On May 29, 1775, Isaac Bogart Sr. was appointed a member of the Constitutional Congress from Oyster Bay, to carry out the resolutions of the Congress. The committee was in session at Daniel Cox's at Matinecock when it was informed of the Battle of Brooklyn. At once, everyone rushed home except Isaac Bogart Jr. and Joost Monfoort, who took leave of their families, jumped onto a couple of horses and rode off to Huntington, crossed Long Island Sound by boat, and joined the Continental Army under Colonel Brinkerhof in Dutchess County.

On October 21, 1792, Isaac Bogart Sr. became an elder on the same day Isaac Jr. became a deacon in the Wolver Hollow Dutch Reformed Church.

All the Bogarts up to this point probably spoke Dutch rather than English. Isaac's son Helmus, it is said, spoke only Dutch until he was seven years old (see Alice Holliday's notes about the family).
