Sarah A. "Sally" HARRISON and Elisha ISAACS were married on 4 November 1852 in Estill County, Kentucky. Elisha ISAACS, son of Godfrey S. ISAACS and Elizabeth "Betsey" HOWARD, was born on 27 March 1827 in Kentucky. He died on 11 November 1904 at the age of 77 in Jackson County, Kentucky.

Elisha had possibly been married before he married Sally Harrison in 1852. The 1860 census shows him with a probable son, Patton, age 12, or born 1848. Later this son seems to be named Nathan...
In 1850, Elisha doesn't appear with a wife and son. Was this a child of Sally's?

Said to be in Owsley Co, 1850, then Jackson Co 1860-1900.
The 1850 Cemetery, Owsley, Hh 340, has Elisha Isaacs, age 26, living with Samuel Brandenberg and family as a laborer.

Said to be buried Lakes Cemetery (Wind Cave Cemetery) behind Wind Cave Church, Jackson Co, KY. Many burials are listed twice on FindAGrave.

Sarah A. "Sally" HARRISON and Elisha ISAACS had the following children:



Nathan ISAACS was born on 28 March 1848 in Kentucky. He died after 1870 at the age of 22.

Maybe not Sally Harrison's child. They didn't marry until 1852. But Elisha in 1850 seems to have been a single man. I have not found any such child in 1850.

There is a son of Elisha & Sally listed on FindAGrave (they didn't marry until 1852) - b. 28 Mar 1848, Jackson Co, death unknown, buried Wind Cave Cemetery where Elisha and Sally are buried. His name is listed as Nathan H. Isaacs. The 1860 & 1870 Census does have a Nathan, age 12 and then 22, in the household. Since he is five years older than his nearest sibling, it would appear that Elisha may have had a brief earlier marriage.
