Isabel was born in West Houses, Edinburg, Midlothian, Scotland, the second child to David and Helen Haswell Deans. Her father died when she was an infant. Her mother Helen was a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, (It is unknown whether her father,David, had joined the faith also.) In 1849 at age 3 she emigrated with her mother and brother to America. Presumably they landed in New Orleans and travelled by steamboat to St. Louis. There in St. Louis while preparing for the long journey west, her mother married another Scotsman and convert to the Church named Archibald McNeil. By 1853 they were in Salt Lake City. The next several years were spent primarily in Salt Lake City and Pleasant Grove, Utah. In 1861 the family pioneered again in St. George, Washington County. Her step father was a highly respected craftsman and builder.
At the age of 19, Isabel married a craftsman/builder by the name of Ephraim Wilson. They are the parents of Agnes Wilson Frei
