It has been a very busy year for me. We moved to Sapulpa, Oklahoma in January, 1987 and I have been trying to adjust to a new job which requires a lot of extra work at home [genealogy is a part-time interest]. I work with developmentally disabled children and we are presently engaged in a law-suit which requires court reports and hours beyond 40 per week. It has become ALMOST impossible to meet my publishing deadlines due to my schedule. -- Please accept my apologies.
You will also notice there are some new types of notes and short articles in the TFH. These are messages received from a group of computer bulletin board systems [BBS] which carry queries and other messages related to genealogy. While they are not all dealing with TERRY family research the information should be useful to members. The exciting thing is you can get answers within days and sometimes hours concerning research that others have done across the nation.
Financing the TFH is a continual problem. Genealogists seem to dig in and work in the Fall and Winter and this is the time most money for funding is received. The TFH is a BREAK EVEN SOMETIME endeavor. It requires a lot of man-hours on my part. I usually am unable to pay publishing costs and have to rely on the faith and good will of the publisher to carry me through until the Fall when renewals are received. [The computer and printer was purchased with personal money.]
There has been a dramatic increase in publishing costs paralleled by a more than usual decrease in paid membership which does not allow me to take advantage of reduced bulk mailing costs.-- You have to have 200 pieces to get a lesser rate.
To reduce costs you will note the fewer number of pages which are about 30. This is in line with most other family publications I have seen. I will publish a full 50 pages if membership increases or additional funds are received from members. If present trends continue we will continue through to December 1988. At the present time we have about 100 paid members. --- YOUR RENEWAL IS A VOTE TO CONTINUE THE TFH.
It is very important that we continue to recruit new members and that you continue to submit new information concerning Terry family research. Your financial contributions are very important and my sincere thanks to the members for their loyalty over the years. The TFH is a worthwhile effort and I certainly wish continue.

MY MOST MEMORABLE SUMMER
Myself, Debra and Emma made a quick trip to Disney World this summer which probably is what will forever be on the mind of my youngest, Emma. The electric light parade was something, but my greatest thrill, personally, was to stop by Lawrence County, Alabama and to visit the grounds of the United Terry Club near Courtland. Unfortunately, we were just a weekend away from Labor Day when all the hullabaloo surrounds this community.
I pulled into a little cafe and upon entering found a number of farmers gathered around a table. The conversation went something like this:
"I'm Mike Terry and I am editor of the Terry Family Historian, could you help me find the 'Terry Club'?"
A man smiled wryly and replied, "Usually there is one of them Terry's in here!"
"Drive down to the first stop light and turn and drive a few miles until you see a mail box. It will probably be a Terry and ask for directions."
Sure enough, the first mailbox I came to was that of a
Frank Terry. Mr. Terry and his wife were getting into a pickup truck and I got out and asked for directions to the United Terry Club. He indicated I should drive back up the road and take the first left.
He stated, "The folks at one end of the United Terry Club are Terrys and would not mind me looking around. Frank Terry indicated he was a descendant of one of "seven early Terry brothers" who came to Courtland, Alabama.
When I arrived I stopped at the first house and a lady came to the door where I asked, "If it would be okay to look around?" She replied, it was all right to look around and by the way "she was not a Terry but had married one [Gilbert Terry?]." She indicated the folks "at the top of the hill were also Terrys and I could speak with them."
I proudly posed in front of the building which stated:
United Terry Club, Inc.
August 31, 1960
I drove back to Courtland and stopped at a local drug store, and I asked the lady behind the counter what newspaper most people read in Courtland and she indicated the Moulton Advertiser. When I introduced myself, she noted "she was also married to a Terry." "Most people around here are Terrys or married one of them!"
I picked up a The Moulton Advertiser "Alabama's Oldest Weekly Newspaper" and you guessed it -- it reads somewhat like the Terry Family Historian.
Some headings included:
Under Announcements -- "Porch sale on Gordon Terry Parkway".
"Terrys host dinner for sisters' reunion"
Marriage -- "Rhonda Faye Hill, Gregory Lee Terry"
Birthday calendar -- August 22 Lynn Terry
Marriage licenses -- "Mitchell Glen Jones, 20, Hillsboro and Leeshane Terry, 21, Moulton, August 13"
"Terry taking her leaps in gymnastics" -- an article about Abby Terry a 12 year old gymnast at East Lawrence High School.
Yes, it is true what they said, "Terry's Thicker than cotton in Lawrence County"? I guess it could all be summed up by saying, it really felt good to be one of "them Terry's in Lawrence County".

