My great grandfather was Joseph Francis Bryant. and his first wife, Rhoda Jane Manus , was my great grandmother.
(note from deb: my grandmother Grace Maxwell Brown & great aunt Minerva Maxwell Brown had Joseph's middle name as FAWCETT)
Stephen Ora Bryant was my grandfather, he was never married to anyone named MADGE. He was married only once, May 2 1900 to Blanche Snyder. At the time of the 1910 census they lived in San Diego, CA. He died in 1927, and is buried in Miriam Cemetery, Bethany, MO. Blanche Snyder Bryant is buried next to him. She died in 1971.
I also answered the question you had about the two Bryant children in this same lot at Miriam Cemetery.
These Bryants were descendants of an original French Huguenot family who settled in Manakintowne, VA. (Briands/Briant, etc.) They were not English. This website below also lists the 15 children of John & Mary Owsley Bryant. My ancestor in this list is James Guerrant Byrant. Middle name was his mothers name. There is a mistake in this information as their son, Daniel, as listed, should be Daniel G. His middle name was also Guerrant.

thanks for correcting this.
