Gives Isaac Sr.'s children and Isaac Jr.'s children Funkhouser, eight generations from Isaac and Catherine (Boyer) of Shenandoah and Augusta Counties of Virginia by Charlotte Cooper Zeutenhorst (Author). p. 8 typescript. THE FUNKHOUSER FAMILY ISAAC FUNKHOUSERand his wife Anna lived on Stoney Creek in Shenandoah County, Virginia. He may have been a son of Jacob, one of the three early immigrant brothers. At the time Isaac wrote his will in 1796, he had already given his son Isaac possession of the Stoney Creek farm. He mentioned this, and the other children listed below.

Other deeds and documents establish the relationship of these children as brothers and sisters, but there is some question that Anna may not have been the mother of the oldest son Isaac, since he married so much earlier than the other children.. He may have been a son of an earlier wife of the first Isaac. Children of the first Isaac Funkhouser:
