Bryant comments

Bryantsville, KY was named for James Guerrant Bryant, John and Mary Owsley Bryant's son: "JAMES GUERRANT BRYANT: The town of Bryantsville, Kentucky, founded 9 Feb. 1836 was named for James G. Bryant. Here is the text of the legislation which established the town: Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, that the town now laid off and created in the county of Garrard, near the Burnt tavern, on the land of James Bryant, shall be and the same is hereby established and known by the name of "Bryantsville," and that James G. Bryant, William Daniel and Samuel M. Graham, be, and they are hereby appointed trustees of said town." (fron: The Central Record, 22 Oct. 1992, Garrard Co. Ky.) James and other Bryants are buried on a knoll at the north end of town, under a cluster of trees." Jean

Stephen Ora Bryant was my grandfather. He was never married to anyone named Madge. He was married only once, to Blanche Snyder, on May 2, 1900. Blanche Snyder Bryant is buried next to him in Miriam Cemetery, Bethany, MO.

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.

Joseph F. Bryant's middle name was Francis, not Fawcett. (See William's History of NW MO, etc.) He was my great grandfather. Thank you.