Page 86 -- James Allen b. 1775 - according to Todd County, Kentucky census -- m. about 1800 Molly Hagood, daughter of Buckner and Rosanna (Archer) Hagood. Mollie died between 1840 - 1850. James made his will October 10, 1855 and died by December of that year. He left his estate to his grandson, William, and his three daughters.
The couple had nine, perhaps ten children: a daughter, Nancy, b. 1807 in South Carolina never married but lived with her parents until their deaths; a son under ten in 1810 and born in Chester County may have died young or may be William H., whose will was recorded Sept. 22, 1835 in Todd County. He had moved to Nashville, Tennessee, married, and had a son by the same name; two daughters and a son born between 1810 and 1820 were not listed in the home in 1830 census; Elisha, born 1810-1820, married Caty Ann Faulks, December 10, 1827 and may have also married Jane Whitson October 18, 1847; James Kennedy Allen, born 1814, was probably a namesake of his father's maternal uncle. He married on July 2, 1837 Sally M. Terry, daughter of William Morris (Maurice) and Elizabeth Terry. Elizabeth b. 1812, married the first time _____ Allen, and then Isom Malone of Elkton, Todd Co. They had two sons, Bishop and Jim, latter a school teacher.
James Kennedy Allen was a farmer in Todd County until 1854 when he, his wife and three children migrated with Kentucky-Tennessee wagon train to Tarrant Co., Texas. Texas was being advertised in glowing terms not only by "developers" but also by friends who had migrated earlier. Alfred Johnson had left neighboring Tennessee in 1853 and settled in Tarrant County. He was largely responsible for the Allens migrating in November 1854. The trip took a month. J. K. Allen bought farms in the western part of the county. He was a charter member of the First Christian Church of Ft. Worth, Texas. He held elected and appointed public offices at the county and state level. When the Civil War started, he returned on horseback to join his Todd County neighbors to fight for the Confederacy. Though he received a gun-shot wound in the leg, he survived. Three children had been born in Todd County; William Terry born December 12, 1842 , married Sarah Frances Grant and upon her death, her sister Theodocia; Mary Ann born May 17, 1844, married Richard King who had come in the wagon train; James Kennedy Allen, II, born November 4, 1848, married Elizabeth Jane Prewitt; Sarah Katherine Allen born Tarrant County married Gabrias Terry. The writer is a grand daughter of James Kennedy Allen II. sg. Frances Marion Allen. ------- Source: The Chester County Heritage History. References: J.

Page 379 - Sealy is one of the oldest surnames in South Carolina. They first settled near Beaufort on Edisto and Euhaw Island between 1680 and 1690. The Sealys spread from there when the back country near Chester opened up for settlement.
John Sealy was born between 1710 and 1720 in the low country of South Carolina of Irish immigrant parents. When the Chester District area opened up, he secured many original land grants. The earliest patent date was 1753. the total number of acres granted to John Sealy was about 1,200. These grants were on Sealy's Creek branch of the Sandy River about six miles west of Chester township. The closest neighbors were the Walkers, Terrys, Lees, Stokes, Mobleys and Asa Darby.
John [Sealy] married Jean Jaggers. They produced two sons (Peter and Samuel) and two daughters (Sarah and Elizabeth). Peter married twice; his second wife being Sarah Estes. Samuel's wife's name was Sarah also. Elizabeth married Henry Hardin first and second married Robert Walker. Sarah married John Terry.
John Sealy died in 1791 and his wife Jean died in 1796 both in Chester. ------- Source: The Chester County Heritage History.

THOSE GERMAN TERRY'S YOU HAVE BEEN HEARING ABOUT!
It is always good to find the last American link in a line. It appears, from the following bits and pieces, Phillip Terry of Beaufort, South Carolina was a descendant of early German families. The other guess might be he came with a number of German families to the colonies.

