INTEREST IN TERRY FAMILY HISTORIAN
FROM CONTEMPORARY ENGLISHMAN
Just though I would share a letter with all that excites me greatly. -- The Editor.

7th November 1987
At a recent meeting of the Wiltshire Family History Society, of which I am a member, I came across a back issue* of the Journal of the Florida Genealogical Society which contained a reference to a publication called 'THE TERRY FAMILY HISTORIAN'.
Being a TERRY I am very interested to know if it still exists and if back numbers are available.
In fact I would be pleased know anything about the group or society that publishes it.

TERRY RELATIONS OF GRANVILLE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA:
by Jay Terry 224 Woodland Dr. Orem UT 84058
*** DISCLAIMER ***
Mike, as I undertake to start the project we discussed, I feel a need to make some preliminary comments for publication with this submission.
First, as one researches in Granville County, North Carolina, it becomes apparent that the records are not complete and much of what is there has been recopied. Thus
the clarification of errors and deletions will probably remain lost to the researcher as the originals are not extant.
Second, as one who has read and used various private publications referencing the Granville County records, I have experienced many mistakes in such publications and long ago decided to review quotes I was interested in. This has paid off many times in corrected quotes and the discovery of missing and/or additional names and information. Especially one needs to read the original when an author abridges the information. Many times what was important to me was ignored by the one doing the compiling.
Third, I have been reluctant to publish my research on Granville County because of the "gospel truth" people tend to place on publications. "If one sees it in print, then it has to be true," is an attitude that prevails with too many searchers. Far too many lineages are constructed of wrong information extracted from second-hand source records. My advise is, seek to review the original source yourself if the source does not provide a complete reproduction of the quoted document.
Thus Mike, I begin this project with reservations. For fear the reader will take what follows as "gospel" -- search and view the records for yourself is my admonition. True, I have spent years going over and over many of these same documents hoping to tie things together in a more positive way. However, I have finally come to the conclusion that positive ties are not possible at this time. The only usable conclusion now will be based on the mutual agreement of all those who have researched, studied, and compared Granville County records.
To date I know only a few individuals who have been able to seriously research Granville County records. Of those, none have strongly disagreed with what I have concluded and those who differ with minor points have not changed the major ideas.
The problem in Granville is, too many sons -- James`, Johns, Williams, Stephens, and not enough proof to establish who the father/s are. Records exist that clearly reveal father and son relationships. However, because there are so many children with the above given names, and with little recorded to define exact family relationships, this has caused much guess work in the past and has generated some differing family definitions by researchers.
Granville County was established in 1749 from Edgecombe County and the earliest document listing persons is a 1755
tax list. No Terrys are included on that list. There are early deeds that refer to Terrys in the 1760s.
The next tax list to survive is the 1767. This list reveals the presence of (assuming they lived there), James Terry and son William, Joseph Mintor (Mintors married Terrys), and Rowland Terry as searcher. A deed in book N, page 63, dated 3 May 1791 refers to the fact that a James Terry lived on land in Granville as early as 1766. "...land to James Terry and Nicholas Burch...where on they (Terry and Burch) have lived more than twenty-five years." This deed was written in 1791 and if one subtracts the 25 years from that date, the result is 1766.
This is important because in 1832 James Terry (born 1758) of Tar River District submits his Revolutionary War Pension Application and states his father (not named) came to Granville County in 1765 from King William County, Virginia. Thus one can conclude that the James of Tar River was in Granville in 1765 and his father settled (bought) land with Nicholas Burch in 1766.
The tax lists for Granville are fairly complete from around 1780 on. Years are missing here and there and names are not consistently enumerated every year. Yet, there is enough consistency to tell what families were in the area on an ongoing basis and some speculation is possible with respect to older sons. (Note: It is necessary that one understands the taxing procedure in North Carolina at this time and is aware of the age changes occurring every so often--see NORTH CAROLINA RESEARCH GENEALOGY AND LOCAL HISTORY by Leary and Stirewalt, 1980.) If one does not understand such, the use of tax records will just "muddy the water" more.
There is sufficient evidence from the tax lists to define the families that stayed in the county when another source is confusing. For example, in 1800 the U.S. census reveals a duplication of the James Terry and Gideon Gooch families. There is a James Terry family, a Mary Gooch and a Gideon Gooch family in both the Island Creek and Abram Plains districts. Yet in checking the tax list for 1800 one clearly sees there was only one James Terry, one Mary Gooch and one Gideon Gooch families. The problem? Abram Plains district had a boundary change and obviously different enumerators at different times, took the count for these families. There is a slight variation in the head counts which causes one to believe the visits were probably months apart. The writer has experienced this problem of enumerators straying out of their district boundaries many times in later U.S. census filings and double counts of households is not uncommon.
It has been the experience of this writer that when a
deed, census, etc., does not make sense, a check of the tax lists, if available, will provide a clearer picture. It seems that much more attention was provided tax collecting and the need to keep track of all tax collecting potentials -- not much different from today.
The August 9, 1786 State Census for Granville lists the following Terrys: Roland, James Sr., James Jr. and two Stephens. There is a listing for a John Tery. This John married a Mary Gomen (Gomer) in 1784. The bondsmen were William Gomen and John Gomen. In 1786 John and Mary sell land that belonged to John's father William. If one reads this deed carefully, it will be noted that the name is Ferry. Likewise, when the father, William purchased the land in July of 1761 it is clearly Ferry in the deed and in the index. Even later in Caswell County, North Carolina, John and Mary are clearly recorded as Ferry and the above two bondsmen, William Gomer and John Gomer too are located in those records. It is true that there are persons who claim this name was in error from Virginia to North Carolina, yet the interaction that was usual with families was not evidenced with this John Ferry (Tery). The writer became suspicious of this 1786 census entry when the name was spelled Tery, showing a distinct difference from the other Terrys. It is believed by him that the spelling was Fery and was transcribed incorrectly by those compiling the forms for printing. Many later publications have miss-quoted this name due to the lack of reading the original records.
Back to others of the 1786 census: We know that James Terry and Roland (Rowland) Terry received land from their father Stephen Terry of St. Martins Parish, Hanover County, Virginia. This is clearly recorded in Deed Bk F, pages 222- 223, in Granville County.
A Granville deed in 1769 (Deed Bk K, page 112) shows that the son James sold the land he bought from his father for $1, and it appears he never lived in Granville, but stayed on his land in Louisa County, Virginia. This fact is accepted by all researchers this writer has worked with who descend from this James Terry of Louisa County, Virginia. Therefore, the James Terry who bought land in Granville County in 1766 (see above) is not a brother to Rowland. Deed records also reveal that Rowland did come to Granville and settled the land his father sold him and James. Shortly Rowland sold his acreage to the same person his brother James of Virginia had sold his parcel to and bought other land in the area. The point is this, the writer sees, in 1786, James Terry Sr., from King William County, Virginia, James Terry Jr. who had married Sarah Thorp in 1780 and moved to the Tar River area with the Thorps (this is the James Terry who submitted the Rev. War Pension request above), thus making James Sr. and James Jr. father and son, and Rowland Terry, probably some relation, but not a son to
