From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark: A Bryan Family Photo

I almost didn't copy this photo when perusing Marguerite Cook Clark's files. The picture wasn't labeled, but photo looked familiar. Almost two years to the date that I scanned it, I found the family in my Bryan files - a Xerox copy of the photo from cousin Julia and labeled with names! 

According to Julia, the photo dates at about 1903 to 1904. This is the family of Tilman Capers Bryan II and Mary Elizabeth McDowell Bryan of Bienville Parish, Louisiana. 

Back Row - Willie Marie Bryan, John C. Bryan, Della Bryan, Lois Bryan
Front Row - Eunice Bryan, Tilman Capers Bryan II, Mary Elizabeth McDowell Bryan, Eddy Bryan

Tilman is the son of Tilman Capers Bryan and his wife, Mildred Manning.  He is the grandson of my ancestors, Reddick and Elizabeth Regan Bryan.
