Sarah Platt Bryan
Hi Mindy,

I wanted to respond to the edit you sent for Sarah, but your edit did not contain an email address. I had actually already come to the same conclusion a couple of years ago, however, while I had corrected my Ancestry tree, I had not updated F.A.G. I've adjusted my note on Sarah's memorial, however, you will need to contact the contributor for Richard (1666-1734)to have them update that memorial. Below is a genealogy I posted to my Ancestry tree back in 2012, which further helps to track the Bryan family. Thought you might find this useful.

BRYAN descendency- Families of Early Milford, CT

FAMILIES OF EARLY MILFORD, CONNECTICUT
Surnames, A-B ; page 124
Alexander Bryan s of Thomas and Frances (Bowling) was baptized Aylesbury, co. Bucks, England 23 September 1602 and died Milford 20 November 1679. He married 1/ 1631 Anne Baldwin who was baptized March 1605/6 North Church, Herts, England and died Milford 20 February 1661 dau of Robert and Joanne of North Church. He married 2/ Mrs. Susanna (__) Whiting, Fitch who was buried Middletown, Conn. 8 July 1673 widow of William Whiting and Samuel Fitch. His will dated 24 April 1678 mentions his son Richard and various grandchildren but no daughters. He was one of the most prominent settlers of Milford and a most energetic merchant. He was a freeplanter in 1639 having lot #23 in Milford consisting of 4 acres and 25 poles, located on the present corner of Rivert Street and Broad. As early as 1640 he sent a vessel to Boston laden with beaver and other precious furs, and in return bought such goods as was needed in Milford. His credit was so good that in Boston his notes were passed as currency. In 1650 he was granted a plot of land 60 by 20 for a warehouse and it later became the public wharf. In 1655 and 1659 his signature was on agreements of purchase for more land from the Indians.From the original manuscript Milford Land records in the State Library in Hartford, Conn. we learn that on the 2nd of June 1651 “Henry Stonehill of Bristow Causway on ye Islan(d) of Lamboth in ye county of Surr(e)y” appointed as his attorneys John Astwood and Benjamin Fenn “to receave an account of my cuzen Alexander Bryant [sic] of Milford” and to sell house and lands “in New England” (John Astwood resigned his power of attorney in favor of Micah Tomkins of Milford 2 November 1653)”. In 1675 he with his son Richard, also a merchant, and William East owned two brigs and sloops which they kept engaged in trade to the West Indies and Boston. He was also interested in the political affairs of the colony and in 1655 selected by the New Haven Colony to send the laws of the colony to England to be printed, and to ship as a merchant the provisions to Barbadoes to procure the money to pay the bill for printing, thus indicating that he ws the most extensive tradesman the colony had. He was a magistrate from Milford in 1668-1679.
