Grandma Bryant Dead - Died, Dec. 30th, at the home of her son T. A. Bryant, about 12 miles east of Pawhuska on Sand Creek, Hannah Bryant, aged 90 years, 6 months, and 24 days. she was buried in the Peru Cemetery Thursday, Dec. 31st.

Grandma Bryant as she was commonly known, was born in Kentucky June 6, 1806. When but a child only 4 years old, her parents, Joseph and Fancy Frakes, moved to Indiana, where they endured the horrors of the Indians for two years. At the age of 15 years she was maried to Williams, with whom she raised 6 children, 3 boys and 3 girls. In 1836 Williams died leaving her a widow for 7 years, when she was married to William Bryant by whom there were 4 children of which Thomas is the only one living and with whom she has made her home since the death of her husband in March 1867.

They moved from Indiana to Missouri in 1844 where they lived through the late war, in which she had three sons engaged. In 1870 they moved to Kansas, Chase county near Matfield and thence to Chautauqua county in 1880. 2-1/2 miles northwest of Peru and 5 miles east of Sedan. Afterwards moved to the Indian territory in 1893.

Grandma had very good health considering old age up until about 3 months before she died. Was able to go to the kitchen and eat dinner Saturday before her death, Wednesday morning at 3 o'clock.

Note: Her 2nd husband, William Bryant died in Cass County, Missouri in 1867 and is presumably buried there. Although, the exact location of his gravesite is unknown at this time.

Hannah's memorial created in Peru Cemetery based on Newspaper obituary. I do not know what plot Hannah is buried in or whether their is a grave marker. She may be buried in an unmarked grave.
