In Reply to: ISON - Garrard Co., KY & Amherst Co., VA by Susan of 846

ISON FAMILIES IN KENTUCKY
Researched in 1978 by Alma Ray Sanders Ison, Lexington Rd, Rt. 4, Harrodsburg, KY 40330 (current address unknown).

ISON MEN FOUND IN GARRARD CO., KY IN THE 1810 CENSUS

Charles Ison, Sr.       age over 45 with wife over 45
William Ison              age 26 to 45 with wife and family
John Ison              age 26 to 45 with wife and family
James Ison              age 26 to 45 with wife and family
(Note: Since these are the only persons named Ison in Garrard Co. in the 1810, this is very good circumstantial evidence that Charles is the father and the others are sons.)

NO WILL OR SETTLEMENT FOUND FOR CHARLES OR PEGGY ISON IN GARRARD CO., BUT TAX LISTS INDICATE DATE OF CHARLES' DEATH

GARRARD COUNTY TAX LISTS FOR 1821, 1822, 1823, 1824, 1825 AND 1826 SHOW:
Charles Ison, Sr.        pays tax on 100 acres of land on DICKS RIVER

GARRARD COUNTY TAX LIST FOR 1827 SHOWS:
Peggy Ison              pays tax on 100 acres of land on DICKS RIVER
                     (This indicates death of Charles in 1826/1827)

GARRARD COUNTY DEED BOOK A - PAGE 387
16 August 1802
Charles Ison and Peggy his wife of Garrard Co. convey to Francis Stephens of Pulaski Co., 122 acres of land in AMHERST CO., VA for the sum of 60 pounds current money. Boundaries: Walter Power and Alexander Baggs Signatures: Charles Ison and Peggy Ison

GARRARD COUNTY DEED BOOK N - PAGE 376
2 September 1839
James Ison, Sr. - John Ison, Sr. - William Ison, Sr. and Elizabeth his wife - Charles Ison, of Garrard Co., KY to Richard B. Jennings, 50 A. on DICKS RIVER for $212.50. Boundaries: Benjamin Wilds - Rocky Fork of Dicks River - Charles N. Ison
(Note: This deed sounds quite interesting! Could it be heirs of Charles and Peggy selling property? I must investigate further.)

GARRARD COUNTY DEED BOOK O - PAGE 216
5 August 1841
William Ison and Elizabeth his wife of Cooper Co., MO to John Ison, Sr. of Garrard Co., KY 50 acres on DICKS RIVER for $285.50. Boundaries: Charles Ison, Sr. - Cliffs of Dicks River - Rocky Fork Ck. (This deed suggests that William and Elizabeth Compton Ison may have moved away from Garrard Co . . .after 40 years of marriage, possibly with some of their children.)
