It would be remiss of me not to thank my husband’s great uncle, WalterSpeight BRYAN, b 17 Dec 1887 Ft Gaines, GA, and d 11-1979 Americus GA, (sonof The Rev. Robert Burns BRYAN and Rebecca Anna EASTERLING of Screven Co,GA) for the work that he did during his lifetime. It was Uncle Walter whofirst sparked my interest in my husband’s family history. Walter S.Bryan was a graduate of Emory University, Atlanta, GA, Rhodes Scholar atOxford, US Army Veteran of WWI, historian, Professor of German at OverlandCollege in New England. He kept copious notes on family history, which Ihave been privileged to copy. He traveled extensively, looking for familyrecords and recording it all for his family. Walter S Bryan never marriedand had no offspring of his own, but he maintained contact with all of hisnieces and nephews for his lifetime
