Isaac Patterson Sinclair is the son of Isaac S Sinclair and Anna Morris (Patterson) Sinclair.

"Isaac P. Sinclair Jr. lived just west of Cloverdale in his young manhood. He married America L. Martin of Kentucky, a daughter of Thomas Martin, who came from that state to Indiana with Isaac Sinclair Sr., and entered land north of Cloverdale. He afterwards located near Cloverdale, but a few years later moved over to Owen County. Later in life he [Isaac Sr. or Thomas Martin: this is not clear] bought a farm three miles south of Cloverdale, where his death occurred.

From his home west of Cloverdale Isaac Sinclair, Jr. moved to Owen County, but two or three years later he returned to the southern part of Putnam County, where he built a large and attractive brick residence about 1840. In 1848 he moved to Greencastle, which was his home during the remainder of his life. He was engaged in the management of a warehouse there at the time of his death. He had also laid out an addition to the city of Greencastle and erected several houses. He died on October 25, 1854 and was survived many years by his widow, who death occurred in 1878. They were the parents of four sons and four daughters, namely: John P., Thomas Martin, Lee W., Isaac S., Minerva, Martha Ann, Elizabeth and Eliza J.

Of these children, John P. lived on the home farm until 1848, receiving his education in the public schools of Greencastle. He [John P., son] married Rebbeca A. Hardin. He spent most of his life in Putnam county, removing in 1875 to Iowa, where his death occurred. [son] Thomas Martin died at the age of seventeen years. [son] Lee W. spent his early years in Greencastle, looking after the warehouse for his father, and was also engaged in the wool business. He [Lee W.] married Eliza Brandt and went to Salem, Indiana. Later he went to South Chicago, where he operated a woollen (sic) mill, and then went to West Baden, Indiana, where he is now engaged in running the West Newton Springs Hotel. His [Lee W.] first wife died in 1873 and he subsequently married Caddie Percise."
