bullet  General Notes:


According to Nana's notes, William Brooks came from England early in the
18th century (that would make it somewhere between 170l and 1750.) His
family was lost by shipwreck, and he married again in North Carolina and
reared a large family, one of whom was Jacob Brooks, whom I have shown as
Jacob Possibly Joab? Brooks. Joab was my idea.
I have guessed
at birthdates based on information that he came to America early in th
18th Century (1700s) and based on a twenty to twenty-five year gap
between generations for his son Jacob who had John who had Stephen who
had Jacob Reed Brooks (the first known birthdate in this line of the
family). There is a Micajah Brooks who lived to be over 100 years old
and was a witness that he knew another ancestor of mine, Benjamin Davis,
and that he knew Benjamin Davis enlisted from Chatham County (either
North or South Carolina...I don't have the record in front of me right
now). I believe since he knew the Davis family and they lived around
each other and he lived so long, and he was in the Rev. War. that he is
probably a relative, but I don't know for sure. This Micajah is in the
DAR Patriot Index, and possibly I also saw him in Gone to Georgia, and he
was a witness at pension hearing for Benjamin Davis's widow, Elizabeth
Daniel Davis. I wonder if Micajah Brooks was a brother of some of my
direct line.
