In abt. 1885 Isabella married Colonel Richard J. Hinton, anti-slavery advocate, associate of John Brown (Harper's Ferry), and noted journalist, author and politician. She was interested in the occult, mysticism, the power of mind and spirit over body, and "soul circles." She was well-educated, involved with women's issues, and assisted her husband with his activities. She was politically active, including being elected as Vice President of the Progressive Labor Party in New York in September 1887.
