Bryan Coalter Grinnan

Obituary of St. George T. C. Bryan, Richmond, Virginia.

St. George Tucker Coalter Bryan, widely known citizen and distinguished Confederate soldier, died on the night of April 4, 1916, at the home of his nephew, Judge Daniel Grinnan, near Kenwood, in Richmond, Va. The burial was in the family burying ground at Eagle Point, Gloucester County.

Volunteering in the service of the Confederacy soon after he completed his studies at the Episcopal High School, Mr. Bryan served with conspicuous gallantry in the Army of Northern Virginia. He was a war-time member of the Richmond Howitzers and surrendered with the remnant of Lee's army at Appomattox Courthouse. Throughout his life he was intensely interested in Confederate history and was considered one of the best-informed men in the State on this subject.

After the close of the war Mr. Bryan took a special course in mining engineering at the University of Virginia and pursued the practice of his profession in the West. Here, during the most important period in that section's industrial development, he made an enviable reputation as a mining expert.

Several years ago he returned to his native State and had since been engaged chiefly in the study of Confederate history. Recently he had given much time to the study of the economic history of the South during the War between the States and had gathered much valuable data touching on this question.

Mr. Bryan was born at Chatham, just opposite Fredericksburg, Va., October 23, 1843, the son of John Randolph Bryan and Elizabeth Coalter, and was a brother of the late Joseph Bryan, of Richmond. He was a member of the Episcopal Church.
