Isaac Broyhill
son of  John E. Broyhill

  As a young man, Isaac lived with his parents on Pores Knob, but would come down to Boomer to do carpenter work.  It was there he met Margaret Parsons.  On April 23, 186, he rode down to her farm with a second horse in tow.  Soon they were on their way to Moravian Falls where they were married by Squire Hubbard.
     Isaac liked to keep bees and would sell the honey.  He had attended a little school near Pores Knob, but mostly educated himself.  He was very religious and was often seen sitting in the yard near his bees reading the Bible.  He reportedly read it from cover to cover several times.
