Looking for the origins of John Dryden b. 1788 KY, d. 27 Aug 1854 IN. Married Elizabeth Bowers, b. 1799 NC, on 2 Apr 1818 Washington Co. IN. Their children: Mary, Thomas, James, Robert A. (1830-1882), Frances Indiana, John Archibald, Nancy Jane, Emaline M., William B., and Betsey. A search on FamilySearch indicates that John was the son of Nathaniel (VA-TN-KY), who was the son of Thomas (VA), who was the son of David Dryden of Augusta Co. VA. I haven't found anything yet though to link John and Nathaniel. Any info on the families is appreciated.