James Sr. The will of James Sr, probated in 1799 bears this out. Later I will discuss that will and the two Stephens listed in the state 1786 and U.S. 1790 censuses.
A look at the Granville marriage bonds shows: James married Sarah Thorp, 05 April 1780; Stephen married Anny Clement 04 Feb 1783 and; Stephen married Elizabeth Barnett 07 Mar 1785. Note that all the marriages are before the 1786 State Census. In the 1790 tax list (the 1790 census is lost), these individuals remain the same with James Sr. and Rowland and one Stephen in Island Creek District, James Jr. in Tar River District and one Stephen in Knap of Leeds (Reeds) District among the Clements. The writer feels this Stephen of the Knap of Reeds District is the one that married Ann Clement. Stephen Terry and Obediah Clement apparently were very close, at least the two families were. Obediah Clement appears to have married Sarah Terry, sister to Stephen and both families moved in late 1790s to Edgefield County, South Carolina.
James Terry Sr., (it is believed by many that this James married an Elizabeth Gooch; see the will of John Gooch, Granville County, Nov. Court, 1793), left a will written 1797 and proved in the Feb. Court, 1799. He lists his children (no wife mentioned, probably deceased), as follows: William (some researchers believe this is the "son" William listed on the 1767 tax list (see above) who appears to have married Sarah Minter; Stephen (who the writer believes married Ann Clement); James (Jr.) who married Sarah Thorp; John who appears to have married Anna Maria Minter; Sarah Clement (mentioned above); Mary Strom who married 1st, John Mintor and 2nd, William Strom; Elizabeth Childs (who married Nathan Childs and died before 1799) and; Joseph Gooch Minter, a grandson, son of Mary Strom.
There has much discussion and lack of agreement regarding this family and where they all ended up. But for those who have spent time in the Edgefield County, South Carolina records, it strongly appears that William, Stephen, John, Sarah (Clement) and Mary (Strom) went to that area as deed records, wills, probates, tax records, etc., have many references to all these respective given names and surnames. In addition, Clement researchers have never denied the fact that the Terrys and Clements in this South Carolina county are from Granville county.
The point here is that one can account for all of James Sr.'s family. As his son James stayed in Tar River area and died there in 1849, the rest of the children listed in the will appear to be relocated in the Edgefield County, South Carolina area.
This brings us to the question of the 1786 State Census
again. If all of James Sr.'s children were married by the census date, then who are those enumerated in the household? This question has plagued the writer for years. It has been the question that has caused him to hesitate placing his James Terry with a father. However, it has become necessary to assume that the head count in James Senior's family must include a married child and family -- anyone else have another idea?
Back to the 1790 census (tax list) and the two Stephens. You will remember from above that two Stephens married before 1786. One the author labels as the son of James Sr. and married Ann Clement. The other should be the son of Rowland and married Elizabeth Barnett. However, the writer has tried to track this Stephen and has had little success -- anyone have a suggestion?
Rowland Terry left a will written in 1819 and was proved in the Granville County Feb. Court of 1824. This will is strangely written. Read it carefully to see what is meant by that comment. He claims to have given his son Stephen 100 acres of land previous to the will -- Rowland sold the land Stephen lived on in 1805 -- did he give him a new plot? Curtis is said to "come in" for his child's share. All researchers know Curtis was in Central Tennessee by 1819 and most likely was in Giles County, Tennessee. It is also interesting that at the sale of the estate, only a Thomas Terry, Rowland Terry Jr. and Godfrey Aiken bought items. It being the usual thing to see all family members involved in such an event, one asks, where was Curtis, James, John, William and Henry Johnson? Was the Thomas Terry, executor, a "friend" only as stated or was he a distant relative? Also, where was the son Stephen at this time? Then to compound the problem, one of the two executors, Joseph G. Norwood, apparently did not register the papers relating to the disbursement of the monies to the heirs and in 1832 when Norwood died, the court appointed a committee to audit his records to satisfy the closing of the Terry probate and the committee did not bring in the papers (if they existed), and the settlement record is only the sworn statement by the committee that the act of settlement was accomplished -- no proof documents! Thus, where Rowland's children were living at that time has been the key to many researchers trying to place father to son.
One at this point may ask, what is the writer trying to prove? Simply this -- he descends from the James Terry who married Mary Gooch and removed about 1814/15 to Jackson County, Tennessee from Granville County. The father of Mary, Gideon Gooch is well documented in Granville records, but too many possibilities exist for James' father. Researchers believe James was born about 1770, thus on the 1786 State Census, he could be the son of Rowland, James Sr., or of one of James Sr.'s sons if such is enumerated in the household
with James Sr.
Nothing has ever been located naming his father. The courthouse burned at Jackson County, Tennessee and if any settlement records referring to North Carolina were there they were lost. So a monumental effort has been made to track the sons of each father to try to eliminate or prove the possibilities. Extensive reading and comparing has been done to make use of all that can be located in Granville. This has included comparing of signature marks (see book by Woodford Terry), bondsman/men on marriage bonds, location of land by deeds, etc., etc.
The writer has had to conclude the following: If Rowland's sons followed the norm prior to the father's writing his will, then Stephen who lived in Island Creek in the early census' was his first son and stayed close to his father in the early years of marriage. Curtis stayed until he received a part of his father-in-law's estate, then he headed west. Thomas has not been tracked well enough to make comment. James stayed too until he received a portion of his father-in-laws estate and shortly followed his brother Curtis, or they may have gone together. John, who the writer's James was bondsman for his marriage, also received part of his father-in-law's estate and shortly there-after removed west. Rowland Jr., by 1840 too was in Jackson County, Tennessee and by 1850 has his brother William living with him.
Now the "norm" is this -- brothers tended to move either together or to the same areas. They were bondsmen for each other (i.e., James for Curtis and John), and brothers tended to marry sisters from another family. Usually, marriages were between families that lived in close proximity and generally those who had been around for a time. Thus, four of Rowland's children married children of Gideon Gooch who was a close neighbor for at least two and a half decades before marrying age. In addition, it appears that five and maybe more of the children were together or very close in Tennessee at some time.
The writer's conclusion, at this time, places his James as the son of Rowland. This is however, open to proof that may in time change such a belief. Sitting beside the writer, as this is concluded, rests a file cabinet filled with Granville County records. All are copies of originals, or hand copied. None-the-less, with all this he remains open to the fact that somewhere, sometime, a researcher may come upon an item that will disprove all this theory. If so, well and good! He welcomes the day when all doubt is erased! And he is sure that others would also welcome such a find.
Only a very small portion of the documents searched have been quoted in the foregoing. The writer is aware that
there are some who will read this and take opposition to the conclusions. I would be interested in different views and conclusions. Assured at this time that a totally correct answer is not possible, I feel the sharing of thoughts and bits of documentation, etc., will in time probably piece this thing together.
Thanks to Mike, the TFH editor for the opportunity to submit these thoughts. How about articles from other readers to establish an on-going "readers submit" section each month?

by Robert J. Terry P. O. Box 859 Leland MS 38756
Joseph Minter Terry (b. 1799 - d. 1862 came to Mississippi in 1836 from Edgefield Courthouse South Carolina, today known as Edgefield, South Carolina. In a letter to two of his daughters in Edgefield he wrote of his trip to Mississippi and the purchase of lands in Hinds County. He bought 17,000 acres at a cost of 50 cents an acre and set about developing a large farming operation and establishment of a store named Line Store. The store also became a stage coach stop. The original Line Store ledger and the Terry Family Bible are still in the possession of a family member.
Joseph M. Terry's son; William David Terry, had the honor of having the town of Terry named for him. It was incorporated in 1867. The plantation of one of Mississippi's most outstanding governors, Albert Gallatin Brown, was near Terry and the families were life long friends.
One of William David's sons, William Dodd Terry, joined a number of former Terry residents in the swamplands of the Delta in about 1895. The Dossett and Tribbett Cassity families had moved to the Beulah area of Bolivar County earlier and developed farmlands, mercantile businesses and Mr. Cassity organized the Bank of Beulah in 1907. The bank premises were moved several years ago to Rosedale and renamed First National Bank of Rosedale. W. D. Terry went into the mercantile business at Beulah. His home is one of the few still standing there. Beulah was once a thriving little community boasting the afternoon train called the "Peavine." Today, like so many little Delta towns of yesterday, it is nearly deserted -- a very sad thing indeed.
William Dodd Terry was married twice. His first wife was Virginia Lee Boswell of Brookhaven, Mississippi, who
died young. Their only surviving child was Carrie Burnet Terry, who married Thomas Caleb Hannah of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. She was very active in all worthwhile civic projects for over 40 years. She was known for her interest in historical societies and was one of the state organizers of the "Daughters of the American Colonists" (1607-1776).
His second wife was the younger sister of Virginia Lee. Her name was "Leo" Lightner Boswell. The had one son, Robert Cunningham Terry. Carrie and Robert's maternal grandparents were Dr. and Mrs. John Jay Boswell, she being the former Amanda Swepson Sims of Athens, Georgia. They moved to Mississippi from Columbus, Georgia following the Civil War. He practiced medicine in Brookhaven until his death in 1870. Mrs. Boswell lived on for 50 years after his death reaching the age of 102. She died in 1920.
Robert Cunningham Terry entered the cotton business in Greenwood, Mississippi as a buyer for Newburger Cotton Company of Memphis, Tennessee. While in Greenwood, he married Miss Mary Katherine (Katie) Schweikert of "Silent Shade Plantation" near Cruger, Mississippi in Holmes County. He moved his cotton business to Ruleville about 1910.
"Katie" Schweikert was the daughter of Joseph Schweikert and his wife, Carrie Mae Barkhau. The Barkhau family had moved to Mississippi Delta from St. Joseph, Louisiana in the latter half of the 1800's. They purchased lands on the Yazoo River near Cruger, Mississippi and farmed for many years. Joseph Schweikert continued to farm "Silent Shade" during his lifetime and added several plantations to the original land. The Yazoo River was then navigable and steamboats passed in the front of the old Barkhau home. They brought mail, supplies and often visitors -- and lots of happiness for the many children in the family.
Robert and Katie Terry had three children, "Leo" Carolyn, Mary Amanda and Robert Joseph. Mary Amanda died at the age of 19 months in 1913 due to the dread Delta disease, malaria.
R. C. Terry of Ruleville moved to Leland in 1932 where he established the Terry Cotton Company. He enjoyed a large business connection and over the years his company grew to be one of the successful firms in this area. His untimely death at the age of 54 in 1939 brought an end to this well known local business.
"Leo" Carolyn Terry married John W. Weilenman, Sr. in 1933. They farmed large holdings at Stoneville for many years. He passed away in 1962 and she in 1985. They have one son, John W. Weilenman, Jr., known to friends and family as "Johnny." He married Le'Laine Smith of Leland and they have children, Mary Amanda and John, III. "Johnny" is well known
for his interest in competitive pistol shooting and has won the State Championship in 1984 and 1985. He is a Registered Surveyor and land owner.
Robert Terry, also known to friends as "Bob" graduated from Leland High School in 1934. He was active in student organizations and won the Rotary Award. In the fall of 1934, he entered Davidson College, Davidson, North Carolina. He graduated June, 1938 with a BS Degree in Economics. He entered the life insurance business with Jefferson Standard at High Point, North Carolina. He was active in the Life Underwriters' movement in North Carolina and helped organized the High Point life Underwriters's Association of that city. He was elected president of the association in 1941. He was also very active in civic, religious and social life of High Point.
In March of 1942, he entered the Army and was sent to Camp Chaffee, Arkansas where he was assigned to the 6th Armored Division. In 1944, he was sent with a group to Italy, joined the 755 Tk. Bn. and spent the rest of his overseas duty in Italy. He received a Battlefield Citation from 755 Tk. Bn. and later awarded the Bronze Star Medal.
After World War II, "Bob" returned to his native State and opened his own office with Jefferson Standard in the same office that his dad had used in his cotton business, 116 East Third Street. He has been active in all organizations that have been a part of the development and growth of Washington county and Leland since World War II. He is proud of his 40 years as a Lion's Club member in Leland and Greenville. Bob believes in the possibilities of this fine little Delta community and in the spirit of its citizens. He lives at 609 East Third Street, the Terry home since 1932.

