Isaac Arnn was probably the youngest son of Abraham Arnn, Sr. He first married
Polly Walker, daughter of Elisha and Judy Walker, on 7 Feb 1797. The only known
child of this marriage was Susan Arnn who married Preston Edds on 12 Dec 1818
and moved to Saline, AR. Isaac's second marriage was to
Elizabeth Fuller, daughter of Zachariah and Letty Fuller, on 20 Dec 1802. Theirs
was not a happy marriage. Records show that Isaac was brought into court and jailed
a number of times. Most often, he was charged with failing to 'keep the peace
and maintain good behavior towards all citizens and especially his wife, Elizabeth'.
Isaac served as a 2nd Lieutenant in a company of Artillery of the 1st Regiment
in the state militia. The administrator for Isaac's estate was qualified on 19
