From Kim:

George (bequeathed to wife Mary)
Dinah (bequeathed to son Samuel, Jr.)
Phillis (beq to son William)
Peter (beq to daughter Rachel Rogers)

Final settlement of Samuel Brockman's Will at wife Mary's death, 15 Jan 1776:
Enslaved persons:

Dinah (Samuel, Jr.)
Molley (John Webb)
Fan (Samuel, Jr.)

In Samuel Brockman, Sr's will (1762) he mentions a slave named Hercules, who he bequeaths to daughter Sarah Henderson. Hercules does not appear on the 1766 inventory, however.
