About Honoring the Old Ones
Married to Charles Wayne Brooks, son of Mary Ella Thornton and James Edgar 
Brooks II in Montgomery Alabama.  Mary's parents were Bessie Hood and Milton 
Elijah Thornton and his mother was an indian woman named Mary Angeline 
Partridge. Parents of James descend from many in Tennessee who were born long 
before the Trail of Tears; Susie Mae Cooper married James E Brooks Sr. in 
Montgomery Alabama and Susie's ancestors were found in Chambers County, former 
Creek Nation.

Parents of Kath were Anne Alice Carter and Frankie Lavern Cochran.  
Anne's parents were Alice Emma McClain and Cecil Earl Fenn Carter.  Frankie's 
parents were Luella Ellen Coonfield and Frank Delbert Cochran. Anne was 
Cherokee half blood and Frankie was one eighth.

Most of our ancestors began in Pennsylvania and Virginia and I am tracing them 
across the country, collecting census records, wills, military documents and 
pensions, letters, pictures, books, etc. They were often referred to as 
Pennsylvania Dutch and some were buried in Quaker City, Ohio.  Some began in 
Rhode Island in the 1600s, Massachusetts, and New York Indian Country.  Anne 
Alice Carter Cochran is directly descended from pilgrim Edward Doty who came 
over on the Mayflower.

Much love to those assisting this research.
