The TFH was a big idea with a small beginning as I noted in the first few issues. It began as a chain letter which circulated between eight present TFH members who were researching Major Stephen Terry of Atlanta. I became frustrated at the length of time it took the letter to get back and also because it took so long for my queries to come out in the `Roots Cellar' of the Genealogical Helper. [I still take the GH as it is a necessity if you are serious about publishing or researching.]
We are beginning the fourth year of the Terry Family Historian and I think we have made some progress. I say we, because I certainly could not have begun to do all of this TERRY research single-handed. I believe we could safely say we have the largest concentration of Terry data in the U.S.
I wore out one typewriter and outgrew the computer that I had in the third year and just purchased one with more memory to handle the data I have been receiving. I still have four file drawers full of bits and scraps of paper and a growing inventory of TERRY publications. Some time ago I read a pamphlet by a genealogist who discouraged the use of computers because 'nobody wanted to sit around the Christmas tree with the family and look at computer print outs'. We do have some listings such as these and they do have their place in our research efforts; however, I also love to read those humorous stories like Bob Terry's continuing article "Covering the Terry-Tory". I always know it is forthcoming and can't wait to see the next one. [If I only had his gift for writing.]
The goals I set originally were to be entertaining and also to provide documentation for what was printed. I have always been in awe of Mrs. Bushnell's scholarly style and was influenced greatly by her Terry Records of Virginia. I also am not ashamed to say I modeled the TFH after the Arkansas Family Historian which is an old genealogical publication and I always found it quite entertaining. [Genealogical Publications come and go rather frequently.]
In later years I have tried to appeal to those Terry researchers outside of the South to share their research with us but have not been as successful as I would like. [I have not given up!] There is a small core of members who actually do the library and courthouse research required. Others, not unlike my own parents, are more passively interested and are enjoy reading the history of the different Terry Clans. We need both kinds of subscribers to make the publication successful, but the editor would like to see an increase in the "hard core" researchers.
I also wanted the TFH to be a place where Terry researchers could meet, in a fashion, and discuss what they have done and ask questions of others. I am so glad I asked questions of the senior members of the family, because some of them are no longer with us.--That information would have been lost. Even though I have increased the original price to cover costs, I think you can agree that the TFH is the best buy for the bucks. [You have a money back guarantee; and if not satisfied I will return your money plus postage for the return of the article in question.] I have been less than pleased with research paid for and done by other researchers on several occasions myself and vowed to give the members a publication they could relate to and feel that it was worthwhile. [I have had one subscription returned in three years so I guess the record speaks for itself.]
Problems & Advice
At the present time, we have about 200 members. I should note that I do the researching, ordering, typing, advertising and mailing chores myself. And this is just my "part time" duties. I also have family duties and a "full time job." [I should note that Emma helped me lick stamps on the recent postcard mail-outs--she's 4 going on 5. This explains why some of the stamps were upside down and folded over the back of the card. Good help is hard to find!]
While I have the paid membership, I also have questions from others about their research problems and am now getting
questions about computers and genealogy as well. My time is getting to be very limited and I cannot begin to answer the mail in a timely fashion. I am trying to develop a system that will at least print out names and addresses of those who have made inquiries about your particular Terry Clan. The bottom line is--I will try and get your questions in the TFH Query section and will try and answer eventually. When I get enough information to make an article that might help several people, I usually make a short out of it. If I am short on articles, I print what I have about my own family and this explains some of the South Carolina TERRY information. However, I do not want to give the impression that our publication is only for Southerners. My personal interest lies there as well as a majority of the members it seems.
My advice is to do your homework first. Get the census information, talk to senior Terry's relatives, go to the court house or library and copy what there is on TERRY's. Then share it with the membership in the TFH.
The Ahnentafel charts in the Query section which are preceded by "Terry Line of ...." will get you more responses I can assure you. But you need dates and places, and par- ticularly counties.
Future plans & Possible Solutions
If you would like to be a corresponding secretary for one of the Terry Clans please let me know. I would like to farm out some of the correspondence.
Should you want to write a regular feature on your particular family, please call or write. If you don't like writing please line up one of the senior members of family and do a tape recording and send that. If you still use a pen and pencil I will accept this as well.
If you have a computer, I notice your mailing labels and letters with the little dots, send a disk with your informa- tion and I'll return it. I have access to a machine to read most CPM formats and I work at a Computer store and have access to Big Blue formats and Fruit type computers.
If you have a telephone modem hooked to your computer I plan to put all of the Terry data on line for TFH members. The program should be able to run unattended when I get all of the equipment.--Another wonder of the Computer Age. I will have to continue charging for paper copies and will gladly continue to provide what I have. However, I should note I am in the process of changing my text files to another disk format.
I'm now getting off of my soapbox and returning to the typing mode and the TFH for March 1985.

