Marilea,

I know nothing of the particular Bryants that you mentioned in this forum, but I have an interesting story to tell.

First, have any of the male Bryants you seek had their y-DNA tested?

On with the story, I served in the Army, and while visiting the Army store (PX), I noticed a person who looked like my brother out of the corner of my eye. His back was turned to me as I approached him. When I got his attention, he turn around, and his name tag said BRYANT. At first, I thought that he was one of my long lost cousins from around Mansfield, LA. We talked for awhile, and he mentioned that his father was from the Stutguart, AR area. He also said that his father was in his 80's. My grandfather's brothers lived in Helena, AR. This encounter took place in 1992, and that was the last I saw of him.

Thanks for listening.

Ken Bryant
