Isaac Sherrill was a son of William J. Sherrill, Jr and Isabell Lowrance. His burial is listed in the Caldwell County, NC Cemeteries, Volume 1, Durham-Sherrill Cemetery pages 85 & 86. His grandparents were Captain William Sherrill from Lancaster County, PA, and Agnes White of Agusta, Virginia. They died in Rowan County, NC. Isaac and his first wife Mabel Durham had 8 children (6 daughters & 2 sons). One daughter Celia Sherrill married Elihu Watson. Other children were; Elizabeth, Susanah, Elenor, Mabel, Isabel, John D, and William. Mabel must have died young as Isaac later married Mary Ann Robinson and they had five children, one of which was Mary Sherrill who married Solomon Greene. Isaac & Mabel lived in the Zack's Fork area of Caldwell County. Both Mabel and Mary Sherrill's pictures look Cherokee. As they were from different mothers, it was thought that their father Isaac Sherrill may had a Cherokee ancestor. No proof of Cherokee blood has been found.
