Isaac J. "Ike" Withrow
Birth: Aug. 15, 1873
Nova Scotia, Canada
Death: Mar. 21, 1961
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA

Isaac J. Withrow was known as Ike. He was the son of John and Mary Ann (Blois) Withrow. He was born in Stanley, Hants Co., Nova Scotia. He emigrated from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia on the vessel 'Prince Arthur' to Boston, Massachusetts on April 12, 1900. He later found work at Ginn & Company Publishers in Cambridge, Mass, where he worked until retirement.
On Jan 30, 1909 he married Mary "May" Cripps, daughter of John and Margaret (Moran) Cripps of Chatham, New Brunswick, Canada. They had six children, 5 of which survived infancy: Lillian Beatrice, Stanley Cripps, Cora Elizabeth, Winston Earl, Infant Boy, and Hilda May. Their youngest child, Hilda, was born only 13 months before Mary succumbed to the effects of Influenza in the 1918 Flu Pandemic. Ike did his best to raise the family without the help of a wife, relying on relatives for help. He lived until 1961, residing for many years in Arlington, Ma.
