Note*2001  The following note is from Cara Murray who has done significant research on the Bryant family: Charity isn't a natural child of Jesse and Margaret. She was adopted; her mother is Sarah Miller but I don't know who her father is. Sarah had Charity out of wedlock at the age of 17. After Sarah's parents died, Jesse was named guardian of Sarah and her baby, Charity. Sarah's parents were William Miller and Nancy Bryant; Nancy I suspect is Jesse's sister.4

 He was the son of Joel B Bryant and Amanda Allen
Death*29 December 1878 He died on 29 December 1878 at GA. 
Note* He It is interesting that a cemetery record (name unknown) gives the following conflicting information: Charley Bryant born 11-7-1878 died 12-29-1878 "Son of Joel and Mrs. Amanda Bryant" Then later the same record records Jerdin Turner born 10-1-1864 died 11-1-1866 " Son of Joel Turner and Mrs. Amanda Bryant". This would work if dates were reversed, but as they stand it does not make sense. Possibly a check of the census records would shed light.
July 2002 - received the Bleckley county Cemetery survey. Above is correct. I cannot determine what this means. How can she be widow Bryant married to Joel Turner. I suspect Joel's middle name was Turner i.e. Joel Turner Bryant. 2006.

Cousin Jim had a disease of his eyelids that caused them to be red and raw looking inside and Mama said he had granulated lids. I can't for the life of me remember his wife's name but he had a brother and sister-in-law Cousin Jesse and his wife Cousin Udell, parents of Rubye and Ruben Bryant. Cousin Jesse and Cousin Udell were in the nursing home in Cochran at about the same time Mama was. I visited them there. Shug would know them well. I remember going some place "up on the river" I believe to visit them when I was little. They both were sons of one of Grannys brothers.

The following is taken from Cara Murray's web page:

James Burrell Bryant was born 22 November 1840 in Pulaski County Georgia. He is the son of Thomas and Margaret Bryant. James married Winnifred Anderson, daughter of Joseph Anderson and Mary Tyson, about 1865 in Pulaski County after he returned from the war. James enlisted in Co. B, 14th Battalion, GA Light Artillery "Anderson's Battery" on 01 May 1861 at Camp Golgatha, Hawkinsville, Pulaski County Georgia, serving under Captain Ruel Anderson. His job was to drive a team of horses that pulled a battle cannon. He fought in Tennessee at the battles of Mufreesboro and Chattanooga; he fought in Georgia at Chickamauga, at Griswoldville and at the siege of Atlanta. He also fought in battles in the Carolinas. He was discharged 10 April 1865 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Jan/Feb 1863:
March/April 1863: Fairfield, Tennessee. "Moved since last muster from Tullahoma Tenn to Manchester, Tenn April 22, 1863 thence to Fairfield Tenn April 23, 1863."
July/August 1863: Chattanooga, Tennessee. "Moved from Tenn Station to camp near [...]. Remained there until the 27 Aug 1863 then moved to [...] ford on Tenn River then remained guarding the ford until the 6th Sep & then march three days and arrived at McClambers cover where the enemy was driven back one [...] engaged no loss sustained then marched to La Fayatee one action coming up in the rear with rear Guard."
Sept/Oct 1863: Chattanooga, Tennessee. "Moved from La Fayette on the 16 Sept to Battle Ground near Chickamauga River on the 19th the Battery moving with the Brigade but not itself engaged. Had one man mortally wounded since died. 3 horses killed on the 20 Sept Battery still moving with Brig. One Lieut killed 11 Sgts [...] & 5 privates slightly wounded -- 13 horses killed."
Nov/Dec 1863: Dalton, Georgia
Jan/Feb 1864: Dalton, Georgia.
March/Apr. 1864: Dalton, Georgia.
Nov/Dec 1864: Coosawhatchie, South Carolina. "The Battery left Lovejoy Station on 15 Nov 1864 enroute to Macon, GA where it carried on the 18th went to Groswoldville on 22 Nov with [...] by Smiths Command where engaged the enemy four hours had one man killed one mortally and two severly wounded. Returned to Macon night of 22nd, left Macon 24 Nov and marched by land to Hawkinsville GA from thence came by steamboat [...] on the Altamaha thence to Savannah by railway on 5 Dec then remained on line of battle engaged in [...] with the enemy until night of 20 Dec. Had one [...] dismounted and several men slightly wounded in [...] at Savh. From Savh marched to Hardenville on night of 30 Dec and from thence to [...] in SC on 23 Dec 1864."
(Confederate Army, Co. B, 14th Battn, GA Light Artillery, "Anderson's Battery").
According to James Burrell on his pension application, he was not with his unit when they surrendered at Greensboro, NC. He was "on furlow to see my people by permission from my Captain -- Anderson."

