Friday's Photo: Terrell Little "Bunch" Bryan

Terrell Little "Bunch" Bryan 1861 - 1939


My father fondly remembered visiting Aunt Bunch and he remembered not liking her fried okra. Aunt Bunch was his father's older sister, Terrell Little Bryan Biggs. 

Terrell Little "Bunch" Bryan was named for her father, Terrell Bryan. She was born in Bienville Parish, Louisiana on July 13, 1861.  The war had begun earlier that year and her father enlisted in the Confederate Army just a few month's after her birth.


James D. Biggs
A Wedding Photo 1880
Terrell Little Bryan married James D. Biggs on May 16, 1880 in Erath County, Texas where they raised eight children. 

The tintype of Terrell Little Bryan (above) was found in my father's Bryan family bible and labeled "Aunt Bunch." 

The photograph of James D. Biggs and of the couple were said to have been taken on their wedding day. These photographs, also tintypes, were found in the collection of Marguerite Cook Clark of Bienville Parish. Marguerite was a descendant of Joseph B. Bryan, brother of Terrell Little Bryan's father. This is another example of the Texas Bryans keeping in touch with the Louisiana Bryans.
