  1. This “Isaac Shelby Alexander” is not the Isaac that Married Chloe Ballard. The Isaac that married Chloe Ballard was born in 1763 as he states, and she later confirms in their applications for Rev War pensions applications (found on this site). Isaac (that married Chloe) also states that he was born in Tyrrell County, NC. I learned something here: didn’t know about the Thomas Jefferies marriage. TY
