        Lem Cherry [unknown], was a witness of the 4 January 1864 will of Patrick Roach will in Bibb Co GA (will book B, page 282). Lem was likely a son or grandson of Abner Cherry of Martin Co NC. (115,JY)


        Lemuel Cherry [C1a8], son of John Cherry Jr and Rebecca Maund, was born about 1685 in Lower Norfolk Co VA. He inherited 200 acres on the head of Indian Creek in Norfolk Co from his father in 1735. Lem was married first to Mary Courtney in VA about 1717. She was a daughter of James Courtney and Mary Jenkins. Lemuel was in the 30 June 1730 tithable listing of Norfolk Co (shown in some printed books as one of two "Samuel Cherry" men; the Samuel was probably Lemuel's brother), but after 1730 he is not found in Norfolk Co. He sold his land in VA and moved south to Beaufort Co NC, where he had a grant for 200 acres in 1733 (see map page ??). Beaufort Co deed book 2, page 161, records a deed dated 12 March 1733 from George Moye of Beaufort Precinct to Lemuel Cherry "of said province" for £150 a certain plantation or tract of land containing 60 acres on Tranter's Creek (usually called the Herring Run) on the north side of the Pamlico River. Witnesses were James Campen and Roger Jines. Lemuel married second to Gatsey Ann Llewellyn about 1730, probably in NC; she was a daughter of Captain George Llewellyn. Lemuel Cherry was on the 1742 Beaufort Co tax roster. In NC patent book 5, Lemuel Cherry was granted 200 acres on 20 April 1745 in Beaufort Co on the north side of Briery Branch adjoining William Congleton and the branch. His 1745 patent was with Charles Cherry and William Cherry, probably his sons. This would place Charles' and William's birth dates by the late 1720s, or before. Part of this Pitt Co tract was later sold to Lemuel Cherry's neighbor Joseph Jolly Sr, who sold it to Isaac Knox in August 1763, and he sold it to John Griffin in March 1764. In March 1771 John Cherry sold some of this same tract to Joseph Holiday.

        Lem left a will in Beaufort Co NC dated 14 July 1754; it was not written by him, but was clearly signed by him as "Lem Cherry." Witnesses were William Willis, Griffin Floyd, and Peter Floyd. Lem died by early September 1754 because his will was proven in the September court, and an inventory of his estate was made on 10 September 1754 and then presented to the court. The persons who made the inventory were John Cherry and William Willis (per WD), who were also the executors.

Lemuel Cherry's will, dated 14 Jul 1754, recorded in 1754 in Will Book A, page 94, Beaufort Co NC, proven in the September 1754 Court, at Bath Town, Beaufort Co:

        Lem named his married daughters with their married name; daughters not married were given the Cherry name. Lem had five children with Mary Courtney and ten from his marriage with Gatsey Llewellyn. By January 1765 his young son Willis was still a minor, and was bound to William Willis. Lem's wife was not named in his will, but all fifteen children were. The order of birth of his ten youngest children was determined from his will which named "my 10 youngest children" in the order given; some of the birth years are estimates-

Lemuel Cherry is often incorrectly called Samuel Cherry because of the similarity between 18th Century handwritten letters S and L. His signature on his will and its following probate court records make it clear that the name should be Lemuel and not Samuel. Slaves named in Lemuel's estate inventory were James, Rachel, and Maryann. (77,57,86, 89,114,DK,WD, C,4pt, 7z,5p)