I was notified prior to the December 1984 issue that Mrs. William Still Morris had lost her husband February 18, of last year . The editor has for several years been exchanging Morris-Terry information with Bill and Corrie re: Stephen Terry d. 1769 and his daughter Sarah Terry who m. William Morris of Turkey Creek SC. Most recently, I received a note from Corrie and she indicated she is working on the Morris-Terry genealogy again and may have some leads on the Thomas Morris family.

JASPER TERRY OF MONTGOMERY CO. VIRGINIA
Notes submitted by Mrs. Valerie Whitlow Terry Rt. 3, Box 154, Princeton WV 24740
I was quite pleased to see my Terry lineage published in the December 1984 issue of the Terry Family Historian. Thanks also for your editor's note. However, I was aware of the Jasper Terry will in Montgomery County, Virginia. The problem there is that the wife mentioned is not the mother of the children;, but a widow Jasper married sometime after their births. Jasper was married three or possibly four times and it hasn't been proven which wife or wives were the mothers to the children. Maybe someone else has some information that will bear on this, but so far everyone I have contacted seems to be unsure. I am enclosing a copy of the Jasper Terry will, transcribed to the best of my ability from my copy. You will notice that the third daughter mentioned is not Karen Happuck, but Karon Happuck Rose. She was married to Joseph Rose 21 Dec 1813 in Montgomery County, VA. The unusual first name, Karonhappuch, is probably what caused the confusion. Jasper named his three daughters after Job's three daughters in the Bible (see Job 42:14). I obtained much of this information from Mrs. Jean Deweese Cordts, so I'm not sure exactly how the mix-up came about on the name of Karonhappuch Rose. This may or may not be of help, but I thought you'd want to keep your records straight.

COVERING THE TERRY-TORY
By Robert W. Terry 4900 Springdale Rd., Cincinnati OH 45247
Most of us go through life "unsung", and that includes Terrys.
Yet, I have evidence that a composer once wrote a song and dedicated it to Captain Robert W. Terry, pilot and later captain of Ohio River steamboats about the time of the War Between the States, or Civil War.
The evidence came to me from a thoughtful friend, who saw the song in a current publication for riverboat buffs, persons who treasure accounts of "rollin" down the river" on ornate passenger craft.
Title of the song is "Down the River We Swiftly Glide," a melody reminiscent of "Over the River and Through the Woods To Grandmother's House We Go." It is safe to say that it never made whatever "charts" existed in the 1860's.
Composer was one Nelson Kneass and the song was published either in Cincinnati by A. C. Peters & Bro. or in St. Louis, MO by J. L. Peters & Bro.
Capt. Robt. W., according to an accompanying article with the song, had been a pilot and mate on Ohio River steamboats prior to 1864. Late in that year, he and J. A. Stonebreaker, purser on river craft, bought the side-wheeler Robert Burns, built in Cincinnati at Eversoll's Yard for the original owners, Capt. George W. Ebert and purser Standish Peppard, both of Georgetown, PA.
The Robert Burns ran up and down the rivers as an independent, competing with the regularly established Cincinnati & Memphis Packet Co., which operated several boats. In fact, the latter firm acquired the Robert Burns in 1866 and Capt. Robert W. may have retired or found other employment.
I have been unable to determine additional information, and I still wonder at the composer`s tribute to Capt. Robert W., who apparently ran the boat for two years or less.
Composer Nelson Kneass may not rank with the Bachs, Strauss family, Leroy Anderson or John Williams, but I'll say this for him -- he wrote a piano score that would tax the right hand dexterity of any pianist, living or dead.
This incident was one of those blind alleys that sidetrack one's genealogical pursuits. In reply to my request for any additional information on my namesake, the publisher of the riverboat magazine informed me:
"Absolutely no information."
Since my distant ancestors appear to have tilled the soil as farmers, I see no personal connection to the riverboat captain. I'm still working on their possible employment as fishermen and whalers along the East Coast of the colonies.
Yet, each time I cross the Ohio River here in Cincinnati and see the immense tows and other craft, I wonder whether Captain Robert W. might have run away from the farm as a boy, and instead of joining the circus, took to the river.

