TERRY FAMILY HISTORIAN
VOLUME II SEPTEMBER 1983 NUMBER 3
=============================================================================== When you submit articles or other TERRY memorabilia, please give full source information and write your name on every page so I can give you credit for your contribution. Please write an article for me!!!! ===============================================================================
I want to thank everyone who sent articles, family sheets, ancestor sheets, pictures, notes, drawings etc., etc. I have quite a back-log of information as I am somewhat limited due to the 50 pages or so that I publish each quarter. I do use bits and pieces of information as I receive data and I try to concen- trate on an area. It is hoped that the queries will pick up some of the slack as far as coverage is concerned.
When I only had about 15 members I kept up very well with all of the correspon- dence but I must confess that I have about 30 letters to answer at any given time. Our two sons are also with us for the summer, so much of my work has slowed down, especially the compilation of marriages, deaths, wills, deeds and so forth. PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGIES FOR NOT ANSWERING YOUR LETTERS PROMPTLY!!!
We did visit Chester SC during the month of June and I went to the courthouse and in Chester SC we gathered some information and also took some pictures of the scenery and tombstones. It was quite exciting for me and I will relate some of the information concerning my visit in the December 1983 issue.
Much of what you are seeing in the TFH is original material. I certainly do not want to publish what has already been done as much as possible and am still uncertain about publishing copy-righted material without permission and am writing to several persons to gain permission to publish the material in the TFH.
I would like to get your feed-back concerning what I am doing. I assume there is a lot of correspondence going on between members. Sometimes this fact is mentioned in correspondence that I receive. Please tell your friends and rela- tives and fellow researchers about the publication. If any local newspapers print genealogy columns, please let me know the address. These have been very good sources for members. Though we are not at the level of members I had hoped to be at this time we have grown from 25 in June 1982 to over 150+ as of September, 1983.
Cannot see how I can continue to publish at the price of $10.00 per year and already have gone up to $4.00 for the back issues and single issues. I certain- ly underestimated the cost of putting out the publication. If you have any ideas to raise funds--please let me know. Otherwise, I will most certainly charge $16.00 for the 1984 year. I will allow present members to renew before January 1, 1984 for the price of $10.00 as stated.

COVERING THE TERRY-TORY: "Preachers & Teachers" By Robert W. TERRY 4900 Springdale Rd Cincinnati OH 45247
As the descendant of paternal and maternal families of educators, and still teaching classes in a job that began 16 years ago as a "moonlight" occupation, I have found that the Terrys have contributed their share in the fields of education, as well as in in religion.
For example, I'm trying to learn the first name of the "Mr. TERRY" who in 1774 is reported to have delivered a sermon to the troops of Col. Andrew Lewis, en route along the Kanawha River of West Virginia to Pt. Pleasant. Col. Lewis and his troops repulsed on Oct. 10 an attack by Indians north of the Ohio River in Lord Dunmore's War.
Those of you with Irish ancestry may be interested in the William Tirry (also spelled TERRY) who was Bishop of Cork and Cloyne from 1622 to 1640. Perhaps I shouldn't mention the Fr. William Tirrey, O.S.A., who in 1654 was hanged, drawn and quartered.
From the same source, "More Irish Families" by Edward McLysaght, one learns that the Rev. Joseph Therry, 1790-1864, visited both Queensland and New South Wales, where Sir Roger Therry was both attorney general and judge.
An American educator and minister of prominence was one Benjamin Stites TERRY, born April 9, 1857 in St. Paul, Minn. and died Oct. 30, 1931 at Chicago, Ill.
Benjamin Stites TERRY was valedictorian of his graduating class at Colgate University in 1878, and received his master's degree there in 1881. He com- pleted his theological training during the time he worked on his master's degree.
After ordination as a Baptist minister, Benjamin Stites TERRY was pastor of Baptist churches at Perry and Fairport, New York, but resigned to become professor of history at Colgate, his alma mater, in 1885.
In 1891 he went to Germany and received his Ph.D. the following year at the University of Freiburg. There he became a friend and colleague of Hermann von Holst, a professor at Freiburg who came to head the history department at the University of Chicago in 1892. Benjamin Stites TERRY came with him as professor of English Constitutional and Medieval History, a field in which he was regarded as an expert.
At the University of Chicago, TERRY found time to write histories of England and review papers for the American Historical Association, of which he was a member. Colgate University awarded him and honorary LL.D. degree in 1903, for his earlier recognition as a fellow in the Royal Historical Society of Great Britain.
Benjamin Stites TERRY retired from the University of Chicago faculty in 1925. At the time of his death, he left his widow, the former Mary Cynthia Baldwin, daughter of a Baptist minister, and three children, Schuyler Baldwin TERRY, Mrs. Edith TERRY Bremer, and Mrs. Ethel TERRY McCoy.
