                          EDITOR'S NOTES
I want to thank everyone who sent articles, family sheets, ances-
tor sheets,  and pictures.  I especially wish to thank those  who 
just sent a little  extra to help publication. While I hoped that 
a  computer  would speed things up it seems to  make  publication 
harder  until  you get to know what you are doing.  I do feel  it 
will help get my data more organized.
    
 Also  had  several very good reviews  in  several  Louisiana 
newspaper columns and lots of new members.  We have about 150 now 
and still growing. 

     I  am not going to ask for any specific information for  the 
next quarterly and will try and focus on areas we have not cover-
ed as yet. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me 
know  what  you would like to see in the quarterly.--PLEASE  TELL 
YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT US.

     I was also informed that a member and relative,  Mrs.  Irene 
Terry Harvey of Pattonville,  Lamar County Texas died January  1, 
1983.  She  will be missed by us all.  She was instrumental in my 
early  research and was a kind and generous lady.  She  was  also 
very gifted and well-liked by those in that community.

     One  member  upon  reading her first issues of  the    Terry 
Family  Historian  indicated that she was  just  "Terry-fied".  I 
really liked that!!!  

     If  you  should  not  see your material  please  do  not  be 
discouraged.  I  have so much to pick from and it is so very hard 
to do. I will eventually try and get it published. 

     Last  of all,  I wish to thank my wife Debbie and  my  step-
daughter Emma for "Doing without me." for the last several weeks. 
I could not do this without their patience and support.
  HAPPY TERRY HUNTING AND I LOOK FORWARD TO ANOTHER GOOD YEAR
[Note:  The cover picture was submitted by Selby Bryant  Stratton 
of 3913 Watson Place, NW, Washington DC 20016. It is a picture of 
Helinda  Terry Besley 1814-1890 (a sister of Constant Terry 1806-
1872)  who related in 1890 The Terry Family History to Lucy  Anna 
Selby Terry Lombard (1858-1928).  See articles from Mrs. Stratton 
in  this issue.  She also sent several other articles  concerning 
descendents of Long Island Terry Families but I just will have to 
save it for another issue.--Editor.]

                     COVERING THE TERRY-TORY
                       by Robert W. Terry
                      "The Carolina Trace"
     There  was at least one Terry family that came to  southeas-
tern Indiana from South Carolina in the 1830's,  along with other 
families  whose route to their new location became known as  "The 
Carolina Trace."
     Just  why those South Carolina residents banded together for 
a  specific area in the Midwest I have been unable to  determine, 
but pack up and move they did.  Presumably, some families dropped 
off  along the route to locate in a spot that they  favored,  but 
many  of  them settled in new neighborhoods of  western  Hamilton 
County,  Ohio,  and in Dearborn,  Franklin and Wayne counties  of 
southeastern Indiana.
     Today,  a county road named "Carolina Trace" still exists in 
the Harrison,  Ohio community, a memorial to those South Carolin-
ians who came west about 150 years ago.
     Head  of  the  Terry family that  migrated  to  southeastern 
Indiana was a GEORGE TERRY. He and his descendants sidetracked my 
search  for ancestors in Franklin County,  Indiana but I  finally 
decided that there was no connection between George and my tribe.
     George  Terry and his family apparently arrived in  Franklin 
County,  Indiana  in  or before 1836.  Indiana Land  Entries,  by 
Waters,  show that the U.S. Government sold land to him on Feb. 8 
and Feb 12 of that year, 37.20 acres on each date.
     The land is described as the NW 1/4 and the SW 1/4 of the NE 
1/4 Section 20,  Township 8,  Range 1 West. It is located in pre- 
sent  Whitewater  Township,  Franklin County,  Indiana,  east  of 
Brookville,  the  county seat,  and north of the village  of  New 
Trenton.
     Because Franklin County, Indiana was formed from Wayne Coun-
ty,  I believe that George Terry may have been in Indiana several 
years earlier than his 1836 acquisition. A George Terry sold land 
to George Sutton in March, 1834, the land entered in Wayne County 
but located in present Franklin County.  
     George  Terry died in 1841 and his will is recorded in  Book 
4,  of  Probate Court records of Franklin County.  John Wynn  was 
named executor of his will.
     Bequests  included  $80 to George Terry Jr.;  $5 to  Eleanor 
Terry,  widow of Thomas Terry, dec'd., he the son of George Terry 
Sr.  and Mary Terry, and $20 each to three children of Thomas and 
Eleanor Terry, when they come of age.
     George Sr.  left 1/3 of his estate to his  wife,  Mary.  The 
remaining two-thirds was to be divided equally among his children 
after  his youngest daughter became of age.  (That youngest  dau-
ghter,   Sarah Taylor Terry, was 18 years old on Nov. 21, 1843.)
     Will  records  indicate that the family did not  wait  until 
1843 to settle the estate.  Instead,  an agreement was reached by 
all beneficiaries,  some in Indiana and some still in South Caro-
lina.
     George's widow,  Mary;  the son,  George Terry Jr., and dau-
ghters  Jane Soper,  Ann Eldon,  Ella Miller,  Margaret and Sarah 
Taylor Terry. All signed with their mark, except the last two.
Page (52)
Sons-in-law  Isaac  Soper,  Joseph Eldon,  and Harmon  L.  Miller 
affixed signatures.

     On the separate agreement with heirs in Greenville District, 
S. C., are the names of William Alexander Terry, Elizabeth Thomp-
son,  Harris Thompson, Mary Terry and Gaston Terry. William Alex-
ander and Gaston are presumably sons: Elizabeth Thompson and Mary 
Terry  are  presumably daughters.  Date of the signing  by  South 
Carolina heirs is given as Feb. 12, 1841.

     Disposition of the estate occurred after July 31, 1841, when 
daughters  Margaret and Sarah Taylor Terry purchased the property 
for $200.  After payment of the bequests and costs of settlement, 
less than $200 remained for distribution to the heirs. 

     This  information is furnished in the hope that it will  aid 
those tracing South Carolina Terrys -- possibly George was a lost 
son or ancestor, or just a name on a family chart.

     (Note:  Looking back in March issue,  Page 28,  my enclosure 
may be of help to Joyce Thompson, of North Augusta, S.C. who said 
that "Little is known of George Terry." RWT

       WILLIAM TERRY OF SAVANNAH CREEK: West of the Peedee
                               and
     WILLIAM TERRY OF HITCHCOCK'S CREEK: East of the Peedee
From  Footnotes  concerning the Terry Families of  Anson  County, 
North  Carolina  submitted by Ralph Terry,  Box 958,  Coleman  TX 
76834 taken from Anson County, North Carolina: Abstracts of Early 
Records by May Wilson McBee...originally published in  1950;  re-
printed  1980  by Genealogical Publishing Co.,  Inc.,  111  Water 
Street, Baltimore, MD 21202.
Page  20...1756..."To distinguish the two William Terrys who came 
to Anson County abt. the same time, one may be called 'Wm. Terry, 
of  Savannah  Creek' or 'William,  west of the Peedee,'  and  the 
other 'William Terry of Hitchcock's Cr.' or William,  east of the 
Peedee.' The latter,  however, began to be called 'William Terry, 
Jr.'  in  the latter half of the 1750's to distinguish  him  from 
William Terry, of Savannah Creek, who was occasionally called Wm. 
Terry, Sr. If the two families were related there is no record of 
it."
Note:  Remember  when  you begin to look at deeds and wills  from 
these counties that the following should be kept in  mind.  There 
is  a good possibility that families did not move at all but that 
the counties boundaries changed.-- Editor

