Isaiah Bunker was born in Barnstead, NH, the son of Jonathan Bunker and his wife Sarah Runnels. His first wife (by whom he had at least nine children) was Judith Smith of Pittsfield NH. Isaiah and his family lived for some time in Stanstead, Quebec Province, Canada, but returned to Gilmanton in Chittenden Co. NH after Judith's death in Canada c1812.
By the early 1820s, it appears Isaiah had followed his older sons west to the Hillsboro area of eastern Addison Co. VT.
Soon after his move to Vermont, Isaiah remarried to widow Hannah Lord. He and a female of an age to be his wife are recorded in the 1840 Addison County federal census; the 1850 census shows Isaiah and Hannah and 1855 Starksboro records show that Isaiah (aged 86) and his wife Hannah [Lord] were guaranteed support for life and deeded land in Starksboro, on the farm where Cyrus Taft (husband of granddaughter Mary Adelaide Bunker Taft) lived for "one ear of Indian corn." He (age 98–age incorrect) and wife Hannah (age 70) are enumerated in household of Russell Downing, S. Starksboro, in the 1860 census. Starksboro vital records show that widower and "pauper" Isaiah Bunker, 96, a farmer, died of "old age" in December 1865.
