  • Notes 
    • RESIDENCE-- James Isaac resided at Schodack for awhile, where his first child was born. He then moved his family to the town of Caldwell (Lake George), Warren, NY, which is a little north of Lake George Village (actually near Martin's Swamp on Tooth Pick Ridge.) His remaining children were born here.

      OCCUPATION-- James followed in the footsteps of his father, Isaac R., becoming a member of the contracting and building business which, in turn, was carried on by his sons.
