Ancestors of William Stanley Tucker 1890-1944

Isbell of Altarnun

The Isbells of Fowey are definitely in this tree.† The Isbells of Altarnun may well be but I only have one source that says that George Isbell (Abt. 1770-1852) is the son of John Isbell (below).† This is a hand written family tree, handed down to a member of the family.† While I obviously have no reason to doubt this, it would be nice to have some confirmation.
