Notes

  • Some early lists of children of Daniel (Daniel John) and M (maybeMary) Green listed one son named William Bryant Green.  It seemsclear, now, with added information and more records now available andcompared, that this was a misunderstanding of Fannie Green's husband,William Bryant.  Fannie was a daughter of Daniel John and M (maybeMary) Green.  They had a son named William Bryant Green.

    An early genealogy reporting a list of the children stated that allthe children received $77 as settlement of estate of Daniel Greenaccording to Court records dated 8 Apr 1859, Hall County, Georgia.This statement was found in an old genealogy that had the children ofDaniel and Mary Green, with just this statement in the notes for mostof the children.

    This is probably the reason William Bryant was mistaken as the firsttwo names of a child of Daniel and Mary.  One of the children wasnamed as William Bryant Green.

    We known now that this William Bryant was not William Bryant Green,but the husband of Daniel's daughter Fannie, William Bryant.  This wasconfirmed for me when I received a message from a descendant of Fanniegiving some family details, including the identification of FannieGreen Bryant's son as Hardy Bryant.

    "License of William Bryant and Fanny Green returned solemnized 16thday of October 1832 - Joseph Dunagan, JJC"

    Other families reporting this family and the Bryant connection alsoreport that Fannie's husband was one William Bryant.  This issupported by the 1850 and 1860 censuses, on which family researchershave commented on Ancestry.com, further strengthening theidentification.  In the 1860 census, next door to William and Fanny isHardy Bryant and his wife Winney G.  This Hardy Brant is age 26,matching a son of William.  He also had a brother name William Brant.

    At this age Hardy would be the oldest child on this census.  Thismatches the 1850 census, which reported all the children only by theirinitial.  The oldest child then was H Bryant, age 16.  In 1860, theoldest child still in William and Fanny's household is 22-year-oldJohn.
