County was named after Queen Isabella. I believe the township of Isabella was named after the first child born in the township.

Surnames: Hursh
One of the first children born in the township was my great great aunt, Isabella Hursh Dodds, born in 1855. She was the daughter of John Myres Hursh and Elizabeth Brown Hursh. Family tradition states that she was named after the county that was named after Queen Isabella.
