Query posted Mar 29, 2003

Looking for information on Edward Bryant. Born 1857 Virginia and at some point moved to Carroll County. Farmed Along the Big Black River. Listed as living in Carrollton on the 1880 census.

Had children Benjamin Robert Bryant Jul 25, 1878, Mary E. Bryant and Eddie Bryant. The family moved to Meridian, MS but I don't know when.

Edward's wife was named Sally. I would like to know Sally's last name as well as any other information you might have.

Their name was O'Bryan but was changed during a census in Carroll County - I don't know which one.

Any information would be appreciated.