WHO WAS JOSEPH TERRY THAT DIED IN MISSISSIPPI 1847?
Marge Brown 3005 Phyllmar Place Oakton VA 22124
In the September issue, 1982 of the Terry Family Historian page 96, appeared the following query (which I enclose a copy). In the body of the query is this note: Joseph R. Terry b. 1792, son of Nathaniel and Ann Thompson Terry was father of my grandmother Martha Ann Terry b. 1834
who married Lampkin S. Terry b. 1828 Virginia. This Joseph R. died in 1847, as recorded in our family Bible.
I do not know the querist descent but I submit proof that it was not through Joseph R. son of Nathaniel and Ann Thompson Terry, for their son Joseph is found throughout the records of Todd and Logan Counties, Kentucky. He is executor of his father's will in 1837, I find other instruments of deeds, promissory notes etc., continually in the 1830's to the 1870's until Joseph R. Terry's death in 1877. He married 2nd Bethenia Phelps in Cumberland County Kentucky 1 Jul 1850. He is found in Kentucky censuses 1850, 1860 and 1870.
In 1871, he applied for a pension for the War of 1812. It was granted. At his death in 1877, his widow Bethenia applied for a widows pension, it too was granted after submission of a deposition from a provable sister of Joseph R. Terry, Mrs. Lucy Terry Terry Chastain and her husband John Chastain. At her death, Mrs. Ann Thompson Terry was residing with Lucy and John Chastain.

