Does anyone have information on the relatives and descendants of Jonathan Brooks and Margaret Reybourn/Reyburn/Reaburn of Botetourt County, VA?

According to Warren County IL Brooks family tradition, we are descended from their son Thomas. The records aren't clear, but Thomas may have had a brother William (1816-1843?) married to Jane (?) He may also have had a sister Nancy and a sister Charlotte. One of the girls may have married Jeremiah Powell.

Thomas Brooks b. 19 Jan 1791 at VA (per family bible) d. 19 Sep 1842 at Berwick, Warren County, IL. Married 1812 to Elizabeth Lee b, 22 Feb 1789 KY? d. 19 Feb 1847 IL, daughter of William Lee and Ann Dickinson(?).

They were in Warren County KY 1820, 1830 and 1840 census. In 1841 they were In Warren County IL, with children: Emily b. 1813 m. Riggs, Juliann b. 1814 m. Harrison/Jewell, William L. b. 1816 m. Ray, Thompson b. 1819 m. Ray, Maryann b. 1821 m. Capps and Asenath b. 1825 m. Simmons.

Any relatives out there? I am descended from Maryann Brooks Capps.

Thanks, Martha
