{ transcribed, extracted, and [edited] from "Biographical History of Westchester County, New York Vol.2 ; Lewis Publishing (1899) pgs. 613-614} of Elias Bryant (1837-1918). }

"Elias Bryant, Jr., our subject's father was born in 1800, in New Jersey and throughout life followed the stone and brick mason's trade. He married Miss Electa Meeker, a native of Morris County and a representative of two of the honored old families of that state, the Meekers and Skinners, eighteen of their members being soldiers of the Revolutionary war. Fannie Meeker, an aunt of our subject, is still living, aged ninety-four years. The children born to Elias and Electa Bryant were Isaac, who died at the age of eighteen years; Jacob, a resident of Scranton, Pennsylvania; Phebe, wife of Lewis Sturges, of Tarrytown, New York; Amada B., of Tarrytown; Eveline deceased wife of James L. Minnerly; and Elias, our subject. The mother died at the age of forty-six years, and the father was again married having by the second union two children: Van Cleave D., deceased; and Frederick, a resident of West Virginia. The father was called to his final rest at the age of seventy-one years. He was a Democrat in politics and a Presbyterian in religious faith."

The resting places of this Elias's father and grandfather are unknown. His paternal great-grandfather was Simeon Bryant (1710-1784).
