      Thanks to Billye D. Jackson, who reads from the book "The Brookshire Family" by Glenna Brookshire Beck and Sheridan Charles Randolph. A notation indicates "William F. Brookshire has copied the following from by Bible of William Brookshire II and his wife Mary Ann. The data was written in William Brookshire's ... own handwriting."

      He also received a pension for services rendered during the American Revolution; the application was filed in Wilkes Co., NC on 6 Nov 1834. He entered service in August, 1775 (or 1776) and was drafted for a tour of duty in Rowan Co., NC. He was in the company of militia commanded by Capt. Israel Cox & Lieutenant Benjamin Davis, and later Col. Matthew Locke. Later, he was part of a group who pursued Col. David Fanning near the waters of Deep River. His pension was approved.