NOTES ON THE LINE OF MARTHA ANN TERRY
Mike Terry, Editor Box 1661 Sapulpa OK 74067
According to TERRY FAMILIES OF VIRGINIA AND ELSEWHERE by Lina Terry McIlwain published by Lina Terry McIlwain, 33 Village Green Cir., Jackson MS 39211, page 22, the following is stated:
"Martha Ann Terry b. 28 Sep 1834 AL d. 11 Sep 1897 Attala Co. MS (Dau. of Joseph R. Terry b. 17 May 1792 and Sarah David Smith) m. 13 Jun 1849 Lampkin Straughn Terry, her cousin b. 23 Jan 1828 King William Co. VA d. 12 Aug 1893 MS."
Further research indicates:
Lampkin S. Terry received a pension for the Mexican War #14471. Lampkin S. Terry died the "12th day of August 1893" and his widow [Martha A. Terry] filed an application for accrued pension (widows) the 26th Day of October 1893.
She says in her application "she was married to the said Lampkin S. Terry the 13th day of June 1849 at her parents home in the state of Mississippi". Her residence was given as Attala Co. Mississippi and her post office as Kosciusko.
In a declaration of widow for pension the 29th of December 1893, Mrs. Martha A. Terry indicated ...."she married under my name of Martha A. Terry to my said husband, by Paul Engle a justice of the Peace on or about the 13th day of June, A.D. 1849 at the residence of Mrs. Lavina Terry in the state of Mississippi." Martha A. Terry further stated "I am 59 years of age, and that I was born on or about the 28th day of Sept., A.D. 1834, at my fathers house in the State of Alabama."
Other researchers note Joseph Royal Terry was not a resident of Alabama, as he has many records in Kentucky at that time, and he never married a Lavina.
It appears from the review of documentation received in this article and noted in the former article, the lines of Martha Ann Terry and Joseph R. Terry and particularly the line of descent from Nathaniel and Ann Thompson Terry is incorrectly stated by several members.
If you wish to receive evidence of the above one can send to the National Archives, Washington DC for the complete pension file # 14471.

Mike, Are you interested in Terry's from Ontario? I noticed a John Terry b.179?, d. 18?? who married into the Silverthorn family and lived in Oakville, Ontario. John Terry and Elizabeth (Silverthorn) had : 1) John H. Terry; Charles Terry; Elizabeth Terry, m. Robert Balmer; Esther Louisa Terry, m. Melancthon Simpson; William Frederick Terry; Ann Terry; and Joseph S. Terry. John Terry made regular trips to England. --- v1.36 * Origin: The COMMSOFT BBS (415) 967-6730 -- Mountain View, CA (143/26)

