*John Terrell Bryan and his sister, Josie, were adopted by James Bryan (Joseph's brother) and Alice Wimberly Bryan (Sarah's sister). Marguerite Cook Clark wrote the following about the adoptions.


It always bothered me that Mammy and Grandpap let Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Alice adopt 2 of their children.  Mama said it was because they wanted to leave them their property.
