Neither Jesse & Nancy or Jepo were born in Ireland, that I'm aware of. Jesse moved to IL by 1818 and died there, Jepo supposedly moved to AL ca. 1830's and died there. Yet the birth year of this Isaac R. matches Jepo's son, while the family members appear to be that of Jesse's son born 1838 IL. Jepo was also still in Ga when Isaac's (of 1838) older brother Thomas D. was born 1821 IL. Also Isaac (1838) sister is Elizabeth E. b. ca. 1826 IL, who md. Thomas Petit. Can anybody PLEASE explain who this Isaac really is? See- http://www.usgwarchives.org/ar/searcy/census/1900/123-05b.gifhttp://www.usgwarchives.org/ar/searcy/census/1900/123-05b.gif My Martha J. Fain's death certificate states her parents were Isaac Fain & Lusendia Night per Mary L. Thomas, dauo Isaac & 1st wife Mary Frances Clevenger.
