I thought it would be a little difficult to comply with Mike's request to author a Christmas message for the TFH especially since at the time of this writing it is September in Oklahoma. I wasn't very optimistic about discovering inspiration for the mood I would need. So, I concentrated instead along the line of defining what Mike's years' long work in geneaology translated into for me as a kind of "Outsider". Not surprising1y, I discovered that the center of Mike 's and countless others' genealogical work centered around the same focal point as the Christmas season -- family. Granted, it is quite a lengthy extension of the family nucleus, but nonetheless family. It is intriguing to me to pore over the intertwining details of the Terry families arid to relate them to our own little family, then conjure visions of those early ancestors as they would celebrate the Christmas season. I'll wager, all in all, it was not too much different than the spirit of how e ourselves, today's Terrys, go about preparing our homes, activities, and selves for the celebration. Regardless of how each of us chooses to spend our Christmas time, whether it's in the snowy climes of the Colorado Rockies or the windy warmth of Oklahoma; travelling for miles to gather with as much of our families as possible, or staying close to home; there is still the binding tie of thoughts of family and those friends so close to us that they, too, are family. And, in that thought of unity, I discovered not only the spirit of Christmas, but also the spirit of what our work in geneaology means -- the bonding of family. So, from the Mike Terrys to our extended family, we wish you a happy holiday season.


A special thanks to Jay Terry and C. Morris Terry for sending contributions above their subscriptions to help me pay for the growing costs of mailing the TERRY FAMILY HISTORIAN. It will surely come in handy. Mike Terry

I finally received a copy of A Partial History of William Terry and his Descendants 1724-1981 by Lula Terry Elliott, 301 Pine Clayton NM 88415. Published in 1981 by Terry Printing Inc., 1653 5. Jackson, Janesville, WI

53545. The cost is $10.00 and it is 100 pages. It may be ordered from the publisher.

The book deals with the descendants of William Terry born about 1724 and died in 1803 in Botetourt County, Virginia. It is believed that he married twice and his second wife is noted to be Rachel Manson. His children were William Jr. of Black Run of Roanoke Virginia; Jasper and wife Ruth; John of Anderson Co. Tenn. and wife Esther Brown; Susannah wife of Thomas Brown; Miles husband of Hannah Horton, Marcy wife of Jonathan Harrison; Rachel wife of John Martin and Jemima wife of Ezekiel Boucher. There are included family sheets for William and Rachel Manson Terry, Miles and Nancy Baswell Terry, Rachel Terry and Thomas Sandage, Elias Terry and Eleanor Sandage which are some of the earlier Terry names mentioned. A majority of the book deals with the children of John and Esther Brown Terry who removed to Perry County Indiana ca 1815. It has numerous narratives by older members of the family, newspaper clippings, numerous pictures, maps, marriage and other types of records. A lot of work went into this volume on the Terry family descended from William. There is also a very nice newspaper clipping about Mrs. Elliott who is an accomplished artist. She kindly gave me permission to print portions of her book in the Terry Family Historian. I shall from time to time try and print more of it, particularly if we can get more documented marriages or other records from early Indiana Terry families.

The following is an excerpt from the book by Bertha (Terry) Beatty, 1980 a daughter of Francis Marion Terry. Page 30.

When I was asked to do a page for this book about the Terrys, I didn't know what to write. I'm sure that there are other contributors who know more of the "statistics" of this family--who married who--dates of births and deaths—-who were their children, and so forth. So, I will skip statistics for this reason, also, because I don't know very many.

I am the second youngest child of Francis Marion Terry, son of Elias Terry. My father had a family of fourteen children and I am the only survivor of that family. I am Bertha Terry Beatty. My husband, Franklin F. Beatty, and I have been married forty years and we live in Aurora, Ohio. We have no children. So, anything I can contribute that might be of interest would have to be memories of life as a Terry, in the early years of this century, on a hilly, 130 acre farm, in Southern Indiana.

My father, Francis Marion Terry, was a Civil War Veteran, Co. F., 26th Indiana Infantry Volunteers. He served two "hitches" from 1862 to l865. I have the originals of his discharge papers. The handwriting on these old papers is quite interesting and very different from what you see today. I also have copies of his "payroll" taken from the National Archives of Washington, D.C. These were given to me by Earl Lincoln of Los Gatos, California, who is a grandson (Mr. Lincoln traces his ancestry on his father's side back to Abe Lincoln).

