Isaac Jr. was disowned from the Lost Creek Monthly Meeting in 1801, 7th mo, 20th d. Isaac married Amelia Gibson who wasn't a Quaker - this may have been why he was disowned.

Isaac married Amelia Gibson, 1 May 1801 in Asheville, NC. She was the daughter of Garret and Prudence (Sumner) Gibson. Pike Family History states that he was disowned because Amelia was not yet fifteen years old. She was born 6 Jun 1786, Surry Co NC and died Lawrence Co IN, 2 Jul 1841.

Andrew Jackson was elected Major-General of the TN Militia in 1802. When the War of 1812 broke out he offered his 2500 Tennessee Volunteers to the U. S. Government and was ordered to Natchez, Mississippi. When he was ordered to disband in 1813, he refused and took his troops back to Tennessee. During 1813 and 1814, he engaged in various expeditions against the Creek Indians. In 1814 he was Maj.-Gen. in the Regular U. S. Army and in Command of the Department of the South. He engaged attacks against the British in Florida [the Spanish Territory] and defended New Orleans in January of 1815.
Capt. Isaac Williams organized and commanded at least three different companies during the course of the War. The Mounted Rifleman, 24 Sep 1814 - 25 Dec 1813, Col. Newton Cannon's Regt; they traveled from Shelbyville TN to Huntsville AL and were mustered in against the Creek Nation. The East Tennessee Militia, 10 Jan 1814 - May 1814, Saml. Bunch's Regt; mustered at Kingston and again went against the Creeks. The Separate Battalion of Mounted Gunmen, 28 Sep 1814 - 27 Mar 1815, Maj. Wm Russell's Battalion & Col. Robert Dyer's Regt; mustered in at Shelbyville and marched to Fayetteville, TN.

At the "Digital Library on American Slavery", I found petition, #11481738, filed to the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Tennessee, in Knoxville, in 1817. Forty-one petitioners argued that slave owners should be permitted to free their slaves on terms which will not involve them, nor their estates, for their maintenance. And they proposed a law to declare all descendants of slaves, born after the passing of the law, shall be free at a certain age which your honourable Body may fix upon. Signers to the petition included John Adamson, Jonathan Adamson, Simon Adamson Sr, and Isaac Williams.
A copy of the petition is held at the Tennessee State Library & Archives in Nashville.
