  • Born: 1845, Missouri
  • Marriage: Sophia ANDERSON

bullet  Noted events in his life were:

1. Census: 1870, Sebastian County, Arkansas. 1

Shipman, Isaac, 25, M, W, Farmhand, --/$150, MO, No Right to Vote*
Shipman, Sophie, 24, F, W, Keep House, MO

*Column 20 is so marked for Green Berry Anderson, Isaac Shipman and Taylor Anderson, but not John Anderson (John should probably be checked again), in the 1870 census for Sebastian Co., AR. That column's heading reads as follows: "Male Citizens of U. S. of 21 years of age and upwards, whose right to vote is denied or abridged on other grounds than rebellion or other crimes." Perhaps, they had not lived long enough in Sebastian County to satisfy a residency requirement. Note that a pro forma 1870 census form indicates a mark in this column signified the person was eligible to vote. Query.


Isaac married Sophia ANDERSON, daughter of Richard ANDERSON and Martha. (Sophia ANDERSON was born between 1844 and 1846 in Lawrence County, Missouri 1 2 3.)
