    • INFORMATION FROM Patty Skaggs, www.tribalpages.com/tribes/pfskaggs. She was doing my research for the DAR for her Patriot John Thomas Brooks." Name, birth & death dates, plus information listed below. Inasmuch as this Bible is a primary source and Patty's DAR application was accepted, I am considering this accurate information.
      John has children from both marriages.

      Christine (Brooks) Bosworth from NC sent Patty Skaggs the following info:
      The story of the Brooks family begins in the 1600`s with the coming to America from England of six Brooks brothers. According to a family historian of 1869, Joseph Headen, "Six Brooks brothers left England, stopped in the West Indies, then came to Virginia and stopped there a while. There the brothers separated, three went North and the other three came South."

      John Brooks served in the Revolutionary War.
      "Point of Rocks 5 Apr 1784: "I do hereby certify that John Brooks, Pvt., enlisted in the Virginia Contential Line the 6th of August 1778 for & during the war; he faithfully served `til 25th of Nov 1782 when he furnished an able bodied man in his place, at which time he was discharged. Given under my hand the date and place above Ja. Brown VA Reg."
