Overview

Emil T. Miller(son of Emil Fernoy and Mary Montez (Miller) Brock), devoted 2 years of his life in searching out and writing of the definitive history and genealogies of his wing of the wider Brock Family, who in sum number in the tens of thousands both North and South, some of both which fought in the so-called Civil War. This Brock wing which settled in West Georgia, in the time of the writer, were a close-nit, protective, loving bunch of Brocks, and their progeny who read these pages can be intensely proud of their lineage and ancestry. It is a true-blue patriotic, proud ancestry, and a Son of Reubin Brock the 1st fought in the American Revolutionary War for our Independence from England. Our direct ancestor here, James Daniel Brock, fought for the same things, our Southron independence for same reason: Taxation without Representation - i.e., States Rights, and after the invasion of the South they went to arms and fought for their freedom, for their families and farms, and for the right of self determination. They were neither defeted or beaten. They were overwhelmed by the far greater population (numbers of troops), manufacturing capabilities, a standing army and navy at the outset, and a far outnumbered fleet of merchant ships. I have so far found more than 25 of our blood relatives who fought in this useless war. Refer online to http: //www.books-n-sundries.com/32-The%20'Civil'%20War.htm By the time of our present generations since the late 1930's when I was born, we had largely forgotten about this sad chapter in our history and were going about our lives as best we could.

Reviews

An impressive and the most comprehensive history of one of our country's earliest settlers and his descendents; Reubin Brock 1st, whose son fought in the American Revolution against taxation without representation for our independence - as taken up at the time of one of his Grandsons; James Daniel Brock, who was killed during the Civil War at the Battle of Cold Harbor fighting for the South against the very same thing. ...Bryan Malott These 2 books will be invaluable for the research of many hundreds of families in addition to all the thousands of the offspring of the original ancestor, Reubin Brock 1st from Cork, Ireland, who came to the New World on one of the first ships carrying Colonists. ...L. Randle White, Research Analyst


Author Information

Of Irish descent, Tony was born in a little cabin in the rural piney woods of Carroll County in the state of Georgia, attended public schools in Carrollton and Stone Mountain, and attended West Georgia College. Striking out alone for Texas and arriving out of gas but with $7.50 still in his pocket, he has since made his own way in life. He has lived and worked in five states and South America (and is currently living in Southeast Asia). He has traveled extensively in the West and Southwest, in Mexico and Canada, hunting, exploring, and researching historical Courthouse records. Early in life he sacked groceries as most young men do, served honorably in the U. S. Army, was an auxiliary police officer in Houston, and a wiper on an ocean-going freighter. He has worked in a printing office, an aircraft factory, managed a large motel with an exclusive nightclub, and was a heavy equipment operator as well as a journeyman tradesman and foreman who worked his way up in every trade involved in heavy engineering, petro-chemical, and multi-story high-rise building construction projects in Texas and South America. At Austin Tony married a Texas girl, and together they raised three children. He was elected to the Austin, Texas Water District Board of Directors and was asked to serve three terms as president of the Optimist Club as he concurrently was a Little League baseball coach and player agent for three leagues. He became a Southern Baptist and served as a Deacon, Sunday School Superintendent, Teacher, and Youth Director. Tony rose to construction Project Superintendent, to tenure as Vice President of a large company. with projects also in South America where he was also an undercover Government Operative and unlicensed pilot during the time Castro's man Che Guevarra was agitating for the Communists. Later with the Texas State Building Commission, he was the Chief Construction Estimator and Legislative Advisor, co-authored the Texas Handicapped Accessibility law, was the Governor's State Coordinator and Team Leader for all declared disasters occurring in Texas and otherwise worked as an Architect/Engineer designing State buildings and facilities.
