Searching for parents of John William Brooks, 1880-1950

Classification: Query
Surnames: Brooks, Heatherly,
I am trying to find the parents of John William Brooks, b. 5 Oct 1880 in Baccus, Claiborne, TN., and d. 19 Dec 1950 in Middlesboro, Kentucky. His wife was Dora Dean Baker, b. 13 Mar 1883 in Corinth, Kentucky, and died 15 Nov. 1952 in Fayetteville, TN., although she lived in Middlesboro until shortly before her death.

John's death certificate says his parents were Jas or Jos Brooks and Frances Milburn. The family Bible says it was James Armistead Brooks and Frances Heatherly. But searching on any combination of these folks in census records is producing nothing.

John William Brooks was my grandfather. My dad was Kenneth Albert Brooks. His siblings who survived childhood were Elgan H. Brooks, Violet Brooks Cottrell, Margarite Pauline Brooks and Roy Brooks.

Can anyone help me?
