Isaiah can be found in a variety of directories from 1853 to 1906 in Manhattan and Brooklyn.  The directories frequently list both his business and residential addresses, as well as confirm his occupation as a cooper.  He starts both living and working in Manhattan, mostly in and around the East Village near the new Tompkins Square Park, which was established in 1850[41].  Briefly his work was located down on Water Street, near where the footings for the Brooklyn Bridge would eventually be built on the Manhattan side.[42]  By 1862, he had moved to Brooklyn, first to Williamsburg, then briefly near Fort Greene Park (then known as Washington Park[43]), then out to the area west of The Evergreens Cemetery, before returning to Williamsburg to settle on Conselyea Street in 1878.  He continued to live there until his death in 1911.  Sometime by 1873, his business had also moved to Brooklyn, first to a location on Hicks at the corner of Nelson, in between Red Hook and Carroll Gardens, before settling from 1874 to about 1894 at a location around the corner from his residence on what was then called Ewen Street (eventually renamed to Manhattan Avenue as it is called today).  By 1897, he had moved the business north of his residence to Leonard Street, just two blocks south of what would become McCarren Park.[44]  The business remained there until his retirement.

Dunn; three sons, Eugene, Alfred and Edward; fifteen grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren.
