Source: "Portrait and Biographical Record - Published 1894 by Excelsior Publishing Co., Chicago" Pages 329 - 330

Isaac Brazelton, of the town of Scott, is a well-known pioneer business man of Sheboygan county, having been a resident of the county since 1847. He was born in the town of New Market, in East Tennessee the 3rd of July, 1820, and is a son of Jacob and Margaret (Carper) Brazelton. His father was a native of Tennessee and his mother of Ohio. On the father's side the Brazelton family is of Welsh descent.

Isaac Brazelton came to Wisconsin with his parents in 1835, and settled near Milwaukee, in the town of Granville. He was married in Vermillion County, Ill., September 21, 1843, to Miss Jane Lemley. Mr. Brazelton went from Milwaukee County with an ox-team and wagon for his bride, and they returned in that conveyance, camping at night by the roadside.

In 1847, Mr. Brazelton removed to Sheboygan, where he carried on a meat-market for a number of years, and was also engaged in buying and selling livestock. In the spring of 1861 he removed to the town of Scott, where he opened a store at Batavia, and also bought a farm. He has since continued at that place, and is still extensively engaged in farming. In Scott Township, Mr. Brazelton owns several farms, aggregating three hundred and twenty five acres.

Unto Mr. and Mrs. Brazelton have been born seven children, of whom three only are living; Sarah C., now the wife of John M. Saemann, of Sheboygan; William L., who resides in Rush County, Kan.; and Edward G., a merchant of Batavia.

Mr. Brazelton was appointed Postmaster at Batavia about 1863, and has held the office ever since, except for the four years of President Cleveland's first term. He has also served as Justice of the Peace twenty-five years. Mr. Brazelton is a man of rare business capacity, and has been eminently successful in accumulating property.
