Many families are finding names of ancestors in Mike Watson's list of Revolutionary War Veterans list. E.H. Lepiarczyk notes two in his: John Bryant and William Perryman. Of the latter, he writes,The Perryman bloodline is strong in Adair County although the name has vanished from the Adair County population over time. and notes, Most Griders of Adair County are descendants of William Perryman
By E. H. Lepiarczyk
I am proud to see two of my ancestors on your list of Revolutionary War Veterans. They are John Bryant (ca. 1760-ca. 1841) and William Perryman (1759-1854).
John Bryant apparently was born in Virginia and the John Bryant family is documented as one of the historic first families of Adair County. John Bryant died on his farm in the proximity of Russell Creek which later became known as the Joppa community. His grave is located on his old homeplace farm in the historic pioneer Bryant Cemetery with graves of members of his family.
William Perryman was born in Charles County, Maryland and died on his farm in Russell County, Kentucky. His farm was located in the portion of Russell County which formerly belonged to Adair County in his lifetime.
Many of John Bryant's and William Perryman's descendants are residents of Adair County today. The Bryant name is yet strong in Adair County.The Perryman bloodline is strong in Adair County although the name has vanished from the Adair County population over time.
Most Griders of Adair County are descendants of William Perryman. William Perryman's grave is in Russell County and is located in the Perryman Cemetery on the old homeplace farm of William Perryman.
Thanks to Mike Watson, for remebering our patriotic warriors, our esteemed American forebearers who lived in Adair County during their lifetimes. I am a proud third-great-grandson of both John Bryant and William Perryman. --E H LepiarczykComments re article 53196 A List of Revolutionary War Veterans
