Possible Connection Between John and Morgan Bryant
Posted by: Donnie Corbin (ID *****2406) Date: February 27, 2012 at 16:59:39

I'm trying to find a family connection between Morgan Bryan, who was born 1671 in Northern Ireland and later came to Chester Co., Penn. and John Bryant who was born ca: 1760-1765. Morgan Bryan-later Bryant- emigrated to North Carolina and died there in 1763. His four sons: William, Morgan Jr.,James and Joseph established the settlement of Bryan's Station, which is now a part of present day Lexington, Ky. John Bryant was supposedly among the first Bryants to settle in Adair Co.,Ky. John died at his home in Adair Co. in 1841 and is buried in the Zion community. I feel that these two men are connected since Morgan Bryan was one of the first Morgan family pioneers to add the letter "t" to his last name and make it Bryant. Any help would be appreciated.
