View Tree for Isaac CalvertIsaac Calvert (b. 1749, d. Aft. March 09, 1829)

Isaac Calvert (son of Thomas Calvert and Sarah Williamson) was born 1749 in Chester Co PA, and died Aft. March 09, 1829 in Morgan Co OH or perhaps Greene Co PA. He married Frances Bullitt.

 Includes NotesNotes for Isaac Calvert:
Fanny, b 1856 I think, is her sister. She married Isaac Calvert b 1747/8 and Isaac removed from Chester Co to Washington County between 1790 US Census and 1793 Tax list. He was living in Cumberland Twp in 1793. Later he apparently bought land in Southern Greene County as it was formed from great Washington County. Isaac died in Greene 1830, or possible 1829 (not in US Census of 1830 but we haven't been able to figure out where Frances is either. Frances removed to Boone Co IN with her daughter Sarah Hannah b 1785 who married George Dye. They are all three buried there in Boone Co. This is where we get the birth date for Fanny but no date on the stone for her death.

From David Bell on the Calvert Rootsweb site
1829 - On February 25, an Article of Agreement is signed between William Calvert and his wife Jane, and George Dye, both of Morgan Co., OH. William and Jane deed over the land in Wayne Twp. to George Dye in stipulatiuon that George and his heirs comply with the same conditions that William
Calvert had previously agreed to regarding care and maintenance of Isaac Calvert and Frances..

1829 - On March 9, the above stipulation is incorporated into Articles of Agreement between Isaac and Frances Calvert and George Dye.

1830 - On April 1, George and Sarah Dye give power of attorney to John Fordyce and appoint him to sell the Wayne Twp. land to Thomas Brock.

1832 - George and Sarah Dye deed the Wayne Twp. land over to Thomas Brock

1836: - Attorney files record with court regarding the previous legal transacctions.

Issue of Isaac Calvert and Frances Fanny Bullitt(sic)
Note: Thomas, first born is the only one we know that would be the son of Elizabeth Gart(Cart). It is my opinion, that the children through Ezekiel are children of Elizabeth and that the children of Frances begin after this - there is a gap related to recorded children, 1778 to the birth of Sarah Hannah 1785. Frances removes to Boone Co IN with Sarah and her husband George Dye and is buried there at Eagle Twp Cemetery beside her daughter and son in Law.

From Willard Anderson
Thank you for the information. Somewhere I have a list of information from the Ohio Genealogical Society with information on Jones. The one item I found interesting were some land purchases and census information which from memory I think was the 1830 census. It showed a John Jones,
Jacob Jones and Isaac Calvert next to each other. This was in Noble County, Ohio. I believe also land purchases put them in the same township and range. I know from what little research I have done in Ohio is that the boundaries for Morgan, Noble, and Guernsey counties shifted around some.

Both Walt and Willard think that Elizabeth may be a sister of Sarah Hanna Calvert. Walt has a 1742 birth date for Isaac.
Walt Criteser, Mon, Jun 1, 1998, 00:01:00
Elizabeth CALVERT born March 1793 (?) Pennsylvania. She married about May 1812 (?), in Pennsylvania, Jacob JONES b. 1794 in Green co, PA. By 1813 it is believed Elizabeth and Jacob are in Morgan county, Ohio, because their children John, Jacob, Isaac, Abraham, James, Lewis and Sam were born in Morgan county, Ohio. By Dec 1835 Jacob JONES has remarried and has migrated to Boone county, Indiana. A Boone county Indiana history book reports his earlier wife "Elizabeth Calvert, a descendant of an old German family of the Keystone state." What Pennsylvania county was Elizabeth from? In 1852 Jacob JONES migrates to Oregon. Who are Elizabeths parents and siblings?

Researcher: James R. Calvert

I believe Issac fought with the PA militia in the battle of Brandywine Creek, but am not sure. He might be the son or brother of John Calvert who settled in Upper Bald Eagle Township in what is now Centre County, PA. There is an allusion to him as an Uncle by one of John's great-granddaughters who lived near him for a time in Morgan County. She stated that he and a brother were in the Battle of Brandywine Creek.

