5. Girl who died young? born 1810s and died 1820s, according to 1820 and 1830 census data.

6. Mary J. Maiden (~1815 Saluda,IN - 1860s? MO? IL?) and (1) Lawrence "Abner" Brooks (1800s NC-1848? Bartholomew/Jackson,IN?) on 7/31/1834 in Scott,IN and (2) Madden Beck (~1805 NC-1860s? Concord,Washington,MO?) ~1849 --8+ children (census: 1830, 1840, 1850?, 1860 p.2, 1870?)
(Curiously, the only notation genealogist William Perry Hay made is that Mary married Lawrence Brooks, which he says is based on the Robert Hay biography which also states she moved "out west" after Abner died ~1848 (no mention of a subsequent marriage). The Madden Beck whom Mary married ~1849 is her second cousin, son of Sentleger Beck and Elizabeth Maiden/Madden, and he was married at the time with 10 children and three step-children; his deserted wife Rebecca is even living next door to William Perry Hay's grandparents, Robert and Margaret Hay in 1850. So genealogist William Perry Hay should have known that Mary Maiden Brooks ran off with Madden Beck; perhaps he never did discuss this with his grandfather prior to Robert's death in 1903. Note that Madden and Rebecca had a baby ~1848 and Madden and Mary had a baby ~1850. (A genealogist lists online that Lawrence died ~1848 in Azalea, Bartholomew,IN; it is unconfirmed, and court records should be examined. Another genealogist lists that Madden died 6/1860 in Concord,MO--unconfirmed; perhaps that instead was the date of his last known record, the 1860 census.) Mary and Madden may have been killed during the Civil War, perhaps by bushwackers--see notes below.

On this census he says he was born 4/1870 while his tombstone and his WWI document say 11/1872. His father's obit specifies he lives in Murpheysboro, as does his WWI document (which says his wife is Clara Belle), and so does the 1910-1920-1930 census data.)

-----6a. Martha A. Beck (~1850 KY-) -- unknown (it seems likely but not positive that the 19-year old Martha Beck in Carbondale,Jackson,IL in 1870 may be a match with the Tennessee birthplace incorrect, so she may not have died in the 1860s with her sister Theodocious and her parents; it is not certain that any of the (non-Jackson county) marriages found could be a match -- (1) Martha A. Beck to Samuel Kirkpatrick on 9/9/1876 in Williamson,IL (2) Martha A. Beck to Oliver P. Waters on 3/6/1874 in Shelby,IL or (3) Martha E. Beck to James H.

-----6a. Theodocious M. C. Beck (~1858 MO-) -- died young? (cannot find any Theodocious Beck on the 1870 census, but there was an Amanda Beck, born ~1857, on the 1870 census in Carbondale,Jackson,IL -- not clear if this could be a match; see footnote below)
Note: Not only did Mary's siblings not discuss this branch, but also some of Mary's descendants did not discuss this branch. It is thought that daughter Theodocious/Theodociois and her parents, Mary Jane Maiden and Madden Beck may have been killed during the Civil War. And perhaps William T Brooks and Martha Beck as well (see notes in source info below).
--From a descendant of David Beck: "Miles Brooks was recruited out of Concord, Washington County, Missouri in 1865 to the 9th Regiment, Company K, Illinois Cavalry, which puts him at least still in that county during the Civil War. On reading the history of this county during the war it was so brutal that I believe that Madden and Mary could have been murdered as well as their daughter, Theodocius." [Miles' 1863 enlistment sheet -- CW-1863-IL)]
--And from another David Beck descendent: "It is believed by the family that his father and mother died some time during or soon after the war. His parents may have been killed by Bush Whackers or Jay Hawkers. All that is known for certain is that they disappeared about this time and no records have ever been found concerning them. No deaths, no known burials."
--I (DLH) find it curious that William Perry Hay did not even seem to know when or where Mary Maiden Brooks Beck died; if it was the slaughter of her whole family during the Civil War, it seems like they should have known. The Hay family must have really cut off all relations with Mary and her family as of 1849.

