Jacob Isler, 1770 South Carolina

Looking for ancestors of Jacob Isler who received Bounty from George the Third of one hundred acres of land in the Fork of Edisto River in Colleton County, South Carolina, August 24, 1770. The land is in current day Orangeburg County about 13 miles south of the City of Orangeburg. Descendants currently spell the name, Izlar. It has been suggested that it was originally spelled Ysler or Yssler, but the 1770 Bounty suggests otherwise. My Grandfather, Ernest Barton Izlar, thought the name was Swiss, but German is a possibility. It has also been suggested that Jacob came to this country as a small boy with the Wolff family and later married a Zibilla Wolff. They had a son, Jacob Isler, who died in Orangeburg District on September 4, 1839 at the age of 72 years. If you would like to exchange information, please email me:
