I have not located probate records for Jesse Brooks, son of Thomas Brooks and Margaret Beaumont/Beamon, who died in Edmonson County, Kentucky, on 30 January 1860. As far as I know, no one else has found an estate file for Jesse, either, and no document has been located that provides a list of his children.

Jesse Brooks, son of Thomas Brooks and Margaret Beaumont/Beamon, was born in Frederick County, Virginia, in 1783-1786. His death listing in the 1860 death register of Edmonson County, Kentucky, shows him dying in that county on 30 January 1860, aged 75.[1] A digital image of the death listing is above. This document states that Jesse’s parents were Thomas and Margaret Brooks and that he was born in Virginia.