Larry, I am interested in any Terry's, the ones I am most familiar with are the descendants of Parshall Terry. The Loyalist part of the family ended up in Canada. [This is Larry McGee's line at 150/190 Chemist's Comport.] Later descendants were early elders in LDS church in Utah. Would like to link up with Terry researchers in Canada.
Mike, I'm interested in the part about the loyalists. The tradition we have in the family is that the Terry's were in Palmyra NY area around 1810-1818. Dates are just guesses, but it was after the Joseph Smith family moved to the area. Then they moved to Canada, but well before the Book of Mormon was published in Palmyra and before the Mormon church was organized near there. So some time between 1818 and about 1825. I would have thought if they were loyalists, they would have moved to Canada long before then. Ah here it is. Parshall Terry III b 30 Sep 1778 in Ft. Niagara, New York. First child born 19 Aug 1803 in Palmyra New York. Eighth child born 21 May 1819 in Palmyra. Ninth child born 5 June 1821 in Ontario Canada. So if they were loyalists, they would have left at least by the War of 1812? --- Sirius 0.50 * Origin: Chemist's ComPort 302-479-0302 Trailblazer to 9600 bps

SOLOMON BEACH IN DEARBORN CO. INDIANA
Mike, I noted your message to Yvonne Weber about Solomon BEACH in Dearborn Co, IN. I also have several lines that have moved from NJ and PA to OH and on to IN. The NGS Library has a book "Early Ohio Settlers: Purchasers of Land in Southwestern Ohio, 1800-1840" compiled by Ellen T. Berry, published by Genealogical Publishing Co, of Baltimore, 1986 (NGS Call Number F490.B48). This book lists individuals who bought land in SW Ohio and SE Indiana from the government.
Solomon BEACH has two entries for land purchased in the area described as follows:
"Indiana Survey: Land lying West of a meridian drawn West of the Great Miami River (known as the "GORE"). Switzerland, Dearborn, Franklin, Ohio, Union & Randolph Counties (all or only a part of each county) - all in Indiana." The entries are as follows:
BEACH, Solomon 2 Sep 1814 resident of Hamilton 2-11-36
BEACH, Solomon 22 Oct 1816 resident of So. Carolina 1-11-30
The three numbers are the Range, Township, and Section in which the land is located. This book is available at the NGS Library and through their Library Loan Program however the above is the entire entry for Solomon BEACH. I hope this will be of assistance to you.

Larry, Rec'd info regarding 'Hudson Valley Heros'. It was a lot of PARSHALL and some TERRY. However, the families are so inter-related it is relevant.
Mike, glad some of it may be of use to you. When I first heard of your board I was sure you'd already have everything that I have. Glad I could help. It will probably be ok to reprint if you give credit to the source. I hope you'll be able to make a connection with them. I haven't but then I haven't tried very hard yet either. About documentation with deeds etc.
Larry, I have very few counties on marriages in your family. Lots of dates though. I would like to re-print the Joshua Terry information from religious material.
Mike, the article on Joshua Terry is reprinted from the "Church News" of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The particular series was prepared by the Church Historical department. You could ask for permission there. I doubt there will be a problem. I think the same stories are in the Nora Lund book that you sent me a copy of.
Larry, are any of the original officers of the publication still active or alive?
Mike, I don't know if any are still active. The last I was able to find around home was 1973 but that could have been because my parents stopped subscribing rather than that they stopped publishing. If you find out about them please let me know. --- Sirius 0.50 * Origin: Chemist's ComPort 302-479-0302 Trailblazer to 9600 bps

ENOS TERRY OF OHIO
In the March issue, Bob Terry wrote about one of his Terrys-- Enos Terry of Ohio. He wrote that he had the unusual occupation of being a potter. That really excited me, because our Terry, who was from Ohio, was also a potter. I immediately wrote Bob a letter. He sent a very nice reply stating he really didn't know very much about Enos' family, but he gave me the information he had. I was very sorry to hear of his death. -- Janet Reid.