        Lemuel Cherry [C1a8j], son of Lemuel Cherry and Gatsey Ann Llewellyn, was born 20 October 1736 in Beaufort Co NC. Some sources place him as a twin of Samuel. Samuel cannot be the twin because Samuel's obituary in October 1815 said Lemuel Cherry of Pitt Co died "in his 76th year." If anyone was a twin to Lemuel, it must have been Solomon. (Lemuel and Solomon were the only two Cherry families in Pitt Co in 1775.) Lemuel married Nancy Ann Moring at Martinsborough (now Greenville; its name was changed to Greenville in 1786), Pitt Co in 1774. Lemuel was a private in the Newbern District Militia, and was on a Pitt Co safety committee on 17 July 1775. Lemuel and his family were living in Pitt Co in 1775 because they were found on a county tax list then in Captain William Burney's district. This was the area southwest of Martinsborough. Their household in 1775 showed one male over the age of 16, one female over the age of 16, and a girl. They had no slaves. Their close neighbors were Michael Moss, George Williams, John Stocks Senr, David Mills, and Frek Mills. In April 1778 Thomas English sold Lemuel 81 acres in Pitt Co for £40. Then in October 1782 Lemuel was granted two tracts of 100 acres each from NC (Book G, pages 104 & 105) (compensation for his service in the Militia?), and his brother Solomon, on the same date, was granted a 95 acre and a 100 acre tract (Book G, pages 180 & 181). Lemuel and Nancy were living in Pitt Co in 1790 with five sons and four daughters; they had two slaves. In 1800 they had two daughters aged 16 to 25, one son the same age, four sons age 10 to 15, and four girls and one boy under age 10; they had five slaves then. He and Nancy were not found in Pitt Co in 1810. He perhaps died in 1815 in Edgecombe Co. See the biography of his brother Samuel.

        Nancy was born about 1755, daughter of John Moring Sr and Sarah Harris, and died about 1831. In October 1801 in Pitt Co (book O page 532) John Moring (written "Mooring") gave to his daughter Nancy Cherry and her husband Lemuel Cherry four Negroes "for love and affection." Nancy and Lemuel had twelve children-

Lemuel Cherry, on 1 Jul 1775 signed a Pledge of Allegiance in Pitt Co to pay all due allegiance to his Majesty King George, but this pledge also stated "at the same time we are determined to assert our rights as men and sensible that by the later acts of Parliament the most valuable liberties and priveleges of America are invaded and endeavor to be violated and destroyed and that under God the preservation of them depends on a firm union of the inhabitants and a sturdy spirited observation of the resolutions of the general Congress being shocked at the cruel scenes now acting in the Massachusetts Bay and determined never to become slaves to any power upon earth we do hereby agree and associate under all types of religion,honour, and regard for posterity that we will adopt and endeavor to execute the measure which the general Congress now sitting at Philadelphia conclude on for preserving our Consititution and opposing the execution of the several arbitrary illegal acts fo the Bristish Parliament and that we will readily observe the directions of our general committee for the purpose aforesaid the preservation of peace and good order and security of individuals and private property."

In other words, the signers told King George that he was the King, and the signers in Pitt Co would not put up with his tyranny any longer. Lemuel was the only Cherry name who made that pledge. See the Pitt Co early census on page 848. (77,C,4p,35i, 7aehzt)


        Lemuel Cherry [C1a7d4], son of William Cherry and Elizabeth Manning, was born about 1750 in Norfolk Co VA. He married Sarah McPherson, daughter of Andrew McPherson, about 1777 in Norfolk Co. They were the only Cherry family living in Norfolk Co close to the McPherson families in 1785. Lemuel died in 1829, before 29 May, in Jackson Co TN where they were living in 1820. An indenture was made in the Chancery Court of Jackson Co on 29 May 1829, by Edwin Price, administrator of the estate of said Lemuel Cherry, made receipt of a "certain tract of land lying on the head waters of Trace Creek, it being a part of the land where Lemuel Cherry formerly lived. "

        Sarah was born about 1760 in Norfolk Co, and died before 1821 in Jackson Co. Lemuel had settled in Jackson Co about 1798 (since daughter Elizabeth was born in 1800 in TN, Lemuel must have moved to Jackson Co at the end of the 18th Century, in 1798 or 1799). He was on the county tax roster there in 1802 (the first Cherry name on any TN tax list). On the way to Jackson Co they spent a few years in Edgecombe Co NC where their children Sarah and Wilson were born. Lemuel and his family settled in Jackson Co on the headwaters of Trace Creek. Earlier, Lemuel had a "sugar camp" on Garrison's Fork (Browning Creek). Lemuel's wife Sarah died before 1821 in Jackson Co. He and Sarah had nine children-

c.     Cary W Cherry, b 1790

d.     Sarah Cherry, b 1794

e.     Wilson Cherry, b 1797

f.     Elizabeth Cherry, b 1800

i.      Mary Cherry, b 1810

There was often a William Cherry, born about the same time as son Wilson, who lived near brothers John and Cary. Researchers have assumed that he was actually son Wilson, but with Wilson’s name incorrectly written as William. William lived in Jackson Co TN in 1820, as did sons Cary and John. And in 1830, sons Cary and John were in Jackson Co, along with Wilson. Hence, William and Wilson must be the same son of Lemuel. (77,26itr)


