Henry O. Bryant

{after recieving a couple of emails with corrections from a Bryant who found my blog...have been looking for my 'original' genealogy from my grandmother Grace Brown and great aunt Minerva Maxwell. and found this stuff in the meantime! I know grandma & aunt minerva didn't give me any sources of where they found their information....and in the beginning I was bad about not recording my sources as well. need to get back to the Harrison County Genealogy Library to verify where my info came from!}

(ok...George Albert was the son of Henry O. and Nancy Ellen by dates. but Thomas Otis was born Oct 6 1857.....Nancy died in 1855, he married Loue Jane in 1859? one of these dates can't be right.....???)
