(file moved to Newberry when son William Elisha took over as ADM ) The 1782 Estate of Elisha Brooks, Sr. showed that he and John Satterwhite co-owned waggoning business together from 1773 to 1779. John's name appeared on this estate several times. Also, there are Bartlett Satterwhite and Barttly Brooks on this estate. Also, John Satterwhite came from Lunenburg County, VA as did Elisha Brooks. (See Mecklenburg Co., VA Deed Book 1, pg. 375 above) Some researchers list Elisha Brooks' mother as Elizabeth Embry. Possibly this is Elisha's connection to the Embrys rather than through his wife.
