I spent an exciting evening recently with members, Mrs. William A. Payne
of Little Rock AR and Mrs. Shirley Castleman and spouse of Weatherford OK who
were in attendance at a BUTLER family reunion in OKC. Not only was the dinner
great but the after dinner Computing went into the wee hours. Mrs. Payne has
shared some Arkansas TERRY data with us and I am in the process of editing at
present. If you have any Arkansas obits, newspaper articles, pedigree charts,
cemetery records, marriages, wills, estates, memorabilia etc. etc. send them
Depending on the input this will be published early 1985. [I have 30 pages

It should be mentioned that I have in many cases received entire TERRY
family sheets and Pedigree Charts from members and please continue sending them
as they will be published eventually! HOWEVER, my floppies are limited in terms
of space so I am only putting pedigree charts in my ROOTS M data base file at
the present time and cannot chain files. There is also a space limitation in
the TFH as well.

For an explanation about the stuff you see in headings of the QUERIES
section. IF you see Member.nnn by your pedigree chart this means it is in my
files by this reference number. Those with Terry.nnn indicates it is a line
connected with myself. Perhaps someday soon I will receive the funds required
to purchase a hard disk with more storage and will begin to place more complete
family information in the data files.

Among the membership there is a growing number of computers and, hopeful-
ly, I will have purchased a telephone modem by the early part of 1985 and will
start a COMPUTERIZED TERRY BULLETIN BOARD so members can download and upload
TERRY data files, queries etc. Just imagine what Stephen Terry of 1887 could
have done with a computer. In fact, I am planning to do an update in 1987 to
commemorate "Notes of Terry Families in the US" by Stephen Terry (1887).

A few members have already renewed for 1985. We need your '85 renewal as
soon as you can get it to us so we can proceed with other TERRY projects. Your
mailing list will show your current expiration date.

FOR MEMBERS ONLY: The TFH would be an excellent Christmas gift to
friends, relatives, libraries. Until January 1, 1985, if you order back issues
or any other items with your 1985 subscription at the current price of $16.00,
I will give you a 25% discount on any other items for sale. If you have already
ordered your 1985 Subscription just deduct the 25% from any further orders you

I certainly appreciate all the contributions and could not operate without
the input from all of you. I am as always very far behind on correspondence.

Page 156

I am filing SASE's and if I get any input on your line will send it to you. I
am currently trying to devise a data format which allows for an automatic
printout of researchers with a given line of descent with addresses. It is a
slow process.

By the way, Merry X-mas from us OKIE TERRY's in November !#@%.

By the time this appears in the TFH, the holiday season will be upon us in
earnest with its annual gift lists, preparations, religious observances, and
other special events of the season.

At the time it is written, it is fall and the superb foliage of the tri-
state area surrounding Cincinnati has been among the most beautiful in memory.
Christmas advertisements and television commercials pre-dated the change in
coloring of the leaves and it looks like a long bombardment of readers and
viewers and listeners.

What I call the "begats" are most useful, of course, in tracing our
ancestors but I find myself treasuring the little stories and anecdotes about
relatives passed on by the elders of the family. These are worth recording as
an adjunct to genealogical information, which often resembles the "begats."

In early October, I took a distant cousin and her husband on a brief tour
of our mutual ancestor's places of residence, including the little cemetery in
which he rests. Our first meeting brought home the old contention that "blood
is thicker than water," which I had experienced several times in the past.

My distant cousin and I probably bored our spouses with our rehashing of
ancestral lore, exchanged by mail for years. They endured, however, with
patience and understanding.

I suspect that my cousin will not recall the "begats" part of her visit
nearly as vividly as she will recall a story told me by my father during
numerous Christmas seasons.

My father's grandparents apparently were early practitioners of child
psychology. They established a holiday custom that the first grandchild to
reach their home on Christmas morning would receive a special gift -- this in
the days before Cabbage Patch dolls, battery-powered toys, etc.

There were grandchildren in homes up and down the rural road from the
grandparents' home and the Christmas morning competition for the gift was
intense. Attempts to stay awake all night by the children usually resulted in
their over-sleeping and missing their chance.

Page 157

Making a long story short, I recall my father's pleasure in telling of the
year in which his mother awakened him at 6 a. m., fed him, bundled him up
against the cold, and set him out on his quarter-mile run to the grandparents'
home, where he claimed his gift.

I realize that genealogical information requires documentation, but I
intended to supplement my "begats" with the anecdotes and stories which make my
ancestors more human. Have Happy holidays!

* * * * *

ELISHA TERRY, living near Jonesboro, was born in Hot Springs county,
Arkansas, October 13, 1837, the son of Turner and Matilda (Bond) Terry. On the
8th of January, 1839, his father died, leaving two children, --Elisha and
George, the latter now lying in the carnage at Vicksburg, Mississippi. Later
the mother became the wife of James Wornick, and by that marriage there were
three children,--William D., Margaret and Ellen. His paternal grandfather, John
Terry, married Miss Fanny Gaddy, at Bedford Court House, Virginia. Richard
Bond, the maternal grandfather of our subject, who wedded Mary Baker, was a
North Carolinian by birth. On both side Mr. Terry is of Irish descent.

