Lash Graves in Illinois

This is an excerpt from my grgrandmothers journal. Any help linking these members or explaining what "poet Eusary" means would be really appreciated (this is a handwritten journal and I may be translating these two words wrong, but it seems plainly written):

"George M. Lash, my mothers father, died April 1, 1862, buried at the John Brunk Cemetary on Horse Creek east of Cotton Hill. Visited his grave August 2nd, 1920. Also a son Bryon Lash and one Lewis are buried there. Visited again early spring of 1925. This cemetery is short distance east of old Brunk Farm, where Dr. V. T. Linsay poet Eusary. Father once had his office in the old land mark. There is a grave mark over the Lash graves, it is a man and woman shaking hands. It says Farewell. Just a plain white slab in good condition. How I loved to have them drive over there. Stone marked Lash, look in Brunk Grave yard, back of Brunk Home, near Pawnee, Illinois.
Mary Ida Clare Earley"
