This is a note to readers who may have read the previous posting here, about Charles Brooks (1800/1 – 1861), son of Thomas Brooks and Sarah Whitlock, and his years in Itawamba County, Mississippi, from 1840 to 1861.
I have now added substantial new material to that posting, and wanted to let you know this. Bob Franks, publications editor and librarian for the Itawamba Historical Society, has kindly sent me land records filling in gaps in my research about Charles, and copies of documents from Charles’s estate file. I have worked that new material into the posting, and am happy that it now offers a more complete picture of Charles Brooks’s life in Itawamba County. I am deeply grateful to Bob Franks for his generosity in finding new documents and sending them to me — and want to put a word in for the Itawamba Historical Society and its outstanding website chock full of valuable information about the history this Mississippi county