        Lemuel Cherry [unknown], of Halifax Co NC, witnessed the 8 October 1789 will of Richard Whitaker in Halifax Co. James Jones was the other witness. Since witnesses of wills were usually well established adults (witnesses of deed transactions were often as young as 19), this would place Lemuel's birth date somewhere around 1750. And the 29 June 1804 will of James Baker, proven in November 1810, named his wife Elizabeth, and children and some grandchildren. Not all children named were called "son" or "daughter," but the relationship was usually clear. Two persons named were "Patsy Jones Baker" (a grand-daughter?) and "Frances Cherry." All daughters were with married names. Because the two witnesses of the Whitaker will were Lemuel Cherry and James Jones, and because of the repeated Cherry-Jones connection in the James Baker will, perhaps Lemuel's wife was Frances Baker, daughter of James Baker. (123)


        Lemuel Cherry [C1a8f2f], son of John Cherry and Mary _____ of Beaufort Co NC, was born about 1804 in NC. He was named as executor of his father's 26 July 1836 will, so was born by 1815 (to be age 21). He was probably one of the two young men living with his father in 1820, thus placing his birth date between 1795 and 1804. The 1840 Beaufort Co census placed his birth date in the 1800s, and he was at that time (as Lamb Cherry) living next door to his father, and three doors from J R Cherry. Lamb had married Irene Woolard, daughter of Martin Woolard, about 1830. Irene was born in the 1810s. She left a 2 March 1844 will in Beaufort Co in which she named five children, and no husband. Witnesses were J R Cherry (Lemuel's first cousin) and (Mrs) Temperence Brown. Executors were "friend" Elvin Woolard and Hardy Stalions. "

        Because the children and wives of the other Cherry men in Beaufort Co in 1840 are fairly well established, the only male who could be the husband of Irene was Lemuel. He was not found in Beaufort Co in 1850, and since he was not named in Irene's March 1844 will, Lemuel had probably died in the early 1840s. Irene died within a few days of her will. Lemuel and Irene's children named in her will were-

1.     Catherine Elizabeth Cherry, b 1831 at Trantors Creek, Beaufort Co NC, was allowed to have enough money from her mother's 1844 will to complete twelve months of schooling. Elizabeth married Durham Perry about 1853 in Beaufort Co NC. Durham was born in NC in 1830. In 1860 they lived at Tranters Creek. By 1860 they had two children-

        a.     Narcissa Perry, b 1854 in Beaufort Co NC. (4q)

        b.     Melissa Perry, b 1858 in Beaufort Co NC. (4q)

3.     Margaret Levinia Cherry, b 1835 at Trantors Creek, Beaufort Co NC. In 1860 she was living with her sister Catherine Elizabeth Cherry. (87,4kq)

4.     Robert Churchill Cherry, b 1836 at Trantors Creek, Beaufort Co NC, was single, and living with his brother Wiley in 1860. By 1880 he was married, and living in Beaufort Co close to his brother Wiley. Robert's wife was Harriet Cornelia Perry. born about 1843 in NC.

