A Short Biography Of Isaiah…published in 1824. *Was Isaiah the son of Amos, or was he the son of Amoz? The following account was published in 1824–By 1842 many believed Amoz was the Prophet’s father.
1. “Though Isaiah ranks as the first in order and dignity of the four greater prophets, yet there are but few particulars of his life on record in the Scriptures, and little reliance is to be placed on tradition.
2. This eminent prophet was the son of Amos, and as some suppose, grandson of Joash, king of Judah; the time of his birth is unknown, but he entered on his mission about seven hundred and fifty-eight years before Christ.
4. As Isaiah’s writings relate more to this latter event than those of any other prophet of the Old Testament, he has been called, by way of distinction, the Evangelical Prophet, and his predictions have been frequently quoted by the New Testament writers.
5. Isaiah prophesied long, but the exact time is not agreed; they who suppose that he entered an this important office in the reign of Uzziah, make the period of his labours eighty-five years; but the most probable opinion is, that he commenced in the beginning of Jotham’s reign, which reduces the time of his public duty to only three-score years.
6. We have no authentic account of the time and manner of his death; tradition asserts, that he was sawn asunder at the command of that ungodly and cruel monster, Manasseh, in the first year of his reign, 698 years before Christ.
7. It is perhaps impossible to speak in higher terms of the beauty and sublimity of Isaiah’s prophecies than they deserve; but as bishop Lowth has most energetically described Isaiah’s style and character in his Lectures on the Poetry of the Hebrews, it may not be amiss to transcribe his words.
8. Isaiah abounds in such transcendant excellencies, that he may be properly said to afford the most perfect model of the prophetic style of poetry.
9. He is at once elegant and sublime, forcible and ornamented; he unites energy with copiousness, and dignity with variety.
10. In his sentiments there is uncommon elevation and majesty; in his imagery the utmost propriety, elegance, dignity, and diversity; in his language, uncommon beauty and energy; and notwithstanding the obscurity of his subjects, a surprising degree of clearness and simplicity.
11. To these we may add, there is such sweetness in the poetical composition of his sentences, whether it proceed from art or genius, that if the Hebrew poetry at present is possessed of any remains of its native grace and harmony, we shall chiefly find them in the prophecies of Isaiah.”—Sacred Biography, Or, The Lives of Eminent Men Whose Histories Are Recorded In The Holy Scriptures.—By G. Roberts; 1824. Read more about the Prophet Isaiah here. And from this link.

“I-sa’lah, in A. V. of N. T. Esalas, the Greek modification [Jehovah hath saved].
*A prophet of Judah in the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah…He was the son of Amoz, who must not be confounded with the prophet Amos. He lived in Jerusalem, and prophesied concerning Judah and Jerusalem; his prophecies concerning Samaria, Damascus, Philistia and other nations being subordinate to those which directly concerned Jerusalem, and being introduced because of their relation to Zion and the people of God.”—A Dictionary of the Bible; By JOHN D. DAVIS, Ph.D., D.D., LL.D. Professor of Oriental and Old Testament Literature in the Theological Seminary at Princeton, N.J. 1917.
