Dear Sandra,

Not meaning to be flipant, but where to begin?
Which Ahas or Ahaz are you searching for?
My grandfather was Ahaz and his grandfather was Ahas.
Ahas Bryan, son of Thomas Bryan Jr., son of Thomas Bryan Sr., son of Cornelius. Ahas was born 29 Jan 1793 in Linville Creek,Rockingham,Virginia. He died 29 Aug 1852 in ,Mercer County, Missouri. He is buried in Collings Cemetery next to his wife Mary (Webb- last name is unproven). I just did the calculations using the PAF date calculator. Ahas is listed on his gravestone as 59 yrs. and 8 mo. When I do the calculation, his birthday is 29 Dec 1852. One of the data is incorrect!
Next to them is Elizabeth J. Bryan, wife of A. W. Bryan, son of Ahas Senior.
My Grandfather was Ahaz Bryan, bn.14 Feb 1857, in Mercer County, Missouri. His father was Benjamin Bryan, son of Ahas, mentioned earlier.
Ahaz died in 23 nov 1920 in Coweta, Wagoner, Oklahoma. He was married 1. to Sarah A. Clapham, who died in Missouri during childbirth. He was married 2. to Addie Jane Wilson, She died 26 Nov 1948. I attended her funeral. I rode home with an Uncle in his wagon drawn by a team of horses. Sticks in my mind.
Now back to the question of who you are searching for?
Some people are doing hurried research and sometimes skip generations or diverge on the family tree.
Compare the info I have given you and let me know if it fits what you are seeking.
