Others of his family buried in Laurel Co., KY:

John Brock, 1784-1857, stated on his remarriage in 1852 that he was born Louisa Co., VA (uncle who raised Elder George Brock)

 Elder William Brock, 1827-1911, a cousin, son of Ragan Brock, son of Capt. John Brock (1784-1857), son of Allen Brock & Lydia Reese

In her book, The Family, History, and Descendants of Elder George Washington Brock (1809-1879), Volume I (Vincinnes, IN: Vincinnes Univ. Printing, 2002), author Alice Brock Faulkner wrote , "There is much written and considerable controversy on the grand parentage of Captain John and Banner Brock. The question seems to be which, John Brock or Allen Brock, is the grandfather of John, Banner, and their siblings." It appears that the only thing in agreement is that his mother was Lydia Reece. "First Lt. John Brock b. 1750 is the father of Banner." She cites DAR application, but no other evidence.
