Children of Thomas Whitlock (abt. 1745 – 1830) and Wife Hannah Phillips: Daughter Who Married John Hammons (2)

Warren County, Tennessee, Deed Bk. L, pp. 204-5

Warren County, Tennessee, Years, 1807-1819

As the previous posting indicates, John Hammons Jr. disappears from the Wayne County tax list after 1807, when he moved with his father and brothers Leroy and Woodson to Warren County, Tennessee. On 7 August 1807, John entered 100 acres in White County by virtue of warrant #1686. The land entry states that the land was assigned to John by D. Ross by his attorney J. (or T.?) Hopkins, assignee of Stokely Donelson, assignee of Patrick Hamilton. The entry was location #143 in the 3rd district, and adjoined John’s occupant claim, location #141 and Martin Harpool.[1]

Or, Subtitled: Migration of a Brooks Family from Lawrence County, Alabama, to Itawamba County, Mississippi, and West to Texas

The following posting provides an outline sketch of basic information about the children of Charles Brooks (1800/1 – 1861) and wife Deniah Cornelius of Lawrence County, Alabama, and Itawamba County, Mississippi. As the postings I’ve just linked note, Charles Brooks, who administered the estate of his father Thomas Brooks in Morgan County, Alabama, purchased his father’s bible at Thomas Brooks’s estate sale in Morgan County. Charles and Deniah then recorded the names and dates of birth of their children in the register of the bible of Thomas Brooks.
