    I find your Website interesting, I stumbled on to it. I was researching your information on Brookshires. My cousin has done ancestry.com for awhile.The differences I found are he has William Brookshire 1721-1786 married to Sarah Honour Gardner 1732-1789 they married in Fairfax Va. They had 12 children. Their son William Brookshire 1756-1836 married Maryann Burk 1762-1830. I have been excited to learn all this information. I have always lived on the west coast and only recently met other Brookshires that were not family I was familiar with, now I have learned we are all related. I would love to hear from you. I know my cousin would too. He has been in contact with quite a few in the family. My g-g Grandfather Alvy was Nancy Emilines yunger brother….Liz
