Dad and I recently cleared the Bryant-Dingess cemetery at Bearwallow Gap in the head of Piney Fork and Hugh Dingess Hollow on Harts Creek, Logan County, WV. I last visited this cemetery over twenty years ago. 27 January 2018.
The cemetery was overgrown with saplings. Four persons are buried here: French Bryant, Burl Bryant, Auglin Watts, and Mosco Dingess. 27 January 2018.
French Bryant (1855-1938), son of Rufus Bryant, is a major character in my feud book, “Blood in West Virginia: Brumfield v. McCoy.” My Kirk family liked French. 27 January 2018
