Bryant Ward, in Genealogy.com, 20 Jan 2009, Questionable quality.
BRYANT WARD, father of John came from Ireland. He served in the British Army during the colonial wars. BRYANT WARD was also married to NANCY WARD, (GHI-GAU). He was a trader among the Cherokee. His son JOHN WARD came to America and married into the CHEROKEE NATION and had a large family after his marriage to CATHERINE McDANIEL.CATHERINE or KATY was the daughter of "GRANNY HOPPER" a Cherokee.
My ancestry can be traced directly back to Bryant Ward (research indicates he came to America with family to serve in the French and Indian War) I have proved residency in TN with Indian wife Nancy at time of statehood in 1796. His white wife was Ann and they had two sons, John and James. Does anyone have information about his (Bryant, aka Brian ) Ward's white family relations prior to 1780? My line of descent comes from John who married Catherine McDaniel.