The educator was the son of John Carlos TERRY, born in 1824 at Lebonon, Ohio, and died Feb. 15, 1902, at St. Paul, Minn. He learned the printing trade in early life, worked on newspapers in Ohio until service in the War with Mexico, and went to St. Paul in 1849. There, he founded one of the city's newspapers and in 1851 published the revised statutes of Minnesota, which bear his name. After leaving journalistic pursuits, he served 18 years as assistant postmaster of St. Paul. He and his wife, the former Emily (Wakefield) Chase TERRY, were the parents of Benjamin Stites TERRY and another son, Frank W. TERRY.
Grandfather of Benjamin Stites TERRY and father of John Carlos TERRY, was Robert TERRY, a native of Warren County, Ohio who on March 17, 1822 married Elizabeth Stites, daughter of the man for whom the grandson was named.
Benjamin Stites, of New Jersey and later of western Pennsylvania, was an Indian trader who in 1786 persuaded John Cleves Symmes, member of Congress from New Jersey, to purchase land he had viewed between the Great Miami and Little Miami Rivers. The tract includes present-day Cincinnati and the settlement Benjamin Stites called "Columbia," part of the 10,000 acres he purchased from Judge Symmes.
John Carlos TERRY had two brothers. One was Elijah, killed by Indians while serving as a missionary to the Dakota tribes; the other was another Benjamin Stites TERRY, killed by Indians when serving with the Sixth Minnesota Regiment in 1863 against the Sioux uprising.
The father of Robert TERRY was John TERRY (1773-1857). His wife was Osee Clark, daughter of the Rev. Daniel Clark, a Baptist minister in early Cincinna- ti and Warren County, Ohio.
Where do I come in? I share the same ancestor with Benjamin Stites TERRY, who was John TERRY, his great-great grandfather, and father of his great grand- father also John TERRY. My great-great grandfather, Robert TERRY, was the son of the earlier John TERRY and a brother of the John TERRY who was the great- grandfather of Benjamin Stites TERRY.

HOUSEHOLD OF ANN M. TERRY, 1840 CENSUS OF EDGEFIELD COUNTY SOUTH CAROLINA Additional Notes by Jay TERRY of Orem, Utah.
It appears that the household of Ann M. TERRY, page #69, has three families or two families and one grandmother as follows:
1. The first males under 5 are children of Joseph P. TERRY and wife Elvira, Roland @ 3 and William @ 5 who both are on the 1850 Census. Joseph P. and Elvira are a son and daughter-in-law of Ann M. TERRY.
2. The next three males, 5-10, 10-15, and 15-20 are children of John TERRY dec'd (1835-40) and Ann M. (TERRY) TERRY a son-in-law and dau of Ann M. TERRY. The children are William, John and Joseph and are on the 1850 Census.
3. The next male 30-40 is Joseph P. TERRY. He dies, according to Obit. in 1842 in the 42nd year of his life which we would say is 41. His age on the census is @ 39 years of age.
4. The first four females, under 5, 5-10 and 10-15 are daus of Joseph P. and Elvira TERRY. The one under 5 is Nancy and is on the 1850 census. What happened to the two 5-10 can only be a guess--because they are not on the 1850 census. They had either died or married. Joseph P. TERRY's obit. stated he died leaving a large family.
5. The next two females 15-20 are daus of John dec'd 1835-1840 and Ann M. TERRY, the dau of old Ann M. TERRY. Old Ann M. TERRY in her will of 1843 grants to her dau Ann M. TERRY and Heirs. Both of these 15-20 daughters had probably married by 1850 census.
6. The next female 20-30 is Elvira, wife of Joseph P. TERRY and is on the 1850 census.
7. The next female 40-50 is Ann Maria (TERRY) TERRY daughter of Ann M. (Min- ter) TERRY and widow of John TERRY (d. 1835-1840) the oldest son of James TERRY, dec'd 1848 in Granville Co. NC--THUS: In 1850--A. M. TERRY Sr., A. M. TERRY Jr., Joseph TERRY and William TERRY, all of Edgefield Dist. SC confer power of attorney to John M. (Minter?) TERRY to collect their parts of the estate of James TERRY, dec'd 1848 in Granville Co. NC. Recorded in Deed Book 16, pg 120, Granville Co. NC -- executed in Edgefield Dist SC 25 Jul 1850. Proved and accepted by Granville Co., NC Court Nov 1850.
8. The final female 70-80 is the Anna Maria (Minter) TERRY who was a dau of Anna Maria (Gooch) Minter Williams and married John TERRY who died 1817 in Edgefield Dist. SC. [I believe this John was a son of James TERRY dec'd 1799 in Granville Co. NC and Anna Mariah (Minter) TERRY may have been his second wife., jt.]
