(Q169)  22 Feb 1998 - Terry Lynn Bryant


I am researching my family and really need help as I am a novice at this.  George Washington FRY, b. Sep 7, 1869 in Wayne Co., IL, m. Martha Alice STACY, b. Sep 19, 1867 in Clay Co., IL.  I think George W. FRY's parents may have been William and Polly Ann FRY.  They are listed in the family bible, but I cannot tell excatly what their connection is.  My primary quest is to gain info. about Martha STACY FRY's mother who was a MITCHELL of Native American descent and m. James STACY, no dates are known.  The second part of my quest is for info. about Charles Patterson BRYANT, b. date? in Wayne Co., IL, d. Dec 12, 1896.  His parents were Lionza (sp?) BRYANT and Leatha MORRIS.  Charles BRYANT m. Rose Ellen BAYLES, b. 1867 in Wayne Co., IL, d. 1936.  I have lots of info. from this point forward and am happy to share with anyone that needs it.  Thank you for your time and for sharing.
