Do you have any information on parentage for Isaac Forbes? I'm researching Isaac Gallops and I know his family was associated with the Forbes family in the 1750's.

I have as the parents of Isaac Forbes Bailey Forbes and Mary Rogers, both born about 1810. Isaac(b.about 1842) had a brother Nathaniel (b. about 1833).This family is listed in the 1850 Currituck County, NC census. Based on the 1850 censuses, I am using the best information I can find to state that Isaac was the Confederate soldier I have mentioned. Nathaniel is the only Forbes by that name I can find in this area for that time.
I wish I could be of more help but that is all I have for Isaac. I do have more Forbes information if it will be helpful.

Would you possibly know who he married and if their were any children.
I am trying to find info on a Lydia Elvenia Forbes born about 1853 died about 1937. This Forbes family I have been told were originally from the Camden, Posquotank County of NC.
Thanks, Linda

I do not have the name of Isaac's wife. He was the son of Bailey Forbes (b.abt1810) and Mary Rogers (b.abt1810). There is a Lydia Forbes listed as 5 years old in the 1860 Camden County census. Her parents are Thomas 36, Chisline 35 and siblings Mary 7, Martha 4, and Thomas 2. This family does not seem to appear in the 1870 Camden County census.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

There was and Isaac T Forbes 1828-1863 who married Naimbana Gallop 1834-1904.

The couple were from Camden/Currituck Cos. and moved to Ogle Co, IL. Info shows that they had 8 children.

A bit late on this thread - I know. Isaac/Naimbana are my great-great grandparents. I have the Isaac/Naimbana Forbes family bible dated mid-1850's.

(1) The bible outlines a family tree that goes back 3 generations prior on both sides!
(2) I have been to the Washington Grove grave site and the Isaac Forbes who married Naimbana died in 1863. I suspect there are two different Isaac Forbes in play here - probably related.
(3) Another more controversial bit of information is that Naimbana is an African name - and it is not clear from descriptions (even Hodges' will available online) that Naimbana's mother is married to Hodges - perhaps there is another "Mary".

My big question is: Did Isaac T Forbes marry Hodges Gallop's illegitimate daughter with an African name? Is that why this branch traveled to IL? etc....
