I really have very little on the Brigance. But I will share what I obtained from my late mother-in-law, years ago.
I looked on an Oklahoma map and looked up Snyder, Ok.It is close to Greer County where Lillie's daughter, Biddie Bell Bryan, was born.Does this help?
Also, I have a little note next to Lillie Bell Brigance's entry which reads, "one brother, Uncle "T" Brigance". Perhaps this is William Thomas JR.
I also show that Lillie's husband, William Martin Bryan b.15 Jan 1870, Detroit, TX, was buried in the 5 mile cemetary.I have no idea what my m-i-law meant by this.I know that she was raised near Allen, Oklahoma which is close to Ada. I also show that William Martin Bryan had a brother, Henry.There parents were Josh L. Martin Bryan and Laura Virginia York.
I am confused by your reply. If William Thomas Brigance is the son of Joel Dyer, then why is his last name not Dyer? Am I reading it wrong?
I am trying to locate my mother-in-law's sister who is still living.Maybe she can shed more light.
I have so little to exchange for what you possibly may have. I will appreciate any info.Sincerely, Etta
