     Birth:      Oct. 23, 1760, Guilford County, North Carolina, USA
     Death:      Jul. 25, 1833, Decatur County, Tennessee, USA
     Isaac Brashears was born October 23rd, 1760 in Orange/Guilford County, North Carolina (it was Orange County at the time, now Guilford County)* to Robert Samuel Brashears and Phoebe Nicks. It's believed he was named after an uncle who did not survive into adulthood. The Brashears families are originally of French origin, of the original surname Brasseur (also seen in the US as Brassier - spellings are commonly off due to high illiteracy in this time period, including census takers jotting down names as they interpret from how they sound).
     *In the exact year 1760, Robert Samuel Brashears was issued a patent for 381 acres of land in Orange County, NC, not yet renamed Guilford County.
     Isaac's father Robert Samuel's family moved from Maryland to Fairfax County, VA when he was 15 (1746), then founded a Brashears colony on the banks of the Reedy Haw River and Buffalo Creek area in present-day Guilford County, NC (he lived there at least until 1753). Over the next few years, Robert Samuel was issued land patents between the Carolinas, including a 1785 patent for 402 acres of land on the Saluda River in SC.
     By the time Isaac was born, Robert Samuel owned land in Orange County, NC (1760). The family then migrated to Sullivan County, TN (1779), and built a large house near the Timber Lake Branch of Reedy Creek, not far from present-day Kingsport. Because the home stood noticeably on a hill about 200 yards above the Kentucky Wilderness Road to Kentucky, Brashears were well-known to social travelers. They would often stop by the Brashears home to visit. Isaac and his brother Samuel apparently stayed behind for a time while their father Robert Samuel, brother Philip and the younger siblings went to the Pendleton District of South Carolina.
     Around 1793, patriarch Robert Samuel Brashears and his sons Philip and Isaac (also some sons-in-law) had settled and began to start families in a new area of Tennessee, just off the Clinch River in present-day Roane County. In 1794, Robert Samuel Brashears registered a deed from Reed and Swagerty for 640 acres of land on Poplar Creek and the Clinch River, in a section of Knox county that would later become Roane County (see Knox Co. Deeds Book c, pg. 15). The Brashears clan is known as the first settlers of Roane County, and this area is known as Sugar Grove Valley, near the town of Kingston. Robert Samuel Brashears is listed as one of the first white settlers of Tennessee.
     Isaac Brashears's signature appears on a petition in 1801 to create Roane County from a portion of Knox County.
     On Aug 26 1813, Robert Samuel Brashears deeded 247 1/4 acres in the north side of the Clinch River to his son Isaac. An identical transaction was made by Robert Samuel to another son, Isaac's brother Samuel, recorded to be of Sullivan County - he was finally moving close to his family in present-day Roane County.
Strangely enough, just three months later, both brothers deeded the land back to their father.
     Isaac Brashears was summoned to jury duty in Roane County in 1802, 1805, 1810, 1816, and 1817. He is listed in the August 1815 List of Voters, and on another petition with his father R.S. in 1815 for the construction of a road.
     MIGRATION TO WEST TENNESSEE:
Around 1820, Isaac Brashears and five of his sons (along with a daughter Betsey and son-in-law Hugh Carroll Crumbliss) moved to the west side of the Tennessee River into what is now Perry County. Another son, Robert, moved earlier to Lawrence County, TN, two counties to the west of the Tennessee River. Several cousins, sons of Isaac's uncle Zaza Brashears, also joined them in Perry County and settled in the east side of the river, near Isaac's Brashears clan. On July 14 1825, Isaac Brashears received Tennessee Land Grant #23950, 82 acres in Perry County (now encompassed by Decatur Co.) He recorded the grant in Murfreesboro on September 9 1825, the same day his youngest son Zadock recorded a land grant in the same district and section. The "extinction" of the Chickasaw Indian Title to West Tennessee opened up previously unsettled land west of the Tennessee River. In true fashion of his father Robert Samuel, Isaac and his children carried on the pioneer traditions and followed the path much akin to Daniel Boone's travels, treading into Indian territory for new land.
     On March 4 1823, he is referred to as "Isaac Brashears of Perry County" when he was selling the remainder of his Roane County land (100 acres) to his grandson-in-law, Jesse Galloway, for $900.
