It’s Family Time~Alsey Brock

Its-Family-Time2


Alsey Brock was born 25 June 1855, a son of Hezekiah Brock and Sarah ‘Sallie’ Morris.

Alsey’s father, Hezekiah Brock, was captured on 1 March 1865 and made a prisoner of war (POW). He was forced marched to Wilmington, NC and placed on a troop train to Pt. Lookout, Maryland.

Alsey was 6 years old when his father was taken away and he would never see his father again. His father, Hezekiah, died in Prison on 12 June 1865 months after the War had ended.

Alsey was a bachelor and lifelong farmer in Chesterfield County.  He died sometime after 27 April 1910, the date of Census enumeration. No record of his death has been found.

Alsey Brock is my Great Grand Uncle.
