I need help finding information about Isaac GLASS. In 1794, he purchased 148 acres on Lick Run, a branch of North River in Augusta Co which he later sold in 1813. In 1797, he and Andrew YOUNG made an Augusta Co. marriage bond for Andrew to marry Isaac's daughter Margaret E. GLASS (my ancestors).
In 1815, the will of Isaac GLASS dated 1813 was proved. He named daughters Fany KING (wife of Adam KING) and Margaret YOUNG and grandchildren Isaac & Harry KING, and Isaac, Margaret & Robert YOUNG.
Isaac GLASS is estimated to have been born about 1750 and may have fought in the Revolutionary War. I would appreciate any information about Isaac GLASS, his birth, parents, wife, etc. Where was he during the Revolutionary War (tax list, land record)?
Thank you for any help