Francis Marion Terry was a hunter-as all pioneer men were-for meat for the table. He killed one of the last of the original deer on our farm, early in this century. It was an eight point antlered buck. The horns hung on the living room wall until my brother died in 1964, then I gave them to the Historical Museum at Lincoln City, Indiana, along with my father's muzzle loading, cap and ball rifle, a gun of Civil War vintage.


Page 100

The farm in Perry County Indiana, was hilly and mostly poor ground but it was self-sustaining for our needs∑ Almost all our food came from the farm; meat, vegestables and fruits, preserved, canned and stored for winter use. Cornmeal and flour for bread came from the corn and wheat raised on the land. My father was ahead of his time in that his fruit trees were "grafted" or "budded" to produce more and better fruit from the same tree. I'm not sure how it was done, but it was evidently successful for we had an abundance, which was certainly shared with our neighbors. My father's grandchildren remember an old apple tree which produced several varieties, which they enjoyed during their visits to the farm.

The school and the church were educational, spiritual, and entertainment centers of the community and our lives were much affected by them. The Lily Dale Church of Christ is still a very active church of that community. It was formerly called The Blue Rim Church of Christ. My father's brother, Judge Emery Terry, was a preacher and he usually came once a year to hold a revival at our church. It was a big event for me, as a small girl, because Uncle Emery and Aunt Jane stayed part of the time at our house and I loved company and I especially loved them.

The school was a one-room school and I went there through the elementary grades. I also taught in a one—room school. Of.course, they are long since replaced by modern education methods and buildings. They were very cold in winter, heated by a single pot-belly stove and had out-door toilets and water to drink in a bucket from a community dipper. But, we surely learned the basics of education, reading, writing and arithmetic, and no one went on to high school who couldn't read or write, as I'm afraid sometimes happens today.

There were stories in the family handed down by word of mouth∑ I cannot vouch for the truth of any of them, but they are interesting tid-bits anyway. One was that two brothers (Terry) came to America from England as stowaways in the late 1600's or early 1700's. One brother stayed in the New England area (Connecticut, maybe), and the other migrated south to Virginia. The history of Thomas De-La-Hunt on southern Indiana lists the travels of the Terry family through the southern states and settling in southern Indiana prior to 1815. Another story was that there was an Indian wife somewhere along the line. (I was always sort of proud of that, I liked being part Indian.) Also, there was a Hugeunot inheritance which merely meant French Protestant. This story is rather gruesome; my father was supposed to have been one of a posse of eleven men, on horseback, with masked faces, who hanged a neighbor. This man was supposed to have killed his wife and hid her mutilated body in the well. I suppose the law officers were very few and far between in the backwoods of those days, so they took the law into their own hands. Truth or not, I do not know. I do remember there was always a "hush up" attitude when the house where it supposedly happened was mentioned.

Francis M. Terry was an honest, God-fearing, self-educated man. Since he was 63 years of age when I was born, I didn't get interested in his stories until he was too old to tell them, and for that I am sorry. There are three remaining grandsons to carry on the Terry name of his family: Lloyd Terry, Jr., Marshall Terry and Robert Terry, all of Perry County, Indiana.

There is one other item I can add to this story that maybe of interest as a coincidence of birth statistics. There were three families of Terrys, twenty-one children in all, who were born in the farm house where I lived the first eighteen years of my life. Francis M. Terry and Nancy Sands Terry, his first wife, had seven children, four daughters and three sons. Francis M. Terry and Mary Kilburn Terry,his second wife, had seven children, four daughters and three sons. In both families, three daughters and one son each survived infancy and grew to adulthood. Francis M. Terry's last son, Lloyd, and his wife,


Page 101

Lillian Lawalin Terry, also had seven children, four daughters and three sons. But the chain of coincidence stopped there for all seven of these children-the last ones born in that old farm house- are living today. The farm house and land was sold to the Government some years ago, and now there is a lovely small lake and park, a recreational area, where once lived a large family.

In order to continue to add new Terry information I need the following contributions for the Terry Family Historian. Information before 1900 will be given priority.

Family sheets, Lineage charts, obituaries, marriage notices, newspaper clippings, military records, census information, wills, poems, cemetery listings, recipes, anything of interest to Terry families.

