How appropriate of a name!
|Portion of Wyesocking Bay area in Hyde County, NC|
Stephen and Mary, as well as her father owned land on Hatteras at one point... speaking of point, Brooks Point near present Brigand's Bay is named for one of the Stephens... either this guy or his dad. After Stephen Jr.'s death, his wife Mary and son Isaac held the property for awhile. Stephen had passed away at his home in the marsh in 1797.
Interestingly, a great many families can be found in both places, Hatteras and Hyde County. Brooks, Midyett, Gibbs, Davis, Wahab, etc lived in both places, many of them began with a single person who lived in both... like Stephen Brooks.
I wonder where his ship is....? I know some underwater archaeologists in ECU's Maritime Program... hum... :) I'll probably need the funds to find it first. Oh, well.
Here's the cemetery data that I found:
