They initially lived in Loudoun County. In 1806 they lived in Fauquier County where they began a family. He discontinued his medical practice and turned to politics, serving in the Virginia House of Delegates in Richmond from 1810 to 1812. At the urging of his father, Isaac moved his family in 1817 to Philadelphia. Around 1822, the family moved back to Prince William County. He died of pneumonia in 1829.

Husband of Judith Carter, her granddaughter Landon Carter, Sr., who lived in Richmond County's Sabine Hall, and great-granddaughter of Robert "King" Carter, one of the wealthiest men in colonial Virginia, who died in 1732 owning some one thousand slaves and three hundred thousand acres of prime farmland.
