    Notes 
    • from Meyer book of 1896 (page 48-49)...
      When the Isaac was eight days old his mother died and he was then cared for by his maternal grandparents until 16 years of age. He attended the common schools of the vicinity, and at an early age was sent to Freeland Seminary, at Collegeville, Pa., now known as Ursinus College, where he attended three years. The two years following he taught public schools, giving general satisfaction. When 19 years of age he commenced the study of medicine with his uncle, Dr. Joseph Moyer, a successful practitioner, then residing at Kulpsville, Pa. He afterwards entered Pennsylvania Medical University, from which he graduated Mar. 5, 1859, and on the 26th of the same month located at Plumsteadville, Bucks Co., Pa., where he was engaged in a lucrative practice for nine years. In the Spring of 1868 he sold his practice and traveled considerably during that year. On Apr. 5, 1869, he resumed the practice of medicine and located at Quakertown, Pa., having purchased the practice of Drs. Joseph Thomas and Richard J. Linderman. Here he enjoyed a larger practice than at his former place.

      When quite young he manifested a love for botany, the study of which he ever since followed with pleasure and profit. He thoroughly investigated the flora of Bucks county, and in 1876 published a catalogue of plants of said county, which was added to Gen. W. W. H. Davis' "History of Bucks county." This was the published flora of the county.

      The doctor studied natural history generally, and is well versed in ornithology. He is a member of the Lehigh Valley Medical Association, of the Board Censors of the Medico-Chirurgical College of Philadelphia; of Quakertown Lodge, No. 512, F. and A. M., and was master in 1875. In 1880 was a member of the Electoral College of Pennsylvania on the Republican ticket. In 1887 he received from Muhlenberg College, at Allentown, Pa., the degree of A. M. The doctor has now been practicing medicine for thirty-five years, during which time he met with great success, and won the confidence and good will of the people with whom he came in contact.
