bullet  General Notes:

[Brooks.ged]

We have an original story written by Tam Brooks concerning escape from
Camp Morton, Indiana Yankee prison during Civil War. I also have new
clippings about his store in Hillsboro, Tx. and I have several pictures
of him, and I have been to his grave and have pictures of it and a
rubbing of it. He was named for the famous warrior, Tamerlane, also seen
spelled Tamerlain and Timur the Lame. He was called Tam, and held no
special rank in the Civil War. In a history book on Hill County, Texas,
he is misspelled as Tom Brooks. In Sue Brooks' bible records his first
name is spelled Tamerline, and no middle name is mentioned.

Mormon records check April 1995 showed
Tamberlane Xenophen Brooks, l3th child, born 1844 in Cobb, Ga. It shows
no spouse, and since he was my great grandfather, I think my family
records are more likely to be correct.
