Isaac William Banta
Birth: Sep. 9, 1800
Fayette County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Jul. 16, 1855
Burnet County
Texas, USA

He came to Texas in 1840

From "The Banta Blue Book" by L.W. Banta, "This Isaac was a mechanic or carpenter, living with his wife and 9 children in Princeton, Indiana. His wife Elizabeth, who was of English stock took her name from a second or third cousin, who was Queen Elizabeth of England. He and Eliza longed for the free and open range of Texas, where they could engage in stock raising on the luxurious grasses, then free to all. So in the autumn of 1839, they loaded their household goods and family into huge wagons, and with ox teams, set out for their new "home on the range". This family consisted of nine children and they arrived at Clarksville, Red River County, some time late in the autumn of 1840. Here they stayed for some time, Isaac following his trade as carpenter, then the desire for the "frontier" became stronger, and they set out again, finally locating their headright on what was known as Bullard Creek, near where the little town of Campbell now stands. In 1845, Issac and his son, Henry, assisted in the organization of Hunt county."
