Notes for JAMES BRACKEN BRYAN, SR.:
____________________________________________

"James was a native of Tennessee and a brother of John Neely BRYAN."
____________________________________________

James Bracken BRYAN'S middle name may be Booker since John Neely BRYAN, Jr., named his son, James Booker BRYAN.

NOTE from David Krebeil (Wife is a descendant of JNB)
____________________________________________

"The Beeman Family 1841-1949" indicates James B. was born at Pendleton, SC. Also it says that he was a pioneer of Harrison County, TX."
____________________________________________

Before meeting Margaret BEEMAN, John Neely BRYAN, James' younger brother, used James' home in Harrison County, TX as his headquarters and scouted from there.

From Ruth Cooper's NOTES
____________________________________________

"James B. came to Dallas County in 1846 where he opened the first hotel in the small village of Dallas. He lived here eight years and then went to California, where he died. He was a native of Tennessee and a brother of John Neely BRYAN, who built the first cabin where the city of Dallas now stands."

NOTE from "Memorial and Biographical History of Dallas County" p. 692.
____________________________________________

James was appointed Dallas County Treasurer in July 1846 for a 2-year term. He drew the first city map of Dallas.

From Ruth Cooper's NOTES
____________________________________________

James B. was the 2nd husband of Elizabeth BEEMAN.
____________________________________________

"James B. helped his brother, John Neely, with the founding of the town of Dallas, TX. He was County Treasurer in 1847. He was a dentist, mechanic, contractor, and builder and had a mercantile business that burned."

"California was offering flattering inducements to emigrants, so after his divorce from Elizabeth Beeman in 1853, he went to California where he married for a third time and had several children. Little was heard from James B. from California. Two reports: One that he died in 1863; the other that he lived to be a very old man, dying in 1904."

NOTE: This information was taken from the "McCubbin" files, Salisbury, Rowan County, NC. Pam Hooser obtained this info from the Bryan Family file on the 7th floor, Dallas Public Library.
