Isaac was born in Bridgewater, CT to Asher and Eunice (Blackman) Babbitt of Bridgewater. He attended local schools and was an exceptional student but his father couldn't afford higher education and sent him off to a relative in New Haven, CT to learn the carpentry and joinery trade (joinery is precision work, like cabinet and furniture making). Although spending most of his time in New Haven, he somehow met petite Sarah Cole of Kent, CT and they eventually married in New Haven where he was now working at his trade. Both Isaac and Sarah desperately wanted to return to beautiful, rural Litchfield County, and raise a family on their own little farm. It wasn't long before they moved back to Bridgewater, bought a small farm and had two boys who both eventually went on to Harvard for their PhD degrees in classical languages. Although there was some tragedy in the childrens lives, Isaac and Sarah contentedly lived out their years on their comfortable farm. Isaac had done quite well as a carpenter and cabinetmaker too. He also served as a member of the Connecticut State Legislature at Hartford in 1883. Although he had limited schooling, from all accounts Isaac was a self-educated, highly intelligent and wise man. Sarah Cole Babbitt also was well spoken and intelligent. Isaac died in 1888 and Sarah died ten years later. Both are buried in Bridgewater Center Cemetery at the Babbitt family plot with some of their children and grandchildren. Isaac and Sarah were the last of the Babbitts in Bridgewater.
