        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a7h4], daughter of Caleb Cherry, was born around the mid-18th Century in Norfolk Co VA. She had apparently not married by the time her father's will was written in 1788. (28ap)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a8i4], daughter of Solomon Cherry and Sofia _____ (Staton?) of Pitt and Edgecombe Counties NC, was probably born in the 1760s.

        Mrs Elizabeth Cherry [unknown], was born around 1765 and was apparently widowed by 1810. She was living in Bertie Co in 1810 with a daughter, and grandchildren. She was the head of her home, and owned nineteen slaves. If the young man in her home was the owner, he would have been the head of the household. Therefore the young couple in Elizabeth's home was probably a daughter and son-in-law. Elizabeth's daughter was-

1.     dau Cherry, b 1785-1794, had married in the early or mid-1800s to a man a few years older. He was born between 1766 and 1784. If they were a typical couple, the wife was two or three years younger than the husband, so her birth was likely about 1786 and his was about 1783. They had children by 1810-

        a.     girl _____, b 1801-1810

        b.     son _____, b 1801-1810

        Elizabeth "Betsy" Cherry [C1a8p2], daughter of Willis W Cherry and Sarah _____ of Duplin Co NC, was born about 1775 in Duplin Co NC. She married Jesse Millard on 21 December 1795 in Duplin Co. Jesse was born by 1775 (early 1770s?). He was in Duplin Co in 1800 through 1820, and died in September or October 1822. Jesse left a will in Duplin Co dated 17 July 1822, which was probated in the following October. In the will he named his "beloved wife Betsey Millard" (received the land next to John Bennett), three sons, and four daughters; all daughters were named with Millard as a last name. Jesse signed his name on the will. Witnesses were Peter Wooten and John Bennett. In 1830 Elizabeth was still in Duplin Co, with four boys/young men in her home; she was not there in 1850. Since Jesse named only three boys in his will, and Kenan was already living on his own, the two youngest must have been grandsons, perhaps children of her son Charles. Her children were-

a.     Kenan Millard, b 1796-1798

b.     Charles Millard, b 1799

c.     Sarah Millard, b 1795-1800

        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a8f6], daughter of Charles Cherry and Winifred Mercer, was born between 1775 and 1784 in Beaufort Co NC. She probably was not married in 1805. (87,4ape)


        Elizabeth Cherry [unknown], married Jacob Robertson on 6 July 1805 in Sumner Co TN. Therefore she was probably born by 1790. (77)


        Elizabeth "Betsey" Cherry [C1a8k6], daughter of Samuel M Cherry and Mary Moore, was born about 1778 in Pitt Co NC. She was named in her father's 13 May 1813 will as "daughter Elizabeth Taylor." Her father's will gave to her heirs, and not to Elizabeth. Daughters of Samuel Cherry, Sarah, Elizabeth, and Nancy, in a February 1816 Edgecombe Co will petition contesting their father’s will, Elizabeth was named as "wife of John Taylor of Martin County."

        Elizabeth "Betsy" Cherry [C1a8h2], daughter of William Cherry Sr and Susannah _____, was born about 1780 in Bertie Co NC. She married Richard Baker and lived in Bertie Co. According to the 1820 census, he was born before 1776, as was Betsy. If so, her parents must have been born a few years sooner than previously thought. Betsy and Richard had seven children by 1820-

        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a7f4a], daughter of Solomon Cherry Jr and Mary Eason, was born in about 1785 in Bertie Co NC. She married William Spivey before the summer of 1810, probably in 1808, since she was not a child in her parents' household then. William was born about 1782. Elizabeth was named as the eldest sister of all of Solomon's daughters by Ralph Outlaw in August 1830. The second wife of Ralph Outlaw was Elizabeth's sister Celia Cherry. (77,79,105,121,6hi)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a8h1f], daughter of Levi Cherry and Sarah _____, was born about 1787 in Edgecombe Co NC (she was age 75 in the 1860 Edgecombe Co census). Elizabeth married Jonas Gray Cobb in 1811. He was born in 1781, son of John Cobb and Winifred _____ (see the ALLIED FAMILIES Section on page 1270 for more Cobb information). In 1810 Jonas lived in Edgecombe Co and had four girls and a boy by then with his first wife. In 1820, now married top Elizabeth, the young boy was not in their home, the three girls born in the 1800s were gone, and the oldest girl was missing; there were, though, four more young daughters, Elizabeth's children, born in the 1810 decade. In 1850, 3 year old granddaughter Mary Walston was living with Jonas and Elizabeth. She was still with her grandmother in 1860. In 1830 in Edgecombe Co the Jonas Cobb family had six children, and eventually about ninbe with Elizabeth-

1.     Matilda Cobb, b 1812 in Pitt Co, died in 1892 in Pitt Co. She married Benjamin Dilda in Edgecombe Co on 25 May 1847. (5ji)

2.     Arceny Cobb, b 1814 in Pitt Co. She married Jobe Deal in Pitt Co in 1835. (5ij)

3.     dau Cobb, b 1816-1820 (5ij)

4.     Eliza Cobb, b 1820 in Edgecombe Co NC, married Littleton Walston in Edgecombe Co on 17 June 1845. The bondsman was Josiah Walston. This was Littleton's third marriage. They were not together in 1850 (perhaps he died?) because Eliza and her daughter were living with her parents; Eliza was using the Cobb family name, but the daughter was not. Eliza and Littleton had a daughter-

        a.     Mary Walston, b 1847

Littleton first married Delpha Cherry in Edgecombe Co on 28 Jan 1841; bond was by John Walston. He married second to Zilpha Smith on 14 November 1843, with the same bondsman. There was a Littleton Walston living in Edgecombe Co in 1860, age 70. He appears to be a generation older than the husband of Eliza. In 1860 the elder Walston's wife was Polly, age 75, and Eliza's daughter Mary was not living with this elder Walston. Therefore, he may be Eliza's father-in-law, or uncle-in-law. The older Littleton Walston and his wife Polly were in Edgecombe Co in 1850 (he age 61, she age 65). One of the people in their 1850 household was Sally Cobb, age 15; Sally and the elder Walston couple were born in NC. (82,5jnq)

5.     Gatsey Ann Cobb, b 1821 in Edgecombe Co, died in Greene Co in 1904 and was buried in Brand Cemetery, Greene Co. She married Levi Washington Edwardsin Pitt Co on 11 March 1844. (5j)

6.     Elizabeth Ann Cobb, b 1825. She married David Langley on 7 January 1855 in NC. (5j)

7.     Levi E Cobb, b 1829 (5jn)

8.     Sally Cobb, b 1830 in Edgecombe Co. She married Mansel Wooten in Edgecombe Co on 8 January 1850. (5j)

9.     Jonas G Cobb, b 1834 in NC, married Elizabeth Owens on 8 May 1855; brother Levi E Cobb provided the bond. She was born in 1835, and was illiterate in the 1860 census. Jonas and his family were living next door to his mother in 1860 in Edgecombe Co, and was a farmer. His children, by 1860, were-

        1.     Mary E Cobb, b 1856 in Edgecombe Co NC.

        b.     James E Cobb, b 1858 in Edgecombe Co NC.

Living with Jonas and Elizabeth in 1860 were Robert Owens, age 17, and Eliza Corbitt, age 9. There was an 18 December 1849 marriage between a Jonas G Cobb and Martha Ann Shelton; David M Cobb provided the marriage bond. In 1860 that Jonas, called Gray Cobb, and his wife Martha A, were living a few doors from the John Walston-Margaret Cherry family in Edgecombe Co. Gray was born in 1825 and Martha in 1834, both in NC. They had three children by then: William, born in 1850; Mary L, born in 1853; and Keturah, born in 1855. (C,5nq)

Eight doors away in 1850 was Sarah Cherry, age 32 and apparently a widow, and her 4 year old daughter Sally R Cherry. In 1860 three teens were living with Elizabeth: Mary Walston, age 18; Martha Edwards, age 18; and Frank Corbitt, age 17. Perhaps Martha and Frank were grandchildren. The children of John Cobb and Winifred were Amos W Cobb, Stephen Cobb, Louisa Cobb who married Ezekiel Crisp in 1835, Lydia Luella Cobb, Lucinda Cobb who married Levi Crisp in 1841, Fanny Eliza Cobb (married Archibald McMillan in 1834?), Ephraim Edward Cobb who married Emily Harrell in 1849, David Monroe Cobb, and Jonas Gray Cobb. (95,C, 5phijnq)


        Mrs Elizabeth Cherry [], born in 1793 in NC, had first married a Mr Arnold and lived in Pitt Co. Her Mr Arnold died before 1830 and she then married a Mr Cherry, who died by 1840. Elizabeth was Eliza Cherry in the 1840 Pitt Co census, then was Elizabeth Cherry living at Greenville in 1850. The only Cherry people living nearby in 1850 was James Cherry, born in 1838 and living with Benjamin Evans (1785 NC) and his wife Sarah _____ (1785 NC). Mrs Elizabeth Cherry had five children-

a.     Aaron W Arnold, b 1824 (7kn)

b.     Jacky Ann Arnold, b 1823 (7kn)

c.     Martha J Cherry, b 1830 (7kn)

d.     William L Cherry, b 1832. He married Mary A Nelson about 1858. She was born in NC in 1838. William was a hotel proprietor in Greenville in 1860,then was the town constable in 1870. In the hotel in the summer of 1860 was tenant Elizabeth Cherry, age 65, born in NC. In January 1862 William L Cherry and D H Smith enlisted in the CSA and gathered enlistees to form a Company of soldiers. William was became a Quartermaster for the 44th Regiment, Company C, and was promoted to Captain at the end of 1862. M G Cherry was also part of that Company. William and Mary had two daughters by 1870. They both were not found in the 1880 census, but their children were living as nephews and niece with Tillman R Cherry in 1880 in Pitt Co-

        1.     Lela F Cherry, b 1859, died in Edgecombe Co on 18 January 1921. (W,7qrs)

        2.     Annie E Cherry, b 1860, probably married int he late 1870s. (7r)

        3.     T B Cherry (son), b 1861 (7s)

        4.     W L Cherry (son), b 1864 (7r) (7nqr)

There is much evidence that William L Cherry (1832 NC) was a brother, nephew, or first cousin of Tillman R Cherry. But in 1850 he lived with his mother Elizabeth and his full and half-siblings, not in Tillman's parents' home, even though William's mother was a widow in 1850. Hence William L must have been a nephew of Tillman's parents, and a first cousin to Tillman. Tillman's mother was Mary Ann Albritton, born about 1808, not Elizabeth, born in 1793. In 1830 in Pitt Co,in the same district where Tillman's father John Cherry l;ived, there was a Benjamin F Cherry who had a wife of Mrs Elizabeth Cherry's age, and had a girl and boy unbder the ages of 5 in their home, which matches the ages of Elizabeth' two eldest children in her home in 1850.

e.     Emily E Cherry, b 1836 (7kn) (7knqr). 


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a8j10], daughter of Lemuel Cherry and Nancy Ann Moring, was born between 1795 and 1800 in Pitt Co NC. She married Stephen Ewell, probably after 1810. Elizabeth is assumed to be one of the five daughters living with her father in 1810. (57,7ae)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a5e2i], daughter of Joshua Cherry and Martha R Keene, was born in 1797 in either Bertie Co NC or in Davidson Co TN. She married Elihu Willingham, probably in TN. (77,78,LJ)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a5e4f], daughter of Jeremiah Cherry and Mary Price, was born 15 December 1799 in Martin Co NC. She was only about nine years old when her parents moved to Columbia, TN, where she spent the rest of her life. Elizabeth married Pleasant Nelson, a businessman, on 21 September 1815. He was born 29 June 1792 in VA, son of John Nelson and Mary _____, and moved to Columbia about 1812. Upon the death of Elizabeth's father, her brothers and sisters inherited the tavern which her father had build in Columbia about 1811. Elizabeth and Pleasant bought out her brothers and sisters, and the tavern was then run for years by her and Pleasant. They eventually re-built the tavern into a large inn, which was still standing one block north of the town square in 1986.

        From the number of nephews who were named after Pleasant, he must have been well respected by the extended family. He was the city recorder in 1830-1831, and an alderman in 1831, 1833, and 1839. In 1860 he was the clerk of the circuit court. Pleasant died 27 July 1862 in Columbia and was buried in Greenwood Cemetery on the north edge of town. Elizabeth wrote a will on 28 November 1867, which was witnessed by N R Wilkes, Thomas M West, Mary B Cherry, and Nancy Keef. She died on Wednesday, 16 March 1870 and her will was proven on the 7th of April. She is also buried in Greenwood Cemetery. They had two daughters-

1.     Adeline A E Nelson, b 5 Jan 1818

2.     Nancy Elvira M Nelson, b 17 Jul 1819 (54, 55,61,91,RM,N,1z,10zcijknqp)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a7d4f], daughter of Lemuel Cherry and Sarah McPherson, was born in 1800 in Jackson Co TN. She married Hiram Denton, probably by 1820 since she was not a child in her parents' household in Jackson Co in 1820. Hiram was born in TN in 1800, son of Isaac Denton (1768-1858) and Rebecca Etheridge (1778-1855), and died in Jackson Co in 1840. They had a son (and probably other children)-

1.     Cary C Denton, b 26 Apr 1832 in Jackson Co TN. He married Nancy A Smith in 1861. She was born in Jackson Co on 20 December 1841, and died 25 March 1913. They had four children in Clay Co TN-

        a.     Samuel O Denton, b 4 Oct 1862, died 15 December 1942. He m,arried Sarah A Price about 1883. She was born 3 Ohio Co 1864 in Jackson Co, daughter of James Price (1826-1909) and Ruth Plumlee (1829 TN), and died 30 March 1948 at Moss, Clay Co. They had eight children-

        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a8c1f4], daughter of Isham Cherry and Silva Harrell, was born 27 May 1806 in Martin Co NC. She spent most, if not all her life in Martin Co and died on 3 August 1819. (51,52)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C2d1g], daughter of Benjamin Cherry III and Rebecca Crawford, was born 1810 in Overton Co TN, and died in 1845 in Coles Co IL. (W)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a7f4e5], daughter of James Rufus Cherry and Esther Duers, was born in the 1810s in Bertie Co NC. (77)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a6b2a2c2], daughter of Daniel B Cherry and Margaret Rebecca Stancill, was born in 1822 in Stewart Co TN. She married Robert Hinson in Stewart Co on 16 October 1848. He was born in 1812 in TN. They lived in Stewart Co in 1850 and 1860, but were not found there in 1870. They had four children by 1860-

a.     Mary Elvira Hinson, b Jan 1850

b.     James Hinson, b 1852

c.     Martha Hinson, b 1856

d.     Rebecca Hinson, b Nov 1859

Robert Hinson had four children from a prior marriage: William Hinson, born 1839; Richard Hinson, born 1843; Clarissa Elizabeth Hinson, born 1845; and Sarah Hinson, born 1847. The only Hinson famliy in Stewart Co in 1840 was John Hinson, but he had no sons older than five years old in 1840. (HD,37kmnq)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a6e2h7], daughter of Jared William Cherry and Susan Jenkins, was probably born in the 1830s in Marengo Co AL. Orphan's Record (Book 29, page 122) of Sumter Co, on 8 August 1871 for the then-living heirs of Jarrard W Cherry named Elizabeth Cherry who lived in Sumter Co at that time. (78,77,LJ,22np)


        Elizabeth Cherry [C1a6h2c1], daughter of Robert Cherry and Mary Ann Davis, was born in 1832 in Davidson Co TN. She was a daughter age 5 to 9 in her parents' home in Davidson Co in 1840, but was not found at home in 1850. She was in Gibson Co in 1850 with her husband. Elizabeth married Madison Brock in Davidson Co on 5 April 1848. From 1850 And later census records, we can see that she was born about 1832 in TN. Hence, she would be a daughter in the 1840 census age 5 to 9. In Davidson Co in 1840, Robert Cherry had a daughter of that age (and three young sons). The only other two Cherry families in Davidson Co in 1840 were Lewis Cherry, who had no children. And there was elderly Eli Cherry, with no daughters or granddaughters. Hence, Elizabeth must have been Robert's daughter.

