Deb Davis -

  I am researching Lula McClelland BOSTICK and relatives.  Lula was born March 23, 1886 in Grand Chain, Illinois.  She died June 10, 1967.  She married twice.  Her first husband is unknown, but she lived with him in East St. Louis, St. Clair County, Illinois in the 1920's.  I would like to know who that husband was.  Her second husband was Abraham BOSTICK.  Lula lived on Maffitt Street near Newstead Ave. in St. Louis, Missouri prior to her death.  She had no children, but helped raise numerous nieces and nephews.  I would like to correspond with relatives.

 

  Deb Davis - I would like to identify this couple.  I found this picture in the possesion of a great-aunt.  Please email me if you know who they are.  

    Deb Davis - Iím interested in obtaining information on the ancestors and descendents of Howard and Sarah (nee. HENDERSON) BROOKS.  Howard BROOKS was born 1830 in Kentucky.  He married Sarah HENDERSON who was born 1848 in Kentucky.  The family lived in Ballard County, Kentucky in the 1870 census.  Their children were Charles BROOKS, died East St. Louis, Illinois, Mary BROOKS, born 1861 in Kentucky, Ella BROOKS, born 1865 in Kentucky, Franklin BROOKS, born 1868, Kentucky; died December 04, 1935, Pulaski County, Illinois; married (1) Annie Lee FOREE, November 14, 1889, Grand Chain, Illinois; born. February 1872, Illinois; died 1931; married Julia second, Marriah BROOKS, born 1870 in Kentucky, Minor BROOKS, born January 1871, Kentucky; died East St. Louis, Illinois; married Serilda A. YOUNG, February 05, 1899, New Grand Chain, Illinois; born February 1878, Illinois.

Frank is the only ancestor I have been able to trace.  I would like any information that may lead to finding the remainder of this family. I would love to hear from anyone with information. You can find more on my families as well as links to other Brooks researchers at  http://members.tripod.com/debdavis/index.htm.
