Captain John Arthur (J. A.) Bryan was born in Cass County, Alabama. On August 31, 1861, at the age of 42, Bryan commanded 115 volunteers who made up Company I of the Third Texas Calvary Regiment. He was a farmer whose wealth measured $13,000 and he was the owner of 12 enslaved persons. Bryan opted to be discharged in mid May 1862 due to his age and aggravated inguinal hernia, at which time he returned home.
