Abraham P. Brookover (Jr.?)1

ID#3116, b. about 1856
Per the 1860 U.S. census, it appeared that Josephus Brookover and Katharine (unknown) were candidates to be Abraham's parents;2 however, the informant on the marriage record for A. P. Brookover, Jr. and Sarah Jane Roberts was none other than A. P. Brookover, Sr., making it appear that there would have been two Abraham P. Brookovers being father and son. More research is needed to know the details of Abraham's parents.1

Birth date: about 18561 or about 1855.2
Birth place: Monongalia County, Virginia.1,2

Abraham married Sarah Jane Roberts, daughter of Alexander H. "Alec" Roberts and Lavina Ellen Ensminger, on 16 June 1878 in Wetzel County, West Virginia. Samuel Hanen, a minister of the Christian Church, certified that he united them in marriage at Mrs. Roberts', the bride's mother.1

Per most records I have seen, it appears that Abraham did not use the "Jr." suffix that appears on his marriage record.2
