Isaac married Catharine Rowe (1753–1828). They had children John 1782, Mary, Sarah 1788, Eliza 1797, and Wyan 1817. He had a saw and grist mill in town “on the turnpike east of the flatts” in 1790, the same year that he was a deacon of the Re-formed Church. In 1794, 1802, and 1815 he was an elder. In 1787 he was a “kirk meister”—an old term which was replaced by Secretary of the Consistory. Sometime after 1799, he owned pew #19. He died November 2nd, 1821 at 75 years of age.
There is another Isaac Davis born and died about the same time from Ulster County, so there is a possibility that the service is not correct. Enough data on Rhinebeck’s Isaac Davis that would help shed light on who is who could not be located for this pub-lication.