        Lemuel Cherry [C1a8p4], son of Willis W Cherry and Sarah _____ of Duplin Co NC, was born in 1779 in Duplin Co (he was age 71 in the 1850 Duplin Co census). Lemuel was named in his father's will, and at times was called "Lamb." Lemuel married Sarah Bizzell (per source 99), his neighbor, and daughter of William Bizzell and Hannah _____, about the end of the 1790s. She was born in 1771, and must have died within a year or two, because Lemuel married Rockselena Duncan in Duplin Co on 20 January 1801 (per mg records, Duplin Co). Bond was given by Hardy Bizzell, who was Lemuel's brother-in-law when he was still married to Sarah Bizzell, and the witness was William Dickson, the county clerk. Rockselena's father may have been Isaac Duncan who lived next door to Lemuel in 1790; there were also other Duncan families in the county at the time. Lemuel in 1810 and 1820 lived close to his brother William Cherry, of about the same age. Lemuel was an ensign in the 9th Company of Duplin Co and served in the War of 1812 (shown as "Samuel Cherry" in some printed books). His wife Rockselena was born in the early 1780s. He had five children by 1810 (all under age 10) and four slaves, seven children by 1820, and then ten by 1830. Rockselena died between 1830 and 1850, and in 1850 Lemuel was living with Elender Young, probably his sister's in-law. Nancy (Cherry) Young was living with Duncan Cherry, Lemuel's son, two doors from Lemuel. "Lemuel Cherry Died September the 6th 1859" per family bible record. Mr A R Hicks, age 46, was the administrator for Lemuel's estate. Lemuel's children were-

William Dickson was the county clerk in 1779, 1784, 1786, 1801, and perhaps in other years. William Parker, age 17, was living with Lemuel and Elender in 1850. A R Hicks, the administrator of Lemuel's estate, was married to Athamesia _____. She was born in 1816, and by 1860 had nine children aged between 19 years and 10 months.

        In 1784 there were only two Bizzell families, and in the same district as Lemuel's father's home. They were: William Bizzell (next door to Willis) with two males under age 21 (or one male under 21, one between 21 and 60, and one – William – over age 60) and four females; and James Bizzell with a boy under age 21 and two females. William Bizzell and his wife Hannah (called "Hanner" in William's will) moved from VA to Edgecombe Co NC in 1763, and on to Duplin Co in 1772. They settled on the north side of Goshen Swamp, and the east side of White Oak Branch. They had the following children: son James, born 1760, died in 1822, married Mary Bowden; son Arthur, born 1762, died in 1822, married Elizabeth Ann Turner; daughter Nancy, born in 1764, never married, and died in 1830; daughter Patty was born in 1765, married _____ Worrell; son Hardy, born in 1769, died in 1848, and married Margaret Denmark; daughter Sarah, born in 1771, married Lemuel Cherry, probably at the end of the 1780s; son Isaac, born in 1773, died before 1850, and married Nancy Hooten & Zilpha Musgrave; daughter Elizabeth, born in 1775, married William Goodman; daughter Rachel, born in 1776, married James Woodward; daughter Mary, born in 1779, married _____ Worrell. Not all of William Bizzell's children were named in his will. Son James Bizzell, not named, was born in Nansemond Co VA in 1760 and married Mary Bowden on 9 January 1781 in Duplin Co; she was a daughter of Bryan Bowden of Duplin Co. James' children were: Elizabeth, born in 1785; Elijah, born in 1787; Catherine, born in 1788; Sarah, born in 1789; Nancy, born in 1790; James, born in 1791; Samuel, born in 1797; daughter Molesey, born in 1798; and Alesy, born in 1798 (probably a twin of Molesey).

        William Bizzell patented 90 acres in Duplin Co on 22 July 1774, land on the north side of Goshen Swamp and on the east side of White Oak branch near Nicholas Bowden's plantation, and joining Blanchard's and Bizzell's land (Grant 8341, page 8). Therefore, William Bizzell was of an age to be the father of Lemuel Cherry's wife Sarah Bizzell, and lived close to Lemuel's father Willis W Cherry. William Bizzell's 6 August 1800 Duplin Co will named wife Hanner, some grandchildren, and sons and daughters. One named daughter was "Sarah Cherry." We can be sure that this Sarah Cherry was Lemuel's wife because there were only two Bizzell families in Duplin Co in 1784: James Bizzell and William Bizzell, and James was a son of William; William lived next to Willis W Cherry; Willis provided the bond for the 1781 marriage between James Bizzell and Mary Bowden. William Bizzell's 6 August 1800 Duplin Co will named his wife Hannah, daughter Sarah Cherry, son Hardy Bizzell, and other children and grandchildren. Therefore, because William was a grandfather, and most of his children were married adults, he was of an age to be Lemuel's father-in-law. And Willis provided the bond for the marriage of Sarah Bizzell to James Hurst in Duplin Co on 8 November 1781. This could not be Lemuel's wife since Lemuel's wife was born in 1771; Sarah of the 1781 marriage must have been a widowed daughter-in-law of William Bizzell, and Willis Cherry provided the bond for his neighbor's widow. William's daughter, named in his 1800 will, was Sarah Cherry, not Sarah Hurst. (68,99, B,105,1088,C, 35maeijnq)


