Middlebrook(s) Family Register Update

The Association sponsoring the first update since the 1909 publishing of Louis Frank Middlebrook’s Register of the Middlebrook Family. Additional updates are envisioned at 10-year intervals. This first update will add an additional two generations to the Register for a total of 12, and span the years from 1635 to about 1930. Your help is needed.

This is a great and exciting family history project and the family needs everyone’s input. The update will consist of corrections to the original and additions through the 1920s. Louis’s 1909, 412-page register chronicles the family’s growth from the early 1600s through the early 1900s and this update will be the first in nearly 100 years.

Please contact us and help with your early turn of the (19th -20th) century family information. If you are uncertain or feel that you lack the genealogical skills to participate, we will be glad to provide guidance. This is a family team effort and we realize that not all will have the same level of expertise.

The update covers two distinct areas of the family:

  • One is the Middlebrook/s descendants from Caswell County, North Carolina. The Register lists these descendants as the ten brothers: Isaac b. 1753, John 1755, David b. 1757, Micajah b. 1758, James b. 1759, Sims b. 1762, Thomas b. 1763, Robert b. 1766, Joseph b. 1770, and Garland b. 1774. Do you know from which of these brothers you descend?
  • The second is the New England descendants of Sarah b. 1675, Hannah b.1677, John b. 1678, Joseph b. 1680, Jonathan b.1684, and John Wilson, Isaac, Daniel, Joseph, Stephen and Elizabeth all baptized in 1697.

This family history project provides a great opportunity to learn more about your ancestors and preserve our family heritage for future generations. Middlebrooks descendants are encouraged to join in this project by providing pre-1900 family information, pointing the way to other family contacts.
