Lydia Orr had some mental problems and was committed to a "Lunie Asylum" in Georgia. Bryant petitioned the court for guardianship February 10, 1910. He stated that she is incompetent to handle her affairs. She owned a piece of property worth $800 at the time. The court granted his petition. Bryant was told that he could sell her land at auction to the highest bidder.
Lydia died in FL, shortly after the birth of her twelfth child, and was buried there. Afterwards her family returned to GA. When Bryant died he was buried in the family plot in the Bethel Church Cemetery, Forsyth Co, GA. Her son, that same youngest child, erected a monument to Lydia next to Bryant's final resting place.