        Lemuel Cherry [C1a7d4b6], probably a son of John Cherry of Norfolk Co VA and Jackson Co TN, was born in Jackson Co in 1816 (age 34 in 1850, 39 in 1860). In 1850 he lived in Barren Co KY, two counties north of Jackson Co. Lemuel had married Louisa J Barrett about 1847. She was born in 1830 in Metcalf Co KY. They lived in Barren Co’s Division 2 in 1850 and had two children by then, both in Barren Co. In 1860 they were in Metcalfe Co KY and had four more chidren-

Nancy Wilson, age 75 and born in VA, lived with Margaret and Edward in 1880. Mrs Wilson was "Wifes Grandma." In 1860 she was the 54 year old wife of Isaac R Wilson; he was born in 1793, both in VA, and lived in Barren Co. In 1850 this Isaac was age 57, born in VA, as was his 48 year old wife Lucy Pedigo. Lucy apparently died in the 1850s, and Isaac then married widow Mrs Nancy Cherry before 1860. He died in Barren Co in the 1860s; Nancy was a 70 year old widow in Barren Co in 1870, born in VA, living with Thomas Moten (1807 NC) and his wife Martha (1810 NC) (421q, 420nqsd) (26j,420nd, 421q)


        Lemuel Cherry [C1a8k5e], son of William Cherry and Delaney _____(Smith?) of Pitt Co NC, was born in 1819 in Pitt Co. In 1850 he was a farmer in Greenville District, and had married Pheny Perlinah Smith about 1841. She was born 20 November 1822 in NC. Lemuel and his son William fought in the Civil War; he enlisted in Pitt Co on 2 January 1862. On 03 April 1862 he was in Company C, North Carolina 44th Infantry Regiment, and died from wounds on 18 October 1863 at a hospital at Alexandria, VA. He was buried in Alexandria Cemetery. Pheny ("Pelina" in 1870) was the head of her household at Greenville in 1870 and 1880. She died on 20 September 1885. By 1850 they had five children, and eventually nine, all in Pitt Co-

He married Jane Ellen Ezzell in Duplin Co on 19 July 1865; bond was provided by Haskill Jones. Jane was born in NC in July 1844. They were living in Duplin Co in 1870 to 1900, and by 1900 had nine children, with seven still alive. Jane died in the 1900s and in 1910 Lemuel lived with their son Jacob. Lemuel died in Duplin Co on 12 February 1915. His children were all born in Duplin Co-

        Lemuel Boyd Cherry [C1a7d4c3], son of Cary W Cherry and Isabella McAdoo, was born in 1822 in Jackson Co TN. In 1850 he was single, living in Jackson Co close to his brother John McAdoo Cherry. When the Civil War broke out, Lemuel served in Company B, 4th Battalion Tennessee Infantry, and died at Rock Island, IL on 5 January 1864. He was a Private. (125,77, M,26kn)