Note: It was the power of attorney as shown in # 7 above, that started this whole attempt to unscramble these Edgefield Co., SC Households. Most I feel are correct--There may be problems with the 1830 Census because of all the John Terrys listed. jt] ===============================================================================

NOTES ON THE WILL OF OBEDIAH CLEMENT by Jay TERRY Will written 2 Mar 1799; Will proved 1802
Wife: Sarah Clement. She was the daughter of James TERRY d. 1797 in Granville Co. NC. Obediah Clement, her husband, was a son of Simon Clement whose will was proved in Granville Co. NC in 1800. Thus, both came from Granville Co. NC.
Children: Not named.
Executors: Stephen TERRY, [a brother to Capt. John TERRY], Capt. John TERRY, [married A. M. Minter, brother to Stephen], beloved wife. Stephen TERRY married Ann Clement in 1783 in Granville Co. NC. Ann is listed on the Will of Simeon Clement as daughter Ann TERRY. Stephen was the son of James TERRY d. 1797. Thus, Obediah Clements and Stephen TERRY are brothers-in-law. Sarah (TERRY) Clement and Anne (Clement) TERRY are sisters-in-law. Stephen TERRY and Obediah Clement are found documented always close together in deeds, census', etc.
Witnesses: Simeon Clement [probably a brother, a Simeon is on the Clement Granville Co., NC Will.]
Z. Clement--This is Zephaniah Clement, a brother to Obediah.
William Strom--married Mary (TERRY) Mintor, a widow of John Mintor. She was a daughter of James TERRY d. 1797, thus a sister to Stephen TERRY above and William Strom would be a brother-in-law to Stephen TERRY and Obediah Clement.
Stephen Clement--[Like Simeon above probably a brother as there was a Stephen Clements on the Granville NC Clement Will. ===============================================================================

Part 1-- The direct and indirect index for the original packets, or envelopes containing loose papers from individual trials.
Part 5-- Envelope #59, Sarah TERRY guardian papers for guardianship of estate of William TERRY, her husband, left to Joseph m. TERRY, their son and a minor.
Part 11-- Envelope #327, litigation involving Anna M. TERRY--no papers showing relationships.
Part 11-- Envelope #328, among other legal papers-- The original petition by Anna M. TERRY for the division of her dec'd husband's lands--transcription attached.
Part 12-- Envelope #386, Stephen TERRY Junior in litigation over estate of Charles Jones, dec'd and his wife, Nancy Jones. No papers showing relationship.
Part 17-- Envelope #565, James TERRY as Equity Court Commr. Legal Court matters with no relationships. Note: This James TERRY is the son of Anna Mariah (Min- ter) TERRY, wife of John TERRY, d. 1817 also known as Capt. John TERRY. James TERRY was involved as legal counsel in Edgefield County for many years. He later moved to Alabama and a transcription of his obituary is printed in Carlee T. McClendon's book, EDGEFIELD DEATH NOTICES AND CEMETERY RECORDS, pg. 138. He died in Choctaw Co. Alabama, 21 July 1856 jt.
Part 17-- Envelope #566, Litigation of Stephen TERRY and others--the others being all the living heirs of John Burkhalter, dec'd. Names Jane Burkhalter as the wife of Stephen.
Part 26-- Envelope #878, James TERRY as Commr., similar to legal matters in envelope #565-- See above.
Part 32-- Envelope #1030, A large file relating to a petition by Anna M. TERRY, daughter of Joseph Minter, claiming right to a negro female slave and children of same. Many listings of heirs, relationships, etc. See attached transcrip- tion.
Part 49-- Envelope #1784, Joseph M. TERRY established as guardian of his chil- dren, William TERRY and Sarah TERRY. Note: Apparently these children were heirs to the estate of Joseph M. TERRY's first wife dec'd at this time. I cannot think of any other reason a father would have to file for guardianship papers on his own children. The loose papers do not clarify a reason for this legal
action, however, from the Equity Court Minute Book 1827-1849: Page 362--Peti- tion for revocation of guardianship-- "The report of the Commr. in this matter being read on motion of Ward Law, Ward Law soliciting for petitioner, ordered in presence of the Commr. that the said Joseph M. TERRY be excused from making further returns in this State as guardian of his children Sarah TERRY and William TERRY--dated 11 June 1835."
From EDGEFIELD MARRIAGE RECORDS by McClendon, 1970: "Sarah S. TERRY, daughter of Joseph M. TERRY formerly of Edgefield District married to Dr. Thomas B. Hoxey--16 Oct 1838. [Note by editor: This marriage was in Columbus GA.]
Part 49-- Envelope #1791, the estate of William TERRY in account current with Sarah TERRY, guardian of Rowland TERRY. "...sworn 7 Jan 1818 in which Rowland TERRY is indebted to his mother as guardian from 1816, the date of her appoint- ment to the present date..." signed Wm Brooks 6 Jan 1818.
Part 53-- Envelope #2186, petition of William (T) Moore for Uncle John TERRY to be his guardian...His father and mother, a daughter of William TERRY, dec'd, both dead. Filed 8 Feb 1816.

