Pauline man killed in wreck after truck crashes into trees.
From staff reports

Published: Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 3:15 a.m.
Last Modified: Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 1:26 a.m.

A 49-year-old Pauline man was killed in a wreck early Saturday in Woodruff.

Investigator Dwayne Corn of the Spartanburg County Coroner's Office said in a statement that John Chase Brasfield, of 1013 Harrelson Road, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. S.C. Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Scot Edgeworth said Brasfield was driving south on Waddell Road in a 2000 Chevrolet pickup truck, drove through the intersection of Greenpond Road and went off the left side and overcorrected. After that, Brasfield drove off the right side of the road and collided with trees, Edgeworth said. A neighbor heard the accident at 2:20 a.m. Saturday. Brasfield was trapped in the truck and had to be extricated, Edgeworth said. Brasfield was not wearing a seat belt and suffered several injuries, Edgeworth said. Corn said Brasfield died from internal head and body trauma. He was pronounced dead at 3:34 a.m. No autopsy is planned.

Hi Michael,
I have gone through my mother's suitcase trying to find information about her ancestry.
Her father was John Coke Brasfield b 1880 Tenn., his father George R. b 1823 N.C., his father Caleb d 1846. Any ideas for this beginner? I found your website at FamilyTreeMaker. On your website no mention of a John Coke Brasfield.

Los Angeles : John C. Brasfield Pub. Corp., 1925-

John C Brasfield moved his family, at the age of 40, to Southern California. In 1920 he began publishing The Architectural Digest. At the time the magazine was centered on California (and mostly Southern California) architecture and interiors and, therefore, it's appeal was somewhat limited.

BRASFIELD John Edgar
 
362 JOHN E. BRASFIELD, who throughout his entire life has followed farming and stock-raising, was born in Menard county March 10, 1879. His father, Thomas H. Brasfield, was a native of Madison county, Kentucky, born on the 4th of December, 1829. During his boyhood days he remained at home and through the winter months attended school, while in the summer seasons he assisted in the work of the fields. After leaving school he engaged in farming with his father until twenty-five years of age. He had accompanied his parents to Illinois in 1834, the family home being established near Athens in Menard county and he continued under the parental roof until 1854. His father had purchased land patents whereby he secured three hundred and twenty acres of land and upon a part of this land Thomas H. Brasfield began farming and stock-raising for himself, devoting the greater part of his attention, however, to the latter pursuit. He generally fed a carload of cattle each winter, also many hogs, and likewise raised horses enough to do his own farm work. He built a comfortable and commodious home after burning the tall prairie grass from a patch of land sufficient to enable him to have a clear space on which to pile his lumber. That pioneer home is still standing and is one of the landmarks in the neighborhood. It is surrounded with fine maple, ash and elm trees that were planted by Mr. Brasfield, and he also set out a catalpa grove and a black walnut grove. He made his farm one of the finest developed and improved places of his locality and successfully carried on general agricultural pursuits for many years. He acted as a school trustee for twenty years and was a school director at the time of his death. Public interests that had for their object the welfare and progress of his community received his earnest endorsement and hearty co-operation and he was known as one of the prominent and influential residents of Menard county. He married Miss Cynthia M. Camp, who was born in Fulton county, Illinois, March 3, 1848. The marriage was celebrated September 19, 1876, and after traveling life's journey together for about twenty-four years Thomas Brasfield was called to his final rest on the 31st of December, 1900. His widow is still living and makes her home in Eureka, Illinois. They were the parents of four children: John E., of this review; Henry H., who died in boyhood; Laura C., who is now living in Eureka, Illinois, with her mother; and Bryant L., also with his mother. John E. Brasfield acquired his early education in the public schools and afterward supplemented his preliminary knowledge by study in the Springfield Business College. He worked with his father upon the old home farm until the latter's death and then took charge of the property, which he managed for three years, at the end of which time he began farming on his own account. He has also carried on stock-raising and he has now several head of registered cattle. He also raises high grade horses and by improving his stock and thereby advancing prices he has added to the prosperity of the entire community. He operates two hundred and forty acres of land, most of which is used for pasturage purposes, and in addition to this he owns one hundred and fifty acres, which he rents. On the 2d of September, 1903, Mr. Brasfield was married to Miss Aurelia Davis, a daughter of George F. and Lizzie D. (Layman) Davis. Her father was born in Sangamon county, Illinois, August 21, 1848, and the mother in Botetourt county, Virginia, October 19, 1855. They now reside near Auburn, in Sangamon county, Illinois. During his boyhood he lived at home and worked with his father, aiding in the labors of the fields all through the summer months, while in the winter seasons he acquired his education in the public schools. He has always carried on farming and stock-raising since attaining adult age and is an enterprising and progressive farmer of his community. He belongs to the Modern Woodmen of America and both he and his wife hold membership in the Court of Honor. He was married October 13, 1881, to Miss Lizzie D. Layman, and they became the parents of three children: Mrs. Brasfield, who was born November 3, 1882, in Auburn township, Sangamon county, Illinois; Hugh, who was born March 7, 1887, and died January 23, 1904; and Gerald, born September 11, 1898. Both Mr. and Mrs. Brasfield hold membership in the Christian church and he gives his political support to the Republican party. He is a young man, possessing the enterprising spirit which has dominated the west and been an important factor in its substantial upbuilding. He has already achieved creditable prosperity, which will doubtless increase for him as the years go by. http://www.rootsweb.com/~ilmaga/menard/1905bios/brasfield_je.html BRASFIELD John Ely