CENSUS1870*1870 He appeared on the census in 1870 at Pulaski County, GA..5 
CENSUS1880*1880 He appeared on the Census in 1880 at Tattnall, GA; Apparently the whole family moved to Tatttnall County. I have no idea why. Tattnall is almost to Statesboro. However, a search of Tattnall found this deed between Jonathan Anderson. Given wife's maiden name of Anderson and the fact they named a child Johnathan make it circumstantial that they went because she wanted to be close to home or perhaps inheirited land there.

J. A. Standfield, J.P. Zach Hall.

Recorded November 7th, 1911.

H. J. Brewton, Clerk.

RHB,



NOTE:

There is no record of Jonathan's death, however, a
document dated April 23, 1850 and filed with the clerk's
office of Superior court in Tattnall Co., Reidsville, GA
does provide for his wife Rebecca (and therefore we
assume a valid marriage).

FACTS FOR REBECCA & JONATHAN ANDERSON:

Fact 1: In 1850 census of Liberty Co., GA, there is a
Wiley W. Standley, 30 years, born GA...wife Lamendin, 30
yrs., children: Allist T., blind; Raiford, 3; Mary, 8;
Shadrak, 6. Also living in the home was Mrs. Anderson, 53
yrs., b. SC and James Moody, Jr., 20, laborer. Family
#51.



Fact 2: In 1845, May 5th, Jonathan Anderson was the
administrator of the estate of Mrs. Elizabeth Grubbs, who
he had taken care of for 5 years. (This was Rebecca
Grubbs' mother.)6
 
CENSUS1900*1900 He appeared on the census in 1900 at Coffee, GA.7
Here is the family of Burwell living in Coffee County from which he filed for his military pension that required his sister, Liffie's affadavit.
CENSUS1910*1910 He appeared on the census in 1910 at Ben Hill County, GA.
This family moved a lot. Left Pulaski and went to Tattnall in 1880 then to Coffee county in 1900 where he filed an indigent pension request in 1909. Finally ended up here.
Anecdote*2000  In 2000 Annette Kaplan stated that she had heard stories about how he helped with the family. Again in 2004 she stated that Uncle Burrel helped raise Annie and Aunt Juliette. However, I suspect it was his son James Burrell, Jr. as James Sr. moved the entire family to Tattnall County in 1880 which is four years before Annie was born.

Birth*1868 James Burwell Bryant Jr. was born in 1868.1

MARRIAGE*19 September 1895 He married Nancy Mullis on 19 September 1895.2 
Divorce*before 1910 He and an unknown person were divorced before 1910 at Ben Hill County, GA; He was probably divorced by Nancy.)3
CENSUS1910*1910 He appeared on the census in 1910 at Ben Hill County; Shown as age 40 and divorced living with he parents in Ben Hill county. 
Note*2005  In 2005 Annette Kaplan says she remembers her mother, Annie, saying how much "Uncle Burell" helped when Orliffy was abandoned by her husband Jesse Jasper Holland leaving her with two young children. I cannot prove this and suspect that it was not "Uncle Burrell" (James Burrell, Sr.) as he was gone from Pulaski county by 1878 and living miles away. However, it could easily have been James Burrell, Jr. James did not marry until 1895 so he would have been free to help during the period of about 1888 to 1897 when Orliffy and Jane were alone raising the young girls. I have not been able to find Jane E on the 1910 census (have checked it completely and from every angle I can imagine) she is not living with any of the family and her sister Orliffy has remarried and is living with her new husband. We know that Jane lived to about 1925 as Annette Kaplan remembers her. What a mystery.

