A note on Brooks Matney. I have heard two tales on him, about where he lived. I heard first that he had moved into Kentucky, around Lawrence Co.. I also heard that he never left Virginia. Could Brooks had a son or grandson, named Brooks, who moved into Kentucky?
If I recall, one of his sons moved into Lawrence Co., Ohio, which is here where I live, and I do know there are some living here today. It may be possible that that is who some refer to, but say it was Brooks who moved, and got the states mixed up. However, Brooks, Walter's brother, wasn't who moved here.
The reason I mention this, is that I read where he was buried in Virginia. I never looked him up in the census, as he wasn't from my line. Anyhow, any from his line might want to look into this.
