The Hooks Family Unites Nationwide Updated March 23, 2001
About Our Family Research
My story is a simple one, after being on this earth for 35 years the only family I know ends with my grandparents, I have lost two grandfathers and I've never even met their siblings. My children and I want to know where we come from. The limited information that I have is, that my grandfather, Willie R. Hooks, Sr. was born in Birmingham, AL and he has seven brothers, I don't know if all of them are alive today. He always talked about one of them who's name was/is Major. He retired from Whiting Oil Refinery in Indiana. He had two sons Willie Hooks, Jr. and Kenneth Hooks, Sr. Kenneth Hooks is my dad. He was married to Carol Jackson they resided in Gary, IN until he passed in 1994.
