    Another genealogy has the names of some the children, and information on James, but no first name for Thomas or his wife.  I see they lack Isaac, but have William and Thomas as two separate children.  We have both these names from other sources as the name of one son named William Thomas.

    Another document seems matches the names of William and Thomas as two individuals, associated wihth James, in a petition concerning land in Alabama in 1819.  These sound like the three brothers mentioned in the above genealogy,.  Others have seemingly compressed William and Thomas into one person as William Thomas or Thomas William.  No firm birth dates for Wililam and Thomas have been determined in sources I have seen.

    Memorial of the inhabitants residents in the Cherokee Country relative to the late order for their removal:

    To the Honorable the Secretary at War, Your petitioners viewing the calamitous situation in which many of our citizens are placed, owing to an order recently described by the agent for Indian affairs of the Cherokee Nation ordering all intruders on their lands to remove by the first day of July 1819. Your petitioners believing that the same indulgence would be extended to them as has been the constant practice to others in similar circumstances, induced them to settle on the lands lately ceded to the United States by the Cherokees on the north side of Tennessee River nor did the order ever appear until late in the month of May of this year, leaving a removal of the citizens impracticable if not impossible.

    Your petitioners are poor but industrious farmers and to deprive them of their hard earnings in the wilderness and thus destroy their labour, where will you petitioners apply for bread for their starving families; this order enforced will involve at least ONE THOUSAND families in total ruins, nor will the evil end here. Your petitioners must subsist somewhere & thus become unwelcome guests to the frontier counties to buy a little support for their starving children. The Indians are not desirous of having the intruders driven from this land North of Tennessee, those being few in numbers, & most of which have taken reservations and are good neighbors, your petitioners therefore knowing the lenity of their government and believing they will take our case into consideration will ever pray:

    Brisco, Thomas
    Brisco, James
