I suddenly came to the realization that I can just add to what you have on their children below. I will do that but will put it in all caps and red lettering so you can tell what I have added.

Hi Mary Jane,

Emma Eliza Northup Dodrill is a side branch for me - she was the youngest sister of my husband's gg-grandfather Cyrus Winfield Northup. I don't need a lot if information on Isaac, but I would like to have dates and places for his birth and death if you have them. Also the place of their marriage if you know it - I have the date but not the place. My source for this information was a typed paper by a family member - if you see anything that I have that you think is not correct please let me know.

Have you found Isaac and Emma Eliza on any of the census records? I am not sure where they lived. Cyrus and Emma lived in Iowa as children, but were in Rooks Co., KS by 1880 (Emma was 19 then). Cyrus lived in mostly in Kansas and Nebraska as an adult, although he was also in Iowa and Missouri for short while.

Kari

> I have a book written by Charles Tunis Dodrill in 1967 called Heritage of A Pioneer. It is a genealogy of the Dodrill families. I will attempt to do a direct quote from that book but will have to type it in by hand, so please overlook the typo errors. It is rather lengthy but says a lot about both Isaac Jacob Dodrill and his wife and family. I hope you won't mind reading this to get the info you are looking for. There isn't a specific place for their marriage named here but it sure looks like it was in the vicinity of Woodston in Rooks County, Kansas. The children are all named with birth dates and some death dates, as well

> "Isaac Jacob Dodrill was born Sept 27, 1859 on Poplar Creek of Birch River in Nicholas County, Virninia now in WV. He was the son of William Christian Dodrill and Sarah Hamrick. He married Emma Eliza Northup born Sept 7 1861 and died Aug 31 1934, daughter of Stephen Monroe Northup and Harriet Eliza Gilbert, m. Oct 11, 1883.
>
> Children are listed next with birth dates for all. I can send those if you want.
>
> Continuing from the book: " Prior to 1858, Isaac Jacob Dodrill's father lived on Laurel Creek of Elk River, in Braxton Co, VA now WV on lands owned by his father in law, William Hamrick. After William Hamrick's death, his heirs, including William and Sarah Dodrill, joined in a deed dated Jan 28, 1858 conveying the lands which William and Sarah Dodrill lived, to William C. Dodrill, son of James Dodrill and Rebecca Gregory. He was also a brother in law of William Christian Dodrill, having married Sarah's sister, Mary. William and Sarah, the parents of Isaac Jacob Dodrill , then moved to Poplar Creek of Birch River, in Nicholas County, and settled on the lands of his father, John Dodrill, a short distance above the mouth of the creek. Isaac Jacob was born a few months after the family moved to Poplar Creek.
> Isaac Jacob was eight years old when his father disposed of all his property and joined a group of settlers and neighbors who were to be escorted to the west by returning soldiers. There is a tradition that the family stopped and spent some time in Richmond, Indiana. Eventually, they arrived in Nebraska and settled near Lincoln, Lancaster County. Some of the traditional events of the trip are related in the biography of Isaac Jacob's father William Christian Dodrill.
> Isaac Jacob returned to West Virginia with the family in 1874 and renewed his acquaintance with his relatives on Birch River, and those of his mother, above the Fork Lick on Elk River, in Webster County. In 1875, the family returned to Nebraska and settled on a rented farm near Lincoln. Soon, Isaac Jacob's brother George Martin, and his brother in law, Seth Maston, went to Rooks County, Kansas. His brother, George had just become a benedict, and he and Seth took up lands in this new unsettled country. During the summer of 1878, George went back to Nebraska and returned with his father and nephew, Adam Smith. In September, Isaac Jacob, his sister, Nannie and his mother Sarah, came to Rooks Co. They immediately took up lands under the homestead laws.
> Isaac Jacob took up a quarter=section, the SW1/4Sec. 13, Township 8, Range 18, west of the Principal Meridian, as a timber claim. This was available to those who paid a small fee and agreed to plant ten acres of timber and care for it for a period of five years.
> His father, William , took a timber claim at the same time. Isaac Jacob abandoned his claim and took over his father's claim, who then filed for another quarter seciton of school land in the same section. He built a one and a half story stone house, and a stone dug out stable. Native white limestone was plentiful and easily quarried. It made a durable building when supported by a foundation of hard stone or concrete. His brother, George Dodrill, homesteaded the northeast quarter in the section adjoining the south.
> Five years after the arrival of the Dodrill family in Kansas, Isaac Jacob met a Yankee girl at a United Brethern Church in Woodston,
> about 20 miles from his home. Emma Eliza Northup was the daughter of Stephen Monroe Northup, a pioneer, who had homesteaded one mile west of Woodston in 1874, just in time to experience the disastrous grasshopper invasion fo that year. The Northups were of a staunch, Puritan stock, originally from Ohio.
> After their marriage, Isaac Jacob rented the Northup farm and lived there for one year. In October, 1884, he and his wife moved with
> their three months old son, Ellsworth, to the timber claim south of Stockton, where they lived in a sod house until 1889. A comfortable stone house, sixteen by twenty-four feet, was later erected, a great improvement over the sod house. This timber calim became the family homestead where all the children were reared. As the family increased, new rooms were added until it became an 8 room house. Isaac Jacob later purchased his father's school land and acquired the other half of the section, leaving a good 640 acre farm as a means to support his family and a monument to his foresight and industry.
> Isaac Jacob Dodrill was a frugal, industrious, and thrifty farmer in western Kansas. He had adaquate buildings, good fences, fine teams of horses, a farm well stocked, and the latest designs in modern machinery and equipment with which to operate.
> The descendants of Isaac Jacob Dodrill and his devoted wife, Emma, form a large segment of honorable and successful citizens throughout the west. You will find their offsprings in the business worls, on the farms, and in the professions. These two pioneers are buried in Stockton, Kansas, near where they lived and reared their family."
