James Browder was the youngest of the six children born to James Dennis and his first wife (may be Elizabeth Chadwick). He was a minor when his father died in 1939, leaving him a 1/13th share in the estate. The estate consisted of 500-600 acres in Overton County, Tennessee, of which , "Peniny," the second wife, was awarded 1/3. On 16 Apr 1839, Thomas Eldridge (brother-in-law) paid fifty cents "to guardian bond for J.B. Dennis," according to Overton County Court Minutes.

In 1844, James Browder married Catherine Roberts, daughter of Gabriel and Delia (Marcum) Roberts. They had 10 children: William Thomas, James Gabriel, Levi Franklin, Nancy Deliah, Mary, Samuel Petway, Julianna, JCB, and Sarah.
