RE: Mallisa J Isaacs
Dear Susan,
Please forgive me. I've been going through old messages and can't recall if you received mylast messsage or not. I would prefer to send it to your email address as it is lengthy.Let me rest your mind that she must have been a very gracious and loving person. Of course you know her father was a CivilWar hero dying in Abdersonville Ga. That is the fact given in Fold3.
Malissa's mother remarried Jesse James Smith Sr.
He was a new widower with young children. He raised Abner and Melissa.
I hope to hear from you soon. My surgery date for an eye surgery is coming up in a few weeks so I am trying to get caught up.

Hannah Osgoods
I am trying to sort out the Hannah Osgoods in the Old North Andover Burial Ground. The 3 that show up in the 2013 Kimberly Whitworth inventory and map are relatively easy to find. Two of the other Hannah Osgood records in findagrave seem to be based on vital records rather than markers. For the sixth one, Hannah Belknap Osgood, you have a picture of the grave of a Hannah Osgood (62920231).

A couple of questions.

1. Where in the cemetery is this grave?

2. How do you know it is Hannah Belknap and not Hannah Barker, one of his other wives?

Thank you for your help.

RE: Mallisa J Isaacs
Mallisa's family had quite a story. Her father, George Washington Witt was a Civil War soldier. He was captured by the Confederate Army and taken to Raleigh NC POW camp where he died. I have read recently that he died at Andersonville. I need to check into that. Her mother Serena Margaret Williams was related to my grandfather's first wife. Serena went by Margaret according to the 1880 Census. After George died she married Jesse James Smith my ggg grandfather who also fought in the war. He came home to a wife with TB. She died after 1868. When Margaret married Jesse she had two children by George. William Abner and Malissa.
Margaret and Jesse went on to have three more children of their own. She was 17 years younger than he.
At the same time, Elizabeth Harrison Isaacs was raising three children who lost their father, Samuel I Isaacs at the hand of their uncle. James B was the oldest son.
He grew up to marry Mallisa. Elizabeth had a younger sister named Ellender "Nelly" and she had also married a Samuuel Isaacs and had children. He died of Typhoid fever along with his parents and brother in his parents home. After Nelly lost her husband she married Joseph Smith son of Jesse Smith and step son of Margaret Witt. They had a daughter named Lucinda born in 1876. She had my grandfather Merida Smith on 26 Apr 1895.
On July 22, 1908 Lucinda married William Abner Witt son of Margaret Witt Smith and step brother to her father. He was 18 years older than she. Now I have been doing some digging on William Abner and find that he and his first wife Serena "Rena" Elizabeth Ballard lost a ten year old son, Ebb in 1902. He was divorced when he married Lucinda. Ebb's death may have triggered he and Serena's divorce. Their youngest child was born in 1900. I have taken all of my sources from the census and the "Isaacs Family" site on the internet. I have verified the trial proceedings of Samuel I Isaacs. I also have a copy of the judgment giving Elizabeth Isaacs guardianship of her three young children in Jackson Co KY.
I hope this wasn't too much and not too difficult to understand. Thank you so much for the picture. Even though Mallisa wasn't directly related to me, James B was the nephew of my gg grandmother Nelly Smith and from that I can get some idea of a possible family resemblance.

Mallisa J Isaacs
Dear Susan,
I have a great deal of information on this person. She was the step daughter of my third great grandfather, Jesse James Smith.
I am fascinated by the picture and wondered if that is Mallisa and her two children in the picture.
Thank you for including the pictures.

Hi. I was cruising through Finney records and noticed the year of death for this individual. I suspect it should read 1843, not 1943.

(Otherwise, I hope I'm related to her because I really want those longevity genes!)

Hi Susan,

Do you want me to transfer my memorials that I had created to you? So that we do not have a duplication, that will also get Elizabeth my GGgrandmother added to the family, I think, anyway we can figure it out. I am sure Find A Grave would appreciate this.
I see that a cousin has put a pic. of Francis on both memorials. I will email you to get your hubands family info since it seems we are cousins and give you ours.
