Biographical sketch

On 30 November 1812 Isaiah married Daphne Haynes at North Hero, Grand Isle County, Vermont. Daphne was the daughter of William and Polly Stoddard Haynes. She was born 29 August 1797 in North Hero. Their first child, Melissa, was born there on 2 February 1814.

Isaiah was a soldier in the War of 1812. He served under General Dearborn. He was wounded at the Battle of Plattsburg, New York, on 11 September 1814. When Daphne heard the guns of battle she put her baby and some bandages and medicine into a boat and traveled twenty miles to the scene of action just in time to see the British flag go down. Isaiah's hearing was damaged from being so close to the cannons.

Their second daughter, Emily, was born in North Hero on 31 August 1816. Later, Isaiah ran a lumber operation on the St. Lawrence River in northern New York.

Isaiah and his family moved to Salem, Ashtabula County, Ohio, where Isaiah was sheriff for awhile. Jacob was born there on 2 April 1819 and Olive was born on 7 May 1821. Then they moved to Geauga County, a wilderness covered with a heavy growth of timber. It took twenty days of hard work to clear one acre of land. In about three years the stumps would rot and the soil could then be plowed. Isaiah was overseeing some gristmills there. Three more children were born while the family was in Munson, Ohio: Adeline on 18 September 1823, Obed on 25 October 1825, and Alsen on 28 April 1827.

The family next moved to LaFayette, Wisconsin. Western Historical Company's 1882 publication "History of Walworth County" states "Isaiah Hamblin, first settler in the town, a native of the state of Ohio...came to LaFayette, Wisconsin in the month of June, 1836, and settled on the southeast quarter of section twenty-five on July 18. The logs for his house being ready, the settlers from neighboring towns turned out to assist him in "raising" the first house in the town of LaFayette." His daughter, Olive, married Henry Johnson in LaFayette's first wedding.

Daphne and Isaiah joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in April 1845, and by early 1847 they were making preparations to leave for Council Bluffs. Just as they were ready to leave, Daphne became ill. She died on 5 April 1847 and was buried along the trail in Pottawattamie County, Iowa with only a crude marker for her grave.


Although Daphne's name appears on the marker at her husband's grave, it is merely a memorial. She was buried in an unmarked grave along the wagon trail on the way to Council Bluffs.