Note: James TERRY was being accused of theft of funds while a commr for the court of equity...he was acquitted, 12 June 1847. jt
Part 56-- Envelope #2508, among other papers, includes the original petition by Sarah TERRY for the division of her husband, William TERRY, stating his death date, all living heirs, and married relationships. See attached transcription. Note: In envelope #1030, involving Anna M. (Minter) TERRY, daughter of Joseph Minter and sister of Sarah (Minter) TERRY above, the list of children for William TERRY and Sarah (Minter) TERRY adds two daughters who had apparently died before their father's death in 1816 and were not shown as living heirs on the legal papers in envelope #2508. jt ===============================================================================

The original petition of Anna M. TERRY to have certain tracts of land from her husband's estate, one (Capt.) John TERRY divided among the legal heirs.
"...Anna M. TERRY, widow and relict of John TERRY dec'd, Joseph P. TERRY, John TERRY and his wife Elizabeth, David Nicholson and his wife Nancy, John TERRY N. C. and his wife Anna Maria, and Gutherie Chatham and his wife Sarah...said John TERRY dec'd departed this life in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventeen...(note--no day and month mentioned. jt)...also (as heirs) James TERRY and Mary Ann TERRY who is a minor...two tracts of land adjoining each other situated in Edgefield District and lying on Turkey and Rocky Creeks, waters of the Savannah River being the late residence fo the said John TERRY dec'd...containing between four and five hundred acres and bounded by lands owned by Joseph---(not readable), William Labans (not readable), Stephen TERRY Sen., John Walker and others...one other tract of land...on Turkey and Log Creeks containing about one hundred acres and bounded by lands owned by Edmund Boyd, John TERRY, John Chatham, Hollis Duston and others...said Mary Ann TERRY by her guardian (not named)"
Note: Anna Mariah (Minter), daughter Joseph Minter, married John TERRY and had issue:
1.) Joseph P. TERRY m. Elvira ?? (Elvira on 1850 census) from C.T. McClendon's EDGEFIELD DEATH NOTICES AND CEMETERY RECORDS, "Died...August 11, 1842...Joseph P. TERRY, the 42nd year of his life, leaving a large family."
2.) Elizabeth TERRY m. John TERRY (probably a son of William).
3.) Nancy TERRY m. David Nicholson
4.) Anna Mariah TERRY m. John TERRY N.C. Note: To clarify the many John Terrys in the area I find them listed as John TERRY Jr., William TERRY's son; Capt. John TERRY also John TERRY Sr., the oldest and believed to be the son of James TERRY who left a will in Granville Co. NC in 1797; and the above John TERRY N.C. who was a son of James TERRY of Granville Co. NC who left a will in 1848.
In 1850, A.M. TERRY Sr. (female) and A.M. TERRY Jr. (female) Joseph and William TERRY, all of Edgefield County SC confer power of attorney to John M. TERRY to collect their parts of the estate of James TERRY dec'd in 1848 in Granville County NC. They are listed on the 1850 census of Edgefield County SC household #2352 pg 154. Thus the use of the N.C. (North Carolina) after the John TERRY from North Carolina, was the identifying mark to keep his identity separate from the other John Terrys of the area. jt
5.) Sarah TERRY m. Gutherie Chatham
6.) James TERRY m. ______ Hutchinson. He died in Choctaw County AL 21 Jul 1856.
7.) Mary Ann TERRY m. John Reynolds about 1833. Marriage source: 7500 MARRIAGES FROM NINETY-SIX AND ABBEVILLE DISTRICTS SC 1774-1890.
NOTE: It is possible that Anna M. (Minter) TERRY is the second wife of Capt. John TERRY. Evidence points to the fact that John TERRY married his first wife Mary Gomen in Granville Co. NC 19 Apr 1784. ===============================================================================

This is the last will and Testament of Champness TERRY of Ninety Six District, South Carolina.
My wife Sarah TERRY. My children: Champness TERRY; David TERRY; Sarah TERRY, Mentions unborn child. Executrix to be my wife during her widowhood; then, John Lewis of Virginia and Robert Start [Stark?] Dated 14 September 1775. Signed "Champness TERRY".

Lawrence for Dorothy Sims Fuqua.

Note by Mr. Lawrence: The Ninety Six District at this time included all of the upper [western] part of the state. No doubt this is the family that later shows in Edgefield County. Judging by the Revolutionary War Accounts, included in this report, the above Champness TERRY died sometime after 1775 and before 1786. The fact that this will is filed in the Colonial records indicates that he died before the end of the war in 1783.
REVOLUTIONARY WAR ACCOUNTS: These were accounts of payment to veterans of he Revolutionary War who submitted claims after laws were passed in 1783 to reim- burse them for their service. All of the men submitting claims had served as volunteers during the Revolution and had received no pay at that time.

