5.  SAMUEL4 ISAACS (ELIJAH3, SAMUEL2, SAMUAL1) (Source: (1) DAR Membership # 278 734 Maud Isaac., (2) South Carolina Archives order # 3374, AA 3957 1/2 pp li B # 19 Contingent Account. Papers by Legislature Nov. 23, 1795.) was born 1759 in Fredrick County  Virginia., and died 1844 in Lincoln County Tenn.  He married MARY WALLACE 1774 in South Carolina.  She was born 1754 in Fredrick County  Virginia., and died 1838 in Lincoln County Tenn.

Notes for SAMUEL ISAACS:

  Served in South Carolina Line under "MARION AT BATTLE OF COWPENS" during the American Revolution as Spy for North and South Carolina.  Also served under his father Col. Elijah Isaacs in North Carolina.

   See South Carolina Archives

   Order # 3374 AA 3957 1/2 pp Li #19 Contingent Account. papers by legislature Nov 23, 1795.
  He first joined the American Army as a private in District 96 in S. C. in Sept. 1776.  The year before he married and had twin sons born Feb. 11, 1775.  He named the twins Elijah and Elisha.  He stated that he served for two years as a spy for the American Army against the Indians.  He served several three-month terms in both the N.C. and S.C. militia.  He served under his father at least one term.  He was discharged by General McDowell at Quaker Meadows in Burke Co., N.C.
  In 1788 he lived in Franklin CO. Ga.  It was here the Indians attacked his home and destroyed everything.  His wife and children escaped without harm.

The correct birth year is in question war records showing 1759, family records show 1754. Since he had twin boys in 1775, the 1754 birth year would be more logical, perhaps the War Dept mistook the 4 for a 9 ?

          ______________
     G.G. Isaacs, a prominent lawyer
of Harlan county and well-known
in Middlesboro, died here at the
Kings Daughters Hospital of appen-
dicitis last Friday morning at one
o'clock.  Mr. Isaacs was brought
from Harlan to Middlesboro on the
Thursday evening train and an op-

that evening, but proved unsuccess-
ful,  he  was  too  far  gone  to  re-
cover.
   Before the operation Mr. Isaacs
was united in marriage with Miss
Minnie Sizemore of Middlesboro,
by Rev. J. V. Logan.  Miss Size-
more had been for some time his
stenographer.
   The deceased was a native of
Russell county, Virginia.  The re-
mains were taken to Castlewood,
Va., for burial, accompanied by a
number of friends.
