Andrew Berry (son of Benjamin Berry) Perry Co. Tennessee, d. 1915

Classification: Death
Surnames: Berry
This is the death certificate of Andrew Berry (1865-1915), Linden, Perry County, Tennessee. Andrew was the son of Benjamin Basil Berry (1826-1887).

I am looking for ideas on field #11: Birthplace of Father.

I have no clues on this; no information on the background of Benjamin Berry. I'm also having some trouble deciphering the Cause of Death in field #17 but that's less important.

Thank you for any suggestions you can give. Reading these old documents is the weakest point in my research skills.

According to the census, Benjamin (listed as BB Berry in 1870 and 1880) was born in Tennessee. My one guess is the birthplace says "as a bove" meaning the same as Andrew. I am not totally sure on that.

The cause of death is Emphysemia and pulmonary abscess.
