     Please get your articles and questions for insertion in 
the TFH to the editor at least 2 months prior to month of 
     If you can send your articles on computer disks in CPM 
format SS/DD [except Apple or Commodore] or IBM format DD/DD 
this would certainly speed up the editing process for me. 
Your disks will be returned. I can also copy information for 
you onto your disks in the former formats. If you have any 
questions on this call me.
     For those who wonder: I still hope to have a phone 
modem by the end of this year and possibly a hard disk 
depending on personal finances so we can start a TERRY 
BULLETIN BOARD. Just could not swing it in 1985. Editor.

                 * * * EDITOR'S NOTES * * *
     Well, off to another start for 1986. My goals for the 
coming year:
     1) I have personally been concentrating on South 
Carolina Terry Families and related lines and have made a 
commitment to unravel the Terrys in this state this year. I 
am also asking for volunteers to commit to do some census 
research or commit funds to have professional genealogists 
provide primary research in South Carolina. Hopefully, this 
will provide the links to several Terry families in the 
South. If you would like to be a part of the South Carolina 
task force please let me know. If you have any references to 
South Carolina Terrys or those that originated in South 
Carolina, please send them to the editor. You may contact me 
at 405-242-5158 in the evening. This includes: Bible 
records, census records, deeds, wills, inventories, 
marriages, family sheets, pedigree charts, cemetery records, 
old letters, narratives, etc.
     2) Concentration on publication of primary documents 
and records outside of the South.
     3) Updating and correcting Stephen Terry's Notes on 
Terry Families 1887.
     4) Publication of pedigree charts of members of the 
Terry Family Historian. An example is the editor's personal 
pedigree chart in this issue. WILL EVERYONE SEND A RECENT 
in the TFH by July 1, 1986! Also indicate your permission to 
print this chart with your address.
                         * * * * *
     My own personal attitude toward family sheets, pedigree 
charts, biographies, narratives, bible records is: They are 
useful for one purpose.-- To give us a road map to find 
primary records to prove relationships. Therefore, it is 
very important to include locations of particular date-
events i. e., parishes, counties, towns, and states on these 
sheets or other data. It is also important to identify very 
clearly what is the actual record and what is your personal 
comments in each case. This will allow others [at the 
present time or perhaps years from now] to pursue leads.
     If you send in a pedigree chart and someone challenges 
it, be prepared to back up your line with primary (legal) 
documentation, i. e., deeds, wills, estates, military birth 
and death records. Because the editor prints it in the TFH, 
does not necessarily indicate it is documented fact.

     What I do in the TFH is similar to putting together a 
puzzle. I am a collector of Terry Family "puzzle pieces". 
When I get a sufficient number of pieces and can see the 
outlines of a recognizable object in the puzzle, it becomes 
a short article in the TFH. The puzzle pieces isolated do 
not portray anything in themselves and the editor does have 
many single pieces to several incomplete Terry Family 
puzzles. These are all sizes, colors and shapes of little 
sheets of paper with and without documentation at times.
     I personally do not have a large library of primary 
records in Enid, Oklahoma. I do have access to a large 
collection of information sent by readers of the TFH over 
the years from across the United States. I try to print 
documents or articles in the TFH which give clues to 
relationships and heirs or relate to another geographical 
areas. These are most valuable to researchers.
     If you are not sure about your lineage, please use a 
generous number of the words "probably", "believed to be" in 
your records. Please do not be offended by myself or others 
should your assumptions be questioned. I personally will 
print a comment from time to time if I have evidence that 
casts doubt on your assumptions. This is particularly true 
in reference to Terry families in South Carolina, Georgia, 
Arkansas and Texas wherein lies my personal interest and 
     It is becoming impossible for me to answer mail on an 
individual or timely basis so I have tried to insure that 
your questions are published in the TFH and have tried to 
compensate with the December 1985 TFH issue which lists 
surnames that members have submitted in various queries over 
the last four years. In addition to this I have, from time 
to time, published indexes to the TFH which give some ideas 
to what was covered in that issue. There are particularly 
good notes on Edgefield, Chester, Laurens, Greenville, 
Fairfield Counties in South Carolina and Rockingham County, 
North Carolina in several issues. I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO 
PURCHASE BACK ISSUES as many of the questions I receive 
are answered in articles in those particular issues or in 
queries from readers. Any suggestions concerning the 
correspondence problem and how we might handle it better 
would certainly be appreciated. I know there is a great deal 
of interaction between members and the editor would 
appreciate a carbon copy or notations.
     In any event, you are most likely to receive 
correspondence from the editor if you send information that 
has never been included, covers a new area or family in 
TERRY RESEARCH, or adds information to a line of interest to 
several TFH members.

     I would encourage you to sit down and begin writing 
about yourself and preceding generations of your family for 
others. If you do not write, a tape recording is a good way 
to do this as well. I welcome any narratives that you might 
submit.--   Mike Terry, The Editor

                  COVERING THE TERRY-TORY
                     by Robert W. Terry

     I wonder how many of you TFH readers received an 
invitation last November to attend the "Historic Grand 
Reunion of the Terry's of Ireland."
     My invitation came from  Halbert's Inc. Heritage 
Travel, 3699 Ira Road, Bath, Ohio, U.S.A. 44210. It painted 
a rosy picture of the 10-day tour with such comments as 
     "You'll be feasted at medieval banquets and daily in 
country pubs rife with the tangy scent of peat fires and the 
eddy of Irish conversation and song."
     "You'll celebrate your Terry heritage when you meet 
privately with the Chief Herald of Ireland. He will present 
you with fascinating information about ancestor Terrys from 
the Irish side of the Atlantic."
     "You'll be an honored guest at a gala reunion banquet 
in Dublin, where the Terrys from the United States will 
celebrate their heritage with Terrys from Ireland."
     I failed to answer the invitations before the Dec. 11, 
1985 deadline for several reasons:
     1) Although the cost, $2195 per person, included 
everything but alcoholic beverages, it doesn't fit my 
     2) Like other Terry researchers, I lean to the belief 
that Terry may have been "Thierry" originally, of French or 
Norman origin.
     3) The reasoning presumes that Terrys went to England 
during or after the Norman Conquest in 1066, and that Terry 
migration to either Ireland, Scotland or Wales started in 


     4) Since my personal search for ancestors is bogged 
down in southern New Jersey, I don't know the overseas 
origin of my clan.
     Since the invitation said similar ones were going to 
"every Terry family in the United States that we can 
locate", I'm guessing that other TFH readers also received 
     Perhaps some of you will make the June 5-15 trip; if 
you do, take notes and send them to Mike Terry for 
publication here. We stay-at-homes realize that Mike is the 
"Grand Herald" of Terrys in the U. S. A.
     While I ponder the unkindness of the Ohio Lottery in 
not rewarding me with a sizable prize, I'm reminded of lines 
from a grammar school poem:
     "Of all sad words of tongue or pen,
     "The saddest are these: 'It Might Have Been.'"
                              ("Maude Muller")

     In my off-and-on years of research for my husband's 
TERRY ancestors, I have drawn the following conclusions. 
They cannot yet be authenticated, but one day the truth will 
be discovered.
     My father-in-law, Carlton Floyd TERRY, red-headed, with 
natural curl, and gray eyed, was the baby of twelve 
children. Therefore, he was the apple of his father's eye. 
(WILLIAM MARION TERRY) and gathered much oral history from 
     He related to me in the 1950's that his grandfather, 
PINCKNEY TERRY, came to Georgia from Texas -- a switch from 
the "goin' to Texas line. He had been in a war there. He had 
originally been from Virginia. All information I've been 
able to authenticate was that Pinckney TERRY was a farmer of 
48 in 1864 in Gwinnett County, Georgia, from Laurens County, 
     Mrs. Frances TERRY Hazelriggs (C. F. TERRY's sister) 
told me before her death that her grandfather's name was 
William Pinckney TERRY and that he had come originally from 
     In the "Shakerag" community of Forsyth/Gwinnett/Fulton 
Counties, GA, (right on the lines) is a monument to the old

cemetery to the soldiers who were with Fannin at Goliad 
during the war for Texan independence in 1836. In 
Lawrenceville, GA, (Gwinnett County) is a monument to two 
Gwinnett County men who fell at Goliad in 1836.
     In 1836 Pinckney TERRY would have been about 26 or 27 
years old, and the correct age to be a soldier.
     My surmise is that somehow he was in Fannin's troops, 
fought with them, and fortunately managed to escape the 
massacre, returning to Georgia where his family must have 
settled about the same time of the Gold Lottery. My further 
surmise is that his father was either Reverend Stephen 
TERRY, of Forsyth County, William TERRY, who owned a tavern 
license in Forsyth County, or Thomas TERRY. All three of 
these men were in Gwinnett County, GA, in 1820, and later 
were in Forsyth County after the 1832 Gold Lottery.
     There were many TERRY heads of households in this area 
in the 1830-1900 time span. Many of them were from Kentucky, 
some from SC, and some from Virginia. I believe, however, 
they were somehow related.
     On the following sheets, I am sending you all my 
research on the TERRY name, especially in Georgia. There is 
some little in other areas.
     I trust it will help you, or some other TERRY

