  • Notes 
    • William Bryan's will is dated May 23, 1780, which is the day he was wounded, according to his son Daniel to Draper, and he died on May 30 "the eighth day after". George Bryan was Spraker's source of "May 7", and he was a nephew, whose memory for dates may not have been quite as good, nor was he quite as directly connected. William's will is witnessed by Wm. Grant, Sam'l Boone, and Joseph Bryan.

      William, Jr. actually died in March, the 10th. He was out hunting with
      a friend and was shot & died immed, while the other young man was chased
      six miles to the station. This is described by Daniel B. Bryan [brother], George Bryan [cousin] and in the account book of [I think] Morgan Bryan-2 which is at the Presbyterian files in PA, but copy in Bryan's Station Heroes & Heroines. William Junior had died about six or seven weeks prior to his father.
