Isaac and Sarah married in 1862, and had been married for 38 years when Isaac passed away.

By 1870, Isaac and Sarah had begun to their family, and were living in Chinese Camp where Isaac was a miner. Their children were S. J. (daughter), Charles A. who was born May 1865, Rachel A. who was born March 1867, George, and by 1880, Emma and Frank, who was born January 1880.
