Ann - I too am interested in a William Bryant. The one i'm interested in may well be one of yours.
Mine is listed in the 1840 Chambers County Ala. census. I believe the Ala. William to be a relative (perhaps the father) of my Thomas Jefferson Bryant who was born in GA in about 1826-27 at unknown location.
I am dead ended on who My Thomas J's father or siblings were - maybe you have who I'm looking for.
Please contact me directly using Bryant in the title of your message.
