Looking for Great-Grandmother - whose name, was Laura (Jones) Bryant (b. abt 1870-72), My Grandmother used to call her Annie Laurie. She was daughter of Fannie (Findley) Jones and Moody Jones - a circuit riding preacher. Laura married Willliam Bryant.

Laura (Jones) Bryant died in early 1892 - leaving an infant girl, Mary Lee Bryant. Laura died of pneumonia and is supposedly buried in or near Rising Star. They had a son Charles Leonard (b. 1890) who moved to Georgia with his father after his mother passed on. Mary Lee, the infant remained with her grandparents - to be raised by them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - I keep getting dead-ends! I would pay for lookup services.
