Descendants of
William Amos Dillard Bryan, Sr.

Much of this information comes from the Independent Republic Quarterly, Volume 17, Number 4, Fall, 1983, published by the Horry County Historical Society, 1008 Fifth Avenue, Conway, S.C. 29526. The information was compiled mostly in the 1960's.

Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM AMOS DILLARD1 BRYAN, SR. was born 1785 in Pireway Community, Columbus County, NC. He married ELIZABETH ?.

"William A.D. Bryan, Sr. is the first of his family found in South Carolina. On January 23, 1810, he purchased two tracts on Cedar Creek and apparently moved here at that time. Deed records show that he was of Columbus County, North Carolina--perhaps the Pireway section. The map of Horry District (1820), as contained in Mill' Atlas, shows "Bryan's Mill" on Cedar Creek and Bryan's Store nearby. He served as postmaster for Little River, S.C. from January 14, 1828 to August 10, 1832, being the second postmaster. Prior to this, he served as state senator from 1823-1826. Other information indicates he was Justice of the Peace, Justice of the Quorum and Escheater of Horry District in 1834. Because of the low value in early times, many lands were abandoned or forgotten by the owners and it was the duty of the Escheat's office to reclaim such lands."

"In addition to the original purchase of 675 acres of land on Cedar Creek, about 2 miles west of the village of Little River, William A.D. Bryan, Sr., accumulated much other property in this and nearby areas. He obtained a grant to a 400 acre tract surveyed September 27, 1821 on the N.C. state line about a mile north of the village of Little River. This tract remained in the family until near the middle of the twentieth century. His will shows that he owned 900 acres known as the "Bostwick Plantation" which was located in Little River neck; 500 acres on the seashore known by the name of Cherry Grove, which is, of course, the present day Cherry Grove section of North Myrtle Beach, and the "Round Swamp" plantation which was near Longs, S.C., in a general area between there and Loris, S.C. He apparently died while visiting or living with his son Marsdon, to whom he had bequeathed the "Round Swamp" plantation, and is buried there. Many decades after his death his grandson, Lucian Dillard Bryan, wanted to erect a stone marker at his unmarked grave but by that time he could not determine just which was the correct grave, and for that reason it remains unmarked."
