Notes for Daniel Boone Bryan

!Kentucky: A History of the State, by Battle, Perrin, & Kiffin, 5th ed., 1887, Jessamine County:
Daniel Bryan appears to have been one of the progressive men of his day; he received only such education as the common schools afforded in the county at that time. He bought a farm which was located just beyond the line of Jessamine and Fayette Counties, on the Lexington and Nashville Turnpike, the present residence of Joseph H. Bryan, his grandson. He built a female seminary, where for many years the daughters of the first and early families of the neighboring counties were educated; he also built mills for the manufacutre of paper, also operated a grist-mill at the same place. The mills were located upon Jessamine Creek.
He also owned 2,000 acres located on what was then known as South Elkhorn and East Hickman. In 1812, he was engaged in the manufacture of guns and gunpowder for the United States government.
