512      ISAAC HENRY6     (Elisha5, Isaac4, George3, John2, Johannes1), son of Elisha and Lucy (Imus) Oatman, was born in the town of Locke, Cayuga County, New York, 17 May 1825 and died in Salem, New York, 30 January 1910 at the age of 85 years.  (DAR records indicate that Isaac died at Belcher rather than Salem, New York.) 

He married 22 October 1848 Charlotte, daughter of George and Jane (Dixon) Chapman, born 22 December 1828, Belcher, New York, and died 20 April 1894 at Belcher or Salem, New York.  Isaac then married Mary B.      , who was born March 1855. 


The family resided at Argyle, Hartford and Salem, New York.  Isaac was a farmer, blacksmith and marble dealer.  His farms were in Belcher, New York, of which one is now owned by Ross Williamson, and the other by Joseph Eagle who purchased it from Isaac Benjamin's estate.  His blacksmith shop stands at the top of the hill above the Eagle farm, and his marble shop, which he ran with his brother Mortimer Dudley Oatman, is the home now occupied by the Farley family on Thomas Street in Salem, New York.
