I'm looking for info Isaac Pope (approx 1890s-1970s). In particular, I'm searching for a connection between Isaac and Christian Pope 1808-1891. On the 1887 landowners map, Christian owned many acres of land along 600N from east of Fortville Pike, to about 1/2 mile east of 200W. By the 1930s map, some of the land has changed ownership to Christian's son Charles and some grandchildren, but also Isaac owns parts of Christian's land as well has that of Christian's nephews at 200W/500S.
How did Isaac come to own that land? Was he a descendant of Christian or one of his brothers? Who were his parents? Does he have any family in the area? His wife's name was Wiley. Is her family still here?
I understand that Isaac had no children, but if there are any other relatives who can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
