Isaac Allred was the second son and fifth child in a family of eight children. Little is known of his early life. He married Mary Calvert and they moved near Nashville, Tennessee, where his brother James lived.

Apparently their first child, Elizabeth, was born while they were on the road, as she was born in Bedford County, Tennessee. They remained there until about 1830, when they moved north about 500 miles to Monroe County, Missouri. Isaac had a difficult time providing for his family, which by 1831 numbered 11 children.

About this time, the Mormon elders came into the life of Isaac and his family. He soon opened his home to them and meetings were held. Isaac was soon baptized on 10 September 1832 in the Salt River with other members of his family.

In 1832 or 1833, Isaac sold his farm for an intended move to Jackson County, but when the saints were expelled, he rented his home back from the buyer and remained there for a time. In 1835 he moved his family to Clay County, Missouri at the request of the Prophet. They suffered much because of persecution and exposure. Soon they moved to Quincy, where they settled down.

When the exodus from Nauvoo came, Isaac left with his family and had to wait on the Iowa side of the Mississippi River until his son Reddick returned from helping other saints move. Then he helped them move to Council Bluffs. Reddick and William, two sons, joined the Mormon Battalion. Isaac and family remained at Council Bluffs until the return of Reddick, then they moved to the Valley.

Isaac continued to have difficulty supporting his family. They lived in Cottonwood, where his wife died. He married again and raised her children plus one of their own. They moved to Kaysville, Utah, where they lived until his death.

Isaac was a convert, father of 14 children, had two wives, was involved in the persecutions of Missouri, crossed the plains, sent two sons with the Mormon Battalion, settled for a time in Spring City, Utah, Cottonwood, and eventually in Kaysville. He died in Spring City.