I try and publish on those counties in which I have the most information. In this way more connections can be made. If you can get lists of Terry surnames such as marriages, pensions, for whole counties or states these would be helpful in identifying Terry families.

If you do not have much on statistics but a colorful or interesting family story I would appreciate this also as I do tire of so much dates, dates, dates as I am sure that you all do. If you do not wish to duplicate what might already be contributed, please send me a list of what information you might have and I will let you know if it has already been contributed.

The response to the Terry Family Historian has been been very good. So good that I have exhausted my supply of Vol0 1, Nr. 1 and I fear that I did not order enough Vol. 1, Nr. 2 to meet the growing demand. If there is enough demand for these earlier volumes I will have them reprinted, but as of now I am not financially able to do so.

Mr. Jay Terry
222 Woodland Drive
Orem, Utah 84057

Dear Mr. Terry:

I received a postcard from Mike Terry telling me that you are working on the Win. TERRY-Nancy GOOCH line. I have found very little on my Thomas TERRY, but several others, including Mr. Woodford Terry (of Oak Ridge, Tn.-formerly of Cookville, Putnam Co.), believe that my Thomas is the son of Win. & Nancy.

I have been seriously collecting TERRY info for over 7 years and have not found another family into which he could "fit".

Last week my husband, Bill, and I were in E. Tenn. doing research. We took my 80 yr. old mother to see her birthplace in Va. & to two cemetaries to visit the graves of 3 of her grandparents.

I worked at the library at Bristol, Kingsport, Newport, Knoxville; the courthouses at Dandridge (Jefferson Co.), the 2nd oldest town in Tenn. & Newport (Cocke Co.); and the Archives in Nashville.

My Thomas TERRY married Malinda PRIDDY d/o Sgt. Richard PRIDDY, Patriot of Va. & Judith FORREST of Halifax Co., Va. They had several children & grandchildren who married TERRYs, and, so far I have found no relationship between any two of them.

To show how strange relationships can be the wife of my husband's business partner, Ann Terry FOX, whose father was born at Meridian, Miss., descends from Malinda TERRY's sister Celia PRIDDY who married Gideon TERRY. The women were sisters-we don't believe that the men were brothers. (Thomas named a son Gideon as did his son, Francis (my g-gf). We believe that the Gideon who was Thomas' brother was still living with his mother in Tenn.; while the other one appears in Miss. as Head of a Household in 1830.

I have a marriage date & place for Celia & Gideon, but not for my Thomas & Malinda. What I do have - records concerning Judy PRIDDY's Rev. Widow's Pension.

The first 5 or 6 marriage books are missing for Oktibbeha Co., Miss. & I am unable to prove the marriage of Sarah Ann (Sallie)

Page 103


LOCK(E) & Francis TERRY (my g-grandparents). Francis (Frank) bought land from the Federal Land Office, located at Dardanelle, for land located south of Ft. Smith near Indian Territory, in 1858. Mrs. Sarah TERRY sold the land in 1872. They never appear on the Censuses - until 1900 when Sarah is shown with a son, John, b ca 1870.

The courthouse at Greenwood (a small town south of Ft. Smith in the same co.) was burned once by Belle Starr & leveled by a tornado in 1969. The bottom portion of the Tax Book was burned- so no tax recs. An abstract office has told Bill that they have no record showing her relationship to Francis. I don't know when or where Francis TERRY died. I have death certificates of 3 of his sons & the info is not the same on any of them.

I did some research at Raleigh about 18 mounts ago & obtained copies of the Guardian's Bonds for Thomas & Gideon TERRY.

Since Bill and I are both envolved in genealogy, we have two microfilm readers and a fiche reader in our home. The librarian of our local LDS Branch Lib. gives me the old fiche when the new arrives from Salt Lake. (Excluding the CFI-that has to be returned to Salt Lake to be destroyed-I suppose that someone would that info for profit if it were generally available). The fiche covers the entire card catalogue of holdings at Salt Lake. I find the Surname & Locality files especially helpful. In some cases, I am able to find books in other libs. that are not available here.

Mike certainly did a beautiful issue for a beginner-that quality will be hard to keep up unless he has a lot of cooperation from others. I already had most of the info published, but getting it was costly & slow over a period of years. I have had the N.C. Mar. Bonds. on fiche for several years. In fact, before


Page 104


I catalogued all the Mar. Bonds. for Granville Co., N.C. two years ago (before the new book was published-I could have saved lots of time & money). Those bonds are on note Cards in eleven long metal filing drawers. I then arranged all of the N.C. TERRY's by counties and male & female in each county so that family research would be somewhat simplified. (I have the microfilm of both the male & female index here at home. I also have: Orange Co. Index to Wills 1756-1961, Vols. 1,2,3; Granville Co. Cross Index to Wills 1762—1928, Vols. 1,2; Cas— well Co. Cross Index to Wills 1777-1948, Vols. 1,2; Caswell Co. Guardian's Accounts 1794-1819, Vol.-; and several books of abstracts of county records.) The reason I have been so lengthy is that I wanted you to know that I am a serious researcher and not one of those persons who "bait" others for info. I am a great believer in sharing info., but, it should be a two-way street.

I have been a member of DAR for over 15 yrs. That is the one line I didn't have to trace-Mother did it for me-she has been a member for many years. I did our research for Huguenot Soc. ten generations fully documented. I am just about ready to start typing another Huguenot line of 14 generations-all on Mother's side. I recently completed another line of 10 generations for Daus. of Colonial Wars; and am working on Magna Carter. In April, I was in Washington for DAR, The Hereditary Desecedants of Loyalists & Patriots, New York Delegate to the Congress of The National Huguenot Society. I served on the Credentials Coin. & have been asked to do so again next year.

The TERRY Family is one to be proud of; as are the GOOCH & JONES Families. I have collected a little on those lines, just in case my Thomas descends from them. I find that I had better gather info-just in case-for sometimes I don't find it again.

I spent most of the month of Sep. 1981 in France with a group of 40 Huguenot Descs. from America on a Pilgrimage and World Congress. While there I found many THIRREYs, and other spellings. I do not know if any of the American TERRYs were Huguenots or not, but I believe that some of the English TERRYs resulted from the Norman Invasion. I will have to give that some study.

Please reply to my letter-giving me your lineage; and feel free to criticize my conclusions. I welcome corrections and additions. Perhaps we are both of Nancy & William

Another TERRY Cousin,

I, Madelyn Terry Payne, 5036 Crestwood Drive, Little Rock, Ark. 72207;
spent Friday, 10 Sep 1982 at the Sebastian Co. Courthouse, Ft. Smith,
Arkansas researching the above marriages. Please forgive me for any
errors and ommissions, for I had no help with the large books which
were dangerously far over my head even with a ladder, until about an
hour before closing time, when Bill (my husband) did some climbing
and lifting for me. Thanks to Bill, this work is fairly complete.
I was also able to obtain many of the marriages through the 1940's,
which I will type for the future if the need arises.

Research Extracts by Carol E. Dickinson:

From Pioneer Collections —— Report of the Pioneer Society of the State of Michigan Together with Reports of County, Town and District Pioneer Societies W. S. George & Co. State Printers & Binders Vol. 8, pg. 233 titled Personal Reminiscences by Ephraim S. Williams of Flint (MI).

"When I first went to Sagina we were a part of the town of Pontiac, where we had to go to vote and transact our town business. The first white child born in Saginaw was my daughter Julia...born September 9, 1833....When I was a postmaster at Saginaw the mail was first carried by Joshua Terry in a valise, most of the time on his back; it used to come to Flint in mud wagons, and often through the Grand Blanc woods the passengers would get out and with rails pry the stage wagon out of the mud, rarely arriving at Flint before 10 or 12 P.M., and often we had to sit up all night for it, to distribute and make up the mails for Saginaw to leave early in the morning...."

From the above Vol. 22, pg. 453 titled "Letter from Governor Vinton to C. W. Grant: ". . .Governor Vinton and Stephen Benson left Avon, Livingston County, N.Y., Jan. 3, 1830, and after walking most of the way through Canada, arrived at Detroit, Jan. 11. Spent a few days at Pontiac and then continued their journey through to Saginaw. At Flint, Capt. Joshua Terry joined their party. He was a collector of taxes for the township of Pontiac and was going to Saginaw on that business. They were one day in making the journey from Flint to Pine Run a distance of fourteen miles, but the following day completed the distance to Saginaw, twenty six miles further. Governor Vinton selected the land where Ben McClelland now lives and went to Detroit to enter it. At this time there were no settlers between Flint and Saginaw...."

