, and in 1910 they had six, with three still living. Eventually they had at least seven-

a.      child Brooks, b & d about 1896 in Pottawatomie Co Indian Territory. (254u,241v)

b.      James Harden Brooks, b 7 Sep 1897

c.      child Brooks, b & d by 1900 (254u,241v)

d.      Mamie Ann Brooks 12 Dec 1900

e.      child Brooks, b & d 1900s in OK. (241v)

f.       Laura Emma Brooks, b 1907

g.      Marvin Richard Brooks, b 15 Oct 1913

Georgia Ann McCarty’s brother Robert McCarty married Lillie Frances Brooks [Y4a8i1]. She was a daughter of Isaac Nelson Brooks and was James N Brooks’ first cousin.

Harden Dempsie McCarty, born in 1856 in Montague Co TX, died 22 Nov 1944 at Bristow, Creek Co OK, and was buried in Roosevelt Cemetery in Kiowa Co OK. His wife Margaret Laura J Wood was born in 1858 in AR, married Harden in 1878, and died in 1917 at Oklahoma City. She was also buried in Roosevelt Cemetery. They had 9 children, 7 alive in 1910. All those born after 1887 were born in Indian Territory.

In Fairlawn Cemetery in Grady Co are many Brooks graves. There were four Brooks burials in Cemetery Block 5: Dorcus, who died in 1983; James H, died in 1980; Marvin Richard, born 15 Oct 1913, died 27 Dec 1982; and Ruth, died in 1988. We can be sure that Ruth was Ruth Wallace who married James Harden Brooks since her death date matches the date of James’ wife’s date from other sources. And the James H Brooks was James Harden Brooks, husband of Ruth. Marvin Richard Brooks must be James’ and Ruth’s son who was only known from census records as Richard, with the same 1913 birth date. But who Dorcus Brooks was remains a mystery; there was a Dorcus Brooks from OK who was born 20 Jul 1919, but he died 24 Jan 2006 in Cherokee Co. (M,Z, 646s,254u, 241v, 149wc, 208fxc)

         James William Brooks [Y4a8b3], son of Nathaniel Nichols Brooks and Matilda Reed, was born in March 1872 at Six Mile, Franklin Co AR (age 8 in 1880, 28 in 1900, 38 in 1910, 47 in 1920), and died at Hinton, Caddo Co OK in 1936. He married Mary Edith Self in Logan Co AR on 10 May 1894. Just before they married, they both lived at Chismville, Logan Co. J A Holliday helped pay for the marriage bond. In 1900 they lived in the Chickashaw Nation, Indian Territory. In 1900 James’ father and step-mother lived three doors away. By 1900 they had three children, In 1910 they lived at Cooper, Kiowa Co OK, and at Roosevelt, Kiowa Co in 1920. Mary was born in AR in April 1874; she claimed she was age 20 when they married, and James was age 22. Mary was a daughter of Mrs Matilda C Self (1851 AR), who lived with them in 1900. There are graves for James and Mary in Hinton Cemetery in Caddo Co, but ntheir stones have just names and years. Dates for "James William Brooks" were 1879-1932; "Mary Editha Brooks" had the dates 1874-1950. The grave markers were cast in metal then brought to the cemetery to be mounted in concrete. Apparently this was done years after James and Mary died; there is a date scratched in James' concrete base "25 NOV 62" which was probably the date the metal markers were mounted in the concrete. Perhaps by then the family member who supplied the grave markers had forgotten James' correct birth date. In 1940 Mary and her two sons Elmer and Luther all lived together at Cedar in Caddo Co. They had seven children still at home with them in 1920; they had seven or eight children-

In 1920 and 1930 Mary E Self’s mother Matilda lived with Mary’s brother Nathan Levi Self and Levi’s wife May at Lincoln, Seminole Co during most of her widow years. Mrs Matilda Self and her sons Levi and Andrew lived with daughter Mary and James Brooks in 1900. Matilda was born in MS. She was age 48 in 1900, 57 in 1910, 65 in 1920, and 72 in 1930.

