William Bryson (Sr) (married Isabella Holmes - Way too old to fight in the
1. James Holmes Bryson (1740/50-c1835). Alleged to have fought at Kings
Mountain, I've seen no proof.
2. John Bryson (c1755). Alleged ". No proof.
3. William M. Bryson (c1750). Alleged. No proof.
4. Andrew Bryson (c1752). Alleged. Son applied for Pension as heir of
Andrew, was rejected for lack of proof.
5. Samuel Bryson (c1754). Pensioner.
6. Daniel H. Bryson (1756). Pensioner.
So you can see of the six sons, all were supposedly at Kings Mountain, but
only two are proven (Samuel and Daniel) and they are both pensioners. None
of the others left us any kind of paper trail of actual service. Andrew's
son James N. Bryson applied for a pension, but was rejected.
