Isaac P. Hellings from History of Bucks County by J. H. Battle: ISAAC P. HELLINGS, retired, P.O. Southampton, is a descendant of an old Bucks county family. His grandfather, Jonathan Hellings, was a farmer in Northampton township. He and his wife Martha had four children: Thomas, John, Elizabeth and Margaret, all now deceased.

The eldest of these children, Thomas, was the father of Isaac P. He was born in 1782 and died January 25, 1844. He was a carpenter by trade, but later in life became a farmer. He was a man of irreproachable habits and character, and had the confidence of his fellow-citizens. He was constable for fifteen years, when that office was an important one, being not only a process-server, but also a collector of all the taxes, township, county and state. His wife was Lucretia, daughter of Captain John Krewson, of this township. She was born December 11, 1788, and died March 31, 1863. Their children were: John K., Martha Jane, Clarissa, Jonathan and Andrew Jackson, all deceased. The last served in the Union army, and was killed in the battle of Murfreesboro, in 1862, when in his thirty-eighth year. Those now surviving are: Isaac P., Rebecca V., wife, of Jacob Evert, of Northampton township; and Thomas J., who is a carpenter in Philadelphia.
