bullet  General Notes:


I'm oubtful that this is the correct William to be the son of Thomas Berry Sr. Thomas' will identified a son, William, in such a way as to indicte that William was still living in 1812. He identified his son, John, in such a way as to indicate that John was decd (1810).

This William Berry paid taxes in Clark County, KY., between 1793 and 1796. His child, Francis, was bound out at 11 yrs old, in 1798, and the estate data is for 1800. So it appears that Wm died in 1797.

There is a William Berry who, in 1813, signed a note with John Martin to John Judy. Is John Martin the same as married Wm Berry's widow? If so, is this second William related to the first or the son of Thomas Berry Sr? John Judy appears to be related to the Judy that was evicted with our ancestor, John Berry, from land on Stoner's Fork in Clark County.
