You list this Jacob as the father of Isaac Clifford, born abt 1824, who was married to Kent, Lowry, Redman. I haven't seen any evidence yet that substantiates Jacob being the father of Isaac. I have no evidence as to which of Isaac Clifford's sons was the father of Isaac born abt 1824. Isaac Clifford born abt 1824 first appears in Hardy Co. personal property tax lists in the mid-1840's. Do you have some evidence to support Jacob as the father to Isaac Clifford born abt 1824?
I'm not familiar with Turney as one of Isaac's wives. Can you tell me about her?
The Virginia personal property tax lists (PPTL) taken between 1782 and 1800 actually listed fpc as white. Some counties wrote for instance (FN) after each name, but Hardy Co. did not. Beginning with the 1801 PPTL, counties were supposed to make a separate list titled "List of Free Negroes and Mulatoes". In some years the tax collector wrote the names of everyone in the household and their occupations. In some years the list even includes the name of the person whose land they are living on, or whether they owned their own land. This is where I pick up the names of John Redman's other children. The PPTL from 1782 through 1850 have been microfilmed. They are available through the Library of Virginia and the Family History Library. Hardy Co. was formed from Hampshire in 1786, so coverage for the Hardy Co. area is part of the Hampshire PPTL from 1782-1785. There were also two VA state census that covered the Hardy area, 1782 and 1784. You can see a transcription of both of these state census on the Mineral Co., WV GenWeb site.
