Ike was born the seventh of ten children. His parents, Caleb and Anna Fell Taylor, were Quakers. He married Mary Adella Hoffman on 8 April 1880 in St. Petersburg, Pennsylvania, and they had four girls: Anna, Maud, Iza, and Bess. In 1885, he brought his family to Ohio and formed a company known as Taylor, Potter, & Orr that drilled the second oil well in the Findlay, Ohio district. Isaac was a well-known, accomplished artist and studied with George Hetzel and Dr. T. Herron Stewart. He painted two murals, one of the Wood County oil boom days and one of Fort Meigs, in the Bowling Green, Ohio, courthouse. He also had an oil painting displayed in the 1924 International Petroleum Exposition in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ike did quite a bit to preserve the history of the Wood County oil industry through his paintings. At one time he was mayor of Bowling Green and was elected to several terms as a councilman. An exhibition of his paintings was held in Bowling Green State University's McFall Center Gallery in 1983. Ike died in 1930 from dementia at the age of 8 days short of his eighty-sixth birthday.