     Prior to 1832 Forsyth County and all lands north of the 
Chatahoochee River belonged to the Cherokee Indians. 
Adjoining was Gwinnett County to the east of the river.
     The lands were opened up with a Gold Lottery in 1832. 
William I. TERRY and John TERRY, Jr., received lands in this 
     William received land in the 14th District, 2nd 
section, lots #311 and #323, right on the Chattahoochee

River and Gwinnett County line.
     John received lands in the 17th and 19th districts far 
to the west and north of the territory.

     NOTE: These two brothers did much to build Atlanta 
prior to the Civil War. Atlanta's first waterworks was built 
on Mr. Stephen TERRY's land. He suffered through the holo-
caust of the war and finally, being unable to stand any more 
it was reported he returned to South Carolina. [Editor's 
note: He may have returned at some time, but is buried in 
Lakewood Section of Atlanta near his home at the time.] The 
researcher has wondered a lot about this man and has won-
dered if he could possibly be the same Stephen TERRY buried 
in Forsyth County cemetery. [See note above, Editor.]
     The land upon which the Terry brothers farmed is in 
what is in 1986 is known as the Lakewood Section of Atlanta. 
The Southeastern fairs were held on this property for many, 
many years and now Bert Reynolds and other actors use the 
old exhibition buildings for making movies. Smoky and the 
Bandit and its sequel was filmed on the old Terry lands.

                      By S. C. Turnbo
     The writer has mentioned the Bull Bottom in these 
sketches on several occasions. As is well known in Marion 
County, Arkansas, this bottom is situated on the left bank 
of White River in Cedar Creek township. I am informed that 
George Weaver made the first settlement here. Weaver sold 
the improvements on this land to old man John Terry, the 
first settler on the Asa Yocum place and Mr. Terry gave the 
improvements to his sons Tom and Ron Terry. After Tom 
Terry's wife died and Wilshire Magness died Mr. Terry and 
Wilshire's widow were married in 1860 and lived in this 
bottom until ravages of cruel war forced them to abandon 
their home here. When Mr. Terry enlisted in the union army 
his wife whose name was Elizabeth was left alone with the 
children to contend against hardships, thieves and robbers. 
There were 6 children, Joe Magness and Bob Magness, children 
by her first man Wilshire Magness, and Joe Terry, Dump Terry 
and Mary Terry, which were Tom Terry's children by Mr. 
Terry's first wife who was a sister to Wilshire Magness, and 
Tom Terry an off spring of the marriage between Mr. Terry 
and Mrs. Magness the latter child was 6 months old. Mr. 
Terry's wife in describing the hardships she encountered in 
this bottom while her and the children were staying there 
alone said that one day two men who were horseback and well 
armed approached the house and rode up to the yard gate and 
stopped and demanded to know if she knew where any rebels 
were. She told them that she did not know anything about 
them. After they had repeated the inquiry a few times they 
reversed the questions put to her and they wanted to know if 
she knew where any feds were and she answered in the 
negative. The were very inquisitive and continued to ask her 
questions until they found that they could not obtain any 
information from her. They then backed their horses from the 
gate and reining them around as if they were going to ride 
off and stopped and held a whispered conversation and then 
they started off down toward the lower part of the bottom. I 
was convinced that they had gone off to procure help to rob 
the house and drive off the stock. I and Mr. Terry owned 
more than 100 head of cattle which Terry kept on the range 
in the hills of Music Creek. This was just after we were 
married, but in 1862 the land pirates taken all but a few of 
them and disposed of them. Mr. Isaiah Wilkerson who lived on 
Music Creek just above the mouth noticing that the principal 
part of the cattle had been stole he gathered up the 
remainder which included a few milk cows and drove them 
across the river where we could find them. The cows were 
giving milk and the milk from the cows kept the children 
from starving. After the two men had left I went to work 
with  a determination to save my stuff in the house and my