           THE TERRY FAMILY OF COMANCHE COUNTY, TEXAS
                         by Ralph Terry
     The  story of the Terry family of Comanche County and DeLeon 
should  begin with Tod Robinson Terry born in 1811 in Anson Coun-
ty,  North Carolina. He married Mary Eliza Hill on 2 July 1837 in 
Madison Parish,  Louisiana.  Their first child,  John  Williamson 
Terry,  was born there 6 February 1840.  The family moved back to 
Alabama (as Tod's father, Eli, had owned large amounts of land in 
Autauga County before 1843).  The second child, William Cornelius 
"Bruce"  Terry,  was born there 17 April 1843.  The third  child, 
James  Tod Terry was born in Alabama 8 September 1844.  The  last 
child,  Mary  Eliza  Terry was born in Alabama 1  May  1846.  Tod 
Robinson  joined  the military service to fight in the  war  with 
Mexico.  He died from sickness near Mobile,  Alabama 14  December 
1847 as his company was enroute to embark to Mexico. His wife and 
four  children moved to Rusk County,  Texas in 1859 with a number 
of her Terry in-laws.  Each of Tod Robinson's sons served in  the 
Civil  War  with  the Confederacy.  All four children  and  their 
families moved to Comanche County (after having gone to  Missouri 
for a year or two) in the early 1870s.
     John  Williamson married Rebecca Alice Nelson in Rusk County 
in 1865.  They had a large family of 14 children,  12 growing  to 
adulthood.  They are: George Washington Terry, Mary Terry, Andrew 
Jackson Terry,  James Todd Terry, John Williamson Terry Jr., Burl 
Nelson Terry, Ernest Bruce Terry, Oscar Hill Terry, Rebecca Alice 
Terry, Lillie Mae Terry, Grace Lee Terry and Florence Terry. John 
Williamson Terry died in 1902 and is buried at DeLeon.

     James  Todd  Terry also had a large family of  11  children: 
Sarah E. Terry, William Cornelius Terry, John M. Terry, Mary Edna 
Terry,  James  Pickett Terry,  Florence Terry,  Maggie C.  Terry, 
Katie Leona Terry, Pearl E. Terry, Clara M. Terry, and Robert Lee 
Terry. James Terry died in 1910 and is buried at DeLeon.

    William Cornelius "Bruce" Terry had no children...one  adop-
ted. Bruce Terry died in 1924 and is buried at DeLeon.
     Quite  a  few  of the descendents still live in  the  DeLeon 
area.  Reunions were held every few years until the 1950s.  There 
had not been a reunion for several years but reunions were held
Page (57)
in 1981 and 1982 and one is planned for the summer of 1983 and is 
usually held at Promontory Park at Lake Proctor. For information, 
contact Ralph Terry, Box 958, Coleman Texas.

               A SHORT HISTORY OF THE TERRY FAMILY
                 by Ralph Terry of Coleman Texas
     Our  oldest proven ancestor was James Terry -- born  between 
1680  and 1689,  in either King William or King and Queen County, 
Virginia. One historian calls him Captain James Terry. He died in 
Edgecombe County,  North Carolina in 1746.  His wife was Margaret. 
His only known son was William Terry.
     William  Terry...was born about 1715 in King William or King 
and Queen County,  Virginia. They later moved to Caroline County, 
Virginia.  It  is possible,  however,  that they did not move  to 
Caroline County,  as it was originally part of these other  coun-
ties and was not set up as a separate county until 1727.  William 
Terry moved to North Carolina with his family in about 1740. They 
owned  land  in what was Halifax and  Edgecombe  Counties,  North 
Carolina. William's father deeded him land which bordered on that 
of  Mathew  Raiford.  William Terry married  his  daughter,  Mary 
Raiford,  about  1745.  He  served as an early Justice  of  Anson 
County,  North  Carolina  (1755-1756)  and was a Captain  in  the 
militia (1758-61),  commanding a company of rangers in the Chero-
kee Campaign of 1760.  He did not fight in the Revolutionary War, 
but was recognized for his material aid...this service is  recog-
nized by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).  He died 
about 1780,  and his wife died about 1790. His known children are 
l) James Terry,  2) Martha Terry, 3) Mourning Terry and 4) Marga-
ret Terry.

     James Terry...was born 19 November 1746 in Edgecombe County, 
North Carolina. He was Married in Anson County, North Carolina to 
Anne Robards,  24 May 1771, having moved with his family to Anson 
County  about 1750 and his father willing his farm or  plantation 
to  him at age 13.  He moved to Richmond County,  North  Carolina 
about 1790, buying lots 26 and 27 when the town of Rockingham was 
laid  out.  His wife died in 180l.  James Terry died in  Richmond 
County,  North Carolina 27 May 1816. Their known children are: 1) 
Eli Terry, 2) William Terry, 3) Martha Ann Terry.
     Eli Terry was born about 1772 in Anson County, North Caroli-
na.  He moved with his family to Richmond County,  North Carolina 
about  1790.  He married Mary Ann "Polly" Pickett who was related 
to  him through the Raiford line,  17 December 1799  in  Richmond 
County,  North  Carolina.  In 1818 he moved from here to  Autauga 
County,  Alabama,  with his brother-in-law,  Tod Robinson and his 
cousin,  William  Raiford Pickett and their families.  Due to the 
War of 1812,  a large number of soldiers had seen these lands and 
returned to settle here after the war.  Alabama was made a state  
in 1819. Eli Terry owned land, slaves, was state solicitor, and a 
local  preacher in the Methodist Church...He was instrumental  in 
dividing  the Methodist Church in Alabama in the late  1820s.  He 
died in 1836 and is buried near Autaugaville.   His wife,  Polly, 
died sometime after 1860 in Rusk County, Texas, having migrated
Page (58)
there about 1859 with several of her children and their families. 
Known  children  of Eli and Polly Terry  are:  1)  James  Pickett 
Terry, 2) Eli Terry, 3) Sarah Terry, 4) William Robards Terry, 5) 
Tod  Robinson  Terry,  6) John Kinbrough Terry,  7)  Walter  Leak 
Terry,  8) Eli Albert Terry, 9) Mary C. Terry, 10) Ann Terry, 11) 
Appia C. Terry,  and three unnamed infants. 

     Tod  Robinson  Terry...was born about 1811 in Anson  County, 
North Carolina. He came with his family to Autauga County, Alaba-
ma in 1818.  For a reason I have not yet established,  he married 
in Concordia Parish Louisiana on 2 July 1837 to Mary Eliza  Hill. 
Their  first child,  John Williamson Terry,  was born in  Madison 
Parish, Louisiana 6 February 1840. I do not believe that they had 
moved as Madison Parish was created out of Concordia in 1838. The 
family  moved  back  to Alabama before 1843,  as the  second  son 
William Cornelius "Bruce" Terry was born there 17 April 1843. The 
third  child,  James Terry (as he was later known by his  descen-
dents;  all  the  early census records list him as  Tod  Robinson 
Terry) was born in Alabama 8 September 1844. The last child, Mary 
Eliza  Terry was born in Alabama 1 May 1846.  Tod Robinson  Terry 
then joined the military service to fight in the war with Mexico. 
He  died from sickness near Mobile,  Alabama 14 December 1847  as 
his company was enroute to embark for Mexico.  His wife and  four 
children moved to Rusk County, Texas in 1859 with a number of her 
in-laws.  Each  of Tod Robinson Terry's sons served in the  Civil 
War  with the Confederacy.  All four children and their  families 
moved  to Comanche County,  Texas (either as a group or separate-
ly,I am not sure) in the early 1870s.  All homesteaded land  that 
adjoined,  being located north of the Sabana River, just south of 
DeLeon. With the exception of Bruce Terry, all married and raised 
large  families.  John  Williamson died in 1902,  Bruce in  1924, 
James in 1910,  and Mary Eliza (Chambers) in 1907. All are buried 
at the DeLeon Cemetery.  Many of their descendants still live  in 
this area, as well as many others who have scattered to all parts 
of the United States.

