Patrick & Jane(Abbott) BERRY came from Scott Co. Ind... anyway that is where they married in 1839. Their children John & Charlotte born in Indiana 1840's came to Fulton County, IL with their parents before the 1850 census was taken. Son Albert Berry b. 1850, Sophronia b. 1855(my2nd g-grandmother) ,Henry b. 1857, and Sarah b. 1858 ,I believe were born in Farmington twp. Fulton Co IL.
Some birth years are off for John could be 1841 to 1844, Charlotte 's birth year is 1844. John is listed with his parents in the 1860 census & is no where to be found in 1870 ,I cannot find him in another census but his funeral home record says he was living on S. 7th Street in Canton, IL at the time of his death and a widower. Charlotte remained single & worked as a hotel cook she died in 1907. Albert married Jennie(Butler). Sarah married Thomas GRUBB. Sophronia married Philip Wells in 1871 and was widowed in 1888, she later married Thomas Howard Yocum. In search of more information on John BERRY, did he marry & have children? And what happened to Henry Berry did he marry?
Lots of BERRY & ABBOTT families came from Scott Co. Indiana about the same time and lived in Fulton Co. IL in the Lewistown area, were they related? Anyone still researching this family and descendants of Patrick & Jane(Abbott) Berry and willing to share & compare notes? Thanks, Tina