In 1847 he accompanied his parents to Union parish, Louisiana, where the
family continued to reside until May, 1852, when they emigrated to Texas,
locating in Leon county. At the age of twenty he began teaching, which
profession he followed eight months of the year until the outbreak of the civil
war; then, in 1861, he joined Company B, Twelfth Texas Calvary (Parsons'), and
served as chaplain for a limited time. Shortly before the close of the war he
resigned. He had a horror of shedding human blood and hence never actively bore
arms. His sympathies, however, were with the south, and he did all in his power
to administer to the spiritual welfare and alleviate the physical suffering of
the soldiers.

Returning to Leon county, Mr. Terry made his home there until August,
1868, when he removed to his present place in Hamilton county. Finding no
congregations here, the territory being large and sparsely settled, although
there had been a conference of the Methodist Protestant church for ten years,
he went to work to raise a congregation. He had no means but his labor and no
church funds to aid in the good work. Before the close of the year 1869 he was
enabled to organize Liberty church. Two years later he was elected president of
the district, which office, however, he was compelled to abandon before the
close of the second term, on account of physical exhaustion and meager support.
Thus, up to 1883, all the time that could be so spent was spent in any labor
the conference might require till the onerous duty of pastor of a weak church
and the care of a large family so overtaxed his powers of both body and mind
that he was forced to retire from the active ministry.

Our subject is more familiarly known as "Parson Terry." In 1859 he became
a member of the Methodist Protestant church, and a year later entered the work
of the ministry, preaching the gospel until 1883. During that time he estab-
lished Liberty church, four miles east of Jonesboro, one at Brown's creek in
Brown count, and still another in San Antonio, Texas, while he has assisted in

Page 160

the organization of many others. He has made a valiant fight for his church and
Master, and now, in his old age, has the pleasure of seeing some of the congre-
gations which he established in a flourishing condition. He is one of the
pioneer Methodist Protestant preachers of the state, and to the Master's work
he has devoted the best years of his life. He is a well read man, thoroughly
informed on the current events of the day, and has the esteem and confidence of
all who know him. Politically he is a conservative Democrat, and socially is a
Mason, having joined that order at Leona Union Lodge, No. 39, in 1865, and is a
charter member of Coryell Lodge, No. 442, at Jonesboro.

Mr. Terry remarks in addition to the above: "If the endowments of an
individual are such as claimed above, why not align himself with more power and
prestige in Christian work? I feel a respect for different bodies of Christians
that amounts to admiration,--a love that amounts to brotherhood. At the same
time I believe the genius of Christian teaching to be the requirement of
perfect equality among brethren, higher endowments among Christians enjoining
only more love, more humility and more work. I believe that Christians are
required to do all in their power to promote the welfare of the country in
which they live; hence I believe that all church officials should hold place
only by consent of the church. In a word, I believe that a man should stand to
his own sense of Christian duty at all hazards. Under these convictions I
joined the church I thought to be nearest in harmony with them, being a consti-
tutional republic of Christian people.

"When called upon to cast a ballot on the ordinance of secession I told
the officers that my mother had taught me to reverence my Bible and the
constitution of my country, and I should vote no ticket stained in blood, and
cast and open ballot against it--secession."

At the age of forty-seven years, namely, on the 25th of July, 1866, Mr.
Terry was united in marriage with Miss Asalie Hunt, who was born July 22, 1844,
the daughter of Noah and Ann (Rheinhart) Hunt. Mr. and Mrs. Terry have had the
following named children: George E., born in Leon county, Texas, July 30, 1867;
Turner H. born in Hamilton county, February 6, 1871; the next was a daughter
who died in infancy January 18, 1873; Mary Ida was born January 4, 1874; Rosa
A., October 13, 1876; Matilda Andora, January 10, 1879; Luther, March 9, 1881;
Olive M., July 13, 1884; Mary Clark, February 22, 1888; and William E., August
17, 1890. The last seven were born in Hamilton, Texas.

Shooting at Church:

Jealousy Costs One Life During Services

Special to the State.

Estill, April 10--When Jake Terry went to Goodwill church, two miles from town
yesterday and saw his girl sitting by Tack Fulton, he became jealous, returned
to town and secured his pistol, drove back to church and while the Lord's
Supper was being served, emptied his pistol into Tack, killing him instantly.
He then held the panic stricken congregation at bay, backed out of the church
and made his escape, only to be captured by a posse following him early this
morning after he had been wounded in an exchange of shots between himself and
members of the posse.

Terry Family of Robert "Bob" Rowan

5500 Newberry Lane

Knoxville, TN 37921

I found your name in "Roots Cellar" listing of the Genealogical Helper.
You listed a Rowland Terry, who died in 1824 and was in Granville, North
Carolina. There is a possibility we have some common kin. My Dad's mother was
Sampie Terry. My G G Grandfather was Roland Terry. The 1850 Census list him as
being born around 1797, in North Carolina. He was in Murphy , North Carolina
(Cherokee County). He was in McMinn County, Tennessee in the 1860 Census. His
age in that census would list him as being born in 1800. I will enclose a brief
list of my TERRY info.

However, I am curious about a brother my Grandmother had. His name was
William Matthew Terry. I knew him as Uncle Will. He left the McMinn-Monroe
County area of East Tennessee when he was quite young. For a span of about 30
to 40 years, he was not heard from. He then showed up at my Grandparents house.
After that he kept in touch with his family. He was then living in New Mexico.
My family went out to New Mexico in 1936 and lived in the same area he was in.
In fact, we spent one year living with him. He had a old hotel in a fast
becoming ghost town named Mt. Dora. It is now down to two families. It had a
school, grocery store, a couple of gas stations, patent medicine drug store and
was a flag stop for trains when we were there. Uncle Will died in 1940 and was
buried in Illmo, Missouri.

His obit listed only one son, William Thomas Terry of Illmo. He came to

Page 162

New Mexico at least once. Uncle Will's wife, Minnie Lane, was not William
Thomas' mother. His mother was Edith Rainwater. This was all of Uncle Wills'
family I knew until I received a picture album from my Dad's sister. As it
turns out, Uncle Will was married at least three times. His first wife and
family is where I thought you might come in. His first wife's name was Susan
Pace, who died in 1918 and is buried in Pollard?, Oklahoma. They had at least
four sons and one daughter. You will note on my list that son Calvin had one
son named Rolland and another named Bobby.

I have not found anything out about the Terry's before the 1850 Census in
Murphy, North Carolina.....I have some info on the ones that were in Monroe and
McMinn Counties.

304 Goodlettsville TN 37072

Letter to Mike Terry, Editor, February 22, 1983.

I am a descendant of Josiah Terry, born 1780, in Virginia. He came to
Scott County, Tennessee, with his brother, Elijah Terry, from Wayne County,
Kentucky, in about 1815. I have a good record of Josiah and Elijah and their

Page 163


I believe Josiah to be the oldest son of John Terry and Esther Brown. This
is the same John Terry that is covered by your book review "A Partial History
of William Terry and His Descendants 1724 -1981" in Volume 1, Number 3, by Mrs.
Lula Terry Elliott, 301 Pine St., Clayton NM 88415. I have a copy of the book,
and I am sending you a copy of a letter I wrote to Mrs. Elliott giving the
reasons I believe John to be the father of Josiah.

I have also written to Mrs. Raymond Wray, 1606 N. Willow Oak, Longview TX
75601, #171282, Page 147, Volume 1, Number 3. I believe her William and my
Josiah to be brothers and sons of Mrs. Elliott's John Terry. I am also enclos-
ing a family chart I have on Josiah and his children. Josiah was married twice.
First to Nancy Thomas. They had two sons, Joseph and William. James E. Terry,
142 Lyons Dr., Frankfort KY 40601, is a descendant of Joseph, and he has a good
record on both Joseph and William.

Josiah's second wife was Nancy Stevens and they had eleven children. The
family chart I am enclosing lists the information I have on those eleven

I have done extensive research on John and Josiah Terry in Virginia,
Tennessee, and Kentucky. I want to go to Indiana this summer to continue my
research. I will share any information I have with your readers and trust that
someone might have additional information to help me in my research.

Letter to Lula Terry Elliott. September 13, 1982

I have received your book this past Thursday, and I have read it every
day. It is very interesting, and is of great help to me in my research of the
Terry family.

It was interesting to find that several members of John Terry's family
were members of the Church of Christ. I am also a member of the Church of
Christ. My father and grandfather were members of the Church of Christ. Most of
the Terrys in Tennessee are Baptists. I wish to share with you my reasons to
believe that I am a descendant of John Terry. I would appreciate your comments
and suggestions for my research.

The dates all fit into place and, although there was more than one John
Terry in early Tennessee records, there is no conflict in the tax and census
records. There is a deed dated May 20, 1783, in Washington County, Tennessee
(then North Carolina) where John Terry sold a tract of land. This could or
could not be our John Terry. In 1793, John Terry bought land in Hawkins County,
Tennessee, and sold land in 1800 and 1801. Hawkins County was established in
1786. This is the county where Will Terry was born, according to the records
of Mrs. Raymond Wray. A John Terry can be found in the court records in
Grainger County, Tennessee, in 1799, 1800, 1801 and 1802. Grainger County was
established in 1796. There is a John Terry in Knox County, Tennessee, in 1800
and 1802, and in Anderson County, Tennessee, in 1803-1808. We know that this is
John Terry, son of William Terry. This is the first place I can find John Terry
and Josiah Terry together. They are both on the Anderson County tax list of
1805. I note that your book states that John Terry's brother, Miles Terry,
migrated to Anderson County with John. I have not found any record of Miles
Terry. Do you know anything about this family? We next find John Terry in Wayne

Page 164

County, Kentucky, in 1808, 1810, 1811, 1812 and 1813. On the Wayne County tax
list of 1808, John and Josiah are both listed as living on the South Fork of
the Cumberland River. The 1810 Wayne County census, as listed by the Kentucky
Historical Society, Frankfort, Kentucky, Page 362, lists both John and Josiah.

