According to the book Church at the Crossroads : A History of First United Methodist Church Dallas, Isham Bell Browder was the son of Mrs. Lucy Jane Monroe Browder, a niece of President Monroe. Lucy and her sons Isham and Edward moved from Missouri to Texas in 1845. Both Isham and Edward Browder fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. Sadly, Isham died of illness in 1862. He is buried in the Pioneer Cemetery in Dallas, Texas. Thank you to my nephew T. Renwand for taking this picture while on vacation!