     Here is a transcription of Isaac's Perry County land purchase, including dates & other info:
     "The State of Tennessee No. 23930
     To all to whom these presents shall come, Greetings: Know ye, that by virture of part of Certificate No. 4962, dated the 21st day of January 1826, issued by the Register of west Tennessee to George Jenkins for 326 acres and entered on the 17th day of may 1824 as an occupant claim under the act of 1824, my No 76 there is granted by the said State of Tennessee unto Isaac Brashears assignee of the said George Jenkins A certain tract or parcel of land, containing Eighty two acres by survey bearing the date the date the 18th day of June 1824, lying in the Ninth District in Perry County, Eight range and Seventh Section on the waters of the Tennessee River and bounded as follows, to wit: beginning at a stake, poplar and white oak pointers, two hundred and thirty four poles West of the branch post west of the north east corner of said Section, runs then West one hundred and forty two poles to a black Oak, thence South ninety three poles to a white oak, thence East one hundred and forty two pole to a hickory, then North ninety three poles to the beginning...
With the Hereditaments and Appertenances to have and to hold and said tract or parcel of land with his appertenances to the said Isaac Brashears and his heirs forever. In witness whereof, William Carroll, Governor of the State of Tennessee, hath hereunto set his hand and caused the great seal of the state to offices, at Murfreesboro on the 11th day of July in the year of our Lord, one thosand eight hundred and twenty five and of the Independence of the United States the 50th. By the Governor"
     After the move to Perry County, TN, the 1830 census is the last census on which he appears, so we've known that his passing must have been between 1830-1840. Decatur County was created from a portion of Perry County in 1846, where some records of the Brashears descendants can be found. Absalom Brashears inherited the land from his father. Betsy Brashears and her husband Hugh Crumbliss eventually traveled to Tishomingo County, MS in the 1820s, eventually changing the surname to Crumby. But Betsey's brothers stayed behind in Perry County.
     An entry in the Family Bible of Samuel Brashears, Isaac's son, reads: "Isaac Brashears Sr, my Father, departed this life the 25th day of July in the year of our Lord 1833."
     SELLING OF THE BRASHEARS LAND TO THE MORGANS: Isaac's son Absalom Brashears inherited his land in Perry Co. When Absalom died, his widow (seems to be Ellender?) sold the home to William Morgan, who kept the land in his family for almost an entire century. In 1968, it was owned by a Lathan Blount.
     **Private Property - visiting without permission is trespassing.**
     On this land is the "Morgan Cemetery," with many illegible and crumbling tombstones. Natural occurrences, such as flooding from the River and overgrowth, have weathered these graves tremendously. Clearing of the property also may have done damage (this is currently private property). Some of the interred with legible tombstones younger than Isaac and his sons appear to be in this cemetery; however, several bear the name Brashears. The Permelia here was a granddaughter of Isaac's. This was not originally the Morgan family cemetery, but was the Brashears family homestead and cemetery, where Isaac settled and is most definitely buried.

     Isaac Brashear is born in Orange Co., North Carolina, presently Guilford Co.. The family had come here from Maryland about 1753 and settled on the Reedy Fork of the Haw River and Buffalo Creek.
     1770's - Robert Samuel Brashear with some of his sons moves west into the territory of what is now Sullivan Co. Tennessee. Here they built a house near Timberlake branch of Reedy Creek, north of the Holston River, not too far from what is now Kingsport, TN. this house stood on the shoulder of a hill, some 200 yards above the Wilderness Road to Kentucky.
