I am researching my family with the surname Gurganus. My 3rd great grandfather was Bryant Gurganus and he was living in Williamston, NC in 1870. As far as I know, he lived in Martin County his entire life. Gurganus is not a common surname and it is even less common with African Americans. I am unable to find out any information regarding Bryant and the Gurganus name. I have talked to a few people in Williamston but have had no luck. Any information or suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you for reading this.
