I do not know the Cemetery, or location of the cemetery that James Brookshire is buried in. Only that he passed away in Rutherford County, Tennessee, Most likely not long after his will was written.
I place this memorial here, so as to be able to connect the members of my family, that were connected to him.

In the name of God Amen: Be it known that I JAMES BROOKSHIRE of the State of Tennessee and the County of Rutherford, being very sick of body, although in perfect mind and memory, calling to mind the mortality of my last will and testment:

First of all I recommend my soul unto the hands of God, who gave it, and my body to the dust of the earth from whence it came, to be buried at the descression of my executors as they in their wisdom shall think fit. And as touching my worldly estate:

I first recommend and appoint for my funeral expenses to be dischaged, and also all of my just debts paid and satisfied. Then the rest of my estate to remain in the hands of my beloved wife, Martha Brookshire, during her life time or widowhood for her support and the maintenance of my family and schooling of my children. And in case of death with her or marrying, then in either case then the property with my land to fall to my two youngest children; William and Joseph Brookshire, to be and remain as their property forever. I do nominate and by these presents apart and consititute my beloved friend Thomas ZBrown, George Uselton ESQ, and Thomas Ashby, to be my executors, to this my last will and testament.

Witness my hand and seal 16th of April 1813
