Joseph Brooks of Joshua, Texas

Classification: Query
Surnames: Brooks, Thornton, Bowman
Would like to correspond with anyone who knows what happened to the children of Joseph "Joe" H. Brooks (born 1853-55, died 1937) and his wife America Annette Thornton (variously called "Thornton" and "Nettie" depending upon which census she is in). There were five children: Hugh T. Brooks, Jonnie Brooks, Una Brooks, Homer Brooks, and Lurline Brooks. I know that Hugh and Homer were buried in the Caddo Cemetery along with their wives Emma (Hugh's) and Nova (Homer's). I believe that Una was married to John Lafayette Bowman and moved to Archer County, Texas. But what about Jonnie and Lurline?

Joe Brooks was my great-grandfather's half brother. They were the sons of John Brooks b. 1790 who was buried at the Laramore Cemetery near Cleburne, Johnson County, Texas.
