"Cynthia Bryan, daughter of Henry and Elizabeth (Sparks) Bryan, was married (first) to John Killebrew on November 11, 1813, in St. Charles County, Missouri. (John Killebrew had been married previously, on August 18, 1808, to Sarah Darst.) Lillian Hays Oliver has noted: "John Killebrew must have died in January 1814, for Dr. Seth DIillington sent a doctor bill dated Jan. 12, 1814 for visit to John Killebrew during his last illness for 'visit, bleeding and medicine.' The inventory of the Killebrew estate was dated Jan. 7, 1814, and the sale was Feb. 22, 1814." Ms. Oliver has also noted that among the estate papers there is the following: "On Oct. 2, 1815, John B. Callaway, Justice of the Peace, sent to the estate of John Killebrew, deceased, a bill for $4.00 for performing the marriage ceremony of John Killebrew on Nov. 11, 1813. John Davis swore that the account presented by J. B. Callaway was correct, and on the same day Lawrence Killebrew paid the account in full." Ms. Oliver states that Cynthia Bryan was married (second) to Alonzo Turtelott. In the listing of the children of Henry and Elizabeth (Sparks) Bryan given by Dr. J. D. Bryan (see page 796 of the QUARTERLY of March 1964), he gave no information regarding Cynthia Bryan other than that she had been married to "Alonzo Fourtelatt." We have no further information."
