Hi Laura,

Benjamin Franklin Berryhill was my great-grandfather.

He was born 2 Jan 1846 in Buchanan County, MO (as a result of the forced relocation of the Creeks from GA, the "Trail of Tears."

His first wife was Zena Ann Cooper, with whom he had Elizabeth (B. 1870 in MS), Mary (1874, MS), Lucy (?, MS) and Ida Estelle (1880, Buchanan Co, MO)

Ida is interesting, because the famous "Glen Pool," the largest Oklahoma oil strike up to that time, was found on her 160 acre "head-right" that she received as a result of the Dawes Commission settlement of Creek claims (circa 1896).

BF later married Mary Alice Ashford and had Walter, Clem and Roby (my grandmother).

Hope this helps, write if you need more.
