12 !BIOGRAPHY:
James Irving BROOKS, Jr., my Father, was born on 28 Apr 1927 in Montpelier, Hanover County, VA. He is the son of James Irving BROOKS (Senior), my Grandfather (Granddaddy), and Marian Elizabeth BOUGHAN, my Grandmother (Nana). He has one sister, Kathleen Howerton BROOKS CRAIG, my Aunt Kitty. My Grandfather was the principal of the school at Montpelier, which is still standing on U.S. Route 33. Dad was born "at home" in a cottage owned by Dr. STANLEY, Beulah STANLEY TRIPLETT's father. Dr. STANLEY delivered my Father. Irving, Jr. lived in Montpelier for about a year after his birth at which time the family moved to Callands, Pittsylvania County, VA. It was while living at Callands that Dad blew his hand off with blasting caps.

According to my Aunt Kitty, the family moved to Callands in the late
summer of 1928, when my Grandfather took the job as Principal at the
Callands school. There were no houses nearby to rent so the family
boarded with Mr. & Mrs. ARNN (spelling?), a local store-keeper. Kitty
tells the story where on the way to Callands, they followed U.S. Route 15 to Clarksville. At the intersection of Routes 15 and 58, they found that they could not get across the Roanoke River because the water was too high. They were told to go back up Rt. 58 and go across the "Steel Bridge" into North Carolina, but Granddad went back up Route 15 and into Brookneal, VA, where they spent the night. The next day, they drove on into Callands. Mr. ARNN's house was next to his store, but he owned several other houses down the road a ways. By the end of their first year at Callands, two of Mr. ARNN's houses became available. Neither house had a well so water had to be brought from a spring nearby. One house was on the side of the road where the spring was located, but one of the people that had lived in the house had had tuberculosis, the other house was across the road from the spring. Granddaddy didn't want to live in the house where there
had been tuberculosis and he didn't want to walk across the road to get water, so Mr. ARNN agreed to have a well dug at the house across the road while the family went back to Dunbrooke to live with my Great-Grandfather Henry Edgar BROOKS during the summer months while school was out.

Callands is located in the foothills of Piedmont, VA. The soil is red
soil composed of deteriorated rock. Not far under the surface is hard
fractured stone. The workmen digging the well had hard work and had to blast out the rock to hit water. In the fall, when the family returned from Dunbrooke, they moved into the house with the new well.

Granddaddy and Nana always "borrowed" a milk cow from a local farmer for milk. They would feed the cow through the Winter at their expense and return it in the summer when they returned to Dunbrooke. A storage shed was located on the property where they stored the feed for the cow. Kitty says that the shed also housed a number of cats that kept mice under control. The workmen who had finished digging the well in the summer left a "dollar watch box" full of blasting caps in the shed.

Dad was playing in the shed one day in May of 1930 when he found the box of blasting caps. He took them to my Grandfather who was painting a wagon on one of the side porches. Granddad didn't know what they were and told Dad to take them into the kitchen for Kitty to put on top of the stove until Nana came home. Nana was out at the store at the time. Kitty and Betty HODGES, a friend of Kitty's, were in the kitchen cutting out a dress on the kitchen table. Kitty says she took one of the caps, not knowing what it was, and put it to her lips and blew through it like a whistle. They put the box on top of the stove near the stove matches.

A little later that day, Dad came back into the kitchen and climbed on
top of the stove and got the matches and the box of blasting caps. He
went out into the yard and held a match to one of the caps thinking that it was a firecracker. The cap went off and blew off the three middle fingers of Dad's left hand and injured his left eye. Nana was at Mr. Arnn's store and heard the blast. The men at the store commented on "who would be shooting a gun at this time of day" but they realized the sound came from Nana's house so they went running to see what had happened.

The Sheriff was at Mr. Arnn's store and drove Nana to the house. He then drove Nana and Dad to the hospital in Danville, VA, which was the closest one to Callands. Granddaddy followed. Kitty says she went to stay with Betty HODGES. Granddad returned and Nana stayed with Dad in Danville. The doctor's tried to save Dad's little finger and thumb, but found that they could not. They removed his hand at the wrist. Dad was given a tetanus shot and he had a reaction to it. Kitty says that they were concerned for his life not from his injuries but from the shot. A lady who was a patient at the hospital brought Dad a small present every day he was in the hospital and when he left to go home, she gave him a basket that had a present for each day for a month.

The school board chairman understood that it would be hard for Granddaddy and Nana to continue to live in Callands after the accident, so he went to Clarksville, VA to inquire about a Principals post. The post became available and the BROOKS family moved to Clarksburg the next Fall. Interview with Kathleen Howerton BROOKS CRAIG and personal knowledge of the author.
