DESCENDANTS OF ISABELLA GRAVES HENDERSON AND JOSHUA CALLAWAY OF NC & GA

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Isabella Graves Henderson (1) was born 21 Dec. 1763 in Orange Co., NC, and died 12 Oct. 1826 in Wilkes Co., GA. She married Joshua Callaway, son of Edward Callaway and Elizabeth ------, on 29 Jan. 1778 in Anson Co., NC. He was born 17 Feb. 1757 in Sussex Co., DE, and died 10 Feb. 1816 in Montgomery Co., NC.

Parents of Isabella were Joseph Henderson (b. 1737 in Orange Co. or Hanover Co., VA, d. 1809 or 1812 in Wilkes Co., GA) and Isabelle Adelphia ("Delphi" or "Delphia") Lea (b. 1748 in Spotsylvania Co., VA, d. 3 Jan. 1813 in Wilkes Co., GA). Parents of Joseph Henderson were John Henderson and Sarah Brockman. Parents of Isabelle Adelphia Lea were James Lea and Anne Herndon. Ancestors for the next generation back are also all known, and most of the ancestors for the preceding generation are known. None of them are surnamed Graves, and it is believed that Isabella Graves Henderson probably did not have a Graves ancestor. It seems most likely that she was named for her aunt Isabella Lea (sister of her mother) who married John Graves (son of Thomas Graves and Ann Davenport, and descendant of immigrant Capt. Thomas Graves). (R-1, R-2, R-3)
