    Notes 
    • The father of George is not known, but there is a John Bryant aged over 45 in the 1820 census at Fort Covington, Franklin County, NY. In that household, there is a male aged 16 to 26 that could be George. We know George was resident in Fort Covington; both paying tax and owning land in 1825.

      This BRYANT family probably came from Norwich, Ct. and is connected with Phillip BRYANT b. 1780 in Norwich (son of John BRYANT and Sarah DURKEE). Phillip was the Capt of the company George served in during the War of 1812. George was then only age 14 or 15. It could be that Phillip was George's uncle. Phillip did have a brother named John born 1771 in Norwich, who could be the man of that name in the 1820 census mentioned above; but I have not been able to trace descendants of John with any certainty other than a John Jr. who married Cornelia BLISS in Moira, Franklin County, NY in 1823.

      It is less likely, but also possible that George is the great-grandson of Ichabod and Ruth (Staples) Bryant. He may be the grandson of Nathan, Job or Gamaliel Bryant, all of whom may have lived in Vermont and had families. This would place George as a second cousin of William Cullen Bryant which corresponds to family tradition because brothers George and Wooster Bryant claimed they were 2nd cousins to the poet (although once removed, the relationship is still second cousin).
