William Lafayette Bryant
Hi Rick - WL is a maternal great grand uncle. You posted a photo on his memorial which I would presume to be him and his family. Do you have a legend for this photo?

Thank you for any assistance - Gai

William M. Phillips
Hello Rick, do you have a date of death on the William M. Phillips death certificate? And/or location? I would like to find out where he is buried. ( As you mentioned, birth date corresponds to William L. Phillips. Could be the same person.)
Thanks. I am back in Texas. Hope you have a great New Year.

William L. Phillips
William L. Phillips was born in 1860 in Calhoun County, Alabama, to john Abner Phillips and Polly (Pettit) Phillips. John Abner Phillips died of Typhoid Fever in the Civil war. Polly and William moved to Texas, around Comanche County, where her brother, John Pettit lived. I have two letters from William Phillips to my Great-grandfather James Wesley Phillips, back in Calhoun County, Alabama. William Phillips wound up having a big family, and I have found him several times in various census records in Texas. You are right. The last census record shows him in Coleman County, Texas. I have been to Polly's grave in Texas, but have been unable to locate any of William's descendants in Texas. Polly is buried near Pettit, Texas. The pettits, who lived in Calhoun County, Alabama, moved to Texas and became fairly well off. I am currently visiting in Alabama, and all my genealogy records are back in Texas, so am working from memory. Would love to find some of "Will's" descendants around Coleman or in Comanche County.

Thanks Rick. I am still searching for Houston Alferd (or Alford) Bryant. He was in TN and left going to Texas according to family stories. I'll look through your Bryants and see if anything rings a bell.
Thanks again

Looking for Houston Alferd (or Alford Houston) Bryant, married Mary Blanton, lived in Mississippi and Henderson or Carroll Counties in Tennessee. I think your Bryant family may be connected to mine.
Thank you,
Cynthia Gilliam
