I duno why But something inside me nags at me to do my family tree.
Especially on my Father's side The Brocketts.
As he grew up in an orphanage And knew or knows very little of his Family.
The eldest his brother Earl has sinced deceased And they all are aging.
So I guess I figure now is the time if ever I am to unravel the mystery of our family's history. My father is Charles F Brockett Sr. he is son to A charles J Brockett And His mother was Edith Unsure of her maiden name He was Born in Free port Il. And was raised in the Soldiers orphanage in Davenport Ia.(known in QC area as Anne whittemmeyer Home)
would appreciate any and all help from all
Am unclear as to where the Brockett name originates if its Is England,Scottish,or French. Also there may have been an e at the end of our name that was either dropped or was never meant to be there...But was a typo But we have all ways been Brockett to my knowledge could we have originally been Brockette?