John Terry's family is listed as follows:

One (1) male, 45 and over - This would be John.
Three (3) males under 10 - This would be Elisha, Elias, and Miles.
One (1) male 10-16 - Probably John Jr., as listed by Mrs. Raymond Wray.
One (1) male 16-26 - Probably Will or Elijah.
One (1) female 26-45 - His wife, Esther.
One (1) female 10-16 - His daughter Esther.
In your book, you list the six (6) youngest children of John Terry and
Esther Brown. I have some suggestions on the older eight (8) children:

(1) Josiah Terry born circa 1780 in Virginia.
(2) Will Terry born 1785 in Hawkins County, Tennessee, as mentioned by
Mrs. Raymond Wray.
(3) John Terry Jr. born circa 1790 in Hawkins County, Tennessee, as
mentioned by Mrs. Raymond Wray.
(4) Elijah Terry born circa 1791 in Hawkins County, Tennessee - He settled
in Scott County, Tennessee, with his brother Josiah Terry. I have some
records on Elijah and I know he was Josiah's brother.
(5) Haden Terry - He is listed on the 1809 Wayne County, Kentucky, tax
list as over 21.
(6) George Frteton Terry - He is listed on the Wayne County, Kentucky, tax
list as over 21. This means he was born before 1788. They could both
be older children of John Terry.
(7) Jasper Terry - He is mentioned by Mrs. Raymond Wray. I know nothing
about him.
(8) Daniel Terry - He is listed on the Campbell County, Tennessee, tax
list of 1818 with Josiah, Elijah, and John. Scott County was formed
from Campbell County. I know this is my Josiah and his brother, Elijah
I believe this is their brother, John Terry Jr., as mentioned by Mrs.
Raymond Wray. I have no record of Daniel or John. Mrs. Wray told me
that John had a son, Thomas, who was born in Tennessee.

The record shows that all the Terrys were out of Wayne County, Kentucky,
by 1814. We know that John and his wife, Esther, with their small children went
to Perry County, Indiana. Mrs. Raymond Wray has a record on Will and John, Jr.
I know that Josiah and Elijah came to Tennessee. Since Daniel, Haden, and
George disappear from Tennessee and Kentucky records, I believe they might have
gone to Gibson County, Indiana, with Will and John. I am enclosing the records
I have on the Josiah Terry family. Please note the names are the same as many
in the John Terry family. Please let me hear from you and I will keep you
informed on anything new that I learn about the family.

I'd like to give you some background on my line of the Terrys so that you
might be able to advise me where to look or who I can contact that might help
me. We have only the name of my greatgreat grandfather and that he was born in

According to the 1870 Jack County, Texas Census as follows:


William Terry 65 yrs. MW TN
Flora Ann 29 yrs. FW TN
Aaron 9 yrs. MW TN
Louis 8 yrs. MW TN
Thomas 5 yrs. MW TN
Charles 3 yrs. MW TN
Joseph 3/12 (Mar)MW TN

According to marriage records of Jack County:

William Terry and Miss Flora Ann Terry married 27 Feb 1866, license re-
corded in Vol. 1, page 67.

As you can tell some one made a mistake when this was recorded because
Flora Ann was a Vanhoosers before she married, so either she was a widow of
another Terry or the clerk wrote her last name wrong and should have written
Vanhooser. I feel she could have been a Terry widow because if you notice the
first three children listed in the 1870 census were born prior to her marriage
to William. They are listed as Terrys and also William was at least 36 years
older than Flora Ann.

I don't know when William died, but in 1874 Flora Ann remarried to a Henry
Brown and then again to James Donely (I don't know when she married him.) I am
in the process of finding some relatives that possibly can give some
information about these marriages.

My great grandfather told my mother that his father came to Jack County in
1844. I have no proof of this, however, I have found a William Terry listed on
the lists of registered voters 28 Aug 1867. and on the tax rolls in 1859 and

The only sibling that my great grandfather mentioned that anyone can
remember was a sister that married and moved to Lawton, Oklahoma. Her name was
Parilee and she married E. D. Bandholtz 26 Aug 1888 in Jack County.

The Census of 1870 is wrong in several places, for example, Flora Ann was
born in Missouri (I think Candem, County) and I know that Charles (my great
grandfather) was born in Jack County, so I would assume that the child Joseph,
was born in Texas, also. My great grandfather told his children and
grandchildren that he left home when he was 9 and joined a cattle drive. He
also told them that from the time he was 3 until he was 9 he was raised by his
grandparents, Isaac and Sarah Vanhooser. Evidently, when he left at the age of
nine he didn't return to Jack County until his grandfather died in 1898 and
when his grandmother died in 1903. He married Ida Florence Smith in Parker
County, Texas in 1888.

As you can see, I don't have a lot of leads. That is the reason I thought
you might could help me. I thought you might have run across some of these
names doing your research.