Old newspaper clippings and articles have a tendency to fade, yellow, and sometimes fall apart in your hands. Here is how you can preserve them. Dissolve a milk of magnesia tablet in a quart of club soda overnight. Pour into a pan large enough to accommodate a flattened newspaper. Soak the newspaper one hour, remove and pat dry. Estimated life; 200 years. Chemically, the magnesium oxide combines with the carbon dioxide in the soda to form magnesium carbonate which neutralizes acids in the paper that cause deterioration.

DESCENDANT OF PARSHALL TERRY Larry McGee 3406 Silverside Rd. Wilmington DE 19810.
My Great Grandfather McGee settled in Oklahoma. They moved away to Arizona in 1898. My Grandfather McGee married the Granddaughter of Marilla Terry in Southern Utah. I think the family first went to Oklahoma before it was opened to regular settlement. Did they call that the Oklahoma Land rush? Anyway most of the records say place of birth 'Indian Territory'. At that point James Robinson McGee (my Great Grandfather) and his family entertained the Mormon Missionaries as they traveled by foot through Oklahoma. They joined in about 1897 and then moved west the next year by wagon. Don't know much about side branches of theirs but I guess McGee was a big name in Oklahoma for awhile. (Kerr- McGee??)
I am a research CHEMIST at the DuPont Experimental Station in Wilmington Delaware. We have lived in Delaware since 1981. I received my PhD degree in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from CALTECH working with Professor Dave Evans. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Utah working with Dr. W. W. Epstein. From 1972 to 1974 I interrupted my college education to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) in Hamburg and Berlin Germany. At that time I became fluent in German. One attempt to retain this language ability is the DEUTSCH Echomail conference.
With my wife Paula, we have three kids, born in 1978, 1980 and 1987. In my spare time between working and sysoping, I am a Webelos Scout leader.
Thanks for your interest in our system. I'll be glad to answer any questions that I can or refer you to a better source if I can't. I look forward to hearing from you. --- Sirius 0.50 * Origin: Chemist's ComPort 302-479-0302 Trailblazer to 9600 bps

Mike, I found a Talitha Terry who married William Kimzey Hightower in Greenville Co, SC. Do you have this info? Did you get my message about probate of Lucy Terry Hightower's estate? I found a will at Hendersonville, NC for her husband Epaproditus Hightower. I didn't find anything on her. The J. J. G. Hightower mentioned in the estate papers was their son.

Here's a suggestion for taking a good picture of a tombstone without harming the marker or the environment.
Buy a bundle of charcoal sticks and a box of ordinary chalk; the kind used to write on a blackboard. Neither cost much. Charcoal sticks can be bought at an art store, chalk at a dime store.
Use an old tea strainer with a plastic bag taped to it and grate the chalk through the strainer, into the bag, without any mess; or simply mash the chalk into powder form.
Trace the printer on the tombstone with the charcoal stick. Pat powdered chalk onto the tombstone and then start tracing lightly over the printing again with the charcoal stick. You are now ready to take your picture.
It is not necessary to remove the charcoal or the chalk; the next rain will wash it away with no harm to the stone or the environment. --- ConfMail v3.1 * Origin: OPTOMETRY_ONLINE - UMSL School of Optometry (1:100/514)

I am planning a family reunion for descendants of Mary Lattha Terry born 1852, New Haven, Connecticut died 1886, Wayne Co. IA. She was descended from Samuel Terry "the Immigrant" (b. 1632) from Barnet, London, England. I would like to extend the invitation to any descendant of his that wants to make the journey to Thousand Springs, Idaho during the week of August 6-14, 1988.
Interested persons should write to me or call for more details and to get on my mailing list. Thousand Springs is in a valley along the Snake river that was a stoping place on the Oregon Trail. There are several campgrounds with full hook-ups at hot springs and spas. Some of the other activities planned are: the best trout fishing in the world, a one day float trip down the Salmon River and many picnics.
We already expect persons from Oregon, Washington, California, Arizona, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Tennessee, Minnesota, Colorado and Iowa. I am hoping to add many more to the list, the more the merrier. Bob Cox, 1071 S.E. Fairview, Olympia WA 98501. Telephone 206-357-9504.

RESEARCH STATUS REPORT JESSEE TERRY OF ROANE COUNTY, TENNESSEE by Gene Fricks 26 Windmill Drive Clementon NJ 08021-5821
Since the last report appeared in the September 1986 TFH, additional information has been turned up. While none of it reveals our subject's antecedents, it does correct some erroneous data, resolves a few speculations, and gives us more information regarding some descendants.
Hannah Price MCNAIR, Jessee's wife, was a descendant of David MCNAIR II, who settled in Augusta County, Virginia (near Staunton) about 1738.  David and an unnamed wife had one recorded son, Daniel, who married Hannah -- in 1741 and died in 1791 in Augusta County, Virginia.
Daniel and Hannah MCNAIR had four recorded children, the youngest of whom, David, married Elizabeth ALLEN on 8 November 1786.  More particular to our search is son James, who was baptized 29 April 1749  and married Martha Price as mentioned in the previous report.
James and friends Gilbert Christian and John Anderson explored into what became Hawkins County, Tennessee in 1769. James lived near these friends in Sullivan County, Tennessee before 1794. His service during the Revolution in the North Carolina militia has been documented.  Investigation into the Price connection is continuing.
The previous report mentioned that Jessee TERRY does not appear in the 1802, 1805, nor 1808 Roane County, Tennessee tax lists. Likewise, search of the 1807 Knox County, Tennessee tax list fails to reveal his name, although Micagh TERRY with 460 acres in Capt. Childs' company and John TERRY with 130 acres in Capt. Scott's company are founded  Similarly, he is not found in the 1812 Knox County tax list, although his father-in-law, James MCNAIR, appears in Capt. Jackson's company with 500 acres. 
Jessee and Hannah MCNAIR TERRY's eldest daughter, Martha, married Hezikiah LOVE Jr. as previously reported. Hezikiah Jr. was born 15 April 1796 in Roane County. Hezikiah Sr. was born 10 October 1751/52, Chester County, South Carolina and died 11 July 1833 in Roane County.  Hezikiah Sr. married firstly Elizabeth Cato / Cartamount / Cartmount in 1783 and secondly Nancy Duren in 1789 (born about 1768 South Carolina; died 1841-50, Benton County, Alabama). No children by Elizabeth are known. The children
previously reported were all by Nancy.
1A LOVE, Elizabeth (probably named for paternal aunt Elizabeth LOVE) born 29 March 1822, Roan County, Tennessee; married 12 December 1839, Daniel R. Duggen. 1B LOVE, Mary born 28 December 1823, Roane County. 1C LOVE, Robert born 14 January 1826, Roane County. 1D LOVE, Josiah T. born 8 October 1828, Roan County. 1E LOVE, Hezikiah (III) born 2 March 1831, Roane County. 1F LOVE, William born 18 March 1833, Roane County. 1G LOVE, John C. born 30 may 1835, Roane County. Died 1876, Kingston, Tennessee. Operated mercantile business in Kingston with sister Mary. 1H LOVE, Jesse Richard born 13 November 1837, Roane County, married 7 March 1867, Martha Louisa Hotchkiss. 1I LOVE, Hannah Price born 13 November 1837, Roane County. 1J LOVE, Wiley born 19 July 1840, Roane County; married 1878 Sarah Webster.
Gilbert Christian, Jessee's son-in-law and Mary TERRY's husband, may have been the son of Robert Christian, the militia captain from Sullivan County.
His mother is presently thought to be Mary Adair, daughter of John Adair, first commissioner of Knoxville , although additional work is required to firmly establish this relationship. John Adair was born 1732 in County Antrim, Ireland. With his wife, Ellen Crawford Adair, and children, he came to America about 1771, settling in Baltimore. In 1772 they removed to Pennsylvania and in 1773 to what became Sullivan County, Tennessee. In 1779, North Carolina Governor Caswell appointed Adair entry-taker of Sullivan County, to collect fees from the settlers for the lands granted. Participation of the over-mountain men in the battle of Kings Mountain in 1780 was made financially possible when Adair turned over about $13,000 in public funds to John Sevier to purchase military equipment. North Carolina granted Adair 400 acres in recognition of his services . on 16 June 1792. Governor Blount of the Southwest Territory appointed Adair a justice of the peace for Knox County. He became a member of the first board of trustees of Blount College (later the University of Tennessee) in 1794 and a member of the Tennessee constitutional convention in 1796. Adair became an elder of the First Presbyterian Church upon its organization. He died 24 February 1827 in Knox County and is buried with his wife on a knoll on their old homestead, now part of Lynnhurst cemetery.
Robert Christian was born about 1765 and died 1840-1850
in Roane County. He was the son of Gilbert and Margaret Anderson Christian. Gilbert (born about 1735 Augusta County, Virginia) moved from the Staunton, Virginia area to settle near Ingle's Ferry on the New River, at a place called Dunkard's bottom about 1774. . Gilbert was granted 250 acres in Sullivan County on 23 October 1782.  A well- known Indian fighter and active in governmental affairs, Gilbert died of fever in Knoxville in November 1793 while returning from Hightower's campaign against the Indians. 
Gilbert was the son of Robert (died 1794, Augusta County, Virginia) and Isabella Tiffin Christian. Robert served as a militia recruiting officer in 1732. 
The progenitor of this line was Gilbert Christian (born about 1678, British Isles: died after 1756, Augusta County, Virginia). Chalkey indicates that he married Elizabeth (or Margaret?) Richardson about 1702/03 in Ireland.  He settled on Christian's Creek, near Staunton, in 1732. 
Earnest TERRY provided some information and thoughts on the previous progress report that are much appreciated. Jessee TERRY's on, William Price TERRY, was born in 1816, not 1809. His first and only wife, Elizabeth Gilbert, was born in 1821 and they were married 26 November 1840. William died about 1865, not 1899. The 1850 and 1860 censuses provide the birth years. The 1870 Knox County, Tennessee census lists Elizabeth and children. The last and youngest child Lucy, was born in 1863.
Earnest points out that the Winston Garth TERRY (WGT) bible record is seriously flawed and cannot, apparently, be trusted in all respects. The William Price TERRY referred to lived 1790 - 1860 in Morgan County, Alabama, married Mary Louise Turner; he had a brother Wyley (died 1850, Morgan County) who married Malinda T. Bush on 1 November 1838. This Wyley had two sons William and Wyley. Earnest gives the birthplace of William Price (1790) and his brother as Virginia. While in Morgan County, they lived close to Henry TERRY; Earnest believes they were Henry's sons. Henry appears as a branch of one of Earnest's lines of research.
Winston Garth TERRY and his brother Henry Bynum TERRY were sons of William Price TERRY (1790).
Earnest hypothesized that Josiah TERRY, husband of Sarah F. Austin, is another son of Jessee TERRY. Josiah was born about 1800, lived in Talladega County, Alabama in 1827, and would have been of age to sign his sister Mary's
marriage bond. He posits the following children for Jessee and dates:
Josiah born 1800 Martha born 1801 Mary born 1805 John C. born 1808 William Price born 1816 Sarah born 1817 Myra born 1820 Jesse born 1822 Louisa born 1829 James born ????
Note the gaps in dates and the fact that Louisa was born when her mother was about 48 years old -- not impossible, but unusual. The previous report omitted the children of John and Louisa TERRY Ferguson as given in the 1860 Blount County Census: twin sons Josiah and Wiley, born 1855.
The journal of Richard Green Waterhouse provides [15a] details of a journey in December 1808. On Tuesday, 13 December, amidst snow, Waterhouse mentions passing the Standing Stone and "thence to Jesse TERRY's." A map held in the Library of Congress (F 16474) titled "Central Upper Cumberland Section of Tennessee in Pioneer Times 1783-1830" drawn by Alvin B. Wirt and accessioned on 25 March 1954, shows the Standing Stone on the Cumberland Pike about 12 miles northwest of Flat Rock in Roane County. This Jessee TERRY would have been located about 3-5 miles west of Standing Stone in the next county. This may provide a clue as to where Jessee TERRY was located prior to his first appearance eon the Roane County tax list of 1814.
Jessee, Jessee's son, acquired the 325 acre homestead probably by inheritance. Jesse`s death date of 1893, given by his son William Isaac TERRY, is apparently in error as shown by the 1887 Roane County tax list. In the 1888 list, the property is listed under "Jessee TERRY heirs." Since the list was compiled in June, this homes in somewhat on a date. Jesse's burial site remains undiscovered. The property was sold for taxes in 1901 with a Josiah TERRY acting for the family.  More data has been assembled regarding Jesse's children.
8B. TERRY, William Isaac born 28 January 1874 near Kingston, Roane County, Tennessee. He moved to Knoxville where he married Minnie Anne Courtney on 23 December 1896, Isaac Miller, M.G. . He, his mother and sisters, and his wife joined the Greystone Presbyterian Church 28 August 1898; later, on 6 March 1910, William, Minnie, and Ellen Fritts TERRY joined the Ft. Sanders Presbyterian Church.  William married a second time but without children
after Minnie's death on 2 December 1939. He died 11 February 1949; both he and Minnie are buried at New Gray Cemetery, Knoxville, Tennessee.
8C. TERRY, Rosa Ellen married Leonidas ("Lee") Clark at Greystone Presbyterian Church 26 October 1899 (new date). 
8D. TERRY, Albert J. has two birth dates given: 18 November 1878  or 20 December 1879 . Interestingly, the source for both was his wife. He joined the US War Department as a laborer on 18 April 1900 at Chattanooga, Tennessee, advancing to steam engineer on 14 December 1911. On 20 February 1920, he became a hydraulic foreman at the War Department's Wilson Dam, Florence, Alabama where he remained until November 1929. . He married Ellen O. "Birdie" Young in 1903, who was born in 1882, Alabama, and died in 1915.  In the 1910 census, he was living at 421 Cherry Street, Florence.  Apparently Albert was assigned to the Muscle Shoals Works, for his children's birthplaces are given as Alabama. At some point between 1915 and 1920, Albert married Jessie Pearl, who was born about 1890. At the time of his death on 19 February 1930, the family lived at 437 N. Cherry Street. Albert J. TERRY is buried at Florence Cemetery.
The search for Jessee TERRY, his antecedents, and descendants has been wide ranging with a number of interesting byways. While we have not accomplished the objective yet, we have shed some light on collateral lines that will be of value to other TERRY searchers. Another progress report is promised and information would be appreciated from any source.

