A Sprayberry died in SC about this time and did not leave a will. There has a huge legal battle over his estate. Most of the family changed their name to Spray and moved to TN. If you can get tied to this family. I have Sprayberry data. John

I know this is an old post but am looking for the Spray families that moved to TN,GA then back to TN. Mainly James listed in the 1820 census and living in Ga. I am searching for my grandfather, John, who I think is the one listed as divorced as I know he left my grandmother shortly after my mother was born in April of 1918. I have been unable to locate any info on him. Anything you have on the TN Spray family will be appreciated.

Mary, I have done an extensive research on the Sprayberry/Spraberry family. We have found that a James Sprayberry died in South Carolina in 1820, did not leave a will and there was extensive legal ligation over his estate. It SEEMS, that his decendants dropped the berry from their names, moved to Tennessee and beyond.
It may take DNA to prove this. Sorry, tis the best I can do. John P Spraberry Lubbock, TX

My name is Beth and my grandfather was John Spray son of James O and Fannie, his siblings are Cassie,Mary L, Stonewall and Homer and he had a son, Luther. He was born in TN in 1892. I found them in the 1920 census in Ga and he is shown as "divorced". He apparently left shortly after my mother was born in 1918. I have found no marriage, divorce or birth cetificate for my mother. She was told that was her father's name but nothing els. I assume there were major problems since nobody will talk about it. If anything you have regarding your Mary b. 1803 in SC matches any of these names, please let me know. Thanks!
