Bryant, _______.  It has been said that the parents of William Bryant (below) were possibly David Bryant and Lydia Cudworth Bryant of Triverton, Newport Co., R.I. I have found no information or sources which would support this but wonder if someone reading this does have information which would clear this question up.

WILLIAM BRYANT, b. abt 1752, possibly in Triverton, R.I.; m. MARY YATES of Bristol, Lincoln Co., Me. (there is apparently some disagreement as to the identity of his wife).[1]

"Unpublished notes of Charles Farnham Kyle of Chester, Maine, indicate that she  [Sally] married Silas on 3 Aug 1803 in Palermo, Me." [1]

William Bryant and Mary Yates settled in Palermo, Waldo Co., Me. in 1782.



SALLY BRYANT, b. in Maine, m. SILAS HAMILTON 3 Aug 1803 in Palermo, Waldo Co., Maine.[1]
