Yes, you are correct Myra. Re-reading my post, I meant to say that the
assumption that I have seen that this Ann Robins is a second wife of Col.
Elijah seems to me to be in error because Sarah w/o Col. Elijah was still alive
The marriage between Elijah Isaacs, Jr. and Ann Robins in Wilkes Co., NC took
place in 1780. I have a copy of the marriage bond/license and it does appear
to be Ann, not Amy. Bondsman was a Nathan Robins, from memory. Will look for
this document to see if anything else of value.
I believe that you are also correct that it doesn't necessarily mean that this
is the s/o Col. Elijah Isaacs.
I have suspected that this Elijah Isaacs, Jr. might have connection to my
Richard Isaacs, I, b c 1765, as perhaps a brother. Noting too, that it is
reported that the spouse of Richard was also a Robins (still not proven but we
do know that her first name is Elenor) in the book A History of Watauga County,
NC. I would like to follow up more on this Elijah and possibilities for him a
later. I think that there should be several possibilities for his parentage.
If a Samuel, not Samuel, the son of Col. Elijah, as he would not be old
would figure this Elijah's birthdate to be c1760.
Will follow up on this later. I'm loving the discussions.
