|Richard Bryant and Keziah Arroyah had issue:
Br10-1 Richard Bryan m. Beth
(Br10-5) Martha Bryant (about
1650 - after 1690) married Thomas Foley andhad 5 children, 2nd William
Br10-2-1 Ann Bryant m William RedmanA marriage is registered on April 1, 1775, for Benjamin Berryman and Anna Bryant in Fauquire Co. Va., but this Anna would have to have been born about 1750, while the former would have been born about 1700, so she is likely to have been a daughter or Granddaughter of Br9-4, not Br9-2-1, unless both Br10 and Br 9-2 both had their children rather late in life. The difference between Berryman and Redman means little unless we know for certain that he was Caucasian and not Native American.
A marriage is registered on November 26, 1772, for John Baxter and Amelia Briant also seems to be a later generation.
A marriage is registered on May 20, 1777, Battaley Bryan
and Elizabeth Berryman
