301 Hello! I am wondering if you would have any information on a Fred Bryson. He was married to Lula Ballinger which was the child of Ida Brasfield and Marion Ballinger. Lula and Fred were my mothers great grandparents. We might have some information to help you also. Lula and Fred had four children. They had Carrie Helen Bryson, Jessie Bryson, Tommy Bryson, and Doris Bryson. Im not sure of dates yet. Carrie was my mothers grandmother. She married Joseph Benson. They had four kids also. William Robert Benson(which was my mother father), Jimmy Ray Benson, Vera Ruth Benson, and Barbara Benson. I can carry this further for you. There is many generations after this. We've always heard that there was Cherokee Indian in the family line somewhere. Thats why we're contacting you, hoping that you can help. I hope we have helped you. Feel free to e-mail me with any information. Heather Thompson thomgirl@hotmail.com 11/21/2001 BRASFIELD Ida
 
302 Died at 6 months of age. According to Sibyl Brasfield, Imogene was hurt prior to birth when Laura Brasfield fell down a "steep row of steps", and Imogene wasn't "ready to be born".

303 You raise an interesting question. Although I have an Ira Brasfield in the data base, of about the right vintage, he shows a different wife. I have added Lula Pearl Peal as a daughter of John Henry Peal and Nancy Jane Hay, and will try and research the exact connection. A quick check of the LDS and Ancestry.com internet data bases don't help much, other than to show some likely siblings for Nancy Hay. Thank you very much for the information provided. If anything else turns up, I will let you know. Mike Brasfield

314 Hello Michael,

My name is Rodney Gene Brasfield. My grand-dad is Willis Thomas Brasfield which is the son of Jason Thomas Brasfield. Jason Thomas Brasfield was married to Minnie Jane Purser. She was born May 26, 1900 in Flourence, Alabama. She died February 3, 1990 in Jonesboro, Arkansas. She was buried on the 5th at Bassett Cemetary in Memphis, Tn. My Great grand-dad Jason died in Memphis, Tn on July 9, 1967. Minnie Jane Purser was the daughter of John W Purser and Lucellia Johnson. I do know she(Lucellia) was born in Dec. of 1885 and married to John Purser in the year 1900. She was only 14 and he was 16. I have a copy of the Marion county, Alabama census of 1900 showing this information. This is all I have except that somewhere they divorced or he died and she married James Albert Brasfield son of John Bryant Brasfield and Nancy Anne Brassfield. This information was giving to me by a cousin. No documented proof is found at this time. Both Lucellia and John W were born in Alabama. I know of no siblings of her or if Lucellia had any more children at all. This Purser line was supposed to be related to the famous sheriff Buford Purser(Pussor). Not sure on the spelling yet. Just getting into the family tree on that side but having a lot of trouble. I'm going to include a picture of my Great Grandparents Jason Thomas and Minnie Jane Purser which will be the Photograph of the couple and a Picture of Lucellia which is the single women. I am also going to enclose a picture of Lucellia's Father. The only info I have on him is his last name Johnson. He is the picture with two women and the first women in the white dress is Beatrice Brasfield the older sister of my Grandpa Willis Thomas Brasfield. The other lady is unknown at the present time.
This is all I know of this section but thought it would be a great help and maybe help me in the long run with the Purser side of the family tree. If you can enlighten me on any more information I would really appreciate it. If you would like any more information just ask and I'll see what I can do. I also have a picture of Caroline Smith, John Bryant with one of his son's Iley. If you would like these let me know.
I appreciate the work you have done on the Brasfield lineage. You have helped me out a lot and have taught me a lot too. You can use these photo's in the picture section of the web sight but please make a note that if you say picture supplied by, please include Juleen Christensen also cause she did supply me those pictures and the info on Lucellia's second marriage to James Albert Brasfield.
Thank you
Rodney Gene Brasfield

********************************************************

To those that are tracking the Brasfield's in the 1920 census.
If you are looking for James Albert Brasfield son of John Bryant and Nancy Annie Brasfield. Look under Bansfield as a surname, it is supposed to be Brasfield. He is married to Lou and has her children from her first marriage listed. They had no children. They also divorced. I have copies of what was left of their divorce (only thing left after the fire of the courthouse is the Chanclor fee book) and their marriage license to those interested. Also to those interested one of Lou's children not listed in this census married one of John Bryant's sons Jason Thomas. Her name was Minnie. Jason Thomas was born from John's second wife Caroline which also died. Any information on this little family line is welcome to email me.

