BRYAN FAMILY ANCESTRY

In tracing the ancestry of William Bryan married to Sarah Jane Wilson who is found residing in Geneva, Ontario County, New York, I find some possiblities for parents but no documented proof. William Bryan and his wife, Sarah Jane Wilson, migrated from Ireland in the early 1850's and the first record of this residency is the 1855 census for NYS.  I have labelled the following descendancies as Generation One A; Generation One  B; etc. to help sort the information of four different families. A + sign before a name indicates children are listed in next generation.

FIRST GENERATION A

WILLIAM BRYAN and MARTHA (unknown)

Martha (unknown) married to William Bryan and living in the household of Abraham and Rosannah Thornton in 1850 census is Rosannah's mother. It is quite certain that William died in Ireland before 1850 as there is no evidence that he migrated to America. William and Martha Bryan are named as parents in the death certificate of daughter, Rosannah, filed in the City Clerk's Office at Geneva. Martha possibly died before 1865 as she no longer appears in census data. Note: There is a Martha Brian buried in Washington Street Cemetery, who died October 12 1862, aged 76 years; also on stone is James Brian; died 1864, ae 2 yrs, Martha Brian died 1866, aged 1 year and 6 mos., and Cornelius Dailey who died 22 December 1885, aged 5 mos. This Martha Brian is included in Family "C".

     MARTHA BRYAN
    CENSUS:  Geneva NY 1850 with Abram Thornton; 1855, 1860

FIRST GENERATION B

Have no record of parents' names in this generation but the possibility is that they could be those named in First Generation A, C, or D.

FIRST GENERATION C

THOMAS BRIAN and MARTHA (unknown)

I have found no record of Thomas Brian and Martha (unknown) in US records. They are parents named in death certificate of Patrick Brian filed Geneva NY. This may be Martha Brian
buried in Washington Street Cemetery, Geneva NY  who died October 12 1862, aged 76 years; and shares grave marker with Patrick Brian.

Joseph Bryan, of Monterey, N. Y., died at his home Friday, December 20, 1918. He was well-known as a devoted husband, an affectionate father and a good neighbor. For nearly a year, he had been confined to his bed, having sustained a shock January 5, 1918. During that time everything was done for him that could be done for his comfort. His good deeds are ended here below, but the influence of that quiet, patient, Christian life will continue to be felt for a long time by those who knew him best. His wife was formerly Miss Hannorra McLaughlin, with whom he had lived for forty-three years. The separation was made at the command of the heavenly messenger whom we call death, she having died February 10, 1909. Those left to mourn the loss are: Charles McCarthy, of 34 West Erie Avenue, Corning; James McCarthy, of 68 William street, Corning; Mrs. William Hoyt, Corning R. F. D. No. 4; Mrs. John Hetherington, of Monterey; and William J. Bryan, of 113 Sly avenue, Corning. Another daughter, who became the wife of R. B. Sproul, of Elmira, died November 5, 1899. She was the mother of William Harold Sproul, who died in France on October 22, 1918. Also there are eleven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren who survive: Charles S.

Word was received in Geneva yesterday of the shooting in New York of Thomas Thornton, formerly a resident of Geneva, a brother-in-law of W. J. Barron and William (sic) S. Green of that place. Thornton, living at No. 831 Columbus Avenue, where the shooting occurred, the assailant being Valentine Dick, who lives in the same block. The cause of the shooting was trouble which had arisen between the Thornton and the Dick children. The children had been playmates and the parents friends for some time. The children had quarreled but nothing had been thought of it, but this time the trouble was so serious that the parents became involved and it resulted in Dick drawing a revolver and shooting Thornton four times, once in the shoulder, once in the neck, and twice in the thigh. Thornton was taken to the Manhattan Hospital where at first it was thought that he could live but a short time, but a telegram yesterday afternoon to his Geneva relatives stated he was improving.

    OBITUARY: From Geneva Daily Times 5 June 1905

William Henry Beales, night captain of the police department, died yesterday morning at 4:30 o'clock at his home, No. 71 Cherry street. The deceased was forty-nine years of age. For ten months he has been in declining health. He was first taken with stomach trouble which gradually became acute. In the middle of April Mr. Beales thought that possibly a short rest and change would do him good. He therefore asked for a two weeks' vacation. As he did not improve materially during this period of rest, the police commission gave him a three month's furlough dating from May 1. Since that time he has gradually wasted away until death came yesterday morning. The physicians state that the cause of death was gastritis. The deceased was born in this city and has lived here throughout his life. After attending the public schools of the city he was employed for a period with William and Thomas Smith. But for the larger part of his life he has been employed on the police department. The period of his service extends over twenty-two years. He was elected patrolman by the village board of trustees May 16, 1883. He served in this capacity until September 12, 1898, when he became captain and was assigned to night duty. This position he has held up to the present time. Throughout this long period of service the records of the department show that he has faithfully and conscientiously performed his duty. Besides his career in the police department, Mr. Beales was active in a number of social institutions. He has been a member of Ark lodge, No. 33, Free and Accepted Masons, since 1898. He was also a member of Geneva Tent No. 292, Knights of the Maccabees. In this order he had a $2000 insurance policy. Mr. Beales was a communicant of Trinity church but as he resided in the northern part of the city he attended service in recent years at St. Peter's church. The deceased is survived by his widow, father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. James Beales, of the east Pre-emption road; two daughters, Miss Edith and Miss Maud Beales; five sons, William, Herbert, Ernest, George and Theodore Beales, all of this city; two brothers, George of California, and James of Perry, Ohio; one sister, Mrs. Clifton Osborne; two half-brothers, Ernest and Nelson of Corning; and three half-sisters, the Misses Lilian, Ruby and Ida Beales of this city. The funeral will take place Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the house, and at 3 o'clock from St. Peter's church. Rev. John B. Hubbs, D. D., will officiate. It is expected that both the Masons and Maccabees, as well as the police department, will attend the funeral in a body. Burial will be made in Glenwood cemetery.
