I was able to find the graves, but couldn't find out who owned the land to get permission to go right up to the graves. I have quite a bit of info on the family but not with me at the moment. I'll go through what I have and get back to you.

IWilliam and Nancy Brooks are my 4th Greatparents. I have a photo of their gravesite.Coming out of Tazewell on Rte 16, and following Rte 16 through Frog Level, you will come to a store and just past that is rte 604, take that, The grave is not far from there, up on a hill ,visable from the road to your right. Also you might go to site to read about him and obtain further genealogical data on him and his family.

I am William Brooks 5th great Grand Daughter via his son James. I am also related thru his son Thomas but that is at least one extra generation. My mother's grandparents were both distant cousins on the Brooks line.

I have a fair amount of information on the Brooks line both from publications, personal research and the internet.

Feel free to email me and I will share what I can. I was raised in Bluefield in Tazewell county.

I believe we are related. I'm doing research on the Brooks family. I hail from William M. Brooks born around 1700, location undetermined. The Brooks line originates in my g-g grandmother, Frances "Fanny" Brooks (b. @ 1848 in Logan County (W)Va.

I have hit a brick wall concerning that of Willam M. Brooks and was wondering if you had any information regarding him.

I'm afraid I don't have any help for you on William M, but I did want to give you a shout. We are researching a lot of the same folks. I am descended from Fanny's Brother Franklin and also her sister Malinda. I'm also related to the Farmer's and Daniels. I would enjoy sharing photo's or info if you are interested.

My grandmother is Dolly Farmer Young.

My great grandmother is Martha Cozart (b: Nov 22, 1877 - Wyoming County, WVa) who married William R. Farmer (aka Bill b: Nov 30, 1869). They were married on May 28, 1896 in Laurel Fork, Wyoming County, WVa.

William's father was Peter Green Farmer (B: Aug 11, 1881 - Logan County, WVa) who then married Francis "Fanny" Brooks on March 14, 1867 in Wyoming County, WVa.

But before Peter Green married Fanny, he had been married to Nancy Jane Daniel (b: 1832 in Patrick County, Va). Together they had Emezetta Farmer, Kate Farmer, and Sarah Farmer.

So - I'm related to the Daniels mostly in the way of marriage and only as they come through the union of Peter Green Farmer.

How are you related to the Daniels and the Farmers?

William Brooks' daughter Malinda married Russell Cook. Their daughter Louisa married James B. Allen. James' and Louisa's daughter, Carrie Allen married Christopher Brooks.

Christopher Brooks was the son of Franklin Pierce and Emezzetta Farmer, Peter Green Farmer's daughter! Getting complicated enough for you, yet?

Chris Brooks and Carrie Allen had six children. Their son John married Iris Daniel, daughter of Russell Giles Daniel and Rosa Trump. John and Iris had a son, George, who was my father.
