Would like information about the family of William BROOKS, born about 1754 Virginia and died about 1836 -1837 Gates County NC. Some of his children were Henry, William C., Eliza/Elizabeth, Catherine and Jesse G., Agatha and Sarah. Two (2) of his grandsons were George and Joseph J. BROOKS. Sarah was Mrs NICHOLSON (may have moved to Indiana and then to Iowa. Agatha was the wife of Elijah HARRELL. Elizabeth was the first wife of Joseph BROOKS and the mother of Joseph J. BROOKS. Daughter-in-law was "Polley" BROOKS.

There is a stone in Gates County with the following information..... (from a web site)

William Brooks, 1738-1781 Middlesex VA to area 1778
wife, Elizabeth C.
daughter, Katherine Frances
son, William 1754-1836....Rev War 1778
wife, Elizabeth B.
daughter, Agatha 1810-1878

There is more information on the stone.

William BROOKS left his family Bible to grandson, George BROOKS. Would like to know the birth dates of all of William and Elizabeth B. BROOKS' children. Plus, William (1738-1781)and Elizabeth C. BROOKS' other children names.

Some of William's children and granchildren went to Pasquotank County North Carolina.

Where and when did Henry BROOKS died?

Who was George BROOKS that was on the early tax rolls (1780 - 1830)?

Thanks.
Lavona