        TERRY FAMILIES OF RICHMOND COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA
                       by Michael Pafford 
            Route 3, Box 3165 A, Blackshear, GA 31516
     The  subject will require separation since there appears  to 
be  more  than one family or perhaps numerous connections of  the 
same  family.  Little of what is known has  proven  substantiated 
fact at this point to back it up.
     WILLIAM TERRY:  A lack of established dates makes it hard to 
say  just  when  he lived.  He was English settling  in  Richmond 
County  prior to 1790 where he married Sarah Childs Leake  (1784-
1852),  daughter  of  Walter Leake and  Hannah  Pickett,  pioneer 
settlers of Anson and Richmond Counties.  William Terry was gran-
ted  a  land  grant of 200 acres of land on  Hitchcock  Creek  in 
Anson, present Richmond County. This grant was registered in the
Page (59)
Governor's  office  in  New Bern on 31 Dec  1770  containing  the 
original  signature  of Governor Tyron and the wax  seal  of  the 
Crown  of England.  This document and an old family Bible are  in 
possession of descendants today.

     This  William Terry had a son,  Samuel Terry (1800-1875) who 
held public office at one time and who married Ann Eliza Crawford 
(1813-1882) daughter of Col.  Thomas Crawford and Rebecca Coving-
ton.  While  descendents  who have done some  research  say  that 
Samuel  Terry had no brothers or sisters they know of,  the  1790 
census  of Richmond County shows that William Terry in that  year 
(1790)  had 2 males over the age of 16 and 1 male under  16.  The 
author at this point has not surveyed the 1800 census for compar-
ison.

     A  cousin  of  mine who has Terry in both his  paternal  and 
maternal ancestry tells me that he does not believe his two Terry 
families to be related. A Terry by birth, this cousin and I share 
the  same lineage on his paternal side,  his mother was a  grand-
daughter of the above Samuel Terry (1800-1875).
     Samuel  Terry and Eliza Crawford Terry had the  following  6 
children:  1) Caroline Terry 1843-1911 never married; 2)Elizabeth 
Jane  Terry 1845-1872 m.  John W.  Bennett;  3) William C.  Terry 
1846-1870 never married;  4)  Rachel Clark Terry 1849-1912  never 
married;  5)  Martha H.  Terry 1849-1917 never married; 6) Joanna 
Terry 1851-1916 m.  Robert LeRoy Phillips. Members of this family 
are buried in the  Samuel Terry Cemetery in Richmond County.

     JAMES  TERRY,  SR.   The  above discussion of William  Terry 
mentions the existence of a Terry Bible in possession of  descen-
dents  of Samuel Terry which appears to date back at least to the 
early  1800s.  The  Bible which is known by  descendents  as  the 
Crawford-Terry  Bible  would  indicate a stronger  connection  to 
Samuel Terry than to his father. 

     James Terry, Sr. bought land in 1789 in Rockingham when that 
town was laid out. He served one term as a state senator in 1792-
1793.  He is also one of 2 overseers along with Eli Terry to keep 
Hitchcock  Creek clear.  The old William Terry homeplace  was  on 
Hitchcock Creek near Terry Bridge -- Hitchcock Creek is mentioned 
prominently in connection with all Terrys of Richmond County. 

     Richmond  Terry and Jane Terry (1774-1852) were both  living 
in  the home of Samuel Terry (1800-1875) when the 1850 census  of 
Richmond County was taken.  The daughter, Nancy Terry (1806-1854) 
was  shown  as head of household with 5  apparently  illegitimate 
children. For these people to be recorded in Samuel Terry's Bible 
and  to  have lived with him in their last years at  least  would 
indicate a close relationship.

     JOHN C.  TERRY:   John C. Terry, my great-great grandfather, 
was born in Richmond County on June 16,  1830,  a son of John and 
Nancy  Terry.  He married Frances "Fannie" Gibson,  a daughter of 
John K.  Gibson and Elizabeth Watson. Fannie was born in Richmond 
County on January 20,  1837 and died there on February 28,  1925. 
John C. Terry had preceded her in death on May 30, 1891 and was a 
mason.  They  are buried in the cemetery at Green Lake  Methodist 
Church in Richmond County.  They had the following  children:  1) 
Elizabeth  Terry 1861-1948 m.  Joseph Gibson 8 Jan 1880 (my great 
grandparents);  2) Ella Terry 1864-1940 m. Thomas Joshua Fletcher 
21 Feb 1883; 3) Lillie Terry 1866-??   m. Starling F. Gibson 22
Page (60)
Jan 1888;  4) Lawrence Thomas Terry 1867-1951 m. Martha Ann Welch 
28  Feb  1905;  5) George Grafton Terry  1870-1940  m.  Elizabeth 
Bennett 4 Jun 1891.

     John  C.  and Fannie Terry also had 2 infant  daughters  who 
died  at birth.  My g-g-g grandfather,  John Terry and his  wife, 
Nancy were both born in 1790, probably in Richmond County and had 
only one other child known to the author, a son named James Terry 
born 1833 and married Lydia ??.

     OTHER  TERRY'S:   The  1790 Richmond Census  shows:  Matthew 
Terry with 1 male over 16 and 3 under 16;  William Terry as  dis-
cussed above,  James Terry with 2 males under 16 and 2 males over 
16, James Terry (Jr.?) with 1 male under 16. For this discussion, 
only  those Terrys on the 1850 Richmond Census born prior to 1810 
will be covered. 

     1) Jane Terry b.  1773 -- apparent widow of James Terry, Sr. 
living in household of Samuel Terry.  2) Joanna Terry b.  1776 -- 
living in home of Eli Terry,  born 1799.  This Eli Terry was pro-
bably a son;  she likely to be the widow of Eli  Terry,  Sr.  Eli 
Terry  was  named on 19 Apr 1801 as one of Magistrates of  County 
Court  of  Pleas and Quarter Sessions.  He was also  one  of  two 
overseers  named with James Terry,  Sr.  to keep Hitchcock  Creek 
clear and is named with James Terry Sr. in both above references. 
In  1805,  he was named one of 3 commissioners to let repairs  on 
the courthouse.

     3)  John Terry b.  1790 my g-g-g grandfather -- probably the 
son  of  one of the Terrys in the 1790 census  married  Nancy  b. 
1790.  

     4)  John Terry b.  1796 -- likely cousin to above John Terry 
m. Julia b. 1807.

     5) Eli Terry b.  1799 believed to be a Jr.  -- widower  with 
children in 1850.

     6)  James  Terry b.  1799 -- likely brother to one of  above 
John Terrys, cousin to the other, married Jane b. 1809.

     7) Champ Terry b. 1801/03 -- no speculation. He married Ruth 
Gibson b. 1810, daughter of Nelson Gibson, Jr. and Rutha Dawkins.

     8)  Samuel Terry b.  1800 -- son of William Terry and  Sarah 
Childs Leake,  married Ann Eliza Crawford b.  1813 and a daughter 
of Col. Thomas Crawford and Rebecca Covington. A possible connec-
tion  to  Eli and Joanna Terry exists in that  Samuel  named  his 
youngest  daughter  Joanna,  probably after above Joanna who  was 
alive when Samuel Terry's daughter was born and lived on into her 
80's.

