Wasn't David Denham and Brison Gibson the only ones listed as FPC in that
census? Bryson/Brison was said to have been born in Washinton Co., Va., in
1782 and is found in the 1812 tax list Warren County, Tenn, Graham's
district. Many of Bryson's descendants are listed as Indian on the 1910
census, many filed Cherokee claims [rejected] and most, if not all, were
known either as "Magoffin County People" or "Carmel Indians"
