Isaac H. Carmen was born in Shelby County, Kentucky on the 11th day of April in 1820. He came to CLark Township, Montgomery County at age 14. It is interesting to note that in several census records, he had no occupation, was a farmer and of course, a physician. He had at least these children, together with his wife, Mary Harrison: J. William; Cary; Matilda; McVey; A. Joseph; Sarah Louisa and Evada. His nephew, Benjamin was Auditor of Montgomery County at the time of the good doctor's death. It is not known to what extent his medical career expanded as even his obituary on Nov 5, 1903 did not take note of it. He is certainly one of the doctors I feel needs further research by someone in the future ! And, as all research goes, there is even a remote possibility that that is not the man who was a doctor or that he did not practice as a physician long after receiving training.
Note: When I was moving the website pages over to a new program (December 2016) I decided I should check him farther. His middle initial is H and as I had noted his name is also often spelled Carman. His death was caused from "old age" at 83 Years 6 Months 25 Days. Dr. Y.N. New took care of him and he is buried with his wife in North Salem Cemetery. His daughter, Sarah E. Stevens was the informant of the information. Father is given as Isaac H. Carman born in PA and mother Mary Hughes born in KY. - kbz
