During his life time, David researched the history of several Decatur and Henderson County families. His research provides important basic research on the history of families that now live or have lived in these two counties. Like all research, it is not perfect and is known to contain both errors and omissions. By policy, David's original research will not be updated to correct these errors but will be maintained in the state left by David. However, we are happy to publish the family research of any families connected with Decatur or Henderson County. We will also publish comments as notes to David's research.

  1. Robert Samuel[1] Brashear. Born, 20 Aug 1731, in Prince George Co, MD. Died, 15 Jan 1816, in Roane Co., TN. Burial in Brashear Cem., Sugar Grove Val., Roane Co., TN. "The Brashear families are of French origin and have been researched extensively on a national scale by experts in genealogy for many, many years. Troy L. Back's book 'The Brashear Story' is the best of the publications but it flounders on the Roane County portion of the story. The Brashear family's contribution to Roane may be restricted mainly to Robert Samuel Brashear and his clan who settled in the picturesque Sugar Grove Valley in 1794. His remarkable story is of prime importance because he, his sons and sons-in-law, were the first to actually settle in present-day Roane County according to documentary proof thus far produced. . . . "Robert Samuel Brashear, the son of Robert and Charity Dowell Brashear, was born August 20, 1731 in Prince George County, Maryland. He left Maryland when he was eleven years of age, and moved with his parents to Fairfax County, Virginia. When he was fifteen the family moved to what is now Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina. The Breashears families were very active members of the Buffalo Presbyterian Church which was founded in 1756, and presently occupies an entire city block in Greensboro. The Brashears were also active in county government. On August 8, 1760 Robert Samuel received North Carolina grant no. 171 (Book 14, p. 337) for 381 acres on both sides of Buffalo Creek. About 1754, Robert S. Brashear married Phoebe Nicks (1738-1811) daughter of John and Mary Nicks. All of their ten children were born in Guilford County with the possible exception of the youngest one. In [1779] Robert S. received a grant for 300 acres on a branch of Reedy Creek in what is now Sullivan County, Tennessee. In 1785 he received a patent for 402 acres on Saluda River in 96th District, South Carolina. Robert S., several sons and sons-in-law are shown in the South Carolina 1790 census. In September 1793, Robert S. and Phoebe sold (Vol. II, p. 601) their Sullivan County, Tennessee farm to their son Isaac. On 11-29-1792, Robert S. and Phoebe sold (Book C, p. 8) their 402-acre plantation on Saluda River, South Carolina to Edward Maxwell. Others in the clan sold farms, in preparation to come to Tennessee. Robert Samuel Brashear purchased (Knox Book C., p. 15) from William Reed and Abraham Swaggerty 640 acres on the first creek below the mouth of Poplar Creek. The consideration was 'lbs. of Virginia money,' dated August 8, 1794, and the witnesses were: Phillip Brashears (son), Robert Gilliland (son-in-law), and Elias Roberts (son-in-law). Birth dates indicate that they settled immediately on this Sugar Grove Valley farm. . . . "All evidence indicates that Robert Samuel Brashear was the patriarch and main spring of the clan. He was a strong, but not harsh character. He was a man of intelligence with physical and mental courage. His characteristics of level-headedness and courage have been dominant characteristics of most of his descendants as attested by their records especially as soldiers of all succeeding wars, police officers, and football players. His children adored him, and trusted his leadership. each of them named a son 'Robert Samuel' in his honor. These younger 'Robert Samuels' later played important roles in Roane history. . . ." [Roots of Roane County, Tennessee]

    He married Phoebe Nicks, 6 Aug 1754, in Guilford Co., NC. Born, 8 Jun 1738. Died, 1811, in Guilford Co., NC. Burial in Brashear Cem., Sugar Grove Val., Roane Co., TN. "Robert Samuel Brashear's wife, Phoebe, died in Greensboro, North Carolina, and was buried there. An almost unbelievable event followed. In December 1815, Robert Samuel dispatched his 21-year old grandson, Robert Samuel Gilliland, with two horses to Greensboro to disinter Phoebe's body and bring it to Sugar Grove Valley for re-burial. The task covered a period of 36 days. Details are verified by documents." [Roots of Roane County, Tennessee] Children:

    1. Philip[2] Brashear. Born, 17 Dec 1755, in Guilford Co., NC. Died, before 1812, in Roane Co., TN. Charles Brashear of San Diego, CA, writes: "We know very little about Philip.... He served in the Revolutionary War, from Guilford Co., NC. He was apparently with the clan in Sullivan Co., TN, c1780-1785, where he apparently married. He lived near his father at the time of the 1790 census, in the Ninety-Six District, pendleton Co., SC (p. 84, col 3, line 50), when he had a wife and two daughters. He moved to the Clinch area with his father c1792-4, where he is on several tax and jury lists." Children may be Minerva Brashear and Mary Elizabeth Brashear who married Peter Cattron (Kettenring).

"Samuel and Margaret spent most of their lives on the 300-acre farm which his father, Robert Samuel Brashear, had staked out on Timberlake Branch of Reedy Creek, a tributary of the Holston River." Samuel's eight children were named Margaret, Sampson, Robert S., Isaac, James N., Phoebe, John, and Ezekial.
    5. Phoebe Brashear. Born, 8 Jul 1768, in Guilford Co., NC. Died, 1834. She married, first, Stephen Rice, 1786. She married, second, Nathaniel Mason, 9 Jul 1801, in Roane Co., TN. It is not know if Phoebe Brashear had children.
    6. Margaret (Peggy) Brashear. Born, 12 Dec 1768, in Guilford Co., NC. Died, before 1805, in Cumberland Co., KY?. She married Alexander W. Mahan, before 1793.

