"He was a drummer in the 3rd Maryland Regiment in the American Revolutionary War. He was said to have been paid (possibly by land) for service in the war in 1784 at Martin Co., NC. Between May 26, 1800 and 1804 he served as Sheriff of Edgecombe Co., NC. He lived after 1804 in Hancock Co., GA.
Later Isaac and family moved to Jasper Co., GA, then to an area named Hillsboro, GA after his family, and finally to the Cumberland Mountains in TN; he married LUCINDA WALLACE, (believed to be originally from Scotland or Welsh/Irish descent) in Martin Co, NC in 1772 and had fourteen children. Lucinda "Lucy" Wallace, born 1746 St. Mary's Co., MD, was the daughter of Adam Wallace and an unknown mother. Lucinda died Sept. 23, 1798 in NC.
Isaac married second, Lydia White Jones Hill, born 1759 Anson Co., NC, the widow of Hugh Jones and William Hill respectively, around 1810 in Hancock Co., GA; Lydia brought two daughters by Wm. Hill to the union, Eliza b. 1801, and Louvisa b. 1802. Isaac died July 29, 1825 at Warren Co., TN, at age 77. Sometime after Isaac's death, Lydia returned to GA where she died June 12, 1838. There were no children from Isaac and Lydia's union.
Isaac is buried on Cumberland Plateau, Warren Co., TN and his marked grave is in the forest near his home/stagecoach inn (Old Hill Tavern on Hill's Trace) and orchards. He moved to TN after his son Henry J.A. Hill. He lived in the valley near Hill's Creek, later moving to the Cumberland Plateau. It is said he took older slaves and Indians so they might "retire."
