Isham L. Tiner was born July 10, 1827, in Illinois.
He arrived in Idaho in 1862 with a capital of $1,500. He secured a mining claim in Placerville where from which he took out about $200 worth of gold a day, paying each of his five men $8 per day.
He came to Boise around 1869. During his time in Boise, he served for a time as warden of the penitentiary and was appointed sheriff when James Lawrence resigned.
Based on a lack of news coverage, it appears that he served the remainder of the term quietly and without scandal.
