William published the first weekly newspaper in Bay City until 1864 when he enlishted in the 29th Mich. Infantry. He was discharged in Sept., 1865, and only a few months later died in Marine City, Mich. on Jan. 15, 1866.
He was married in 1854 at St. Clair, Mich. Wife list as Asabell Morse. After William's death, I have her married to Frank Erskine in 1869 at St. Clair, then in the 1880 census they living in St. Louis,MO., with Ida and Carrie, William's children.
I have one prospect for his parents found in the 1850 census in Milford, Oakland Co., Mich., while list an Alexander Bryce (physician), age 40, b. 1810 NY; Malinda, age 38, b. 1812 NY; and William, age 16, b. 1834 Canada West.
This same Alexander after William's death moved to Bay City with his son Charles O, a printer.
Looking to solidify his parents as there are there are other William Bryces in this age range living in Michigan.