---------------------
Much of the above information on John and Abner's children comes from the Goben genealogy website: http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/c/o/l/Donald-Edward-Coling/FILE/0009page.html and http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/c/o/l/Donald-Edward-Coling/FILE/0010page.html (or click here if links no longer work). Note: the information in this tree was revised to add in information from census date (linked to each above) and from cemetery and funeral home records.

Many trees have James Preston as two children: James P and Preston; it is clear from census data that they are the same child (listed as James P 9 months in 1850 and Preston age 10 in 1860). Many other trees list John Maiden, born 1839 as a child of John and not Abner, but it seems clear that Abner had a son John born circa 1839, as he is listed on the 1850 census as age 11. While it is possible that John and Malinda Goben Maiden could have had a son John born circa 1839, and this child died young, it is thought this is listed in error. It is even possible that John is a son of John and Malinda and he was raised by Abner and Margaret after John and Malinda's untimely deaths, however, as Sarah and Samuel both received $10 in John Gobin's will in 1861, John would surely have been given money too were a brother. So although he is living with his cousin Sarah in 1870, he is deemed to be a cousin and not a brother.

**Harriet Seibel had a newspaper clipping from 1883: "The golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Abner Maiden will be celebrated at the court house in this place, Wednesday, February 28th" -- February 28, 1883 Scotsburg, Scott, IN newspaper clipping. Curiously, this is NOT for this Abner Maiden: (1) the wedding date is wrong -- this celebration was on Feb 28, 1883 when "our" Abner married Margaret two months earlier on 12-19-1832, (2) Margaret is alone without Abner on the 1870 census data and lists herself widowed on the 1880 data, and clearly this is the right Margaret Maiden as Elisha is in the home, and (3) there is another Abner Madden (Maiden) married to Susannah on the 1880 census -- this must be the wedding celebration referred to, and not Margaret's. Curiously, this Abner was also born in NC, but his father was born in MD not NC. Note: I do not have a copy of the original clipping to know the spelling of the surname -- perhaps it was Maden, and Harriet assumed Maiden, and assumed it was a match due to the correct place, age and name.

Margaret Ann Goben Maiden is buried in Concord-Hardy Cemetery, Scott,IN along with Abner Maiden. So are children Milas Maiden, Mary Sawyers Maiden, Elisha Maiden, and Malinda Maiden Paswater. Also in this cemetery are HAY, John C. 6/2/1828-10/12/1915 HAY, Susan (Hardy) 11/16/1838-2/18/1892 daughter of S.T. & L. Hardy
Sarah J. Maiden Colvin is buried in Lexington Cemetery, Scott,IN.

Mary Jane Maiden Brooks Beck: Nothing is known of her first two Brooks children, since the 1850 census for Mary (and Madden Beck) cannot be found (probably in Kentucky, as her daughter Martha Beck was born there ~1850) -- they may have been missed in the enumeration during a move from IN to KY. (Note that each family member was searched for, including all name variations of Milas and Zylphia -- none of the family is found anywhere on the census in any state in 1850.) The 1840 Brooks census shows a boy and a girl born in the 1830s, and these children are not on Mary Jane's 1860 census; it is not clear if these two children died prior to 1860 or simply had moved away from home (perhaps married, especially the daughter); without first names it is next to impossible to research further. While it was unlikely that they would have stayed in IN when Mary and Madden moved to Kentucky (due to their young age in 1850 - under 15), it is possible. They certainly could have stayed in Kentucky or Missouri if married there. Therefore, it is not even certain in which of at least three states to look for them. There are several Brooks families living in Jefferson and Jackson Indiana in the 1840s, and without birth records or an 1850 census, it is next to impossible to determine the names of these children, or what happened to them. And while some of the children have unusual names, some do not, so there is no expected naming pattern for the two Brooks children. It is possible that some court records from Bartholomew/Jackson/Jefferson IN after Lawrence's death might list the children's names. (Bartholomew county is included as another genealogist listed that Lawrence died there.)
--Elizabeth Brooks, born ~1835 in Jefferson,IN and married to David Hearth on 11/30/1852 in Jefferson, is probably either the daughter of John & Sarah or Madison & Nancy (from the 1850 census). (she was listed on Rootsweb with unknown parents; but it should be noted there are several Brooks families having children in Jefferson county at this time: Noah, James, Madison, John, Charles -- so finding a record still does not ensure a match).
--Sarah Ann Brooks born 4/11/1836 who married John H. Hardy in Jackson,IN (where Mary and Lawrence lived on the 1840 census), who named a daughter Zilpha (and other children Mary Ann, Indiana, Ormal, Marcella Sherman, Chester and Hamer) certainly looked intriguing at first glance. However, she died 8/4/1928 in Pomona,Los Angeles,CA where her death certificate lists her father as Brooks and her mother as Edwards, so she is likely to be a relative of Lawrence Brooks but not his daughter (the Rootsweb notation says she is listed as an heir to Martin Brooks deceased 1846 in Bartholomew Court records) -- I am wondering if that was the source of the Bartholomew notation for deathplace of Lawrence.
--Mary Jane Maiden Brooks Beck's daughter Zylphia Brooks is not the Zilpha married to Peter Retherford in KS -- that was Zilpha Ann Kean, whose mother was born in KY-1900 census for wrong Zilpha. George Porter's death record confirms that his wife was Zylphia Brooks -- and thank you to Audie Calvert for the great 8/19/1948 newspaper article (pdf version).
----From the Delphos Carrier, 1884-1888 (http://www.skyways.org/towns/Bennington/Delphos%20Rep%201879-1899.htm):

