Friday's Photos: Elizabeth Span Regan Bryan



My great-great-grandmother was Elizabeth Span Regan, daughter of Joseph and Dorothea Regan. She was born October 20, 1798 in Robeson County, North Carolina. Elizabeth married her cousin Joseph Regan, moved to Georgia, and after his death in 1820, married Reddick Bryan in Pulaski County, Georgia. She spent almost 20 years in living with her family in Georgia (primarily Houston County) before moving to Northwest Louisiana with her family in 1838. Elizabeth remained in Louisiana until her death in 1877. She is buried in the Bryan Cemetery in Bienville Parish. 

This weekend, I will be attending the 21st Regan Family Reunion at the Regan United Methodist Church in Lumberton, Robeson County, North Carolina. This will be my first time in attendance and I know that I will learn a little more about my great-great-grandmother's family.

  1. Diana,
    Love the photograph. How wonderful that you have had family reunions. We haven't had anything large, but one time I gathered a bunch of cousins together whom had never met. That has carried over to friendships and they now see one another frequently.
    Looking forward to reading other posts.

  2. Thank you! That wonderful photo was taken before the Civil War and found labeled in my grandfather's Bible. Reunions, both big and small, make me feel so much more connected to family. At this reunion, I met very distant cousins that had only corresponded with and one distant cousin who had sold me a house in 1983 (we no known connection at that time).
