Friday's Photo - Three Civil War Soldiers

Isn't this a fabulous picture! It's not mine, but from the collection of Marguerite Cook Clark. She was the great-granddaughter of Joseph B. Bryan. It's not marked, but I can am going to assume that these men are from or at least lived near Bienville Parish, Louisiana. 

This could be three of the Bryan brothers. Tilman, Joseph, and Terrell Bryan fought in different units. James was in the home guard. Or, maybe some of the Regan brothers - the three oldest died in the war. Catharine Amanda Bryan's husband, James C. Watts fought for a year. James Pittman, husband of Georgia Ann Frances Bryan, died on the battlefield. Thomas Jefferson Martin, future son-in-law of Joseph Bryan, also served. Then you have Hammetts, Wimberly's, Albrittons, and many other in-laws and friends. So many possibilities!!

Are there any other Bryan descendants with photos from the Civil War? If so, let's share and compare.

    1. Hi Jeanne,
      I know that my great-great-grandfather was in Martin County, NC - moved to Houston/Twiggs Counties in GA and by 1839 was in Bienville Parish, LA. Where in GA were your Bryans?
