Moses William Isenhower was born in 1823 in Cape Girardeau County, Missouri to John D. and Sarah Bailey Isenhower who had traveled to Missouri from Lincoln County, North Carolina about 1821. John and Sarah had married in Lincoln County on 3 Feb 1811. Many German families from North Carolina settled in Cape Girardeau because land was free. Moses’ father John died in 1844 in Cape Girardeau County, Missouri leaving a will naming his family members. In the will Moses received hogs, a saddle, a rifle, cow, gray mare, sheep and after the death of his mother he was to receive one half of the balance of the plantation. This family can be traced to Hans Nicholas Isenhower, immigrant to Pennsylvania from Germany in 1741. It is of this same Hans Nicholas family that President Dwight D. Eisenhower (Isenhower) descends. The name Isenhower translated in English as “Iron-cutter” and is shown on early deeds as such.