F, #1715, b. October 1840, d. after 1925
Father*Thomas Bryant b. 1819, d. b 1870
Mother*Margarette Mullis b. 1823; I am positive Margaret is the mother of Jane E. as they are on the 1850 census.1
Birth*October 1840 Jane E. Bryant was born in October 1840 at GA.2,3,4 
 She was the daughter of Thomas Bryant and Margarette Mullis.1 
Death*after 1925 She died after 1925 at Pulaski County, GA, Apparently she died after 1925 as Annette Kaplan stated in 2004 that she knew Aunt Jane Bryant when she (Annette) was a child of 7 years old. Annette told the story of having an ear ache and Aunt Jane would put a hickory stick in the fire to make the sap run and would drip the sap in her ear. Also, Annette said that Aunt Jane smoked a little corn cob pipe and would blow smoke in her ear for pain relief.

Here is Orliffy (Artipy) living with her mother and older sister.
CENSUS1900*1900 She appeared on the census in 1900 at GA; Living at house # 173 p. 9.8 
Note*8 September 1908  On 8 September 1908 She signed an affidavit: 08 September 1908, Coffee County Georgia stating that James was home on leave when the war ended.4 
COURT*8 September 1908  On 8 September 1908 at Coffee, GA, Jane signed an affidavit stating that James Burrell was at home on furlough at the end of the war.4 
CENSUS1910*1910 She cannot be found on the census in 1910 at GA; I have searched every which way, but cannot find her in the 1910 census. I am sure she was alive as Annette remembers seeing her when she was about seven years old (1925). I would have thought that she would continue to live with her sister Orliffy who married Charles Love Herndon in about 1901, but a search of the census finds Love and Liffie living in the small town of Frazier, but no trace of Jane.
No sign of Jane on this page or anywhere in the community.
Biography*1999  Jane E. Bryant never married. According to Annette Floyd Vollmer (1977) she remained unmarried in order to help her mother care for all the children. Margaret Bryant, her mother was a widow before 1870 and with her own children plus what appears to be two adoptees(need to check this fact -mvw 09-01), Jesse and Joel, would have certainly have needed help. Annette Vollmer also remembers her mother, Annie J. Holland talking about "Aunt Jane" who would of course be Jane E. Bryant. The 1900 Pulaski County Census shows Jane E. Bryant who never married, living with her sister Arliffy. Arliffy is listed on the census as being divorced. Both from remembrances and the records it seems that Jane Bryant first helped her own mother raise a large family and then proceeded to help her younger sister, Orliffy Bryant Holland raise two children, Annie Jane and Juilliet Holland.

Orliffie was left alone with the two children when her husband, Jesse Holland deserted her. Annette Floyd remembers her mother, Annie Jane saying, "Aunt Jane" and that she was considered the mainstay of the family. A letter from Tina Floyd Rosenberger dated August 15, 1978 states the following, "Of Course the name Jane E. Bryant means something to me. She lived just down the road (in the old house that is now Betty's house - the colored lady) from mamma. I remember her as being a gentle old person, But, of course, to a child anyone over 25 is old! She was heavy set with blue eyes and had curly hair mostly white, but what color she had left was auburn. As a matter of fact, mamma was named Annie Jane after Aunt Jane and I believe Granny (Orliffie) had a sister named Annie. Anyway, your (Elizabeth Jane Vollmer) own sister Betsy was named indirectly for her, as Betsy Jane came from mamma, whose name came from Aunt Jane. Aunt Jane moved to Ocilla and died there. At the time of her death she lived with her brother Tom. Aunt Jane was a spinster and from things I heard about her in younger days she practically kept body and soul together for Granny and the others when the War Between the States was being fought. Her brothers (Uncle Tom, Uncle Joe, Uncle Burrell and her father all fought in the war and believe me from what I have been told there (sic) were tough times. I remember hearing Granny say they dug up the earth in the smokehouses and boiled it to extract salt as there was no salt. And we thought World War II with its sugar ration and meat ration was hard!" It would appear that if the scanty facts and the family stories are correct, Jane E. Bryant was a "Scarlett O'Hara" type of survivor.