        Elizabeth and Madison were in Gibson Co in 1850 (five counties west of Davidson Co, and were found on census page 241B); her parents Robert and Mary also were in Gibson Co in 1850 (as was Robert's brother Louis Cherry, both men on census page 241A). Madison and Elizabeth had no living children by the springtime of 1850. Madison was born in SC in 1818. They were in Lower Twp, Franklin Co AR in 1870. Madison died there in the 1870s. In 1880 Elizabeth and her younger children lived in Spadra Twp, Johnson Co AR, the county just east of Franklin Co. They had six known children. After moving to AR about 1852, they must have returned to TN because their third child, Joseph, was born in TN. All children after Joseph were born in AR. This return to western TN would have been relatively easy; in AR they lived close to the Arkansas River, which is large enough for travel on flat-bottom boats to take passengers and equipment to the larger Mississippi River, and from there up river on the Mississippi to western TN.

        Elizabeth Jane Cherry [C1a8p7a], daughter of George Cherry and Penelope _____, was born 6 Apr 1813 in Duplin Co NC. "Betsey Jane Cherry" married John D Arrington in Greene Co AL on 19 January 1829. The only Arrington in Greene Co in 1830 was Arthur Arrington (census page 384); he was a witness to Penelope Cherry’s August 1836 will, so would likely be a brother of John D Arrington who married Betsey Jane Cherry. Arthur was age 20s in 1830 with a wife age about 19. John D was born about 1810 in NC. Elizabeth Jane and new husband John D Arrington must have been living with her parents in 1830; she was age 15 when married, so it was not likely that they had their own home by the summer of 1830. Elizabeth and John probably had a daughter born in early 1830; there were two baby girls in Penelope Cherry’s home in the 1830 census. One was Elizbeth’s youngest sister, and the other could have been Elizabeth’s daughter. There was an older young man in Elizabeth’s mother’s home in 1830, born about 1805 (age 20-29 in 1830). He was probably Elizabeth’s John D Arrington. Elizabeth was not named in her mother’s 1836 will; she had probably already received her in heritance from her parents when she married. They had five children before John died on 29 August 1840 at Forkland, Greene Co. Then Elizabeth married Turner Anderson Davis on 28 August 1842 in Greene Co. He was born 11 March 1799 at Abbeville, SC, son of Thomas Davis (1773-1820) and Tabitha Anderson (1774-1842), and died 31 March 1843 at Greensboro, Greene Co (now is Hale Co). Elizabeth’s third husband was Raines P Travis, married in Greene Co on 29 December 1855. He was born in VA in 1811. Just after Elizabeth married Raines, most of her children lived in a hotel at Forkland, which was managed by their mother, but with Raines not with her. Elizabeth died 18 July 1884 at Forkland and was buried Forkland Methodist Church Cemetery. Her six children, all born in at Forkland, Greene Co AL, were-

1.     Martha Arrington, b 1830. She married Philip May in Greene Co on 9 March 1864. He was born in NC in 1811, and this was his second marriage. In their home at Livingston, Sumter Co in 1870 were teenagers from a prior marriage. Martha had two daughters by then-

He was born in TN in 1814. In the 1850 census Elizabeth gave her age as 24, and was age 35 in 1860. They moved to Titus Co TX after the summer of 1860. Since their son Isham was buried in Hardin Co in 1873, they may have gone to TX after then. Elijah died by 20 October 1892, but Elizabeth was still living then. She had eight known children-

1.     William L Harbour, b 24 May 1840, married Cynthia _____ about 1860. In 1860 they were newly married, living near his parents in Hardin Co. Cynthia was born about 1840. (9nq)

Lewis was born in TN in 1843, so fit the age of Samuel. Cyntha was born in AL in 1843. Samuel's brother James H Harbour was living with Lewis and Cyntha in 1870. Lewis was probably Samuel; in 1850 "Samuel L" Harbour was the 7 year old son of Elijah and Elizabeth. Samuel and Cyntha had four children by 1870, but in 1880 in Tiutus Co, Samuel had a different wife: Nance E _____, born in TN in 1846.

During the 1964-1979 years, the new Kaysinger Bluff Dam was built between Clinton and Warsaw on the Osage River, and created the large Harry S Truman Resevoir. This new lake would have flooded Downing and Hogles Creek Cemeteries, so most of the graves from that cemetery were moved elsewhere. The Neece-Cherry graves were moved to Shawnee Cemetery at Warsaw.

        Elizabeth West Cherry [unknown], b 8 August 1823 in NC, married Calvin Austin Hall in Benton Co TN. He was born 19 March 1818 in KY (1850 census; Source DS says SC). In 1850 they lived in Benton Co, but moved to Burnet Co TX in the Fall of 1860. Where they lived in the summer of 1860 is not known; perhaps they were en route to Burnet Co then. They had nine children-

1.     Mary Elizabeth Hall, b 1841

2.     Henry William Hall, b 1843, married Margaret J Evans. They had at least one child-

        a.     Sarah Agnes Hall, b 6 May 1874. (124,JC,DS)

A Mr Calvin Hall, born 20 Sep 1883 died in TX in June 1963 (who was he?). And another Calvin Hall, born 10 Oct 1924, died in Jun 1979 in TX. (Z). A William Alexander Hall, son of T P Hall & Zilphe _____, was born 15 Dec 1873 in Burnet Co TX. (124) (DS) In Benton Co TN in 1850 were John S Cherry, born in NC in 1817, and a Mrs Catherine Cherry, born in VA in 1752. Mrs Cherry was living with the Henry Clay family; Henry's wife Nancy was born in NC in 1795. She was probably Nancy Cherry, or a Mrs Nancy Cherry from a prior marriage. Henry Clay and his wife Nancy were next door to Calvin and Elizabeth. There was a third Cherry family in Benton Co in 1850: widow Minerva (Brewer) Cherry, born in TN in 1819, so her late husband would have been of the same generation as John S and Elizabeth W Cherry. John S Cherry and his family were still there in 1860; the youngest child then was Benjamin Cherry. A first speculation would place Henry Clay's wife Nancy as a former Mrs Cherry, mother of John S Cherry, Mrs Elizabeth Cherry Hall, and Mrs Minerva Cherry's late husband. (58nq)

One of the Sumter Co Willingham families was Thomas Willingham, born in the 1790s, but there was no adult male of Elihu’s age in Thomas’ home.

         In 1850 to 1870 they lived in Fayette Co AL. He died there on 19 January 1877 and was buried in Hopewell Baptist Church Cemetery in Fayette Co.

They had three children-

b.     Robert B Cherry, b 1906, lived at Nashville in 1955. (N,37vw)

        Emmett Wilton Cherry [C1a6b2a2c8e], son of Yeatman Whitman Cherry and Elizabeth Clark, was born 22 April 1859 (Jul 1859 per 1900 census) at Dover, Stewart Co TN. When his parents moved to McDonald Co MO in the 1870s, Emmett stayed in Stewart Co. His sister Adeline lived with him in 1880. He married Rebecca Eugenia Cherry [C1a6b2a2c12c], his cousin, on 2 June 1889 at Big Rock in Stewart Co; this was his second marriage. There is confusion about who Rebecca married; the marriage record shows that her husband was "G W Cherry," but a closer look at this record shows that the marriage recorder made the capital letter E and G very similar. In 1900 Emmit and Rebecca lived in northwest Stewart Co next door to his parents. Rebecca was born 4 March 1870 (Aug 1865 per 1900 census, age 40 in 1910, 60 in 1930) at Dover, daughter of George Washington Cherry [C1a6b2a2c12] and Mary Parthenia Self, and died on 26 August 1951 at Broken Arrow, OK. She was buried at Bixby, OK. Emmett died on 20 June 1913 at Huntsville, AR, and was buried at Huntsville. In 1920 and 1930 Rebecca lived at Peggs, Cherokee Co OK with her son Hubert. She claimed she had six children by 1900, all still alive. Since they had been married only about 10 years by 1900, the four sons in their home in 1900 seems to be the total number of children Rebecca actually had; if Emmett’s first marriage produced children then that wife may have had children, and perhaps it was Emmett who answered the 1900 census taker's question of "how many children do you have?" In 1910 Rebecca claimed she had twelve children by then, with nine still living. Emmet's known children were-

1.     Hubert Delesley Cherry, b 10 Dec 1890 at Dover, TN, was age 29, in the 1920 Cherokee Co OK census, and born in TN. He married Cora Forbes about 1908 in Chrokee Co.

She died on 29 March 1920 in Cherokee Co and was buried in Blue Springs Cemetery in Cherokee Co. Her gravestone says CORA / WIFE OF / H D CHERRY plus her date. In 1910 they lived six doors from his parents. Hubert died 4 January 1949 at Heavener, LeFlore Co, and was buried in Bixby Cemetery, Tulsa Co.

        Erastus Cherry [C1a3f6d6], son of Theophilus Cherry and Julia Grimes, was born 18 August 1833 in Edgecombe Co NC. He married Mary Della Savage on 22 February 1859 in Halifax Co.

        Erastus Cherry [C1a2f2], possibly a son of Aaron Cherry and Mary Pierce, probably lived in Bertie Co NC, as did most of his brothers. There were no records found of him as an adult in Norfolk Co VA, where he was probably born. When he was born is not known, but was likely in the 1740s, considering the known birth dates of his brothers. Where Erastus lived during his lifetime is not known; his brothers lived in Bertie Co. Erastus was not on the 1790 Federal census, nor was he in the 1787 state census or the county tax lists. He would have been an adult in 1787 when the state census of Bertie Co was taken, so perhaps he died soon before. Since there were tax rosters in Bertie Co in 1757, 1760, and in 1769, and Erastus was on none of them, he must have been under the age of 16 in 1760. If he was born in the 1740s after 1744, then he would have shown up in the 1769 roster. Therefore he must have either left the area, or died by 1769.

        Because the children of Erastus' father and brothers, other than brother George (if he had any children), are known, and because there was an Aaron Cherry born in Bertie Co in 1760 with an unknown father, and because Erastus' brother Robert Cherry had a son Theophilus who had a son named Erastus, it is here assumed with only circumstantial evidence that the Aaron born in the 1760s was a son of Erastus-

a.     Aaron Cherry, b 1760 (57,JY)


        Ernest Enoch Cherry [C1a6e2h1f1b1], son of Claude Rogers Cherry and an unknown mother, was born 18 August 1924 in Navarro Co TX. He died at Pasadena, Harris Co in July 1978. Ernest married Doris Marie Bird. She was born 21 November 1930 in Comal Co, daughter of Clyde O

bird (1905 TX) and Bessie Mae Leasman (1909 TX), and died in Harris Co on 4 December 1991. They had a daughter-

a.     Cheryl Darlene Cherry, b 14 Dec 1947 in Harris Co TX. She married Dee Clinton Williams in Harris Co on 16 July 1966. Dee was age 18 when they married. (192bm) (Z,TXd, 192b,408b,382f)

He killed himself at Kerens on 22 October 1919 witrh a gunshot. Clause R Cherry of Kerens was the informant for his death certificate. Ernest was buried in Kerens Cemetery.

Joseph left his will, dated 5 August 1823, in which he gave 218 acres known as the Scott Tract, to Joseph's daughter Sally, "land I bought of Ezekiel Cherry Esq." Since Joseph Brittain had adult children when his will was written (it was probated in Bedford Co on 15 February 1832), he must have been over age 40.

        Faithfull Cherry [C1a5], son of John Cherry Jr and Rebecca Maund, was probably born about 1678 in Lower Norfolk Co VA. He married Patience _____ (Culpepper?). His will was written on 28 July 1727, and entered into probate in Norfolk Co on 16 February 1728; therefore Faithfull must have died between mid-January (the previous court session) and mid-February 1728. In 1722 Faithfull was a witness to a land sale concerning his brother Thomas Cherry (see below). He signed his name as above written with two letter L's at the end, but in his will the name Faithfull was written with one letter L. Faithfull probably lived along the South Branch of Elizabeth River, and may have been a cooper since this profession was taken up by his son Faithful, and Faithfull Senior left his cooper tools to his son Luke. Faithfull was an overseer for Thomas Willoughby in 1710. The will of Faithfull Sr, witnessed by Thomas Culpepper in Lower Norfolk Co, stated that his wife was still living (but didn't name her), and named his son Luke (under age 21), daughter Ruth, son Faithfull Jr (under age 18), son Titus, daughter Patience, and son Job. Because he did not mention an approximate age for Job or Luke does not indicate that they were adults. Rather, they were young boys, and not nearly of an adult age. Faithful's six children were-

a.     Luke Cherry, b bef 1710

b.     Faithful Cherry Jr, b abt 1710

c.     Ruth Cherry, b abt 1713

d.     Patience Cherry, b abt 1715

e.     Job Cherry, b abt 1720

f.     Titus Cherry, b abt 1723 (69,90,WD,JY,28p)


        Faithful Cherry Jr [C1a5b], son of Faithfull Cherry and Patience _____ of Norfolk Co VA, was under age 18 in July 1727, thus placing his birth date after July 1709, and probably about 1710. From the date of his son Jesse's birth, Faithful must have been born about 1710, and in Norfolk Co. His father named Thomas Culpepper to help raise young Faithful. The boy inherited one heifer and two sheep "to be delivered to him when he becomes of age eighteen years." When he moved to NC in unknown, but it wasn't until after he became an adult in Norfolk Co VA. By 5 November 1751 he was living in Tyrrell Co (in the part which is now Martin Co) NC as he was a juror in the coroner's inquest concerning the drowning of a Negro man in the Roanoke River. In 1755 he was listed on the Tyrrell Co tax list (as was younger brother Job Cherry and (son?) John Cherry). On 8 October 1774 Faithful Cherry sold 60 acres to "Benjamin Wheatley," both of Martin Co, land next to "Cherry's line thence along Cherry's line to Thomas Wheatley's line the land whereon William Anderson lives." Witnesses were Jesse Cooper and Benjamin Kennedy. Faith made his C mark. Also, Faith sold 100 acres in Martin Co NC on 27 August 1777 to Isaac Cherry; witnesses were Jonathan Cherry and Jesse Cherry. He signed his name "Faithful Cherry." On 26 May 1778 "Faithful Cherry, a cooper of Martin Co NC," sold to Jesse Cherry 100 acres "beginning at the head of branch that runs out of the wild cat swamp at the main road called the Wild Cat" and also bounded by Matthew Harrell's land; daughter Apsile Cherry witnessed with her C mark, and Joel Cherry witnessed. Faithful Cherry signed. On 15 September 1778 Faithful Cherry and "Susanah his wife" sold 47 acres to Jesse Collins, land "beginning at an ash on the run of Cherry's Branch" and bounded by Margaret Collin's line and Yarrell's line. Faithful was on the county tax list in 1779. On 14 March 1782 Faithful Cherry bought 200 acres "beginning at the main road called the Wild Cat road" in Martin Co from Charles Whitley.

        Faithful married Susanah _____, possibly his second wife, by 1778, and was living in Williamston, Martin Co in 1787. He also left a 9 February 1787 will in Martin Co which was proven in December 1788; sons Jonathan and Joel were named to be the executors. Witnesses were Jesse Cherry and Miles Hatfield. Faith made his C mark as his signature. He named ten children in his will, but his son Isaac Cherry's 17 October 1788 Martin Co will (Book 1, page 151) named Jesse, Joel, and Jonathan as brothers. Jesse must have received his inheritance early, and therefore was not named in his father's will as an heir (but was named as a witness). Or possibly Jesse was from a first wife of Faithful since Jesse's birth date was years before the third child's birth date; son Jonathan may have also been from a possible first wife of Faithful. Faithful's children were-

1.     Jesse Cherry, b 1731

2.     Jonathan Cherry, b 1734

3.     James Cherry, b 1740s

4.     Joel Cherry, b 1750s

5.     Apsile Cherry, b abt 1750s/1760s

6.     Isaac Cherry, b bef 1760

7.     Mary Cherry, b 1760s

8.     Harrell Cherry, b 1756-1766

9.     Rhoda Cherry, b abt 1760s

10.   Noah Cherry, b abt 1760s

11.   Ruth Cherry, b p1770

        George Cherry [C1a2f7], son of Aaron Cherry and Mary Pierce, probably moved to NC with his younger brothers and sisters, or died young. There was a G Cherry who was a witness at the 13 November 1801 marriage of William Cherry and Peggy Baker in Bertie Co NC. (69,6m)


        George Cherry [C1a8n], son of Lemuel Cherry and Gatsey Ann Llewellyn, was born about 1746 in Beaufort Co NC. He (or another George Cherry?) was shown on the 1764 Pitt Co tax roster, but not in the 1790census. (57,WD,4p, 7t)


        George Cherry [C1a8p7], son of Willis W Cherry and Sarah _____ of Duplin Co NC, was born between 1785 and 1790 in Duplin Co. He was not in the 1784 state census, but was in the 1790 Federal census. In 1810 he must have been the young man living with his widowed mother in Duplin Co, but in 1820 and 1830 he was not found in Duplin Co. Some researchers claim that George died 1 December 1831 in Greene Co AL, but he was not the head of his home in 1830; his wife Penelope was. Hence, the 1 December 1831 date must have been a probate date, when his estate was settled. Two deeds involving George in Duplin Co and in Johnston Co NC prove that he was the George Cherry of Greene Co AL. George married Penelope _____. She was born about 1793 in NC, and died between September 1836 to 1849 in Greene Co AL. In 1830 Penelope was the head of her home in Greene Co. She wrote a long will on 1 September 1836 and named her children:

"In the first place ... bequeath unto my beloved son George K Cherry, my boy named Isaac;"

"In the second place ... bequeath unto my beloved daughter Bythenia P Cherry, my boy named Adam;"

"In the third place ... bequeath to Henry Briggs my girl named Olive about eighteen months old to hold in trust for my daughter Thurzia M Briggs, wife of Samuel G Briggs;"

"In the fourth place I do give and bequeath to those of my children who are now unmarried, to wit: George K, Bythenia P, Willis H, Rebecca E and Sarah, all the remainder ... ."

"In the fifth place ..." pay all debts owed with the sale of the crops growing at the time of her death, and the remainder of the crop sale shall go to son-in-law Samuel G Briggs who was the person who labored to bring the crops to harvest. William L Dafphry of Greene County was appointed to be Penelope’s executor; he lived seven doors from Penelope in 1830 (census page 376). Witnesses were Henry Watson, D D Briggs, and Arthur Arrington. Witness D D Briggs later married Rebecca Cherry, daughter of George and Penelope. Penelope’s will also requested that "it is my will that if the same can be done, the said children shall remain together upon the plantation..." Her children were-

a.     Elizabeth Jane Cherry, b 6 Apr 1813 (age 16-25 in 1830)

b.     son Cherry, b 1816-1820, was not named in his mother’s will, so probably died in the early 1830s, without issue. (328j)

c.     Thurza M Cherry, b 16 Mar 1818 (age 10-14 in 1830)

d.     Willis Hiram Cherry, b 1820 (age 10-14 in 1830)

e.     Rebecca Eliza Cherry, b 23 Mar 1822 (age 5-9 in 1830)

f.     Bythenia P Cherry, b abt 1824 (age 5-9 in 1830)

g-    Sarah N Cherry, b abt 1829 (age 0-4 in 1830)

h-    George K Cherry, b 1830

There were three Cherry women who married in Greene Co in the 1827-1830 years who were not named in Mrs Penelope Cherry’s will; they could have been George Cherry’s daughters (sisters?) from a marriage before he married Penelope, or more likely they were daughters of Samuel T Cherry (born 1770s) [unknown]. They were Polly M Cherry who married Simon Carpenter on 12 Dec 1827; Nancy R Cherry who married William B George on 21 Dec 1829; and Elizabeth A Cherry who married Robert J Gill on 15 Nov 1830.

        George O Cherry [C1a8f4b1], son of Charles M Cherry and an unknown mother, was born born in 1826 in Montgomery Co TN (age 5-9 in 1830, 10-14 in 1840, 24 in 1850, 43 in 1870, 54 in 1880), and grew up in Montgomery Co. The 1850 Montgomery Co census had only one male, George Cherry, who was of the age of this son from the 1830 and 1840 census.

        In the 1840 census in Montgomery Co, there were just two Cherry families: Lemuel Cherry (Leml in the census), and Mrs Rosanna Cherry, widow of Charles Cherry Jr. In Rosanna's home there was a male age about 13 or 14, George's age; Lemuel did not have a male of this age. But George could not have been a son of Rosannah since her husband Charles Cherry Jr had died soon before January 1819 (his probate date). Charles Jr and Rosannah, though, had two older sons who would have been of age to be George's father. In Rosannah's home in 1840 there was an apparent son who was age 40s (born 1790s) and a wife of age 30s (born 1801-1810), along with seven younger children (six girls and one boy), who were of age to be Rosanna's grandchildren. Rosannah was born in 1774. Rosannah and Charles Cherry Jr had two sons of age to be the older male in Rosannah's home in 1840; of these two, the only one he could be was Charles M Cherry [C1a8f4b], their second son.

        George married Susan Mildred Herring on 11 February 1848 in Montgomery Co. She was born in TN in 1825 (age 25 in 1850, 55 in 1880). Living with George and Susan in 1850 was Lucy Cherry, age 7. She was likely George's step-daughter,and she used the Cherry family name. George's and Susan's son Lee was overlooked by the 1850 census taker. George and Susan and their children were in Montgomery Co until the late 1850s when they moved to Red River Co TX. They remained there until about 1863, then moved back to Montgomery Co before 1870. In 1880 they were in TX again, this time in Freestone Co. In Freestone Co, there is an old cemetery called Saint Elmo, There are three Cherry graves there, but without readable dates: Charles Cherry, F R Cherry (Charles's wife?), and Susan Cherry. Note that Susan had a son named Charles. George and Susan had five or six children, born in Montgomery Co TN and in Red River Co TX-

a.     Lee Cherry, b Jan 1849

b.     Sissy Cherry, b 1852. She was Sissy, age 8 in 1860, Lula B age 19 in 1870. (322q,40r)

f.     Edwin W Cherry, b 1864 in TN (age 6 in 1870, 14 in 1880). (40r,575s). (77,80, 40jkmnr, 322q,575s)


