I'm doing research on the Brians Family that was around Cabarrus, NC around 1790s. I have traced back to William Brians, B 1789 Married to Hannah Milster. Son, John H., Later moved to Panola Co. Mississippi and then to Lonoke Arkansas. .
I can't find information on William's ancestors.
Family oral history states that there was a name change at some time. Possibly Bryance was the original name.
Any help would be appreciated.
