CHARLES H. BRYANT, physician and surgeon, Corning, Iowa, was born April 24, 1857, at Sycamore, Illinois, and is the eldest of four children, three sons and one daughter, born to Dr. William W. and Cordelia E. (Sheldon) Bryant. The parents were natives of Massachusetts, of Puritan stock, but moved to Sycamore, Illinois, in 1856, where they have since remained. Our subject belongs to a family of physicians; his grandfather was also a physician and he has a cousin and an uncle who are practicing medicine in Iowa.
The Doctor’s elementary education was received in the graded schools of Sycamore, and at an early age he began the study of medicine under his father, so that at the age of nineteen he was prepared to enter the Chicago Medical College, where he was graduated in the spring of 1879. The following six years he spent in practice with his father at Sycamore, and in May, 1885, he moved to Corning, Iowa; the Doctor is a member of the Knights of Pythias of Corning, having
filled all the chairs of King Arthur Lodge, No. 173; in political matters is a staunch supporter of the principles of the Democratic party.
He was married at Sycamore, Illinois, March 27, 1878, to Miss Lottie V. Harrington, a daughter of George Harsha; her mother died when she was but an infant and she was legally adopted by her grandfather Harrington, taking his name. This union was blessed by one child, a girl, Claire, who only lived to be a comfort to them for three years when she passed away. Hr. Bryant,
while yet a young man, has endeared himself to the people of Adams county, and no one enjoys a more lucrative practice than he.
