I bought a set of "TERRY Family Census" From the wife of the late author
Earnest L. Terry. The cost is $35.00 for 2 hardcover books. They cover
the dates from 1790-1920 and cover the states of Al., AR.,CA., FL, IL., IN., KY., LA.,
MS, MO., NC., OH., OK., OR., SC., TN., TX., VA., WV. and WA. These books are a
positive must for any TERRY researcher. I'm NOT selling these books and
am in no way connected, but highly endorse them! The Lady's Ph# is 1-601-483-6880
in Meridian, MS. Her address is: Mrs. Earnest L. Terry, 5010 37th Ave, Meridian,
MS. 39305. I called her just bit ago and got her permission to post her name,
address, & phone.



The surname Terry is distinct in origin from the forename Terry.  The surname
is from the Germanic Theodoric; the forename from the Latin Terentius or
Terence.  As a family name, Terry, which is rated Irish and  English, had a
circuitous development.  The source Theodoric (people-rule) was picked up
by the French,  turned into Thierry and passed along to the British in the
11th century. In Britain it underwent the usual changes. In 1086 it was Tedric,
in 1200 Tericus, in the 1400's Terrick and in the 1600s Terye. By the 18th
century  it has settled on Terr(e)y. The name turned up in Ireland about the
12th-13th century as Therry, Tyrry and Tirry, especially around Kilkenny
and Cork. For  the last several centuries it has been spelled Terry.

Hilliard M. Terry  From: Warner Robins GA

I have fairly good genealogical information on my Terry line. It came to Alabama in the 1820's via a James "Jemmes" Terry from Edgefield County, SC. I believe he may have descended from the James Terry of Virginia (ca. 1725). My father was Charles W. Terry,   Jr.  (b.Hale County, AL--1913). His father was Charles W. Terry (b. Hale County, AL--1878).  His  father was Hilliard R. Terry (b. Hale County, AL--1850's). I have further information for anyone interested.


I hope this information might be helpful. Also, looking for hints to fill in the gaps in my own Terry research. Following is info on my Edgefield County, SC Terry ancestors.
Early 19th century, James and Susanna (Clements) Terry migrated from South Carolina (probably Edgefield County) to Bibb County, Alabama and settled  near the
Perry County line. Their children: Stephen Terry, William Terry (b. SC ca. 1810), Thomas   Terry (b. SC ca. 1815), Nancy Ann Terry (b. SC ca. 1816), Dr. Richard Everett Terry
(b. SC ca. 1818), James (Jemmes) Terry (b. AL ca. 1820), Hilliard Judge Terry (b. AL ca. 1821), Samuel Curtis Terry (b. AL ca. 1824), Susannah Terry (b. AL ca. 1825), Moses
P. Terry (b. AL ca.  1827), Francis Asbury Terry (b. AL ca. 1828). My great-grandfather was  Hilliard Richardson Terry (b. AL ca. 1853), youngest child of James "Jemmes" Terry.
My grandfather was Charles W. Terry (b. AL, 1878). My father was Charles W. Terry, Sr.
(b. Greensboro, AL, 1913; d. 1985).

I have much more detail if you're interested. I have no information though
before James and Susannah (Clements) Terry, except for this description: My
firstTerry ancestor may have come to America during the reign of Bloody
Mary. If so, he was likely fleeing for his life. The early generations of
this family seem to have been devout protestants of the type that Queen Mary
tried to eliminate from England. Whether true or not, it's quite certain
that my Terry ancestors were avid followers of John Wesley and it is quite
possible that the grandfather of the first member of the family to migrate
to Alabama may have become acquainted with Rev. Wesley while he was in
Savannah, Georgia from 1735 to 1738. A Terry ancestor of my line was living
in Savannah about that time. His descendants moved into other parts of
Georgia and to South and North Carolina.

