Tennessee Lemons Brooks was born 15 March 1874, the names of her parents have
never been located. Whenever she
wrote her own name, she used Tennie Brooks, but the family always wrote her name
Tennie Lemons. There was a Carl
Brooks who signed her visitation book at her funeral, but no relationship has
been determined. It is believed she was not from Hamilton County, but somewhere
else in Tennessee. No one in the
family recalls her ever seeing members of her family visit.
