  • Notes 
    • According to Judson Councill, Isaac is found in Knox Co., Tennessee as early as 1811. He and Susan were married in Roane Co., Tennessee. They moved from Tennessee to Jackson Co., Alabama, then to Madison Co., Alabama. Eventually, they moved on to Arkansas, where both died at the home of their son John in Franklin Co., Arkansas.

      In order to figure out the Council family and its connection to the Hodges Councils in Alabama, I need to track its movements through Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas for this family and its descendants.

      In the 1830 Census, the family is listed as 1 male 40-50, 1 female 40-50, 1 male 20-30, 2 males 10-15. Both girls are already out of the house at this point. Presumably, the male age 20-30 is Uriah. On page 333 of the 1830 census is Jesse Council, whose household includes 1 male 90-100 and 1 female 60-70 and no one else. This is a likely connection for Isaac's father.

      In the 1840 Census, the family is listed as 1 male 50-60, 1 female 50-60, 1 male 20-30. Immediately next door is John Council(00011-00001). Chances are that this is the son John.

      Some have suggested Isaac was born in Tennessee, but in the 1860 census, he reports as being from N. Carolina.

      Unfortunately, census from Tennessee for 1800, 1810, 1820 are pretty much missing.

      Over the time that we are looking for the Councils & Allisons, the area went from Green County, NC to State of Franklin to State of TN. And it appears that these folks were along the borders of Green, Knox, & Roane counties. Looks like the Allisons ended up in the part that became Roane but maybe the Councils were in Knox.

      Hypothesis for now: (2019-06-14)
      Jesse Council is the father of Isaac. Jesse is married to Elizabeth. These two stay close together for several years.
      Hodges, John, and Matthew may be other sons or brothers to Jesse. Hodges is married to Rachel.
