His father was John Bryant son of David Bryant (1760) and Sarah Gibson (1764) and his mother Betsy Duval 1793-1813 Father Daniel Duval mother Sarah Carter. He supposedly was a cousin of General Bryant. He married Lydia Virginia Cauley from Mississippi. She had children already Needham and William Temples. Needham and William are names of Chickasaw Mingo's. She was said to be Choctaw, but I think she might have been Chickasaw. This is all I know Helen. If you find anything else, Let me know. Oh by the way Needham and William of the Chickasaw were Bryant's.
