dont know if this is what your looking for..but here is what I have


(Source: (1) DAR Membership # 278 734 Maud Isaac., (2) South CarolinaArchives order # 3374, AA 3957 1/2 pp li B # 19 Contingent Account.Papers by Legislature Nov. 23, 1795.) was born 1759 in Fredrick CountyVirginia., and died 1844 in Lincoln County Tenn. He married MARY WALLACE1774 in South Carolina. She was born 1754 in Fredrick County Virginia.,and died 1838 in Lincoln County Tenn.

Notes for SAMUEL ISAACS:

Served in South Carolina Line under "MARION AT BATTLE OF COWPENS"during the American Revolution as Spy for North and South Carolina. Alsoserved under his father Col. Elijah Isaacs in North Carolina.

See South Carolina Archives

Order # 3374 AA 3957 1/2 pp Li #19 Contingent Account. papers bylegislature Nov 23, 1795.
He first joined the American Army as a private in District 96 in S. C.in Sept. 1776. The year before he married and had twin sons born Feb.11, 1775. He named the twins Elijah and Elisha. He stated that heserved for two years as a spy for the American Army against the Indians.He served several three-month terms in both the N.C. and S.C. militia.He served under his father at least one term. He was discharged byGeneral McDowell at Quaker Meadows in Burke Co., N.C.
In 1788 he lived in Franklin CO. Ga. It was here the Indians attackedhis home and destroyed everything. His wife and children escaped withoutharm.

The correct birth year is in question war records showing 1759, familyrecords show 1754. Since he had twin boys in 1775, the 1754 birth yearwould be more logical, perhaps the War Dept mistook the 4 for a 9 ?
