Was Isaiah born in Jerusalem?


I was told that Isaiah was born in Jerusalem but cannot find the passage to verify it.  Is it true?


We know that Isaiah lived in Jerusalem because the places he was sent to and those who were sent to Isaiah all were in the area of Jerusalem (Isaiah 7:3; 22:15; 37:2). We know that Isaiah's father was Amoz, but which tribe they belonged to is not recorded. I know of no verse that states Isaiah's birthplace.
