    A memorial to John James listed in Volume 11, pg 333 on September 23,1772 makes reference to Isaac Knighton's land on one side and Daniel Holliday on the other. 0030 002 0011 00333 04 (1)

    On February 11,1775 Isaac Knighton and wife Margaret of St. Mark's Parish sold to Moses Green 400 acres for L300.0.0 lawful money of South Carolina. This was the 400 acres he had received in the grant of February 11,1762. Witnessed by his son Thomas Knighton. 0007 001 04V 000313 00 (1)

    It would appear that Isaac moved at this time, to the area of Craven County that later became Fairfield District after the War. The only mention of him after this when he sold his property to William Dinkins in 1778. William Dinkins and Moses Knighton both appear in the Association list of mid 1775 with Daniel Holiday, Isaac's son-in-law, and the Jury list of 1778, but Isaac and his son's-in-law, John and Elijah Hollis do not.

    In 1778 Isaac sold all of his land on the high hills (Sumter Co.) to William Dinkins Book X-4 1778, page 139 0017 001 04X0 00139 00 (1)
