My Great - Great - Grandmother -
Mildred Berry
Died September 26, 1856
in Glasgow, Barren Co., KY.
Born March 22, 1798
in Glasgow, Barren Co., KY.
      Her marriage is on file in Barren Co., KY. Sur. James Leeper (He moved from Hawkins Co.,TN. also.) On 1850 Barren Co. census she is living with her son John. It gives her age as 50. Evidently she lied about her age. Birthdate I have is from her son John's Bible. It also lists her birth as VA. In 1852 "Milly" Church was awarded 40 acres of Bounty land, as the widow of Veteran of War of 1812. In 1856 she was awarded an additional 160 acres. Warrant number was 57,268 and applications were numbered 88112 and122864. Family papers state that she is buried beside her husband in the church family cemetery. Grave marked with fieldstone.
 
 
My Great - Great - Great Grandfather -
George Woods Berry
Born June 26, 1756
in Albermarle Co., VA.
Died 1849
in Barren Co., KY.
From "Times of Long Ago, A History of Barren Co., KY," by Franklin Gorin:
     Settlements were made all over the county from 1798 - 1800. Among those persons who located in the immediate vicinity of Glasgow was George Berry.
     George Berry settled at a cave springs one and a half miles from Glasgow, nearly opposite the residense of Rev. James Brooks. For a year or two loud exposions frequently occurred in the cave, accompanied by a loud noise like thunder. They were distinctly heard in town, sometimes several in a day, and then again none for weeks and months. Finally they ceased and they never ocurred since 1807 or '08. Diligent search was made to ascertain the cause, but no discoveries were ever made.
     From notes by Martha Powell Reneau, this cave is on the farm now (1996) owned by Charles R. Wininger. It is on the farm known as "the old Darter place". It can be reached by driving through Mr. Wininger's farm, or it can be reached from Reynolds Road, although there is no road to it.
    

      George Berry was in Barren Co. by 1802 when he first began paying taxes on 100 acres of second rate land on Beaver Creek. He came from
Albermarle Co., VA. On July 26, 1802, he gave power of  attorney to William J. Wood "to sell my interest in two tracts of land in Albermarle Co. in the state of VA., lying and being on the waters of Michams River". At least part of this was land he had bought from his father, Bradley Berry on Sept. 9, 1790, and recorded in Deed Book 10, page 76, Albermarle Co., VA. The power of attorney to William J. Wood is recorded in Deed Book A, page 109, Barren Co., KY. dated July 26, 1802.
     George Berry was married in Albermarle Co. on Dec. 21, 1787 to Sarah Clack, daughter of Moses Clack. Her name was misspelled as 'Clark' in the marriage register.
     As in so many instances in the early days, the first child of George & Sarah Clack Berry arrived before their marriage. This often happened in sparsely populated areas where a circuit riding preacher was all that was available. The young couple would make their intentions known to their families, and live together as man and wife until the preacher came around again to make it legal. Sometimes he would marry several couples at the same time.
