    Virginia, USA
    Death:      Feb., 1867
    Gonzales
    Gonzales County
    Texas, USA

    Husband of: Nancy Elizabeth Hodges (December 25, 1797 Tennessee - February, 1881 Gonzales.Married in 1811 in Knoxville, Tenn.

    Isham was in the War of 1812 and was a veteran of the Texas Revolution and the Mexican War of 1845.

    In 1825 Isham and his father-in-law James Hodges Sr. made a trip from Alabama and Tennessee to see Green DeWitt about securing land for their families. They were successful in that venture and returned with their families in 1831, having bought the remainder of the Jose Marie Salinas Grant. Making the trip to Texas with the Smiths and Hodges were Isham's brother Batte and family and the Nathan Davis family. They traveled by boat and docked at Galveston,where they traveled on the Gonzales by ox cart.

    Isham, Elizabeth and family settled on the Salinas Grant which was located about five miles southwest of Gonzales in the forks of the Guadalupe and San Marcos Rivers and lived there the remainder of their lives. The community was known as Pecan Branch. They raised cotton, corn and cattle on their land and also had a cotton gin and a mill for grinding grain. During the Runaway Scrape they moved to LaGrange, Texas for a while. This was after the fall of the Alamo and Isham wanted his family a safe distance from Santa Anna's soldiers.

    They returned to their home the following year, resumed farming and lived on the land until their deaths.

    Isham and Elizabeth donated two acres of land for a community Cemetery. It was known as the Pecan Branch- Smith Cemetery.

    Isham and Elizabeth Smith had eight children: Tom (1813); James (1815); Harbort (1829 - March 26, 1895); William Wesley (March 28, 1833 - July 20, 1920); Stroud (February 5, 1834 - 1870); David (January 15, 1838 - November 29, 1917);Elizabeth; and Mary Jane.

    Birth:      Nov. 21, 1791
    Virginia, USA
    Death:      Feb., 1867
    Gonzales
    Gonzales County
    Texas, USA

    Husband of: Nancy Elizabeth Hodges (December 25, 1797 Tennessee - February, 1881 Gonzales.Married in 1811 in Knoxville, Tenn.

    Isham was in the War of 1812 and was a veteran of the Texas Revolution and the Mexican War of 1845.

    In 1825 Isham and his father-in-law James Hodges Sr. made a trip from Alabama and Tennessee to see Green DeWitt about securing land for their families. They were successful in that venture and returned with their families in 1831, having bought the remainder of the Jose Marie Salinas Grant. Making the trip to Texas with the Smiths and Hodges were Isham's brother Batte and family and the Nathan Davis family. They traveled by boat and docked at Galveston,where they traveled on the Gonzales by ox cart.

    Isham, Elizabeth and family settled on the Salinas Grant which was located about five miles southwest of Gonzales in the forks of the Guadalupe and San Marcos Rivers and lived there the remainder of their lives. The community was known as Pecan Branch. They raised cotton, corn and cattle on their land and also had a cotton gin and a mill for grinding grain. During the Runaway Scrape they moved to LaGrange, Texas for a while. This was after the fall of the Alamo and Isham wanted his family a safe distance from Santa Anna's soldiers.

    They returned to their home the following year, resumed farming and lived on the land until their deaths.

    Isham and Elizabeth donated two acres of land for a community Cemetery. It was known as the Pecan Branch- Smith Cemetery.

    Isham and Elizabeth Smith had eight children: Tom (1813); James (1815); Harbort (1829 - March 26, 1895); William Wesley (March 28, 1833 - July 20, 1920); Stroud (February 5, 1834 - 1870); David (January 15, 1838 - November 29, 1917);Elizabeth; and Mary Jane.
