1817-1818 is pretty early for Ohio.  His parents are probably from some other state and might be listed among the early settlers of Belmont County.

I found an Isaiah Cook, born in Morristown, Belmont, Ohio who married Sarah Watson from Pennsylvania.  They had a son, Andrew Mitchell Cook, who was born on 02 Jun 1854 at Ohio County, (West) Virginia:

He also had a daughter born on 12 May 1853 at Ohio County, West Virginia.    https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X5RR-ZHQ

In 1880, this Isaiah was married to Catherine Watkins from Maryland and living in Richland, Ohio, West Virginia:   https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M6T3-4D3

Hi Virginia,

Belmont, Ohio is near Ohio County, West Virginia.  Do you have any other details?  Do you know the names of wife, children, where they lived, anything?

Could this have been his son?

If so, here he is in the 1850 census:

I love these old aerial maps from the Library of Congress.  Here is one of Bellaire in Belmont County, Ohio, not too far from Wheeling and Martins Ferry.  https://www.loc.gov/resource/g4084b.pm006800/
