Isaac Clifford Carrick follows farming in Montrose Township, upon a farm of fifty-six acres situated on section 36, near the town of Summitville. Lee County numbers him among her native sons, his birth having occurred in Jackson Township on the 29th of September, 1882. He comes of a family of English lineage. His grandfather, William Carrick, was a native of England and a farmer boy of that country. He and a brother came to the United States together, landing in New York, where the brother died soon afterward of cholera. William Carrick began work in a vineyard owned by a Mr. Burnham and continued in his employ for several years, or until his marriage. He wedded Mary Sulina and afterward came to Iowa, settling in Montrose Township, Lee County, where he purchased and developed a farm, devoting many years to the cultivation and improvement of that property. Eventually he retired from active business life, selling his farm, and took up his abode in Keokuk, where his last days were spent. His wife also passed away in that city about 1887, at the age of fifty-one years. She had long survived her husband, who was born about 1826 and who died in 1862. Their children were: James Burnham; Hiram, who is living in the city of Fresno, California; Ida, the wife of James Chenoweth, of Keokuk; and William, who married Miss Anderson and resides in Peoria, Illinois.

James Burnham Carrick, the father of Isaac C. Carrick, was born on the old homestead farm in Summitville on the 3d of February, 1856. He attended the Summitville and Reed schools, his first teacher being Lottie Mooney. When he had mastered the branches of learning taught in the district schools he attended the old high school of Keokuk, taught by Mrs. Kilbourne. The experiences of his youth were such as usually fall to the lot of the farm lad. From an early age he began assisting in the development of the old homestead farm in Jackson Township and became familiar with every feature of farm life. Eventually he started out in business on his own account, first renting land in Jackson Township and afterward cultivating different rented farms for nine years. On the 29th of February, 1898, he purchased a farm from Robert Jewett and has since greatly improved this place. It comprises one hundred and three acres of rich and productive fields, in the midst of which stand fine buildings. In 1901 he erected his present residence, a two-story house containing eight rooms. He has also built substantial barns and other buildings, there being no buildings upon the place when it came into his possession. He has also set out orchards and, in fact, carried forward every feature of farm work that results in the attainment of success. He deserves much credit for what he has accomplished, for he started out in life empty-handed when eighteen years of age. Leaving home, he went west to Kansas, where he spent one year, but, not liking it, he returned to Lee County and, as previously indicated, began for himself by renting land. Today he is one of the substantial farmers of the county, owning a property which is valuable and from which he derives a substantial annual income.

On the 25th of December, 1881, Mr. Carrick was united in marriage to Miss Maria Van Ausdall, who was born August 29, 1851, in Eaton, Preble County, Ohio. Her great-grandparents were Peter and Rachel Van Ausdall, who spent their last days in Ohio. Her father, Isaac Van Ausdall, was born in Pennsylvania, but in his early boyhood was taken by his parents to Ohio, and in that state was united in marriage to Miss Eliza Grafft. In 1853 they arrived in Lee county, Iowa, settling in Jackson Township, about two miles east of where the Carrick home was established. Mr. Van Ausdall followed butchering in Ohio, but carried on farming after coming to this county, and he and his wife spent their remaining days upon the old homestead farm. Their children were as follows : Peter, David and Martin, all now deceased; Rachel, the wife of Henry Smith of Indiana; Caroline, who became Mrs. L. W. Hawkins and has passed away; Mary, who became the second wife of L. W. Hawkins and now lives in Indiana; Mrs. Carrick; John, deceased; Isaac, living in Oklahoma; Harvey, a resident of Lee County; Lydia and Hattie, twins, the latter the wife of Roy Brown of Lake Charles, Louisiana; and Lillie, the wife of Robert Kerr of Warsaw, Illinois.

Mrs. James B. Carrick was but two years of age when brought to Iowa by her parents, who settled in Jackson Township, where she was reared and educated, attending the public schools. She remained at home until she gave her hand in marriage to James Burnham Carrick, who then rented the Judge Chenoweth farm, upon which they took up their abode. They became the parents of a son and daughter, Isaac Clifford and Mary E., the latter the wife of William Younkin, of Montrose, by whom she has two sons. Glen and Stewart. The father has always given his political allegiance to the Democratic Party and has served as road supervisor.

Upon the old home farm Isaac Clifford Carrick was reared and acquired his education in the district schools and the schools of Keokuk. His text-books were put aside when he reached the age of seventeen or eighteen years. He continued upon the home farm until twenty-two years of age, giving his father the benefit of his services, and was married on the 6th of February, 1908, to Miss Gladys Fay Struthers, a daughter of William and Ella (Kite) Struthers.

At the time of his marriage Mr. Carrick purchased a sixty acre farm adjoining his father's place and thereon resided for three years. He next bought a farm of two hundred and twelve acres in Summitville and continued upon that place for three years. At the end of that time he invested in his present property, which is a farm of fifty-six acres on section 36, Montrose Township. This is one of the prettiest farms in his section of the county. It is pleasantly located, carefully cultivated and well improved and gives every evidence in its excellent appearance of the careful, practical and progressive supervision of the owner.

To Mr. and Mrs. Carrick have been born three children: Dorothy Maria, six years of age; Hugh Isaac, aged four; and William Earl, a little lad of two summers. The parents hold membership in the United Presbyterian church, in the work of which they take an active and helpful part, Mr. Carrick serving at the present time as one of its trustees. In politics he is a stalwart democrat, and fraternally he is connected with the Modern Woodmen of America. He also belongs to the Anti-Horsethief Association No. 230. He represents one of the old families of the county, established here in pioneer times by his grandparents, and the work instituted by his grandfather and continued by his father is now being carried on by him, the family having through three generations been prominently connected with the agricultural development of Lee County.
