Sarah "Sally" Stanton Bryant

Birth: 1808
North Carolina, USA
Death: 1880
Claiborne County
Tennessee, USA


Sarah "Sally" (Stanton) Bryant was born about 1808 in North Carolina. Her parents are currently unknown.

A number of family trees show her name as Mary, Frances, Francis, and Fanny. However, it should be noted that the US Census for 1850, 1860 and 1870 all show her name as Sally, an old time nickname for Sarah.

Sally married Garret Neal Bryant (1801-abt 1890) about 1825 in North Carolina. Sally and Garrett migrated to Greene Co., Tennessee in the late 1820s and then on to Claiborne Co., TN by 1840.

Sally and Garret appear in the 1840, 1850, 1860 and 1870 US Censuses living in Claiborne Co., TN. The 1870 census gives their post office as Cumberland Gap, TN.

Sally and Garrett were married for at least 45 years and had nine known children. They are listed in Garret's memorial.

The 1880 US census shows Sarah's husband, Garret, as 79 years old, divorced and living with two of his daughters, Octavia and Orlena, ages 25 and 21.

As to Sally's death date all we know is that she died after 1870. It is possible that Sally died in the 1870s, that her husband Garret remarried and by 1880 had divorced. In either case, Sally is thought to have died between 1870-80 in Claiborne Co., TN in her 60s and to have been buried in the Scott Cemetery in a grave that is now unmarked. This cemetery, established in 1870, has several unmarked early burials. The earliest burial with a readable marker is 1884.
