      Some info on Isaac and his children and their descendants was taken from the Norman Genealogy website.

      I have seen 2 dates for Isaac's baptism Feb. 1, 1682 and Oct. 5, 1682. I don't know which is correct, so to simplify it I will go with the February one until I can find other proof. (DB)

      I am not positive of Kesiah, Jemima or Isaac Jr. birth dates. Needs more research. (DB)

      Isaac was granted 5 miles of land on the Potomac River "for services to the English Government". 1730 Isaac was in St. George Parish, Spotsylvania Co., VA.

      Isaac was the Great great grandfather of Charles Slaughter Morehead - Governor of Kentucky 1855 - 1859.

      Based on DNA testing, Isaac is related to Eli & Clement Norman, also Hiram Kindred Norman & Andrew Jackson Blancett. Per Liz Nash, Lincoln Co., GA., Norman Family.

      Letter found April 2006 @ Coshocton, Coshocton Co., OH. Public Library.
      Letter is dated Oct. 27, 1907, from Frank R. & Mary E. Norman of 763 Estes Ave, Rogers Park, Chicago, IL. to Mr. & Mrs, John R. Stainer, Fresno, OH.:

      Dear Cousins,
      Two hundred and seventy two years ago, to be exact, 27 Jul 1635, two English boys, John Norman, aged 20 Years, and Thomas Mason aged 19 years, sailed from England in a small ship named "Primrose" to make their home in the then wilderness of Virginia. These two boys may have been related for all I know. They no doubt became well acquainted with each other at least, for their voyage across the Atlantic must have lasted more than two months.

      I am unable to tell you much about Thomas Mason, for he was not so near to me, and I have studied his descendants less, but I can tell you a a great deal about John Norman. I will just say here, however, that these two brave English boys who forsook their homes and friends in England, braved a perilous ocean voyage and made their home among savage Indians in America, must be given credit for making possible the happy event at your home next Wednesday. John Norman located in St. Mary's County, Md. (then a part of Virginia) near the mouth of the Potomac River. Here he lived, married, reared a family, fought Indians, raised corn, tobacco, hogs and cattle, and had about 12 lawsuits with his neighbors, nearly all of which he won, until the year 1654, when he moved about 100 mi. north to Ann Arundel County, Md., near the Severn River, and here in 1656 our dear first American ancestor died, aged 41 years.

      Now this John Norman had among other children, a son, John Norman who remained in St. Mary's County Maryland. This second John Norman had children, among them one Isaac Norman, and Isaac Norman had children, among them one Courtney Norman, who was born about the year 1710, and Courtney Norman met a young Maryland lassie, named Mary Browning. Courtney loved Mary and Mary loved Courtney and he made her his wife. They moved across the Potomac River to Culpeper County, Va., near where is now located a small village named "Norman". Here they lived and died. Courtney Norman died about 1 Aug 1770. Courtney and Mary had the following children: a daughter named Amey, sons named John, Courtney, Reuben, Benjamin, William and Ezekiel.

      Now John Norman, son of Courtney, married and had children, among them one Benjamin Norman and this dear old Benjamin Norman, is buried on the farm he used to own. His grave is on a knoll about a quarter of a mile north of Reed's Rock on the canal below Orange, Coshocton County, Ohio. A tombstone marks the grave of himself and his second wife. He was born about 1760 in Culpeper County, Va.. He moved from there to Hampshire County, Va., where some of his children were born. He had about 15 children all told. No "race suicide" for him. His children by his first marriage were: Daniel, Jabez, Abraham, George, Isaac, Jacob, and three daughters, names unknown to me. His children by a second marriage were: William, Thomas, Andrew, Johnson and Rosa. Benjamin Norman moved from Hampshire County, Virginia to Harrison County, Ohio, and from there to Coshocton County, Ohio, about the year 1805. I am sure he was in Coshocton County on 2 Aug 1809, for his oldest son, Daniel Noman, (my grandfather) was married in the Keene Twp. on that date.

      Now, Isaac Norman, the fifth son of Benjamin Norman, met a girl named Isabel Wise, and Isaac was much pleased with Isabel and Isabel loved Isaac and he took her into his tent and loved her and she became his wife, and they had sons and daughters, John, Christian, Daniel, Sarah, Henry and Harriett.

      And John Norman, son of Isaac had sons and daughters: Hannah, Isaac, James Lester, Melissa and Hester. Hannah Norman married John R. Steiner, and they had children: Avery Charles, and Hester Nevada, and this is how John Norman, born in England in 1615 has made possible the happy event of next Wednesday.

      Thomas Mason located somewhere in Virginia and had many descendants who were very prominent citizens of Virginia. Mason County, Va. was probably so named in their honor. They were soldiers and statesmen of note. For about three generations immediately after the English boy, Thomas Mason, I am uninformed. But among the fourth generation was one Robert Mason married Eliza______, and Robert and ELiza Mason had a daughter, Eliza Mason, and she married Adam Gardner, and Adam and ELiza Gardner had a daughter, Eveline Gardner, and Eveline Gardner married William Dook, and they had a daughter Nancy Jane, and she married David Ewing, and they had sons and daughters, among them William and Althea, and William married Rose Guittard and they had Ethel Ewing, and Althea married Elisha Swigert and they had Frank Swigert, and this is how Thomas Mason, born in England in 1616, will meet his boyhood companion, John Norman, at Fresno, Ohio next Wednesday.

      Sincerely, your cousins
      Frank R. and Mary E. Norman
      763 Estes Ave.
      Rogers Park
      Chicago, Illinois
