Although Thomas did not want to refer the matter to arbitrators, it was decided on 28 April 1755 to allow him two more weeks to do so. "But if Thomas Swayne refuse or neglect to appoint men and enter into Bonds, longer than two weeks, Then this meeting gives liberty to William Pennell and Isaac Weaver to proceed to the tryal of the case by Law, as they may be advised, But withall requires the friends so concerned to behave towards each other as friends, and in the moderation becoming Brethren proceed in the case to the last."8

Religion*28 July 1783Isaac was a Quaker and, on 28 July 1783, was complained of at Chester Meeting, Chester County, for marrying outside the Society to a woman not of his faith. He then, in writing, apologized at Chester Meeting for his "deviant" behavior, and was reinstated on 26 March 1784.4
Relocation25 October 1784Abigail and Isaac moved to Philadelphia shortly after Isaac received a certificate, for his membership transfer, from Chester Monthly Meeting on 25 October 1784.4
ReligionAfter the war, Isaac was disowned by the Society of Friends for mustering in the militia. Throughout his life, however, he adhered to their principles in general, and used the plain language of the Friends within his family.4
(Son) Relocation1788Isaac's parents, and some of his younger siblings, moved from Pennsylvania in 1788 to Monongalia County, Virginia and settled near Morgantown.3

He was elected to the state Senate, representing the district composed of Washington and Greene counties, in 1808, and served as Speaker from 1816 through 1820. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the U.S. Senate in 1819, and was twice named a convention choice for governor.5,7,4
Occupation*Although he owned a farm in Greene County, Pennsylvania, he was so active in public affairs he left the management of it to his sons.4
