John James Thrasher (b.1909 - d.1956) was married to Helen Thrasher.

A 1953 Nevada State Journal newspaper article says that J.J. Thrasher "owns an interest in the general store, is a partner in the Gerlach-to-Reno truck line, holds the distributorship for an oil company, sells electric power to the residents and has ranching interest." "Until two years ago Thrasher sold his own diesel-generated power to most of the reseidents. Now, however, he purchases electricity from the Sierra Pacific Power Co. and re-sells it for domestic and business use."
