Son of James R. ("Hugh") Isbell Jr. and Clarissa Crittenden;
grandson of James R. Isbell and Elizabeth Birdwell.
A transcript of the Isbell family bible gives their son Zachariah's birth as March 6, 1871, while his headstone gives the date March 26, 1861.
He was possibly named Elijah for his father's double-first cousin, Elijah Miller Isbell, son of Levi and Sarah Birdwell Isbell.

Zachariah Elijah Isbell married Melinda (Malinda, Milinda) Josephine Ponder, who was older than he and apparently a widow, but the ages vary in censuses.

He was a carpenter.
