Welcome to Our Heritage. Hope you have a good time and if you have any questions
please leave a message. Have a great time and here is a little more about where
my Ancestry Started:
I started out by wanting to get more information on my grandma Rushie Darlene Brock-
I knew I had because of the Cherokee blood running through her veins, and I have
always carried on the Tradition, Me and My family go to the Lebanon Indiana Pow Wow
August, the third week-end, we dance and have a great time-its like a family
reunion for my family.
This is the time of the year we all get together. If at all possible we camp out,
dance with the beat of the drums and have a piece of mind and feel free.
I found out so much. I still think I'm dreaming. When I first went to a Pow Wow in
the early 80's I cried and my grandmother was there in the circle with me I felt at
peace for the first time in my life
Here is a little of what I have found out with help from our family and a whole bunch
more of the family was looking also, we all found the same info.
Brock side of the Family:
Aaron Brock was 1/2 Cherokee Indian and he married a full blooded Cherokee Indian. He
lived in Cumberland County, Virginia, and came to Knox county, later Harlan county,
He married Susan . Children of Aaron Brock and Susan are:
1. Jesse Brock. Born 8 DEC 1751 Cumberland County,Virginia . Died 13 OCT 1843 Wallins
Creek,Harlan County, Ky..
2. Mahala Susannah Brock. Born 1749 Cumberland County,Virginia. Died 1820 Clay
3. George Brock. Born Bet. 1753-1762 Shenandoah County,Virg inia. Died JAN 1839
Washington County, Indiana.
4. Reuben Brock. Born 1754 .
5. Mary "Polly" Brock. Born 28 OCT 1757 Virginia. Died 28 F EB 1855 Harlan County,
6. James Brock. Born Bet 1759-1760 Virginia. Died SEP 183 1 Cumberland County,
7. Aaron Brock. Born 1748 Virginia.
He married Rhoda Sizemore. Born 1783 TN. Died Perry Co. KY.
The Indian Chief for whom Red Bird Creek in Clay County was named is known as a
member of the Whitetop Laurel Band of Cherokees from North Carolina. He was a great
hunter and allured by the game in this remote region. He finally took up residence on
the creek that bears his name at the mouth of Jacks Creek in this county. He came to
his death by the abarice of the "pale face". There lived with him a crippled Indian
named Willie. This man dressed the skins which Red Bird brought to their wigwam and
looked after the culinary department of their house.
Some hunters from North Carolina, greedy and unscrupulous, came to the wigwam and
murdered Willie. Then they secreted themselves and awaited the return of the brave
chief who had long before buried his tomahawk and for years had been living in peace
with the white man, and as he approached his crude castle the bullet of an assasin
laid him in the dust. They threw his body into a hole of water nearby which is still
called "Willie Hole", and from which John Gilbert and others took him and buried him.
One tradition is that he was sitting on the bank of a creek fishing when he was shot
and that he fell into the creek."
He was also known as Cutsawah Brock, Cherokee name for Red Bird. He signed a treaty
with Dillon Asher at Harlan Co., KY. He lived before 1799 at Clay Co., KY; according
to a historical marker which read;
Chief Red Bird was a legendary Cherokee Indian for whom this fork of the Kentucky
River is named. He and another Indian, Jack, whose name was given the creek to the
south, were friendly with early settlers and permitted them to hunt in the area.
Allegedly they were killed in battle protecting their furs, and the bodies thrown
into the river here. The ledges bear markings attributed to Red Bird.
1966, Kentucky Historical Society, Kentucky Department of Highways #908. He
immigrated before 1815 to Red Bird, Harlan Co., KY; The first Aaron, Reuben's son,
married an Indian named Susan, who was from the Cherokee Nation in the Carolinas, and
when son Jesse (Revolutionary soldier) was granted land, Aaron and Susan moved with
him from South Carolina to Kentucky.
(A note on Rootsweb by a Silas Begley, a Sizemore descendant, disputes the whole
story that Aaron Brock was Chief Red Bird.)
Aaron married Susannah Caroline (Brock) before 1748 in Virginia. (Susannah Caroline
(Brock) was born in 1725 in Cherokee Nation, Carolinas and died after 1760 in Clay
RED BIRD ~ The Indian chief for whom Red Bird Creek in Clay County was named
was probably a Cherokee from Tennessee or North Carolina. Like others of his
race, he was a great hunter and allured by the game in this remote region he
finally took up his residence on the creek that bears his name at the mouth of
Jack's Creek in this county. He came to his death by the avarice of the "pale
face." There lived with him a crippled Indian named Willie. This man dressed
the skins which Red Bird brought to their wigwam and looked after the culinary
department of their house. Some hunters from North Carolina, greedy and
unscrupulous, came to the wigwam and murdered Willie. They then secreted
themselves and awaited the return of the brave chief who had long before buried
his tomahawk and for years had been living in peace with the white man, and as
he approached his crude castle the bullet of an assassin laid him in the dust.
They threw his body into a hole of water nearby which is still called "Willie's
Hole," and from which John Gilbert and others took him and buried him. One
tradition is that he was sitting on the bank of a creek fishing when he was
shot and that he fell into the creek
theres plenty of more.
there is many versions of what happened, but of course we do not know because we
were not there
