Notes provided by Curtis HENNESY on Isaac relate:

Isaac could have been born in Chatham County, GA or Marion County, MS. Might have had another daughter, according to Census.

Some relatives believe that Isaac Ennis was born in SC. Some Census records show him being born in MS and others in Georgia. Much of present day MS was ceded by SC to GA in 1787. Georgia ceded the land to MS in 1802. Curtis Hennesy believes that Isaac was born between 1785 and 1800. Present day Marion County, MS was at one time part of SC and another time part of GA.

Isaac Hennesey married Judith Gill in 1820. Listed father as David Hennesey. Married in Marion Co. MS.

Washington Parish, LA court records show Isaac’s wife name as Ann. Curtis Hennesy believes that name was Judith Ann Gill. A James Gill was found in Marion County, MS in 1820 census.

Sharon Church records show Isaac and Judy Hennesy were new members as of November 14, 1846. This was by letter from the Antioch Church of Marion County, Mississippi.

1850 LOUISIANA WASHINGTON PARISH CENSUS

NOTE: Curtis Hennesy notes on the Isaac Hennesys in this census, “1850 census shows two Isaac HENNESSEYS about 15 to 20 years apart. The older one could have been the brother of the father of the younger one. Nancy was the name of the wife of the older Isaac.”

I am wondering instead of Isaac HENNESY Sr. hasn’t been recorded twice in this census; I have seen this happen on the occasion. With both instances an R. MCLEAN is living next door.
