James BROCK b. 1802 in NC>AL>TX
Posted by: Van Brock (ID *****0974) Date: September 03, 2008 at 11:19:37
  of 65481

I am a descendant of William Brock (1792-1863), Coweta Co., GA.
He had been canonized as William S. Brock (b. 1786, Rutherford Co., NC)
to Reuben (1754-1842) and Eliz. Camp Brock, but Coweta Co. censuses
identify his birth as 1792, and my Y-DNA and that of another Wm descendant
is R1b1b2, whereas Reuben's descendants seem to be coming up with J2 YDNA.
So my William seems to have been orphaned. I know that my grandfather had some connections with NE Alabama Brocks. Also, we have fraternal twins in the family,as does your James, apparently, and James is of an age that he could be a brother or cousin of my William.
We also had a YDNA match with the Decatur Co., GA, Brocks.
I am wondering if you have any more knowledge on James' N.C. parents or siblings or if you know of YDNA results for Brock descendants of any of the following:

James BROCK b. 1802 in NC. He appeared in the following censuses: 1830, 1850 Henry Co, AL; 1860 Polk Co, TX; 1870 and 1880 Robertson Co, TX. He died on 22 Oct 1880 in Robertson Co, TX.
He m. Matilda A. JOWERS on 11 Aug 1827 in Henry Co, AL. Matilda A. JOWERS b. 1810 in GA. She is assumed to have died between 1860 and 1870.
