Charlie C. BROOKS (1871-1947) married Lizzie DEBORD and had two
children before her early death, Mae and Lizzie. Mae married T.
Jessie BLOOMER. Daughter Lizzie may have never married. C. C. BROOKS

Charlie born in 1871 living in the same neighborhood, close to

I'm looking for the parents of my second great grandfather, Guilford
S. Frost, born 1832 in Hancock (Hawkins) Co. He is shown in the 1860
Hancock Co. census at 28 yrs. living near John Frost, 56 yrs. Frosts
known to be in the county at or around the time of his birth include
Simeon Frost. I've also found listings for other Frosts in the
county in that period, including Robert Frost, Andy Frost and Thomas
Frost. By Guilford S. Frost's first name, it's likely that he's from
the line of either Capt. James Frost or Capt. John Frost, who served
in the Revolutionary War. Capt. James Frost lived in
Guilford/Johnson Co., N.C. and fought with his brothers Simeon and Jonas at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse.

I am trying to find out about the family of James and Jacob ROUSE of
Rogersville, Hawkins Co, TN ca 1860. Per a Civil War pension
application of James and his wife Juliet G. (FREEMAN) ROUSE, they had
a relationship with my great(2) and great-grandfathers, William
Farley & James Elbert TEMPLETON. Per the pension deposition of
James' brother, Jacob, James went into Scott Co, VA to marry Juliet
FREEMAN sometime prior to the Civil War. Now, coincidently, William
Farley TEMPLETON's mother was Mary/Polly FREEMAN. Subsequent to the
war, James and Juliet lived on William TEMPLETON's farm in Scott Co,
VA prior to moving to Kentucky. Once in Kentucky, my
great-grandfather, James Elbert TEMPLETON was James ROUSE's physician
from 1880-1883 in Menifee Co, KY (and provided a physician's
statement to the pension). James & Juliet had 5 kids: Fanny, Ann,
William, Jacob and Elbert. He died in KY in June 1904. His brother,
Jacob was born Jan 15, 1845 and was alive in July 1905. I would
