~ When Joseph died in 1928, Jennie felt she would not live much longer so she sold her home and belongings and moved from child to child, spending about six months with each. She did this for the next 32 years! My mom has great memories of her grandmother making doll clothes and baking special
things for her. Her Grandmother's visits were always such a treat for her. Most of the Bryan Family are buried in the Bryan Plot at the Methodist Church cemetery in Bowling Green, Hardee, Florida.
