Israel Isaacs Died This Morning
Aged 74 Years-Retired from Business About 7 Years Ago
Israel Isaacs, one of Saint John’s pioneer citizens and business men died at 7:50 o’clock this morning, in his 75th year of age, He was born in London, England, on December 1, 1849. At the early age of seven years he emigrated with his parents to the United States, where he remained for 25 years. In 1881 he came to Saint John where he joined his brother, the late Abraham Isaacs, and together they formed the firm of A and I Isaacs, which they developed into one of the largest cigar and cigarette factories in Canada. Mr. Isaacs was forced to retire about seven years ago on account of ill-health.
On September 5, 1883, Mr. Isaacs married Caroline Hart, daughter of the late Solomon and Alice Hart of this city. He is survived by his loving wife Caroline; two sisters, Mrs. L. Marks, and Mrs. J. Metzger, both of Brooklyn N.Y.; three daughters, Mrs. Maurice Abrahamson, of Brookline, Mass., and Sylvia and Ruby, at home, and one son, A. Hart, also at home.
Mr. Isaacs was generally well liked. He and his brother were very active in the founding of the first Hebrew Synagogue here, and he took a great interest in its development. He was very charitable, especially during the war, but he carried on his good work unostentatiously. In politics he was an independent voter, favouring the man rather than the party.
Mr. Isaac’s death took place on the 35th anniversary of the dearth of his father, who also died at the same age, 74 years. The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon from his late residence 23 Coburg Street to the Green-Hart Cemetery, Fernhill.