        George O Cherry [C2d1f7a], son of Wesley Jordan Cherry and Mary Elizabeth Hodge, was born 18 April 1857 in Macon Co MO, and died 18 November 1930 in Macon Co. George married Ann Gertrude Higgenbotham in Macon Co on 4 February 1887. She was born in Macon Co on 21 August 1866, only child of Andrew Higgenbotham and Nancy Margaret Thurman, and died 17 August 1938 in Macon Co. "Ruby Heaton" of Ethel, MO was the informant for both of their death certificates. They were both buried in Bell Cemetery at Ethel, Macon Co. They lived near Ethel and had two children-

1.     Earl Simpson Cherry, b 1887 in Macon Co, died 1921 in Prairie Co MT and was returned to Macon Co and buried in Bell Cemetery. He married Mildred Francis Anderson. She was born in 1895 and died in 1986. They had a son-

        a.     Robert Earl Cherry, b 1921 in Miles City, Montana, died in 1980 at Oklahoma City, OK. (W)

        b.     J R Heaton (son), b 1924 at Ethel, Macon Co MO. (140f)

Both of James R Heaton’s parents were buried in Bell Cemetery. (W,Z,140wfd) (140qrsdc)


        George Randle Cherry [C1a8f5d1], possibly a son Eli J Cherry and Louisa Jane Atkins, was born 27 April 1846 in Stewart Co TN. George married Mary J Atkins in Stewart Co on 8 January 1873. In 1860 he and his brother Richard Cherry lived in Stewart Co with Sarah Atkins (1803 NC) who was a widow of George Atkins (1797 NC). Sarah Atkins had Atkins children ranging in age from 18 to 27, all born in TN. Since George and his brother Richard Cherry were ages 14 and 13 in 1860, then Sarah was likely not their mother since her Atkins children were born before George and his brother Richard, and Sarah still used the Atkins name in 1860. Hence, she may have been an aunt. In the same home in 1860 was Mrs Diadema Ralls (1810 SC) and her husband James S Ralls (1816 NC); this older couple were the head of the household. Their neighbors in 1860 were Green, Keel, Atkins, Free, Sheffields, and Brumley families. Neighbors in 1850 were Kistner, Williams, Satterfield, Cooley, Reynolds, Griffin, and Roper families. In 1850 James S Ralls and wife Diadema lived three doors from Daniel B Cherry [C1a6b2a2c4].

        In 1850, living four doors from Mary J Atkins’s family was William Cherry (age 40) and wife Disy (age 40) (family #488). They had six Cherry children in their home then, all born in TN: Maria, 19; William, 17; Adaline, 13; George, 11; Irwin, 8; and Henderson Cherry, 5. There was also a 25 year old Milard Cherry in their home, shown last, after the listing of William’s children. (He was William’s younger brother?). And in 1850 in Stewart Co was George B Atkins (1797 NC) who was a stone mason (family #606). His wife in 1850 was "Saley" (Sarah Matheny), age 46 and born in NC. In this George Atkins home in 1850 was Rebecca Atkins (1814 NC), Louisa Cherry (1825 TN), and Atkins children ranging in ages 21 to 3. Because the two youngest were George and Richard, ages 4 and 3, and because the 1860 census showed George Cherry’s age as 14 and his brother Richard Cherry as 13, then these two young boys in 1850 were likely children of (widow?) Louisa (Atkins) Cherry who lived with her two boys in her father George Atkins’ home. The 1860 census showed some of Sarah and George Atkins’ children as Alfred Atkins, age 31 (he was living next door and was a stone mason), William, age 27, Mary, age 24, Martha, age 20, Edmund, age 18; The 1850 census showed these same children with matching ages: Alfred, 21; Willaim, 18; May, 14; Martha 10; Edward, 7. Hence, this was the same family, and Louisa Cherry must have been the mother of the two Cherry boys, and probably a daughter of George B Atkins. Because these two widowed Atkins women (Sarah, and Louisa’s children) families lived together in 1860 with Mrs Diadema Ralls, formerly the wife of William Henry Cherry, then they were likely closeley related. Living four doors from William Cherry and wife Disy in 1850 was Lewis Atkins and his wife Avey, and their baby daughter Mary Atkins. This baby Mary Atkins was to become the wife of George Cherry 23 years into the future.

        George R Cherry died on 21 November 1918 at Indian Mound, Stewart Co. He was buried in Heflin Cemetery at Dover. His gravestone has a 22 November death date, but his death certificate says 21 November; he was a widower when he died. In 1900 he was in Stewart Co, and was a widower by then. Living with him in 1900, in addition to two children, were cousins "Cornelius A Brawley" (1858 TN), "Wm W Brawley" (1861 TN), aunt "Martha A Atkins" (1839 TN and single; she was the 10 year old daughter of George and Sarah Atkins in 1850 census), and cousin "Liddie Lee Wall" (1872 TN). In 1910 George lived with his son Richard.

        Mary J Atkins was born 11 November 1849 in Stewart Co near Indian Mound (age 2/12 in 1850), daughter of Lewis G Atkins (1821 TN) and Avey Heflin (1822 TN).

There is a second gravestone for him, similarly made, but this one has dates and only his name, and the lettering was scratched into the semi-hard concrete with a sharp stick.

This Henry was likely Henry Jr. Henry Sr served in the Revolutionary War and received bounty grants in TN of 228 acres (grant #3386), in Wilson Co. In a Beaufort Co deed of 3 October 1840 (book 20, page 443), Henry Cherry Sr passed title to 150 acres to Henry Cherry Jr, 150 acres to Joshua Cherry, and 70 acres to Willis Cherry (see Wiley Cherry, son of Jesse Cherry of Martin Co). Henry sold his property and moved from Beaufort Co or died. Since Henry left no records naming all his children, we have to speculate with little evidence. From this land deed, and because of who son Henry Jr was living next door to in 1810, some of the children of Henry (Sr) were probably-

1.     Henry Cherry Jr, b 1778

2.     Joshua Cherry

3.     Willis Cherry, b 1804

In the 1802 land sale of 125 acres, buyer Joshua Griffin was the brother of the Griffin sellers, including Henry Cherry's wife Sally. (57,C,1z,4en)


        Henry Cherry Jr [C1a5b1b1], son of Henry Cherry and Sarah Griffin, was born in 1768 in Tyrrell Co or Beaufort Co NC (age 77 in 1850); census records prior to 1850 all have his birht date in the 1760s, or before 1775. He was living in Beaufort Co in 1810 to 1850; in 1850 he lived with his apparent son-in-law Daniel W Reddick and Daniel's six children. Henry's wife in 1820 was born between 1776 and 1794, and in 1810 she was born 1765 to 1784. Therefore her birth was probably between 1776 and 1784. She was not living in Henry's home in Beaufort Co in 1830, so had probably died in the 1820s. In 1810 Henry's father was not found in Beaufort Co or the surrounding counties, so was likely living with a child. Henry Jr's household in 1810 had an older man in the house; perhaps Henry Sr. Henry (Jr) was living next to Willis Cherry in Beaufort Co in 1840, but was no longer called a Jr. Henry Jr's children (the youngest could be grandchildren) were-

a.     Louisa Cherry, b abt 1800

        Henry Cherry [C1a5e2f], son of Joshua Cherry and Martha R Keene, was born in Bertie Co NC about 1793. He grew up in Davidson, Sumner, and Rutherford Counties TN, and married Annie Rogers on 24 December 1815 in Caldwell Co KY. She was born about 1795 in TN. They had three children-

1.     Dosha Cherry, b abt 1816

2.     Thomas Cherry, b abt 1818 in TN. (77)

3.     Josiah Cherry, c1820 in TN. (77)

In 1815, although TN and KY were pretty much a wilderness, the Columbia River ran east-to-west through the TN counties where Henry lived, and at the (then) western edge of TN in Stewart Co it bends northward and flows along the western edge of Caldwell Co KY to tie into the Ohio River. So the travel to Caldwll Co from TN would have likely been by river, not overland. (77,109,C, 47m)


        Henry Cherry [unknown], born in the 1800s, was living in Martin Co NC in 1830 close to Alfred S Cherry of about the same age, and John Darling Cherry.

