Re: Looking for information on Thomas Bryan
I checked out the census records you refered to. I read R.S.Bryan's wife as Pheraby, most likely Pheraba or some such spelling, I have seen a lot of ladies with that name from North Carolina, especially among the Quakers there. And I might have some new data for you.
