Brooks and Yeldells of Edgefield SC

Classification: Query
Surnames: Yeldell, Brooks, Adams
My name is Donya Williams and I am the grand daughter of Jefferson Davis Yeldell. My grandfather died in July of 1964. He was brought back there from washington dc to be buried next to my grandmother Anne Mae Senior Yeldell. My grandfather didn't share to much information about his side of the family so that has led me to this site. I have found a wealth of information on but have come to a halt at my grandfather's father mother.

Her name was Martha Brooks. On the census it shows her with five children in Edgfield. Her son peter is my great grandfather. Martha was down as a widow in the 1880 census but the two census that I have seen her in there was never a man. So one I don't know why the children last names were yeldell. I assumed this is where the slave master may have come into play.

In short I am looking for anyone who has information about Peter Yeldell, Jefferson Yeldell or Martha Brooks. Peter married Katie Adams and they had 10 children but only 6 seemed to be recorded. One of the six is Jefferson. Please contact me with whateva info you can. Thanks
