Do you have dates of birth, death, etc. for William or
Isaac? Also critical, do you know if William or Isaac
lived in Bertie(formerly Chowan) or Martin (formerly
Tyrell) before locating in the Pitt Craven area? I
desend from William of Tyrell/Martin Co, through his
son Thomas. Thomas had brothers named Isaac, Samuel,
I had been working on the Gardnerville/Swift Creek
Gardner line to try to back up to the Gardners of
Bertie/Martin. Asa was as far back as I had gotten.
Your Isaac is very interesting to me.
