Genealogy of the Berry and Associated Families
Part 1
The First Four Generations of the Scotch-Irish

Berry Family

in Augusta, Rockbridge and Washington Counties, Virginia

 

 

**Note**

 

The third generation of this Berry lineage is being actively researched by the Berry Team. Since the number of individuals in this generation is much greater than the first two generations, the amount of primary source material that must be acquired and sifted through has increased accordingly. Consequently, the research time-pipeline for this generation is much longer. Because of the increased effort involved, we are posting primary sources for the timelines of the individuals as we reach a point in the research for each individual where most of the data that definitively identifies their place in time and space has been acquired and positively assigned. The rest of the analysis will be completed at a later date. Please stay tuned over the next few months, as primary source data for the third generation will be posted to this site as it becomes available.
