I have been reseaching the Isaac Gano that you are referring to for the last couple of years. (I realize that the post is a decade old but hopefully this might help others.) I started with the following book:

(The book is in the public domain and can be downloaded for free at

Ira J. Gano, devoting his attention to general farming in Yakima county, was born in Patterson, Hardin county, Ohio, February 6, 1877, a son of James H. and Rhoda M. (Gardner) Gano. The father was a native of Champaign county, Ohio, born December 3, 1837, and was a son of Isaac and Nancy Jane (Hogg) Gano, the former a native of Berkeley county. West Virginia, and the latter of Clark county, Ohio. The Gano family is of French lineage and was established on American soil during early colonial days. The ancestral line is traced back through Isaac Gano to Daniel Gano, who served in the Revolutionary war, enlisting from Virginia. He was a valiant adherent of the cause of the colonies and rendered active aid in the cause of independence. He passed away in Virginia at the age of sixty years. His son Isaac afterward removed to Ohio in young manhood and there spent his remaining days. He was a miller by trade and followed that pursuit in early manhood, while later he took up the occupation of farming.

I then contacted the Berkeley Historical Society. The only Isaac Gano they could find was in the will of Daniel Gano who was married to Margaret (Duckworth most likely). Daniel did not serve in in the Revolution but his father James was in the New Jersey Miltia for a short time. If the book excerpt from above can be trusted then the following is Isaac's lineage:
