Regarding the two children you asked question about at the end of your post:

Alexander H. Bryant was the son of Stephen C. Bryant and Jane Hancock Bryant, also buried in Miriam Cemetery, same location.

Mary L. Bryant was the daughter of Joseph Francis Bryant and Rhoda Jane Manus Bryant, also buried in same location.
