My gggrandfather was born 12 Sep 1816, probably Clark Co., Ky., died 8 Aug 1870, Union Co., Ky., married 19 Mar 1839, Winchester, Clark Co., Ky., Caroline Elizabeth Cast, born 15 Jan 1818, Clark Co., died 15 Feb 1868, Boyd Co., Ky., d/o Marty Patsy Sympson and Amon Cast.
According to the family he had a brother or uncle named David Berry who died in Union Co., Ky., born 1804 Princess anne Co., Va., married 1831, Bourbon Co., Ky., Lorella Reed, lived in Clark Co., in 1830's, moved to Union Co., Ky., where he died.
Thomas Joseph Berry and his family moved from Clark Co., to Boyd Co., before 1860. He was a carpenter by trade, had a hardware store in Boyd Co., was one-armed. He was a Mason. Have been unable to definitely tie him into any other family in Clark Co. His children:
Mary Houston (Elizabeth) Berry my great-grandmother, b. 15 Feb 1840, Winchester, d. 24 Feb 1909, Hood Co., Tx., m. 5 Jul 1866, Ashland, Ky., William Joseph Anderson.
Amon E. Berry never marr., served in Union Army in Civil War, buried in Union Co.
James Thomas Lewis Berry b. 3 Jun 1846, Winchester Ky. d. 29 Jan 1880 Webster Co., Ky., m. 3 Jan 1869, Evansville, In., Nancy Marshall Clarke. His ch. all ended up in Texas.
Any information would be welcome. Since you are from Clark Co., thought maybe you might know something that others might not. I have been to Winchester two or three times looking for information. This was back in the 1970's when I first started looking for the Berrys. I have a copy of the information from the Bible of Thomas Joseph Berry and his wife Caroline Elizabeth Cast. Thanks so much. Dorothy.