  2. Isaac[2] Brashear (Robert Samuel, 1). Born, 23 Oct 1760, in NC. Died, 25 Jul 1833, in Perry Co., TN. Isaac Brashear was the son of Robert S. Brashear (1731-1815) and Phoebe Nicks (1738-1811) of Roane County, Tennessee. "Isaac Brashear was born October 23, 1760 in North Carolina, and died in Perry County, Tennessee before September 19, 1833. Much of Isaac's life can be documented, but tantalizing portions are yet to be proven. Strong indications have been found by many diligent researchers that he may have had as many as ten children some of whom established outstanding records in other states. "Isaac probably served in the Rev. War (no record). On April 1, 1793, Isaac bought (Sullivan Book 2, p. 601) from his father 100 acres on Reedy Creek-Holston River adjoining his brother Capt. Samuel, and apparently remained on this farm while his parents and the clan were in South Carolina. Isaac joined his parents in Roane before 1801, and is listed in the Roane 1802 militia. In 1807, Isaac bought from John McClellan 100 acres of Clinch bottom land near his father's homeplace. He was a slaveholder (B, p. 127). In 1813 he bought (D, p. 241) 274 acres from his father, but in 1814, deeded (D, p. 391) the same tract back to his father. In 1823, Isaac (of Perry County) sold (F, p. 154) his farm in Roane to Jesse Galloway. Isaac's name appears often in Roane and Perry County records. His wife's name is unknown. His "speculative children" include: 1. Zara, 2. John, 3. Robert, 4. Sarah, 5. Walter, 6. Absalom, 7. Elizabeth, 8. Samuel, 9. Jesse, 10. Zadoc. A Roane Court case indicates that Isaac died in Perry County, Tennessee between March and September 1833." [Roots of Roane County, Tennessee]

    He married, first, Unknown. Charles brashear of San Diego, CA, writes: "Isaac's wife (or wives) is (are) unknown. he had nine children, five in a matter of about six years; then there is a gap of about seven years, then he had four more children rapidly. It looks to me like he had two wives." Children:

    1. John[3] Brashears.
    2. Robert B. Brashears. Born, 5 Jan 1787, in Guilford Co., NC. Died, 26 Aug 1852, in Lawrence Co., TN. Burial in Richardson Cem., Lawrence Co., TN. He married Sarah R. Hankins, daughter of Joseph Hankins and Kizeriah.

    He married, second, Unknown. Charles Brashear of San Diego, CVA, writes: "I think (cannot prove yet) that the second wife was a Cherokee girl from the Clinch area. Circumstantial evidence includes: two of his sons from the second group were associated with Indian families: Samule m.1. in Roane, Hannah Tuten (the Tuten family have been documented as part Cherokee); Zadock, the youngest, married a Cherokee girl and took up land in Arkansas in the area where some of the Eastern Cherokee had been moved." Children:

    1. Samuel Brashers.
    2. Absalom Brashears. Born, 20 Dec 1799. Died, circa 1847. Census: 1830, in Perry Co., TN. Census: 1840, in Perry Co., TN. He married Unknown, circa 1809. Census figures for Absalom Brasher. Perry County 1830: 111011-20001; Perry County 1840: 101101-212001. No listing in 1850 in Tennessee. The entire family of Absalom Brashears seems to have left Tennessee before 1850.
    3. Jesse Brashears.
    4. Zadoc Brashears. Born, circa 1805. Census: 1830, in Perry Co., TN. Census: 1840, in Perry Co., TN.

His name may have been Zedekiah. One of his nephews, a son of John, appears alternately as Zedekiah and Zadoc in later censes.

    He married, third, an unknown woman. Children:

    She married Elias Roberts, circa 1786, in SC. Died, Sep 1806, in Roane Co., TN. Burial in Roberts Cem., Roane Co., TN (destroyed). "Elias Roberts was a member of the Brashear clan by marriage. Although public records contain much information concerning Elias and his family, little

    is known of his early life despite many years of intensive research. He married (probably in South Carolina in late 1786) Rebecca Brashear (1771-1859). In 1793 Elias and Rebecca sold two plantations located at the mouth of George's creek near Greenville, South Carolina, and came to Roane County with her father in 1794. After helping the clan to clear land, build mills, etc., Elias leased and occupied before 1798 a 500-acre tract astride Poplar Creek at the present Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plant site. On June 4, 1799, Elias bought (E, p. 306) this 500-acre tract from Stockley Donelson. Specimen of Elias' handwriting indicate that he was an educated man. He was young enough (under 50) to be enrolled in the Roane 1802 militia. In september of 1806, he died from an unknown cause. He had been living long enough to prove his industriousness, and as proof of his virility, by 1806, he had become the father of ten living children." [Roots of Roane County, Tennessee] Children:

    1. Edward C.[3] Roberts. Born, circa 1787, in SC. Died, 5 Sep 1841. He married Susan Ballard, 1 Sep 1812, in Roane Co., TN.
