52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks 2019 – Week 9

This week’s prompt is ‘At The Courthouse.’

There were many before me who claimed that James Burk was my 7th great grandfather.  The daughter’s name is in question, but it is believed by many that Honora Burk married William Brookshire.  Honora and William would have been my 6th great grandparents.

Courthouse records for James Burk list William Brookshire as receiving a bequest in his will that states William Brookshire was in fact his son-in-law.
