A. ( 1800-1838); William "Billy Buck" (1804-?) married
Susan KILGORE; John "Jack" (?) and Isaac W (1826-before 1870)

she was killed by Union troops at the family home in the Grundy Co.,
TN area on their retreat from the Battle of Stones River in 1863)
and Anna M (1861-1907) married to John T. "Smith" GRIFFITH.
Need lots of information on John BRYANT. It is beleived he may
be a Revolutionary War Veteran, but no information has been found.
It has been noted by others that he may have been married at least
two times. In his latter years he is found in the home of his
Isaac W BRYANT family can be found on the Grundy and Sequatchie
County, TN Census. It is thought that Isaac may have been a justice