John P. Beene was killed by Indians in Hamilton Co. Texas. He was a rancher in
Coryell Co. but had gone after some stock and renegade Indians killed him "and
Beene's negro" quoting Coryell Co. History by Scott.

The Wichita Library has a few books containing records of Mississippi and from
them I learned that Louvinia May Terry was a daughter of Curtis Terry. This
reference stated that Curtis Terry was born in Yalobusha Co. MS in 1784 and
that his wife died in 1849. It states that he died in 1859 and lists these
children: John; Granderson; Louvinia May; James; Emeline; Willis and Sally. The
census shows that Curtis Terry was born in North Carolina....Most of what I
have was given to me by members of the Moss Family and a little bit I found in
our library...the book I mentioned was Biographical Historical Memoirs of
Mississippi, page 607.

I have been wanting to pass the Terry information on to you for such a
long time. It seems our lives are filled to the brim each day and with five
children 8 to 18 I'm kept quite busy.

My brother found two TERRY Bibles in a house that was being torn down
several years ago in Lindenhurst, Long Island, New York where we are both from

He wants the Bibles because of the age but was willing to share the
information in them.

Bible #1 [Printer and Date torn out]

James Rider was born 22 Oct 1797.
James Rider and Elizabeth Terry was married 16 April 1831.
The name and age of Noah Terry. He was born 6 Jan 1787.
The name and age of Huloah?/Guloah? Terry. She was Born 28 February 1789.
The name and age of Daniel Terry. He was born 13 July 1791.
The name and age of Elizabeth Terry. She was born 21 Feb 1795.

Bible #2 [The New Testament - 1800 Printed and sold by Benjamin Gomey?, Book
Seller & Stationer, No. 97 Maiden Lane, NY NYC]

Daniel Terry born 2 Feb 1764 and drowned 19 March 1801 aged 37 yrs. Buried 29
Noah Terry his book January 1801.

It would be interesting to hear if this information has helped in any way.
The Bible did not say what town these people lived in, but we suspect out east
further on the Island, and were probably whalers. Again, I hoped it may have
tied in with other TERRY relatives.

[Editors Note: My TERRY cousins can really relate to the following letter,
the post-script I am sure has occurred more often than you think!]

MOSES GREEN BERRY HILL TERRY: Give that boy a real name!

Edited version of letter by Robert R. Hill

631 S. Echo Drive, Brandon FL 33511

I am about 3 to 4 years behind you and the other Terry's in your contacts
with Mr. Ray Beeman, but I am going to write to you anyway...asking you to over
look typing mistakes etc...I am just a hunt and peck typist....

I know several people have been researching the Terry family, and while my
main interest lies with the Hill Family, we are connected through the marriage
of Stephen Terry and his wife, Elizabeth Harrison Hill. She was the daughter of
Moses Hill & Savilla N. Roden of Fairfield District, S. C. Elizabeth was born
29th January 1793 and the marriage and death dates are well known among the

Through Mr. Beeman's efforts, I learned that a Mr. Carl B. Terry was
living right here in Tampa, and on 16th Oct 1984, I went and visited him. Mr.
Carl Terry was the son of Frank Terry, who was the son of George Washington
Terry. His parents were Stephen Terry and Elizabeth Hill Terry.

Mr. Carl B. Terry is 75 years old, but is in very bad health. He has had a
severe heart attack, and appears to have suffered a "stroke". He feels real
bad, and doesn't seem too interested in family research and lives alone.

Naturally, he was skeptical about talking with me, but after he realized I
was not "up to something" he kinda let go, and showed me a picture of George
Washington Terry (his grandfather), who was the youngest child of Stephen's and
Elizabeth Terry's children. He also gave me a copy of a Terry Bible record,
showing two other children that I have not seen on any Terry's list. The bible
record shows all 12 (Twelve) children that belonged to Stephen & Elizabeth Hill

They had a child (you might know this) named Benjamin Terry, who was born
14th day March 1813 on Friday. (Location was Lancaster District in S. C.) He
died 7th day April 1813 in Lancaster Dist. I did not know till then that they
were in Lancaster District...all rest were born in Chester District...S. C.
(Sandy River) until the son MOSES ANDREW TERRY was born...The bible record
shows his FULL NAME as MOSES ANDREW MCKEE TERRY born Saturday 2nd day of
December 1826-died in Georgia...blurred but can make out 15th District (maybe
DeKalb Co.) but can make out South River, really pins down when they went to
Georgia. Moses Terry born Sandy River, Chester District.

All of the children's birth gives location, date and even day of week.
Stephen's birth, Elizabeth Hill's birth and their marriage is given as is
Elizabeth's death (2 o'clock looks like P. M.) Monday 3 Dec 1838.

I gave these as I have not seen any of this data and did not know if you
had it.

Page 172

I plan on visiting with Mr. Carl B. Terry again...and from what I have
learned, it looks like Stephen Terry built the first large hotel in Atlanta,
and was a contractor with the railroad. His son George Washington Terry was in
charge of the old water works in Atlanta, and George Washington Terry married
Elizabeth Lanier. They moved to Tampa, Fla in the late 1880's.

George W. Terry and his wife are buried here in Tampa in the old Woodlawn
Cemetery...He died Jan of 1920 and they were married on 21st August 1855 in
Georgia. Both are buried here and I am going to get those dates later.

From my research on the Hill family, based on dates of birth, it would
seem that Elizabeth HARRISON Hill (dau of Moses Hill) was the 5th of 10 chil-
dren. I am related through the first child and her brother, THOMAS HILL m.
Jemima Woodward. (He was born 1780, James 1782, Sarah "Caroline?" ca. 1785,
Littleton ca. 1788, then Elizabeth 29th Jan 1793. Next Moses Berry Hill b.
1795, Harriet W. Hill m. Ed Picket Mobley, George Washington Hill b. 1803,
Rebecca Carlise b. 1807 m. Dr. John Trezevant deGraffenreid, and an obscured
daughter who apparently died very young named Nancy B. Hill (b. 1806). Now you
can see where some of those names came from...and the name of Green Berry Hill
(in the Terry family) really makes me feel that it is a strong attachment to
Moses Hill (probably his name Moses Green Berry Hill OR his father or grand-
father). We feel he came from Halifax County and thinking is his father was a
Thomas Hill, but no proof...This is what we are looking for. Can you provide
any light on this matter?

If you can I'd sure appreciate it...and will send you a copy of the Terry Bible
record given to me IF you don't have it OR you want it. Together, along with
the will of Stephen Terry, one can just about find out anything about their

Your help will certainly be appreciated, and I thought you and the Terry's
would like to know about Mr. Carl B. Terry. I have also been corresponding with
Mr. Beeman in California and he already knows of him and the situation.

Best wishes from the Hill's

Robert R. Hill Sr.

P.S...Mr. Carl B. Terry said his parents had a big fuss when he was
born...[Seems his] father wanted to name him Green Berry Hill Terry, but [his]
mother would not hear of it...(I don't blame her!)....

Later Notes 11/4/84:

On the enclosed Bible record, Mr. Terry does not know for sure, but feels it
was actually his Great grandfather's (Stephen Terry's) bible and that his son
(Mr. Terry's grandfather) George W. Terry took it and kept it...I do not know
anthing else about it though...but I'm sure glad to get it...

One other thing, Mr. Terry told me the name of Terry was originally from
Belgium and was spelled THERRY ...he did not go into it anymore...

Tell all the TERRY'S around the country about our connections and say "hello"
for me...

Page 173

EDITOR'S ADDENDUM: Please remember that Stephen Terry received the Negro girl
Sarah from his father-in-law, Moses Hill, in 1814. Moses Hill died in 1821 and
was a large land-holder in the Fairfield District SC area. Stephen Terry's
brother Benjamin also died ca. 1806 and his Uncle Benjamin Terry d. ca 1831.
Perhaps this explains some of the given names. The "Moses Andrew McKee" is a
puzzler! Mr. Hill is a descendant of Thomas Hill and Jemima Woodward the former
a sister of Elizabeth Harrison Hill.

This above was in date order as noted, however, some of the geographical
notations were written in the margin on the original. I have not added anything
to it. There were some torn edges which were unreadable but in some cases
Chester, Fairfield and So. River can be surmised. Each individual item is
outlined in a block as well as an outline at the edge of the page itself. The
"S" in "Stephen" looks very much like the handwriting of Major Stephen Terry
1788-1866 of Atlanta, GA. All of the handwriting appears to be by the same
person and very much like Stephens' which appears in several places on copies
of deeds and other documents in the editor's possession. It appears that this
may be a family record written by Stephen Terry himself. Mr. Carl Beach Terry
indicated he believes this is in fact the case.

Dear Mr. Beeman:

Received your letter (undated) mailed 6 June asking for information on my
Susannah Carruthers who married Benjamin Terry. That name Carruthers gets
spelled several ways according to the writer.

Susannah Carruthers married Benjamin Terry 5 August 1777--that was bond date,
rather. And bondsman was Francis Young (who married the sister Jane Caruthers.)

The girls were daughter of ______ Caruthers and Martha ______. You will find
the will of Martha Caruthers in Pauline Young's book, Abstracts of Old Ninety-
Six and Abbeville District Wills and Bonds. This book is from Southern Histor-
ical Press.

Susannah apparently died before the family moved from Guilford county, NC. That

Page 175

marriage info is from Guilford County, Marriage Bonds, Page 443, no book num-

Are you interested in Martha because she would be the mother-in-law of Benjamin
Terry? I never was able to go back on that line.

I know that Benjamin and Susannah had a daughter, Sarah. Sarah married (1)
Jeremiah Sealey Terry, son of John. They had a daughter Jane who married (1)
Dr. Joseph B. Gibert (2) Alexander Hunter...Sarah Terry, wife of Jeremiah later
married Josiah Patterson.

I would like to know something about the man Martha married, named Caruthers.
Have not located that information.

