Hi Bart - we're related!! I haven't really worked it out yet but I think you might be my (1/2?)gr-uncle.
Benjamin Franklin Berryhill is my gr-gr-grandfather. His daughter, Elizabeth was my gr-grandmother and her daughter, Birdie Ray Crosby was my grandmother. I have been STUCK!, as far as Benjamin F. Berryhill and Zena, for a long time. Any more specific info. would truly be appreciated.
For instance: Do you know anything more about B F Berryhill? I didn't know he was part of the Trail of Tears. I remember my grandmother showing me pictures of her relatives in full tribal dress but do not remember who she said they were. Do you have dates or know where Zena Ann Cooper was born, or who her parents were? Or when and where she died? Also, when did B F Berryhill marry your gr-grandmother, Mary Alice, and where? And do you have dates of birth and places for Walter, Clem and Roby. Do you have more info. on Mary, Lucy, or Ida (is Ida male or female?). Etc., etc. My question list could go on forever.
I am SO excited to finally find someone who knows something, as well as I am related too. My grandparents and my father are deceased so there aren't any info. avenues left for me as far as geneology goes. Any sources and any info. that you have I would love to have. Thank you so much for your reply!! My e-mail is: email@example.com
. I do not have your e-mail and would like to have it if that is alright with you.