[Charles Brashears, Brashears Family Records ]
     Isaac and Samuel stayed with the land while their other brother Robert Samuel and Philip went on to Pendelton Dist., South Carolina. Samuel ends up inheriting this house and land. [Charles Brashears, Brashears Family Records, (unpublished1996)]
     1793 - "Robert Samuel Brashear with his sons Philip and Isaac Brashear and some of his sons-in-law had moved to the banks of the Clinch river in present-day Roane County Tennessee. They were on the west bank of the river, where Cherokee Indian title was not "extinguished" until 1808. There, Robert Samuel built a block house of squared, Yellow Poplar logs in Sugar Grove Valley. The holdings were on a creek called Brashears Creek, which empties into the Clinch river at Brashears Island. Edwards and his wife tore down the last remnants of the old block house and built their home on the site. Robert Samuel Brashears, the Rolling Stone, is buried behind this house, as is Phoebe, Robert's wife, and a number of other, including the Ladd grandparents of Senator Howard Baker." [Charles Brashears, Brashears Family Records, (unpublished1996)]
     1801 - Isaac Brashear signs a petition to create Roane County from a portion of Knox Co. The document also includes the signatures of James DeArmand, Joseph Hankins, Stephen Rice (m. Isaac's sister, Phoebe Brashears) Basil(Bazzel) Brashears (Isaac's brother, Basil, born. 1781, would have been 20 years old, this may be a cousin), John Brashears (relationship unknown: Isaac's own son, John, would have been 15 years old or so), Robert Samuel Brashears (Isaac's father), Philip Brashears (Isaac's brother), Daniel Mason (m. Isaac's sister, Mary "Polly" Brashears), Nathaniel Mason (2nd husband of Isaac's sister, Phoebe), John Gilliland, Steven Rice (1st husband of Isaac's sister, Phoebe, and Bas. Beshears (? does that make three Basils present in Roane in 1801?). [Charles Brashears, Brashears Family Records, (unpublished1996 to be in Vol. 2)]
     1802 Isaac was in Capt. Gray Simms's Militia Co., one of seven militia companies formed for the new county of Roane Co., Tennesee. [Wells, History of Roane County]

By the Governor
     1833- entry in the Family Bible of Samuel Brashers, Isaac's son, reads:
Isaac Brashers Sr my father departed this life the 25th day of July in the year of our Lord 1833
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 be like he had two wives; I think (cannot prove yet) that the second wife was a Cherokee girl from the Clinch area. circumstantial evidence includes: three of his sons from the second group were associated with Indian families: Samuel married an Indian in Roane Co., Hannah Tuten ( the Tuten family have been documented as part Cherokee); Zaddock, the youngest, married a Cherokee girl and took up land in Arkansas in the area where some of the Eastern Cherokees had been moved;' Jesse moved to Arkansas and also took up land in the Cherokee "reservation."

     Hello! The Isaac Brashear sibling connected to this Samuel Brashears (Memorial# 11037204) listed as a child to Robert Samuel Brashears is NOT the correct Isaac - the date shows it's actually not even in the same generation, and his parents/siblings do not match this Brashears family. Isaac Brashears, the correct son of Robert Samuel "The Rolling Stone" Brashears and his wife Phoebe Nicks, was born Oct 23, 1760, in Guilford, North Carolina. The Brashears settleing into Roane County frequently mentions his oldest sons Isaac and Philip. Robert Samuel's Revolutionary War service awarded them land in TN. They moved from Sullivan County to be possibly the first documented settlers of Roane County, TN, before the Cherokee Indian Tile was extinguished in 1808. Isaac and and his sons later moved to Perry County, TN, where he falls off censuses after 1830 without a substantiated death date or burial records. He died between 1830-1840. Without burial information, the correct Isaac currently does not have a Memorial #.
     I hope this information is helpful! I'm descended from the correct Isaac Brashears, and my family is actively searching for his death and burial information.

Robert B. Brashears died on 26 August 1852 at Leoma, Lawrence Co., Tennessee, USA, at age 65.2,3
Robert B. Brashears was buried on 26 August 1852 at Crabb Cemetery, Leoma, Lawrence Co., Tennessee, USA; From Find A Grave:
     Birth:      Jan. 5, 1787, Roane County, Tennessee, USA
     Death:      Aug. 26, 1852, Leoma, Lawrence County, Tennessee, USA
     As seen in some other early gravestones, the stone for Robert B. Brashears (also known as Brashers) has an error in the spelling of his name. The engraver either misread or misheard the Brashears/Brashers surname as Beshares, probably mistaking an 'r' for an 'e'.
     Robert B. Brashears added the title "Esquire" after his name which, in early America, meant he had held some type of local office; for example, sheriff or Justice of the Peace.
     Robert B. Brashears married Sarah Rhea "Sally" Hankins on 11 Nov 1808 in Roane Co., TN. He was the son of Isaac L. Brashears and grandson of Robert Samuel Brashears.
