CONFLICT
There are two controversies about Isaac Ryan; whether he was the son of Daniel Ryan as shown and whether he was married to Matilda Lawrence. Family given names points towards a strong Lawrence presence begining with Isaac's second child.
There was an article in the 13 July 1888 Pacagoula Democrat Star that states that Isaac and Thomas Bilbo (Ann Lawrence's husband) were brother-in-laws. This points toward a Isaac/Matilda marriage. The article is below.


July 13, 1888
The Pascagoula Democrat Star
REMINISCENCES
Early Days of Jackson County
Editor Democrat Star:


If you find room on your pages, I will give you a brief history of my first trip to Jackson County, in 1813.
I was then a boy about eight years of age; had been in school two years and a half, and was a fair average boy of my age. My father was told by an old Indian that this was a very fine country, and he decided to come down. He built a large boat with two large cypress trees. The boat being ready we left our home, which was in Wayne County, near where the town of Waynesboro is now located. Our crew consisted of the old negro Jack, the old Indian (who called himself Pushmataha) and myself. That was a trying time, and the neighbors were on the banks of the river to see us depart. After a hearty shaking of hands the boat was shoved off, Just as we started Old Jack broke out with his favorite tune -
"Up Roanoke and down the river,
Two overseers and one pore nigger."
Which seemed to revive my spirits, and we got on all right.


We were now coming right through a wild, wilderness country. We had plenty of sport all the way down. We would see old bears coming down trees, or with their cubs on sandbars shuffling off for dear life; droves of deer scampering away, and turkeys by the thousands. Old "Push" with his old gun would knock one over just whenever he wanted to. Here let me say more about that Indian. He said he was born on Choctaw Point and claimed to be a relative of Pushmataha, who was the Chief of the Choctaws in the War of 1812, and who gave 300 of his warriors to General Jackson, and they were with him in the Battles of the Cowpens and Tallapoosa, which wound up the Indian War.


We were soon in the Pascagoula River. The first man we met on the way was McManus. We found him quite a gentleman, and he told us about the convention and all their trouble. The next was Thomas Bilbo. Bilbo was a man of note in the county, and was in the legislature when the lines of Jackson County were established. He was a surveyor, and run out all those Spanish grants . He was also a boat builder, and supplied the old settlers with boats, and the Bilbo model is still kept up. Isaac Ryan, his brother-in-law, lived just below him on the river, and they were the rich men of the county at that time. They were among the first settlers on the river.
When we came by they were all camping in the cane brake to keep out of the way of the Indians . Old Nancy Davis would have the men in arms at every shriek of the night owl. She would not let the children cry, though there was not an Indian this side of the Bigby River.


John Cramer lived at Rice's Bluff. He had a number of boys, one of whom had just been killed by Mr. Lewis, the grandfather of our present sheriff. It was said to have been done in self- defense. The next on the route was Wm. Cates, then James Ware, at Martin's Bluff, and then Pierre Ladnier, lower down. Those who lived above the line of demarcation were in the Territory, and those below were under Spanish authority and law. Dupre lived just below McManus, and was all the time in a row with those below him. He wanted to smuggle, but they would push him so close he could not do it. They met one day out back of Plum Bluff and had a fight, in which one o f the three Davies was killed, the uncle of Judge Davis.


Coming on down we found Mr. Budreaux, his brother-in-law, Mr, Bang, and Mr. Lewis, a daring young lawyer from Kentucky. They were on theWestside, Bapt. Delmas, the Krsbses, the Rabys , the Elys, the Cumbests and the Duponts were all on the east side of the river. They all lived in small houses built with mud and sticks, and nicely plastered with lime.Their chief occupation was burning lime for the New Orleans market. Some make tar for the same market. They had three small schooners to carry their products to market. Capt. Delmas seemed to be the leading man among them.
Thus we found the early settlement of Jackson County seventy-five years ago.


Old Settler
Isaac Ryan who made his will in Jasper County in 1851 had a land claim in Jackson County as early as 1812, voted there in 1813, was a patron of a school in that county in 1818, and was listed in the census in that county as late as 1840. The tax rolls showed that he had nine slaves.


His last will and testament filed in Jasper County in 1851 gave the only outline of his family found anywhere:


Will of Isaac Ryan, 1851
Executor, son George W. Ryan. Legatees:
To George W. Ryan, 6 slaves and 480 acres of land in JacksonCounty.

To George W. Ryan, son, all residue of estate.
Dated Sept. 8, 1851


Jacob Ryan, the grandson named in the will, enlisted in Co. A, 24th Miss. Infantry and served throughout the Civil War. His son, Isaac Peeples Ryan, has a complete roster of his father's company. The veteran lived to be 94 and is buried in Forrest County, and has a Confederate marker over his grave.