     9) Stephen Terry b.  1802 -- likely brother/cousin to  above 
Terrys, married Sarah b. 1818.

     10)  Nancy  Terry b.  1806 -- daughter of James  Terry,  Sr. 
apparently never married with 5 illegitimate children.

     11)  Richmond Terry b.  1810 --never married,  son of  James 
Terry Sr. and he lived in home of Samuel Terry.
     CONCLUSION:   A close bond likely exists between the  Terrys 
of Richmond County,  North Carolina,  one of blood,  marriage and 
otherwise.

                    Marriages Richmond Co. NC
     Note  by  the editor:  It should be mentioned that  in  most 
cases  early marriages in NC reported are more than likely  bonds 
of  intent.  One had to get a witness and bondsman to post  bond. 
Often  the  witnesses and bondsmen were relatives or  near  rela-
tives.  Mr.  Pafford  asked that I mention something about  this. 
Afterwards later counties issued licenses.

               FAMILY FINDS 'JUNK' EMBROIDERY DONE
                   DURING AMERICAN REVOLUTION
                         By Donald Grant
     Ref:  The  Globe  and Mail,  Thursday,  November  28,  1974. 
Submitted by Selby Bryant Stratton.  (This is a  Toronto,  Canada 
newspaper.)
     Nearly  discarded as a piece of junk six years ago,  a  rare 
piece  of embroidery,  owned jointly by two Clinton Street  fami-
lies, has been dated back to the American Revolution.
     
     Al  Dickinson  said yesterday a purchase slip has enabled  a 
genealogist to connect the well-preserved piece of early American 
art to the Lee, Davis, Terry and Strathy families, early settlers 
of Upper Canada and York, at least 175 years ago.

     Mr.  Dickinson said Mrs.  Olive Meredith found the  multico-
lored  embroidery  in  a book while they were  cleaning  out  her 
parents' belongings in a Tilbury house in 1968.

     "Sis (Mrs. Meridith) found it in a book, covered with papers 
for protection--it almost got thrown out,"said Mr. Dickson.

     "I  knew it was something special--...and we researched  the 
work  for  two years." The bill of sale,  written in  quill  pen, 
carries the names Mr. Anstey and Strathy of Toronto, Canada.

     On  the back,  in print by an early typewriter,  is a  brief 
history of the work,  noting that an "old lady in 1700 during the 
Colonial War" did the embroidery "after the Boston Tea Party."

     The  woman  and her family came to Canada as  United  Empire 
Loyalists, the story says but she gave the work to a daughter who 
stayed  in  the United States.  It was later sold to  an  antique 
dealer named Flatte or Flatou, and bought by the family in 1880."

     "We had to find out whose family," Mr. Dickinson said.

     The  embroidery,  showing a stage coach in front of  Windsor 
Castle,  followed by a troop of soldiers, and in the foreground a 
man  waving under a tree and a woman riding a horse  side-saddle, 
with  a soldier and groom,  had unusual tree shadows which seemed 
to spell either 1773 or Lee.

     "The search worked out to Lee," Mr. Dickinson said.

     A well-known Willowdale retired high school teacher and  his 
wife,  who  wish to remain anonymous traced the names Strathy and 
Anstey to a Dr.  Ebnezer Lee of Hartford,  Conn. who with his son 
came to Canada in 1796.

     The family tree then went to Dr. William Hooker Lee, who
Page (69)
married Phoebe Davis,  to Dr.  Hiram Davis Lee,  who married Anna 
Terry,  who had two children,  Elvira,  who married J. B. Strathy 
and Louisa who married Herbert Anstey.

     Anne  Terry was the daughter of Parshall Terry,  one of  150 
settlers  who  had a track of land in York just east of  the  Don 
River.  He was one of the first parliamentarians in Upper  Canada 
in 1793, said Mr. Dickinson.

     The  Embroidery has been authenticated by Mrs.  Betty Brett, 
associate curator of textiles at the Royal Ontario  Museum,  said 
Mr. Dickinson.

     "It's  unique," said Mr Dickinson.  "It's really fine needle 
work,  not the fish hook type needles, but the finer needles that 
only the upper crust had in those days. Then it's silk on linen."

     A  Victoria and Albert Museum official  in  London,  England 
said  the embroidered pictures were worked in silks or wools on a 
silk ground around 1780 to 1820.

     "By  this time the silk grounds have decayed...but yours  is 
in a fine state of preservation," wrote the museum official.

     Mrs. Meredith and Mr. Dickinson are not sure what they'll do 
with their artwork, but they're taking precautions to preserve it 
in an aluminum casing.

              TERRY FAMILY OF SELBY BRYANT STRATTON 
                     3913 Watson Place, N.W. 
                     Washington, D. C. 20016
     Sometime  after the publication of Alex Haley's book  ROOTS, 
my  grandson,  Chris  Flagg,  had a school assignment to draw  up 
family trees.  He phoned to ask that I help -- which I was  happy 
to  do.  At the same time,  his grandfather put together what  he 
knew of his families -- STRATTONS and SYMINGTONS.
Page (71)
I  remembered  that I had a few typewritten pages  on  TERRY 
genealogy which my maternal grand-mother,  Lucy Terry Lombard had 
written  in 1924.  This was given to her by Hilinda Terry Besley, 
sister of her father,  Constant Terry when she visited  relatives 
in  New York in 1890.  I found the paper,  copied it,  added what 
else I could recall and sent it off to Chris. 

     After  reading  my grandmother's paper,  I realized  I  knew 
little  or nothing of our ancestors - was curious and  interested 
so  decided  to  do as complete a genealogy as I  could  for  our 
children  and  grandchildren and other members of the  family  -- 
this is it!

     First,  I wrote to the few living relatives on both sides of 
my  family and both sides of the Stratton family.  All  responded 
and helped as much as they were able.  Didn't get too much.  Next 
wrote to City,  County, and State Historians and Historical Soci-
eties-- after  a  number of months had quite an  accumulation  of 
copies of paper from these assorted sources that documented names, 
places,  dates of births, marriages and deaths, wills, deeds, and 
other data.  Tried for a long time to sort out the data to estab-
lish the bloodline of "our" TERRY family.

     There were many gaps - had to start writing to more and more 
sources for added information.

     There  follows copy of some lines from the paper written  by 
Lucy Terry Lombard in 1924, Eagle Pass, Texas.

     "Genealogical  tree of TERRY family line as far as given  me 
by Hilinda Terry Besley in Palmyra,  New York, recorded 23 of May 
1890."

     "Barnabas  Horton  and Richard Terry,  two of  the  thirteen 
original proprietor of Southold, Long Island 1640 A.D."

     "Parshall  Terry - Born to Richard Terry sons among whom was 
Parshall the third or fourth child (Note:  found in my search  he 
was fifth generation). He was one of the first forty to enter the 
Valley of Wyoming -- settled at Kingston, PA with his family. All 
were  in the famed Forty Fort at time of the battle and massacre, 
July  2,  1778.  This same Parshall Terry's sons  and  daughters: 
Ephraim;  Parshall; Jonathon; Joshua; Nathaniel; (Note: He proved 
to  be the father of Constant Terry,  in turn the father of  Lucy 
Anna Selby Terry) Deborah; Deliverance; Lydia; Mitta."

     "Constant  Terry  married Maria Hannah Selby Moore in  1845. 
Father  and  Mother of L.A.S.T.  (Lucy Anna Selby  Terry)  Father 
often called me his 'Little Last'."

