Yes, all three are the same Caroline Brooking. Her maiden name was Henry and she married a man named Flowers before marrying William Henry Brooking in Alabama. Wm died about 1855 in Texas. She has one of the early land grants in LA and also has one in Texas. Don't know what happened to Edward and Washington. I assume they may be dead because neither was on the 1870 census. I have had no luck finding Edward (Edwin) on the 1880 census although I know he was alive then based on an affidavit his mother made.
The listing of her as Carter on the 1880 Panola census was an error. The Brooking family was prominent in VA and GA. Name was originally Brooking, got skewed in Alabama.
