    Notes 
    • INFO ON JOHN P. WESTBROOK FAMILY WAS COMPILED BY JEAN GOODRICH JOHNSON FROM BIBLE OWNED IN 1995 BY JOHN JOSEPH WESTBROOK, SANDSTON, VA.
      BIBLE WAS ORIGINALLY PRESENTED TO ROSA ADELAIDE WESTBROOK SLEDGE BY HER HUSBAND, JOHN HENRY SLEDGE ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF HER 25TH BIRTHDAY ON 1/27/1884.
      SHE BEQUETHED THE BIBLE TO HER NEPHEW, JOSEPH PAUL WESTBROOK, THE FATHER OF JOHN JOSEPH WESTBROOK. THE CHILDRENS' INFO VERIFIED TO CENSUS RECORDS BY PAT HARPER HARRIS, DTR. OF MERYL O. WESTBROOK HARPER.

      5-12-05---See email from JGJ to Carolyn Bowyer in MY DOCUMENTS-GENEALOGY folder for information sent to her.

      Gene
      You need to see this will in
      Southampton Co VA will book 17 p. 378 & 379; will date 13 July 1859; will proved 19 Aug 1861

      It is for Sarah M. A. Ramsey, daughter of Jacob Ramsey and Lucy Claud.

      Now from what I can tell in recent records found -
      Lucy Claud
      m. 1st Richard Harrison before Sept 1808; Richard died in late 1809
      m. 2nd John P. Westbrook May 20, 1811 [not sure of his parents yet] however, think I know.
      m. 3rd Jacob Ramsey May 15, 1815 [Jacob Ramsey out lived Lucy] [don't have DOD for Lucy yet]

      I will send you Jacob' will later.

      From this will we see that Jacob and Lucy Ramsey's daughter calls your John P Westbrook her brother She is leaving land to John P Westbrook's widow Mary J Westbrook This would mean that Lucy Harrison who m. John P. Westbrook is most likely the mother of your John P Westbrook

      What do you think? Do you recognize any names in this will? You might want to look for these records in Sussex Co or Southampton Co on land
      I am going to look to see when the land was sold that Sarah Ramsey mentions in this will.

      Also found a deed were Augustus T. Westbrook and his wife Emily Same as your John P Westbrook and wife Mary J. Augustus T Westbrook should be brother to your John P Westbrook, however, He is not mentioned in this will as a brother

      Still working on this.

      Virginia
      More to come as we find it.
