Researching the family of John BROOKS who came to Gilmer, Upshur Co. around 1853 with a large group of sons and daughters, slaves, cattle, and others from Paulding County (now Polk County) GA. John's first wife was Elizabeth TOLER or TOLLER. It is believed she died before the family moved to Texas. His second wife was Eliza McFARLAND. Although all these children are not proven to belong to this family, it is tentatively believed they were as follows: Delaney BROOKS RASBURY (1815-1889); John L. BROOKS (1822-1903) (my great-grandfather); Micajah or "Jim" BROOKS (1827-1907); Nancy BROOKS HESLIPP (1829-?); Mary Elizabeth BROOKS CRISP (1832-1924); Eliza A. BROOKS BECK (1835-1867); Rebecca BROOKS MARSHALL BECK (1838-1885); James Thomas BROOKS (1848-1939); Joseph BROOKS (1850-?); and William E. BROOKS (D. 1937). There were probably other children, unknown. The first five were probably born to Elizabeth TOLER BROOKS, the rest to Eliza McFARLAND BROOKS. Does anyone know anything more definitive about the composition of this family? John and Eliza BROOKS died at Cleburne, Johnson County, TX where they are buried. It is believed he was a son of Micajah BROOKS, Revolutionary War Veteran who is buried near Rockmart, GA. I have much more information to share.

I'm trying to locate information about my ggrandfather, Job REYNOLDS, who was in Upshur County in 1900 census. He was living with his brother, W. P. REYNOLDS. I am particularly interested in finding out the physical location of where he was living at the time. The census lists it as Sup. Dist. No. 7, ED # 120. Would this perhaps be close to the Gregg County line and maybe part of Gladewater? I had lots of family that lived in Gladewater right on Upshur Co line at that time. Surnames: SMITH, GREGSTON, BERRY, BRASHER. Job REYNOLDS m. Sallie GREGSTON in Upshur Co in 1893. They were married by J. B. Hill, J. P. Would anyone know where Mr. Hill might have lived? Sallie's parents were Payne GREGSTON and Mary Jane BRASHER.

The IGI record at the LDS library shows a record of the marriage of my g- g-grandparents, James Polk HAZEL and Virginia HOLT, as having taken place in March 1871 at Lafayette, Upshur Co, TX. I would like to know what the source of this information is. I can't find any record myself. I believe they were Baptist, and they may have been married at the Lafayette Baptist Church, but I don't know. I can find no record of Virginia in any HOLT family in the 1870 census thereabouts. James was from Lavaca CO, but had family in Smith Co. If anyone can help me find this marriage record or can help me find out anything more about Virginia (called Jane?) HOLT, I would be very grateful. James was born in 1848, son of Seth F. HAZEL and Caroline M. BUCKHOLTS.
