Signers of inventory were Henry Colding and James Overstreet.).

Notes for RACHEL COLDING:

Jerry Scott says that she was in the Orangeburgh Census S part with children but no husband in 1790, so she does not know how John could have died 1801.

Notes for JOHN CONE, SR:

if one goes to Scotland and goes to one of the places where they sell tartans and asks for the Clan Cone plaid, they'll look it up on the computer. Result? There isn't one, but they will tell you that Cone is a seip (Sept?) of Clan Donald and is, therefore, entitled to wear the McDonald tartan.

Hello All! This is mainly in answer to Judy Canant's letter, asking for help with "our Sarah CONE". When John CONE died intestate in Barnwell County SC in 1801, letters of Administration were granted to John Conyers Humphreys. (Others named in the estate papers were Jacob Kettles and Henry Colding.) When Mrs. John Conyers Humphreys died in 1857, her name is given in the will as Sarah CONE Humphreys. While all this certainly does not prove that Sarah was the daughter of John CONE,

evidence points in this direction.

Earlier, in 1787, when an Indenture was made between Peter Banner and John CONE both of Orangeburg District (this was before Barnwell was formed), one of the witnesses was Blanched (Blanchard) Colding. Another was Matthew CONE. This puts the three families (CONE, Colding and later

Humphreys) together over an extended period of time. Before getting information from Judy, I did not know that John CONE's wife's name was Rachel Colding. According to Judy's letter, Rachel's

father was Blanchard Colding. It all seems to fit in together! Sure would like to find out where John CONE came from, before showing up in Orangeburg district in 1787!

This tells me that the John Marcellus that we have here may be a different John. We DO know that Paul H ALLEN is definitely a son of Ann Dewees Allen.

Eunice Keel, in letter to Walter S Bryan, states that neither she nor her mother knew of a relationship between CH Colding and Henry Colding. "A Mrs John Faust, who is one of his direct descendants, says she thinks it was all in the Colding Bible, but that years ago it was lent to one of the Coldings in Ga and was burned up in their house. The only additional information I know is that he was clerk of Smyrna in 1840 and gave a letter of transfer to William and Jane Phillips Bryan on July 20. Mrs Edenfield has the latter and I read it the other day. According to the adm. papers of the estate of Blanchard Colding (Henry's father) he didn't belong in that family, neither was his name among those in the adm papers of Henry's estate. It is probable that he was the grandson of Michael Colding, whom I surmised, was the bro of Blanchard. should I run across anything more about him I'll copy and send."

Notes for SARAH ASENATH HUMPHREYS:

There is a record of the death of Balone Durant Bryan who d 12-18-1856, at age 1 mo, Screven Co, Ga, and it is in the midst of the death records of children of LML Bryan and Sarah A Bryan. I have not ever seen this child listed as their child. He is buried with the HUMPHREYS family, on one side, Bryan Family Cemetery, Screven Co, GA.

Milbury lantation is in a little area down a road on the s side of Hwy 3 and just about 2 miles s of Hwy 301 and a little bit south of the intersection with Co Rd 107. It shows on the county map which Kathy Brabham gave us of Allendale Co. We thought that Milbury Grove was more than the plantation name, but Joe Bryan says it is in a different location. Milbury Plantation is at the lower boundary of Mock Orange plantation land near the Savannah River.

Sarah is said to have told her grandchildren that this branch of the Bryans is descended from a man named "Need-ham" who was of royal blood. (I was told this 11-1996 by a cousin to whom the story was told by his grandmother who was one of those children. -JPC.) As far as our BRYAN research team has been able to notate, this line was no close kin to the Needham Bryan who was son of the William Bryan who was said to have married Alice Needham (who did not exist - That is now proven.), but DID marry Alice MACLAND, daughter of John MACLAND, and she and her children are proven by name by the will of John Maclan.-JPC

Sarah, on the 1850 census said she was b in GA. don't see how she could have been b there. Parents b, m and d in Barnwell Dist, SC

"Are you familiar with the Humphrey's family grave yard which is located in Sylvania, GA? It is abandoned in the woods. I visited this grave yard recently with the help of my father. he knew where the grave yard was and led me to it. There are graves with trees growing up inside them. Abandoned for years, however the stones are in pretty good shape. There is a rusty grave yard fence around the graves."

