Welcome to the Thrasher Family Association web page
Members of the Thrasher Family Association are primarily descended from the southern branches of the Thrasher family, although all Thrashers are welcome. Most trace their roots back to John Thrasher and Ruth Cloud, but some are descendants of Benjamin Thrasher of Maryland or of one of the Isaac Thrasher lines from Tennessee. John Thrasher was first established in Goochland County, Virginia, which was formed from Henrico County in 1727. The Cloud family were English Quakers who first settled in Pennsylvania. The Thrashers later migrated to Georgia and from there went to Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and other areas of the South. Still others migrated West, settling in Missouri, Colorado and adjacent states.

Honoring our Thrasher Mothers
We would like to ask members to mail or email a picture of their mother. Email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Thrasher Newsletter, 1101 Christian Drive, Watkinsville, GA 30677. Never fear: if you mail a picture, I will scan it and return it to you. Then all you need to do is identify your mother and her husband, and list the names of the children, grandchildren, or great grandchildren (we just want it to be up-to-date). If your mother’s maiden or married name is not Thrasher, add a sentence about the “Thrasher connection,” such as “my mother’s grandmother was a Thrasher” or “She is the grand-niece of so-and-so Thrasher.”
