Birth: Jul. 27, 1784
Death: Jun. 10, 1859

Mr. Bryant was one of the early pioneers of Knox County. His early trading was mostly with the Indians. He was the first merchant, the first postmaster, the first recorder of deeds for Knox County, built the first frame house and the first brick house in Mount Vernon and married the daughter of the first minister of Gospel to settle in Knox County. His father was a cousin of William Cullen Bryant, the poet. (Source: Mound View Cemetery Self-Guided Walking Tour doc.)

The Nov. 28, 2013 Mt. Vernon News “Tenant Purchases Historic Home” by Fred Main, describes the purchase of the house “originally built by Gilman Bryant, one of the founding fathers of Mount Vernon.” This furnished Nov. 29, 2013 by contributor Donald Comis (#48132219).
