Judy are you any kin to the Calhoun Co. Alabama Brickhouses? If so, my great grandmother, Rachel Evelyn Lloyd Allen married John Howcott Brickhouse, after her first husband, my great grandfather, Columbus H. Allen died (1896).
After the death of J. H. Brickhouse, some of his descendants took Rachel to court to try to get her home and land away from her to no avail.
J. H. Brickhouse was a teacher in Alabama and TN. he also was a circuit court clerk in Erin TN. where they lived after marrying, before moving back to Alabama.
