Col. John Stark Bryant was Deputy Sheriff of Grafton County for several years, during which time he took up the study of law. He was admitted to the bar at Haverhill, N. H., in 1846, where he practiced law until his death in 1873. In his early life he was active in military affairs, becoming Capt. of the Company of Volunteers, which office he resigned when he moved to Haverhill.
He was a man of agreeable and cheerful manners, kind and helpful to those in need. It can be said of him that he was a self-made man. From the time he was thirteen years of age he supported himself.