     "Constant  Terry born October 28,  1806.  Married Miss  Lucy 
Brown.  She  died leaving two sons - Nathaniel and  Theodore.  He 
died on June 22, 1872."   
    
     So,  from the paper I had the names RICHARD TERRY,  PARSHALL 
TERRY,  NATHANIEL TERRY,  CONSTANT TERRY,  and MARIA HANNAH SELBY 
with  some dates and places.  Without this information,  I  could 
never  have  compiled twelve generations of "our"  TERRY  family. 
Even so,  it has been a long, slow process, begun in 1976. As the 
families were large in numbers and passed on to succeeding gener-
ations the same given names.

     Seeing  the TERRY lineage unfold was of such interest to  me 
that  I  worked  simultaneously on  our  other  families:  SELBY, 
BRYANT,  LOMBARD,  DOUGLAS,  STRATTON, SYMINGTON. And, to a small 
extent  on  the spouses of our  children:  BARFIELD,  FLAGG,  and
Page (72)
WERNICK. And, on the HORTON family as they had started with TERRY 
in Southold, Long Island, New York in 1640 and for several gener-
ations their children had intermarried. 
Note: The above was written for Will, Terry, Julie Stratton; Lisa 
and Ellen Stratton; Chris, Debbie, and Julie Flagg.

The following information was also among my mother's papers:
    "Origins".The Terry family,  as well as the Waggoners, origi-
nated  in Virginia.  The Terry brother's parents were Jasper  and 
Sarah Fuller Terry who were married in 1797 in Montgomery County, 
Virginia.  This  Jasper Terry's parents were Eliah and Mary  Loyd 
Terry.  Eiliah  fought  in the American  Revolution.  The  Fuller 
family  came from New York to Virginia.  Sarah Fuller was born in 
New  York.  Ansolem Terry and Rebecca Waggoner were both born  in 
Virginia. The Jasper Terry family moved to Kentucky where several 
of the children were born. Then they moved to Illinois."
Brothers who came to Texas
Ansolem L. Terry              ) From Illinois to Texas 1842
Rebecca Waggoner Terry        )
Robert Norman Terry           ) From Illinois to Texas 1855
Telitha Bethel Terry          )
James F. Terry                ) From Illinois to Texas 1842
Katherine (Kit) Boiles Terry  )
Andrew B. Terry                )From Illinois to Texas ca 1850
Margaret "Peggy Waggoner Terry )
Jasper  Newton  Terry came to Texas but returned to  Illinois  to 
live.

Note:  This  is a partial list of the Terry brothers who came  to 
Texas  from  Illinois before the Civil War.  There  was  a  sixth 
brother,  name  unknown.  Also,  one sone of Robert Norman Terry, 
Cyrus Terry,  married Virginia Waggoner.  Virginia was a niece of 
Rebecca  (wife of Ansolem Terry) and Margaret (wife of Andrew  B. 
Terry). Virginia's father is David Waggoner; so all I know is
Page (76)
that David, Rebecca and Margaret are siblings--I don't know their 
parent's names. Any help appreciated.

1762- Stephen  Terry,  Hanover  Co.  VA deeded 400 acres to  sons 
James and Rowland Terry,  in Granville Co. NC (Mr. Thompson has a 
copy of this deed.)
1736- Stephen  Terry,  named  executor of the  estate  of  Thomas 
Terry,  Caroline Co.  VA. Mr. Thompson and myself plus many other 
would like to know if these are the same Terry's?
Passenger & Immigration lists Index, Filby & Meyer, Vol. 2, lists 
Thomas  Terry  a immigrating from England to  Virginia,  age  25, 
1635. Is this the Thomas Terry who will is dated 1736 above?
Information on Hanover,  Caroline,  King William Counties of Vir-
ginia, which overlap due to dates of formation, have been hard to 
get.  I  have corresponded with Ame D.  Crute,  Registrar of King 
William County Historical Society (VA) who advises that a set  of 
books  is available by Dr.  Malcolm Harris,  "Old New Kent County 
History" which has information on the Terry families. The cost is 
$30.00  plus $2.50 postage & handling.  Are you  familiar?  ---In 
this case a large map is available showing old homes and  planta-
tions  of  early families,  @ 2.50 postage  and  handling.  (This

(Will  proven  28 Sep 1771 Pittsylvania Co.  VA)  wife  Elizabeth 
Irby,  and  daughter,  Keziah Terry.  Keziah was mar 1st to James 
Scott,  where?  when?  He died in 1757, was he killed by Indians? 
They had children John (m. Chloe Riggs), Sarah (b. 1755, m. Zadoc 
Riggs) and possibly Benjamin Scott. Keziah m. 2nd Richard Murphy, 
when?  Moved to Surry Co.  NC. I have little information on these 
families  and  quite  a  lot  on  the  Riggs.  Will  be  glad  to 
exchange.Recently  received  Terry info from the  VA-NC  Piedmont 
Gen.  Soc.  in Danville,  VA and they included your name and  ad-
dress.  My Terry line begins with Keziah Terry,  dau. of Benjamin 
Sr.  and  Elizabeth  Irby of Halifax and Pittsylvania  Co.'s  VA. 
Keziah was first married to James Scott who died about 1757 and I 
descend  from this line.  Her 2nd marriage was to Richard  Murphy 
and they migrated to Surrey Co.,  NC and I believe probably  died 
there.  I  do  not know too much about the Terrys other than  re-
search  that was done about 15 years ago....It seems at  that  at 
the  time  we were trying to prove that the parents  of  Benjamin 
Terry Sr. were James and Diana (Royal) Terry. I am also trying to 
determine  if Nathaniel Terry who was so prominent was the son or 
brother of Benjamin Terry Sr. Mrs.  Lawrence G.  Bowe,  7849  S.E. 
Johnson Creek Blvd. Portland, OR 97206.
Page (83)
(NOTE:  Several of the questions posed by Mrs. Bowe are important 
to me also. I have seen all of this in print concerning Nathaniel 
the Indian fighter etc.,  etc.  and the Terry-Royal connection. I 
believe  that  Benjamin Terry m.  Elizabeth Irby had a son  named 
Nathaniel  Terry.  However,  I have also seen it noted that  this 
same Benjamin had a brother named Nathaniel.  However,  there are 
no  Nathaniels the same age group with this Benjamin (I)  that  I 
have found. Would like some feed-back.  THE EDITOR

In  re-reading  the  Sep 82 issue of the TFH page 70  I  noted  a

noted  that  President Washington had no children.  (I  may  have

I have a question for the readers of the TFH.  What is the origin

My  Jesse  Terry is the only Terry found in the First  Census  of 
Texas.  And are found on the 1850 Census of Anderson Co., TX. But 
from  there  on they are very hard to  locate.  Is  Sarah  Terry, 
widow, and Moses Terry both found on the 1796 Tax lists of Carter 
Co.  TN the same ones later found in Franklin Co. AL about 1830s? 
Who was husband of Sarah Terry? Moses Terry was married (probably 
2nd  wife)  to Elizabeth Cowan,  29 Jul 1824,  Lawrence  Co.  TN, 
bondsman  wa Elliot Lindsey.  His son Jesse Terry was married  21 
Apr 1825 to Elizabeth Lindsey in Lawrence Co.  TN,  bondsman  was 
James Kelly. I have assumed from census records that Sarah is the
Page (85)
mother  of Moses and that Moses and the first wife are parents of 
my Jesse Terry, need more proof. Allie Wilson Oldham, Star Rt. 3,

