I am a descendant of James Isom, too and I would love to know where you found his War of 1812 records!!!
Thank you!

I spent about an hour or so at the Confederate Cemetery in Fayetteville, Arkansas looking for the name of your ancestor. Unfortunately, I did not find many graves with any markings whatsoever.

The cemetery is set up around the large statue shown in the pictures already on the site. Each side of the statue represents one of four states (Tenn, Missouri, Ark, Louisiana) and the corresponding graves for each state stem out in the (assumably) appropriate direction.

The entire cemetery is in horrid repair with some graves completely open to the air. Many sunken spots, broken headstones, and felled trees in and around the graves.

The graves are unmarked with the exception of one or two from each state, usually the Generals.

Across the street from the main cemetery is another two cemeteries where larger stones are placed with broken wrought iron fencing surrounding each. The names of these folks are the ones listed in the interments for the cemetery on the main page. Most stones have been broken over and are in pieces or missing entirely.

It is a very, very sad state of conditions.

I have taken a dozen or so random photos of the cemetery and would like to send them to you via email. Please advise if you would like this.

Sorry I could not be the bearer of better news, but every stone with any engraving was checked (so long as I could get to them).