From the above Vol. 22, pg. 406 titled Settlement of Oakland County. "In 1820 and 1821 the tide (of settlers) increased. Such well known settlers as Judah Church, Abner Davis, Alex. Galloway, Joshua Terry, Judge Steven Reeves, Capt. Hervey Parke, Enoch Hotchkiss, and Rufus Clark, came to Pontiac and its vicinity. . . . "

From Vol. 1, pg. 20, titled First Social Reunion: "In the letter from ThomasA. Drake of Pontiac, and remarks by Edwin Jerome, are graphically portrayed some of the perilous incidents of pioneer life. These, with a sketch of the life of "Uncle Harvey Williams" read by Hon. C.D. Little of Saginaw, we give nearly entire. Mr.. Drake's letter is as follows:

(Author's Note: Research of Terrys of Kentucky is complicated by the present state's early designation as a Virginia county and the constant subdivision of original counties into smaller counties. In my own search, I copied the names of all Terrys listed in early records, and the untangling process still continues) .

One of the earliest Terrys in Kentucky was a John Terry, who apparently settled near the mouth of Harrod'ds Creek, along the Ohio River eight miles above Louisville, Ky., in 1775. By virtue of his settlement and his raising a crop of corn, John Terry qualified for 1400 acres of Kentucky land. He died in 1780 and James Douglass was named administrator of his estate.

Douglass, one of the early surveyors of Kentucky lands with Thomas Bullitt, James Harrod, Hancock Taylor, John Floyd, and the McAfee brothers, James, George and Robert, apparently received title to the 1400 acres held by John Terry. Douglass in 1780 transferred the land to Col. William Fleming, one of three commissioners named by Virginia to straighten out the confusion attending land titles in Kentucky.

Fleming did not acquire title to the land until 1786, after filing and winning a suit against the "Escheator of Kentucky District."

Whether or not the John Terry land was escheated (appropriated) by Virginia is unclear. Properties of persons who actively favored the crown of England during the Revolutionary War were taken from them.

Col. Fleming's diary on April 20, 1780 reveals his bargain with Douglass for "Terry's pre-emption and settlement" and four days later his assignment of warrants to "Mr. Terry" transferred from Capt. (William) Christian via Col. (Benjamin) Logan.

My sources are the premption certificate to Col. Fleming in 1786: "History of Kentucky" by Bodley; "History of Pioneer Kentucky" by Cotterill, and "Travels in the American Colonies" by Mereness, which contains excerpts from Col. Fleming's diary.

1780 -- A John Terry, assignee of James Duncan, who was assignee of George Slaughter, acquired 325 acres along Roundstone Creek in Jefferson County, believed to be present Hardin County. Others acquiring land nearby were Ebin Proctor, John Sinoot, Proctor Ballard and Peter Hedgman Triplett. (Some sources say 1781).

1781-- A John Terry, assignee of John Poake (Peak), acquired 200 acres of land on Main Fork of Sugar Creek, Lincoln County, believed to be in present Garrard County. That record is dated Sept. 6, and another entry on Nov 19 lists John Terry, assignee of Green Clay, as acquiring 100 acres on Sugar Creek adjoining his earlier 200 acres. (A landmark mentioned is a beech tree on which the initials "J. T." are carved).

Ref: "Index to Old Kentucky Surveys and Grants" by the Kentucky Historical Society and "Old Kentucky Entries & Deeds" in the Filson Club Publication # 34.

1783 -- A Joseph Terry on Jan. 18 was granted 2000 acres in Fayette County, Ky., on Hickman's Creek. The information is found in "Kentucky Land Grants; Virginia Land Grants Section."

1787-8 -- John and Enos Terry, who are listed in Lincoln Co. militia in

1782, are on Madison Co. tax lists. They are believed to be father and son.

1788 -- Agnes Terry and James Pollard (later information indicates that his name was James Pointer) were married Nov. 7 in Lincoln Co., Ky. The source is Kentucky Pioneer and Court Records .

1789 -- Otho or Othe Terry listed in Madison Co., Ky. Source is the tax list record erroneously called "First Census of Kentucky."

1790 -- John and Reuben Terry listed in Fayette Co. Believed to be father and son. John listed in 1788 as John "Turry" or "Turrey" and in 1789 as John "Tervey." Source: First Census of Kentucky.

