The "mansion" you refer to may be the "Hunt House" built in the mid-1800's. This property is near (if not on) the old Bryan land grant. It is located in Yadkin County just north of the Davie County line on Farmington Road. The Bryan family left this area after the revolution. Most of their land had been confiscated; and any trace of their residence here, including the family graveyard, destroyed. (A local historian has said the Widow Bryan's tombstone was found several years ago in an old road bed; but if this is true, I don't know anyone who knows its location.)
