  • Notes 
    • REFERENCES: JOHN BRYAN FAMILY BIBLE OWNED IN 1956 BY MRS. W. M. FAUST,
      OZARK, ALABAMA; 1850 DALE COUNTY, ALABAMA FEDERAL CENSUS LISTED HIS AGE
      AS 52.

      ALTHOUGH TRADITION CONNECTS HIM WITH THE NORTH CAROLINA COLONIAL
      FAMILY, HE WAS PROBABLY A NATIVE OF GEORGIA (VARIOUS CENSUS RECORDS). HE
      MUST HAVE MARRIED HIS FIRST WIFE, REBECCA, DAUGHTER OF WILLIAM AND MARY
      PRICE, AT AN EARLY AGE SINCE THEIR FIRST CHILD WAS BORN NOVEMBER 15, 1814.

      ACCORDING TO RECORDS IN THE GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF ARCHIVES AND
      HISTORY, JOHN W. BRYAN, SCREVEN COUNTY, DREW LOT 111, DISTRICT 4, HOUSTON
      COUNTY, IN THE 1821 LOTTERY. JOHN BRYAN ALSO WAS ONE OF SEVEN BRYANS WHO
      PARTICIPATED IN THE 1832 GOLD LOTTERY IN HOUSTON COUNTY. HE MUST HAVE
      BEEN AN EARLY SETTLER FOR HOUSTON WAS CREATED IN 1821 OUT OF LAND
      ACQUIRED FROM THE CREEK INDIANS. HE WAS LIVING IN HOUSTON IN 1834 WHEN
      HIS DAUGHTER MARY MARRIED AMOS LOVE MIZELL (FACT RECORDED IN TRIBUTE TO
      A. L. MIZELL, AFTER HIS DEATH, WRITTEN BY HIS SON, DANIEL BULLARD MIZELL).

      AFTER HIS WIFE, REBECCA PRICE BRYAN, DIED IN 1829, JOHN SOON MARRIED
      HIS SISTER-IN-LAW, MRS. MARTHA KNIGHT PRICE. A WIDOW, SHE HAD TWO SONS,
      FRANK AND HARDY W. B. PRICE. IN REFERRING TO THE FAMILY THAT CONSISTED OF
      JOHN'S CHILDREN BY HIS FIRST WIFE, MARTHA'S BY HER FIRST HUSBAND, AND THE
      CHILDREN OF JOHN AND MARTHA, AMOS CRITTENDEN MIZELL WROTE IN 1955, "I
      HAVE HEARD PA SAY THAT HIS CHILDREN, HER CHILDREN, AND THEIR CHILDREN
      WERE ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY." THIS MUST HAVE BEEN A TRADITIONAL SAYING FOR
      ANOTHER DESCENDANT, DR. VIOLA KIMMEL OF BOSTON, WROTE IN 1957, "UNCLE
      HARDY SAID THAT HIS MOTHER USED TO SAY TO MR. BRYAN, 'MY CHILDREN, YOUR
      CHILDREN, AND OUR CHILDREN, ALL OF US MAKING ONE TRUE FAMILY.' "

      DATA IN THE 1850 CENSUS FOR DALE AND 1860 FOR HENRY COUNTIES
      SUGGEST THAT THE BRYANS AND MIZELLS MOVED TO DALE COUNTY ABOUT THE SAME
      TIME, AND THAT MOST OR ALL OF JOHN'S FAMILY CAME WITH HIM. IN THE 1850
      CENSUS, JOHN GAVE HIS AGE AS 52 YEARS, HIS BIRTHPLACE AS GEORGIA, AND HIS
      OCCUPATION AS FARMER. HIS WIFE GAVE HER BIRTHPLACE AS NORTH CAROLINA.

      THE BEST EVIDENCE OF THE CHARACTER OF THE BRYANS IS PRESERVED IN THE
      ORIGINAL MINUTES OF PROVIDENCE CHURCH, CLAYHATCHEE (OWNED IN 1958 BY MRS.
      IBBIE JONES LIPPS, MONTEVALLO, A DESCENDANT OF JOHN AND REBECCA).
      PERTINENT EXCERTS FROM THE MINUTES FOLLOW: PROVIDENCE MET AND FORMED A
      CHURCH WITH 10 PEOPLE ON MAY 26, 1849, AND THE FIRST SERVICE WAS THE
      LORD'S DAY SERMON BY BROTHER R. E. BROWN ON SUNDAY MORNING; THE FOLLOWING
      ARE THE NAMES -- MARTHA BRYAN, WILLIAM P. BRYAN, TEMPERANCE BRYAN, HARDY
      B. BRYAN, JOHN W. BRYAN, ....,; HARDY W. B. PRICE WAS RECEIVED BY
      EXPERIENCE ON SUNDAY, THE 27TH DAY OF MAY 1849, AND WAS BAPTIZED THE NEXT
      DAY; ON JUNE 30, "CONFERENCE THEN WENT INTO CHOICE OF DEACONS. WILLIAM
      P. BRYAN AND JEPE POUNCEY WERE NAMED AND DEDICATED AND ORDAINED BY
      BROTHER BROWN AND DULY ORDAINED MINISTERS OF CHRIST," AND "ELECTED
      BROTHER PRICE CHURCH CLERK;" ON JUNE 26, 1852, BROTHERS PRICE AND BRYAN
      WERE APPOINTED AS TRUSTEES TO WRITE AND MAKE DEED FOR CHURCH BUILDING.
      THE NAMES PRICE AND BRYAN WERE PROMINENT IN THE MINUTES FOR A NUMBER OF
      YEARS.

      THE FAMILY BEGAN TO SCATTER AFTER JOHN'S DEATH.