Battle of Brandywine Creek occurred Sept 10,11, 1777 near Philadelphia.

From Bob Mcmanus
Calverts by the name of Issac and Robert from Pensylvania are found at later dates in Guernsey Co, Ohio. These may be your lines found in Greene Co, Pennsylvania in 1800.

From Jim Ray
Robert Calvert died in Greene County some time after 1804. His children--one of whom is my gg-grandfather Hiram Calvert--and his wife were in Greene County Orphan's Court in 1806. Isaac Calvert is Robert's father. The 1800 census of Greene County is the only evidence I have of him, although I believe he came from the Chester County, PA Calverts. He may have moved on to Ohio, as we next find Hiram in Morgan County, OH.

From David Bell
This email is regarding Isaac b 1783, would appear to be the brother of Thomas and Ezekiel all 3 found in the Greene co. pa census 1810......Supposed ancestor is isaac b varyingly 1735 1742
or 1749.I am inclined now to agree that 1749 is appropriate but have no proof. Recall the military inlistments of calverts in the 3rd va regiment, circa 1778-81. Thomas is not there. Ezekiel and
Isaac are and their ages might be isaac b 1749, ezekiel, his eldest or relative b 1755, brother of thomas b 176(or 84). no proof, just speculation but isaac was rumored to have fought at brandywine.
finding various other calverts including zeal and ezekiel gives reason to suspect that they are related(census data) location, etc.

I found this on isaac whom i believe is the isaac in the 1810
census of greene co. pa. recalll previously that I have some
respective information on ezek. going to OH and dying bef the 1820
census but finding rhoda debolt in OH with issue. also, isaac
appears and disappears from greene co as well. We know that Thomas
Clare was b in monangalia VA(later WVA). we know he m elizabeth
johnson and the census of 1850 shows TC gone but elizabeth and all
offspring b in VA. As well note the early spelling of Colbert.
This was not necessarily an error on the part of the census taker
but could have been. the census taker took the info and entered it
on the data sheet, not the people being polled. further, there
was reason in some cases of family divisiveness at the rev. war
and 1812 to separate from loyalist calverts. there is also the
saga of alias Harrison(Harris) in the background as well.

From David Bell
I too am looking at this Isaac Calvert. The RD Furlong Book
Furlong-Delany and Kindred Families shows the following:

Cecilius b 1700 ca
Isaac b1735
Ezekiel b1755
I am working backwards from my line:
ezek. in the 1810 Greene Co. census with Isaac and thomas, Whitely twp. all 3 showing in the 26-46 category. the isaac and ezek. appear to be brothers or related.
My Thos. shows in the book as b1769 m Anna Ewing

Father of Thomas C b1803 m Elizabeth Johnson
Albert Gallatin b1830. m Mary A. Polly Cain
John Ewing m Martha Lemasters
Arthur Clay my grandfather

I had seen info somewhere that Isaac married a frances.
You have Bullock and I have bullitt (various) spellings going by the name of Fanny. I think Ezek. m Rhoda Debolt but not sure.

It is possible that Isaac was b in MD or VA and perhaps
Ezekiel as well.

Subject: Re: PML Search Result matching "John Calvert"

With a little luck I will do a cut and paste from an e-mail I received from a Calvert researcher and we can go from there. Hope it is helpful.

You will find that John, Job and Jacob's father was John Calvert. He lived in an area (Upper Bald Eagle twp) that was transferred from Northumberland County to Mifflin County and then to
Centre County at the time of its creation in 1804. He was listed on the 1790 census as was
John Jr. Job and Jacob was just coming into maturity at the time and were still associated
with their father's household.

In the 1800 census of Mifflin County a lady Colvert was still listed in
the county. She had a younger woman living with her. Some people have translated the first
name as Wondlus or similar variations. I suspect from the way the census taker listed
other women without husbands that the correct should be Widow Colvert. (By the way, people
in Morgan and Monroe Counties in OH. still pronounce the name Calvert as if it were spelled
Colvert. My nephew's wife is from that area.)

