Hello and thank you for your reply to my query. I can start with my Bryant side of the family.
James Gleason Bryant, b- Oct 1, 1876 in Decalb county, Tenn. Married Roxie Mae Dodd July 4th, 1914. James's father was, William Riley Bryant Born 1-2-1852 in New Middleton S. Tennesee, he married Martha Ann Williams in Dekalb, Tenn. in 9-2-1875. His father was William Gleason Bryant born oct. 9, 1817 in Virginia. He married Nancy Adamson in May 26, 1835 in Tenn. William Gleason's father was James T. Briant born in 6-5-1790 in Virginia, he married Rachel Alderson in June 6, 1815 in Virginia. James's father was John (2) Briant born in 11-5-1754 in Patrick Virginia, he married Judith Elizabeth Winfrey bef. 1781 in Virginia. His father was John (1) Briant no further info. on him. I do have death info. but will wait to see if we connect anywhere and if we do we can compare info.
Next is the Collins line, I'm not real familiar with the Collin's side and will do my best. If we need to I can get you in contact with family that has more info. than I.
My husbands G-Grandmother was Victoria Asenath Collins Dodd she was born April 25, 1854 I don't have a place of birth. She married Louis T. Dodd in Brazo's county, Texas in Dec. 23, 1871. Her father was Meshack Collins born in 1815 place unknown. He married Eliza Jane Pound place and date unknown. Meshack's father was Shadrack Collins Sr. born in N. Carolina date unknown. He married Mary Pounds date and place unknown. I'm very sorry about not knowing the date's or place but I merged 3 of my family treemaker file together and I've had a mess ever since. Dates have been deleted, places of birth are gone; marriages, the works. It's been a real mess and I haven't had the time or energy to go back and try to work on the dates and places. I can get with famiy and correct some of the info. I can't give you right now. As I told you before I'm not sure how Dan Blocker fits into our family but it has been a story that all the family knows about, we just need to find out where he fits in. Thanks alot for your info. and please get back with me as soon as you can.