BYRD TERRY FAMILY
Submitted by Mrs. A. J. Morgan Rt. 2, Box 61 B, Bruce MS 38915
I do not know much about Terry in Texas but have learned some this year. The earliest is of William Terry 1809-1888 who is buried at Prairie Lea, Texas beside Mittie Terry, who was his grandson, Byrd Terry's wife.
Byrd was my husband's grandfather and Mittie his grandmother. This William had a son William also, who was Byrd's father.
According to information in the 1900 Yalabusha Co., MS Census, Byrd's father was born in NC and mother in SC. Byrd was born in AL as was 1st Mittie King and his 2nd wife Pathenia Chadwick. Byrd came to MS around 1900 and lived near relatives of his 2nd wife. Mittie and "Thenia" were cousins, and I believe 1st cousins. I think Thenia was born in Russell Co. AL....
Byrd had a son William Gary who lived in Yalobusha Co. MS and had a large family. Some of Wm. G.'s grandsons & families still live in Yalabusha Co. MS near Water Valley. Byrd Terry gave Census taker information in 1900 Census that
his father was born in NC and mother in SC. Much later he said his father was born in GA (he was old and sick then).... Byrd had a cousin Walter or Uncle. My husband's mother visited cousins in Texas in 1950. She had a cousin Ves Terry who lived in Sudan, TX. He came to MS in 1969 to visit him. Ves & wife Gladys have two sons, Bill & Bob. They live in AR & NM. Cousins here say Texas is full of Terrys....We went to the Cemetery at Prairie Lea and saw the tombs of Wm. Terry 1809-1888 and Mittie Terry 1857-1893.
I have finally learned for sure that census info is not always correct but I've had to start with that and many times it is correct. I suspect that Byrd Terry's name may be something other than Byrd. He is "BY" in some church records. Pathenia had four names, I've learned recently. Uncle Wm. (Will) Gary Terry m. Johnny Porter and they had 9 children that lived to be grown & married and had children. His oldest lives near Water Valley about 17 miles from us. She was born in 1900. Others live in Memphis, TN....I hope to hear from you.

Note: Mr. Terry's age was given as 73 in the above obit- uary, but he told me he was 75 (that was on October 16th, 1984). Mr. Carl Beach Terry, was the son of Franklin Lanier Terry and wife Katherine Land. He was the grandson of George Washington Terry and his wife Elizabeth Lanier, from Atlanta, Georgia. He was the great grandson of Stephen Terry and Elizabeth Harrison Hill, both of South Carolina.... I am en- closing a copy of the obituary of Mr. Carl B. Terry with some notes for your file...as you say "Get Terryfied..but DON'T GO OVER THE HILL." ....Regards from Robert Hill.

Have you seen a copy of the 1985 "The Hartford"
calendar? There is a picture of Eliphalet Terry. The date is Dec 16, 1835, New York City.
Paragraph at the bottom reads: "On December 16, 1835, a raging fire destroyed half of New York City. Hartford President Eliphalet Terry set out from Hartford, Ct., in a horse-drawn sleigh to personally pay claims at the scene of the disaster. As a result of the pace-setting performance of President Terry, agent William Walker & others, public confidence in The Hartford blossomed."
On June 4, 1835 Eliphalet Terry was elected Hartford President.
At the bottom of the page of June 1985 reads: "On June 27, 1810, the first stockholders' meeting of The Hartford Fire Insurance Company was held at Ransom's Inn on the banks of the Connecticut River. Nathaniel Terry was elected presi- dent and Walter Mitchell was elected secretary." Nathaniel's signature is also on page for June.
You may have seen the calendar, but just in case you haven't I thought I'd let you know about it. Quite interes- ting to me to see the name TERRY anywhere...Betty Martin.

....I intended to send the check for 6 months or more. Like everything else, I wait till I have to make a special trip, so to speak...."Forgetfulness is one of those signs of getting old. I forgot what the other two are". [Picked out from a letter from Earl T. Terry, 888 Nadine Ave., Eugene OR 97404.]
I have a computer to check spelling but not grammar. It also does not check words typed twice, words missing, or nonsensical words. It does everything but type itself which still largely involves me, the editor.--Case in point--George A. Terry of Goodlettsville TN has a street address on page 163 of the Dec 84 TFH which should be 304 Highland Heights, Goodlettsville TN 37092. Nothing misspelled, but he won't get the mail. Mr. Harold Sears, 8104 Jefferson, Kansas City MO 66114 was kind enough to point out that his mail was returned in a phone call. Thanks for pointing out my glaring [literally] errors. --The Editor.

