EDITOR'S NOTES
	There is a real dilemma in publishing this first issue of the TFH.
What to do? Most of my records come from states in the Southern area
geographically and specifically VA,NC,SC,AR and TX. However, I realize
we must include a broad spectrum of data from different areas to attract
new subscribers. It was not my intention to exclude any area or branch
of Terrys and should note that this first issue should be viewed
as a guide to a format rather than the norm. If you have any suggestions or
information we could use either.
	It is believed that the TFH should be as scholarly as possible (docu-
mented) but also "folksy" to give a personal flavor. I included several
items from my own family to give you an idea of what we might use. Please
send obituaries or other newspaper articles of those born before 1900.
	I have been impressed by Terry Records of Virginia due to its being
organized by Counties and data from each county appears together. As
you can see, I like to publish obituaries, cemetery records, military
records and other memorabilia together. It seems to make more sense to
me.
	There is a noted lack of census information and I did not publish
very many marriage record lists outside of North Carolina. I will however
in the future do this if we can identify a significant number of parents
of brides and grooms in a county listing. If anyone can do this in a
given county, I would prefer to publish this material first.
	A number of persons with expertise outside of the Southern geographic
area have promised data and others have volunteered to be contributing
reporters.--Don't give up -- I hope to improve as we go along.
	The picture on the front of the TFH is a copy of a tintype from
Janet Elliott Cain and is of Stephen Terry 1788-1866 and third wife
Mary A. Lewis. It costs $15.00 extra for any page which includes pictures.
I paid for this personally. I will have to ask the same for anyone sub-
mitting pictures. Hopefully, we can do away with the charge for queries,
but at present, the membership is not enough to pay for more than
the first issue. It costs exactly $2.50 to publish and mail the TFH. Every-
thing generated by the TFH will go into making it bigger and better.
	Thank you for your support. Please tell others of our budding publi-
cation.

TERRY BOOKS
Note: I will list books that contain a substantial amount of
Terry family information Some are out of print but are quoted quite often.
I have found these to be most useful-particularly trying to find out
and identify who the Terry families were in a certain location.
Sallye Pleasant Williams. First Families and Town Histories of Hinds
County (MS) Volume 2 (Jackson, MS: Mrs. John C. "Sallye" Williams, Nov-
ember 1978) pp. 230-284. Pages cited are a section on Southern Terry
families. Mrs. John C. Williams, 2232 Breckinridge Dr., Jackson, MS
29204. The collateral family information is very good and helped me.
It has some documentation but it is sometimes hard to figure out what
goes with which Terry. She notes that it is presently out of print
but loaned me a copy to look at.
Janet Elliott Cain. Descendants of George Elliott Pioneer Settler
of Atlanta: Including, Histories Background & Related Terry Family
(5977 Woodway Drive, Houston, TX : Janet Elliott Cain, 1980), pp.92-
114. Pages cited are a section on Terrys. It deals with  descendants
of Major Stephen Terry. It has a good deal of family sheet information
but little documentation. The book is very helpful for finding docu-
mentation for it lists locations and time frames. It does have several
pictures and maps, one of which is Major Stephen Terry and 3rd wife
Mary A. Lewis. It is priced at 15.00 and may be ordered from Janet
at the above noted address.
Edna Harris Bushnell. Terry Records of Virginia (Owensboro, KY;
McDowell Publications, 1980) In my opinion, this is probably the "Terry
Bible" for Virginia researchers. It has excellent documentation but
does not give relationships all of the time. It was much needed to
help unscramble Terry research which, as you know, is not always
correct. It my be ordered from Mrs. Bushnell at 2919 Fairway Dr.,
Birmingham AL 35213 and is priced $25.00. I guarantee it will save
you countless hours of research and money. In a recent letter to
me she noted that her Terry Records for MO,SC,AL,MS,TN and KY may
be ready by July, 1982.-- I am sure there will be a line.
Stephen Terry. Notes of Terry Families 1887. Hartford, CT. This
early work on both Northern and Southern Terrys is quoted in almost
every Terry work I have seen. I have, regretfully, only seen that
portion in Mrs. Bushnell's book but am advised it is in most large
libraries It is a good place to start research.
If there are other Terry books, or books that have significant
Terry information please let me know.

On 6 Oct 1981, I received a nice letter from Mrs. Lina Terry McIlwain 119
Oak Dr., Brandon, MS 3902. She Indicated at that time that there were two
Terry Coats of Arms. The one she has is the same as the John Terry early
of Virginia. However, I have seen other Terry Coats of Arms that were not
the same. Can someone clear this up? Possibly everyone is correct and
maybe different Terry families had different Coats of Arms. I checked
and Bolton, Charles Knowles Bolton`s American Armory. Baltimore: Genealogical
Publishing Co., 1969 lists one Terry Goat of Arms. (Lists coats of arms
of American families.) Three are listed in Burke, Sir Bernard. The
General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales London: 1884.
Reprint Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1969. (The main reference
source for English coat of arms.)
1 . Arms: Argent, a cross between four martlets gules . Crest: A demi-lion
proper holding a fleur-de-lis gules. (Arms: On a silver field, a cross
between four red birds. Crest: The top half of a lion in its natural
color holding a red fleur-de-lis.) Note: This appears in Descendants of
George Elliott Pioneer Settler of Atlanta by Janet Elliott Cain.
2. Arms: Ermine on a pile gules a leopard's head Jessant de lis or.
Crest: A four tongued griffin's head erased and gorged. (Arms: On a
ermine spotted shield a red triange containing a gold leopard's head with
a fleur-de-lis behind it. Crest: A four-tongued fictitious creature's
head torn from the body and with a crown around the neck, Note: This is
the Arms that Mrs. McIlwain indicates is the Arms for Virginia Terrys.
3. Arms: Azure, a fess argent between three crosses crosslets or, on a
chief of the last a demi-lion rampant gules. Crest: A demi-lion rampant
gules holding between the paws a shield or. (Arms: On a blue field a silver
bar between three gold crosses above which is a gold bar with a red half-lion.
Crest: The top half of a red lion holding a gold shield.)
4. Same arms as above. Crest: A demi-lion rampant gules holding between
the paws a shield with the representation of a human face thereon azure
garnished and rimmed or. (Crest: The top half of a red lion holding a
shield with a blue human face ornamented and rimmed in gold.)
From Sallye Pleasant Williams, 2232 Breckinridge Road, Jackson,MS 39204,
in a letter dated 20 Feb 1982. She noted that a historical marker for
the town of Terry, MS was dedicated last summer honoring William David
Terry, who donated the land for the railroad station/depot, the school,
four churches and the cemetery. W. D. Terry was the son of Joseph Minter
Terry and wife Lydia Mims and grandson of William S. Terry and wife Sally
Minter of Edgefield, SC. The town was named for him and Mrs. Williams is
a descendant of this family.
From First Families and Town Histories p. 233. Terryville, Texas took its
name from James Doss Terry b. 1 Nov 1835 TN m. 11 Apr 1859 in Victoria, TX
Kate Ferber,(dau of John Ferber) b. 28 Nay 1842, Nassau, Ger. He was the son
of Thomas Jefferson and m (1) Maria Doss of Smith Co., TN.

The above information was a result of early group efforts on family of
Stephen Terry by the following:
Janet Cain, 5977 Woodway Dr., Houston,  77057 Terry/Elliott
Peggy Thomas, 3418 Hillsdale Lane, Garland, TX 75042 Terry/Suggs

Robert M. Terry, Box 1531, Enid, OK 73702 G.B.H. Terry
Mrs. J.W.T. Armacost, Spruce Hill Farm, Hampstead, MD 21074. Morris/Terry

Nathaniel Terry (1768-1844): Representative from Connecticut. Nathaniel
Terry was born in Enfield, Connecticut, and attended college at Yale,
where he studied law. He established his practice in Hartford, Connecticut.
From 1807 to 1809 Terry served as judge of Hartford County Court.
He was elected to Congress in 1816 and served one term. Terry later
became president of the Hartford Fire Insurance Company, president of
the Hartford Bank, and mayor of Hartford.

Silas Wright Terry (1842-1911): naval officer. Born in Trigg County,
Kentucky, Silas entered the U.S. Naval Academy in 1861. Many of the
midshipmen at the Academy at that time were resigning to take sides
with the seceding states, but Terry declared that he would be loyal
and true to the Union, despite strong pressures to the contrary. He
served with distinction in the Civil War, on the staff of Admiral
Porter. Terry was promoted to commander in 1877, and rear-admiral
in 1900. His naval career is interesting in the fact that it spanned
from the days of sailing vessels to the time of more modem battleships,
including command of the battleship Iowa.

By the time of the first census in America in 1790, many Terry families
had settled in this country. The average Terry household had 5.5 members
and census records indicate that there were more Terry heads-of-households
living in Virginia, Connecticut, and New York than in any other part of
America. Today there are approximately 79,000 adult Americans named Terry.

Chester Co.
	On 27 Sep 1980 I received a letter from George H. Moore of
Chester Co., SC who noted that John W. Terry (1752-1834) was buried in a
cemetery on a farm owned by him. He was kind enough to take a Polaroid picture
and also copied the epitaph. The pictures are not re-printable as they
are unclear, but the map to the cemetery and what follows is
interesting. I had not seen it published anywhere else. It reads as follows:
SACRED TO THE MEMORY
OF
JOHN TERRY
WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE
ON THE 12TH DAY OF APRIL 1834
IN THE 83RD YEAR OF HIS LIFE
HE WAS A ACCEPTABLE MEMBER

	Mrs. Bushnell notes that the headstone was purchased by Priscilla
(Stokes) Terry in Charleston, SC. The estate papers of John Terry
above, indicates that a John White was paid for the headstone.

"An Old Resident Dies at His Son's Home"
On account of the bad weather keeping people at home as a result of which the
happenings in the different communities was tardy in being reported. The News
did not learn until yesterday of the death of Rev. H. M. Terry one of the oldest
citizens of the east part of Lamar county, which occurred last Thursday at
Blossom at the home of his son, Sam Terry, with whom he was living. Although
he was about eighty-five years of age and was in feeble health his death was
principally due to a fall which he received last summer in which he had a leg
broken. He had never recovered from the effects of the fall.
The deceased located in the Milton community when he moved to Lamar county and
he continued to reside there until about three years ago when he moved to
Blossom to make his home with his son, S. L. Terry. He was an ordained Minister
of the Baptist church and served one term as county commissioner. He was
married twice and is survived by his second wife and several children. The
children of the first wife are Geo. W. Terry of Milton, Charley Terry of New
Mexico, J. C. Terry of Plainview, who is sheriff of Hale county, Sam Terry,
with whom he was making his home, and Mrs. John Marcum of Blossom. The chil-
dren by his second wife are Hugh and Major Terry and Mrs. Raymond Hutchison.
The remains were taken to the Minter cemetery for burial and the funeral was
conducted by Rev. Harry M. Thompson pastor, of the Methodist Protestant church
of that place.
Mrs. Irene (Terry) Gray Harvey and Mrs. Agnes (Steel) Terry King both advised
me that there was a lot of snow on the ground and Hugh McClure was carried
on the under carriage of wagon to the cemetery. Uncle Sam, she said, had to
walk along and push the mud from the spokes. He came back to the George W.
Terry house and was very cold. Sam and George W. Terry were the only ones
who accompanied him to the grave yard. I have searched in vain for his plot,
it is unmarked and the grounds-keeper had no record of the plot.
Minter Cem. is one of the oldest in Lamar Co., TX.

