Information that is sourced includes information from a book called "A History of Monroe County, West Virginia", 1916, written by Oren F. Morten. On page 418 he lists information about Isaac and Elizabeth and says they were from Bucks Co., Pennsylvania. Probably meant Berks? He tells that after the Revolution that Isaac and Elizabeth relocated to Rehoboth. Could this be Isaac's bounty land in The New River Country?

John m) Sarah Green
Margaret m) Bartholomew Ramsey (memorial #20817533)
