Re: Harryman-Brooks connection??
Just a little more info. for my newly acquired (2nd) cousin.The silver serving set w/ E.B.B. was probably our great-grandmothers.......Elizabeth Barnes Brooks (Harryman).My mother, Martha Gregory, (daughter of Gaylord & Purnell Harryman) said to tell your father "hello".It's been a long time since she's seen him.I believe she said he had just gotten married when she saw him last.That has been a long time.........I'm (40) and I'm sure it was a long time before I was born that she saw him.She also said that Tiny's mother was killed in a motorcycle accident and she thought she was pregnant at the time.Is this correct?Do you know who Dick Harryman is?If not, he is an artist that did the "Emmet Kelly" Clown pictures, painted a lot of presidents portraits and he even painted my oldest brother's portrait.Anyway, he is having a Harryman family reunion sometime this year and asked my mother if she'd go when he had it.No date set at this time as far as we know.He lives outside of Baltimore.I'd love to go because I've never met any of them before except somebody named Ethel (I think).Do you live in Baltimore or the surrounding area?We live in Wilmington, NC.I've been here all my life.I hope this has helped you a littl more and please pass on anything you find out.Thanks!
