  • Name Joseph J. Bryars 
    Born Oct 1856  Baldwin County, Alabama Find all individuals with events at this location  [2
    • The headstone at Whitmire Cemetery gives a birth year of 1860. Given that the birth years given on his wives' stones are demonstrably erroneous, little confidence is afforded this date. He is listed as 4 years of age in the 1860 census. [1]

    Notes 
    • Joseph appears to be the only child of the union with Bryars. The 1860 census of the Joshua Bryars household reports Joseph alone as a Bryars child. His mother Clarissa has obviously remarried as several children with the surname Jones are enumerated in the household- Jacob, Henry and Zack, the latter being six years Joseph's senior. Joseph also appears as the only Bryars when listed with his mother (remarried to Joseph Deans) in the 1870 census. Joseph is a neighbor of his father (identified as Richard; however, children and spouse information match that of the 1880 and 1900 enumerations) in the 1885 Florida census.
