                                                                         ??? Will Patterson Clk(?)

Notice that the eldest "son," Rev. John Flanagan, is not enumerated in this will as among, "all my children." DNA results performed upon the descendants of Rev. John Flanagan does not match the DNA results of the descendants of those enumerated in this will as, "all my children." The DNA of Rev. John Flanagan's descendants matches many who bear the surname, "French" instead.

    Information on sons is from Bryant's will with the exception of John Flanagan. The last is from info on a printout I have on a printout, the origins of which I'm unsure - I've tried to find it in Broderbund's WFT CDs without success. The information on John Flanagan (1815-1869) comes from the aforementioned printout which lists him as the son of Bryant and Milly. Other information is from World Family Tree Super Bundle I (CD), v. 5, tree #1545, copyright 1996, Broderbund and World Family Tree , v. 1, tree #2035, copyright 1995, Broderbund..
