Isom Brinkley from North Carolina

+6 votes
I have an obiturary for William Brinkley from The Evening Republican dated September 11, 1897 from my grandfather.  It states that William was born 3/2/1819 in Orange County, North Carolina to Isom and Magdalena (Garritt).  I cannot find any information on Isom or Magdalena.  I find an Isham, but not as William's father or anything with Magdalena.  Could anyone help with this?

Julie, welcome to G2G.

I suspect that you have more information than a lot of other people. I took a look at Ancestry. There are only four family trees listed for your William (by the dates) and none of them has any parents listed, but they do have him married to Sara Lana Houser. Hopefully that's the wife you have. None of the trees has sourcing for this marriage.

This might be him with a second wife. but I'm not guaranteeing it. but Isom is not a common name

Gee Chris, This doesn't seem quite right. I don't think Parents born 1878 and 1882 belong to someone born in 1819, but it certainly is an interesting coincidence of names.
I thought I would just throw it out there because there was a Ison? Isom?

Sorry I did not read the question better.


Isom Brinklie
Birth:  dd mm 1797
Marriage:  date - Orange, North Carolina

That one (birth 1797) looks like the one in the 1850 census, I cited above.
Thanks for your help.  I'll follow-up on that.
