Isaac came to Knox County, Indiana, in 1837. He and his family left for Oregon from Oaktown, Knox County, on 21 March 1853 with a wagon and ox team. Several relatives also were part of this wagon train. This group became lost and wandered around for two weeks before coming to a place they had been before. They were “The Lost Wagon Train of 1853,” which rescuers were sent out to find.

Most of the land used for the Eugene Maholn Sweet Airport originally belonged to the Bonds. Isaac was a charter member of Pleasant Hill Grange and Irving Grange. He was Deacon of the Christian Church for many years. He served on the school board for twenty years, and he was a member of the board of supervisors for roads for three terms.