        Henry Cherry [C1a8i2b], son of Willis Cherry and Charlotte Council, was born in 1802 in NC (age 16-25 in 1820), and was a teenager when his father moved to White Co IL. Henry married Jane Rudolph on 10 December 1829 in White Co. In 1830 Henry lived in White Co, recently married (no children). He and his wife were age 20s then. Living six doors away in 1830 was Peter Rudolph who had married Lucinda Cherry in 1824. In 1840 Henry was age 30s, his wife was age 20s; Jacob Rudolph lived two doors away in 1840 (census pg 277). In 1850 Henry was age 48 (1802 NC) and Jane was age 38 (born 1812 TN) (family #73 in Dictrict 13); next door were Henry’s parents-in-law Jacob Rudolph (1781 NC) and wife Rachel _____ (1781 NC) (family #74). He married Sarah Driggers in White Co on 17 December 1856; this was her second marriage also, but this marriage ended before 1860. In 1860 Henry was age 58, born in NC in 1802, and had no wife then. Sarah Driggers was found living in White Co in 1860 next door to James R Graham and his wife Susannah Davenport. Sarah had four children in her home; all had the Cherry name, yet only the two youngest were Henry Cherry’s children. The older two were actually Dickens children, children from Sarah’s prior marriage with Christopher Dickens. Henry died in January 1870 in White Co of stomach cancer. Sarah Driggers was born 11 February 1827 in IL, and died 23 February 1907. She was buried in Stokes Chapel Cemetery at Crossville, White Co. Henry’s children were-

Anna Jane married Robert M Rudolph in White Co on 2 Jan 1870, and Mariah married Joseph B Wilson on 24 Dec 1876 in White Co. After Henry Cherry died in 1870, "Mrs Sarah Cherry" married Lewis B Griffith in White Co on 8 Aug 1875, and she was again a widow by 1880. When Sarah was buried, her name was "Sarah Driggers Cherry"on her gravestone. (159ijkmnqrsc)

Henry married Mrs Amanda M F Spence about 1858, probably in Dyer Co. Mandy was born in VA about 1816. She was the head of her household in Dyer Co in 1870, so Henry had apparently died in the 1860s.

        Henry E Cherry [C1a6b2a2h], son of William W Cherry and Lydia Minerva McDaniel, was born in 1814 in Stewart Co TN. He was living in Stewart Co in 1840 next door to John Stancill (husband of Lydia Cherry), and appeared to be married. In 1900 his eldest son Reed said he was born in KY, so perhaps Henry and his first wife lived in Trigg Co during the 1830s. In 1850 and 1860 Henry was in Stewart Co with his wife Martha J Whitehead. They were married in Stewart Co on 25 October 1856 (date probably wrong; should be 1826?).

Thomas Copass, husband of Nancy Gulley, was a son of William Copass Jr and Anna McPeak. William Jr was born in 1785, son of William Copass Sr. William Sr was born in VA in 1747 and died about 1851. Nancy Gulley was a daughter of Thomas C Gulley and Sarah ____. Hettie Cherry's husband John Thomas Copass had a sister Sarah A Copass, who was born 18 September 1849 in Red Boiling Springs, TN. She married George W Murray and they had a son Shadrach William Murray who married Dora Bell Cherry.

Hamilton Cemetery, where the death certificates of Hettie and John state that they are buried, is about 0. 9 miles northwest of Clementsville,Clay Co. It's near the intersection of Clementsville KY Road and Barber Shop Road, in the north part of Clay Co. Perhaps this cemetery name was change to Clementsville Cemetery at a later date. (77,103,C, 64smdc)


        Hilda Cherry [C1a8c1j5c2b], daughter of Charles R Cherry and Alice Lenora Lewis, was born in 1903 in Carteret Co NC, and lived with her Cherry grandparents in 1920. She married Charles Thorne from Wilson Co NC. They had a son-

1.     Charles Thorne Jr (77) (77,413w)


        Hillery Cherry [C1a10b], probably a son of Solomon Cherry of Norfolk Co VA, was born about 1724 in Norfolk Co. He left a will there dated 29 March 1761 (Book 1, page 68) in which he named his wife Susannah _____ as executor, and named his brother John Cherry (received Hillery's 92 acre plantation next to John Richardson's property, plus cooper tools), and named two daughters who received the plantation where Hillery was then living. Witnesses to the will were Joseph Cherry, Paul Cherry, and John Richardson. Hillery signed his will with a "+" but both Cherry witnesses signed their names; John Richardson made his "Χ." The will was proven in the September 1761 court. Hillery's known children were-

1.     Elizabeth Cherry, b 1740s?

2.     Lydia Cherry, b 1740s?

There is a Norfolk Co marriage record of a Hillery Cherry who married Anna Brown on 22 May 1787. The surety was Abel Brown. A Hillery Cherry appears in the 1810 Federal census of Norfolk Co. (WD,28pmh)


        Hillery Cherry [C1a8e9], son of William Cherry, was born about 1770 in Pitt Co NC (age 1756-1774 in 1800). He was probably named for Hillery Carson, a neighbor, and possibly a relative. Hillery Cherry was probably born about 1770 since he witnessed a land sale on 19 January 1789 from John Cason to James Albritton (Book M, page 114). Witnesses, although often not adults, were usually at least age 18 or 19. Hillery married in the late 1790s and settled near Nathan Cherry. He later witnessed a bill of sale from William Cason to Nathan Cherry on 24 October 1796 (Book N, page 429). And on 28 June 1797 John Cherry (the politician?) sold 100 acres to Hillery Cherry for £75; witnesses were William Cherry and John Whitehead (deed book O, page 247). Hillery purchased his first land on 28 June 1797 when John ("Χ") Cherry sold 100 acres on the south side of Briery Branch (Book O, page 247) for £75 to Hillery Cherry; this was witnessed by John Whitehead & William Cherry. And on 14 January 1799 Hillery bought a negro from Joseph Moore and Joseph's wife Clotilla for £60. This was witnessed by Josiah Cherry and Nathan Cherry (deed book O, page 262). On 26 January 1799 Hillery Cherry and Rebekah Cherry were witnesses to a deed from John James (Hillery's next door neighbor in 1800) to John Cherry (Book O, page 234). Hillery later sold this land to Charles Rollins on 12 Mar 1804 (Book T, page 95), witnessed by John Ward and William ("Χ") Ward. So in a few deed records we find five Cherry names, probably all close neighbors, and possibly all closely related: Hillery, John, Joshua, Nathan, and William Cherry.

        In 1800 Hillery's close neighbors were Nathan Cherry, John Cherry, and John James. There was a male age 16 to 25 living with Hillery in 1800; the young male would have been too old to have been a son, so was likely Hillery's younger brother. Hillery married Alvana Ormond, probably about 1798. They were found in Pitt Co in 1800 and 1810. In the 1820 Pitt Co census they were living between Nathan Cherry and Ormond Cherry. Hillery died before 29 May 1823 in Pitt Co. They had eight children-

a.     William Cherry, b abt 1799 in Pitt Co NC. He married, but his wife's name is not known. (77,7e)

c.     George Walter Cherry, b 11 Oct 1928, married Martha Sue Champion. (77,386fx)

Evelyn's paternal grandmother was Amanda J Black, hence the reason for Evelyn's middle name. In 1940 Evelyn's 80 year old widowed father lived with them,and died at their home (1000 3rd Ave, Opelika) on 17 May 1942. He was buried at Opelika. His death record did not name the cemetery, but it was likely Rosemere Cemetery since Evelyn and Homer were buried there. Walter was born 1 Jan 1860 in Marvyn Co AL. Homer's mother lived with him in 1920. (77,M, 386uvwfxdc)


        Homer Worth Cherry [C1a8f5h6b5], son of Joseph Parish Cherry and Lillian Earle Bennett, was born 8 July 1916 at Tolar, Hood Co TX.