240683 TERRY SLEDGE FREEMAN WHITTLESEY
I am not sure about my Terry line. Let me explain. My maiden name 
is Sledge.  My g-g-g grandfather was Lemuel/Limuel Sledge. He was 
married  twice.  First wife was Abigail Huld/Hulda Terry.  Second 
wife  was Nancy Jane Freeman.  A woman tracing the Sledge  family 
sent me information stating that Nancy Jane Freeman was  Lemuel's 
first wife and that was my line.  This summer I was able to get a 
copy of the 1890 census and it stated tht Nancy was Lemuel's wife 
and  was six years younger than Eldredge Sledge,  my g-g-grandfa-
ther  (Lemuel's son).  Therefore Abigail Terry must be my  g-g-g-
grandmother.  What  little information I have on Abigail is  that 
she  was part Indian;  she might have been b.  in VA  or  TN,  as 
Lemuel was born about 1800 in VA and Eldredge was born in 1822 in 
TN?  and some children were burned to death in a fire.  Maybe she 
died at the same time? Any help would be appreciated as CT libra-
ries  do not carry many southern records.  My father Orien Sledge 
was born and raised in Mississippi, so my interet does indeed lie 
with  the southern Terry family.  Marilyn S.  Whittlesey 70  Iron

which were in NY in the later quarter of the 1600s.  I am descen-
ded  from Anne Terrier who married Jacques Sicard  (b.  1675).  I 
have  not been able to find anything concerning this  family  and 
wonder if the name could have been changed to Terry at some time.

Enclosed  is  a copy of a letter to my Grandfather Lonnie  Thomas 
Terry  from  his Mother.  I found the letter in the attic  of  my 
Grandparents  home  10  years after my  Grandfather's  death  and 
several  months  after my Grandmother's death.  I was looking for 
something else,  but located a small blue box that contained this 
letter,  an ancient pair of "spectacles" very mall and  delicate, 
and  a  pair of very tiny high top black baby boots.  And a  hair 
comb  which  had broken into many pieces....My  Grandfather  died 
when I was 13 years old, and I hadn't thought to ask him anything 
about the family before that. I feel that this letter is a gem of 
the  Terry family history and would like to see it  published  so 
that it will be preserved. Ethiel Bernice Johnson 15834 Drysdale,

and Nancy (Bohord) Smith, born June 1869 in Lawrence Co. Indiana. 
She  was the wife of Elias Albert Terry,  son of John  Wylie  and 
Martha  Ann (Fletcher) Terry.  Sarah Jane Terry died 11 September 
1915 in Parkin, Cross Co., Arkansas.

=================================================================
  THE TERRY FAMILY OF ST. TAMMANY AND TANGIAPAHOA PARISHES, LA.
    from Mrs. R. L. Coffman 1326 Canary Lane, Seguin TX 78155
     The  Terry family of St.  Tammany and Tangiapahoa  Parishes, 
Louisiana,  trace their ancestry back to Thomas Terry,  who  with 
two  brothers,  Richard and Robert,  came from England in 1635 on 
the ship "James" to New England.  They stayed in Massachusetts  a 
few years but few records can be found on them until they settled 
in Southold,  Suffolk County,  Long Island,  NY.  Richard was the 
first  of  the  brothers to come to  Southold,  which  was  about 
1650/55,  and Thomas followed a few years later.  Nothing more is 
known  of  Robert.  Thomas  and Richard Terry each  reared  large 
families  and lived the remainder of their lives in areas  around 
Southold and left many descendants,  many living in those vicini-
ties today.

     Seven  generations of our Terrys lived in Suffolk  Co.  Long 
Island. Thomas Conklin Terry and his wife, Elizabeth Dimon Terry, 
were the first of our Terrys to come to  Louisiana.  They,  along 
with  their children,  left Southold about 1819 and travelled  to 
Ohio  where they lived about twelve years.  They are found on the 
Richmond County,  Ohio, census for 1820 and 1830. By 1832 we find 
them in St.  Tammany Parish,  LA.  It is said they travelled down 
the Mississippi in their own flat boat,  carrying a boat load  of 
flour which they sold to other settlers in the St.  Tammany area. 
They soon settled in Pine Grove, St. Tammany Parish, where Thomas 
C.  Terry  and his son John Orrin,  engaged in farming and timber 
cutting.  The timber cutting grew into a thriving lumber business 
which  continued until the Civil War.  Thomas C.  Terry  and  his 
wife, Betsy, had nine children, although only five were living to 
make the move to Louisiana.  Their children were: Emily Ann, John 
Orrin,  Thomas Lodiwick,  Theodore Hackstaff, and Elizabeth Dimon 
(Betsey).  Thomas  Conklin Terry was appointed postmaster of  St. 
Tammany  Parish  in 1836 and held that office until his death  in 
1853,  although by then the parish was called Livingston. He died 
August 27,  1853, and his wife, Betsy, died two weeks later, both 
from yellow fever.

     John  Orrin Terry,  son of Thomas Conklin Terry  and   Betsy 
Terry,  continued  in  the timber business and also  had  various 
businesses  in  New Orleans where he had  considerable  property, 
although he continued to live in St.  Tammany Parish, (later that 
section  was Livingston,  then Tangipahoa) until after the  Civil 
War.  He married Fruza Ann Marriner Nov.  16,  1832, and six sons 
were  born to them.  They were Theodore,  Thomas Marriner,  Orrin 
Finley,  Vetruvius,  Jerome Tuthill, and Julius Dimon Terry. Four 
of  these sons served in the Civil War.  Vetruvius was killed  in 
1863  at  the  Battle of Winchester;  Orrin Finley  lived  to  be 
seventy-six  years of age but suffered all his life  from  wounds 
received in the war;  Thomas Marriner was captured at Fredericks-
burg but was immediately exchanged and resumed fighting and was
Page (90)
 
subsequently  promoted to the office of  lieutenant-colonel.  His 
wife,  Fruza Ann,  died in 1849,  and in 1852,  John Orrin  Terry 
married  Mary Jane Simpson Collins,  a young widow.  Six children 
were born to them:  William Simpson,  Elizabeth  Dimon,  Augustus 
Theodore,  Mary Kate,  John Whittaker, and Carrie Earle. In their 
latter years, John Orrin Terry and Mary Jane made their home with 
their son,  William,  in New Orleans. John Orrin Terry died April 
23, 1895, in New Orleans, and is buried in Metairie Cemetery.

     Thomas Marriner Terry, son of John Orrin Terry and Fruza Ann 
Marriner Terry, was born Nov. 24, 1835, in St. TAmmany Parish. He 
married  Mary  Elizabeth Tucker,  daughter of Zelotes Tucker  and 
Nancy Wells Tucker.  Five children were born to them:  Orrin Fin-
ley,  Fruza  Marriner,  Clifford Penn,  Beula  Maud,  and  Julius 
Jerome.  Mary  Elizabeth Tucker Terry died in 1879,  and in 1881, 
Thomas  Terry  married  Elinor  Florence  Tucker,   daughter   of 
Nathaniel Warren Tucker and Nancy Marchbank, and who was a cousin 
of  his first wife.  Thomas M.  Terry was in the timber  business 
with  his father,  and also served as mayor of Ponchatoula for  a 
number  of years.  Children by his second marriage  were:  Elinor 
Florence, Bertie Errol, Thomas Marriner, and Wessie Ione.