SCOUTS GIVE CEMETERY A FACE LIFT: Vandals, weeds had spoiled site.
by Elizabeth Eckstein, staff writer of The News.
MESQUITE -- The old Aunt Abby Frost Cemetery has been given new life.
The century-old cemetery, covered for years by bramble and trash, has been cleared and cleaned.
Cub Scout Pack 149 has been working since April, when pack leader Barbara Howell noticed the sun glinting off a tombstone obscured by overgrowth and stopped her car to investigate.
In the weeks since, the 27 Wolves, Bears and Bobcats in the pack -- with the help of Mrs. Howell, her husband Ben and several concerned residents -- have cleared brush and bramble, pulled down dead trees and righted and repaired the tombstones marking the graves of a dozen Mesquite Pioneers, including a veteran of the Civil War.
"We thought, when we first came out here, it'd be just a spooky old cemetery," Tim Duke, 9, said.
Behind him, 11-year-old Carl Bowen pantomimed a hand reaching from a grave to clasp Tim's ankle. Both shrieked and laughed.
"But we had the courage to clean it up, and it's beautiful now," Charles Jackson, 8, said.
Mrs. Howell said some Eastfield College students cleaned up the cemetery eight or nine years ago but that the bramble had retaken the cemetery. Most of the wooden crosses the students placed on the graves rotted, she said.
Vandals were responsible for most of the trash and damage to the tombstones, she said, and the Mesquite police have been asked to watch the cemetery more closely.
The Scouts ages 8 to 11, found the tombstone of Rachel Beckner --born April 20, 1824; died Aug 28, 1862 broken into two pieces and lying a few feet from the foot marker. It was repaired by Ben Howell, righted and replaced.
As part of the cemetery tour, Scouts pointed out the grave of the Civil War veteran: "Isaac Newton Terry -- born Jan 29, 1836; died Oct 12, 1889."
Mrs. Howell discovered through genealogy and census records that he fought in the Civil War.
Records also showed that those buried in the cemetery were neighbors in what would become the City of Mesquite, and Mrs. Howell likes to speculate that they arrived together in a wagon train from Tennessee or Kentucky.
As finishing touches for he cemetery, rose bushes and irises were planted, a fence erected and curb, concrete steps and flagpole base poured.
A bare pole stands ready for a historical marker that the pack has requested from the state.
During a ceremony at 7 p. m. Tuesday, U.S. and Texas flags will be raised over the cemetery on Belt Line Road near Bruton Road.
Old Aunt Abby would be proud.

JOHN TERRY OF NORWICH, ENGLAND 1523
Peggy Thomas of 1118 Horizon Trail, Richardson TX 75081 wrote: Finally found the information sheet on the brass I copied from Westminister in London. It caught my eye because of my husband's name "John Terry Thomas". He's actually the "cousin" to you. My relation is by marriage only but I feel I'm a "Terry" too. Fondest regards, Peggy.
1524 St. John Maddermarket, Norwich
A description of the brass indicates that John and Lettys Terry and their two sons and daughters are on the face. It was done in 1524 for John who was the mayor of the City of Norwich in 1523. The plaque shows the coat of arms of the city and of the Mercers of London and the initials I. T. The article indicates that he was not a member of the Mercers Company and had no right to use the arms in the way he did.

NOTES ON A TERRY FAMILY OF MICHIGAN
by Frances Evelyn (Terry) Kelley 306 W. West St., Sturgis MI 49091
I haven't taken the time before this to write about the Terry side of my family. My fathers name was Edwin Frank Terry, born in Coopersville, Michigan May 30, 1875. His father's name was Lyman Terry. His mother's name was Armenia Minerva Mapes or Bostick or both. My mother said she had been married to an Indian before she married Lyman. Lyman had a brother Harvey Terry, he lived in Coopersville too. My father had a sister Etta and a brother Elmer. My father married my mother Sarah Amanda Nayant about 1900. My brother Clarence was born March 4, 1902, my sister Esther October 28, 1904 and my birth date is February 6, 1914. My brother Edwin L. Terry was born Jun 15, 1918. Clarence is deceased. Elmer Terry was married to Margaret, they had a daughter Mable who was married and living in Grand Rapids, but I don't know if she is still alive. Her married name is Merron.
I was 16 years old when my mother died and we lost touch with our relatives. I think the Terry's came from the eastern states;, perhaps New York. I had joined a genealogy class recently at our High School, but had to give it up because my husband became ill and is in a hospital. I hope I can get back to it before it ends. We were gong to the Fort Wayne, IN Library where they have many records. I have enjoyed reading the Terry F. Historian, it seems there are lots of Terrys in the Southern States.