THE COURTSHIP OF EMMA (GRAHAM) TERRY
Submitted by Betty Martin 605 N. Robinson Harrison AR 72601
In an old trunk belonging to Thomas and Emily "Emma" (Graham) TERRY, which now belongs to a daughter, Mary Gladys (TERRY) Young, are letters they had written to each other. Emma Graham, who lived in Virgil City, Missouri, Cedar County, had been visiting near Protem, Missouri, Taney County, in 1889 with a brother, Herve Graham, and evidently Thomas TERRY had asked her to attend a Christmas dance with him. Thomas played the violin as she called it but he called it the fiddle. In the box with the letters is a note dated December 1889 saying she would accept his invitation. There were 13 letters to her from him and twenty to him from her. They had kept all letters numbering them 1, 2, and etc. The box they are in appears to be white stationary box and has written on it, Thomas TEREY his box. Some of his letters to her are written on beautiful stationary.
The first letter from him to her was April 24, 1890 wondering why he hadn't wrote him like she said she would and started of with "My Dear Friend" and closed with "Your Obedient Friend", Thomas TEREY. [Why he spelled TERRY with and "e" I do not know, after they married Emma put in the "r" and left out the "e" like the other Terrys did].
The first letter from Emma to Thomas was May 18, 1890 mailed at Virgil City, Missouri. The envelope was addressed to Mr. Thomas TERRY, Protem, Taney County Missouri. The letter started off with "Friend Thomas" and she let him know she did not write young men first. It appears she tried to make him jealous telling him about young men, one of them a school teacher, coming to see her. In her letter to him in June she was picking berries at $2 a week at her sisters. On the 20th, she was going to Eldorado Springs, Missouri to attend celebration of the towns birth. The Walker and Jerico Bands were to be there. She sounded like there would be lots of good music.
In July, he wrote and told her he loved her and ended the letter with "Your Best Friend", Thomas TEREY, instead of "Your Obedient Friend". He also sent her some stamps as she had complained about stamps being so high [2 cents]. She had enclosed two letters in one envelope to him. In her next letter to him she told him not to send any more stamps even though all the other young men who wrote her before sent her stamps.
In September, their letters were talking of marriage. They planned on marrying in the fall and he was going after her in a wagon to bring her things. She put him off in the next letter saying she had some sewing and quilting to do. In his letter to her October 18 he seemed to think she had found someone else and wrote and told her, "I know I am a poor boy, but what I get I make it by hard work, but God bless you I can love you just as well as if I was some big bug, poor folks have poor ways and rich folks have mean ways, but God bless you I know that I would be good to you, that is all I can say". He went on to say he would leave the 25th of October to come after her.
A letter to her November 2 and he is quite upset and thinks she is still fooling him that she had the advantage of him. He told her he had built 4 chimneys and had done 4 days work on another and had 4 more days work on it. He was wanting to start on his house.
Her letter to him of November 15 states she is not fooling him and she will be ready last of December or first of January and that she had a good many things to move and that it could all be moved in a wagon and that she would rather go that way, even though it would be cold. She mentioned that people are so much for fixing and dressing nice here in our neighborhood, especially if they are going to get married. She also enclosed a note with the letter that she heard he owed some on his place and wanted to know how much that she thought it to her interest and when he came after her to be careful of high water for it was muddy there.
November 30 he states he will spend Christmas with her if that would be all right.
In a letter to him December 25th and she is still writing "Friend Thomas", she states she had been looking for him every day, if he wasn't coming to let her know so she could make other arrangements, "if you don't want to come all right, just say so is all you have to do, and the sooner you say it the better it will be -- for if you still keep writing and don't aim to come it is making things worse instead of better.
December 30th he writes, "Emma, My Most Wholly Appreciative Friend", and says it came a snow and turned cold and he did not get a chimney built and he had to finish picking his cotton and dig potatoes. That would take 4 or 5 days. Alan Young was helping him pick cotton. His letter to her January 8th, 1891 says there is a big snow on the ground and still snowing. He was intending on catching a team to Chadwick or Springfield, Missouri then go by train to Eldorado Springs.
[Well, he finally got there and my grandparents, Thomas and Emily (Graham) TERRY were married February 8, 1891 at Virgil City, Missouri.] Sometime in 1893 her father taken sick and she with their two children went to Virgil City to help care for him. They had kept those letters also. In one to him she told him to take a jug of vinegar to his mother so it wouldn't freeze and to take the chickens to her also as the eggs would freeze. He told her in a letter not to worry about the eggs the chickens wasn't laying, tell the children I would like to see them and care for them and give them a kiss for me. She wrote back and said, "You say you care for the children but you didn't say you cared for me". He wrote and told her "I do care for the children but Still Water runs Deep." [Now I am wondering could that be TERRY or something else??????]
