    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.
