The DEWBERRY family below is NOT indexed on the 1900 Census but they ARE in McNairy Co. TN. as shown. There are DERRYBERRYs but no other DEWBERRYs in McNairy Co. and Wm. H.'s youngest daughter Arlin or Arlan was born in MS. The mother of Wm. H.'s first 6 children probably died btwn 1891 & 1893 when he married Nannie UNKNOWN. His oldest dau , Mary, married a Blackshire and they are living next to Wm. H.'s family on the 1900 McNairy Co. TN, census.
Wm. H. DEWBERRY is my great grandfather and he CONSISTANTLY reports his & his parents birthplace as AL. I have never found the county, nor have I found him on any AL census. He is found in Lamar Co., TX in 1910 and in Fanninc Co. TX in 1920 & 1930.. Wm. H's daughter Cora LEE married John Thomas HAYES' in 1898 and died in CA in 1947. Her interment record lists her mother's maiden name as SAVAGE. This is the ONLY mention I've found of my SAVAGE great great grandmother but her reported birth state is ALWAYS AL..
Wm. H's daughter Biddie DEWBERRY is my great grandmother. Biddie married Jesse Lee WREN, b. 1891 in McNairy Co. TN and she died in 1926, leaving 4 young children. I found her buried in the Hickory Grove Cem. in Lamar Co. TX between her father and her half-bro Lester DEWBERRY.
I would cherish any information on this Alabama DEWBERRY family. Great grandmother, Biddie DEWBERRY, married Jesse Lee WREN, b. 1891 in McNairy Co., TN. I also have married names for the 2 daughters by Nannie UNKNOWN.