     Theodore Terry died young. Orrin Finley Terry married Alcina 
Davis.  They lived in New Orleans. Jerome Terry moved to Beaumont 
where  he taught school.  Julius Dimon Terry married Elmira Nancy 
Gosselin.  He  was a farmer and a Methodist minister in  Artesia, 
NM. He and his wife, Nancy, reared eight children.

     Thomas Conklin Terry and Betsy Dimon Terry of  Southold,  NY 
have many descendants living in all parts of the country.SOURCES:

  (From a clipping from the New Orleans Time Picayune--no date)
     Thomas M.  Terry, a veteran of the Civil War and a gentleman 
well  known to a large part of the community,  died of congestion 
of the lungs yesterday afternoon,  August 19,  1895, at his resi-
dence on Thalia and Baronne Streets. 
     He was born on the 24th of November.  1835,  and was  conse-
quently  but  60 years of age.  His early life was passed in  St. 
Tammany Parish,  in which Pine Grove,  his native place is  situ-
ated.  He  engaged  in farming mainly until the beginning of  the 
Civil War,  when he promptly enlisted. He was mustered in at Camp 
Moore  by Lieutenant A.W.  Pope,  June 7,  1861,  and soon  after 
became  captain of a company attached to the Seventh Regiment  of 
Louisiana  Volunteers.  His  first duty was to guard the  baggage 
trains at Manassas and he occupied Camp Pickens for that purpose. 
He was subsequently stationed at Camp Winfall and Bienville, near 
the  Battlefield of Bull Run.  His regiment was then attached  to 
General Early's division,  and participated in all the campaigns
Page (91)
in which that prominent officer took part.

     Captain  Terry  was  promoted to be  Lieutenant  Colonel  on 
October 16,  1862,  and served in a regiment commanded by Colonel 
Penn.  He  was subsequently detailed with General  H.T.  Hays  to 
arrest fugitives from certain commands of the Army.  In 1864,  he 
was  promoted to be Colonel,  but in the tragic events that year, 
never received his commission, though exercising the functions of 
that office.

     After the war, he resumed farming in Tangipahoa and remained 
there till within the past ten years. Governor L.A. Wirtz appoin-
ted  him a Lieutenant Colonel of the militia and attached him  to 
his staff in December 1876.

     In 1881 Governor McEnery appointed him mayor of the town  of 
Ponchatoula,  whither  he had removed some time previously.  This 
office he filled for some years.  He then engaged in contracting, 
and  not meeting with success,  removed to the city.  His  recent 
life  has been passed in retirement and his death  occurred  very 
unexpected.

     Mr.  Terry  was twice married,  his wife surviving  him.  He 
leaves several children,  among whom are Clifford Terry, an elec-
trician,  Mr.  Julius  Terry,  Miss Beula Terry and Mrs.  Malcolm 
Terry.

     The  remains  will be removed at 8:30 this  morning  to  the 
Illinois Central Depot,  and sent to Ponchatoula, where they will 
be interred.

                          John W. Terry
     John W. Terry, engaged in the real estate business in Socor-
ro,  is a native of Illinois,  born in Jersey County, on the 12th 
of  October,  1836,  his  parents being Jasper M.  and  Mary  Ann 
(Waggoner)  Terry.  He supplemented his early educational  privi-
leges  by  study in Shurtleff College at  Alton,  Illinois,  from 
which  he graduated in 1861 with the degree of bachelor of  arts. 
Later he became a student in Colgate University at Hamilton,  New 
York, from which he won the Master of Arts degree in 1865, but in 
the  meantime he had rendered active service to his country as  a 
soldier  in the Civil War,  enlisting in  August,  1862.  He  was 
largely  instrumental in raising Company C of the One Hundred and 
Twenty-fourth Illinois Infantry, of which he became first lieute-
nant.  He was with Grant in Tennessee,  Louisiana and Mississippi 
until after the capitulation of Vicksburg, having participated in 
the  entire siege of the city,  his brigade in the center of  the 
line which took formal possession.
     Following his graduation from Shurtleff College,  Mr.  Terry 
was ordained to the Baptist ministry, and subsequent to the close 
of the war he continued his studies in the theological department 
of Colgate University.  He engaged in preaching at Madison, Indi-
ana,  and at Centralia,  Illinois, and for six months was associ-
ated  in church work with Professor William I.  Knapp in  Madrid, 
Spain.  This was in 1871.  In the meantime he had spent one year, 
1869-70,  in travel in Europe. In 1873 he went to Trinidad, Colo-
rado, and having retired from active work of the ministry he
Page (92)
formed  a partnership in the banking business with Colonel George 
R. Swallow. In the fall of 1879 he went to Kansas City, Missouri, 
where he conducted a real estate office,  and in December,  1881, 
he came to Socorro.  In the spring of 1882 he established a  bank 
here,  which  he conducted for three  and a half years,  and  has 
since  given  his  attention to the real estate business  and  to 
dealing  in live stock and alfalfa farms.  He organized  a  large 
stock  ranch in connection with the firm of Liggitt & Meyers,  of 
St.  Louis,  Missouri,  under  the name of the Magdalena  Land  & 
Cattle  Company,  but after about a year,  disposed of his inter-
ests,  in 1887.  His attention is now given to real estate opera-
tions.

     In 1874 Mr. Terry was married to Mary A. Bascom, a native of 
Rock Island,  Illinois.  Their children are :  Paul J., agent for 
Wells-Fargo  Express  Company at Ciudad Juarez;  John  Bascom,  a 
graduate  of the University of California of the class  of  1905, 
and  now chemist for the Standard Oil Company at Point  Richmond, 
and Helen, who is attending school in Painesville, Ohio.

     Mr.  Terry  has been prominent in community and  territorial 
interests  in  New Mexico.  He has served as county treasurer  of 
Socorro  County and a member of the city council of  Socorro.  He 
was a Lincoln Republican in earlier days,  stanchly upholding the 
administration  during the period of the Civil war,  and  he  now 
entertains liberal political views,  but has never been an active 
partisan.  He has,  however, served as chairman of the Republican 
county  central committee and of the county executive  committee. 
For  one  year  he served as justice of the peace  and  has  been 
president  of the board of regents of the School of Mines of  New 
Mexico.  He  was made a Mason in Trinidad,  Colorado,  but it not 
affiliated with the craft at the present time.

         TERRYS THICKER THAN COTTON IN LAWRENCE COUNTY:
   Thousands of Terrys Claim Ties to Pioneer Ancestor and Sons
               by Russ Roberts DAILY Staff Writer.
     The  two party system flourishes in  Lawrence  County--there 
are the Democrats and the Terrys.
     And  if most of the Terrys are also Democrats,  that is  all 
right. The political party is less important than the last name.
     Terrys populate Lawrence County thicker than cotton.  Every-
one  in  the  county knows that because most of them  are  either 
Terrys themselves or are related to one.
     But where did they all come from?
Page (93)


 

