    ... The Bryan family, as settlers of Bryan's Station, and from their close connection by marriage with Daniel Boone, bore no unimportant part in the early history of Kentucky.

    Daniel Boone, in 1755, when about twenty years of age, married Rebecca Bryan, whose family, as well as Boone's, were living at that time near Wilkesboro, N. C. On Sept. 25, 1774, Boone with his family emigrated to the country which he had previously (in 1769) explored as far as the Kentucky River, and thither Morgan, James, William and Joseph Bryan, brothers of Boone's wife, shortly followed with their families. They shared with the other adventurous spirits all the dangers and hardships to which they were subject. In 1779, with emigrants principally from North Carolina, those four brothers settled the Bryan Station neighborhood, and built the fort that is now historic. It would require much space to recount the narrow escapes of these families from the murderous tomahawks of the lurking, skulking savages, or the personal deeds of prowess and heroism and the struggles and privations of those brave men and women.

    From Joseph Bryan are descended the family now residing in Fayette County. This branch spell their name with a "t", and in the way Bryan's Station has been and is improperly called Bryant's Station.

    From Morgan Bryan are the Bourbon County family; he was born May 20, 1729, and married Mary Forbes. ...
    [cos1776 Note: error. Should read "father and uncles" as per the 2015 reports of The Boone Society who claim that Daniel Boone's wife, Rebecca Bryan, was NOT the sister of the Joseph Bryan mentioned, but rather his daughter.]