Hope this is of some use to you. I suppose you are acquainted with Robert
Terry, Box 1531, Enid OK 73702. He puts out a Terry letter.

"Among the estimable citizen of Oakland Co. none rank higher than does
Albert Terry. His father’s family were natives of Berkshire Co., Mass. from
whence they emigrated to Livingston Co., N.Y. in the early part of the 19th
century. The subject of our sketch was the oldest of a family of fourteen
children, equally divided between the two sexes. He was born in Lima, Living-
ston Co., N.Y. September 10, 1817 where he received a good common school
education and taught school for a time previous to his majority, When he
arrived at the important period of a young man’s life (Oct. 1838) he came to
Michigan with no means of moment and spent three months in Macomb County and
then returned to New York, and in April following (1839) with his father’s
family came back to Michigan and purchased the northeast quarter of section 33
in the township of Avon, on which he now resides. In October 1639, he returned
to New York and brought from thence to his western home an estimable lady as
his wife, Miss Delia Lathrop. To his first purchase Mr. Terry subsequently added
132 acres, his farm now comprising 192 acres and is one of the best farms in the
township. From a wild, unbroken tract he has brought it up to a most excellent-
ly tilled and cultivated farm.

In politics, Mr. Terry is a democrat and one of the most convincing proofs
of his ability and integrity an the high esteem in which he is held by his
townsmen is the fact that for fourteen years continuously, from 1862—1876 he
has been chosen to fill the office of supervisor of his township though the
people are largely opposed to him in political sentiment, the township being
Republican the entire period.

Mrs. Terry bore to him seven children and died in 1859.

In 1660, Mr. Terry brought to his home another companion, Miss Lucina
Richardson, daughter of Isaac Richardson, formerly of Pontiac She was born in
August 1837 in the town of Howard, Kent County, province of Ontario, Dominion
of Canada.

By steady and persevering industry, correct habits and straight upright-
ness, Mr. Terry has gained a competency, which he is now enjoying in his old
age, cheered and pleased by the richly merited regard of his neighbors and
fellow citizens. We present to our readers a view of the old homestead of Mr.
Terry and also portraits of himself and his worthy helpmeet on another page of
our work."

"This dreamy old village is one at the oldest places in the county, made
immortal by Capt. Jonathan Terry, who was the first permanent settler in 1787,
and who founded the place. It is said that Benjamin Budd built a cabin here as
early as 1774.

Stephen Durell had built a cabin in 1786 near the mouth of Steam Mill

Israel Parshall, Major John Horton, Lebuis Garner, Parshall and Jonathan
Terry, all of these with their wives were in Forty Fort the night after the
battle..Jonathan Terry was commissioned a justice, and for four generations,
with but slight intermission, the office passed from father to son, Jonathan
Terry had 8 sons and 2 daughters. His son Uriah was the first white child born
in Terrytown, where he lived for nearly 90 years.

About 1794 Parshall Terry built a small grist mill on the small stream
passing through a farm occupied by J. W. Van Anken. Parshall and Uriah Terry
were for many years the noted men of Terrytown. Parshall was a tailor and made
very good coats for a dollar each. He was once jailed by the Pennamites, but
escaped to the woods.

Uriah Terry was a schoolmaster and a poet of no mean ability."

Stone Twp. Bradford Co. Pa. Parents were John and Catherine Betts Terry. John
Terry was born near Leeds. England 1805 ca. He migrated to Bradford Co., Pa

My great grand father her, Peter Garland Terry was born in North Carolina
in January 7, 1806. I would like to find proof of his county or town of birth.
I am searching for proof of his parents. He married Martha W. Akin in Wilson
Co. TN 21 May 1830 and shortly after the birth of son James, the family moved
to IL and first settled at Maysville, IL and later at Olney, IL. His second
wife was Martha Thompson. The children of Peter Garland Terry were: James,
Garland, William, John, Peter [my grandfather] and twin Charles, Alfred and
Rosella. I shall be happy to correspond and exchange information with others
who are searching for their TERRY ancestors.


I have an ancestor named Margaret Pearce/Peirce. She was born 1791—93 in New
Castle Co. DE, just south of Chester Co. PA. She married Joseph Wickersham of
Chester Co. in 1816. He was a Quaker; she was not. I have his line traced. I
have searched for hers for years without success.

Recently, an elderly relative said that her parents were Wilber and Terry
Pearce. She further stated that her grandfather was a Harry.

At that period, the name, probably was taken from her mother’s or grandmother’s

Do you know any Terry families who were in that area at that time? Or any who
might have come from Bucks Co. PA or NJ (upper Freehold or Shrewsbury, probab—
ly. ).. . They could also have been associated with Parkers, Bailys or Hollestons.

