|Marian Ritchie||Robert Isbell Sr. born @1815|
Hi again Ray,
Well as you know I'm still looking other places to find concrete information/proof regarding my direct line regarding the Isbell's.
I know what other researchers have and what I have. A ton of it does not jell. Anyway, I've never been able to find my Robert Isbell Sr. who was born around 1815 in a 1850 census. I have them in 1860 in Stoddard Missouri with the children and before his wife dies. I have him in the 1870 census.
Today while once again grasping for straws I ran across a Robert H. Isbell born around 1817 in Georgia. With a wife Elizabeth who would have been born around 1825 in Alabama. Both dates very close to mine.
It shows them with the following children.
Jas. 7 born in Tennessee.
Russell 5 born in Mississippi(don't have a clue)
John M. 1 born in Mississippi.
Nancy "Lane. 50. (This would be about the right age for Elizabeth's mother...who was Nancy Morris, who married a LOVE.
Do you know which family this is and who these people are and where they fall into the Isbell family????
Your the only person I could think of that might tell me exactly who they are.
I don't have all my Isbell notes and books here in the house so it's difficult for me to find how this family fits in with others.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
|Marian Ritchie||William R. Isbell|
I wanted to thank you for adding the newspaper article to my memorial page for Dr. William R. Isbell.
I had been told the story all my life that he had been to see a patient and had just got home with his horse and buggy. Sat down at the table to eat. His family members were begging him to come to the storm cellar. According to family stories he said "I'm tired and I'm going to sit here and eat if the storm blows me away".
Now I have proof that the story is pretty accurate.
Thanks for linking it to William Isbell's memorial.
I for one appreciate all you are doing for Find A Grave and our Isbell ancestors and their other lineage.

Ray, you're more than welcome to add pictures to any memorial I have created - it only adds to the memorial especially cool ones like you added.

I guess you could say that Willis is my cousin. Tilghman is my Great-great-great Granddad...

Do you by chance have any images of Mr Newman's maternal grandfather Tilghman Willis Flynt of Griffin?

I have connected Mary Elizabeth to her parents as you requested. Thank you for providing me with the information.
Could you please tell me if your WIER's are linked to any of the Joseph N.; Richard F.; of Maryland. My mother's grandmother was a Wier, who married a Dawson of Anne Arundel County,MD. God Bless and have a great day! Ruth Dawson-Crawford

Thank you so much for the links on his Mom & Dad. I have added them to his memorial and I agree the links are so helpful. Have a good rest of the day.
|Scott Plummer||Harry Clow Jr|
I did take photos of the markers for Harry Clow Jr and Leonore. Did you want to set up photo requests?
There were also some Clows with the Hamill family nearby... I will set up memorials for them when I get a chance. Not sure how they fit in with your Clows.
