Hi, I am also researching Sarah Elliott and Isaac Jesiop. I can't confirm this information but a family tree on Ancestry.com relates an entire story about the family including the following:
The father of Isaac Jessup(Jessiop), a Methodist minister, came from England to settle on the coast in Perquimans County, North Carolina. There Isaac was born September 25, 1805. His father died when he was quite young and he was “bound out” to a man who mistreated him until a Mr. Elliot, who had been a friend of Isaac’s father, took him into his home. He attempted to teach him the ship building trade. One of his sons, Cam Elliot, went as far down the coast as Charleston, South Carolina plying his trade. But, Isaac had no hand for this work. When he was twenty-one, he was to receive a horse, saddle, and supply of clothing. But before he reached this age, he eloped with Sarah Ann (Sallie) Elliot. She had never worked and never did learn. Her parents sent her old colored nanny to her in the mountains of North Carolina (the same nurse who had helped her bathe and dress for elopement). When their son, Winslow, was three years old, they went northward via the Cumberland Gap and crossed over the Ohio River into Ohio. Seven children were born to them: Winslow, Thomas, William, Hugh, Miriam, Francis, Sophia, Evelyn and Mary. The Jessups moved from Xenia, Ohio to Howard County, Indiana and settled between Sims and Converse, Indiana. In 1873, Isaac furnished the land and lumber for building the Poplar Grove Methodist Protestant Church. The church was torn down some time in the 1940’s.
I have separately confirmed the Poplar Grove information and the children, except Winslow.
I have also created a website with information on the Jessup/Jesiop family:
It includes photos of Isaac and Sarah:
I've also found the burials for some of the family, which I've posted here:
Hope some of this helps.
