Advisory on Birthdate of Frederick Iaac (Ice, Isaac)

Some sources claim that Frederick Iaac (Ice, Isaac) was born abt. 1680 and died in 1795, which would have made him 115 years old at the time of this death, which would be very unlikely. Others claim that he was born in 1713 in Holland, but since his first son was born in abt. 1728, he would have been only 15 years old at the time. It is more likely that Frederick was born abt. 1700, most likely in either Germany or Holland, where many of the early settlers of the South Branch of the Potomac River originated.

Frederick Iaac, Jr., was born in Holland in 1713. He immigrated to America in the early 1700's with his parents, and first lived in Maryland with his family.

Frederick was first married to Mary (Galloway) about 1727, and they raised a family of children. They settled on the South branch of the Potomic River in Hampshire Co., (W.) Virginia, where he was living in the 1750's.

Frederick Iaac with his oldest son John R., had gone to Winchester, Va., with most of the men settlers to buy provisions. An Indian raid hit the South Branch area in 1745, and when Frederick returned, he found the body of his wife and 3 smaller children. His second son, William, and his daughter, Mary, had been captured by the Indians and carried into the Ohio territory. These 2 children were adopted by the Indians, and when William was older, he escaped and returned home; Mary married an Indian, Puksineau, and had children. After losing his 1st wife and several children in the Indian raid, he remarried to Mrs. Eleanor (Livingstone) Thompson, a widow, on March 9, 1752, and had more childen.

Frederick Iaac (Jr.) had 100 acres of land in Hampshire County on the drains of Patterson's Creek and Lick Run on Aug. 11, 1761; and 187 acres of land in Hampshire County on Nobly Mountains and the drains of Patterson's Creek on Aug. 12, 1761.

Three leases and releases are recorded in Hampshire County, (W.) Virginia:

(1) Lease- Mar 19, 1764, Frederick Ice of Hampshire Co., of the colony of Virginia and Robert Gregg.
(2) Lease- Oct 25, 1765, between Frederick Ice of Frederick Co., Maryland and John Greenfield of Frederick Co., VA; Release- Oct 26, 1765, between Frederick Ice and Eleanor his wife of Frederick Co., MD, and John Greenfield of Frederick Co., VA.
(3) Lease- Jan 31, 1791 between Frederick Ice and Eleanor his wife, of the County of Monongalia, VA, and Robert Kile of Hampshire Co., VA

He was still living in Hampshire Co., (W.) Virginia, on April 14, 1767, when the sale of his land in Maryland was finally consumated by a court order in that County. Later that summer, he moved from Hampshire Co., (W.) Virginia, to the District of West Augusta, Virginia (later to become Monongalia Co., (W.) Virginia, in 1776). He erected a block house and grist mill on the Cheat River at a place about 7 miles from the present town of Morgantown, W. Va., which was called "Ice's Ferry". His youngest son, David G. "Adam", was born here in August, 1767.

His will was written in Monongalia Co., (W.), Va., on February 29, 1788; this lists his dearly beloved wife, Ellen; son Andrew; son Abraham, son Adam, and William a tract of land on Buffalo Creek to be equally divided between them; grandson Jessey. No known probate record of this will.

Ice's Ferry was located outside of Morgantown, Fauquier County, Virginia on the Cheat River, settled by Frederick Ice in 1767. He ran a ferry there and George Washington was supposed to have crossed the Cheat River on his exploration of 1784. The site of the ferry is now covered by Cheat Lake, formed by the Cheat River Dam.
