Jonathan Bryan
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 7, 1708
Death: Mar. 9, 1788

White, in his "Statistics of Georgia," described Jonathan Bryan as "a tall and large man, of wonderful strength and of imposing appearance."

A new county was laid out in 1793 south of the Great Ogeechee River in Georgia, and named Bryan, in honor of Jonathan Bryan, "One of the men of mark in Georgia."

Jonathan Bryan was a patriot and considered a notorious ringleader of rebellion. He was active in events leading up to the Revolutionary War and at the age of 74 participated in the fighting around Savannah. He and his son were captured and imprisoned on Long Island.

During the Civil War Union soldiers raided the grave of Jonathan Bryan, looking for valuables they believed were hidden by the locals.
