Birth: Apr. 12, 1825
Columbus
Chenango County
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 8, 1912
Springville
Susquehanna County

Son of Henry & Sally Fletcher Button. Husband of Mary Ann Burdick. Father of 9 children . . .

Isaac purchased 102 acres of virgin forest in the East Lymne District, Springville, PA in 1849. The first year he cleared enough land to build a cabin on the Northwest side of what is now Garrison Road. His wife, Mary Ann Burdick, said the cabin was three-sided. She helped split shingles, did the work inside and used scrap wood to keep a fire going on the open side to scare away animals. The next year he built a permanent home on a hillside on the southeast side of the property. He was the grandson of two Revolutionary War soldiers. Joseph Button and John Fletcher.

He had two farms, one on Meshoppen Creek Road and another on Pond Brook Road that was originally the Fletcher Farm, where he was living in 1870 and died there in 1912.
