Overview

Captain Isaac Buckingham English, one of the most prominent and highly esteemed citizens of Macon, Georgia, was born in Delaware, on May 2, 1836, and died at this home in Macon on January 22, 1908. He was descended also from Thomas Buckingham who was the founder of the town of Milford, Connecticut, the colony that he arrived to from England in 1639. The Connecticut family has long been prominent in that State, and has furnished it with at least one Governor. The English family also goes back to the Colonial period in Delaware...

In 1860 as a young man of twenty-four he migrated to Macon, Georgia. He was so attached to his adopted state that when the outbreak of the Civil War occurred, he enlisted in the Confederate Army...

At the close of the War
, Capt. I. B. English returned to Macon and became a clerk for the old dry goods firm of J. B. Ross and Company. By 1873 he engaged in a business with his old war comrade, James H. Campbell, under the firm name of Campbell and English, and in 1877 he became a member of the cotton firm of English, Huguenin and Company, Colonel E. D. Huguenin, one of the most prominent men of that day, being his partner. Colonel Huguenin was forced to retire in 1886 for health reasons, and the firm of I. B. English and Company was then formed, consisting of Mr. I. B. English, J. M. Johnston and August Warnke. Later R. W. Johnston purchased the interest of August Warnke, and the firm became English, Johnston and Company.
