My line is through William Briant/Bryant who was born in VA and died in Spartanburg Co. SC. His son William Reuben, married to Sarah Whidley had a son named Berryman Bryant who was a medical doctor in California. His obituary and memories all mention his parents, birthplace, etc. But I can't find Berryman in any of my research other than in research in CA. i am wondering if the book mentions him. I think there may be some kind of mystery around his birth or perhaps he was estranged from his parents. But th "story" is that he had a very fine medical education because he was part of the Bryant family.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