        Horace Holland Cherry [C1a6e2h1f6], son of John Holland Cherry and Helen Theodocia Johnson, was born 26 July 1882 at Kerens, Navarro Co TX and was a twin of his sister Helen. He married Frankie Cleveland Webster about 1906, probably in Navarro Co, and they lived at Kerens in June 1917. Frankie was born at Kerens, Navarro Co on 18 September 1888, daughter of John Thomas Webster and Mary A "Mollie" Delany. Horace was the deputy sheriff in 1920.

It is not known who this Mrs Neely Montgomery was, unless she was Horace’s sister Katy Cherry.

Frankie C Webster had a brother named John Talmage Webster, born 21 Jun 1892 at Kerens, and who died at Dallas on 7 Dec 1955. Frankie’s father’s middle name was also probably Talmage. Since Frankie’s father was born in 1829 and his mother Mollie was born in 1862, Mollie likely married again after John T (Sr) died. (W,M, TXd, 382Nsuvw, 178fd)

In his home in 1840 (census pg 314) there was just one boy, under age 10. Howell must have died in the 1850s; Arvazena was still in White Co in 1860 with three children in her home, and no husband. She was born in 1823 in AL. Since the eldest son was not living with Howell in 1840, but was alive in 1850, he must have been taken in by relatives during the 1840s. Then when Howell married in late 1840, son James may have also been taken in by older relatives.

        Isabella Cherry [C1a7d4c8], daughter of Cary W Cherry and Isabella McAdoo, was born in 1835 in Jackson Co TN (age 17 in 1850, 25 in 1860). She married Jackson T Woods about 1857, lived in Jackson Co in the summer of 1860, and had three children. These children were named in court records of the 1860s when Isabella and her siblings sued each other over what should have been their mother'sd dower. Jackson was born in 1826 in TN, and died at Rock Island, IL in the mid 1860s during the Civil War. These three Wood children were "minors under the age of 14 years." Isabella then married Edward C Gaines about 1865 and had about three more children before she died near the end of the 1860s. Edward C Gaines was not found in IL in 1860. In 1870 Edward and his third wife Millie R Conda were in Jackson Co TN. Millie was age 22 then, born in 1848 in TN. In 1880, Edward and Millie lived in Jackson Co TN with nine children. He died soon before March 1884. All Isabella's children still at home used the Gaines name in 1870. Edward was born in Jackson Co on 4 March 1825, son of Broadus Gaines (1792-1865) and Mary Elizabeth Long (1804-1840). Isabella's children were all born in TN.

        Isham Cherry [C1a8c1f], son of Jesse Cherry and Elizabeth Gainer, was born in 1778 in Martin Co NC. He was living in Ansom Co NC in March 1806, and died in Hardin Co TN soon before 15 September 1834. From Hardin Co court minutes on 15 September 1834, executor Eli Cherry made a settlement; fifty acres belonging to the estate of Isham Cherry was divided between Jesse Cherry, Eli Cherry, and the heirs of Noel Cherry, deceased. In the Haywood Co TN will of Isham's brother Daniel, Daniel mentions "my brother Isham, now deceased, who was my business manager." (Daniel died on 3 November 1843.) Isham was one of the early pioneer settlers of Hardin Co (as were his sisters Talitha and Lovey, and their husbands), having settled in Hardin Co in the second half of the 1810 decade. Isham settled in Wilson Co TN after 1811, and later Isham and some of his brothers moved into West TN, and to the part which became Hardin Co. In 1820, Isham and his son Eli were the only Cherry families in early Hardin Co.

        Isham was active in early Hardin Co politics for four years, but apparently dropped out of holding public office in 1824 because he disagreed with the laxity with which the political rules were followed. He operated a ferry across the Tennessee River in 1824. Isham married Silva Harrell. She was born about 1780. He and Silva had five children-

1.     Eli Cherry, b 31 Jan 1800

        Isham Barnett Cherry [C1a8c1f2e], son of Noel Cherry and Margaret Lilley, was born in 1830 in Hardin Co TN. He was a farmer in Hardin Co in 1850, and was single, living with his brother Harrell Cherry. Isham married Louisa Elizabeth Margaret Johnson about 1852 in Hardin Co. There was a bill of sale recorded in Hardin Co (Deed Book J, page 28), executed 14 October 1852 by Temple C Johnson of Hardin Co to "Luiza Elizabeth Cherry my daughter," sold a Negro girl named Judy who was 14 years old, for $700. Louisa apparently never paid off this $700 note because in her father's 1871 will he indicated that the $700 was to be subtracted from her inheritance. Louisa was born in 1830 in Hardin Co, daughter of Temple C Johnson and Letitia Rayburn, and died in the 1860s in Titus Co TX, probably in the Grey Rock area where they lived in 1860. They had moved to Grey Rock before their two eldest children were born, and had three children. Isham later married Josephine _____. She was born in 1847 in VA.

        On 23 September 1867 Isham bought 240 acres, called the Windsor Tract, on the west bank of the Tennessee River in Hardin Co for $1,500 from W B Windsor and his wife America J _____ of DeValls Bluff in Prairie Co AR. On 22 & 23 October 1867 (Hardin Co deed book O, page 75 & 74) "Isham B Cherry of Hardin County" sold 31 1/4 & 33 1/3 acres of the Windsor Tract to J H Hawkins and W P Alexander, & W M Jones. But then on 25 November 1867 (Hardin Co deed book O, page 33) "Isham B Cherry of Titus County" TX gave title to the 240 acre Windsor Tract to John A Smith of Hardin Co. Isham "placed my three children under the care of said John A Smith" ... "to maintain & educate" them. On 17 September 1869 (Hardin Co deed book O, page 309) John A Smith sold to "Isham B Cherry of Titus County" TX 240 acres of the Windsor Tract "including and excluding land previously sold to J H Hawkins & Wm Jones." Isham and Louisa lived at Gray Rock, Titus Co TX in 1860, next door to H L and his wife Lucy. Isham died in 1873 at Mt Pleasant, Titus Co; John A Smith was the administrator for his estate in Hardin Co. His four children were-

1.     Sarah M Louise Cherry, b Mar 1853

2.     Temple Johnson Cherry, b 28 May 1858

3.     Harrell Cherry, b 1860

4.     dau Cherry, born between 1870 and 1872 in Titus Co TX. (77) (77,EP)

In 1860 Isham and his family lived next door to H L Cherry (Isham's first cousin?).

From Goodspeed’s History of Stewart Co TN-

George B Riggins, the son of William and Methersia (Chisenhall) Riggins, is one of the enterprising farmers of Stewart County. His father and mother married in this State, though both were born in North Carolina. Having located in Montgomery County they followed agricultural pursuits for a livelihood, the father being quite a large farmer. He was one of the brave men who went to war in 1812, and in later years received a pension for his services. After an active, useful life he died at the age of eighty-three. The subject of this sketch was born on the farm in Montgomery County. He got a common school education while growing up and at the age of twenty-one launched out for himself. After renting for many years he bought a tract of ten acres, and afterward by hard work and good management increased it to 300 acres. He is the father of eight children by Isabella F. Cherry, to whom he was married in 1859. She belongs to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Politically he is a good Democrat. Having sold his farm in Montgomery County he bought 1000 acres where he now lives. Financially he has made good progress. Whatever he has is the result of his own efforts.
