If you read and reread this book you will discover that our Brian ancestry has a glorious history.

Our people were independent, determined, aggressive, humble, very devout and yet militant. As our Aunt Minnie Brian used to say,  Ted, you are like all the other Brians, hard headed."

Our people were preachers, singers, chaplains, schoolteachers, missionaries, soldiers, farmers, doctors, ranchers and successful businessmen in all walks of life.

Lastly, most of all our Brian relatives are Baptists, and have been through the ages. Very few have ever united or belonged to any other denomination or religion than that of the Baptist faith.