In 1930 "daughter" Geneva Brooks, born in Jul 1929, lived with James and Mary and was called a daughter. Because Mary would have been age 55 when Geneva was born, then this girl must have been a daughter of one of Mary's older children. (W,70sm, 116u,149vw, 253wf, 351xc)

         Luther Brooks [Y4a8b3c], son of James William Brooks and Mary Edith Self, was born 27 March 1899 in TX, but soon after his family lived in the Chickashaw Nation, Indian Territory by 1900 (age 2, born in March 1898). In 1910 he lived at Cooper, Kiowa Co (age 11). In September 1918 he lived at Roosevelt, Kiowa Co and gave his birth date as 27 March 1900 and worked for J W Brooks (his father) at Roosevelt. In 1920 Luther lived with his parents at Cooper, Kiowa Co (age 20). In 1930 he lived at East Walnut, Canadian Co OK (age 30) with his parents, and next door to his brother Nathan. Luther was married and divorced in the 1930s and in 1940 (was age 41 then) he lived with his brother Elmer (also divorced) and his mother at Cedar, Caddo Co. He died in 1979 and was buried in Sunset Memorial Gardens in Comanche Co. Because of the agfes given in the census records, Luther's birth year must have been 1899, even though his gravestone says 1898. (M,116u,149vw,352f, 351x, 524c)

         Luther Brooks: There were two Luther Brooks sons in OK who born about 1900 in Indian Territory or in TX, but all lived in OK. One was a son of James William Brooks and wife Mary Edith Self, and who was born in Mar 1899 in TX and lived in Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory in 1900; the second Luther was Luther C Brooks, born Jun 1898 (per 1900 census) in Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, a son of Isaac N Brooks (born GA in 1858) and wife Sarah A Davis (born MS in 1862). This second Luther lived in in Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory in 1900 (age 2), then in Cooke Co TX in 1910 (age 12). He lived in Murray Co OK (south center OK) in Sep 1918 and gave his birth date 27 May 1898 on his draft registration and named I N Brooks of Murray Co as his nearest relative. On 3 Jan 1920 (age 21) he lived with his parents in Murray Co. This Luther, within the next two weeks, married Annie S Hollis and on Jan 17 they lived with her parents in McLain Co (he was age 20), two counties north of Murray Co. Also shown in this Hollis home were children Fannie, Clarence, Luther, Arthur, Ethel, and Virgil, and leonard, ages 15 to 1 & 11/12. The older ones were actually Annie Hollis' siblings and should have had a Hollis family name; the census showed their parents' birth placeses as AL, as were Annie's parents. In 1930 Luther and Annie lived in Garvin Co (he was age 29), and their three children, all born in OK, were: Curtis Olvie, 9; Mildred Tennea, 7, and Katherine Verniota Brooks, 2 2/12. Luther and Annie lived in Garvin Co in 1940 (age 39).

         Both of these two Luther men were buried in OK. Luther, son of James, was buried in Sunset Memorial Gardens in Comanche Co (1898-1979 dates on his gravestone); the other Luther, son of Isaac from GA, was buried in in Rose Hill Cemetery at Chickasha, Grady Co with his wife Annie. Their gravestones give the dates 10 Jun 1900 - 13 Jun 1979 for Leonard and 2 Jan 1903 - 4 Jan 1980 for Annie. Census ages and draft card show that his birth year was likely 1898.

         Luther C Brooks' siblings were: William Brooks, born 1888 TX; Maud Brooks, born 1890 TX; Claudie Brooks, born 1890 TX; Sallie Brooks, born1893 OK; Callie Brooks, born 1894 OK; Dollie Brooks, born 1896 OK; and James Oliver Brooks, born 1913 TX. (M,116u,251v, 238w, 680w, 273fx)