      Records  of  the family's early  history  are  scarce.  Mrs. 
Pauline  Terry,  who knew probably more about the family  history 
than  any other Terry in recent history,  died just a few  months 
ago. Shortly before her death, her extensive collection of family 
records  was destroyed when the Big Nance Creek flooded her  home 
in Courtland.
     That leaves telling the Terry tale in the hands of a Moulton 
barber,  Tennis Terry, who says he is the great-great-grandson of 
John F. Terry, the first Terry to set foot in Lawrence County.
     By  combining information gathered from Mrs.  Pauline  Terry 
before her death and from Tennis Terry, a sometimes contradictory 
but  always fascinating sketch emerges of how a widow brought her 
young  sons to northern Alabama and laid the foundation  of  what 
was to become the institution in the country--the Terry clan.
     The  first  American  members of the Terry  family  came  to 
America from Ireland,  according to Mrs.  Pauline Terry--Scotland 
says Tennis. They settled first in North Carolina.
     One of these early Terrys,  Mrs.  Nancy Terry, gave birth to 
John  F.  Terry in 1805.  Following his birth,  she had at  least 
three other children.
     In the early part of the century,  Mrs.  Nancy Terry and her 
four  sons came to what is now Lawrence County.  Perhaps when the 
family  left  their home somewhere east the woman still  had  her 
husband,  but no one really knows what happened to  him.  Perhaps 
there were other children in the family. But the trip through the 
wilderness  was  not easy.  Possibly she had to bury her  husband 
along the way.
     Whether  there  were  four or five  brothers  is  uncertain. 
Before her death,  Mrs. Pauline Terry counted five brothers--John 
F.,  William,  George, Elijah and Star.No one actually knows what 
Star's real name was. His ancestors gave him the nickname because 
on Mrs.  Terry's documents,  every time there was a space for his 
signature, he drew a star.
     Tennis Terry said he believes there were only four brothers. 
He names John F. and Joseph but has no record of the names of the 
others.
     Tennis  Terry  said he has no idea what  brought  the  first 
Terrys to the Missouri Territory,  which this part of the country 
belonged to.
     "It  was mostly wooded so it would have been hard to  farm." 
Tennis  said.  "They  spent most of their  hunting,  fishing  and 
fighting  Indians.  That's why today you'll find a lot of us hunt 
and fish. We got it from them."
Page (94)
     The grave of John F.  Terry can be found found at the  Terry 
family  cemetery  on  the grounds of the United Terry  Club  near 
Loosiers Community.
     A.  Guy Terry,  Mrs.  Pauline Terry's husband, organized the 
club in 1950 and served as the first club president.
     The club is a dues paying group with as many as 1000 members 
paying dues of $5 annually. The only requirements for entrance is 
that  you either be a Terry or married to one.  The club  grounds 
are on 37 scenic acres where the Terrys first settled.
     Although some Terrys may say they are not related to another 
family  of  Terrys,  Tennis Terry said that every  Terry  in  the 
county is a descendent of one of the original five Terrys.
     Is being a Terry a political asset?
     Presently,  members  of  the Terry family control  a  county 
commission seat,  the sheriff's office, Hillsboro mayor and three 
Hillsboro  city  councilmen.  But more important is the block  of 
votes the family represents to persons outside the family.
     "If  a  candidate  gets half the Terry vote  that's  a  good 
start.  As  long  as he's a pretty good fellow,  if he's  a  good 
Christian, then he can count on the Terry vote."
     State and local politicians regularly attempt to woo Terry's 
at the annual Labor Day Terry club reunion.
     Tennis Terry says he can usually tell a Terry by the way  he 
looks, although he counts some 5,000 in the county.
     "Take old Dale Terry from Texas for example.  He didn't know 
there  were any Terry's around here,  but he found an old address 
that said Lawrence County,  Alabama. He called the courthouse and 
asked if there were any other Terry's around.  After he found out 
this is where most of us are, he decided to come see us."
     "I was in here cutting hair one day when in walks this  man. 
I'd  never  seen him before but here was something about  him,  I 
said, 'Mister, I don't know who you are but you're a Terry.' Sure 
enough it was Dale Terry."

The  following appeared in a  "DEAR ABBY" column.  It was sent to 
me by a GILL researcher named Flo Lovette.
     DEAR ABBY:  I was trying to tell my cousin that the children 
of  one's  first cousin are not second cousins,  they  are  first 
cousins  once removed,  and she said I was crazy.  I read this in      
your column not long ago, but unfortunately, I didn't clip it.
     Will you please explain the cousin relationship  again?  And 
this time go into the grandnephew, grandniece, and great-aunt and 
great-uncle  as  well as great-grand-aunt  and  great-grand-uncle 
relationship. Thank You
                                             NEEDS PROOF
     DEAR NEEDS:  The child of your parent's brother or sister is 
your first cousin. However, your first cousin's child is not your 
second cousin,  but your first cousin once removed.  The child of 
your first cousin once removed is your first cousin twice removed 
and his child is your first cousin three times removed.
     Your  second cousin is your grandparent's brother's (or sis-
ter's)  grandchild.  That  second cousin's child is  your  second 
cousin once removed,  his child your second cousin twice removed, 
and so on.
     And  your third cousin?  It's your great-grandparent's  bro-
ther's (or sister's) great-grandchild.  The third cousin's  child 
is your third cousin once removed, his child is your third cousin 
twice removed.
     The grandchild of your brother or sister is your grandnephew 
or grandniece.
     The sister or brother of your grandparent is your great-aunt 
or great-uncle.
     The  sister  or  brother of your great-grandparent  is  your 
great-grand-aunt or great-grand-uncle.
     Whew! Isn't this grand? Or is it great?

     On January 17, 1983 we went to Hatteras (NC) for an environ-
mental studies class. Our teacher was Bonnie Strawser, a Fish and 
Wildlife ranger.  We saw a film about different animals and a lot 
of  neat exhibits.  When we were done,  we ate a super lunch  and 
then the action began.

     Basketball?  We  played  the fourth and  fifth  grades  from 
Hattaras School.  The girls won their game;  Ocracoke 17 and Hat-
teras 6.  The Ocracoke boys also won their games; Ocracoke 13 and 
Hattaras 7.

     We  are  going  back February 22 and are going to  have  the 
class again.  This session will be about reptiles.  And,  we  are 
going to play them again and hope to beat them again.

                     JOHN TERRY OF VIRGINIA
                         by Francis Wynn
                  Box 6, Rt 3, Leander TX 78641
To the Terry Family Historian,
     I  am  very intrigued with one John Terry of the  Colony  of 
Virginia.  Though  I am mostly overruled by Terry  researchers  I 
think  that he is a good possibility for the immigrant and ances-
tor of the Caroline County, Virginia, Terrys.
     No.  I do not believe the following are of one John Terry. I 
only think there is a possibility that they might be one and  the 
same.

                              -----
     August 20,  1642 John Terry 300 acres due him for his  tran-
sportation  of six persons.  The location is not entirely distin-
guishable (to me) but apparently on Cany Creek in later  Glouces-
ter  County  derived from abstracts of other patents  using  John 
Terry's  land as a marking point.  (At that particular time there 
was an act prohibiting the settlement of land across the  Charles 
River. This felony act was revoked in 1649 and was then open to
Page (99)
settlement by John's heirs and others.)
     On  18  July 1646 Mary Terry of New  Pawquoson  appeared  in 
court  declaring  herself widow of John Terry.-----"have given  & 
sett  over & doe by theise presents give & sett over unto  Thomas

by my husband John Terry late deceaed one old cow blacks &  white

     In  a  report  there is record of a  report  of  the  cattle 
belonging to the orphans of John Terry.
                              -----
     Eleven  July 1666 abstract of land patent shows Thomas Terry 
now ownes land of John in Gloucester, County.
     The  fower  sonnes of Mary Terry would be of the proper  age 
and were certainly in a good location for one,  possibly  Thomas, 
to  have been the father of the earliest Terrys in Caroline Coun-
ty.
     Does anyone have other records on this John Terry? The fower 
sonnes?
     The  above  was found in abstracts  of  several  books.  The 
original  records  were  requested to be copied for me  from  the 
Virginia Archives.
     I  think  the Terry Family Historian is a  great  thing.  As 
above  I have pondered over a great deal and would like the opin-
ion of some other interested Terrys.
