If this is your Isaac - died in BC in 1910 - perhaps you could contact the Archives to get a death certificate

1891 - looks like Sophia in Wingham, East Huron.  She says the birth place of both her parents was Prussia.

1881 census, Sophia is in Peterborough, Ontario with son Dennis and his family.  Again, she says her origin is German.  Dennis and his children say Scotch.

1871 census...could be Sophia with her children William and Sarah.  This time in Howick, North Huron.

William, Sarah and Sophia all say they were born in Ontario.  William and Sarah say that their "origin" is Scotch.  That would be their father's background.  Sophia says that her "origin" is German.

Loretta's marriage in 1863

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS7D-R7JN?i=34&cc=2568642

Parents James and Sophia.  No mention that James is deceased - this is consistent with the other McMartin marriage records mentioned above.

James is on the 1851 census with his wife and 3 children at King, York County, Canada West (Ontario) and it says born in Ireland. In the 1861 census Sarah is a widow in Carrick, Bruce, Canada West, so James died sometime between the two censuses.

Here is the 1861 census in Carrick, Bruce.  Several family members here - everyone born in Upper Canada (Ontario)
