|Bio and Links|
My wife and I are retired University faculty/administrators. We enjoy travel in our small Casita camper/trailer, photography, our adult children and genealogy. We are new to Graving and thus far have limited this new hobby to finding early American ancestors of notoriety who were either pioneers, statesmen, business leaders, Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and/or the War of Northern Aggression participants. (-: In an earlier life I taught secondary history, and government. I am preparing a photo book of military ancestors for my Navy Officer son. He can brag that he has a relative that either served, and/or was a war veteran in every US war up through Vietnam. I find that graving, history, and genealogy are a great combination. Our home is in South Carolina which is ideal for the above combination. My wife grew up in NY state, and has many Revolutionary War ancestors buried in and around Massachusetts. Sooo, we have many fun adventures ahead of us.|

I know what you mean. I have a 2 or 3 or 10 :) folks that have brick walls. Keep plugging away and when you least expect it, that's when they'll show themselves.
At least that's what I tell myself.
|Mary and Kent||RE: Mary Bryant|
Hey there Joseph,
I believe that Bryant was her married name. There is a John and Mary Bryant, husband and wife, listed in the 1860 Census for Carroll County TN and it says both were born in Virginia. They lived near the Fuqua's, the family I had been researching at the time. I came across the burial information for the Fuqua cemetery which included an entry for Mary Bryant. That's really all I know about Mary Bryant.
