Bryan Family
Nathaniel Hart [Jr], a boy at Boonesborough in the 1780s, comments to John D. Shane: The Bryans were <very active in opposing something like a fee-bill law in '72 or '73. An open resistance being made, Gov. martin issued a proclamation under which Capt Hart [his father] served, and they were subdued. They were now obliged to take the oath of allegiance. They were called regulators. In '75 when the Revolution broke out, they had scruples of conscience, from having taken this oath, and the whole family came out to the West. Many of them, however, returned, on the restoration of peace. They were men of strong minds, though of not much education.> 17CC208
