Edith Vein Bryant Barger
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 2, 1868
Gibson County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Sep. 29, 1940
Madison County
Tennessee, USA

Edith is the daughter of Zachariah Ryle and Martha Ann Browning Bryant. She was born in "Gibson Corners" and was living in Milan at the time of her death. Her TN Death Certificate says she died 29 Sept 1940, even through her marker says 19 Sept. Also, her funeral was held Oct 1, 1940, so I believe the 29th to be correct for the 1940 era. She was struck by an automobile and taken to Webb Williamson Hospital where she died within 4 hrs. from shock due to multiple fractures of legs, hips, and shoulder.

Her middle name is spelled many ways and is Vein on her TN Death Certificate and on family trees of closer relatives. I've used it here as it is the only legal document spelling I have. Edith had 5 sisters and 2 brothers to my current knowledge and they are:

Josephus Seph, Sr. Bryant 1865 1956
Minnie Onet Bryant 1867 1947
Elizabeth Bryant 1869
Mary Louvinia Bryant 1871
Villula "Lula" Bryant 1873 1907
David Sampson Bryant1874 1956
Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" Bryant 1876 1946

On 23 Dec 1884, she married Flemming Sugar Barger in Carroll Co., TN. They lived in Gibson Co. and raised 4 girls and 6 boys:

Clarra Lucille Barger 1885
Ruel Alma Barger 1886 1954
Ivan Josephus Barger 1887 1957
Lucille Barger 1889
Hubert Z Barger 1891
Ocie Vernon Barger 1894 1988
Sibyl Elizabeth Barger Daniels 1896 1974 in Oakwood Grid #29814381
Wiley Flemming Barger 1899 1907
Eric "Tom" Barger 1901 1981
Martha A Barger 1904

Flemming and Edith farmed for a living and lived most of their adult lives in Gibson County where they raised their family. They are both buried here. Edith's funeral was held 1 Oct 1940. Edith is my 2nd cousin, 2x removed.

COD: Shock - Multiple leg & hip fractures from being struck by an automobile

May you rest peacefully Edith...
