Melinda-- I am from Bell Co., Ky. and my grandmother was a Brock who lived in the Kettle Island-- Straight Creek area of our county. Kettle Island once had a boarding house run by some Brock's-- including my grandmother. Know anything about this? What breed of indian was your great grandfather? I am sure there is a connection to my family here if we can find it.

I have much information on Brock's in Harlan and Bell Co. Ky. My grandmother was Mary Jane Brock, daughter of John and Sylvesta Saylor Brock. One of her sister's researched the Brock family tree fairly extensively and wrote a book about this. What is the specific information that you are looking for?

Melinda-- I am fairly sure (will have to check this out) that there was a band of Crow Indians who settled up around Kettle Island for awhile. Do you have any idea of your grandfather's birthdate? Even an approximate one would help.

My Allen Brock was born 1812 in KY, father was John Brock. Would be interested in finding cousins from this Brock line. Have Civil War letters from sons that family might be interested in.
