A Bryant & Pritchett Family Tree

Muse's Family Tree

North Georgia

Murrays, Pettys & Pritchetts
These Pritchetts descend from Jasper and Barbary Pritchett of Gilmer County, Georgia (formerly of Buncombe County, North Carolina). My line is from Jasper and Barbary's son, Lewis Pritchett, born 28 November 1814, who married a Duckett. His son, David Wesley Pritchett, married a Pankey, daughter of Rebecca Littleton. David's son, Stephen, married a Murray, daughter of Nancy Petty. Some of these Pritchetts hit the trail for Kansas. Although mine returned to Murray County, others stayed out there and have descendants in that area. Branch lines of Jasper and Barbary in North Georgia are descendants of Jasper Pritchett, Jr., through his daughter, Mary Ann Pritchett, and her half-brother, Doc Taylor Pritchett.

Jasper Pritchett (born 1786 in Virginia)
Lewis Pritchett (born 28 November 1814)
David Wesley Pritchett (born 20 May 1844)

Headricks and Dunns
Esther Vallie Headrick, daughter of Anna Dunn, married Willy Lee Pritchett. These Headricks are thought, but not proven, to descend from William Hedreik (Hedrick), who was a fifer in the Revolutionary War and served under George Washington. See disclaimer. This is the line of research that I have followed:
