Robert 's birth mother was Amanda Brooks. Because Amanda was not married, her father Jim (James) Brooks raised Robert as his own son. (By: Bertha Lord Wright, Belle Lord).
Robert was born in 1860. During the Civil War his family was living in the area of Brooks Springs. When Sherman came through the area with his destruction, to protect Robert from the troops, he was dressed in a dress as a little girl. A Mason flag was hung up in the yard. When Sherman showed up, he saw the flag and because of it being a Masonic flag he did not burn the house. Do not know if this was a flag or an apron used as one.

Robert was a curious person, strick, tight wad. He was tall, about 6 ft. weighed little over 200 lbs. Senaan his wife, was a very nice person. Robert always wanted her to do little things for him. At breakfast he would say something like this " give me just a mouth full more of coffee ". One morning when he said this, Senaan got a mouth full of coffee in her mouth then transferred it to his cup, he had a fit. Another time Robert stated he wanted just a mouth full more of biscuit, well Senaan bit a biscuit then transferred it to his plate. This was her way of getting back at him for his little demands.