Written by Walter Speight Bryan 1941:

Wednesday afternoon was exceedingly hot. Consequently it was nearly 6:00 o'clock before Cousin Maggie, Cousin Etta, Paul (his brother, Paul E BRYAN) and I started out to visit the Pfeiffer Place, where Grandpa James E Easterling lived when he first came to Screven County to manage extensive farming interests for Mr Gibbons of Savannah, east (slightly south) of Sylvania, some ten miles, thence south to Buck Creek Church (Meth) where Papa (The Rev. Robert Burns BRYAN) met Mama (Rebecca Anna EASTERLING) for the first time. This is a nice looking, freshly painted church frame building, with Sunday School annex across the back, well kept inside with nice pews, altar, stoves etc. The church yard and cemetery are also clean and attractive. A very threatening cloud had come up, so we tarried here only a very few minutes, then hurried on some 4 or 5 miles SW to Grandpa (Lewis) M(artin) L(ewis) Bryan's old home place on the Savannah- Augusta Road, a few hundred yards below the junction of Poor Robin Road with the S - A Road. The southwestern corner of this junction is the site of the Bryan grave yard, where Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle Joe and many others are buried. We could not stop here. At Grandpa's old home we were detained about 30 minutes by a real heavy rain. Cousin Beth (Mrs. Thomas DeWeese Jarrell) and her son, Marvin Jarrell, are now living on the old place. According to authoritative accounts, Grandpa had a nice big, two-story home here until Mr. Sherman came along and turned it into a big bonfire. After the Civil War Grandpa was never able to rebuild more than a small house (4 or 5 rooms) with separate kitchen, where he continued to live until his death in 1892. After Grandma's death, about 1870, his grandson, Alfred Franklin B. lived with him for a long time. Alf was Uncle Joe's oldest boy. His wife, Laura, was Uncle Bill's second child. When the rain slacked down a bit, we rode on past Percy McCall Bryan's home, the old Henry Boykin place, arranged for Jim to come in next morning, then back to Sylvania at good dark.

Following Copyrighted June 1996:

A note by LMLB, Black Creek, Screven County, GA, just before, or as, he joined the Confederate Army for the Civil War; addressed to:

1. Asenath, his wife (1814-1870)

2. Becky, his daughter, Rebecca Deweese Bryan (1847-1916)

3. Paul, his son, Paul Allen Bryan (1850-?)

Asenath

Nearly 24 years have passed since we were united in marriage - Time has passed swiftly away, some in joy, some in sorrow. We have been made to lament the loss of our children by death. It has been grief to us, it is joy and happiness to them in a better world. You are now to part with me and three of your boys, perhaps never to meet in this world again. Let it not grieve your heart, when you think that we are only obeying the call of our country, and could not act otherwise. Bear up under this parting for the sake of your two little ones left with you. They will need all of your care and counsel for years yet. Forgive me all the injustice I have done you - if you have done me any I freely forgive all -

Becky,

My only living daughter and darling of my heart. It stirs up the deep emotion of my heart to part with you. But I leave you with a virtuous, kind and affectionate mother who can lead you in the paths of virtue and rectitude. Listen to her counsel. Let it sink deep into your heart never to be forgotten. Attend to all her wants in her affliction - lighten her home duties as much as you can. Be kind, be obedient, be loving to your mother. She is your best - your surest counsellor and advisor in this world. May she long be spared to guide your young and wandering heart. Remember your Father and brothers who have gone to the war. Remember the soldiers - do all you can for their comfort.

Paul -

What can I say to my little soldier Boy, whose soul is filled with love for his country. And whose heart beats high to avenge his country's wrongs. Gladly would I take you, my Boy, to the battlefields - but you must leave this work to older heads and stronger arms - but not to more willing hands or braver heart. You must stay at home to protect a mother and sister. Stay at home - only go when your mother tells you to go and come when she tells you to come. Do not keep bad company. Do not stay with boys who curse and fight - or who would lead you into vice. Trouble nothing that belongs to anybody without asking. Love your mother, your sister, your brother, your kin, everybody worthy of love. Obey your mother and all such as she tells you to obey. Love your country. Fight for it. Defend it against all its enemies at any time and at all times. I am interrupted and must stop.

(the original letter was in the custody of Mrs Maggie Overstreet Howard of Sylvania, Ga in about 1939, and she gave it to WSB to copy.)

Georgia soldier roster, Civil War records: "Bryan, Martin L Screven County. 25th Regiment Ga.Vol. Infantry, Co.B. Captain, Aug.10,1861. Retired at re-organization May 5, 1862

Same: Bryan, Robert Burns. Screven County 25th Regt. Ga.Vol. Infantry, Co.B. 1st Sergeant, Aug.10,1861. Captured, Warren County (or Clinton County), Mississippi, July 9, 1863. Received Ft. Delaware, Del., prison Mar 22, 1864, and released therefrom 1865. (note;JPC-He escaped from Ft Delaware and we have a copied portion of his journal about this escape)

Notes of Walter S. Bryan: "It is known that Sherman's army burned his (L.Martin L. Bryan)home, stole his cattle & hogs & drove off his mules and horses. After Civil War he was impoverished economically."

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I was told by Joseph Furman Bryan, cousin through William Dewees Bryan descent, that his grandfather had told him about Lewis ML Bryan. " He came home just as Sherman's army was coming into the area. As he rode up in the yard of the house, a yankee soldier came up and demanded his horse. He told the man that he couldn't have his horse. The yankee grabbed the horse's reins and Lewis pulled his side pistol and shot the yankee dead. He hid his family away (with some other family, I suppose) and he hid out in the woods - with his horse - until Sherman's army had finished their filthy work. In retaliation for the dead yankee, Sherman's army burned Lewis' home and out-buildings, ran off or killed all of his livestock and poultry, and plowed up his fields. He was left with nothing but his life and the lives of his family."

Judith P Canant

In Screven Co History by Dixon Hollingsworth, it is written: Writing a few weeks after the event (Sherman's passing through), Col George R Black, of the Confederate Army, who was home on leave, said, "It was at first reported that they had destroyed everything in their line of march..."......Col Black also provides specific information about the burning of houses in Screven Co. "Four or five residences in this County were burned. Archie Stubbs was burned out because with his negro dogs (bloodhounds to chase runaway slaves) he had apprehended numerous escaped Yankee prisoners. Captain Martin Bryan's house was burned because he shot a Yankee, the first one who approached the house. Emmet Williamson's was burned because the Yankees said that he had assisted in blockading the roads against their advance. Gin houses were always burned and hound dogs were always shot."

Screven Co History also conveys this story, in the account of the Bryan family: "A family story goes as follows: When Gen Sherman's men passed through Screven Co on their way to the sea, one of his soldiers demanded a horse from L M L Bryan and was immediately shot by LML Bryan. The union soldier made his way back to his command and later died. Sherman's men returned to LML Bryan's Plantation. they could not find him, but they burned everything he owned. LML Bryan had the sad distinction of owning one of the places completely destroyed by Sherman on his way to the sea."

Note of Judith Presnell Canant: "We spent Sat. through Mon. in Sylvania at a new Day's Inn Motel and, with maps from Cousin Joe, we found the Bryan Family Cemetery and the Black Creek Methodist Church and cemetery. We took photographs of all Bryan gravestones. It was a very nostalgic journey, and we thought of Uncle Walter almost constantly - indeed, we met cousins who remembered his visits in 1940 and 1941. The Bryan Family Cemetery is well kept, although the iron fence which surrounded the Bryan Family graves is now totally gone. We suspect it has been destroyed or stolen over the years. The stones themselves are in good condition, and there were American flags at the plot of each veteran. Black Creek Methodist Church is neatly kept and the cemetery adjoins the church so that it is fairly well kept. Several Bryan descendants are there. The plantation of Lewis Martin Luther Bryan, which was around the site of the Bryan Family Cemetery was totally destroyed by Sherman's Army. We found out that it had been one of the largest plantations in the area. LMLB (who was known as Martin) was retiring from the Confederate Army after one year's service (he was older then and had adult sons serving) and he came home to find 2 Yankee soldiers in his yard. The soldiers demanded LMLB's horse and he said "no". The 1st Yankee grabbed the reins and LMLB took his side pistol and shot the Yankee, dead. The second soldier tried to attack LMLB and he was also shot, but got way. LMLB went into hiding with his family. The Yankee who got away went back to his company. They returned to LMLB's plantation, and burned all of the buildings, plowed up (and probably salted) the fields, ran off, killed or stole all animals. (AE said that LMLB's one mistake was in not finishing off the 2nd Yankee).

William Bryan signed papers for Jeanette, who referred to Byans as "my kinsmen"). He married JENNETT BRYAN Abt. 1790 in SC near Savannah River, daughter of *WILLIAM BRYAN and ELIZABETH MOORE. She was born April 08, 1772 in SC - In Methodist Rcds name is Jennette (Source: Multiple sources for this family., SCreven Co History, Dixon Hollingsworth, Editor, Article on Bryan family written by Donald L Mallard, pgs 128-129; Family Bible of Best Family.), and died September 02, 1851 in Barnwell Dist, SC (Source: DAR Papers of Anna Mason Smith, Her estate was administered by grandson John Austin Best, witnessed by James T Aldrich, lawyer..).

Notes for HENRY COLDING, HUSB OF JENNETT:

Eunice Keel, in letter to Walter S Bryan, states that neither she nor her mother knew of a relationship between CH Colding and Henry Colding. "A Mrs John Faust, who is one of his direct descendants, says she thinks it was all in the Colding Bible, but that years ago it was lent to one of the Coldings in Ga and was burned up in their house. The only additional information I know is that he was clerk of Smyrna in 1840 and gave a letter of transfer to William and Jane Phillips Bryan on July 20. Mrs Edenfield has the latter and I read it the other day. According to the adm. papers of the estate of Blanchard Colding (Henry's father) he didn't belong in that family, neither was his name among those in the adm papers of Henry's estate. It is probable that he was the grandson of Michael Colding, whom I surmised, was the bro of Blanchard. should I run across anything more about him I'll copy and send."
