"The Formation of a Planter Elite: Jonathan Bryan and the Southern Colonial Frontier." Alan Gallay. Athens, GA: The University of Georgia Press, 1989. In this 282 page scholarly work, Gallay, who won the 2003 Bancroft Prize in American History for his study of the Indian Slave Trade, treats the life of Jonathan Bryan (1708-88) a shaker and mover in early Georgia, both as significant in itself and as a source of insight into the social, political, economic and religious life of Georgia in its colonial and early federal periods. There is some limited Bryan genealogy, but the book is more concerned with Bryan's association with Governor Oglethorpe, the Habershams, the Houstouns, Morels, Henry Laurens, George Whitefield and the Great Awakening, various Creek Indian peoples, and with Andrew Bryan, pioneer black Baptist preacher, who was encouraged in his calling by Jonathan while he was the latter's slave. There is some mention of South Carolina, where Jonathan was born and raised. Bryan is a direct ancestor of the several Bryans who have been prominent supporters of the Virginia Historical Society for more than a century and of one of the two owners of this book.
