son of John E. Broyhill
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.
