Another family may be here noticed. The Bryant family is an old family. Jesse Bryant is said to
have been the first of that name in the county; he came from England as it is said; he married a
Miss Turbeville, supposed to have been a sister of Rev. William Turbeville, who according to
Bishop Gregg (pp.70 and 71) came over about 1735, and settled at Sandy Bluff, on the Great Pee Dee,
with the colony then and there settled, as their minister. "Several brothers came with him, of whom
some descendants are now to be found in Marion." It may be presumed that sister came too, and that
one of them married old Jesse Bryant. Old Jesse had sons, William, Stephen and Jesse.
