Living with Philo's family in 1860 is Isaac "Peckell" age 25, born in Ohio. He is likely an uncle - Margaret, mother of Philo, did have a brother named Isaac, but that Isaac would be more likely age 35 in 1860. Isaac was apparently mentally handicapped and may not have appeared his age. In 1870, Isaac was living with Philo's sister - in his old age he was admitted to the almshouse as a pauper and feebleminded.
