I descend from the Isham Blake in Fayetteville, NC but do have this information on the Isham Blake in Montgomery Co., NC. The two were cousins a few times removed.

Isham/Isom Flax/Flack Blake was born March 1829. Isham enlisted in the Confederate Army as a private in Co. K 34th Regt on September 9, 1861. In May 1863 he deserted. On July 16, 1863 he married Mary "Polly" Batten, born ca. 1825 and died about 1890. (Polly was married previously to Squire James Blake, born April 12, 1817 and died ca. July 1857.) He became quite wealthy, owning 2200 acres of land. At the end of the Civil War he was almost broke. He had some land and very little money.

Co. K, 34th Regiment N.C. Troops

Blake, Isham F., Private
Born in Montgomery County where he resided as a farmer prior to enlisting in Montgomery County at age 33, September 9, 1861. Deserted on May 20, 1863.

This company, known as the "Montgomery Boys," was raised in Montgomery County and was enlisted at Troy on September 9, 1861. It was mustered into state service at Camp Fisher, at High Point, on October 25, 1861, and was assigned to the 34th Regiment N.C. Troops as Company K.

I also have the children of the Isham Blake of Montgomery Co., NC.