NOTES ON TERRY'S OF VIRGINIA PAST AND PRESENT
By W. Sanford Terry, Jr., P. O. Box 13032, Richmond VA 23225.
We are anxiously expecting our second child in February and if a boy will name him Barton Harrison Terry. This name may be the key to my line and missing records. Barton Terry was the grandson of Champness Terry of Louisa, VA. but 100 years earlier in 1699, the name appeared on a petition to the Governor of Virginia.
Also, the ancestor immigrant 1635 was Andrew Terry (VA) and living one generation after him was Andrew Barton Terry. The Harrison name comes from my wife's family, the James River Harrison's including two Presidents of our country.
I have more updated information for you but haven't had the time to write it up properly. In addition, have a lead and contact with individuals with access to Terry research
never organized or published.
My most interesting recent study has been that of the legendary Col. B. F. (Frank) Terry, C. S. A. organizer and leader of the 8th Texas Cavalry, C. S. A. known as Terry's Texas Rangers! Please find the enclosed renewal for the TFH, which I have thoroughly devoured and enjoyed.

NOTES ON WASHINGTON COUNTY ARKANSAS TERRY'S
Mrs. Bob L. Cook, 306 Butts St. Holdenville, OK 74848
I have a TERRY in my family tree, but am having difficulty trying top find a place to start on her.
She was Nancy Terry who married William T. Harp. The first account I find of her is in Fayetteville, Washington Co. AR in 1862 where they owned land. A deed was witnessed by William Terry. Nancy was the mother of my great-grandmother Angelina (Harp) Boyd. [She was married to John B. Boyd in Cedar Vale, Chant? Co. Kansas.]
I also have a postal card from Purdy, MO 1880 signed M. M. (Terry) Martin -- mentions her father's dying (Terry?) and her mother still alive. I thought maybe you've run into this name?

TROUBLES OF A BAPTIST MINISTER - 1776
Anson County in 1776 was a scene of turmoil. With most of the Tory leaders in jail in Virginia or Philadelphia as a result of the Battle of Moores Creek Bridge and Whig extrem- ists exhorting their views to all who would listen, it was not safe to utter any words or perform any act that would even imply Tory sympathies. In such an atmosphere it was not difficult for one to twist the meaning of another's utter- ances and cause great trouble. Such is what happened to James Terry, Jr.
James Terry, Jr., was a Newlight Baptist preacher in Anson County. Terry was an ardent Whig, but he also felt himself a realist. On 1 Sep 1776, while riding through the woods with John Allen, he told Allen the inhabitants of Quebec and Florida were all Tories, that the King had possession of these and had a right to do with them as he felt and that we had to fight it out in the middle between them. He added, "If the King cannot subdue us, he may sell claim to us to some other Nation".
Terry thought no more of the conversation until the 14th of October, when he was at the house of William Pickett. There was a gathering of people at the house and sometime in the evening Terry asked Pickett, Capt. Walton Harris, Burwell Lanier and James Allen to go with him to one of the upper rooms. There they met John Allen, who turned on Terry and said he was very prejudiced against Terry, for Terry's comments of September. Terry told John Allen he was sorry Allen was dissatisfied with him on that account. Terry said further, "I did not speak those words out of any disaffection to the American Cause, but that it was the truth. We have gone from the King and not the King from us, our going from the King did not disannul his right to us. For if we had a Negro that runs away, his running away does not disannul our Right to him. WE should have a right to sell the same Negro to any Person that would buy him". Terry continued, "The King
has a Right to sell us to the Turks or any other nation, on half for conquering the whole. He has a Right to sell us to the Turks or any other nation for Servants or Slaves". John Allen and Lanier discussed this concept further with Terry. Finally Burwell Lanier acknowledged himself satisfied that there was nothing really hurtful to the American Cause in these statements.
John Allen was apparently not satisfied and went to Samuel Spencer who was chairman of the Anson County Committee of Surety, Intelligence and Observation. Concerned that Terry's remarks might cause some people to become disaffected with the American Cause, Spencer held a hearing before the Committee on 26 October. At this hearing they questioned Terry and Capt. Walton Harris as to what had been said. Feeling additional testimony was needed, Spencer adjourned the hearing until the 6th November. At the second hearing Burwell Lanier gave his testimony as to the conversation. Even under intense cross-examination Terry would not change his opinion. At the conclusion of the hearing, which lasted until dark, Spencer felt action in the matter should be handled by the Provincial Congress which was to convene in Halifax, North Carolina, the 10th of November. It is very likely Terry was confined to jail because he obstinately refused to provide any surety that would guarantee his appearance before the Provincial Congress.
Being fully cognizant that, with the tenor of the times he would be caused a great deal of injury, James Terry, Jr., procured affidavits from a number of individuals stressing his devotion to the American Cause. Both Shd. Hogan and D. Smith pointed out that in February 1775 John Colson, accompanied by Governor Martin's waiting man, got up before a large crowd in Anson County and read a letter from the Governor applauding Colson's loyalty and protesting the actions of the Provincial Congress and the Committees of Safety. Following this action Colson proceeded to urge the people to sign the protest. At this point, Terry stepped up to Colson and told him, "I think the King and Parliament are both wrong and they are about to open the door to oppress- ion." Terry continued along the same vein emphasizing the justness of the American Cause. Because of his arguments, Terry dissuaded a large number of people from signing the protest. Terry continued to argue on behalf of the cause of Liberty both publicly and privately.
In July 1775 a gathering was held at Anson County Courthouse to have a day of Fasting and Prayer at the request of the Committee of South Carolina to implore the Almighty's blessings on the American Cause. In a conversation between Terry and William Moody, Moody stated he was sorry that the
present distress of American had happened in this day. Terry immediately rejoined, "I'm glad it happened in my day that I might see what my Posterity has to depend upon". Then, at the request of the people, Terry offered prayer before the gathering praying for the success of America and gave God thanks that the dispute between our Mother Country and America happened in his day. Following the prayer Terry then began to talk to the gathering about the nature of the cause by proving the difficulties and hardships their forebears underwent to obtain the Freedom of America.
In early 1776 the Tories began to assemble, prior to their planned march to Wilmington, at Dry Creek. One Sunday while the Tories were encamped at Dry Creek James Terry Jr., was preaching at Little River Meeting House. During the course of the sermon several armed Tories rode up to the Meeting House. After the sermon they asked Terry to ride with them a little way because they wanted his advice concerning the then present disturbances. Terry, in company with James Auldman, rode a short way and advised the Tories not to go to the Scottish camps for Terry believed they were in the wrong. The Tories were not convinced and Terry went on his way. Auldman rode with the Tories a little further when one of the Tories stopped and turning to the others said, "I've a good mind to go back and take Terry and carry him to the King's camp". The Tory finally decided that maybe Terry advised them for their own good and left him alone.
On the 23rd November 1776 the Provincial Congress received the signed oath of James Terry, Jr., stating: "I will bear faith and true Allegiance to the Independent State of North Carolina and I will to the Utmost of my Powers maintain, support & defend the same against the forces of Great Britain and all other Enemies of the Independent States of America and this I do most solemnly swear without any Equivocation, mental Evasion or secret Reservation whatsoever". With this Terry was allowed to return to his peaceful ministrations to the people of Anson County.
(I should mention that Terry later represented Anson County in the General Assembly, but that is another Story.)

