George Williamson sheriff, deed to Henry Cobb due to execution against Thomas Brooks Jr. which was recovered by Solomon Graves & Son, $223, 170 acres adjacent Joseph Bracken.

Included with estate papers for Thomas Brooks, 1824, is a receipt I believe should be part of this Thomas' estate. Joseph Brackin is listed as administrator of Thomas Brooks, Jr. in right of his wife Jane Brackin and the original paper does not have a complete date. Mentions the personal estate of Thomas Brooks, deceased father of Mary Adkins, wife of James Adkins, and her share of $250. The document was entered into record on Apr 3 , 1824. William Morgan Junior and Warren Watford witnessed the original receipt.

Thomas BROOKES Jr. and Jane "Jenny" FLIPPIN were married on 16 February 1791 in Caswell County, North Carolina.10,62 Jane "Jenny" FLIPPIN5, daughter of Thomas FLIPPIN and Dorothy BROOKES, was born on 10 February 1775 in Gloucester County, Virginia.63 She was christened on 1 April 1775 in Gloucester County, Virginia.63 She died in 1838 at the age of 63 in Caswell County, North Carolina.

I think this is "Jenny Flippin", daughter of Thomas Flippen and Dorothy Brooks of Gloucester County VA. Thomas Brooks Sr. was guardian of Jenny at her request 20 Apr 1790. I think it's likely Dorothy was Thomas' sister or a niece - she's slightly too old to be his daughter.[I believe this to be the Jane Flipping that married Thomas Brooks Jr.]

I found the later marriages:
Jenney Brooks to Robert Dixon.
Joseph Brackin to Jenny Dixon.
