Mary (Cornett) Holbrooks
"Mary Cornett, known to some of us as Grandma Holbrooks, was born 11-23-1852 probably in Rowan Co. Ky.
She was the daughter of Wesley Cornett and Ceatti Morris.
Sometime around 1873 she married Jesse Eldridge and had the following children, according to the 1880 Rowan co. census, Araminda, Alice and Charles.
If she had other children after 1880 with Jesse I haven't been able to find out. I have never been able to find out what happened to Jesse
or her children. In 1888 she had a set of twins, Harvey and Rena, born in Rowan Co. Ky. Their father was Richard Manning. They were not married.
On 12-14-1899 she married Robert Holbrook in Greenup Co. Ky. Mary died 1-7-1944 in Cincinnati, Oh, and is buried in the Tackett Family Cemetery
on Henderson Branch in Carter Co. Ky."
