129 Years Ago Today
November 24, 1879
My great grandparents were married in Russell Co., VA.
Mary Polly “Pop” Sutherland and
William M. “Bill” Brooks.
William was the 10th of 13 children born to
John Jeremiah & Elizabeth “Betty” Hill Brooks.
Mary was the 3rd of 11 born to
Jessee & Mahala Kiser Sutherland.
I don’t have a picture of Mary, but would love to have one.
She died at age 33 6 days after the birth or her 6th child.
166 Years Ago Today
William’s uncle Benjamin (my 2nd g-granduncle) married
Margaret Smart on November 24, 1842.
53 Years Ago Today
It must be a Brooks day.
Happy Birthday to my 3rd cousin, Linda Sue.
