  • Notes  Married:
    • There are many researchers who assert that William's wife was Mary Sarah Honour:
      * Born: Abt 1732, Virginia or North Carolina, USA
      * Marriage: William Brookshire Sr. in 1750 in North Carolina, USA
      * Died: 1789, Rowan or Randolph County, North Carolina, USA about age 57
      * Buried: Rowan County, North Carolina, USA.

      However, I can find no compelling proof regarding Mary Sarah Honour. I have found no parents or siblings for her, nor any type of official record, such as marriage, probate, etc.

      There is some evidence, however, that a woman named Honour Burk was married to man named William Brookshire; her father's will refers to a son-in-law named William Brookshire.

      Therefore, my conclusion, at this time, is that Honour Burk is William's wife.
