      ________________________________
      Dear David: My Bryant line is at <http://www.geocities.com/tpbryant9/Bryant.htm>. I do not have direct evidence of Hannah's birth (such as a birth certificate); I took her date of birth (March 17, 1879) from W.C. Johnson's genealogy. However, I do have a 1900 U.S. census image of the William Bryant household, and Hannah is listed as the oldest child, born in January 1879 (I just now noticed this.) If you'd like, I could send either the entire census page (287 kb) or two close-ups of the family (165 kb and 171 kb). One of the close-ups gives the number of years that Hannah had been in the U.S. (19) and also gives her occupation as photographer. However, it is more likely that she worked as a retoucher of photographs, as in the image I do attach here of the article that appeared in the Streator Monitor. (At that time, 1901, it was unusual for the newspapers to have such articles. Streator had two newspapers at the time, and it was only by sheer luck that I found the article on microfilm.) I find it interesting to note that W.C. Johnson's parents both died in Streator. I wonder what brought them to Streator from Kansas. If you have any other interest in the Bryant family, I will be examining the LDS microfilm for the parish in which many of the Bryants and Mosses were born in Bristol. Very best regards, Tim Bryant (tpbryant9@yahoo.com )


      An image of Hannah Bryantâ??s newspaper wedding article was attached to the email above. It is in the unnumbered documents scanned images folder. The document name is: Bryant, Hannah - Wedding article. Tim also sent me an image of the census record of Hannahâ??s family. It is in the same folder and is named: Bryant, Hannah - 1900 Census. The information below came from Timâ??s web site.