Surname:

BRASFIELD, James W.--was born in Platt county, Missouri, 16 January 1840. His father Thomas W. R. BRASFIELD, was a pioneer of 1821 to Missouri. At the age of 14 our subject entered his father's store where he received his early education in the mercantile business. In 1860 he went to St. Joseph, where he clerked for 2 years; he then joined a
part of young men to seek their fortune in the Golden State, but on arriving near Fort Hall their route was changed and they came to Oregon. In 1863, Mr BRASFIELD went to Harrisburg and entered the employ of Hon. Hiram SMITH, and one year later was admitted as a partner under the firm name of SMITH & BRASFIELD. This firm continued for 10 years, when Mr. B sold out and started a store in Junction City where he did business until 1881, when he sold out and selected Yaquina Bay as his future home and at that time opened his present general store in Newport. In 1883 he purchased the well known Seal Rock property, one of the most delightful places to be found on the Pacific Coast, a description of which will be found in its proper place in this work. Mr
BRASFIELD was married in Harrisburg, Linn county, 1 January 1865 to Miss Lydia OWENS, a native of Kansas, and a daughter of Col Henry OWENS of Topeka; by this union they have an interesting family of 5 children, Arthur S., Hiram, Thomas W. R., Sank O., and Sadie.

HISTORY OF BENTON COUNTY, OREGON
Pub. By: David D. Fagan
Portland, Oregon, 1885

****************************************

The completion of the Oregon Pacific Railroad opened to capital many profitable investments, but it was speculated that "probably none, considering the outlay required, would prove more remunerative than the erection of a hotel and the improvement of grounds near Seal Rock," a challenge took up 1887 by Lydia Owens and James W. Brassfield who attempted to develop the area.

Seal Rocks Resort 1887

South of Highlands and For Far, which were developed in 1888 by William Grant, a Scotsman who was described in a newspaper of the day as a hard working tailor from Corvallis, was Seal Rock Resorts, developed by Lydia Owens and James W. Brassfield in 1887. Brassfield was born in Platt County, Missouri, January 16, 1840. His father, Thomas W. R. Brassfield, was a Missouri pioneer in 1821. At the age of 14, Brassfield entered his father's store where he received his early education in the mercantile business. In 1860, he moved to Saint Joseph, where he clerked for two years. He then joined a party of young men on their way to California, then known as the Golden State. Upon arriving at Fort Hall, their route changed, and they ended up in Oregon.
In 1863, Brassfield moved to Harrisburg, where he was employed by Judge Hiram Smith, a pioneer of 1853, and one year later he was admitted as a partner under the firm of Smith & Brassfield.
January 1, 1865, he married Lydia Owens, a native of Kansas and a daughter of Col. Henry Owens, of Topeka, in Harrisburg, Kansas, January 1, 1865. The couple had five children: Arthur S., Hiram, Thomas, W. R., Frank O. and Sadie.
The firm of Smith & Brassfield continued for ten years, after which the Brassfields sold out and started a store in Junction City where they did business until 1881.
In 1887, Lydia and James Brassfield sold out again and moved to Yaquina Bay where they opened a general store. They purchased the well known Seal Rock property—one of the most delightful places on the Pacific Coast—and filed a plat map showing their holdings divided into 600 lots.
In 1885, historian David Fagan wrote that the place, together with a large tract of land adjoining,

was then the property of James W. Brassfield, a merchant of Newport, who erected a fine residence near the beach and a short distance south of Seal Rock, where his family in the summer months resided and enjoyed the beauties of nature and the ceaseless roar of the surf, which at this place is truly magnificent; and, fortunate indeed is he who is permitted to enjoy the hospitality of the Brassfields. At this point are shell beds, indicating that it had been the home of the Coastal Indians for generations, as the beds are numerous and range in depth of one to six feet.