Several of us hired a researcher to look into the family in Mifflin
County a couple of years back. He was unable to pursue the line back beyond Mifflin County. We,
unfortunately, ran out of money. A pity, because the gentleman, Justin, Houser, was an
excellent researcher.

Some other things that I have learned since from from Mr. Charles
Maple. When Jacob Calvert was in Morgan County, there was an Issac Calvert living there. Jacob's
children spoke of him as "Uncle". Issac's daughter was married to George Dye of Chester
County, PA. Issac claimed that he and his brother, William, fought at Brandywine Creek. There is
a record of a William Calvert serving in the PA Militia at Brandywine, but I have not found a
record of Issac.

Was Issac a brother to Jacob, John and Job? It is hard to tell. Children often called an older neighbor of whom they were fond by the term "uncle" even as late as the 1930s.

The father John may have been the same John Calvert who was a part--one
of the founders--of the Momouth Meeting. This John Calvert moved to PA from Maryland/Virginia
and little is know of him. The time of the move, however, makes it possible that he is the
same person. Was this John Calvert a born Quaker? Three is a legend that he was not, but was
Catholic. It is legend. There is no proof.

Let us know what you find out. We are against a stone wall partly due
to the fact that we cannot go through land records and the like ourselves..

e-mail address:

Interested in contacts on all of the above Quaker names. CLAVERT Thomas CALVERT b.1715 m. Sarah Williamson in Goshen Mtg, Chester Co PA 1739. It is conjectured that Joshua CALVERT and Deborah HARLAN were his parents. Joshua and Deboarh were m. 1709 at Newark Mtg. The son of Thomas and Sarah CALVERT was Isaac CALVERT born about 1749, probably in Chester Co. He was at Goshen Mtg in 1769 when he married contrary to discipline to Frances ----. Their son Robert CALVERT c1770-1804 married Alice----. I would like to contact other researchers on this family to compare notes. I can offer my research and that which I have gleaned from others. Can anyone help on the family names of Frances and Alice? Does anyone have proof that Thomas was son of Joshua and Deborah? Stephen Ford
I am looking for the dates of Isaac Calvert and wife Frances Fanny Bullitt
Calvert, buried in the Old Blacksville Cemetery, Blacksville, WV or Blackville
PA. Greene County. Help appreciated.

Letter To Dr T.M. Miller from Ida Calvert who lived at Silverhill
Ida Calvert Silverhill, WVA Jun 1 1921
To: Dr T.M. Calvert (Thomas Miller Calvert, Son of Reason Calvert,
Grandson of Thomas C. Calvert)

Dear Uncle:

We came home from Greene Co Last night and have nearly all the information you desire.

We found the Grave of our great Grandfather Thomas C Calvert
on the hill above Roberts Run on a farm owned by Richard Calvert's son (Thomas)Tommy. The Plot is fenced but the stone was there in
three pieces. When we got the stone out of the ground we found the inscription perfect.

We next went to Isaac Calverts old farm now owned by Richard Calvert's son John. He bought it about a year ago(1920) from S.C. Brock. We found what we thought to be the spot covered with brush and briar's but John had his boys cut and rake the briars and at last
we found a grave, part of a footstone was there but the head stone was gone. We scoured the whole region but did not find the other stone.

We next went to the old graveyard at Blacksville and easily found
the grave of Anne Ewing Calvert(Anna). The others were satisfied with their find but there were so many old stones there that Clark and I insisted on looking at them. We found a stone marked Fanny Bullett Calvert. At the head was a larger stone that had been recut with the name Johann Margaret Calvert on it but it was very old and there had been something else on it earlier. We could make out a few letters an I believe it is Issac's Tombstone.

We went to the Valley Chapel Graveyard and found Grandfather's and Grandmothers Graves in good Condition (Hugh Ewing Calvert and Sarah
Ann Miller Calvert--Hugh's stone says HE Calvert and neither is
in good condition now--Photos available).

Lisan Conklin says that Thomas C. Calvert and Anne Ewing Calvert were married in Mapletown but she did not know the date.