'ELIZABETH ROSS' HEARING HELD IN WASHINGTON
A hearing was held June 24 in Washington, D.C., relative to a complaint filed by the U.S. Postal Service against American Genealogies, Inc. (and a number of associated companies and individuals), a company that has used the signature of "Elizabeth Ross" on materials soliciting orders for its family research-oriented books.
Three witnesses appeared at the hearing, each of whom had purchased a book from "Elizabeth Ross" in the expectation that the book would provide information about his personal family history.
In a separate but related action, the Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the middle District of Pennsylvania issued a preliminary injunction directing the Postal Service to hold all mail addressed to P.O. Box 5300, Scranton PA 18505, which contains orders for books, during the pendency of the administrative proceeding. The preliminary injunction requires the company to accept all books returned by customers for refund.
The proceedings confirmed that "Elizabeth Ross" is a fictitious person and that some of the people involved in American Genealogies, Inc. were previously associated with Beatrice Bayley, Inc. a company found to be in violation of the same postal law in September 1986.
Anyone having complaints relating to dealings with American Genealogies, Inc. should contact Postal Inspector Gary Claytor, c/o Regional Chief Postal Inspector, P.O. Box 3000, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004-3609.
The National Genealogical Society has been closely involved in the the complaint process and made this report in the July-August NGS Newsletter.
Despite the hearing and the preliminary injunction, readers of "Genealogy Week" have written and enclosed cards for almost identical offers dated as recently as August 12; but signed by "Mary Whitney" and sent from (a surname) Across America Coordinator, 306 Easton Road, Ottsville, PA. 18942, the postal permit paid at Ottsville. Earlier, "Mary Whitney" offers came from "Genealogy Room" at the same address, and were mailed on a Presort First Class U.S. Postage Paid Permit from Scranton, PA.
We have written to the Postal Inspector named above to advise him of this latest offer. -- Editor. ------ Source: Antique Week, Monday, August 31, 1987 - 23B.
