I am quite familiar with Isaac Redding--his other daughter Abi married Henley Roberts. I am looking for information about when Abi died and the maiden name and references for Isaac Redding's wife Milly.

I am curious whether this Isaac Redding is the brother of Joseph Redding who preached in Kentucky in those days. I am fairly convinced he is but I could be proven wrong.

Joseph Redding came from the Turkey Creek Baptist church in South Carolina and before that Broad Run in Fauquier County, VA. I have tracked his career, but would like to know more about Isaac. Woodford county records burned, but it is likely you will find traces of the Vincent family in Baptist records such as they are, since Isaac and Milly were apparently quite strict, judging from the marriage bond/permission of Abi and Henley Roberts. I think I may be able to find something about them and I will try. The Baptist History Homepage has a lot of transcribed histories which may provide a clue for you.

My interest is Sally Roberts (sister of Henley) who married Jeremiah Plough in Woodford in 1793. I still have not proven her parentage. They are my ancestors.
