91. Isaac MABRY34,37,57,67 was born about 1798.66 He died in 1886 at the age of 88 in Patrick County, Virginia.4,66

An extremely inaccurate account of the family of Jefferson, son of "Isaiah" and Susannah Dalton Mabry, lists two additional daughters for the family - a Sally [probably Sarah] and Nellie [Eleanor]. This is in FLOYD COUNTY, A HISTORY OF ITS PEOPLE AND PLACES, by Dr. Amos D. Wood.

1820 Grayson Co Census, p.50. Isaac Mayberry. 1m 16-26, 1f -10, 1f 16-26
[There is a female child born before 1820, not listed with the children as given]

1840 Grayson Co Census, p.292. Isaac Maby. 1m -5 [Martin], 2m 5-10 [Jefferson & Alfred], 1m 10-15 [William], 1m 15-20 [Joshua], 1m 40-50 [Isaac, age 42]. 1f -5 [Amelia], 1f 10-15, 1f 15-20, 1f 20-30 1f 40-50 [Susannah?]
There are certainly more children indicated than we have names for, particularly daughters. Obviously several of Isaac's children have not been identified. It's also not known exactly when he married some of the later wives so some of these could be stepchildren.

1850, Carroll Co Census, Household 326. Isaac Maybry age 52, Farmer. Jane age 26. Children [Isaac's by Susannah Dalton] Alfred age 17, Martin 14, Amelia 12, and Elizabeth age 10. Annice McGrady, age 7 also lived there - child of Jane's.

In 1860, Isaac was age 62, wife Jane 34. Living with them was Elizabeth 17, and Julia Ann S. age 1. [I have no idea if this was a child by Jane or a grandchild. She wasn't in the household in 1870. However in 1870 she appeared to still be living with Elisabeth.]

1870, Laurel Fork Dist, Hillsville P.O., Household 275. Isaac 72, Jane 46. Ede Goad age 22 was living with them, doing Housekeeping.
Household 276. Elisabeth Mabry, age 26, Julia A 11 and Cleopatra age 2. Elisabeth seems to be having illegitimate daughters.

1880 Census. Isaac Sr. was now age 82. Wife Jane 56.

FLOYD COUNTY, A HISTORY OF ITS PEOPLE AND PLACES, by Dr. Amos D. Wood, gives an highly inaccurate account of his family. States that his parents were "Isaiah" and Susannah Dalton Mabry. The article states that all of the children of Isaac Mabry lived in Carroll County except for Jefferson, who moved to Floyd County in 1851 settling just outside Willis. He volunteered at the outbreak of the Civil War but was rejected because of a disability and was later detailed as a shoemaker.
