Hi Ginger,
According to our information Jeremiah was born 1773 in Virginia, parents unknown. He married Elizabeth Thomas March 18th, 1795, in Caswell County. (The marriage bond gave the name "Brookes" - all later records are "Brooks", and the bond was signed by Thomas Thomas, apparently Elizabeth's brother.)
The family is listed with three children in the 1800 census, David b.Abt.1796, Andrew b.abt. 1798 and either Nancy or Green?
In 1805 a deed from Lord Granville shows purchase of their farm near Leasburg, and more land was bought through the years.
Supposedly they are listed through the 1870 census in Person County.
It is assumed that Jeremiah's birth records may have been destroyed by fire sometime during the war that started soon after his birth.
The abbreviations in your message, are they gender and presumed ages? I am a bit puzzled.
The eldest son, David, married Elizabeth Terrell 6th October 1816 in Caswell,they lived in Caswell and Person Counties, then moved to Tennessee about 1852 with their family.
Jeremiah apparently lived to the age of 98, he died in Person County in 1871 and is buried at Ebenezer Baptist Church.
