Hi, I am beginning to work on my Ison ancestors beyond Archibald Ison and wife Mary Gilliam. Archibald's parents were Charles and Elizabeth Ison of Scott County, Virginia. I am beginning to think that the Isaac Ison/Isom who married Rebecca A. (Ingram?) was the son of Charles Ison and wife Elizabeth and not the one married to Charity Ingram. I think the confusion has happened because the two Isaac Isons were combined and to compensate the wife became Charity Rebecca Ingram. I know they are two different Isaacs because one lived in Scott County, Virginia in 1850 and one in Perry County, Kentucky in 1850. The Scott County, Virginia Isaac Ison was born abt 1798 is the one married to Charity and is listed with children Mahala and Jonathan. The Isaac Ison in Perry County, Kentucky was born abt. 1782 and listed with Rebecca and children Isaac, Ustley and Scott. Common sense would tell me the Isaac Ison born 1782 is a better fit for Charles and Elizabeth Ison age wise since Charles Ison was born abt. 1744. I don't know it's true, but think so. I have just about pulled my hair out trying to make sense of all the Ison info on the internet.
