Marcus was the son of Clement Thomas Bryant and Mary Belle Dortch. He was born in Mecklenburg VA, lived awhile in Southampton County near his father's family, and then moved to Colonial Heights with his brother Alvin abt mid 1920's. Alvin and Marcus lives the rest of their lives there. They were very close. The curator at the cemetery told me the brothers were buried head to head and that they specifically requested to be buried that way. There are descrepancies from one record to the next with Marcus. Some records say his middle name is Bernard, others Lafayette. His son Alfred says his father claims his middle name was always Bernard. Also fluctuations on his birth date. His WWI draft registration card said he was born 1892, WWII army enlistement records give his birth year as 1887, SSDI lists his birth as 1892, and another record says 1886, but his parents weren't married until 1891. The tombstone says he was born 1887.