Thanks, Hilliard Terry

Mike, I have recently found your site. I have enjoyed reading your publications
very much. Thank you for using it for all to enjoy. Like you I have been searching for my
S.C. Terrys for a long time. My g-g Grandfather came to Ga. abt 1827 and settled in
Campbell  Co. He was John Terry b abt 1799 S.C. m Antha Wright 1822 b abt 1805 S.C.
Children were Lousia b 1824 S.C. Robertson William b 26 Sept 1825 S.C. Nancy C.
b 21 Nov. 1827 S.C.  Joseph W. Terry b 1830 Ga Joseph Meluth b 1832 Ga. I have never
been able to find who Johns  father was or from which line of Terrys we are from. I would
like to know if you had more success.  I have been told that they were from upper S.C.
Some think from Chester,  I cannot prove this. I saw some of your tracks while searching
in Chester S.C.  I would appreciate any help you can give me. I  am willing to pay for any

Looking for information on William Terry b 1736 in NC. Does he hook with
your family?

Mickey Paulson Aranki
From: 7315 Foxmont , Humble, Texas,77338

Very nice site, especially like being able to view the pedigree. I am trying to trace the
ancestors of my ggg-grandmother Nancy Jane Terry ca 1828 in McNairy Co. TN. Her
parents were William & Permelia Terry. William was born ca 1804 in TN, died in Pontotoc
Co. MS. Permelia was born 14 May 1808 in S.C. died 4 Aug 1862 in either Lafayette or
Pontotoc Co. MS. They had children named Jesse born ca 1830 who married Sarah A.
Sledge, Ezekial born ca 1832 who married Martha Ann Clements, John born ca 1834 who
married Matilda L. Lyen, James born ca 1836 and Lewis P. born ca 1838 who married
Ester (?). It seems that William & Permelia moved to Pontotoc County in the early 1840's.
Nancy Jane married Lemuel Merry Sledge abt 1847, they had 11 children that we're aware
I would like to hear from descendants of any of the family to Compare notes. I hope
someone has gone back further than William.

From: Mickey Aranki [mickeyaranki@netzero.net]

You work fast!  I sure wish I could talk with my cousin by e-mail to find out what she has
now on her grandmother.  Lula Mae was something of a mystery, I remember my cousin
Rene saying that she had two different stories on her and that she was trying to figure
out which was correct.  The fact that she said that her parents had died when she was
only 1 or two might still be accurate if she was related to Alonzo and his wife Louisa.  
Did the relationship show up on the census for 1880 or 1900?  It would make a big
difference if it says daughter or some other relationship.  Also this is quite a bit of age
difference from what was put on her probated birth record, but a lot of women want to
be younger and "lose" a few years.  Rene had speculated that she thought her grand-
mother Lula Mae was trying to hide something in her past and that she might never be
able to find out who she really was.

I am in the process of writing to Rene to update her on what we have and to see where
her research has led her.  I know she will be thrilled, I get a big jolt every time I receive
information - even when it is not my line. 

Terry Line of  Mickey Aranki [mickeyaranki@netzero.net]

I also want to include my linkage to the Terry line for you, it goes:
1.  Mickey Lynn Paulson born December 3, 1949 in Waco, McLennan Co. Texas married
     Sept. 23, 1974 in Houston, Harris County TX to Osama Fuad Aranki born June 7, 
     1948 in Bir-zeit, West Bank, Jordan
2. Leonard Royals Paulson born Oct.9, 1927 in Love Lady, Houston Co. TX   died July 27
    1971 Houston, Harris Co. TX     married January 8,1949 Selma, California
3. Bonita Daniel born Nov.12,1932 in Hanna, Oklahoma
6. Elzie Daniel born June 5, 1895 in Pontotoc County, Mississippi  died Nov. 4,1989  
    Henryetta, Oklahoma   married July 22,1923 in Hanna, Oklahoma
7. Sally Mae Jackson born Feb.14, 1903 in Chicklah, Yell Co. Arkansas died Feb.6,1968
    Hanford, California
12. John Edwin "Jesse" Daniel born Feb.23,1866 Pontotoc or Lafayette Co. Mississippi 
     died Dec.17,1917 in Dardanelle,Yell Co. Ark. married Dec.3,1891 Pontotoc Co. MS 
13. Lou Ella Tallent born June 1874 Lafayette Co. MS died Aug.4,1900 near Box Elder, 
     Red River Co., Texas
26. James Wesley Tallent b. Sept.23,1847 Alabama  d. Dec.20,1921 Lafayette Co,  MS
      married Sept.27,1871 Pontotoc Co. Mississippi
27. Permelia Sledge b. July15,1853 Pontotoc Co., MS  d.Dec.3,1901 Lafayette Co. MS.
54. Lemuel Merry Sledge b. abt 1801 Virginia  d. aft 1880 Pontotoc County, Mississippi
     married abt. 1847 
55. Nancy Jane Terry b. abt 1828 McNairy Co. Tennessee (we think) d.Jan 1894 
     Pontotoc County, MS. Buried in Sledge-Tallent Cemetery, Pontotoc County
110. William Terry b.abt 1804 Tennessee   married abt 1827 prob. McNairy County, TN
111. Permeila  ?   b. May 14, 1808 South Carolina, d. August 4,1862 Lafayette or
       Pontotoc County, MS.  Buried in Sledge-Tallent Cemetery, Pontotoc County.
Note: William and Permelia were also the parents of Jesse Terry b abt 1830 in TN, who
 married Sarah A. Sledge (sister to Permelia Sledge);  Ezekial Terry b. abt 1832 in TN. 
who married Martha Ann Clements;  John Terry b. abt 1834 in TN. who married Matilda L. 
Lyen;  James Terry b.abt 1836 in TN.;  and Lewis P. Terry b. abt 1838 in TN who married 
Ester ?.
My information comes from census records & marriage records of Pontotoc and Lafayette
 County, Mississippi.  Cemetery records of Pontotoc County. and from researchers James 
Chapman, Sandra Daniel, Mildred Daniel Moretta, Calvin & Alma Sledge.  (James Chapman 
is not from the Terry line but has done some work on it as he thinks they hold the key to the 
background of Lemuel Merry Sledge - our common ancestor.  Lemuel Sledge was in Tenne-
ssee before coming to Pontotoc County, MS and had a previous wife and abt 11 children
 from the first marriage.  I think that his first wife could have been a relative of William Terry 
or Permelia his wife, this is just speculation of course)

Thank you for all your help, I hope to be back in touch soon with my cousin Rene's 
comments.  If we can tie her in she will want to know about her Terry background.
Sincerely, Mickey  

Candace Sheep From: Austin TX

Comments: What a great site! While I'm not sure that my Terrys link to this group, I'm
interested in all Terry news. My Terrys settled in northwest Arkansas, Washington Co.
I am descended from William Terry (1724-1803)/John Terry (1760-1842)/John Terry II
(1790-1848)/Clark H. Terry (1838-1913)/James Noah Terry (1877-1962)/Bessie Pearl
Terry Osburn (1898-1963). If anyone connects with these folks, I would love to hear
from you. Many thanks!

Don McCormick  From: Lakeside, CA
Comments: My line goes back to Stephen Terry b. 1608 d.1668. His daughter 
Abigail Terry b. 1646 married Joseph Kellogg. I have very little info on the Terry line. 
I am interested in the origin of the name and where from.

1203-1999 TERRY DAVIS
Name: James P. Terry From: Oak Harbor, WA
Comments: I am a descendant of Thomas Terry (b. abt. 1650) who settled in 
Pennsylvania. I come through the line of David Terry and Grace Davis who removed 
to Sharon, Ontario about 1812.

 Mark Hunter From: Blacksburg, VA

My third-great-grandmother was JANE TERRY (1800-1859) of Chester and Abbeville Districts, 
SC, daughter of Jeremiah Sealy Terry and Sarah Terry. Jane first married Dr. Joseph B. Gibert, 
then following his death, married my ancestor ALEXANDER HUNTER of Abbeville District. 
I'm hoping to soon learn the origins of Jane's great-grandfather STEPHEN TERRY, who 
died in Chester District SC in the 1760's. Maybe I'll find some clues on this great web site. 

Becky Childers bbmc@bellsouth.net

My Terry family lived in Forsyth Co. Georgia. My gg grandfather was
Martin Terry who died Nov. 17th 1885. His son was John W Terry born Aug.
9th 1848 who married Ada Ann Settles. My grandfather was Euel John Terry
who married Katie Estella Holbrooks. They lived in Cumming Ga. Do any of
these names sound familiar? Please Email me back at bbmc@bellsouth.net
Thanks, Brenda Pass Massey

My name is Brenda Pass Massey. My mothers name was Edna Merlene (Terry) Pass Cain
from Forsyth Co. Georgia. My gg grandfather was Martin Terry who died Nov. 17th 1885
and listed as the ex. of his will John and Stephen Terry. From Martin came my g
grandfather John W. Terry born born Aug. 9th 1848 and married Ada Ann Settles born
Oct. 12, 1852-3.  From them came the following children the first listed being my
grandfather. Euel John Terry 6/25/1891 Lucindy Cumi Terry 11/14/1873 Ollie Eugena
Terry 9/29/1873 Julia Ann Terry  11/15/1877 James Martin Terry (Jim) 11/11/1879 Wade

Francis Terry 11/12/1888  Zilla Ophelia Terry 2/1/1893 Nettie Jerisha Terry 9/27/1876 When
Martin Terry died he listed a John and Stephen Terry as Ex. To his will (? his brothers or
sons) Our Terrys came from all over and migrated into North Georgia. They came from
North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia and Georgia. One thing I have
found that is very prominate  in some of the Terrys from pictures I have seen on the net,
is their ears. Their ears stand  out  a little bit and are of medium size. Please Email me  if
any of  these names connect. Thanks, Brenda Pass Massey

1503-1999 TERRY LIEBER
Betty Lieber Anjliebe@aol.com

My name is Betty Lieber and I am a direct descendant of Richard Terry. I
really have enjoyed looking over your TFH. There are several pages that I
would like to make copies of. How do I do this w/o copying the WHOLE
enchilada? Especially the Plum Island Deed since 11 of my direct ancestors
signed it! And of course, I wouldn't mind having the wills of Thomas, Richard
and Joshua. I have three Terry books (and am trying to get a copy of the Terry
Family by William Z. Terry) to round out my collection.  I wouldn't mind looking
up information from any of those I have, but don't want anyone to rely on them
as being gospel even if they are Terrys ~ if you know what I mean. They made
mistakes, too.

However, there you go. Get in touch if there are any questions. Best to you,

I saw your Terry Web site. I wanted to see if you might have any leads on
my Terry line or the names of other researchers working on the same line.

Here is my line:

Lydia M. Terry (Ankenbauer) 1907-1983

Robert Ankenbauer 1960-

My great-great grandfather, John Monroe Terry, b. 1813 in Georgia,
married Emily Webb, b. 1825 in Tennessee. We believe John and Emily
married in Georgia and moved to Union Parish Louisiana where they raised
a family of five children. Our search is for the parents and siblings
of John Monroe Terry in Georgia. We have some information about John
and Emily's children if that information would be helpful to anyone.
Please check your database and files to see if you have any information
on John Monroe's history. We would appreciate any help or guidance that
we may receive.

Thanks, Bob Terry


Renee Thompson

Hi Mike! I just want to take a moment to write to you and commend you on a
great job! your site has been so very informative to me. My guestion, Do you
have a current address listing on the Debbie Cameron Miller who submitted
the articles in the Sept. 1984 issue of the TERRY FAMILY HISTORIAN? The
article she submitted on "John Terry, an Irishman..." is about my 3rd great
grandfather who married Elizabeth Emily Baker. I have a complete listing
of all 15 of their children. Plus his fathers name with all 13 of their children.
I would really like to get in touch with her. (plus other info. I would like to share)
Also, see this family listed in the Sept. 1986 and Dec. 1986 issues of the Terry
Family Historian. again, thank you for your hard work and all the countless
hours you have put into it! and thank you for your time. regards, Renee
Thompson, Bibb County Alabama.
