Family History


Lucas "Luke" BRASHER was christened on 20 Dec 1697. He died in 1736. 

He was married to Judith GASHERIE on 24 Nov 1723.

Luke was a beneficiary in his father's will.

Judith GASHERIE was christened on 30 May 1702.

In 1739 Judith bought a dwelling on Wall Street, New York (see deed).

Tony, a slave of Judith, was in the negro plot, April 1741. [New York Genealogical & Biographical Record - V.27 1896, pg.40]

Children were:

child i. Abraham, born 6 Sep 17242, christened 13 Sep Dutch Reformed Church of New York1. Died 25 Dec 17282.
child ii. Engeltje, born 26 Mar 1726, christened 3 Apr DRC1. Died 5 Apr 17292.

child v. Susannah BRASHER, born 20 Jan 17312, christened 31 Jan DRC1, died 4 Jul 17312
     Despite the generally accepted genealogy, this Susannah did not marry John Stites as she clearly died as a child. See my paper with irrefutable evidence of this.
child vi. Judith, born 10 May 17322, christened 14 May 1732 DRC1. Died 15 Apr 17342.
child vii. Abraham, born 2 Dec 17342, christened 4 Dec 1734 DRC1.