She was 60 years old and had been a widow for many years. Children who survive her are Richard Brooks of Carbondale, John Brooks of Fort Meyers, Fla., Stanley Brooks of Herrin and Mrs. McMinn. Two brothers, John McGowan and Warren McGowan, and a sister, Mrs.Theodore Halter all of Carbondale, and two grandchildren; Mrs. Ruth, Anderson of Nasson and Mrs. Mary Wacklitz [note: really Wacknitz], also survive. John Brooks of Florida will be here, for the funeral. [note: for some reason the third granddaughter Joanne Brooks, Stanley's 9-year-old daughter was omitted from this obituary; she is included in her aunt Gertie's 1966 obit following.]
----The Southern Illinoisan, March 21, 1967 p. 17 (obit) MRS. GERTIE McMINN Mrs. Gertie McMinn, 91 of 207 W. Oak St., Carbondale, died Dec. 9 at her home. She had been ill for about five years. She was a former cashier at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago. Born April 29, 1875, in Carbondale, she was the daughter of Milas and Mary McGowan Brooks. She married the late John McMinn. She leaves brothers, Dick and John Brooks, both of Ft. Myers Fla.,. and Stanley Brooks of Carbondale, and nieces, Mrs. Mary Root and Mrs. Ed Anderson both of Ft. Meyers, and Joanne Brooks of Chicago; Funeral services were Dec. 12 at Huffman Funeral Home. The Rev. Willard G. Foote, pastor of the First Baptist Church, officiated. Burial was in Oakland Cemetery.
----The Free Press, Carbondale, Nov 8, 1928 p. 3 Birth A daughter was born November 1 to Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Wacknitz of Chicago. She has been named Marian Lee. Mrs. Wacknitz was formerly Miss Mary Brooks of this city. (She was the daughter of Richard "Dick" Brooks and Margaret Smith; she lived with aunt Gertie McMinn in 1920 after her mother died.)
Note: There are no confirmed records for five Brooks/Beck family members after 1860. On the 1860 census there are six children with Madden and Mary: Milas Brooks, William T. Brooks, Zelpha J. Brooks, Martha A. Beck, David C. Beck, and Theodocious M. C. Beck. Of these 8 people, three are definitely not found again: Madden, Mary, and Mary's son William T. Brooks. In 1863 Milas is listed as recruited/volunteered for the Civil War in Carbondale,Jackson,IL but he is not found on the 1870 census. Only two are definitively found on the 1870 census: Zylphia Brooks and David Beck, both in Jackson,IL. Zylphia Brooks is living with the Marshall Porter family in Elk Prarie,Jackson,IL (whose son George she marries in July 1870), and David Beck is living with the Solomon Porter family (George's older brother) in Elk Prarie,Jackson,IL (he moves to Kansas by 1879 where he marries). There is a Martha Beck on the 1870 census in Carbondale, of the right age, but supposedly born in TN; there is an Amanda Beck on the 1870 census in Carbondale of a consistent age to Theodocious -- subsequent records have not confirmed or refuted these as a possible match. But it should be noted that there were only five Beck entries in all of Jackson County in 1870 -- a German John Beck and his wife (unrelated), David Beck in Elk, and Martha and Amanda in Carbondale -- the town out of which Milas Brooks volunteered -- and no Becks in Jackson county in 1860. I think it likely that Martha and Amanda are David's siblings, with Amanda being perhaps a middle name for Theodocious, and one she preferred. In 1880, Milas Brooks is in Carbondale and Zylphia Brooks Porter in Vergennes in Jackson,IL while David Beck lives in Ottowa,KS. With the children scattered on the 1870 census, it is virtually certain that both Mary and Madden were deceased by 1870; it is unknown if they died in Concord,Washington,MO (where they lived on the 1860 census) or in Jackson,IL (where Milas is known to have lived in 1863), and it is unknown if it was related to the Civil War. Further research is needed; no family stories have been passed down, no newspaper accounts have yet been found.
--BROOKS, Miles J Private Carbondale Jun 9, 1864 Mustered out Sep 23, 1864 -- Company "F" 145th Illinois Infantry -- others in this unit from Carbondale: Adams, Battie, Berry, Blair, Bockleman, Brewster, Brush, Cady, Cheatman, Dean, Felts, Hatfield, Jenkins, Leach, Lewis, McBride, Mosley, Osburn, Parks, Peterson, Pierce, Prickett, Riston, Sanders, Summers, Thompson, Wood, Worthen (source: http://civilwar.ilgenweb.net/r155/145-f-in.html). Miles' 1863 Carbondale enlistment records: CW. I (DLH) assume this is a Union unit, as were most of those in Illinois, and that the three kids moved from Washington,MO to Jackson,IL because of their Union sympathies. Thus, if the family were in fact killed during the war, I would suspect it was in Washington,MO in 1861-1863, and that precipitated the move by the children to Illinois.
--Why did Milas Brooks chose Carbondale? I suspect that there was some close family or friend there for him to choose Jackson,IL, especially to sign up to fight in the Civil War (usually you picked a unit with friends or relatives). On a whim, I examined the Brooks families in Carbondale on the 1860 census -- Benjamin Brooks (b.1826 Indiana) wife Louisa (b.1830 KY), children Maria, Arthur and George born IN, SC and FL! Benjamin's 1850 and 1860 census. The IN-plus-KY ties are compelling, but I wonder how they would have kept in contact when both families were moving so much; it is possible that Benjamin was a younger brother to Abner, born 1800-1810 (according to 1840 census), or possibly a son from a first marriage and half-brother to Milas (not a full brother as he could not be a son of Mary Maiden Brooks; Mary married Abner in 1834). And there was a M. H. Brooks born 1828 in IN in nearby township 9. My guess is that Milas would have sought out a Brooks relative. And if he had lost 5/8 family members in 1860-1863 to Civil War terrorists, he would have been even more anxious to seek out remaining family members and to sign up to fight on the Union side.
--Why did David C. Beck move to Kansas in 1880 and then Oklahoma ~1894? It is noteworthy that there is a Henry Beck family living in OK in 1920; he was born there circa 1858. But, this could be an independent decision, or with his wife's relatives as well; this is a very different situation than that of Milas since David was older, married, and not signing up in the military or escaping a dangerous place.
