Isaac Chase Zent was a train conductor for the Western Pacific Railroad for over 35 years. The 1900 census lists Isaac and Jessie Zent with Child, Grace Z., 1 year old, in Squaw Valley Township, Dunsmuir, Siskiyou County, California. Several years later, they moved to Oroville, California and lived there for many years.

Isaac was an avid hunter and fisherman. As one of the perks of being an employee of the railroad, every year around Christmas time many of the railroad employees would take a train up to the mountains and bring back Christmas trees for their families.
