I am happy to provide a quick note about George Chester Bryant. He was the second husband of Dorothy Josephine Johnson Burgraff and without Chet things may not have turned out so well for the Burgraff children. Chet married Dorothy in 1941 and took on her four children during a time when money was pretty hard to come by. He raised those four as his own and then became grandfather and great-grandfather to successive generations of Burgraff children.
Chet’s mother Margaret Utterback died shortly after his birth and Chet and his two sisters, Clacey and Lula were split up between the Bryant, Utterback and Brown families. While Chet remained in Oklahoma with either his uncles Wiley or William Bryant, Clacey and Lula were sent back to Kentucky and raised with Margaret’s family, although not in the same home.
Here’s a link to a PDF for what I currently have on Chet’s line: George Chester Bryant
Chet’s research will be filed with the Johnson/Wilson/Tuttle/Bryant category tag.
