92. Isaac MABRY34,38,49,59 was born about 1798.58 He died in 1886 at the age of 88 in Patrick County, Virginia.4,58

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 (Mary), 1f 15-20 (Sarah, Olive or Eleanor - none were yet married), 1f 20-30 (???) 1f 40-50 [Susannah?]


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.

Isaac MABRY and Susannah DALTON were married about 1818.34,58 Susannah DALTON4,58, daughter of John DALTON and Eleanor EDWARDS, was born (date unknown).

Susannah was the daughter of John & Eleanor Dalton.
Another account states that she was the daughter of William Dalton & Elizabeth Sturman.

One database says:
It is believed she is Susannah Dalton. She has been listed as possibly the daughter of William and Elizabeth Sturman Dalton. Ora Belle Mayberry McColman in her book on the Mabry family suggests the possibility that she is the daughter of John Bass and Eleanor Edwards Dalton making her sister to Nancy who married John Wesley Mabry. There are land deeds between members of these families making this a strong possibility.

Isaac MABRY and Susannah DALTON had the following children:

Joshua MABRY49,55,58,60 was born in 1821.58

Joshua married Mary "Polly" Nester in 1841. Ancestry.com and FamilySearch note a marriage for Joshua Mabry to Polly Horton, 3 Feb 1841, Grayson Co, VA but no image is provided. This may very well be a bad transcription of her surname - one of the daughters does indeed marry a Horton. Examination of the original would be necessary to be sure of Joshua's wife's surname.

1850. Joshua Maybry, age 29, Wheelwright. Polly 24. Susan 4, and James J. 2.

In the 1860 census is Joshua age 38, Wheelwright. Mary age 31. Children: Susanna age 15, James J. 13, Sarah J. 11, Louisa R. 9, LeGrand 7, and Milly E. age 1.

"He was a captain in the Civil War and had a blacksmith shop east of Hillsville." (Alderman, 1850 Census: Annotated, p.6)
According to John Perry Alderman, "Joshua Mabry was a volunteer, joining September 15, 1861 at Dugspur. He served with the company (G, 54th Virginia Infantry) for nearly a year, but was discharged for a long ailment on August 15, 1862. Later he was in the 4th Virginia Reserves and was commissioned Captain." ( The Carroll County Chronicles, Winter, 1989, p.7)

In 1870, Joshua gave his age as 48, a wagon maker. Polly was 45. Children: Sarah J. 18, Rachel L. [Louisa] 15, Legrand 13, Elizabeth [Milly E.] age 10,
and Joseph Petta age 6.

Rachel L. Mabry, age 19, daughter of Joshua & Mary, married Newell Horton, age 23, son of Henry & Susannah Horton, 12 Dec 1872, Carroll Co VA.
Sarah Jane Mabry, age 22, daughter of Joshua & Mary, married David T. Edmunds, age 20, son of David & Elizabeth Edmunds, on 23 Jan 1873, Carroll Co VA.
LeGrand Mabry, age 19, son of Joshua & Mary, married Julia Ann Susan Mabry, age 15, daughter of Elizabeth Mabry, 28 Jan 1874, Carroll Co VA.
Note: Julia Ann, age 11, was living with Elizabeth Mabry in 1870 - possibly Joshua's youngest sister because in 1860 both were with Joshua's parents. Elizabeth is not found with a spouse, she could have been married to a Mabry cousin but all indications are that she was a single mother.

1880 Census. Legrand Mabry was now age 24, a Farmer. Julia Ann his wife. Children: Victorine age 5, David Walter age 3. Legrand was living next door to his grandfather Isaac. FindAGrave page lists wife Julia Ann Susan Mabry, daughter of Elizabeth Mabry, born, 30 Nov 1859 - death unknown, but probably buried Horton Cemetery, Sunnyside, Carroll Co VA.

Legrand & Julia lost several young children as evidenced from Carroll Co Death Records:
1876. James S. Mabry died 23 May 1876. Cause unknown. Age 6 months. Parents: Legrand & ___ Mabry.
1890. Lenora Mabry died 30 May 1890. Cause: flux. Age 6. Parents Legran & July Ann.
1890. Patsy Mabry died 31 May 1890. Cause: fever. Age 4. Parents, Legran & July Ann
1890. O. Hayse Mabry [female] died 3 Jun 1890. Cause: flux. Age 1. Parents: Legran & July Ann
1893. Elizabeth Mabry died 10 Jul 1893. Age 1 month, 14 days. Parents: Legran & Julia A. Mabry.
This daughter lived a long life.

Mary "Polly" MABRY was born about 1829. She died about 1848 at the age of 19.

Her estimated birth seems a bit late - I suspect she was older than William - or maybe his date is wrong...

In 1860, Alfred & Emily were living in Carroll County VA. He was a Shoemaker she was doing Sewing & Knitting. Alfred gave his age as 26, hers as 28. Children were boys William R. age 6 and Martin age 3.

Alfred "joined the company (G, 54th VA infantry) September 16, 1861.... He was sick in 1863 and it appears that he did not go to Tennessee with the company for he was not furloughed from the Virginia Hospital until Nov., 1863. He joined up with the company in Georgia and following the Confederate retreat from Nashville, Tennessee in the winter of 1864, was picked up by the Union army and was imprisoned at Nashville." ( Carroll County Chronicles, Winter, 1989, p.6)

By 1870 Alfred had likely died as Emily was head of the household. William R. was now 16 and Martin age 14. Living with her was Mary A. Dalton, age 32 with her children Roxsina 7, James A. 5, and Lilly C. age 6 months, born in February of 1870.
