Israel was a carpenter. He lived in Radnor, Pa., until 1793, when he moved to Phila., Pa. In Philadelphia, he went into the lumber business with his brother Caleb (1E54).

On May 5, 1801, in Phila., Pa., Israel married, firstly, Ann Garrigues, daughter of William and Mary (Mitchell) Garrigues. Ann was born on Aug. 17, 1780, and died on Oct. 12, 1811. A poem written in honor of Israel and Ann by Joseph Kite, referring to their dedication to the Monthly Meeting, appears in 63 The Friend 172 (1889). Israel and Ann had five children:

On Dec. 1, 1813, Israel married, secondly, Ann Price, daughter of Elisha and Elizabeth (Bennett) Price. Ann was born on Oct. 10, 1784, and died on Mar. 13, 1833. She is buried at Arch Street Friends Ground, Phila., Pa. Ann's sister Lavinia married Israel's brother Caleb (1E54); apparently Joshua Maule (1E51), their brother, who had taught the Price girls at his school in Wilmington, Del., introduced them to Israel and Caleb shortly before he died. Israel and Ann had five children:
