      Subject: RE: CONN and ISAAC

      The relationship between George CONN (1732-aft 1810, son of Hugh 1685-1752), his wife Sarah ISAAC and son Richard Isaac CONN is demonstrated by the following documents:

      1752: Will of Hugh CONN proved in Prince George's Co. MD; leaves land, part of "Hudson's Range", to son George CONN.

      1776 Maryland Census shows George CONN with wife Sarah, 32, 2 sons, and 4 daughters. (Obviously this can't be George CONN who died in 1774).

      6 Feb 1778: George CONN and brother James sold land in PGCo called "Hudson's Range", which they inherited from their father Rev. Hugh
      CONN.

      1782 Tax Rolls, Pittsylvania Co. VA: George CONN with 7 whites, 6 blacks.

      1787 Tax Rolls, Pittsylvania Co. VA: George CONN paid taxes for self and son Richard.

      1794: George and son Richard sold land in Pittsylvania Co. VA
      (George moved to Washington Co. VA and was still there with wife, presumably Sarah, in 1810; son Richard Isaac CONN went to Coffee Co. TN, where he died. He is sometimes mistranscribed as "Richard J. CONN")

      The George CONN who died in Prince George's Co. in 1774 was almost certainly the brother of Rev. Hugh CONN, hence uncle of George CONN who married Sarah ISAAC. He named no wife in his Will. Sources say she was Isabella CHARTRES/CHARTER; some suspect that Isabella wasn't his first wife, though she was certainly the mother of George's daughters Penelope (FINLEY) and Mary (VEITCH)- the names Isabella and Charter were passed down in their lines.
