LIZZIE JANE BRASHER FAMILY
Pictured above is my great-grandmother, Lizzie Jane Brasher, and her son John. I have a document
that says Lizzie's maiden name was Hall. She is listed on the 1900 Scott County census in the town of
Brasher, Lizzy Hd Jun 1856 43 Wid 5/5 AR VA VA Margan S Mar 1879 21 Sgl AR AR AR Annie D Sep 1885 14 AR AR AR John S Sep 1892 7 AR AR AR Jimmie S Aug 1894 5 AR AR AR Lyda D Sep 1898 1 AR AR ARWe believe the oldest son listed as "Margan" on the census above was Marion Brasher, who was hit and killed by a train at Waldron on January 21, 1906. The 1910 census lists the family in the town of Waldron:
Brasher, Jane Hd 52 Sgl 5/4 AR US AR John S 18 Sgl AR US AR James S 14 AR US AR Lida D 12 AR US ARThe daughter Annie had likely married; we haven't been able to locate a record of her marriage. I have a WWI draft registration for John Brasher, who never married and states he is unable to fight because he is supporting his mother. It says he is a cook and day laborer for Frank Bates. The 1920 census for the town of Waldron lists John Brasher at age 29 and single, employed as a restaurant cook. Also in his home is his mother Jane, a 62 year old widow. Pictured below is my grandmother, Lida Brasher Ashworth.
Pictured below is a four generation family photo, taken in 1971, of Matthew Swin Carpenter, born 10 October 1970 (adopted); Mary Susan Ashworth Carpenter, born 19 June 1946; Howard Hugh Ashworth, born 11 January 1919 and died 11 July 1991; and Lida Brasher Ashworth, born 20 September 1897 and died 7 December 1980.
I would love to hear from anyone who can help me learn more about this family.
