ISBELL FAMILY GENEALOGY - Biography:
*********************************
The 'Honorable' Zachariah Isbell was one of the 13 commissioners called "The Immortal 13 Founders of Tennessee".
Zachariah was the first sheriff and magistrate of Bedford County, Virginia.
He helped to lay out the town of New London, the first county seat of Bedford County.
He was a captain in the French & Indian War, and was granted tracts of land in Camden District, South Carolina for service in 1754. There, he moved to this plantation and lived quietly for 20 years until the Revolution disrupted his family life.
He was a member of the Anglican Church early in life and evidenced neutral or Tory sympathies toward Britain, thus, he moved to Washington County where he was again a magistrate judge. There, he was appointed as one of the 13 commissioners appointed to for the Watauga Settlement which became the State of Tennesse.
In 1772 he served on the first court in Tennessee.
On 25 March 1775, he witnessed a land lease signed by several Cherokee chiefs making up a large part of Washington County. [The huge old tree under which the deed was signed is still there].
In 1778 he served on first court in Washington County.
Zachariah, and his son, Zachariah Jr., both served in the government of Watauga Association and both fought the British in the Battle of King's Mountain in 1780.
He is believed to be buried in a lost grave
at Cherokee Baptist Church Cemetery near Jonesboro in Washington County, Tennessee.
