Birth: 1710
Essex County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Jun. 25, 1784
Springfield
Union County
New Jersey, USA

Records indicate Simeon's baptism was April 22, 1711 to parents Margreitje Simese Van Winkle Winne (1676-1730) and Cornelius Breyandt (1676-1720). Simeon's actual birth date is not known.

At this time, the burial places of Margreitje and Cornelius are unknown. Margretitje and Cornelius had six known children:

Annetje Bryant Kip (1702-1727)
Johannes Briant (1704-1787)
Hendrickje Bryant Carle (1709-1770)
Simeon Bryant (1710-1785)
Rachel Bryant (1712-unk)
Andrew Briant (1713-1749)

The eldest brother, Johannes OR John Briant (1704-1787) presumably rests in Randolph, NJ, along with many of his descendants, as 'Hanus' fled the Springfield NJ area after the Battle of Springfield in 1780. His grave however is not known.
