Wm. J. Bryan was the son of James Wilson "Jim" and Mary Alice LITTLE Newton.
Wm. J. Bryan married Anna Belle Scallions Aug 14, 1924 in Charleston, Tallahatchie County, Mississippi. They had twelve children; four sons and eight daughters.
Uncle Bryan was a hard working, kind and gentle man. He was patient with all those children and was a kind loving father. He was also a good husband and a friend to everyone.

I remember in 1943 I was thinking of marrying a soldier stationed in Greenville, Ms where we lived. I wrote Mabel and Hazel the news. Uncle Bryan answered and with his advice I did not marry and have been thankful to him ever since.
I love and miss you, Uncle Bryan. Love and hugs from Bea.
