B. Isaac Dubose, son of Peter Dubose, First, and his wife Magdalen, was b. ca.
1740 in South Carolina, and m. 8-29-1781 Sarah James, dau. of Benjamin James,
and is listed in his Will of 1797, probated in Jefferson Co., Georgia. In 1785
Isaac Dubose received a Grant of land on Rocky Comfort Creek, in Burke Co., Ga.,
and deeded this land to Robert Ward, also of Burke County.

Isaac Dubose went to Georgia from South Carolina in 1778 where he qualified as a
Deputy Surveyor, shown in the "Revolutionary Records of Georgia," Vol. 2,
1778-85, compiled under authority of the Legislature, page 35. Minutes of the
Georgia Executive Council, Jan. 14, 1778, to Jan. 6, 1785, show "Isaac Dubose
waited on the Board and qualified as Deputy Surveyor for the counties of
Chatham, Liberty, Effingham and Burke . . ." These were created from Parishes in
1777. When Isaac Dubose applied for a land grant he appeared before the Council
and stated that he himself with wife and one child had never obtained land in
the State of Georgia and was then applying for land for he intended to settle
without reservation April 5, 1784. Listed as Isaac Dubose of Burke Co., the
Petition showed he was entitled to 100 acres on his own head right. He was
granted land between 1785-1798 on Rocky Comfort Creek. The Counties he was
granted land in, and was a tax-payer of, were: Burke, Washington, Warren, and
Jefferson (created from Burke). In Burke, Washington and Jefferson Counties his
lands were along waters of Rocky Comfort Creek.

Tax Book "A" 1810-1811 of Baldwin Co., Ga., shows two Isaac Duboses paid taxes
there. It is believed one of these was the above Isaac Dubose who moved to
Alabama 1818/19. The records in Dallas Co., Ala., TRACT BOOK p. 310 show land
was granted Isaac Dubose 10-24-1818 and 2-15-1819 by the U. S. Government. This
was where Isaac Dubose moved and settled, near Selma, Alabama. Georgia
Department of Archives and History shows in the "Passport Volume" that Isaac
Dubose and his son, Peter Dubose, and his son-in-law, Francis Baker, applied for
permit for travel to the Westward country. Recommendation for Passport order was
taken 8-18-1804. Since they were going through Indian Lands a passport was
necessary. Baldwin and Washington counties were formed from old Creek Indian
lands. Though the passports were granted, records show Isaac Dubose and his
family did not go to Alabama until 1818/19. He moved to Dallas County, Ala., and
settled on the River Road to Burnsville, Alabama. His will dated 6-30-1824 is
recorded in Will Bk. A, p. 64 in the Dallas County Court House in Selma,
Alabama. The children of Isaac Dubose and his wife Sarah James Dubose were:

1. Peter Dubose, b. ca. 1782 in S. C., married 1st. ca. 1802 in Georgia. He went

visit regarding business. For the detailed records of this family see Mrs. Vera
Foster, Summit Ave., San Antonio, Texas. See also Jones Co., Ga., deed Bk "D"