365 * John L. BRASFIELD married Rhoda VINES March 15, 1865 in Jefferson County, Alabama. John L. was the father of William Leonard Brasfield, who married Minnie Lee Payne. John was my maternal g-grandfather.

* William Leonard BRASFIELD married Minnie Lee PAYNE on March 14, 1903 in Walker County, Alabama. He was my maternal grandfather.

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

Howdy once again Michael! I am enclosing this email to update the children of John L. Brasfield and Rhoda Vines. On your site you have 2 sets of the same child and 1 extra that does not belong. First of all, the children named Aner, Lulen and Amanda are really Anna, Lucy and Minnie whom you do list. The Aner, Lulen and Amanda names which are mentioned in the MacAlister book are the names that Rhoda provided to the federal government when she tried to file for her widow's civil war pension after John L. died. Rhoda was illiterate and the names were written down as she pronounced them. According to my kin, Rhoda was a less than ideal mother and that my ggrandfather Henry and his sister Ida raised their younger siblings while Rhoda was off doing who knows what. I have a copy of the pension application and my ggrandfather Henry signs as a witness while Rhoda signed with an X. You also list on the site a child named Ambrose Brasfield. There was no such child. You may have him mixed up with Anna's husband Ambrose Quinn whom you do list correctly. Here is a correct list of all the children and their birthdates and spouses. There is still an ongoing debate as to Henry's birthdate. My dad says he was born in 1869, Henry's tombstone says 1871 and the 1910 census, which I chose to accept as a compromise says 1870. Aunt Ida is also debated as to 1870 or 1871 so since I am male I am saying 1871!

Henry Wadsworth Brasfield b. 1/1870 m. 1. Belle McCarty 2. Augusta Jetton
Ida Brasfield b. 1871 m. Marion Ballinger
Anna Brasfield b. 12/24/1876 m. Ambrose Quinn
Lena Brasfield b. 2/25/1878 m.Evan Quinn
William Leonard "Lee" Brasfield b. 10/29/1880 m. Minnie Lee Payne
Lucy Brasfield b. 3/14/1882 m. Hessie Quinn
Minnie Brasfield b. 10/26/1886 m. William Alexander

Ambrose and Evan Quinn were brothers and Hessie Quinn was their first cousin. I know of at least 7 occasions where Brasfields and Quinns got together and had children, including my grandparents. The birthdates for the children are taken from tombstones but as we have seen they may not be accurate as well. Thank you once again for the time that you put into this and whenever I get free time I will pass along more information. Have a nice day.

