Mary Evaline Haning Brooks


Born: October 2, 18 Cherokee City, Indian Territory
Died: March 16, 1970 at Wewoka, Oklahoma
Buried at Oakwood Cemetery, Wewoka, Oklahoma

Parents: Frank Haning and Annie Davis

Biographical notes: Eva Haning Brooks, known as "Evvy", was my Grandma Brooks. She was a Pentecostal Holiness minister. I don't remember her sermons. I do remember that, when someone else was preaching, she took me by the hand and led me to the altar. She prayed for me there and at a home altar that was simply a stack of quilts that she had made.

I'll include sources for the information wherever possible.

If I have recorded a family member's voice, I may include it here.

double wedding ring quilt

Without the red band and scalloped edge, this would be exactly like the double wedding ring quilt Grandma Brooks made for me. I have pictures of each of my three babies with the double wedding ring quilt as a background. My pictures, which I may later put on the photographs page, are black and white, so I chose this colorful picture to illustrate Grandma's page.

Memories and Stories

I'll use this area to describe any personal memories I have about this person, or any family stories about the person I might have heard.

If this family member has a web page or e-mail address of their own, I might include the address here.
