I am interested in Christopher Brock, son of Joseph and Mary Isler Brock. I have just printed off the descendant chart of the Isler family and it states that Christopher Brock b & d unknown.

I have traced my Brock ancestors back to Laban/Labon/Labron/Sebron/Brock who was in Fairfield County SC in 1820 & 1830. He moved his family to Limestone County, AL between 1830 and 1840.

The only family that I could "fit" Laban into was the household of Christopher Brock of Fairfield County, SC

My reasoning as to why I think Christopher may possibly be the parent of Laban Brock is - Christopher bought land in Fairfield County, SC in 1799. Laban and his family were living in Fairfield County, South Carolina in 1820 and 1830. In the 1820 census, Laban was shown with a wife age 16-26; a daughter under 10; Labon was 26-45. Laban's, or his wife's, mother over the age of 45, was living in their household.

1800 census of Fairfield County, SC - Christopher Brock was listed on page 219, with 1 male 26 - 45 (1755-1774, probably closer to 1774); 2 males under 10 (1790-1800); 1 female over 45 (b. before 1755). His neighbors included Moses Bowler, John Wright, Charles Riley, ____ Young, Jarvis Gibson, Philip Dyre, Wm Jah_____, Jesse Jenkins, John Dunlop, Burrell Hollis, Matthew Richmond, Moses Hollis, Thomas Hughes, Henry Pag___, David Mur___, James Wilson, Isaac Reynolds, Thomas Ferrell, John Flak__in, James Campbell, David Lavender, Robert Ewing, William Ewing, John W. Ewing, John EAVES, James Blain, William Cameron, James THOMPSON, William THOMPSON, Henry MOORE.

1800 Census of Union County, SC - Union County joined Fairfield County where Christopher was listed. The Brocks in Union County were: Charles, page 249; David, page 139; Evins, page 248; Joseph, page 229; and William, page 238.

Laban moved his family to Limestone County between 1830 and 1840. In the 1840 Limestone Co, AL Census Elizabeth was listed head of the household, Labon may have been disabled or sick. His two sons were still at home. He had 1 male slave under 10 and l female SLAVE 26-46. Three, of the people in this household, were involved in farming.

Any information will be appreciated.
