     William James Brooks was born on 27 March 1860 at Maine per censuses and California death index. 1900 census listing for William and Lizzie Brooks appears to have been a "fiction fest" -- he deducted 9 years from his true age, and Lizzie added 10 to hers, thereby closing most of the 21-year gap in their ages. In 1920, 1930, and 1940, William reported his true age (59, 70, and 80, respectively).1

He lived in 1892 at Mendocino Co., CA, age 27, per California voter registration record (ancestry.com.) He lived on 14 June 1900 at Ten Mile River, Mendocino Co., CA, brakeman (railroad), age 31, wife Lizzie E., children Claude J., 4, and Mamie S., 2.1 He married Nora Rachel Gillmore, daughter of Ephriam Bradley Gillmore and Mary Emily Hunt, on 26 February 1909 at the home of her parents, Texas Co., OK, ceremony by Rev. K. McNier. William was first married to Elizabeth "Lizzie" Ella Croghan (1881-1902) on 29 AUG 1894 at Eureka, Humboldt County, California, and had a son Claude James Brooks (1896-1981) and a daughter Mamie "May" (1898-1979) who married Austin Taylor in 1917 and lived at Mill Valley. May later remarried to Alfred Gunnell.
