BRYAN, Mary Edwards, author, born in Jefferson County, Florida, in 1846. Her father was Major John D. Edwards, an early settler in Florida, and a member of the legislature. She was married at sixteen years of age, and, while still at school, to Mr. Bryan, a wealthy Louisianan. Mrs. Bryan began to write for publication at an early age, and, after acting for a year as literary editor of the "Literary and Temperance Crusader," a weekly journal published in Atlanta, Georgia, became a regular contributor to the "Southern Field and Fireside." After the war she became editor of the "Semi-Weekly Times," published in Natchitoches, Louisiana, writing political leading articles as well as stories, sketches, and poems. She left this place to assume control of the "Sunny South," an eight-page illustrated paper published in Atlanta, Georgia, which she edited for ten years. In 1885 she became assistant editor of the "Fashion Bazar" and "Fireside Companion" in New York. She has published several novels: "Manch" (New York, 1879); " Wild Work," a story of the reconstruction period in Louisiana (1881); and "The Bayou Bride" and "Kildee" (1886).
