There are some McBrayer's still living here in Lawrenceburg. and yes there is a McBrayer family graveyard containing over 27 graves.Wiliam McBrayer is buried here and he was a Rev. Soldier died 1820 aged 66(I have a list of others buried here) cemetery located 1 1/2 miles west of town on highway 44.
Capt. John McBrayer led Anderson County troops during Mexican War at Battle of Buena Vista.
and a Richard McBrayer served in CSA army during Civil War
the McBrayers made their way into Anderson County by way of McAfee Station in nearby Mercer County. 1 Hugh McBrayer (brother of Wm.???) was captured by Indians here and spent several years as a captive.
I am not a decendant, but an Anderson County researcher and know this much from memory. I can send the other names buried here at a later time. I came across this data while documenting Anderson's pioneer graveyards.
If interested , I do offer a research service, but I'm not sure when I can take on another project.
hope this helps
