If you use the spelling Mat Isbell you can find
them.On the 1900 census Jackson County,the Martha
Jeffreys just above on the same page is Sarah Yorks
sister Martha married to Elonzo Jeffreys. The Kizner
kids listed there is actuallly hers from marriage to
Daniel Kizner.I believe I saw some where that Mat is
the son of Levi Isbell. There where 2 Levi's one
is son one is father. Both where preachers. They were
also in Madison and Marshall county.I cant remember
all thatI read of them.I am still stuck on the Yorks.
They are listed on rootsweb too.
Hope this helps.