Your address was in the Kansas City paper recently, concerning your research into families with the last name Terry.
I am looking for the records of a VIRGINIA TERRY who owned property in LaPorte, TX (Harris CO.) in 1923. That is when she bought it. She died, but I don't know when, leaving the property to her child, Ellery Terry, a minor. When Ellery was about 17 years old (1937), the property was sold to my father, Dr. D. R. Aves. Ellery's guardian handled the sale.
My father and mother both died more than 30 years ago and now my sisters and I have a chance to sell the property. However, the title company will not issue a guaranteed title unless we can come up with a copy of Virginia Terry's will, leaving the land to Ellery Terry.
With the above sketchy information,how can I find out more about Virginia Terry? The Harris County Court house could not help without a date of death. Do you have information that would be useful, such as:
1. Date and place of death of Virginia Terry, born somewhere around 1900, and/or
2. Married name of Ellery Terry, born about 1920, and her present address if still living.
[She noted]....I am willing to pay a reasonable fee. Thank you for your time. Laura M. Curry, 4229 Campbell, Kansas City MO 64110.

NOTES ON DESCENDANTS OF CURTIS TERRY
By Colleen Belk, P. O. Box 25, Duenweg, MO 64841-0025
My great grandmother Eliza Jane Terry was the daughter of Jesse K. Terry. Jesse was killed when she was 9 years old. She witnessed his death---. He was accused of being a Southern sympathizer [which he was!]
Eliza spoke of her "Uncle Brazewell"in her late years telling that he was the one in the family that [was] Yankee minded in his talk--and it caused hard feelings. After the War Uncle Brazewell and his wife came to Jasper Co. MO--and stopped briefly--after he learned of Jesse's tragic death he just "went away on to Texas."--
It took some time to find any record of Brazewell and I firmly believe this James B. Terry is that man. Do you think the initials in the corner of the page are V. M. or N. M.? James Brazewell Terry b. 1831 was the son of Curtis Terry and
Elizabeth Kuykendall. James married Amanda Pearson. The family story I'd heard was that he had "gone to Texas." I am interested in the record mostly because it gives his description. He was the brother to my great-great grandfather Jesse K. Terry. Eliza Jane Terry Webb Bigger lived in North Enid, OK in the years of the 1930's--with her older son Jesse Thomas Webb and his family. He lived on the Biggs place.

