The Brookers of Homestead – Part I — 4 Comments

  1. I enjoyed reading the history. My dad was a farmer and bought items at the store. I am living in NC now and writing stories about growing growing up as a farmers daughter and memories for my children. Thanks, so much.

    • Hi Judy,
      I’m pleased to learn that you are writing stories about your family! We met at Madison, as I’m sure you recall but I’ve not done anything with the material you gave me yet. I really do need to write parts II, III and IV of this article! Henry, Jr. got all the press, but Tom and Ed also played an important role in early Homestead.

  2. Hello!
    My name is Johnnie Brooker (my father was Tom Potter Brooker III)…I would love more information on the Brooker Family if you have any other writings. This was so interesting. My mother and father divorced before I was born and I never had a relationship with my father until I had my own child. My father passed away shortly after I had my son. I would love to be able to tell him about the history of my family. Thank you for any information you could direct me to.

    • Hi Johnnie,
      My intention, as shown in the title of this article, was to write two more articles about Tom and Edward, Henry’s brothers. I’ve not done that but I need to fill out the story. I went to school with your father and I’m really sorry that I didn’t have the opportunity to talk to him about family history before he died. He had some tales to tell, I’m sure. I will write two more articles on the Brookers, but I can’t promise them any time soon.
