Record of the Family of James Berry of the 2nd Generation, from the family papers of Baxter Bell Berry (1807-1891), a son of Samuel Berry (1780-1855) and Anny Weir (1784-1834). Samuel Berry was a son of James Berry and Elizabeth McCutchen. Several handwritten documents can be traced through descendants of Baxter Bell Berry and were copied, probably from the bible of Samuel Berry on 6 March 1852 in Menard Co, Illinois. Original documents in possession of Jim Panttaja, Senior Vice President, Engineering, SecuraTrak, 55 Hawthorne Street, Suite 440, San Francisco, CA 94105

Transcription of Samuel Redus & Martha Wilson Hutton Family Bible, from the Family Files of Julie Rambo, 15 Jan 2002 email Julie Rambo  via Patrick Thomson,  Martha Wilson (Hutton) Redus was daughter of Mary Berry/Leonard Hutton. This bible record is NOT the bible of James Berry/Elizabeth McCutchen, but is instead a transcription of the bible that Martha Hutton Redus commenced when she started her married life and recorded her siblings and grandparents. Annie Tait Jenkins [need to re-find and outline relationship here] transcribed her grandmother’s bible in early 1900s and clearly made a transcription error when writing or typing Elizabeth Berry died Nov 12, 1720. Actual date is probably 1790 rather than 1720. All of the other dates of death for inferred grandparents are in the late 1790s and 1800s, including the subsequent 17 Feb 1804 death date for James Berry. Given the subsequent 1791 marriage of James Berry to Martha Wilson and their 1798 sale of a portion of his Property Survey #1, a 1790 death date for Elizabeth is probably correct.