LUCILLE LESUEUR **ALIAS** JOAN CRAWFORD
Borrowed from Terry and Allied Families, Vol. I, by Frances Terry Ingmire. Second edition. 1983. Page 34.
The youthful symbol of Hollywood, was born in San Antonio, Texas, March 23, 1908. Her first marriage was to actor, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. This marriage lasted four years. Her second marriage was to actor, Franchot Tone. This marriage lasted about four years. She then married husband number three, actor Phillip Terry (relationship, if any, unknown). This marriage ended in about four years. Joan married husband four, on May 10, 1955, the love of her life, Mr. Alfred N. Steel, President of Pepsi-Cola Company. He passed away in 1959, four years after they were married. She is superstitious about the number four from incidents involving the 4's above. Can anyone blame her?
Joan quit school at the age of eleven; later, having her high school records forged, so she could attend college, after which, she entered show business, a career which spans some 47 years plus, having made in excess of eighty outstanding films.
Joan had four adopted children. Her will left her estate to two twin daughters, the other two children were disinherited. Her will states reason as, "Known only to them".
Joan Crawford, was one of our greatest movie actresses and one we can be very proud of.
Her great-grandfather and great-grandmother, are buried in the Camp Creek Cemetery, located on Route #615, about 6.5 miles northeast of the town of Floyd, Virginia, on what is
known as the Old Christianburg Road. The cemetery is on a hilltop and on the left side of the road. The oldest grave in this cemetery is dated 1887.

PARSHALL TERRY: Father and Son
I have always been intrigued by the story of one Parshall Terry Jr. and his father Parshall Terry Sr. Both of whom found themselves on different sides of the fence during the Revolutionary War.
Parshall Terry Jr., baptized 22 Feb 1756, was the son of Parshall Terry Sr. and Deborah Clark. He was noted to have been at the battle of Wyoming, known as the Wyoming Massacre, in July, 1778.
He is said to have been a member of the First Westmoreland Independent Company in 1776 and served with Washington's army for some time.
The story, as it goes, is he stopped to tie his shoe and was reprimanded by an officer. He was struck with a sword by the officer and as a result knocked the officer down and fled. It was noted he deserted January 11, 1777.
Later he joined the British Army and became a Lieutenant in Butler's Rangers, Royal Greens.
The story further indicates that Parshall Terry, Sr. and his other sons were on the side of the Colonials in the same battle; reports were later generated that he had killed his father, mother and brothers and sisters during the battle. Captain Jonathan Terry, his brother, later testified that these reports were false and his brother, Parshall Jr., had come to the Fort to save their lives..."My father, has survived many years, and died among his friends in this place [Terrytown, PA?] in good old age."
His sister, Deborah Terry Horton, spoke of him in less kind words and noted she saw her "Tory" brother stand by while Indians cut her father's shoes off his feet.
A more moderate view of the family differences was noted in 1914 by a J. Washington Ingham, a great grandson of Parshall, Jr. who opined: "In justice to him it ought to be said that between him and the rest of the family, there were only political differences."
At the close of the Revolutionary War [1783 or 1789 by some accounts] Parshall Terry Jr. moved to Upper Canada, now Ontario, where he was given some large holdings by the Crown.
Tradition is, he was a member of the First Parliament for upper Canada, but this has not been verified.
Later descendants of this particular Terry Family clan migrated to Michigan, Illinois, and Utah. Several were prominent early members of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints.

Regarding the story of Albert TERRY, Page 179, December 1984 TFH, are there any records relating to Albert and family in New York listing the names of his brothers or the names of his parents from Berkshire Co. MA or family related to Albert's parents? My great-great grandmother, Zulpha / Zelpha / Zelphia TERRY was born at Lima, Livingston Co. NY ca. 1805. In my research, her name has been constantly linked with Albert, Julius, Hiram, Cassina TERRY. But, have not made exact relationships. She has been listed in the Botsford Genealogy as married to Elnathan Botsford ca. 1830-31. Elnathan died 1 Mar 1837, Livonia NY. There were two children born, William Hiram and George S. Zelphia moved to Ohio soon after the death of Elnathan; remarried Henry Williams. From this union were born six children, from which I am descended. Zelphia died 19 May 1891 at Palmyra, Otoe Co.

While in New Orleans in Oct I read your advertisement concerning the TERRY Family in the "Times Picayune". My great grandmother was Rebecca Jane TERRY (Haley) born in Lawrence Co.

My great grandfather died at Hugo, OK 1907....We attended the TERRY family reunion near Moulton, AL last Labor Day. There were over 1,000 people who were there--quite an experience.