From:	Paris Morning News, Tuesday, February 11, 1919.
"Aged Wife Follows Husband to Grave"
Mrs. Martha Terry, the widow of Rev. H. M. Terry, an old resident of
the county, died last Saturday evening at 5 o`clock at the home home of 
her daughter, Mrs. Raymond Hutchison, near Warlick Park. Her death was 
partly due to old age and to Brights disease, but it was hastened by 
a fall which she received nearly two weeks ago. While walking across
the floor she was tripped and had a hip broken. Her husband, whom died
a month ago, fell and broke his hip last August, which was said to have 
been the cause of his death, he never having recovered from the injury.
Mrs. Terry would have been seventy-eight years old on last Sunday, the
day after her death. She leaves two sons and two daughters, Ed Terry
of Milton, Hugh Terry of Plainview, Mrs. John Marcum of Blossom and
Mrs. Raymond Hutchison of Paris. She also leaves three sisters, Mrs.
Yarborough of Mt. Pleasant, Mrs. Hogue of Grapevine and Mrs. Keener of
Milton. The latter is confined to bed from falling and breaking a hip
three months ago. She also leaves several step-children.
The remains were taken to Blossom Sunday afternoon, where the funeral
was held at 4 o'clock, conducted by Rev. S.S.Crain.
I thought it odd that the obit for Hugh McClure Terry did not mention
either of his wives by name also step-children were not mentioned. A
picture of Hugh McClure and Martha Terry indicates they were not close.
I believe and this is born out by an interview with Agnes (Steel) Terry
King who advised, "Hugh never loved Martha and always loved Mary(Bennett)."
There may be some truth in this.
"Obituary for George W. Terry"
From:	Paris News Service clipping n.d. 1959.
The funeral of George William Terry, 93, of Milton community, veteran
Lamar County Commissioner and farmer, was set Thursday at 3 p.m. at the
Milton Church, conducted by the Rev. Curtis Hoover, Baptist pastor.
Grant Funeral Home here had charge of burial in Milton Cemetery, pall-
bearers being Tully Temple, Frank Lee, M. Harvey, Jack Short, Berney
Scott and James Rherdasil.
Mr. Terry leaves a son, Clark Terry, and a daughter, Mrs. Dee Harvey,
both of Rt. 1, Pattonville, seven grandchildren and five great-grand-
children.
Born near El Dorado, Ark. August 13, 1866, Mr. Terry was a son of the
late Hugh Mack Terry, a Confederate veteran, and the former Miss Martha
Bennett.
Page 19
Obit of Geo. W. Terry cont
His farm home had been that of three relatives, all of whom had been county
commissioners before him, his father, an uncle, S.L. Bennett, and J. W.
Bennett. George Terry first served as a commissioner for Precinct 1 by
appointment in 1920, to succeed J. F. Wharton who had died. Subsequently,
he served a number of terms in that office.
He married Miss Elsie Steel, Sept. 12, 1898, at Milton, her death occurring
about five years ago.
Mr. Terry died in a Paris hospital Wednesday after a 10 - day illness.
George W. Terry was well-liked and well remembered. On several occasions
I have visited Lamar Co. and the mention of my Great-Grandfather`s name
has allowed me to get information I would not have received so willingly.
My Aunts, Mrs. Irene Harvey and Agness King have also been very helpful and
very agile in remembering for me. Both very kind and warm "Southern Ladies".
This article was given to me and probably came from Paris paper
ca 1956.
Thanks again: Mrs. Agnes (Steel) Terry King.
"Geo. W. Terry, 90 Years Old Aug. 13"
  George W. Terry, former Lamar County commissioner of Precinct 1, observed
his 90th birthday Monday at the home of a daughter, Mrs. D. H. Harvey, near
Milton. Mr. Terry in good health, went about his activities without any fan-
fare on the occasion. A politician, he spent most of the day watching TV
programs of the National Democratic Convention in Chicago.
  To note the date, Mrs. Harvey baked his favorite cake, a pound cake and
decorated it with one lone candle, along with fried chicken and other trimmings.
  George William Terry, son of a Baptist minister, Rev. H.M. and Mary
(Bennett) Terry, was born Aug. 13, 1866 at El Dorado, Ark. He moved, at
the age of five with his parents to Milton community and settled on a
farm where he lived until the death of his wife, the former Elsie Steel,
in 1954. He and his late wife were married in 1897. Mr. Terry has two
Sons and a daughter, now living. They are Clark Terry and Mrs. Harvey of
Milton, and Frank Terry of Orange Grove, Calif. There are six grandchil-
dren. Another son, Oral Terry died in 1954.
  Beginning in 1920, Mr. Terry served five elective and two appointive
terms as Lamar County commissioner of Precinct 1, for a total of 13 years.
During the various periods he held this office, many miles of hard surface
roads were built in the county, and he was instrumental in securing many
thoroughfares now extending across Precinct l.
  Terry, who still drives his 1936 model car, is possibly the oldest
licensed driver in Texas. He has been driving a car for 40 years with-
out serious accident.

