John Bryan1

#2473, b. before 1785, d. say 1841
Last Edited18 Jun 2016
My ResearchNote*John Bryan was appointed by the court as guardian of John Balkcom's surviving minor children. He may have been related to widow Hester Balkcom, possibly a brother, since it was not uncommon for a widow's brother to be appointed guardian of surviving minor children (see citation).

John Bryan "my friend" was also named co-executor of the unprobated will of Nathaniel Merritt (1819) of Sampson Co. Witnesses were John Bryan, David Merritt, and Lewis Bowen. John Bryan also appeared as a witness to the will of Gabriel Merritt (will 1820).2,3 
Birth*before 1785date estimated from his appointment as guardian of John Balkcom's children in 1806, when he would have to have been age 21 or over. 
(Witness) Estate21 January 1806John Balkcom; Duplin County, North Carolina, USA; The court appointed John Bryan Guardian to Willie Balcom & Tomzin Balcom, Minor Orphans of John Balcom, dec'd, he gave Bond of 1000 pounds; Ordered he take their Estate into Possession. The court appointed Aaron Williams, William Stoakes & John Stallings a Committee to settle the accounts of Estate of John Balcom. It further ordered John Bryan, Guardian to Orphans of John Balcom, dec'd, pay Hester Balcom $30 out of Interest of said Orphans money in his hands for each year she has maintained said two Orphan Children.4 
(Executor) Will18 August 1819Nathial Merritt; Sampson County, North Carolina, USA; see attached copy. In his will, Nathial names sons Gabriel and Patrick, and daughters Treecy Merritt, Unity Merritt, and Ann Merritt. Son Patrick and friend John Bryan were named executors. Witnessed by John Bryan, David S. Merritt, and Lewis Bowen.5
(Witness) Will3 June 1820Gabriel Merritt; Sampson County, North Carolina, USA; In his will he names his wife Sally, son Wright, daughter Tempy Jane. Brother Patrick is named executor. Witnessed by John Bryan and David Merritt. In a petition to the court in February 1821, after Gabriel's death, wife Sally declared that the amount provided her (165 acres, goods, and a slave) was insufficient and that she was entitled to dower, identifying specific land.6 
(Witness) Land13 April 1839John Balkcum; Sampson County, North Carolina, USA; (see attached deed)
John Balkcum sold land to Hester Balkcum for $1070. Hester within two years gave this land to her daughter Nancy Balkcum and grandson James Lucien Balkcum, a toddler, who was son of William L Robinson and Hester's daughter Mariah. It's not clear if this is the land Hester originally received on the death of her husband John Balkcom in 1803, and if so how grandson John Balkcum came into possession.
"... land lying near the waters of the Beaverdam Creek adjoining the land of Nathan Johnson's and Samuel? Johnson Jr ... tract ... beginning at ?? Rogers' old corner ... Scot's Branch ... along Rogers' old line to the Beaverdam Swamp thence up said swamp to the Horse Branch then up along a marked line to a little branch then across said branch to Matthew Pridgeon's line thence said line to the beginning containing 130 acres ..."
Witnesses Wm L. Robinson and John Bryan.7 
Will*1840Sampson County, North Carolina, USA; The will identifies wife Eleanor Bryan and names children, appoints "my dear friend and neighbor David Murphy" executor, and is witnessed by R. Parish, Patrick Murphy, and B. Stith. It identifies land and refers to a large family bible and religious books including a book of sermons.8
