On March 8, 2014, Doug Warren changed [Bryant-957 | Abigail Bryant) to be wife of this Lieut. John Bryant, instead of John Bryant, Jr, as was previously entered on WikiTree. Also, changed her children so their father was also this Lieut. John Bryant of Plympton, rather than the other John Bryant, Jr.
As suggested by Linda Ellinger on April 29, 2014, Doug Warren approved the merge of John Bryant (Bryan-3532) into John Bryant (Bryant-2025). He also adopted the profile of Bryant-2025, which had previously been an orphan profile with no manager. Lieut. John Bryant is Doug's 7th great grandfather.
The Bryant-2025 profile was initially created by Wilfred Vasile on Jun 16, 2012 with no information except the names of John and Abigail Bryant. There was a question on the profile page that seemed to indicate this was intended to represent ancestors of a John Wesley Bryant and Abigail Elliott who apparently lived in the 1880's but there was no linkage provided. Therefore, this empty profile was essentially replaced with Bryant-3532 but it had to be merged into the lower-numbered profile per WikiTree merge rules.
