About Isaac Brevoort

Thomas Bull’s daughter Chloe came to the Clintonville, Ohio area with her husband Isaac Brevoort and son Henry around 1812. Isaac Brevoort was helping build a barn across the Olentangy River and was crossing the flood-swollen river in February 1814 when his boat was swamped and he drowned.

from: Clintonville History by Shirley Hyatt

Isaac and Chloe had two children: 1. Jason Francis Brevoort who married Sarah (Sefton) Brevoort on 27 August 1836 in Vincennes, Knox Co., Indiana 2. Henry Isaac Brevoort who married Angeline Maria (Hunt) Brevoort on 18 December 1834 in Clinton Township, Franklin Co., Ohio

Isaac Brevoort was either transporting household goods or returning home from a barn raising when he drowned in the Whetstone River, now called the Olentangy River. According to family historian Henry Armstrong Brevoort (1904-1982), "He was buried in the rear of what is now [a house on] Kenworth Road, Columbus, Ohio." Per descendant Joseph Brevoort Landon (1893-1979): "He was buried at the top of a ravine at the rear of [a house on] Kenworth Road, Col. O."