1799 -- Thomas Terry acquired 200 acres in Warren Co. along Gasper River.

Source: Kentucky Land Grants, Virginia Grants section.

1800 -- Second Census of Kentucky, by Clift, lists these Terrys: Jesse, in Barren County; Reubin and Thomas, in Bourbon County; David, in Campbell County, and John Terry, in Garrard County.

After 1800 -- Kentucky Land Grants, Virginia Grants Section, lists these

Terrys: Thomas, Livingston Co., 1803 and 1828; Miles, Floyd Co., no date; Miles Lawrence Co, 1830 and 1832; Stephen, Christian Co., 1819; John, Livingston Co.,1821; Micajah, Logan Co., 1822; Robert, Henderson Co., 1823 and 1825; Josiah,Pulaski Co., 1823; Elijah, Pulaski Co., 1823, and James M., Logan Co. 1831.

Still other Terry names are Leonard, Isaac, George W., James J., Martin, Calvin and Milton. Most of these grants were after 1820.

Since my ancestors came from Kentucky to present Cincinnati about 1790 I have not pursued others who apparently do not connect to my line.

Leanardo Andrea papers, page 19. Clara Ann TERRY of Fork Shoals (SC) and residing along the Laurens County line married Jonathan LINDLEY and they removed to Christian Co.

Research Extracts of Carol Dickinson cont. FROM page 116.

"....Our business to Saginaw was to locate the seat of justice for that county. There we found Judge Dexter and Engineer and Surveyor Risdon platting the city of Saginaw...."

There was then an uninhabited forest where East Saginaw now stands, and it was said that the whole country, after getting back from the river, was a morass and uninhabitable. However, we resolved to inspect it for ourselves. With Jewett for a guide, we traversed the country up and down the river, and from the river back, until we were satisfied we had found the best place for a court-house . Besides Jewett, there was with us that day a man by the name of Joshua Terry of Pontiac. Frost and I fixed upon a site, and drove a stake to indicate the spot selected. We took measurements from different points on the river, with such bearings as would enable one to find the identical spot, and agreed to meet the next morning and make our report. I went to Jewett's shanty at Green Point, and Frost went to the fort, as it was called, where he would find our other associate. The next morning, to my surprise, I found that Frost had been overcome, demoralized, and had actually signed a report locating the site on the lot slected by Dexter. Through the love of whisky entertained by Frost, and the love of gain by the other commissioner, the county-seat was located at Saginaw ...."

From the above Vol. 3, pg. 574 Titled Oakland County "....About one and a half miles through the woods we approached the village of Pontiac, where we found a small framed house on the west side of Saginaw street, nearly opposite where the Methodist church now stands, occupied by Mr. Terry....These were the only buildings at this time, June 1, 1821, on Saginaw street...."

(Note by Carol: I do not have any geneaology on this or these Joshua Terry's although naturally I hope I'm working on mine among them.)

Notes from Edna Harris Bushnell:

Letter dated 17 Jul 1817 to Stephen Terry of Botetourt Co . , VA from his son, Nathaniel Davis Terry, of Barren Co., KY who married 19 Oct 1815 in Rockbridge Co., VA Martha Bagby .--printed in the July 1980 quarterly of the South Central Kentucky Historical Society.

In this letter he acknowledged the receipt of his father' letter dated 14 Feb. in which his father stated that they might sell out their land in Botetourt Co., VA and join him in Barren Co., KY. He asked his father to sell the 200 acres "you gave me" for he could use the money. He described their trip to Kentucky by way of Abbingdon (VA) and how upon their arrival in KY they traveled into Christian Co., KY where they stayed with Uncle Terry better than a week, & from there they proceeded on to Glasgow, KY. He said that Martha, his wife, had been very sick about the last of April for about three weeks, and mentioned something about their baby son, Bennett Lewis Terry. He speaks of his Uncle Isham Davis living in Warren Co. KY near Bowling Green, KY.

Page 133


"Myself and Bagby have bought 200 a. of good land as there is in Barren County for $975 about 9 miles from Glasgow on the Salt Works Road, 10 miles from the Green River and about 3 miles from Bear Wallow, with 10 acres cleared & fenced, a tolerable good hewed log house & other necessary houses, where he expected to move that winter.

