Shared note

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Bolivar, Benton, Indiana, 39-year-old, Indiana-born John Brooks and his 31-year-old, Ireland-born wife, Mary [O'Donnell] Brooks have been married five years. Mary has borne four children and three are living. These three Indiana-born children are 4-year-old Joseph, 3-year-old Ernest, and 6-month-old John A. Mary immigrated to the United States in 1893 and has been in this country for six years. John is a railroad section foreman. Both John and Mary are literate and speak English. The family is living in a rented house. The birthplace of John's father is unknown, but his mother was born in Virginia. Mary's parents were born in Ireland. The children's father was born in Indiana and their mother in Ireland.

Ernest is missing from the 1910 census and may be presumed to be one of the six children who have died.
