Found 'foot prints' of James O'Bryans/Bryans in several records in Rockbridge County, Botetourt County and area's of Botetourt which today would be considered Montgomery County (along with a Thomas Bryans in that region). In 1778 James Bryans is listed in the Rockbridge Co tithables. He also had property in Rockbridge which he leased out (this is my limited understanding of the deed records I have of him). I'm interested in this James Bryans and am willing to 'trade info'. Including the three deed records from Rockbridge. I also have entre's of his in the Court records of Botetourt Co (mostly debt related law suits).
