Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 14, 1859
Pickens County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Apr. 26, 1936
Harriman
Roane County
Tennessee, USA

Son of Leonard Dryman & Nancy Alexander Dryman. His dad Leonard was killed during the Civil War.

Bill's first wife was Minda Godfrey, they had three children, Alta, Lee & Lake. They made their home in Whitfield Georgia until Minda's death.

After she passed away (between 1895-1900) he moved to Tennessee to be closer to his sister Nancy. I believe the children lived with various family members.

After moving to Roane County he met & married Minnie Kirkland & had two more children, Mary & Donald Blaine Dryman. His second wife died 6 years after their marriage leaving him with the two small children. Bill was a fur dealer & spent lots of time away so Mary & Blaine went to live with their mothers sister in Harriman.