milk cows if I had to fight for the property and with the 
help of the children that was old enough to do anything I 
went to work and carried all our household stuff into the 
house that had only one door. I forgot to mention that there 
were two houses with a hall between them. Then I armed 
myself and the oldest children with something to fight with 
such as the chopping axe, hatchet, butcher knives, clubs and 
so on. Then I and the children sit down and waited for the 
return of the bandits and in a little while I saw the same 
two men coming  back driving the milk cows before them. I 
saw at once that it was their intention to steal all we had 
and I says, "Children, let us not let them scoundrels have 
an easy job taking our stuff from us." When they had reached 
near the cow lot gate with the cattle the calves began to 
bleat and the children began to cry for the little innocent 
and helpless children depended on the cows for a living and 
when they realized that the robbers intended to take the 
cattle from us we would all have to meet starvation and 
distress. My heart seemed to sink in despair for they had 
the power to drive them off but I had set a resolution that 
I would fight to the last moment to save the cows and my 
household. But what could I do to help myself, they would 
take all we had in sprite of all the efforts I could do to 
prevent it. The robbers were preparing to let the calves out 
to the cows to make ready to drive them off and about the 
moment I was ready to interfere with their theiveish plans a 
thought came into my mind that I might get rid of them 
before they had time to ride roughshod over me and the 
children and I put it into execution at once by snatching 
the dinner horn from where it was hanging on the wall in he 
hallway and blew a lout blast with it, then stopped a moment 
and blew it a second time then I hallooed at the top of my 
voice and used these words, "Here they are, come quick." 
Then I repeated the blowing of the horn and yelled out the 
same words. The two marauders seemed to be awfully surprised 
and remounted their horses and urging them into a gallop and 
run to the river bank and down it to the waters edge and 
plunged into the river and swam across to the opposite shore 
and up the bank they went beyond my view. As they were 
getting away I blew he horn and kept repeating he same words 
loud as he strength of my lungs would admit. I succeeded in 
bluffing them and saving my property from he rascals so far. 
No doubt they were fully convinced that a body of federal 
soldiers were nearby ready to pounce on them. I learned 
afterward that these men never stopped until they reached 
the John Knight cabin in the range of the Short Mountain 
which was used as a gathering place of a number of southern 
men in war days. In a short time after this I moved out into 
Missouri where I received better protection from the 
unwelcome bandits and guerrillas. Mrs. Elizabeth Terry, who 
after the death of Mr. Terry, married Henry Clark, died at 
her old home in the southeast part of Taney County,

Missouri, February 13, 1907, and was buried in the graveyard 
at Protem on the following day. 
     The first Tom Terry mentioned  in "How a Women Put Two 
Robbers To Flight" is a son of John Terry of Indiana. Tom 
first married Annie Magness and they had children: Joe, 
Thomas "Dump", and Mary. Annie died and he married Annies 
brothers', Wilshire Magness, widow, Nancy (Holt) Magness. 
Wilshire and Nancy had two sons,Joe and Robert "Bob" 
Magness. Then Tom and Nancy had one son, Thomas Terry. Tom 
was killed in the Civil War and Nancy later married Henry 
Clark.  Submitted by Betty Martin, 605 N. Robinson, Harrison

                 JOHN PEASE TERRY 1807-1886
     John Pease Terry, late of Portsmouth, was born in Coos 
County, New Hampshire, February 16, 1807.  His father, 
Charles Terry, was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, 
November 14, 1744, and died there May 19, 1815. He married 
Hulda, daughter of Ebenezer and Hulda (Pease) Pease, of 
Hartford, Connecticut, January 9, 1772. The children of 
Charles and Hulda (Pease) Terry were Charles, born September 
25, 1792; Horace, Born November 11, 1794; Hulda, December 7, 
1796; Henry, Harriet, married Horace Perkins, and resided at 
Port Byron, New York; Esther, married a Mr. Lake, and lived 
in Ontario county, New York; John P. (subject of sketch); 
George, married Sarah Jenkins, and lived at Winamac, 
     Samuel Terry, father of Charles, and grandfather of our 
subject, was born April 28, 1703, and died about 1759. He 
was married January 30, 1734, in Springfield, Massachusetts, 
to Sarah, daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Bridgman) Chapin, 
who was a native of Springfield, born February 18, 1707, and 
died January 25, 1773. Their children were Samuel, a 
shoemaker, born April 20, 1736, died April 1, 1802; Eli, 
born February 26, 1737, died at Locke, New York, in 1816; he 
married Elizabeth Olds, of Locke, New York, who died in 
1818; Sarah, born August 18, 1739; married Thomas Fairfield, 
of South Hadley, Massachusetts, May 3, 1759; Charles, Mary, 
born February 27, 1745, died November 4, 1804. She married, 
August 20, 1767, Preserved White, Jr., who was born November 
25, 1743, and died June 8, 1823. They lived in Springfield.

     Thomas Terry, great-grandfather of our subject, was 
born in Springfield, Massachusetts, March 6, 1664, and lived 
to be over eighty years old. His first marriage occurred at 
Springfield, Massachusetts, April 21, 1687, to Mary, 
daughter of Benjamin and Sarah Cooley. She was born June 29, 
1659, and died December 16, 1720. Their children were: Mary, 
married John Lombard; Ann, married Joseph Younglove; Bethia, 
married Henry Burt; Thomas, married Martha Miller; Rebecca, 
married John Brooks; and Samuel.
     Samuel Terry, the immigrant, was the father of Thomas, 
and the founder of the American branch of the family. He was 
born about the year 1633, in Barnet, England, which is 
eleven miles from London. The Hon. William Pynchon, of 
Springfield, Massachusetts, visited England in the early 
part of 1650, and there received as an apprentice the boy 
Samuel Terry, and brought him to New England. On the arrival 
in Massachusetts of Mr. Pynchon, he became involved with the 
Colonial authorities on account of his theological views, 
and for this reason left the country the next year. Young 
Terry was then (October 15, 1650) apprenticed to Benjamin 
Cooley, a weaver, of Springfield, Massachusetts. January 3, 
1660, he married Ann Lobdell. She died in May, 1684. 
November 19, 1690, he married Sarah, widow of John Scott, 
and daughter of Thomas and Margaret Bliss. There were no 
children by this marriage.  The children of Samuel and Ann 
(Lobdell) Terry were: Samuel. first married Hannah Morgan, 
and second, Margaret, widow of Benjamin Crane, Jr.; Ephraim, 
who was "drowned in ye great river at ye wharf," at 
Springfield, Massachusetts, when but seven years old; 
Thomas; Mary married Jeremiah Horton, Jr.; an infant 
daughter; Ephraim, married Hannah Eggleston; Rebecca, named 
for deceased sister, married Alex Wright; Elizabeth; and 
Ann, who married John Bliss.
     The European ancestry of our subject may be traced to 
John Terry, of England, who lived in the first half of the 
seventeenth century. Charles Terry, father of our subject, 
moved from Connecticut to New Hampshire, where he resided 
for three years. He then took his family to Oneida county, 
New York, where he remained for one year, and then moved to 
Ontario, now Wayne county, and purchased a farm in the 
wilderness. Assisted by his growing sons he cleared this 
tract. He died in 1814 from the effect of a gunshot wound 
received at the battle of Sodus Point, on Lake Ontario, 
having served two years as a soldier in the war of 1812.
     Shortly after his father's death the subject of this 
sketch was bound out to a farmer, and remained with him 
until nineteen years old. He then determined to go West, and 
with a single dollar in his pocket, given him by his mother, 
he started down the Genesee river, walking a distance of

forty miles to its mouth. He then proceeded by boat to the 
mouth of the Niagra river, and having spent the last penny 
of the dollar, he stopped and cut wood for a time in order 
to get some cash. He next proceeded to Buffalo, where he 
worked for a month as attendant on a brick-mason and 
received ten dollars for his services, half in cash and half 
in dry goods. He took passage in a sailing vessel for 
Cleveland, and the vessel having a storm to weather was just 
a week in making the trip. From Cleveland he proceeded on 
foot to Akron, where he was employed for six months as clerk 
in a dry-goods store. In 1825 he worked for his brother-in-
law, William Lake, at Newburg, Ohio, who was engaged in the 
manufacture of fanning mills. In 1828 he began work with the 
engineering corps on the Ohio canal, and later became 
assistant engineer. He was thus employed for four years. He 
did some contract work on the Cincinnati and Harrison 
turnpike during this time.
     Our subject had now acquired a small capital, and in 
1832 purchased an interest in the Clinton furnace, of Scioto 
county. Unfortunately he had indorsed heavily for friends 
who failed in their business ventures, an in 1834 Mr. Terry 
was obliged to dispose of all his property to meet these 
endorsements. The next few years were given to contract work 
in Ohio and Indiana, and in 1837 he opened a wholesale boot 
and shoe establishment at Portsmouth, Ohio, which he 
conducted for four years, and then for two years was engaged 
in running flatboats to New Orleans, carrying the products 
of the country. About this time he purchased considerable 
agricultural land near Portsmouth and farmed it; later he 
added a milling business to this. In 1853 he built the 
Madison furnace, in Jackson county, and was its active 
manager until 1864. He purchased the Buckeye furnace in 1866 
and two years later sold it. He had business interests in 
Pettis county, Missouri, and managed the building of a 
furnace in Washington county, Missouri. He was prominently 
identified with business affairs of Portsmouth from 1874 to 
the time of his death. He was a large stockholder in the 
First National Bank, and for a time acted as its president. 
He served as director in the Portsmouth Iron and Steel Works 
until June 1, 1881, when he was made president and general 
superintendent. Mr. Terry was married November 14, 1832, to 
Susan Waller, daughter of Dr. Thomas Waller (see sketch 
elsewhere). Of the children, Charles was born November 30, 
1839; he married Josephine Johnley, of Scioto. Thomas Waller 
was born February 9, 1841. He was taking a course at West 
Point when the war broke out. He left school and became a 
member of the staff of General S. S. Fry, and at Camp 
Burnsides, Kentucky, died March 3, 1864, having contracted 
typhoid fever. George was born March 10, 1846. During the 
war he was a member of the Union Light Guards, whose duty it 
was to act as a body guard for the president. At the death

of President Lincoln he was appointed Orderly on the staff 
of General Augur, and is now located in the town of Blaine, 
Washington; he was married in March, 1888, to Miss Flora 
Tice, of Cincinnati. Lewis W. was born September 16, 1843. 
He attended Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio, for a short time. 
In 1861 he enlisted in Company A, Thirty-third Ohio 
Volunteer Infantry and served through the entire war. After 
the war he was engaged in the furnace business for a time, 
later became cashier of the First National Bank, a position 
which he still fills. He was married December 17, 1866, to 
Miss Phoebe Tillow, daughter of John and Elizabeth (nee 
Williamson) Tillow. Of the daughters, Alice Bancroft was 
born April 16, 1852, and died November 25, 1890. Mary 
Indiana, the oldest child, was born February 4, 1837, and is 
living with her mother at the old home in Portsmouth.
     John Pease Terry died May 18, 1886, and is buried in 
the Portsmouth cemetery. He was a man of fair business 
success, and public spirited in a marked degree. Politically 
he was a straight, uncompromising Republican. During the war 
he was appointed a member of the Military Committee for the 
Eleventh District, by Governor Dennison. He was intensely 
patriotic, and, as will be seen above, sent three sons to 
the war. His credit has always remained unimpaired, and thus 
he was enabled to get a start in life again when every 
dollar was taken to pay surety money. The early struggles of 
the fatherless boy only fitted the man for the encounters of 
life. He was a fine specimen of the self-made man, and may 
be pointed to with pride by a loving relationship and an 
admiring posterity. Source: Biographical History of the

               RACHEL C. TERRY BRYANT 1855-??
     George W. Bryant, one of the representative farmers and 
highly respected citizens of Goshen township, Hardin county, 
Ohio, owns and occupies a fine farm of two hundred and 
twenty-four acres. Mr. Bryant was born at Fostoria, Ohio, 
January 22, 1852, a son of George W. and Isabelle (Kemp) 
Bryant, the former a native of New York state and the latter 
of Hancock county, Ohio. During the Civil war George W. 
Bryant, the father, first enlisted as a member of the 
Twenty-first Ohio Volunteer Infantry, for two years, at the 
end of which time he was honorably discharged. The he 
reenlisted for three years or during the war, and as a 
member of the Fifty-second Ohio Volunteer Infantry was in 
active duty until peace was declared. While awaiting his 
discharge at Louisville, Kentucky, he was stricken with 
smallpox and died. His widow still lives, and is now 
seventy-seven years of age. Of their four children two are 
living: Sarah J. and George W. Those deceased are William S. 
and one who died in infancy.
     George W. Bryant, the subject of this sketch, was 
reared and educated at Findlay, Hancock county, Ohio, and 
remained there until 1876. From that year until 1888 he made 
his home in Marion county, and since 1888 he has been a 
resident of Hardin county, engaged in farming. From time to 
time he has been the recipient of official honors and has 
served efficiently in various local offices. For a number of 
years he was township supervisor, for nine years he was a 
justice of the peace and ever since he came to the county he 
has been a member of the school board. He is a member of the 
Maple Grange, and religiously, he and his family are 
identified with the Presbyterian church.
     On August 20, 1874, Mr. Bryant married Miss Ruth C. 
Terry, daughter of Champness and Rebecca Terry, and nine 
children have been born to them, namely: An infant, 
deceased; George E.; William C., deceased; Charles T.; 
Nellie; Carl H.; Mabel; John; and another infant which died 
in infancy.


     Mrs. Bryant was born in Marion county, Ohio, August 27, 
1855. Her father, Champness Terry, a native of Virginia, 
emigrated to Ohio in 1831 and settled in Marion county, 
where he bought five hundred acres of land, a portion of 
which extended into Hardin county. On this land he built a 
log cabin and in true pioneer style set about the work of 
clearing his farm, which he accomplished in due time. The 
Terrys are of English origin. Thomas Terry, the grandfather 
of Champness, was born in England; in early life he came to 
America and settled in Virginia and later was a soldier in 
the Revolutionary war. His son Thomas, Champness Terry's 
father, was a slaveholder in Virginia; religiously, he was a 
Quaker, and, espousing the Abolition cause, he moved to Ohio 
and freed his slaves. Champness Terry was twice married. By 
his first wife, whose maiden name was Anne Thompson, he had 
six children, namely: Thomas J. (deceased), Joseph C., David 
D., John H., Sarah J. (deceased), and William P. (deceased). 
Three of the sons were veterans of the Civil war - James M., 
Luke A., and David D. The last named was killed in action. 
For his second wife he married Rebecca Peters, who bore him 
fourteen children, as follows: Mary A., James M., Luke A., 
George W., Ruth C., Elizabeth A., Zachariah, Catherine L., 
Hannah J., Magnolia, Mack C., Susan R., and two that died in 
infancy. The mother of these children died January 18, 1901, 
at the age of seventy-six years, and Champness Terry died 
January 13, 1887, at the age of eighty-six years. He was 
held in high respect by all who knew him. For eighteen 
successive years he filled the office of township 
supervisor, and for several terms he was school director. 
One of his sons by his first marriage, John H., has large 
mining interests in Colorado, where he resides, and where he 
has been honored by election first to the office of probate 
judge and later to the office of judge of common pleas.

     [Editor's note: This differs somewhat from query 
#361285 and perhaps indicates the relationship between the 
Short and TERRY families. Alvin C. TERRY has indicated that 
the marriage for William TERRY is noted in a New Jersey 
record but have not seen citation [book, page no.] for this. 
Sometimes his wife is noted to be Rachel Martin also not 
documented. I don't think it has been proven conclusively 
that Rachel is the mother of all the children belonging to 
William. This needs to be documented!]
     In reference to query page 182, 441285 HILL-PURVIS, 
Moses Hill lived his entire married life in Fairfield Co. SC 
and died there in 1821. I wish also to say that Hiram Hill 
was not a son Of Moses Hill & Savilla Roden. Issac Hill, who 
Mrs. Purvis states lived in Alabama might be related to this 
family, but not as a son. Mrs. Purvis also refers to the 
name of Moses Hill in Warren County Georgia in a book by 
Maddox "Early Georgia Pioneers." The book indicates Moses 
Hill did participate in the land lottery, but we have no 
information to show he lived in Georgia. There is knowledge 
of a Moses Hill who served in the Revolution in Georgia, but 
he is not the Moses Hill that married Savilla Roden. Robert

[I feel the urge to comment here! While a Stephen TERRY is 
the father of James TERRY #64 above and his brother Roland 
TERRY  as noted in Granville Co. NC and Louisa Co. VA 
records, I do not think there is documented proof that 
Stephen TERRY who d. 1769 Craven Co. SC is the same Stephen 
noted in #128. Further research in Lancaster and Fairfield 
Dist.'s SC needs to be done to unravel the several Stephen 
TERRY's who could possibly be THE STEPHEN we are looking 
for. Key allied family names in unraveling the mystery could 

SUTTON, and WALKER in SC, NC and VA. The Thomas 1610 is a 
new one. Is there something I have missed?--Editor.]
     Your listing as TERRY FAMILY HISTORIAN in the May/June 
1982 issue of the Genealogical Helper prompts me to enquire 
if you have information on my TERRY: Edward F. TERRY b. 24 
Mar 1857 in NH, possibly on a farm near Concord, NH, son of 
Exra and Esther (or Lydia) (Church) TERRY. His obituary 
appeared in the New York Times of May 13, 1924 (p. 21) 
stating that he died on May 12, leaving a wife Rebecca 
Allie, formerly of St. Paul MN and a son Ezra David TERRY. 
His home was given as Riverdale NY -- 217 W. 259th St., The 
Bronx. The obituary also says that he was the founder in 
1895 with Frederick Tench of TERRY & Tench Co., engineers 
and contractors. (The Manhattan Bridge and Grand Central 
Terminal among his enteprises.) Mrs. Walter O. Malick, 1924 
Main St., Stevens Point WI 54481.
     In reference to your letter of June 10, 1981 we were 
right about Moore's and TERRY's being connected. In corres-
ponding with Mrs. Sarah Parker, 2505 Savery Dr. Tupelo MS 
38801, she tells us that the father of Stephen T. Moore was 
David Moore who was married to Anna Mariah TERRY. After 
David's death, she married William D. Cooper and had four 
children by him: Agrippa Cooper , William Cooper , Joseph 
Cooper and Sarah Cooper. This info was found in Sarah 
TERRY's Will d. 1834 Copiah Co. MS. By David Moore, Anna had 
Stephen  T.  Moore,  John T.  Moore and according to Will of 
Elizabeth Moore.  Mrs.  John T.  Moore,  Box 145,  Elaine AR 
     Do you have info on Mary Terry, or her ancestors, who 
married a John French whose father's name was Anderson 
French? They had a son named Noah French b. 28 Feb 1754 
Elizabethtown, NJ, d. 14 Nov 1843, Hermon, Saint Lawrence 
Co., NY. David W. DeFrees, 1042 West 90th St., Los Angeles 
CA 90044.
     If any members can help me with any of the missing 
data, I would appreciate it. I have not worked on some of

these for several years since I began the TFH. Mike Terry,

     What information does anyone have regarding the old 
community of Pinckneyville, SC, on the Broad River in Union 
Co. SC in late 18th and early 19th Centuries? Did anyone 
ever hear that Eli Terry the clockmaker sold clocks in that 
area? I am very serious? Equity Court Districts in SC, in 
1808 included a Pinckney district in Spartan, Cherokee and 
Union Counties. Also, who oned Terry's Tan Yard in Chester 
Co. SC about 1820? The tan yard was south of Chesterville, 
and just east of Broad River. Also has anyone heard of Terry 
graves being moved from area of Ft. Jackson, SC when the 
government enlarged fort? Where interred? Did Stephen Terry, 
who owned land near Stovall, NC, just south of Virginia 
line, die there or move to Chester Co. SC ca. 1767? A 
Stephen Terry, James McClure and Robert Gill owned land near 
Fishing Creek Meeting House and Saluda Rd. in 1767 per old 
NC Land grants in SC. Has anyone ever heard that many 
Southern Terry's were "fighting Quakers?" Who knows anything 
about Thomas Terry who lived near H. Terry near Anderson SC 
in 1857? Thomas Terry's children were: Nancy Ann, Eliza 
Jane, Mary Catherine, Martha Missouri, Warren Jefferson, 
William Joseph, and Thomas Gideon. They lived near old 
Asberry Church. [These Paid for by Jo Terry, 1725

     Am trying to locate the parents of Mary who married

in 1758 deeded land to his son-in-law Thomas in 
Fredericksville Parish [VA]?
     Also could this Thomas be the son of Champness and 
Christian of Louisa Co. VA? Thomas' known children were: 
Mary, Susanna Beasley, wife of Richard Beasley, Thomas who 
married Nancy Dalton, Champness, Joseph & Nathaniel. There 
may have been 2 more--who were they? Would like to 
correspond with anyone working on this line. Will share info 
that I have.
