The Harrison Brooks I am seeking information on was born in Brooklyn, Illinois in 1830. That is all of the information I have other than he was the father of Everett Brooks(?) who is the father of Margaret Mae Brooks(b.10/1908).

Hi Sheila,
I talked to awhile ago. I'm Howard's daughter and I have a few updates, Harrison was born in Feb. 1840, in Brooklyn, Schuyler, IL and married Margaret Allen in 1863 in Huntsville, Schuyler, IL. He had three sons, William who died at age 11, Charles Everett who married Nellie Durbin in 1905 Plankinton, Aurora, SD(Howard Everett, Margarett Mae and 5 others are their children). His last child stayed with them until SD and then around 1900 went to WI(?) I have birth certificates of the seven children and marriage licence for Nellie and Charles if you would like copies. I thought I sent this if not let me know what you need. Still looking for Levi Durbin(Nellie's father) and Harrison Brooks' father and siblings if you have more info willing to share. Harrison lived in IL, NE, SD, and MO after 1880. He died in Louisburg, Dallas, MO in 1919 Jan 8.

I'd be interested in any information you have on James Thomas Brooks. That's my husband's ggfather, if it's the same guy.

Thanks in advance~!

I was wondering if you ever found Harrison's father or siblings? This is my uncles's family and I can't get past Harrison (he's a descendant of Charles Everett). I came across something that said Harrison's father was Caleb (1815 in Ohio) but I don't know if it's accurate.
