"Isenhour, Newman, Hopewell, was born in Hopewell in 1841, a son of Jacob, who was a son of Leonard, a native of Pennsylvania, who came to Seneca in 1807. He built the Flint grist-mill, was a soldier in the Revolution, and was taken prisoner at Jersey City. He died in 1816. Jacob Isenhour, a native of Pennsylvania, was born October 28, 1796. His wife was Mary, daughter of Elisha Newman, an early settler of Seneca, and they had three sons and three daughters. He died in Hopewell, September 26, 1875, and his wife, August 3, 1882. Newman Isenhour has been a farmer, except ten years, during which he manufactured headings and staves. In 1864 he married Cornelia Brizzee, born in Seneca in 1845, a daughter of Cornelius and Susan (Thatcher) Brizzee, who had two sons and two daughters. The grandparents of Cornelia were Cornelius and Sarah (Van Benschoten) Brizzee, early settlers of Hopewell. Mr. Isenhour and wife have had two children: M. Newman, who resides in Elkhart, Ind.; and Maude E., at home. Mr. Isenhour is a republican."