Howdy Michael,
There has been much debate and speculation in my family over which side John L. Brasfield served with during the Civil War. The McAllister book on page 607 lists him with the 1st Alabama Calvary and the 12th Tennessee. Both units were Union outfits. His wife Rhoda made a pension claim # 504437 attesting to his service. I have a copy of that pension claim from the national archives and his name was never found as being a member of any of those units nor do I believe that Rhoda ever got her pension. Given the shady and not too pleaseant reputation of my 2d greatgrandmother it is possible that she made up the story of John serving for the Union just to try to get any pension she could get her hands on. My greatgrandfather Henry W. Brasfield, Peter Copeland and Thomas and Mary Trice all signed as witnesses on her behalf. She claims that John served from 1864 till the end of the war and that he hid out in the woods while on furlough as to not be caught by the rebels. What is strange is that they were married in March 1865 while the war was still going on. I recently found a website to which shows strong evidence that John L served with the Confederates. http://www.geocities.com/coh41/13thBtlnAlParRgrs.html details the history and muster rolls of the 13th Battallion Partisan Rangers. They were a Confederate calvary unit formed in Jasper, Alabama in September 1862. Company B lists a John Brasfield, with one s, along with a few Alexanders, a CC Ballinger, WT Hancock and Daniel Trice. The names listed above are surnames that appear often in my family tree. Company C lists two McCartys as well as two Jettuns who may be Jettons. My greatgrandfather Henry married both a McCarty and a Jetton. I am convinced that John L. Brasfield did in fact serve for the Confederacy at one time. It is possible that he did switch sides later as the war turned in favor of the Union even though I can't verify his service other than what Rhoda claims. I thought that this little bit of history may be of interest to the website under your stories or Military section. The above weblink may also be a helpful tool on your site for other Brasfields interested in Civil War history. Thank you once again for your dedication to our website as always.

367 I dont know if you add information, but this is my grandfather, his wife was named pearl higgins. i am trying to find out more info, but most of his children are gone or just never cared to hear the family history. I know he was from Hueytown Alabama, and his children are John L. (II), Alice Bell, Mary Nell there are more, but privacy prevents me from giving you the info until I know more. If you could reply and let me know if there is a link that gives info on where they originally came from (i have heard ireland and liverpool), and that John was descended from a Brasfield that indentured himself to pay for passage in the 1700 or 1800. Thanks, my name is Lori Brasfield.

368 My grandfather, Major, was brother of Rufus and had two sons, Harold and John. (Not listed on RootsWeb). He was also half Cherokee, but they lived on Chickasaw Lane on the reservation because that's the only place where there was room. There was at one time the leader of the Cherokee nation who refused to live on the reservation called Chief Bowles. He was half Scottish. Red headed Cherokee. They were given most of East Texas where my family settled until the Republic of Texas army after Sam Houston was ousted betrayed and slaughtered them. After that, the survivors hid until it passed over then came back years later and just said they were white. It's a long story and I'm rambling but suffice it to say, yes there is a Cherokee connection. I can't believe I don't know the Paul in Palestine. That's right near Tyler and La Poyner where we're from. I'll ask my father. All the best, Steve BRASFIELD John Major

II page 61 Maj. S. has gone to Warner's for beef. I am drying blankets, etc., preparing to start this afternoon. Various characters of emigrants. A contented disposition the best. We begin to hear more of the emigration by other routes. This afternoon John S. Brasfield, of Platte Co., Mo., and N. B. Wood, of Savannah, Mo., made their camp here. The former came by the South Pass, the latter by Panama. Brasfield, Wm. Davenport, etc., left Fort Kearny May 7th, and on the 25th August got their teams into Hangtown dry diggings, (derived its name from some men having been hung there for stealing). J. Brasfield, Wm. Davenport, and Perry Wood, leaving the waggons on Humboldt river, 100 miles above the sink, packed into the diggings. The whole wa on the desert from the sink to Carson river, they had no water at all except from a salt water well too hot to drink nor grass; the desert is 60 miles. They suffered much. Weather intolerably warm. They walked nearly the whole way, near 500 miles. Got in August 10th, with their broken-down Indian ponies. Found very little water in these diggings; mined a good deal here; finally went over on the south fork of the American river, 10 miles above Sutter's mills. They have been more successful than they expected. All through the mining region a great many are dying with scurvy, diarrhoea, and colds settling on the lungs. All the Brasfield company have had the bloody diarrhoea. Jan. 10th or thereabouts, the whole city of Sacramento was overflowed with water to the depth of from four to five feet. As fast as they could, the people [p.61] were getting out to high ground in canoes and skiffs. Those at Brasfield's location buy their provisions at Hangtown, packing them over on their backs. Flour, $1 per lb.; bacon, $1.50 per lb.; fresh beef from 37 1/2 to 50 cents; milk, $1 per pint; sugar, coffee each 50 cents per lb.; eggs, $1 apiece; potatoes, $1 per lb.; molasses, $5 per gallon; beans, 65 cents per lb.; onions, $1.50 to $2 per lb. Fresh beef is plentiful. This is the range of prices since the rainy season commenced; from about November 1st it was raining about two-thirds Of the time, when Brasfield left (Jan. 10th). At other seasons prices are not much below the above rates. Hauling from Sacramento City is from $15 to $20 per hundred; has ranged from $25 to $50. BRASFIELD John Strode