I am interested in the Terry name because I’m trying to trace William P. Terry,
b. October 1856 in PA. He m. Duncan Township, Mercer Co. IL 25 Jul 1880 Sarah
Permelia Doty Sade b. OH Dec 1853. I wonder if you have this family listed?
William P. was the son of William J. Terry and Mary Ann Wilson. I found the
family on the 1900 Soundex in Millersburg township, Mercer Co. IL. But the
1910 census indicates that William P. Terry, 17, a brother, is living in the
home of Oral S. Sade. They were half brothers, Oral Sade’s mother was Sarah
Permelia Sade Terry. But the 1910 Soundex says that William P. Terry, 80,
is enumerated with Oral Sade I’ 11 have to recheck this one. The 1900 census
Soundex lists William T. Terry as the son of William P. Terry and Sarah P. I
have also read some in the Early Reorganization Minutes (Reorganized Church of
the Latter Day Saints), and find this couple’s names menti ioned a number of
times. One of the biggest problems is the fact that there are so many William
Terrys in Mercer Co. IL. Any help appreciated. Betty Jane Goold, 412 North Plum
St., Northfield MN 55057.


I am Involved in researching the maternal ancestors of my mother, Alice M.
(Talbot) Thompson. Specifically, at this time, the ancestors and descendants of
my ggg grandfather Dr. William Terry, M. P. for Niagara—on—the Lake, Ontario
Canada. I have no birth date or date of death, but I do know that his wife was
Mary Metcalf 1780—1865, who died in Strothray, Canada. Also known is that they
had two children. Dr. Simcoe John Terry M. D. who married Eliza Talbot, in
London, in 1829, and later lived in Lambton. Harriot Terry born July 18, 1806 at
Niagara married Timothy Cook at Niagara May 26, 1831. Then lived in Strothroy
sometime around 1841. Her mother, Mary Metcalf Terry died perhaps at her home
in 1865 I believe her father, Dr. Terry, also died there prior to 1865, but
have no verification. I have searched records at Niagara—on—the Lake, London,
and Strothroy without success other than I have stated here. However, this
information indicates that Dr. Terry was born sometime prior to 1780. so of
course, this leaves me searching for his parents names, place and date of birth
and any other ancestors. I do not think he was united Empire Loyalist a he is
unlisted. I do however, think he was with the military at Port George Niagara—
on—the Lake and that he may have been M. P. during the time of Colonel John
Simcoe, Lieut. Governor, This could account for the name of his Son, Dr. Simcoe
John Terry. Most of those old records have been destroyed, many by the American
forces during the war of 1812, or so I have been told. Any information you can
furnish will be most helpful. Donald F. Thompson 856 L Torch Lake Dr., Rt. 2,

Our Terrys are traced as far back as John and Osee. He was born in NJ and she
in PA. We have the line from the time they were in OH in the early 1800s, but
have done no research in NJ or PA. Family tradition says we are descendants of
the early JOHN TERRY who was born 1603, England, and who migrated to
Dorchester, MA in 1635. But we can’t prove this from our rather limited study.

The first two copies of "The Terry Family Historian" arrived yesterday. On page
81 of Volume 3, Number I there is an article about W. E. Terry that made bells
ring. I just know that he is our Minnie May Terry’s brother. I have copied the
article and am sending it to Don’s aunt to see if she agrees. She is the only
living relative we have who knew the Terrys. Now I can see why I haven’t been
able to find any information. I was looking for William Terry and the father is
Charles. That makes sense because Minnie May named one of her sons Charles.
I’ll go back to the 1850 census again and see if I can find a Terry family with
a son Charles. Would you change William to Charles on the information I sent
you? NOTE: See her line query # 180984 Sep 1984 TFH. Mrs. Janet Reid, 13863

421284 TERRY

I have enjoyed your articles in the TERRY FAMILY HISTORIAN There is one error,
however, in the issue of March, 1984, and I did want to bring it to your
attention, as I knew that genealogists want the data they have to be correct.

You refer to Dr. Luther Terry as the former head of the American Medical
Association. Dr. Tarry did not hold a position such as this. Instead, he was
Surgeon General of the United States Public Health Service. This is a federal
position and he was the Chief Executive Officer of the United States Public
Health Service. Dr. Terry was a most distinguished Surgeon General and we are
all better off because of his service. Donald F. Terry, M.D., F.A.C.P.,
F.A.C.C. 4500 Nassau, Wichita Falls TX 76308. Editor’s Note. This was a
response to Robert W. Terry’s s "Covering the Terry—Tory" in the March-84 TFH.


My great—grandfather on my mothher’s side m. Thomas Henry Terry, born Dec.
1865. According to census reports he was born in Arkansas, however, I know he
had relatives somewhere in Oklahoma whom he visited regularly. On June 8, 1894,
my grandfather, Thomas Lee Terry was born at Morrilton, Arkansas while they
were enroute back home to Phillips County, Ark. coming from Oklahoma. On Oct
20 1895, their second son, Albert Alonzo Terry was born in Oklahoma while they
were visiting there. They had a total of 12 children and lived and died around
Phillips and Monroe Counties Arkansas. Thomas Henry’s wife was Mary Elizabeth
Ray, born Jan 1872 in Miss. I have been working on "Holcomb" research and have
not done much on my maternal side of the family but if any of your readers can.