	"We keep forgetting all of those who lived before us. We keep for-
getting those who lived, and worked, and prayed, and sang, and built
long before we were born.
	We commit the sin of assuming that everything begins with us.
	We drink from wells that we did not find.
	We eat food from farm lands we did not develop.
	We worship in churches we did not organize or build.
	We enjoy freedoms we have not earned.
	We should be grateful for our heritage, and turn our minds in grate-
ful appreciation to those who lived in another day, and under vastly dif-
erent circumstances, so that we can live a better life today."

COVERING THE TERRY-TORY
By Robert W. Terry
4900 Springdale Road
Cincinnati, Ohio 45239
(Note: I wrote a column under the above heading for many years dur-
ing my career with the Cincinnati Post and other newspapers and thought
it applicable for a publication attempting to aid researchers of the
Terry family.)
I'm looking for THE John.
Object of my search is the eastern origin of g-g-g-grandfather John
Terry and the country from which he emigrated to the American colonies.
Research has resulted In ten looseleaf Research full of Terrys and
families into which they married.
Terry was a common surname in the colonies, occasionally spelled dif-
ferently -- Terree, Tiry, Tyree, Tony, Tarry, Torrey are some of the
variations.
One published list contained the marriage license for my g-g-grand-
father Robert, but listed his surname as "Levy". For a while I
thought I might be of Jewish descent.
My particular line of Terrys cane from New Jersey via western Virginia,
western North Carolina and central. Kentucky to Cincinnati. They were In
Cincinnati as early as May 1789, when g-g-g-grandfather John received a
gift lot and bought other lots in the village of Losantiville. Those
lots today are part of downtown Cincinnati.
Ancestor John Terry is a difficult man to trace. In the belief that
some of you are tracing a John Terry of colonial, times, let me list
some of the John Terrys I have found, and tell you where I found them.
1)	John Terry, 1760-1835, a seaman aboard the "Rolla", under Capt.
Peter Landais. Captured, later served on "Alliance" in fleet
commanded by John Paul Jones in the "Bon Homme Richard". This
John Terry died at Whitefield, Maine. (Source: Notes of the
Terry Family in the U. S.)
2)	John Terry, first bailiff of Frederica, Georgia, 1742. Accused
of raping a servant girl. (Sources: Immigrants from Great Bri-
tain to the Georgia colony and The Journal of William Stephens,
1743-45.)
3)	John Terry, 1726-?, son of Ebenezer and Mary (Helms) Terry, of
Enfield, Conn. (Source: Notes of the Terry Family in the U. S.)
4)	John Terry, private in 1778 volunteer company of Pittsburgh, Pa.
under Gen. (Edward) Hand. (Source: Frontier Defense of the
Upper Ohio, by Thwaites.)
5)	John Terry, surveyor of tract 24 miles southwest of St. Louis,
Mo. in 1804. (source: Missouri Land Claims.)
6)	John Terrie, 1771 witness to will of William Dangerfield in
Spotsylvania Go., Va. (Source: Spotsylvania County Records,)
Page 30

7)	John Terry, 1786, married to Alesey Dickey. (Source: Marriages
	Halifax Co., Va.)
8)	John Terry, member of Bedford Co. Va. militia	1774-82. (Source:
	"Our Kin" by Aikerly.)
9)	John Terry In Burlington Co. N. J. (Source: Deed Book.) 1751
10)	John Terry in Hanover Co., Va. 1790 (Source: Heads of Families,
	First Census, 1790, Virginia.)
11)	John Terry In King William Co., Va. 1782. (Sources, Virginia
	Taxpayers and King William Co. Taxable Land Record.)
12)	John Terry In Buckingham Co., Va. 1782. (Source: Virginia Tax-
	payers. )
13)	John Tearry In Green County, Tenn. (source: North Carolina Land
	Grants In Tennessee.) Grant made in 1787.
14)	John Terry, a baker. Arrived Boston, Mass. 1766. (Source: Port
	Arrivals and Immigrants to Boston.) Arrived from Halifax, N . S.,
	aboard sloop "Swallow".
15)	John Terry, 1767, arrived from Ireland at Boston, Mass. aboard
	brig, "Ann and Margarot". (Source: Ship Passenger Lists.)
16)	John Terry, 1768, aboard brig "Squid" from New Foundland.
	(source: Port Arrivals and Immigrants to Boston. )
17)	John Terry, 1776, refugee from Southold, Long Island N.Y., trans-
	ported to Saybrook, Conn. (Source: The Refugees from Long Island
	to Connecticut, by Mather.) Terrys were among original settlers
	of Southold.
18)	John Terry and John Terry, Jr., in Downe Twp., Cumberland Co.,
	N. J. (Source: Revolutionary Census of N. J.) 1773-74
19)	John Terry in Lincoln Co., Ky. 1781. (Source: Old Kentucky Entries
	and Deeds.)
20)	John Terry in Pittsylvania Co., Va. 1785. (Source: Heads of Fami-
	lies, First Census, Virginia.)
There are still other John Terrys, earlier and later. Information on
those listed is far from complete, but the mention may enable you to look
up those who may connect with your ancestry.
I NEED YOUR HELP ! ! ! !
In the next issue I will be focusing on Revolutionary War Patriots. If
you have any info let me know. I will also be looking at MS,AR, and
TN. Let's hear from you Northerners and Easterners also.

