My Family History - Thomas Bryan. Traces the Bryan/Bryant paternal line back to a William Smith Bryan, b: 1590 in County Clare, Ireland, of English parents, who emigrated to Jamestown, Virginia, in about 1619, founding this family in colonial America. Thomas Bryan & his wife's birth years are wrong (should be born in 1659 for him and in 1663 for her) but the pedigree lineage seems correct.

I think Bryant-2856 and Bryan-13 are in fact duplicates. Look at the WILL which seems to be one of the only Primary Documents available. They should be an Unmerged Match until research can establish better birth and marriage information. I do NOT find any Native American connection for this man and think the PPP status for Bryant-2856 should NOT force us to merge into his profile. Please do NOT merge into Bryant-2856 without consultation. Thanks.