Thomas TERRY was living in a log cabin alone until he married. He later built a beautiful two-story gingerbread type house in Marion County, Arkansas and it is still standing in good shape. My mother, Mary Gladys (TERRY) Young, was born there and so were four of her five children, including me. ===============================================================================
THE FAMILY OF ANSEL TERRY by Mrs. Arta Blonshine 7706 Maxwell Dr. Boise ID 83704
My ancestor, Ansel TERRY, born 1797 northern Kentucky was the son of Robert and Cloe (Worrell) TERRY who married in Woodford Co. Kentucky July 1792. His parents moved to Hamilton County, Ohio around 1800 and settled in Green and Delhi townships, where Ansel grew to manhood, met and married Elizabeth the daughter of Thomas and Rachel (Thomas) Foster. Elizabeth was born in Pennsyl- vania 25 May 1798.
Ansel does not appear in any 1820 census, I believe he was in Indiana but have no proof. In 1825 according to Deed Book A, Pages 219/220 he was a resi- dent of Franklin township, Ripley County Indiana. He had returned to Delhi township, Hamilton County Ohio by 1830. He is listed in the 1830 Census (Delhi township) page 351 dwelling 234, with his father-in-law, Thomas Foster in dwelling 235 and surrounded by other in-laws. Since Thos. Foster lived on the east side of Section 23, I assume Ansel was residing on this land.
Deed Book K, page 189, Franklin County Indiana shows Ansel a resident in August 1832. Several other deeds show that Ansel remained in this area until late in 1841, when he joined the Foster family in migrating to Daviess County Missouri. The 1840 census shows him as living in Salt Creek township near the Decatur County line.
In Missouri, Ansel TERRY took up homestead land and was given a deed in 1850 [Certificate # 7.931 Dept. of Interior]. Daviess County deed books list several land transactions for Ansel, the last dated June 18, 1880 donating to Daviess County, the McClary Cemetery.
Elizabeth TERRY died 22 Feb 1845 and is buried in McClary Cemetery. In 1846 Ansel married Lydia Brown, widow of Soloman Brown, Ansel divorced Lydia in 1849 for "leaving my bead and board".
The 1850 census shows Ansel, his son Robert and nephew Newton Thomas living with or near Lewis L. TERRY [Ansel had sold part of his land to Lewis L. and may have remained for a short period -- Census page 793/4 dwelling 582].
Before 1870, Ansel went to live with his son, David N. where he remained until his death 03 Jan 1884. He is buried beside his wife and other family members in McClary cemetery on land that was once part of his farm.
Pierce's record of "The Foster Family", states that Ansel and Elizabeth were married 30 Aug 1815, but to my knowledge no record of the marriage has been found.
Family tradition is that Ansel TERRY was the most stubborn, contrary man that ever lived, a true TERRY characteristic.
Ansel and Elizabeth (Foster) TERRY had five sons. They were:
1.) Lewis I. TERRY b. 1817 (according to service record) d. 16 Apr 1888 m. prob. IN ca 1837 Cynthia Hall b. 21 Oct 1819 d. 23 Nov 1878 m. (2) 1885 America J. Kelly. He had issue by first wife.
2.) Enos A. [Ansel] TERRY b. Hamilton Co. OH 10 Aug 1819 d. Daviess Co. MO 23 Oct 1897 m. Franklin Co IN 04 Oct 1838 Pauline Eads b. KY 26 Jun 1821 d. 06 Nov 1868 m. (2) Daviess Co. MO 24 Oct 1869 Prudence Scott b. Tazwell IL 05 Feb 1827 d. Daviess Co. MO 22 May 1918. Issue by first wife.
3.) Thomas F. TERRY b. 21 Dec 1821 d. 24 Jun 1845 m. Sidney ______ b. 1822 d. 19 Sep 1845. Both buried at McClary Cemetery. No other info located on T. F.
4.) David Nelson TERRY [My great grandfather] b. Franklin township Ripley Co. IN 21 Oct 1825 d. Daviess Co. MO 26 Jun 1908 m. Daviess Co. MO 17 Dec 1846 Rachel Brown b. Henry Co. IN 14 Feb 1828 d. 14 Feb 1859 m. (2) 26 Sep 1859 Ruth Blackburn Scott b. 16 May 1831 McClean Co. IL d. Daviess Co. MO 01 Dec 1892 [My great grandmother].
5.) Robert Jackson TERRY b. Franklin Co. IN 01 Apr 1832 d. Daviess Co. MO 09 Dec 1897 m. 05 Aug 1852 Mary C. Hammond b. 16 Dec 1832 d. 16 Feb 1864 m. (2) 21 Apr 1869 Mary's younger sister, Susan Mariah Hammond b. 10 Jun 1845 d. Daviess Co. MO 21 Sep 1932.
