Anson County Deed Book W, page 147-148  lists Ben Brock, James Brock, Eli P. Brock and Squire Brock.

 These 4 men are believed to be related. While I have no proof, I feel certain that Squire Brock mention in this deed is the Father of my Hezekiah Brock.

 

I believe that Ben & James listed in the below deed are brothers and that Squire H. Brock & Eli P. Brock are sons of James Brock.

 

These references are all that are known of Ben & Catherine. James Brock remained listed in Chesterfield County, SC census through 1840.

 

Eli P. Brock is believed to have migrated to Mississippi where he died abt 1844

1844 - Moses Brock, adm of the estate of Eli P. Brock, dec'd. Accounts include burial expenses, printer's bill, taxes for 1843 & 1844. 20 Dec 1844 - Auditors for estate report: one lot of sundries $6; one yearling $3. Estate declared insolvent 23 Jun 1846. 17 April 1851 publication of estate brings in no additional money. Heirs listed: Samuel Brock, Esquire Brock, Benjamin Brock (non-residents of the state). What relationship is Eli to Moses? [Ref: Eli P. Brock Probate # 778, Hinds Co. Court House, Raymond, MS, 2004]

 

Heirs listed: Samuel Brock, Esquire Brock, Benjamin Brock (non-residents of the state).

These are brothers who remained in SC , Samuel W. Brock,  b. ca 1796, md. Martha LNU (last name unknown); Squire H. Brock, b. 5 Feb. 1805, d. 10 Feb 1888, md. Rachel Parker and Benjamin Brock, b. ca 1790, d.  bef 1870, md. Temperance LNU (Last name unknown).

 

I don�t know how Moses fits; but, suspect that he is also a brother to Eli P., Samuel, Squire & Benjamin.

 

Squire H. Brock remained in SC. He was born 5 Feb 1805, died 10 Feb 1888. He is believed to be the Father of my GGGrandfather, Hezekiah Brock.
