I found this link today in the Iowa Gravestone Photo project. Sarah R. (Hill) Brasfield (1806 - 1879). Looking at the Brassfield-Brasfield webpage, I believe this is the wife of John Wiley Brasfield. She is the mother of Wiley D. Brassfield, who is the father of Elvis H. Brassfield, who is the father of Floyd Gipson Brassfield. I'll have to put this cemetery on my list to visit. It's Southwest of Des Moines. A map follows the jump.
There are a few other graves there as well:
Abigail M. (Brassfield) Stout, daughter of John and Sarah (Hill) Brassfield. Abigail was the sister of Wiley D. and connects to Floyd Gipson that way.
Victoria Naomi Brassfield, two year old daughter of John D Brassfield. John D. was the brother of Wiley D. Brassfield (who was the father of Elvis H. Brassfield, who was the father of Floyd Gipson Brassfield to get us back to Floyd).