Most of the above and many descendants are buried in Old Scotland cemetery near Jameson, MO. There are many descendants of these men still living in Daviess Co. MO. I have followed the family lines of all these sons and will be happy to share my information with anyone seeking data on these lines. -- Mrs. Arta Blonshine.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// THIS AND THAT: TERRY Miscellaneous ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
The following is a transcription of a letter from my Great Great Grandfather William TERRY to his son John TERRY my Great Grandfather. William TERRY was born 7 Nov 1785 in Hawkins Co. TN and married 1806/7 Barbara Ennis born 24 Oct 1788 Burke Co. NC and she died 15 May 1869 in Greene Co. MO. Mrs. Raymond Wray 1606 N. Willow Oak, Longview TX 75601.
19 Dec. 1848
State of Arkansas
Dear Son & Daughter Through mercy we are all well at present as far as I know for which we should be thankful and we have just received a letter from you directed to Martin TERRY dated the second of November and I also received a letter from you some time back but owing to more imbaresment I have neglected writing. I must inform you that brother John TERRY and his wife is both dead. I was at his house the fourth of October and stayed with him until the eighth. He had just buried his wife. She died the last day of September and I left Elish and Thomas and Fletcher all down with some fatal disease something like winter fever in its operations but brother John was about as he had been for four or five years past just about worn out with disease hardship and trouble but I received a few lines from them on the twentieth of October informing me that he was taken down on Friday after I left there and died on the Monday following. They have left a desolate family of eight children with only one little girl able to do their milking. They have a good improvement and considerable property but I don't know what they will do but I fear from the class of people they live among they will be swindled out of their right for they live as nigh out of the world as any place that I ever saw people living in and I am so situated at present that I con't do anything for them. I wrote a letter to John Ennes informing him of the death of his sister and I have been looking for a letter from him but I have not had none yet. Martin is on the dry mountain and I think not satisfied and consequently not likely to do much good and Findley has bought him(self) a waggon and team and is driving it this moderate winter and I have doubts of him doing well. Elisha Ennes is living on my place and people prophesying that him and me wont do well. William Harp and John Bohannan is living on their ould places and doing about as usual. Your brother William is no better of his complaint that I can see. Serena and her man is living on King's River.
As repects to the season we have had the longest drouth I ever recollect seeing and consequently light crops. The average price of corn is twenty cents and wheat fifty cents and pork from a dollar and a half to two dollars and cows from five to ten dollars and horses low as they have been for years past and money matters is a little democratical yet.
This winter has set in very rough. On the sixth of this month a sleet begun which lasted seven days and was the heaviest I ever seen in this part of the world and broke up my peach trees. Worse than the fruit ever done and in the timber is torn down until the roads is difficult to pass.
It has been some days since I begun this letter and this is the twenty fourth day of the month and the ground is covered about one inch deep in hail, snow, and ice and the timber is loaded with ice but not so heavy as the first but the day is pleasant and has the appearance of melting the ice but if the winter continues as it has begun it will make corn scarce for we have no meal. We have no grain ground in the water mill since the last of June until the tenth of this month and now the mills only grind part for the want of water and it is quite difficult getting meal yet.
I think our country in general is tolerable healthy. There has been but one death in our neighborhood. Enoch Harp's widow lost her child this fall.
People seems to be dissatisfied and selling out and moving to your coun- try. There was several of our neighbors moved out this fall and gone to Texas. Joseph Dennis and Neal Dennis and John Wright is all gone and several others wishing to sell out if times was good so that people could sell out and no one come back again Texas would be full.
I had forgot to say anything about Elijah Waltrip and family. They are living in Missouri, Barry County but I haint heard from them since August.
I don't know that I shall ever be able to come see you for I begin to feel the effects of age and can't stand hardships and my family can't do anything without me but I would be glad if you could arrange your affairs and to come and see us in the cowrse of next summer. If we should all live I think that our little burg is improving considering the hardness of the times and if the Arkansas River was navagable stream we could always get our little necessarys here at home but coffee is getting scarce. The proprietors of the new iron works is in good spirits and going on with their work but haven't got to making iron yet. Our preacher is not come onto circuits but we hear that brother Morgan is appointed to this circuit again and that brother Standford is presiding elder in place of brother Harrol and that brother Harrol is stationed at Little Rock.
I have endeavored to give satisfaction about anything that I recollect and if you should see Isaac Guest or Elisha Ball give them my respects and let them read this letter. Give our best wishes to Joseph Reed and family and all enquiring friends. I expect Martin TERRY will write you a letter shortly. I have not seen him since I lifted your letter. Owing to the bad weather ther has been no passing. And now my dear children these maybe the last lines you may ever see of my writing and I wish you to bear in mind that we are all born to die and that our friends are dropping here and there and at the farthest it cn't be long before we must follow and that our main business in this world is to prepare for the next. I wish you to write us when opportunity may offer. I must bring my letter to a close with my best wishes to you all so no more at present, we remain your loving father and mother.
