Brian / Bryan

The  Shelby  Democrat
Thursday, April 8, 1920
(From Saturday's Daily)
          Word was received here today by  Ed Shelk  of the death of  Will Bryan,  aged 60 years, who died suddenly Tuesday night at his home in St. Louis, Mo.  The message is a shock to the many friends of Mr. Bryan here as he had just recently been here for a visit at which time he was in good health.
          Mr. Bryan was a resident of this city a number of years ago and was engaged in the grocery business here with his brother,  C. K. Bryan.  The brothers operated a grocery at the corner where the Farmer's National Bank is now situated.  For more than twenty years, Mr. Bryan had been a Pullman conductor and was well known by men and women who were frequent travelers on his run.  He was a genial and sociable man with a ready smile and his personality won him a host of friends who will never forget him.
          After leaving here on his recent visit he went to Marinsville where he was in the sanitarium for several weeks, then returned to his home at St. Louis.  He is survived by a brother,  George,  at Norwood, O., and several sisters residing in Ohio.  Mrs. Emma Bryan,  of west Hendricks street, is a sister-in-law.
          The body was taken to Felicity, O., where the funeral and burial will be held Sunday morning at 10 o'clock.
