Pinny McKinney, If you are interested in persuing this further, contact me at for exchange of information as well as taking this family forward and backward several generations. Will be very happy to eaxchange information and views with you. Jim Woolbright

(1) 1 Joseph 1223 ISENHOUR [Icenhour] 1214
Birth: 1815, Caldwell Co. N. C.
Death: >1880, Watauga Co. N. C.
Father: Phillip 1214 ISENHOUR [ICENHOUR] 1211 (1781-1835)
Mother: Mary (1793-1859)

S/o 1214 Philip & Mary Isenhour. Lived near Sibby's father in Caldwell Co. till 1880 when he moved with most of his family to Watagua Co. N. C. where he has several descendants.

Spouse: Lettie [Louella] Baker
Birth: ca 1817, Ashe Co. N. C.
Death: ca 1870
Marr: 12 Oct 1837, Wilkes Co. N. C.
Lettie was previously married to a Mr. Coffee Moved to Watauga Co. N. C. about 1880 as did Elizabeth Isenhour, b. 1851.
Second spouses: Syble Barnes "Sibby " Wyatt Coffey
Research: Rhonda Sipes Sherrill <>

Children: Thomas C. (1839-)
Anna "Annie" (1840-1922)
Willian Wilson "Wilsie" 1268 (1842-1913)
Joseph C. (1844-1927)
Mary Caroline (1847-)
Genelia Catherine (1848-1931)
James Jefferson "JEFF" (1849-1929)
Rebecca Elizabeth (1852-)
Sarah Jane (1853-)

(2) 1.4 Joseph C. ISENHOUR
Birth: 11 Jun 1844
Death: 2 Aug 1927, Catawba Co, N. C.

Notes: James Sigmon has his birthplace as Catawba Co. but if he is, in fact, a son of Joseph & Lettie Isenhour, it is more likely Caldwell Co. and he moved to Catawba Co. as an adult. ?
In some records, carried as James/Joseph Jefferson ISENHOWER [ISENHOUR]. While there is no clear cut definative record at this time, a family line does existance that suggests that, in fact, Joseph Isenhour was a seperate enity and his birthdate fits the space. {please appreciate this is no a hard and fast finding and will be susstantiated sometime in the future, hopefully) ...............Jim Woolbright

Research: Rhonda Sipes Sherrill <> There is a Joe Cefus(?) Isenhour buried in Catawba, possibly Catawba City?

Spouse: Catherine Lucinda 'Cindy' Hefner
Birth: 7 Jun 1856
Death: 15 Sep 1939, Catawba Co. N. C.
Marr: 20 Dec 1877, Catawba Co, NC.

Under the 1880 Catawba, N.C. Census: Jas. Icenhour, Age 30 ; Cenda Icenhour, Age 24; George W., Age 1 & Avry A., Age 1 mth. This is at odds with James Jefferson's wife being Goula Irene Fowler and overlap in time of children of entirely different names and birthdates (sic)?

Children: George W. (1878-)
Avery (1879-)
Bertha Ellen (1881-1952)
Samuel (1882-)
Orphelia Mahala (1886-1986)
Reuben (1888-)
Eliza (1891-)
Jane (1892-)

(2) 1.7 James Jefferson "JEFF" ISENHOWER [ISENHOUR]
Birth: 1 Jul 1849, Caldwell Co. N. C. (James/ Joseph in some records)
Death: 11 Feb 1929, N.. C.
Occ: S/o 1223 Joseph & Lettie Isenhour

His father and grandfather used ISENHOUR, but Jeff's family reverted bach to the older usage.of ISENHOWER.
In some Records he is James/Joseph Jefferson which suggests confusion with possible previously un-connected brother, Joseph C. Isenhour (sic.)

In some records, carried as James/Joseph Jefferson ISENHOWER [ISENHOUR]. He is mostly likely, just plain James Jefferson and had another brother, Josesph C. Isenhour (see above )