I want to tell you what a fine job you are doing. I've taken other "Surname" publications and yours is by far the best. Where others seem to run out of material you seem to have more than enough. My line is George TERRY of Hanover & Charlotte Counties VA d. 3 Jan 1803 is so well recorded from George to me it is very strange that no one can find him before 1761. That his first wife was a Pettus is proved by John Pettus deeding George land "for love" but no guess his been made to who his parents are. I anyone else working on this branch of the TERRY family?

Also through Ephraim's son Nathaniel, Elizabeth (m. John Taylor), Harriet Taylor (m. Roderick). As I'm sure you are aware, I have been able to join numerous genealogical organizations on this line. I believe I have fairly complete information on the Terrys and most of the families they have married into, but I'm also sure that I would be interested in reading your publication.

I have a photo of her tombstone. I have heard there was a third child, Henry TERRY Jr., but I have no proof of this. Henry TERRY Sr. apparently died prior to 1790. His daughter, Sarah TERRY married John McDaniel and his daughter, Nancy McDaniel married Phillip McDaniel, the brother of John McDaniel.

260385 TERRY REEVE ROGERS MOORE
Mayflower Families Through Five Generations was published in 1983. It adds new information and confusion for TERRY researchers. They show Mary TERRY who married James Reeve ( -1698), as being descended from Thomas Rogers of
the Mayflower, via John Rogers, and Ann Rogers. Ann Rogers being the wife of Thomas TERRY Freetown, MA. Could this Thomas TERRY be the son of Thomas TERRY (1607-1672) of Southold, LI? The will of Thomas TERRY of Southold refers to " my daughter Mary Reeve", could he have been referring to a granddaughter as daughter? Any help with the above problems will be appreciated. Phillip J.

Part of the information came from "Upper SC Families" by Sara Schrin Article published in Greenville News, SC March 3, 1940.
[Editor's Note: As a point of information the editor would like to see some primary evidence that James Gideon TERRY is the son of William TERRY; also some primary evidence indicating Mary Elizabeth Gideon is the wife of William TERRY. My interest stems from my research in SC. While Thomas TERRY is mentioned in the Anderson Bible Record excerpts I have seen it seems to me that this is a reference to Thomas TERRY and Mary McDowell of Greenville-Laurens Counties, SC since the Anderson-Terry connection in that area is proven by legal documents. The other possibility could be the Thomas TERRY of Wilkes Co. GA? Is there more to the stubb indent for William TERRY than I have seen? It mentions no relationships as far as I can tell.]

I am enclosing a 5 generation sheet for my father, showing his North Carolina TERRY ancestors. He did a lot of family genealogy while he was living and I am taking over for him, but have hit a wall at James TERRY, 1755. I am wondering
if you have any information on this particular TERRY branch. I would appreciate any help you can give me. [Editor's note: The work that Jack R.

480385 TERRY HARRIS VIPPERMAN MCGRADY PENDLETON SEIGLER
I was glad to see the Bible record of my ancestor, Joseph Terry in the Sep 1984 TFH, page 120. I have a Xerox copy from the Bible and would like to make a couple of corrections.
To begin "Chesterfield Co. Va." as appears after Joseph and Thomas Terry's birth date does not appear in the Bible record. However, it is in Joseph Terry's Rev. War pension application, making it true fact.
On page 121--first line: James E. Terry should be Samuel
Second line: May Delpric'e should be Mary Delphia.
Seventh line: Edrea Ruth should be Edrie Ruth.
Twelfth line: (H. B Gerries) should be (H. B. Terries)
On page 122--first line: Elizabeth Harris should be Elizabeth B. Harris.
Second line: E. Harris should be E. B. Harris.
Line 17: James M. Viperman should be James M. Vipperman.
Line 18: Ruth McGrady Terry was born Oct 19, 1876.
Page 123--Line 4: Delshia should be Delphia.
Oops! I missed one: Page 122, 4th line of marriages-- William M. Terry and Jane Pendleton were married Jan 18th 1867 should be 1857. (William died 1862--see page 121.) When I have time, I will do a little more searching in the land of my ancestors. If I learn anything new. I'll send it along. Sincerely, Vera B. Seigler. Please note new address: Rt. 1, Box 201, Meadows of Dan VA 24120.

At the present time I do have a 300 baud modem, but no private line. Please write or call as I soon hope to be up and running as soon as I get a private line. I am starting very small and would appreciate donations to get the bulletin board off the ground. I have no idea concerning the cost involved but do need a faster modem, more memory and a hard disk so it can run unattended. I will put all the TERRY data on disks to share with members only. It will have a directory of items and you will be assigned an electronic mailbox. You will be able to leave a message as to what you want me to put in the computer for down-loading. [That is the best I can do now for now.] Please practice locally before you call long distance. It's cheaper -- The Editor.
