I know this is an old posting, but I wanted to provide additional info on this. Israel Sikes was the son of John Sikes of New Hanover Co NC. He left a will in 1790, proven in April 1791, naming Israel, to whom he left all of his shoemaker's tools. Also named were Jonathan, Joseph, Isaiah, Jesse, Judith, Sarah, Easom?(Exsom?), and wife Martha. This John Sikes settled along South River in New Hanover Co. NC circa 1760, and had previously lived in Edgecombe Co NC. He appears in Edgecombe Co records as early as 1730.
According to a Hall's Wilmington Gazette in 1798, he was 95 years old when he died "some years ago". I believe he was probably married more than once, and likely had older sons Josiah, James, John, Jacob, and Joshua, not named in his will.
