Before 1840, Isaac moved his family, including his two oldest children, Amos and Mary, to Rush County, Indiana, where his family increased to at least six children.

In late 1848, Amos purchased 80 acres in Lafayette Township of Allen County, Indiana, and was living there with Aquilla, William R., Frances, Elizabeth A., and Mary M. at the time of the 1850 census. Sometime between 1860 and 1870, Amos and his second wife moved to Benton Harbor, Berrien County, Michigan. Amos, a farmer, died there of typhoid fever, at the age of 72.
