I am researching the family of Sophia ISAACSON, b. 1829 at Exning, Suffolk, ENG--d. after 1910 at Mansfield, Piatt, IL,USA who married John WARREN, b. 1827 at Exning, Suffolk, ENG--d. Piatt Co., IL.USAThey married 1849 at Exning Parish. John and Sophia WARREN were noted to be the first married couple to leave Exning for America in the fall of 1853.
Sophia ISAACSON's father was James ISAACSON b. 1804--d. 1884 at Exning, ENG, mother was Sophia [--?--]b. 1794--d. 1863 at Exning, ENG.
Her father, James, was Exning parish clerk who signed as a witness for her marriage and recorded the marriage in 1849.
In the 1841 Census report James's occupation was listed as solicitor working at Newmarket while residing at Exning.
It is reported that James ISAACSON and his wife Sophia had six daughters before they had two sons. One infant son, John ISAACSON d. 1839 and is buried with them.
Reportedly Isaacson Road in Burwell, ENG was named for this family.
Does anyone have further information about this family to share?I have family history about John Warren and Sophia Isaacson I will share.
