Twin brother of William Leany (each of them spelled their surname in a different way.) Some sources give Isaac's birth date as 19 December 1814 but if he was the twin of William he must have been born in 1815. (See sources for William.)
Isaac initially traveled to the Salt Lake Valley in the Edward Hunter/Jacob Foutz Company in 1847 as indicated in Isaac Laney’s autobiographical sketch. He was re-baptized at Salt Lake City on 29 April 1849.
At the end of a mission, he traveled home in the Chester Loveland Company in 1868 as indicated in a Deseret Evening News article on 20 Aug 1868.
In the 1850 Utah census Isaac's surname is spelled "Leany" but various sources spell it "Laney." The 1850 census index spells the family surname "Leavey" and "Leavy."
