I is for Isaac

My great-great-great grandfather, Isaac Wagstaff, was born in 11 October 1787 in Northill, Bedfordshire, England.  He married Mary Bathsheba Gullians on 12 October 1808.  He became the head gardener and landscaper for Esquire Harvey and lived with his family in the the cottage pictured below, located on the Harvey Estate. The information found at  www.familysearch.org shows that he and Mary were the parents of 11 children, including my great great grandfather, JohnWagstaff, who later emigrated to the United States.  Isaac died on 25 February 1844 at the age of 56 in Northill, with his family gathered around his bedside.