after they received the Indents went to Charleston (SC) to collect

	I received the following information from Mrs. R. P. Elliott, 301
Pine St., Clayton, NM 88415. She is a desc. of William Terry b. ca 1724
d. 1803 Botetourt Co. VA., These are excerpts from data taken from
Genealogy of the Family of Terry, compiled by Wm. T. Hocken, Jan l, 1952.
	Name of Terry is said to have been derived from Thierry, nickname for
the baptismal name of Theodoric of Tedric. Ancient records show it as:
Theirry, Thierre, Tirry, Terri, Tyrry, Terre, Terye, Terrey,Terry, etc. p. 4
Families of this name, possibly of Norman origin, were found in early
dates in the countries of Cumberland York, Huntington, London, Bucking-
ham Oxford, Somerset and Chester in England, as well as in Cork, Ireland.,
Were for the most part, landed gentry and yeomanry of Great Britain., p. 4
	Among early records of the name in England are those of David Filius
Tirry of Cumberland County, ca: 1273. Richard Terry of Huntingtonshire
and Geoffrey Terri of Oxfordshire, ca. 1273. Johannes Tyrry of York-
shire in 1379 , Petrus Terre of the late 14th Century, John Terri of
London in 1524, and brothers John, James and Thomas Terrey or Terry
of Barnet near London. John is said to have married the widow Eli-
zabeth (nee Gale) Pierepont, and had at least 3 sons, William, Ste-
phen and John. The last two are believed to have emigrated to America
ca. 1630, or shortly after, p. 4

tious, who had a son named William, who was the father of Thn Ramon
Terry, officer for the King of Spain in the 18th Century., p. 4
	Probably first name in America were Stephen and John Terry (brothers
mentioned above) . Stephen supposed to have come to Dorchester, Mass.
in 1630 and moved to Windsor, Conn. ca. 1637. Name of his wife is not
certain. Had issue Mary, John, Elizabeth and Abigail. pp. 4-5
	John, brother of above, supposed to have lived in Windsor, Conn.,
but not until Ca., 1635. He is said to have married twice and had
several children. He probably returned to England, for few records
are to be found here. pp., 4-5
	John, son of Stephen, married probably in 1662 to Elizabeth Wadsworth
and had issue: Elizabeth, Stephen, Sarah, John, Rebecca (died young),
Mary, Solomon, and Rebecca. p., 5
	In 1635 , three brothers , Thomas , Robert and Richard Terry (ancestry
unknown) came to New England from London and settled at Southold on
Long Island. Very little known about these 3 brothers, but Richard
is claimed to have issue by a wife named Abigail: Abigail, Gershom,
Nathaniel, Sarah, Richard, John, Samuel, Elizabeth, Mary and Bethia.
Eldest son Richard, Gershom, married Deborah Wells and had among
others, a son Gershom. p. 5
	Another early emigrant to America was Samuel Terry, said to have come
Barnet, near London England in 1650, and is said by some authorities
to have been the son of William, (Elder brother of John and Stephen),
but this is not proved. Samuel lived in Springfield, Mass., and is said
to have married Anna Lobdell ca., 1660., Children were: Samuel, Ephraim,
(died young), Thomas, Mary, Rebecca (died young), Elizabeth and Ann.
May have married again, Mary Scott, in 1690, but no issue by her, p. 5
