  • DEATH: 30 Aug 1832, Rutherford Co. Tennessee
  • RESOURCES: See: [S2444] [S2911]

  2. +Joseph MASON
  3.  Isaac MASON III
  4.  Jacob MASON

Notes


Isaac MASON, Sr. was married to Sarah his second wife September the 28, 1817


"We are tracking the Mason family that came to Nashville area in 1790 after a trip down the Ohio and Monongahela Rivers out of the area south of Uniontown, PA and north of Morgantown, now WV. Prior to that they had come from Delaware. Shute surname, they came out of Fayette, PA and we think they were on the river trip out in 1790 with the Masons. We have been trying to put together the 18 or so families that came out of that area and through Pittsburgh and down the Ohio and up the Cumberland . Isaac Mason purchases land from Philip Shute (Sute in records some places) and Isaac's last son is born 1797 in Sute Hall, probably the Philip Shute homeplace that was sold to Isaac."


"I have a deed between James Collinsworth and Isaac Mason in Davidson Co TN 12 Oct 1798 where Isaac sells to James Collinsworth. The Indian massacre is described in one of Abram Mason's letters. Isaac Mason came to area of Nashville in 1790."



"Isaac Mason was a tailor who came to Nashville, Tenn ( at the time it was Nashboro) ca 1784 with his brother-in-law Jordan Hall. Jordan later went back to Delaware and brought Isaac's Mother -in-law, who was a widow, to Tennessee."


The Family of Isaac Mason and Parthena Hall Mason by Major E.B. Mason, a grandson


Isaac Mason was decended from an English family who settled in Delaware in 1720. He had one brother who settled in Virginia; they were left orphans while young. He was connected with the will known family of Masons of Virginia. His cousin, Ann Mason, was the mother of General Winfield Scott.


Isaac was bound to a tailor, where he completed his apprenticeship, and for many years followed his trade. His wife was born and raised Pennsylvania (Delaware) and was connected to a large and respectable family. She had two brothers, wone of whom was named Ryner and the other Allen.


Isaac Mason and wife were Episcopal Methodist and lived in the days of John Wesley, Asberry and McKindrew. During the Revolutionary War he was a soldier under Washington, Green and Lafayette and was present at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorkwton on the 19th of October, 1781. He was the discharged and returned to his family.


The following year he moved to Sussex Co., Virginia and remained there until 1787. He sold off his loose property and moved his familly to Monongalia(sic) Co., Virginia, in order to prepare a boat on which to move his family and hosehold goods to French Lick, now Nashville, Tennessee.
On the way to thier new home, they were obliged to pass the falls of the Ohio River which was then considered dangerous. He took all his family on shore and hired an experienced hand to take his boat over. In the meantime, his family were in danger of being attacked by hostile indains, for they were bitterly opposed to the whites advancing further West. The water was not at a very good stage for passing the falls and a large number of movers having accumulated at that place and fearing an attack from indians they remained longer, a council was held by the interested parties and it was resolved to attempt to pass the falls.They pledged to each other if anyone was so unfortunate as to lose his boat and cargo that he would not be left behind. Out of the sixteen boats and cargoes thirteen passed in saftey. One of the boats lost belonged to Isaac Mason and was the most valuable boat and cargo out of the sixteen boats. He was thus left without means but his companions, true to their promise, proceeded to build a boat to accommodate him and his family who had lost all. This work took but a little time and they were soon on their way again but had not gone more than twenty miles when they were attacked by a large force of Indians from the Ohio sideand in canoes. The whites were successful in the fight, killing a number of the enemy and capturing their canoes. Several of the whites were badly wounded, among the number being a woman and her little child. During the attack the women steered while the men gave battle. One of the women proved herself a better axe-man than steersman for she ran the boat too near her enemies on the shore and two of the savages tired to board the boat; one lost his hand by a single blow of the axe and the other lost his life, having his head split open.


They were attacked again as they began to ascend the Cumberland River but not in such numbers as before and they were easily dispersed. The gallant little company of boats had hard work in ascending the Cumberland River with its strong currents. They were met by several men who had heard of thier coming who came to give them a helping hand. Thus, through much toil and danger, this heroic band of hardy adventurers landed at the mouth of Lick Branch, (now Nashville, Tennesee) on the 18th day of March, 1789, at which place there was a fort known as "French Lick"."


Isaac Mason was thirty-six yars of age and had a wife and six living children when he arrived at his destination and having lost all, had no means of support but his trade, for which there was little demand, on account of the scarcity of cloth. Necessity, however, caused the people to have their pants and hunting shirts made out of deerskins, so he and his wife, who was an excellent seamstress, soon got as much work as she could do and made enough to support the family. He was the first Tailor at the place where Nashville now stands.


Here are some abstracts from leters of Ezekiel Brownlee Mason who was my Joseph Mason's nephew. He also wrote the second piece quoted above.


Letter dated April 28, 1877......."I have this day forwarded from Trenton, Tennessee, a cast kettle which was brought to America by my great-great-grandfather John Mason in the year 1620..... This piece of casting was brought to French Lick, now Nashville, by my grandfather, Isaac Mason, in March,1788 and was used as a cooking vessel in the fort built by Col. James Robertson. My grandfather was a tailor by trade and was the first tailor at the French Lick, now Nashville. He remained in Nashville and its vicinity until 1799. He then moved to Williamson County...... My father, Abram Mason was married to Peggy Curry in 1800. I was born near Nelensville in 1802 and was raised there until 1820. My father moved to Rutherford Co., . In 1830 he moved to Madison Co., Tennessee, where he died in 1862....... I came to where Madison co. in 1821 and was one among the old surveyors in the settling of West Tennessee. I served my county 53 years..... I will try to come to the Centennial if I am able and will expect a free ticket..... I have a sermon preached by one of my Uncles in England in 1802. It is in good condition..... Would it be of intrest or not?"


Isaac's proposed ancestry and traditions about his life are included in THE MASON FAMILY by Naomi Hailey of Nashville, Tenn. The above information reguarding his children is from Abram Mason Bible, Williamson Co. Tenn. Marriage Records, Rutherford co., Tenn. Marriage Recorsd , Tombstone in Mason Family Cemetery and from Gregory material furnished by Naomi Hailey.


Note that some of his dates are different from what he wrote for the Hall Records but the story is basically the same. Dates are also different from what Abram Mason (Isaac Mason's son) wrote in a letter to Dr. John Henry Curry in 1860. Part of this letter was published in AMERICAN HISTORICAL MAGAZINE Vol. III (1898)pp. 88-90.


In part"..... Father moved to Virginia when I was young and settled in Monomgahela Co., . He stayed there until I was about 12... he and 18 of his neighbors, in the spring of 1790, built a large keel bottomed boat. We did not start until May....We got to the falls of the Ohio in June and the river had got so low we could not get the boat over the falls. He stayed in Kentucky the balance of the summer...In September 1790, nine families out of the nineteen built perogerrogs, one to each family...."