JOHN PEASE TERRY
John Pease Terry was born in Coos County, New Hampshire, February 16, 1807. His parents, Charles Terry and Huldah Pease, were from New Haven Connecticut, subsequently removing to New Hampshire, where our subject was born. When he was three years of age, the family removed to Oneida County, New York, and one year later to Ontario, now Wayne County, where his father purchased a farm in the wilderness, and began clearing it, assisted by his eldest sons. His father was a soldier in the war of 1812, and died in 1814 from the effects of a gunshot wound received in the defense of Sodus Point, on Lake Ontario, against the attacks of the British.
Shortly after this event, young Terry was bound out to a farmer, where he remained until he was about 19 years of age. Not liking his master, he left, and after visiting his sister some thirty miles distant; started on foot for the west, with but one dollar in his pocket, which he had borrowed from his mother. He had at this time no definite destination, but made his way to the mouth of the Genesee river, walking a distance of some forty miles. Then, by boat, he reached the mouth of the Niagara river, where, having spent his dollar, he stoped a short time, and cut wood to earn some money to enable him to pursue his journey by water. Reaching Buffalo, he again stopped, and worked a month carrying brick and mortar, for which he received ten dollars, half in cash and half in dry goods. He then boarded a sailing vessel bound for Cleveland, and was some seven days on the way, the vessel being stormbound. From Cleveland, he walked to Akron, Ohio, where he found employment for six months as a clerk in the store of the
contractors on the Ohio canal. This was in 1825. For something over a year subsequent he worked for his brother- in-law, William Lake, at Newburg, near Cleveland, in he manufacture of fanning mills. From 1828 to 1832, he was connected with the engineering corps on the Ohio canal, being for a part of the time assistant engineer. He was also subsequently engaged in contracting on the Cincinnati and Harrison Turnpike. On November 14, 1832, he married Susan Waller, daughter of Doctor Thomas Waller. He then purchased an interest in Clinton Furnace, Scioto County, and had management of it until the spring of 1834, when he was compelled to sell out and pay a large sum of money on an endorsement for Jacob Clingman, cashier of the old Commercial bank of Scioto. This misfortune left him worse off than nothing.
For several years following he was employed on the public works of Ohio and Indiana. In the fall of 1837, he embarked in the wholesale boot and shoe business in Portsmouth, and so continued for some four years. For the two subsequent years, he was engaged in freighting products to New Orleans, and for two years later in farming in the vicinity of Portsmouth, and still later in the milling business. In 1853, in connection with others, he built the Madison furnace, in Jackson County, Ohio, and he had the general management and supervision of it until 1864. In 1866 he purchased Buckeye furnace, in the same county, conducted it two years and then sold it. He was subsequently interested in a farm in Pettis County, Missouri, and also superintended the building of a furnace in Washington County, in the same state. After 1847, he was variously engaged in business in Portsmouth; was a while president of the First National bank.
He was town surveyor of Portsmouth from 1838 to 1844. In 1839, he received $50 per year for his services. In 1842, he and C. McCoy were fence viewers of Wayne Township. In the same year, he was a director in the Portsmouth Insurance Company. He was a school trustee in 1857. In 1864 to 1867, 1875, and 1880, he was a member of the City Board of Equalization. He was a member of the council in 1877. In 1880, he was a candidate for the State Board of Equalization for the Seventh Senatorial District, but was defeated by W. T. Washam. He was a director in the Portsmouth Iron and Steel Works until June 1, 1881, when he became president and general superintendent; and was also interested in a large tract of woodland near Portsmouth, working up the timber into lumber.
He always manifested a large degree of public spirit; and has been prominently active in advancing the efforts of his adopted city. He was a member of the county military committee, during the Civil War, appointed by Governor Dennison. In the discharge of the duties of this office, he
was independent, conscientious, and true to the interest of his country. Politically, Mr. Terry was a staunch, uncompromising Republican. He was very successful in this business, and always maintained first class credit. He was a fine specimen of a self-made man, and, as his record shows, worked his way from a poor, fatherless boy to a leading position among the business characters of his community. Retiring in manners, strictly honorable and conscientious in all his dealings, he was greatly respected in the community for his sterling qualities, both as a man and a citizen.
Mr. Terry had four sons and two daughters: Charles Terry, Louis Terry, deceased, who has a sketch herein, George Terry, Thomas Waller Terry, who died in the Civil War and has a portrait and sketch herein, Mary I. Terry and Alice B. Terry, who died November 25, 1890. Mr. Terry gave three sons to the cause of the Union, all three of them entering the army while yet under age. Mr. Terry died May 17, 1886.

LOUIS WALLER TERRY
Louis Waller Terry was born September 1, 1843, at Portsmouth, Ohio on the lot where Irvin Drew now lives. His father was John Pease Terry and his mother was Susannah Waller. He went through the Portsmouth schools before the age of sixteen and was in the first graduating class from the Portsmouth High School. He entered college in the fall of 1859. He remained in Kenyon College until December 1, 1861, when he enlisted in Company A, 33rd O. V. I. He was promoted form Private to Sergeant of his company January 1, 1862. He was made Quartermaster Sergeant of the Regiment on the same day, a double honor. He was mustered out December 4, 1864. He went into the County Treasurer's office as a clerk and was there until he was married December 17, 1866.
His wife was Florence Tillow, daughter of John Tillow, a former merchant of Portsmouth. After his marriage he was book-keeper at Buckey furnace, Jackson county, for three months. He then went to Hamilton furnace Missouri and was book-keeper there for a year. From there he went to La Grange and Clark furnaces, Tennessee, where he was book- keeper. He was there one year and after that spent three years as book-keeper at Talladega furnace, Alabama. He returned to Portsmouth, in 1880, and became book-keeper in the First National Bank of Portsmouth and were there in that
capacity and as Cashier until 1897, when he went to Seattle, Washington.
May 1, 1889, he was appointed City Collector of Portsmouth and was reappointed on April 17, 1890. At Seattle, he engaged in the wholesale cigar business and continued in it till his death. He died November 15, 1899, of paralysis. He was interred in Greenlawn and his widow resides in Portsmouth, Ohio. He was an Odd Fellow, an Elk and a member of the Grand Army. He was a communicant of Christ Episcopal church. Mr. Terry was one of the best business men of his time. As a book-keeper, he had no superior. Wherever his father was interested, he kept the books. He was not a man to make acquaintances readily, but when he once made a friend, he retained him. ------- Source: A History of Scioto County Ohio Together with a Pioneer Record of Southern Ohio, by Nelson W.

