                            EDITOR'S NOTES
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          
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 
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,          
     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 
     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.
PAGE (105)


     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. 
     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.

                 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 
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.]
PAGE (110)

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]

Heirs listed:
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.

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.

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

Mary Gomen in Granville Co. NC 19 Apr 1784.

My wife Sarah TERRY.  My children:  Champness TERRY;  David TERRY; Sarah TERRY,

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.

     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 
     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.
PAGE (119)
     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.
PAGE (121)
     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.

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

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.
PAGE (128)


     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.

[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".
Eight Children:
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 
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.
3. Martin-- married Mary Ann Reed
4. Melinda-- married Hugh Findley
5. John-- married Lucinda Reed
6. Nancy--married William Harp
7. Matilda--married Elisha Ennes (Ennis)
8. Hettie (Easter)--married Elijah Waltrip
9. Mary Elizabeth (Betsey)--married John Bohannan

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

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

Although  I now live in Brattlesboro VT I am originally from Assonet MA and  am 
of  the 9th Generation of Terrys of that town.  The first was Thomas TERRY  the 
same  who  emigrated from London in 1635 on the James with his brothers  Robert 
and  Richard.  In  my research of the family I came across the Notes  of  TERRY 
Families in the U.S.  by Stephen TERRY and it mentioned that a Stuart TERRY  of 
Southold  NY a descendant of both Thomas and Richard was preparing a book about 
the families.  Of course this was some time ago.  Was the book ever finished???
