Elizabeth Thrift, 1792-1865

Elizabeth Thrift was my 2nd Great Grandmother. She was born in Virginia to missionary parents. The family moved to Ohio, presumably following the Appalachian Trail. In Ohio she met and married Gilman Bryant and they had 11 children. It is from that union of Elizabeth Thrift and Gilman Bryant that I descend. My antecedents were almost all from New England. This branch from Ohio is hardly a twig on the whole scheme of things. And in fact my father came back to New England where he lived for most of his life. With the arrival of the Mayflower, the vast majority of my ancestors were born, lived, and died in New England.
