From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark: Albert Brown Bryan - Son of James Anderson Bryan and Sarah Frances Nix

Albert Brown Bryan was the son of James Anderson Bryan and Sarah Frances Nix. He was born on April 8, 1883 in Bienville Parish, Louisiana. Less than two years after his birth, both of his parents died of influenza. Augustus Reddick Bryan (brother to James Anderson Bryan) and his wife Erie Ontario Nix (aunt to Sarah Frances Nix) raised Albert, along with their three daughters, in a log home about four miles south of Ringgold in Bienville Parish.

Albert's parents left him land and personal items. As an adult that land, personal items, and accumulated income from the land were transferred to him by his uncle, Augustus Reddick Bryan.

Albert married Ina Mae Cook, daughter of Napoleon Bonaparte Cook and Sophronia Pauline Porter, April 12, 1914. They had three sons - James Rupert Bryan, Francis Gilbert Bryan, and Albert Cook Bryan.
