In Response To: Re: Help, I found my Westbrook 1920 Monroe, AR? ()
Yes, Denise this is my family. I'm not sure if you saw my post last year looking for an Edee Westbrook who later turned out to be Edith Westbrook. From the help I received last year from Afrigeneas, I only played around with the first name and never the surname. I guess when my Westbrooks arrived to AR, whom every was taking the census decided to spell the surname as they heard it: Westbook, Weltbrook, Westwood and Wistbrooks.
Edith was senil [sic] and maybe she snapped on the census taken and told the census taker to spell her name Westbrook. This is how I found my Westbrooks yesterday. I put in Edith Westbrook and low and behold my other Westbrook jumped out and said hello Zena we have been waiting on you.
Peace and have a wonderful day.
