Note: Isaac has the middle initial of "S" on one marriage record. None of us descendants know what, if anything, it stands for.
I've tried to extract records verbatim, but have had to refer back to my old notes in some cases. Also, my extract of Isaac's first marriage is from a typed, certified copy, backed up by my old notes from when I extracted it from the marriage book. Back then, my extracts were not all verbatim. DKP's extract style, not copy/paste.
