Hi Bill,

My gg grandfather was John Bartlett Mottesheard who, along with Samuel and Danial lived for a while together in Kanawa co. Va. now West Virginia. While Samuel made his way to Missouri after the death of his wife, John Bartlett bought his land and stayed. I believe Daniel S. at some point moved back to Monroe co. but you would know more about that. Most of these Mottesheards stayed around Charleston, my father being an exception, moving to Louisiana. I am aware of a family bible dating back to the early 1820s with geneology records in it. It mentions Brooks but does not go back any further. I have come to a roadblock in my searching. I can find nothing before the marriage of Brooks to Matilda Coleback Figgat. I know her earlier husband was born in England.
If I can provide any more info please let me know.
