About Isaac Vick

From Joseph Vick of Lower Parish, Isle of Wight, Virginia and His Descendants, vol. 1

pp 89-92

ISAAC3 VICK (William2, Josephl) was born about 1725-1730 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He died in Northampton County, North Carolina between 1786 and 1790.

Isaac remains one of the most elusive figures in the Vick genealogy. According to Col. Arthur, he witnessed an indenture between his brother Simon and Edward Brantley in 1745, but this document has not been found. l He was apparently of age by 8 October 1747, when he witnessed two deeds between John Newberry, millwright, and John Hamer and betweenJohnNewberryandMorganBrown2 in Anson County. Perhap she had been apprenticed to Newberry and went to North Carolina in his charge. He does not seem to have owned land in Anson County; however, his probable son Aaron later owned land there.

Isaac returned to Virginia and either farmed or practiced a trade. On 14 June 1759 an attachment was filed against him by John Powell. The court decided the attachment could not be served since Isaac "hath privately removed himself and so absconds that the ordinary process of law cannot be served on him for a debt ...".3 However, he was in the county in 1763 because he won a suit brought there against Simon Turner. John Day agreed to pay the damages for the defendant.4

Ultimately Isaac chose to settle in Northampton County, North Carolina. On 28 March 1774, he purchased 300 acres from William Burns. The land was described as situated on Correry or Corriroy Swamp at the mouth of Long Branch and included "houses, orchards, gardens, and woods".5 However, he did not remain there long, for on 25 February l778,he sold the tract to John Wilkinson.6 Later, on 7 September 1778, described as being "of Northampton County," he named his "well-beloved and trusty friend James Terry, son of William Terry, his attorney in Anson and any county in the WS to demand and receive anything justly belonging to me, in particular six negroes in Anson County". The document was witnessed by John Wade, Martha Wade and William Coleman.?

When his father died in 1778, Isaac received only an equal share of his father's plantation, which was to be divided at the death of his mother. This suggests that he was one of the younger children and had been given his inheritance when he moved to North Carolina. His last recorded appearance is on a 1786 tax list of Capt. Bennett' s District in Northampton County. He was a white male over 60, living alone. Living near him was Martha Vick, presumably his daughter-in-Iaw.8 He does not appear in the 1790 federal census.

Nothing is known of Isaac's wife or wives. He may have married [?Mary Coleman] of Anson County. William Coleman was a witness to Isaac's assigning power of attorney to James Terry in 1778. On 11 March 1778, a Mary Vick witnessed a deed between William and Patience and John Coleman.9 Aaron Vick, Isaac's apparent son, proved a deed between Thomas and John Coleman on 15 April 1772.10 It is also possible that Mary was Aaron's wife.

Since there is no will or probate record, Isaac's children, born in ether Anson or Northampton County, North Carolina, are speculative:

[?]AAROW, b. ca. 1745; m. [ ].

[?]ROBERT, b. ca. 1750; m. MARY [ ].

[?]JACOB, b. ca. 1755; m. MARY [ ].

[?]JESSE, b. ca. 1758; d. after 1783, probably in Northampton County, North Carolina. He m. MARTHA STEPHENSON. Jesse appears only once in Northampton County records as witness to the will of Nicholas Judkins on 22 February 1783, along with Abraham Stephenson and Joseph Strickling. Martha was the daughter ofArthur Stephenson and was identified in his will as Martha Vick. She was a widow in 1786 when she appears as a taxable in Capt. Bennett's District. She lived near both Isaac Vick and Abraham, Arthur and William Stephenson. Her household consisted of two females. On 4 October 1792, she sold 10 acres to David Parker. Three years later she sold two tracts of land to Jesse Britton or Brittain. On 5 May 1798, she sold 53 acres to Thomas Martin. Child, surnamed Vick: Anna, b. ca. 1777, who sold property rights on 12 February 1812.11

[Other possible children: Isaiah, b. ca. 1750, and John, living in Beaufort County, North Carolina in 1780 - see Appendix II.]