Three entire blocks were dedicated for hotel construction. A year later, two additions to Seal Rocks Resort were mapped.
The couple managed to build a hotel and sell a few lots before getting into financial trouble. Many of their lots were deeded to a Portland creditor. Of the few lots they sold, most were abandoned by their purchasers and sold at auction by the county for as little as $9 a piece.
The post office was established April 25, 1890, with Brassfield postmaster. Now a community post office out of Waldport, Seal Rock is on US-101, the Oregon Coast Highway. It was named for the several smaller rocks, but is called Seal Rock for the one large rock at the shoreline.
In the past, a pedestrian-friendly community with well-organized streets, parks, and public gathering places was, for the most part, a sales pitch. The vision of developers is being rekindled in many Lincoln County communities, and people are now actively working to make such improvements a reality.
Today, the chainsaw sculptures of Ray Kowalski and Brian McEneny are featured prominently at Seal Rock.

341 Hello Michael,

My name is Rodney Gene Brasfield. My grand-dad is Willis Thomas Brasfield which is the son of Jason Thomas Brasfield. Jason Thomas Brasfield was married to Minnie Jane Purser. She was born May 26, 1900 in Flourence, Alabama. She died February 3, 1990 in Jonesboro, Arkansas. She was buried on the 5th at Bassett Cemetary in Memphis, Tn. My Great grand-dad Jason died in Memphis, Tn on July 9, 1967. Minnie Jane Purser was the daughter of John W Purser and Lucellia Johnson. I do know she(Lucellia) was born in Dec. of 1885 and married to John Purser in the year 1900. She was only 14 and he was 16. I have a copy of the Marion county, Alabama census of 1900 showing this information. This is all I have except that somewhere they divorced or he died and she married James Albert Brasfield son of John Bryant Brasfield and Nancy Anne Brassfield. This information was giving to me by a cousin. No documented proof is found at this time. Both Lucellia and John W were born in Alabama. I know of no siblings of her or if Lucellia had any more children at all. This Purser line was supposed to be related to the famous sheriff Buford Purser(Pussor). Not sure on the spelling yet. Just getting into the family tree on that side but having a lot of trouble. I'm going to include a picture of my Great Grandparents Jason Thomas and Minnie Jane Purser which will be the Photograph of the couple and a Picture of Lucellia which is the single women. I am also going to enclose a picture of Lucellia's Father. The only info I have on him is his last name Johnson. He is the picture with two women and the first women in the white dress is Beatrice Brasfield the older sister of my Grandpa Willis Thomas Brasfield. The other lady is unknown at the present time.
This is all I know of this section but thought it would be a great help and maybe help me in the long run with the Purser side of the family tree. If you can enlighten me on any more information I would really appreciate it. If you would like any more information just ask and I'll see what I can do. I also have a picture of Caroline Smith, John Bryant with one of his son's Iley. If you would like these let me know.
I appreciate the work you have done on the Brasfield lineage. You have helped me out a lot and have taught me a lot too. You can use these photo's in the picture section of the web sight but please make a note that if you say picture supplied by, please include Juleen Christensen also cause she did supply me those pictures and the info on Lucellia's second marriage to James Albert Brasfield.
Thank you
Rodney Gene Brasfield

342 Jasper was married to Mary Jane Little. She isn't 100% sure of Mary Jane's last name but thinks she is right. They had 5 children, Sadie, Victoria, and Ellie May, two sons, Glokcus ( not sure of spelling) and another she only knew as A. They were from So. Mo. around Steele and Hayti, and Hermandale. They later moved to Yarbro, Ark. and later Blytheville. Sadie died sometime in the 80's, i believe. I will try to find out more. Hope this is helpful.Sipes,Brasfield,Wilson, Henderson.Yearby
