It is believed the two stones sitting side by side in this cemetery inscribed simply "Lawrence Brasher" and "Elizabeth Brasher" belong to the Lawrence and Elizabeth Brasher who were parents of John Thompson and Elijah Brasher who are also buried here.

The following biographical information comes from a compilation of sources, some unverified.

Elizabeth Black Brasher, Born 1774, North Carolina-Died 10 Feb 1855, Christian County, Kentucky.

Elizabeth was the daughter of Johannes "Hans" and Agnes Nancy Black, both born in The Netherlands.

Elizabeth married Lawrence Brasher in about 1792 in Greenville County, South Carolina after the Black family moved there from North Carolina. It is believed they had the following children: John Thompson, Nancy, Margaret, William T., Elijah, Mary "Polly", Sarah, Elizabeth, Hampton and Lawrence, Jr.

The Brashers and the Blacks all relocated to Christian County, Kentucky.

Note: Elizabeth appears in the 1850 US Census in Christian Co., KY living with the family of her son, Elijah. Her place of birth is cited as Kentucky in error.
