Help Me!

I would like to start gathering data on two lines that branch off my Ison line.

The Names I would like info on are DobbinsAnd Hamiltonof Kentucky and Virginia.

Hettie Hamilton, (b:abt 1804, Probably in Tenn.) married my Great Great Grand Father, William Ison (b:abt 1805, Probably in Virginia). They are parents of my Great Grandfather, Ira Ison (b:april 26, 1829) who married Helen Dobbins (b:probably about 1829 also) and both Probably born in kentucky.

One of their sons George Washington Ison (My Grandfather)(b: abt 1861) married Annie Creech (b:April 12 1867 in Stephens, Elliot Co. KY). They were married May 23 1885 in Elliot Co. KY. Chances are that G.W. Ison was born there too.Helen Dobbins and Ira Ison lived in Carter and Elliot Counties in Kentucky. Below is part of the Descendant tree involving the above families.

The Names in red are direct anscestors.
