See the message I just posted on Capt. Jonathan on the ISHAM Forum.
The late John Perrty Alderman, the leading authority on early Montgomery/Grayson/Carroll counties spelled the name "ISHAM," although it often appeared as Isom.
People using the name as a given name had the same problem -often spelled both ways inj the records.
Jonathan was on the ca 1780 tax lists of Henry County, Va as Isom.
