Surnames: Brooks, Cardwell
I am looking for information on the parents and children of
Doctor Pendleton "Pen" Brooks
B: 28 April 1874 Butler Co, KY
D: 27 Jan 1936 Butler Co, KY

He was married to Becky Jane Cardwell-I know nothing of her except she died 30 Jan 1918 Buler Co, KY. He was also married to Annie Cox Cardwell...I have all of her info so really not concerned with additional info on her.

Pen and Becky had five children that I would like more info on...this is what I know:
01) Johnny Warren B: 1895
02) Luther B: abt 1897
03) Richard B: abt 1903
04) Hobart B: abt 1906
05) Ola B: abt 1908

They also had son
B: 7 April 1900 Butler Co, KY
D: 16 April 1966 Warren Co, KY
Lucas was married to a Bertha Cardwell (1923-1992)
-I do not know her parents

They also had a son Lonnie whom was my husband's Grandfather.
I do have most info on Lonnie. It is the rest of his family that I am needing help with. Thank you in advance for any help!