DANNY AND THE JUNIORS INCLUDES A TERRY
I received a newspaper clipping from Ernest Fricks with a picture of a group called Danny and the Juniors which indicated the group members were Bill Carlucci, Joe Terry and Frank Maffei. The article went on to say they recorded the smash hit "At the Hop" about 30 years ago. They have a new release on the Topaz label "Some Kind of Wonderful". Information in the article said the group just finished a stint at the Sands in Atlantic City and were just picked to present an award at the Monday night's Philadelphia Music Foundation Awards. "At the Hop" has sold over 10 million records since it was released in 1957. Terry pointed out that "At the Hop" was listed as No. 24 on the list of the top 100 rock 'n' roll songs from the last 30 years, which was compiled by Billboard magazine. "Imagine, we beat out (placed higher) Michael Jackson,", says Terry.

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?
The surname Terry is distinct in origin from the forename Terry. The surname is from the Germanic Theodoric; the forename from the Latin Terentius or Terence.
As a family name, Terry, which is rated Irish and English, had a circuitous development.
The source Theodoric (people-rule) was picked up by the French, turned into Thierry and passed along to the British in the 11th century.
In Britain it underwent the usual changes. In 1086 it was Tedric, in 1200 Tericus, in the 1400's Terrick and in the 1600s Terye. By the 18th century it has settled on Terr(e)y
The name turned up in Ireland about the 12th-13th century as Therry, Tyrry and Tirry, especially around Kilkenny and Cork. For the last several centuries it has
been spelled Terry. John Foley -------- Source: Newspaper clipping Wednesday, Feb 11, 1959 Sec 2, page 6. Newspaper name or place not given. Submitted by Pauline T. Carrington, 8297 Tamarisk Ave., Yucca Valley CA 92284.

SKETCH BY W. F. SURBER
My father, Adam Surber, was born in Virginia in 1804, and when he was about 18 years old he emigrated to Kentucky with his parents where they bought land in Pulaski county at fifty cents per acre. My grandfather's name was Jacob Surber, and he lived many years after moving to Kentucky. There were eight children in our family, but I am the only one now living. I was born January 13, 1835, and am therefore 87 years old. My wife and I have raised 11 children, all now married except one girl and she is living with us. We have 34 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren.
I left Kentucky January 10, 1870, and landed at Center Point, Texas, one month later. This was in Indian times, and raids frequently occurred. One time while I was away from home, up on the Verde threshing, my wife had a severe toothache and got up during the night to get fresh air, and when she opened the door someone jumped over the fence and ran away. The next morning there were two horses about 300 yards from the house that had been killed by the Indians. Not long after that the redskins came in again and stole two fine Kentucky horses from my cousin, Munroe Surber, near Comfort. The last and most brutal raid occurred in 1876. A
family named Terry lived about a mile and half south of Center Point. When the Indians came in on this raid they found Mr. Terry and his four little children some distance from the house and killed him and two of the children, badly wounded a third child and carried a little girl, nine years old, off with them. A negro boy named Jack Hardy had been captured in this raid and witnessed the killing of Terry and his children. At the time of the attack Terry was sitting down on the ground riving boards from cypress blocks and his children were playing about. As he had his head down he did not see the Indians approach, and was unaware of their presence until one of them shot him with a rifle. He sprang to his feet, ran a short distance and fell and was lanced to death by the Indians. Mrs. Terry, at the house, heard the commotion and seeing the danger, made her escape, ran to the settlement and gave the alarm. A party of men took the trail of the Indians and followed it to the Frio where they ran into the savages and captured the little girl. The negro boy got away from the Indians and was picked up by the pursuing party. I helped to wash and prepare the body of Terry for burial the next day. He was horribly butchered. Besides being shot he had been pierced through the body with lances and was bloody from head to foot. ------- Source: Pioneer History of Bandera County, pages 188-199. Other information not known. The information was sent to Pauline Carrington by Lee Mayfield, granddaughter of William Franklin Surber. Editor's note: Can anyone identify the Terry's involved?
