Several of these families lived in close proximity to each other. Others are documented to have interacted with each other. Some are known to have interacted with common third parties.

In northern Madison County, KY., during the early years (1795-1815), Garrett Berry, William Berry (married to Sally Baxter), Thomas Berry, Wm Berry (married to Rhody Crews),  John Berry (married to Elizabeth Harris), and James Berry (married to Margaret ?), lived near each other on Muddy Creek; James H Berry (married to Sarah Grubbs), lived on Tates Creek.

Garrett Berry is documented as paying tax on Muddy Creek land that had originally been entered by Higgason Grubbs (brother of Sarah Grubbs). A James and a John Berry also are linked to land entered by Grubbs on Muddy Creek. In some census or tax documents, Muddy Creek is included the eastern division of Madison County, while Tates Creek is in the western division. Both drain the northern part of the county into the Kentucky River.

William Berry (married to Sally Baxter) is documented to be the son of Garrett Berry. This William and John Berry (married to Elizabeth Harris), moved from Madison County in about 1810 to MO., and were said to be cousins. Elizabeth Harris was related, by marriage, to Sarah Grubbs of Tates Creek.

Peter H. Berry (married to Elizabeth Ashbrook) is believed to be related to our Berry line because he and John Berry (married to Mary Grimes) were on a 1813 note to Robert Schobee. Schobee was the admin for John Berry's estate settlement in 1817. Peter Berry is listed in the estate documents, also appeared an 1814 tax list for Madison County, KY., on the same page as Garrett Berry.
