I believe the parents of Lewis Iseley/Isley were John Iseley (b.c.1775-d.1860) and Mary Brinkley.
This is from a Mitchell booklet found in the vertical files at the Burlington library (I didn't copy the title page, so I don't know the authors name) :
Record of Deeds, Alamance Co, page 72, dated Jan 4, 1860 - Albert Mitchell and wife, Martha filed an indenture stating that John Iseley had died intestate following a seizure. His property consisted of 205 acres of land on the waters of Broad Cap Branch and adjoined the lands of Benj. Pike, J. Sellars and others. The indenture states that John Iseley left NINE children and heirs. The tenants-in-common of the land were listed as: 1-Austin Iseley *2-Lewis Iseley 3-John C. Iseley 4-Elizabeth Thomas 5-Jerry Iseley 6-James Piper and wife Almeda 7-Albert Mitchell and wife Martha
The land had been divided into 9 parts. Only eight lots were claimed. Who claimed the eighth parcel is not stated in this petition. The ninth parcel was unclaimed. The first 6 heirs named were paid the sum of $567 and in return, conveyed all their estate rights, titles and interests to and in parcel number 9 to Albert Mitchell and wife Martha. Land was surveyed Nov 18, 1863. --------------- 1840 Census,Northern Div, Orange Co, NC John Iseley 1 Males of 10 and under 15 (John Creeley-14) 1 Males of 15 and under 20 (Jerry-15) 1 Males of 20 and under 30 (????? b.1810-1820) this would be Lewis 1 Males of 60 and under 70 (John 65) 1 Females of 5 and under 10 (Almeda-8) 1 Females of 10 and under 15 (Martha-13) 1 Females of 50 and under 60 (Mary-55)
Daughter Elizabeth Iseley(b.c.1810) was already married to George Thomas by 1840. And Austin Iseley was born 1806 so I assume he was already married by then to Margaret ----. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
