    Notes:

    Indiana was being settled in the very early 1800's, but did not become a state till about 1816. Bryant purchased land in Harrison Co., IN in 1814.

    They were pioneers in this area.

    Bryant and Christina (Bird) Breden resided in Greene County, TN from 1794 to
    1805.
    Bryant purchased land in Harrison Co., IN in 1814 and settled at Scott
    Township, Harrison Co., IN. Indiana became a State in 1816. Corydon became
    the first capital.


    There is a Breden Burial Ground at The Potato Run United Methodist Church
    (formerly known as The Potato Run United Brethren In Christ Church) which was
    first known as Brown's Camp Ground. Some of the markers are missing, but this
    cemetery is well kept.
    There is a Potato Run Cemetery also located on the church grounds and many
    Breden ancestors are buried there. Some Breeden are buried at New Amsterdam,
    IN.

    The Potato Run United Methodist Church still has an active congregation and
    some of the current , faithful members are descendants of these early
    pioneers. The church building and property is well maintained. There once
    was a one room school house next to the church.

    Seven Breden men became preachers from this congregation.

    There is a Breden Memorial United Methodist Church at Terre Haute, IN.
    This was Rev. Charles Breeden His wife was also an ordained minister They
    had no children.

    The Potato Run Church is located in the Harrison-Crawford State Forest,
    Indiana State HWY 62, west of Corydon, Indiana It is on Blue River and the Ohio
    River Very scenic Good farmland Crawford County was created from
    Harrison County.

    This area was the settlement for the early pioneers and remains much as it was
    then.
    The forest rangers have removed the remains of the log cabins, due to a fire
    hazard to the forest This was once a thriving community.

    The Corydon Library has several compiled genealogies of these families and
    their roots are intertwined.
