I am just starting to research each branch of my family. My father's paternal side has been researched very well by a great aunt, and as a result, a book was written, Van Hook and Allied Families. It is a great resource. The Brooks side of my family came from Ireland. John Brooks married Ann McFarland and came to the U.S. sometime between 1846-1886. Also on the paternal side is my father's mother's family--the Hubbards. This is the side with the book. This family came from Mason County, IL.On my mother's side I'm searching for information on the Hord's and the Rayburns both from around the Lexington and Richmond, KY areas.
