Plantation Isabella Furnace

I would like to find out the "location" of Plantation Isabella Furnace.
My ancestor Frederick/Frederich Decius/Decious/Tissues was in Shenandoah Co., VA by 1788 and probably before.
The first record of Frederich in the area is 30 May 1788, when his marriage bond to Magdaline HEISTAND is recorded. Frederick and his wife Magdelina are listed in Jacob HIESTAND's will as heirs & on 12 Jun 1788, the heirs sold the 167 acres of land they inherited to John Heistand.
Tax records and deeds show that his property was located 21 mi. SE of Woodstock, VA, in Dry Run, a small valley between the Shenandoah River and the Massanutten Range.
Other land recorded for him was a 300 ac. survey made 20 Mar 1810, and paid by Treasury warrant #5552, on 30 Dec. 1815, recorded 1818 to Frederick Dicious and Richard Rainsbottom, Shenandoah Co. Deed Book pg.341/342. He also recd. deeds of 50 ac. conveyed to him by the commonwealth by Treasury Warrant # 5552 granted 1818 pg. 350, surveyed Dec. 1815 & 100ac. Treasury Warrant #5419 surveyed July 1815, granted 1818 pg. 351/352.

In the 1830 census records, Frederich is noted as living in Plantation Isabell Furnace. I thought that Isabella Furnance was relating to a Iron Works?? Was there also a "settlement" called Isabella Furnace.

Thank You,
