The gravestone of my husband's distant Grandfather, Jesse Brock, Revolutionary War soldier. "Jesse Brock was the first settler of Wallins Creek Kentucky. He was about a three-quarter Indian, and had so much Indian blood in him, that he had no trouble in living among the Indians who were thickly settled in the mountains when he first came, raised his family among them, hunted along with them, with no trouble whatever." Excerpt from the interview of Elijah Brock with Annie Walker Burns. He was born b. 1752, Cumberland Co., VA. Died 1843 in Wallins Creek, Harlan Co., KY>


Gloria Baragona It would be helpful to know the state/city where Jesse lived.
