Nat, This is where the confusion starts.Did John Bryan who married Jane Harrison die in 1779-80 at Bryan's Station, KY.If so, then an Ezekial (b. 1799) could not be his son. Your Ezekial would fit better into the Cornelius Bryan line since some were still around the Rockingham Area in 1799.However, Peter Bryan who married Betty Hubbard left for Sevier Co, TN in the late 1780s supposedly.I would think it possible that Ezekial might be a son Peter's brother William that was still in RCV at that time.However, I haven't seen anything stating that.You may want to take a trip to Edom or get in contact with someone there, especially Miss Grace Showalter if she is still around.
