Notes
a. Note:   reek in Lunenburg Co. William Embry wrote his will May 6, 1759. He was probated Feb. 5, 1760 in Lunenburg Co., VA (Will Book 1, pg. 290). William named his wife, Elizabeth Embry, and children, William, Henry, Ermine, Martha and unborn child. He also devised 119 acres of land on Reedy Creek to Elisha Brooks, no relationship stated. Since we know Elisha's wife was Frances, she may have been the daughter of William Embry. However, the will of Henry Embry lists grandchildren William, Henry, Ermine, Martha, and Elizabeth, children of son, William, dec'd. He does not list Francis as a grandchild. Other researchers list Frances as a Goode or a Smith Some researchers list Elisha Brooks' mother as Elizabeth Embry. Possibly this is the connection to the Embrys rather than through his wife, Frances.