William and Barbara TERRY to
John and Lucinda TERRY
[Envelope inscription - State of Texas Red River County --Clarksville p. o.-- John TERRY] [Also on the envelope in another handwriting-- Fayettsville Ark-- 25th Dec.] Notes by Mrs. Wray:
First paragraph--William TERRY (my great-great grandfather) had a brother named John TERRY, who married _______Ennes (Ennis). John had evidently been living in Arkansas for at least 4 or 5 years. Since William mentions John's health for the last 4 or 5 years, and since William stayed only 4 days on this visit, I assume they lived about one day's journey--20 to 30 miles apart and saw each other often enough for William to have some knowledge of John's health.
John's wife _____ Ennis died 30 Sep 1848 of "winter fever" John died 16 October 1848 of "winter fever".
1. Elish--From another letter, Elisha was living near Clear Creek, Elm Springs, Washington Co., Ark., on 6 May 1854.
2. Thomas--In 1860 Census of Washington Co., Ark., Elm Springs Township, Thomas gave his age as 39 (born ca 1821 in TN). He would have been 12 when his parents died.
3. Fletcher--no other information.
4. through .8 -- At least one girl "able to do the milking"
John's wife _____ Ennis had a brother John Ennis. (William TERRY's wife was Barbara Ennis. This could be her sister.)
Second and Eighth Paragraphs--Information on the Children of William TERRY and Barbara Ennis--(Brothers and Sisters of John TERRY, my great grandfather).
1. William--never married. Several letters mention that William was "afflicted"
2. A girl who died in childhood.

The following is a result of cemetery research at Rule, Haskell Co. TX by Mrs. Fredericka Raymond 1210 Ann, Weatherford, TX 76086. She is a descendant of Moses Green Berry Hill TERRY m.

Rule cemetery is located approximately 2 miles East of town. It is very well cared for. Bill Dunham, 601 Loop St. has the records. But. G.B. TERRY is not in the records nor is his wife. It looks like he remarried after Martha (Rogers) TERRY died. Both are in the Smith Family Plot.

020983 TERRY SIMMONS HILL ANDERS GILL Reference is made to your entry in the "Computerized Root Cellar", The Genealo- gical Helper, March-April, 1983. Members of the TERRY family married into my Simmons ancestry in Hunt County, Texas, on Jan 17, 1867 when Nancy Zeralda TERRY married Joel Simmons. Nancy Zerelda TERRY was the daughter of James F. TERRY who had been born in Kentucky, but whose family had moved to Illinois before moving to Texas. The first three of the children of James F. TERRY were born in Illinois. James F. TERRY was a brother to Ansalem TERRY [1800-1877], who was born in Virginia, and Andrew TERRY, also born in Virginia. In the families of these two brothers were two children named George. If you will
obtain the census records for Hunt and Fannin Counties, Texas, for the years 1860 and 1870, you will find several persons named George TERRY who could be the right age for your George [George W. TERRY son of Green Berry Hill TERRY and Eleanor Gill, EDITOR].....The lineages of these TERRY Families trace their ancestry to Josiah TERRY of Botetourt County, Virginia, who served in the Botetourt County Militia, in the American Revolution.

080983 ADAMS TERRY REED WARD LINCOLN TODD HANKS My name is Curtis Adams. My great grandmother was Amozonia TERRY. She was born in 1850 in Sabina or Clinton Co. OH. Her parents were Dr. David Henry TERRY and Mary S. Reed. The only sister of Amozonia was Samanatha. Dr. David Henry TERRY was born in Virginia and Mary S. Reed was born in Pennsylvania. the only clue I have to Dr. David's father is that he was Enic Ward TERRY. I do not know? They could have moved to Tennessee by the Forked Deer River because my ex great aunt - said that the Terrys had a great big estate on Forked Deer River in Tennes- see. Some of his brothers were Milton, Alexander etc. I understand that David went back to Virginia to go to medical school or something. What college had a medical school? He moved to Highland Co. OH then to Sabina or Clinton Co. OH. DAvid died in 1858 in Sabina OH. Amozonia TERRY married Jacob Cyrus Adams in 1869 in Sabina. Jacob was born in Greene Co. OH in 1845. In 1869-1870 Jacob, Amozonia, her other moved to Greenwood Co. or Eureka Kansas. In Jacob Cyrus Adams obituary in 1925-- it said that Amozonia TERRY his wife was the fourth cousin to Abraham Lincoln. She died in 1925 in Mound City KS or Linn Co. KS about a month before her husband Jacob died. My great Aunt said that the Terrys & the Todds were related but if that is so then TERRY & Lincolns are not related but related to Abe Lincoln's wife, Mary Todd. We will have to be related to the Hanks or Lincolns to be related to Abe Lincoln. Do you know any TERRY line that is related to Abe Lincoln? Do you know any TERRY line that is related to the Todds? Hanks? Who were David TERRY's parents, grandparents?? Any help appreciated. Curtis J. Adams, 8601 W. 90th Terrace, Overland Park KS 66212.
