I resisted responding to this query because you guys know what I think of Goldman Bryson. He was a scum bag who used the Civil War as an excuse to kill, beat and rape civilians in Monroe County TN and Cherokee County, NC.
He was nothing but a Bushwhacker---not a member of ANY branch of the Union Army. I believe that he or Enoch Voyles who rode with him was personally responsible for the rape of my great grandfather's first wife Margaret Adaline Monday.
Yes, he was killed by his own distant kin and they were glad to do it. He was a disgrace to the good Payne family name. He was tracked down and killed by a company of Cherokee and Mountains men who served with Thomas' Legion CSA, which included his kinsmen.
I didn't want to contact Nancy because I have nothing nice to say about Bryson and apparently she is very proud of him. No need for me to change that.
Talk to you later, Barb<Barbara.McCreary@West.Boeing.com>
