|Notes: Isham grew up on his parents' farm in Pendleton County, Kentucky.
Isham's father Henry died before 1860 and before Isham's grandfather Frank died.
Isham and five of his siblings therefore became heirs for Henry's share of Frank's
estate and divided 16 acres of Kenton County land between themselves on 21 Apr 1862.|
Also in 1862 Isham enlisted as a private in Company B, Capt. Corbin's Men, a part of the 6th Confederate Battalion Cavalry of the CSA. The 6th Battalion was also known as Jessee's Battalion of Kentucky Mounted Riflemen, and was commanded by Lieutenant Colonel George M. Jessee. Isham apparently re-enlisted in 1863 when he was 20 years old.
A life-long farmer, Isham passes away at age 86 years and 3 days.
