My grategrandmother was Frances Purcilla Bryant b. Dec 1841 in Mississippi d. 23 Nov 1928 in Marion Co., Ms. she was 1/4 native american, the daughter of John Bryant(Briant befor 1850) b. 1822 in Ms. and Artamisa Blackburn b. 1823 in Ms., there other children were Benjamin b. 1840, James b. 1844, & Helena b. 1855. The famley is on the 1840 Marion Co., Ms. censes, the Smith Co., Ms. 1850 censes 2ed houshold from Benjamin Bryant b. 1803 in South Carolina. They were in Larence Co., Ms. for the 1860 censes without Benjamin or Jaames, and the 2ed houshold befor Mathew Bryant b. 1810 in Alabama. It lookes like theas and several other Bryant's or Briant's should be related but no one has been abel to establish this. I'ed appreciate aneything that might link up.
