Fourth Generation


11. Elizabeth FLYNN6,14 was born about 1755.

Elizabeth FLYNN and Isaiah GUYMAN were married about 1772.24,29 Isaiah GUYMAN29 was born (date unknown).

Isaiah and Elizabeth were probably married in Surry Co NC during the time Gideon Wright's home was also the Courthouse [1771-1774]. Records from that period are lost. The birthdates of their children were taken from a small book in which Isaiah himself had written their names and dates; this book is now believed lost.

There is tradition that Isaiah's father died at sea while immigrating to America and Isaiah was born shortly after his mother arrived. He was raised by his mother's brothers - their surname was Curry and it is said he went be the name Curry until grown. There are North Carolina pay vouchers for his service in the Revolution.By 1782, he had purchased land in Surry Co. He continued to add to his holdings and deed some to his sons. His last transaction is in Oct of 1819 and he does not appear in the 1820 census.

In 1834, Richard Guymon, by then of Indiana, sold property described as "plantation whereon the Late Isaiah Gymon formerly resided next before his death".