There is another letter dated 18 Apr 1818 from Martha Bagby Terry, his wife to Miss Drucilla Terry of Botetourt Co . VA and the salutation of which is to "Dear Mother & Sister" (in-law) in which she mentions "Uncle Bagby"( John), "Sylvanus Bagby" (son of John & Matilda Davis Bagby), Cousin Elvira (dau. of John & Matilda Davis Bagby), and her baby son, Bennett Lewis Terry. Letter in possession of descendant: Mr. Wm. S. Terry IV, Route 1, Cave City, KY 42127 (Oct. 1980).

---- From TERRY RECORDS OF VIRGINIA by Edna Harris Bushnell p. 14.

Nathaniel Terry of Halifax Co. VA: On 12 Mar 1779 he was appointed a Capt.Lt. of the 10th VA regiment on the Continental Line. He served for 2 years in a Company commanded by himself. He served until the end of the War, at which time he was a Captain in the 10th Va. Reg. of the VA Line; he received commutation certificates for five years full pay granted by the resolve of 22 Mar 1783; and further, that he was received as pensioner since 3 Mar 1826, nothing.

On the 6th Dec 1828 from the Treas. Dept., Third Auditor's office: "It appears by the records in this office, that final settlement certificates have been issued for the commutation of 5 years of full pay to Nathaniel Terry, Capt. in the VA line, amounting to $2400.00 It further appears that Nathaniel Terry is not now on the Pension List for any agency, and has not been since 3 Mar 1826. Capt. Nathaniel Terry drew a Pension at Nashville, Tenn. & part time at Lexington, KY. On 10 Dec 1833 Nathaniel Terry appeared before

From History of Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, Crawford and Gasonade Counties of Missouri by Goodspeed Publishing Co., 1888 contributed by Gladys Morris Tate 227 N. 28th St., Belleville, IL 62221. (Franklin County, pg. 831)

W. M. Terry, collector of Franklin County, and one of the leading citizens of Union, the county seat, was born in St. Louis County, fourteen miles west from the city of St. Louis, July 31, 1828, and is the son of Benjamin D. and Mary (Jump) Terry. The father was born in Rutherford County, N.C., February 14, 1784, and was the son of William Terry. Benjamin Terry emigrated from North Carolina to Missouri, settling in St. Louis County, in 1802. He was a farmer by occupation, and served in the War of 1812. In recognition of the service thus rendered he was given a land warrant for 160 acres of land in Missouri. He removed to Franklin County, in 1832, where he lived a long and useful life, his death occurring February 21, 1857. He was a member of the Baptist Church. The mother was born on the Cumberland River, in Kentucky, January 12, 1793, and was the daughter of Peter Jump, who was a native Kentuckian, and who removed to Missouri in the early part of the present century. She was a member of the Baptist Church, and died in Franklin County, March, 1864. To the parents eleven children were born, of whom our subject was the eighth. He was reared on the farm and acquired a limited education. He remained at home until August, 1864, when he enlisted in Company D, Forth—Seventh Missouri Regiment of Infantry of which he was color—bearer. He served until April, 1865, and was then mustered out at St. Louis. He returned to the farm in Franklin County, where he remained until his election, as A Republican, to the office of sheriff of Franklin County, in the fall of 1880, and then removed to Union. He was re—elected in 1882, and in 1884 was elected county collector. In 1886 he was re—elected collector, and holds that office at the present, discharging the duties in a faithful and efficient manner. January 1, 1857, he married Miss Elizabeth Boothe, a native of Iowa, born May 18, 1841, and the daughter of James Boothe. To this marriage three children have been born, one now living. Mrs. Terry died May 14, 1863, and in November, 1866, Mr. Terry took for his second wife Miss Mary A Link, a native of Franklin County, Mo., born December 7, 1841, and the daughter of Henry Link (deceased).

To this union nine children have been born, six now living. Mr. Terry is a member of the Baptist Church, and of Wilhelma Post. No. 344, G. A. R.; also a member of Union Lodge, No. 173, A. F. and A. M. His wife is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

This is unrelated to the above topic: I have been trying without much success to get ahold of South Carolina marriages but as those who know and are researching in this state there are no marriages recorded as there are bonds and such in other states. We therefore have to get marriages from Mr. Holcomb's books or other newspaper items, bibles, deeds wills, etc. etc. Could the membership help to send in this information.
