Terry Family

Surnames: Terry, Fleming
I'm hoping to find some information on Enoch Marvin Terry & family. Enoch and his wife Sarah along with children Ethel, Annie and Phillip were in Amelia when the World War 1 draft card was filled out June 1917. Enoch's brother Mordecai F Terry was also in Amelia at this time. Both Enoch and his brother were born in Surry NC. Parents of Enoch I have as Thomas E & Sarah Fleming Terry. I'm not sure if this is the same Thomas Terry that's buried in Anchor Baptist Church Cemetery.

Any info is appreciated.

Oh my....
Looked into your inqury, found basically the same info. you posted.
Got to looking at records.... whoew!
I am back to 1810 in the Terry lineage.
Will post later after gathering all that is found.
seems the family started in VA (so far), down to NC, and back to Va, and on to Richmond, where both brothers are buried.

Enoch and Mordecai are very Bibkical names, and Mordeciai's middle name is his mother's maiden name.
then it gets all tangled up, with the Flemmingng , and McCraw/McCrray and Terry name.
Will post later.

This is marginally related, but do you have any information on Sarah, Enoch Marvin Terry's wife? I descend from Sarah and her first husband William Martin Johnson. I cannot find anything on either of their parents. Sarah was a widower by 1910.

I am trying to get info about the family of Enoch and Nannie Terry. In your search did any of the Terry men serve during the Civil War?

I don't understand the 1920 list of members of the Terry household. My father John David Terry was born in Oct. 1917. He is not listed among the children in the household.
