Nathaniel and Isaac Tobey/Tobin
Relationship: Not documented, current theory is that they were brothers
Hunterdon Co., New Jersey; Loudoun Co. and Culpeper Co., Virginia; Guernsey Co., Ohio

The first record of this family is the 23 Jun 1750 birth of Isaac Tobin at Hunterdon Co., New Jersey, reported by him in an 1833 application for a pension for his Revolutionary War service. Originally listed their last name as Tobey, first began using the Tobin name in Hunterdon Co., New Jersey, in 1789. In the 1790s Nathaniel and Isaac moved to Loudoun Co., Virginia. Nathaniel moved to Culpeper Co., Virginia, in 1797 or 1798, where he apparently died in 1831 or 1832. Isaac followed Nathaniel to Culpeper County during the first decade of the 1800s. About the year 1830 he moved to Guernsey Co., Ohio, where he apparently died in 1836.

Isaac at age 25 was described as 5 feet, 5 inches high, slim built, much pitted with smallpox, and a sober looking fellow.

Nathaniel Tobin (wife's name not known)
(1740-50 - 1831/2)


i. Nathan (no known male descendants)
ii. Jonathan (no known male descendants)
iii. Nancy
iv. Rebecca
v. Isaac
vi. Abraham

No male descendant of this family has yet had his DNA tested.

Isaac and Phebe (Thomson) Tobin


i. Nathaniel
ii. John
iii. William
iv. Mary
v. Rachel

One male descendant of Isaac's son Nathaniel (25 markers) and one male descendant of Isaac's son John (12 markers) have had their DNA tested. They were a 12/12 marker match.

I am still working on posting some of the information I have on these families but I am hoping to find out the relationships among our families and break through our brick walls.
