*More On Calvin & Richard BRYANT sons of John H. & Elizabeth
I have a little on Richard D. Bryant. He was married to Emaline Garner a sister of Winny Garner's. Emaline died about 1872 in what is now Logan County, AR. Richard died about 1879 in Logan County. Their only known children were:
James H. Bryant born about 1865. Died after 9 April 1894. He sold land then.
Hannah Bryant born about September 1869. Died about 1879
John M. Bryant born about 1871. Died after 29 October 1888. He sold land then.
I Richard remarried after the death of Emaline, but I don't know her name. Most of this information is taken from an affidavit given by Samuel Garner, a bother of Winny and Emaline.
