Notes of Interest

A missing Bryant's last known residence was Pittsburgh, PA.  This was approximately during the 1930's.
(This could of been James Bryant* who left and went to Arkansas.  He never returned to Tuskegee)

Charity Bryant was accidentally killed when her extraordinary long hair caught on fire while cooking and her entire living quarters was burned to the ground.  Date is unknown

The Bryant's operated a store, school, and 3 cemeteries in Tuskegee, AL.  My father, Jim Harris and his first cousin, Daisy Streeter-Brown, attended the school during the late 1920's or early 1930's.  It was located inside the Shady Grove Baptist Church (The Bryant School) with a connecting cemetery that was locally known as one of the Bryant's Cemeteries.

Some of the Bryants are now residing in White Plains, NY.
