Brookes More was born in Dayton, OH on March 29th, 1859. He was the son of Enoch Anson More and Katharine Hay. His siblings were Enoch Anson, Paul Elmer, Louis Trenchard, Alice M., Katharine and May. He married Bedelia Margaret MADDEN in 1898 in St. Louis, MO. Children: Katharine Hay More, 1898, who married Wilmon BREWER, and Trenchard More, 1899. Brookes More died June 9, 1942.
Brookes More published many books of poetry as well as translations of Ovid etc. What I am trying to find out is, where did his first name come from? Was anyone in the family related to any BROOKES's by blood or marriage?
Any information about this connection would be appreciated. Please respond by post or by email to rmckenzi (at) dti (dot) net. Thank you!
