ISAAC SHULL,(JR) farmer and stock-grower, Nevins township, P.O. Rosedale, Parke County,
was born in East Tennessee, September 19, 1825, the fifth in the family of eight children of:
Isaac (Sr.) and Ellen ( Keeny ) Shull, former a native of North Carolina, latter of Tennessee.
(1. William ,1811) (2. Sarah, 1816 ) ( 3. Levina, 1819 ) (4. ) (5. Isaac Jr.,1825 ) ( 6. John, 1826 ) (7. Rebecca, 1828 ) (8. )
other than Isaac, Jr. all the others are speculation

They were of German and Irish descent.
The father, who was a farmer, came to this county from Tennessee about 1833,
and settled on the farm where Isaac was reared. Isaac, Sr. died in Vigo County in 1856.

Isaac Shull(Jr) received what little education he had in the old-fashioned log school-house, has made a success of farming,
and has performed a great deal of hard labor, all that he owns having been accumulated by honest toil.
He has 171 acres of well-improved and well stocked land.

Mr. Shull(JR) has now retired, and his sons, of whom he is very proud, attend to the farm, both being excellant farmers.
Mr. Shull has been twice married, the first time to Miss Mary, daughter of John McKee. *
She lived, however, but a short time after her marriage,
and he was then married to Miss Mary A., daughter of Benjamin and Catherine ( James ) Wiloughby,
which union has been blessed with seven children, four of whom are living -- two daughters and two sons, viz.:
Charles T(P). , born in Nevins township, August 1, 1863;
Benjamin S., born December 27, 1865, also in Nevins township;
Mary Belle, now the wife of Josephus Tarvin,and
Leora, who is at home

Both the sons are farmers and stock-growers, and both are Republicans in politics.
Mrs. Shull died in 1875, a member of the Christian Church.
Mr. Shull is a Republican, and is a member of the Republican party.

#5: son Isaac Jr., was born in East Tennessee 19 Sept 1825.
