Brookshire Family Genealogy Forum
I am researching Elizabeth Sluder the daughter of Henry Sluder of Rowan County, NC. She married Mannering Brookshire on 14 Dec 1790, Jesse Brookshire was the bondsman. I know that she was still alive in 1818 because her mother mentions her in her will that was probated in Rowan County, NC. My problem is, some say that Mannering Brookshire went to Madison County, KY by 1800. A Manun Brucksher shows up on the tax list in 1800. If, in fact, this is the same Mannering Brookshire, did he go and come back to Rowan County? Did he leave his wife in NC while he was exploring KY?
Or am I way off base about which Mannering Brookshire married Elizabeth Sluder?
Any help here?
