|Notes: Isaac was descended from an early American pioneer family. His forefathers came
to Virginia from England and then, as the pioneer spirit again caught them, succeeding
generations moved to Kentucky. In Kentucky the family united by marriage with
the Coopers of Massachusetts and the Smiths of Kentucky.|
Isaac's father and mother were born near Bowling Green, Kentucky. They moved to Warren County, Illinois, where both died while their children were still small. The rest of the children's youth was spent under the tender care of a maiden aunt, Matilda Smith. Isaac had four brothers; Peter Franklin Butler was one of them.
In 1876 Isaac worked for William Fleming, his future father-in-law. Isaac married Emma Fleming in 1877. In 1895 he abandoned Emma and their five children.
Isaac was considered to be eccentric — but he was an expert in grafting trees.
In 1930, while living in Napa, California, Isaac reported himself to be a widower; however, his estranged wife Emma was then in fact still living.
Issac cut off a finger while splitting kindling and was taken to a hospital. He was bathed and shaved for surgery on his finger. When he awoke he suffered a stroke.
Isaac was buried under his brother Peter's headstone.
