I am related to these Westbrooks through my paternal side of the family. Sarah Margaret "Sallie" Westbrook was my grandmother's grandmother.

Tilmon Westbrook was a farmer who was born in South Carolina about 1801. By 1824 he was living in Pittsylvania County, Virginia where he married Lucy Davis on 15 Oct. In the Pittsylvania County, VA marriage record Tilmon's name is spelled 'Tilghman', but I am certain it is the same person. He is found on the 1840 Jackson County, GA census with his surname spelled 'Westbrooke'. In 1850 they were living in Gilmer County, GA and had five children. It is possible that that there were more children than I have knowledge of.

Lucy had probably died by 1859, as Tilmon had married a second time that year. In Aug 1859 he married Eliza Rice in Atlanta, GA, but they were married only a short time. Tilmon was killed in Atlanta on 4 Nov 1859, cause of death unknown at this time. He is buried at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, unfortunately with no marker is on his grave.

+ Lucy Davis was born about 1795 in Virginia and died probably before 1859, location unknown.

Benjamin Westbrook, a farmer, who was born about 1825 in Georgia. He was in Benton County (now Calhoun County), Alabama by the early 1850's where he married Amanda WHITE on 27 Dec 1852. They lived in Benton County, AL (1860 census) then Talladega County, AL (1870 census)where Benjamin was working in a saw mill, before moving to Mississippi. In 1880 they are found living in Chickasaw County, MS. From there, at least two of their children went to Lamar County, TX and the families spread out from there.