        Lemuel G Cherry [C1a8f5d], son of William Cherry and Polly _____, was born in NC in 1803. His father lived in Montgomery Co TN in 1808 when he bought land in Stewart Co, so Lemuel must have been no older than 5 years old when his family left NC. His father's family was listed in the 1820 Stewart Co census; there was a teenage boy of Lemuel's age in the household. Lemuel was called to jury duty in Stewart Co in February 1830, and in the summer of 1830 in Stewart Co Lemuel was the head of his home (as Lamuel G Cherry, age 20-29), married to a woman of the same age as Lemuel, and with three children. In 1840 he was found in Montgomery Co, the county to the east. His wife then was born between 1811 and 1820. This was Delilah A Dodd, who was his second wife, and who was born in 1817 (age 35 in 1850). Therefore, Lemuel's first wife had died in the 1830s, perhaps in Stewart Co, and he had moved to Montgomery Co by 1840 to start a new life. In the 1836 Montgomery Co tax list "Lemuel G Cherry" was shown with 100 acres, no slaves, and he was the only taxable person (i.e., of age). He was also a Justice of the Peace in Montgomery Co in October 1845. Lemuel ran for the office of Representative of the Montgomery Co area to the State Capitol in 1849, but lost to G A Harrell; Lemuel received 46% of the vote. In 1850 he was still in Montgomery Co with his wife Delilia. They apparently had nine children, but since two much older children were living with Lemuel and Delia in 1850, too old to be her children, Delia was probably a second wife who married Lemuel about 1835. She died on 7 February 1853 and was buried in Liberty Cumberland Church Cemetery. Lemuel married again, to Julia Atkins about 1855. She was born in 1816. Lemuel died on 16 November 1870 in Montgomery Co TN and was buried with Delila. Their graves are in a section of the cemetery that also has many Riggins graves.

        The following information on son Melville, who lived in Paducah Co KY, presents more light on this family:

        "Melville V Cherry is the fifth of a family of ten children, of Lemuel Cherry and Delilah Dodd. The family is of English origin and was first represented in the United States by two brothers, one of whom settled in Virginia and the other in North Carolina, in the colonial period. Lemuel Cherry was the son of the latter, was born in North Carolina and in childhood was brought by his parents to Steward County, Tenn. There he attained his manhood, removing thence to Montgomery County, Tenn., near Clarksville, where he married Delilah Dodd, and where Melville V. was born in 1845. In that county the mother died about 1851, the father surviving until 1869, when he too, died." The Kentucky biography goes on to give more details of son Melville.

        Lemuel had fourteen children, three with his first wife, probably ten with Delilah, and one with Julia. All were born in TN (the last eleven probably were born in Montgomery Co)-

        Lemuel G Cherry [unknown], served in the Indian Wars from 1873 to 1876. He applied for a pension (#13801) on 12 August 1918 for his service, and died at Winston-Salem, NC on 17 December 1931. His widow was May P _____ applied for a widow's pension (#1709058) on 28 December 1931. (M)


        Lemuel J Cherry [C2d1f4h], son of William B Cherry and Sarah Jane Gross, was born in September 1866 in Macon Co MO. He married Miss Elizabeth Catherine Mathis of Valley Twp in Macon Co on 29 April 1888 at her parents’ home. She was born 11 May 1869 in Macon Co, daughter of Isaac Robert Mathis and Betsy Gross. They lived at Callao in 1900 where Lem was a shoemaker. He died at Callao on 27 July 1942 and was buried at Callao. "Catherine Cherry" of Callao was the informant for his death certificate. She died at Macon in a rest home on 6 March 1959. Robert Mathis of Callo was the informant for her death certificate. They had a son-

1.     Ralph Cherry, b 25 Apr 1889 at Callao. He never married and worked with his father in their shoe repair shop at Callao, Macon Co. He died of heat exhaustion at Macon on 30 July 1955. His mother was the informant for his death certificate. Ralph fought in WW1. He was buried in Locust Grove Cemetery. His parents named on his death certificate were "Lem Cherry" and "Kate Mathis." (140ufd) (140rsmufd)


        Lemuel Jackson Cherry [C1a7d4c9c], son of Cary Stewart Cherry and Marinda Hestand, was born 23 February 1864 in Jackson Co TN. He married Lucetta B McGaughan on 25 October 1887 in Clay Co and they lived at Whitleyville. Lem died on 29 October 1895. (77,103, C,64m)


        Lemuel S Cherry [C1a7d4e2], son of Wilson Cherry and Catherine Hodge, was living in Jackson Co TN in 1860, but was not found in 1850. He was born in 1825. Lemuel had married Ruth _____ (Plumlee?) about 1848. She was born in 1829 in IL. In 1870 she was the head of her home, Lemuel apparently having died in the 1860s. In Ruth's home in 1870 were four children (Catherine was missing), a 3 year old boy named Newton Shay (Catherine's son?), and 20 year old Pleasant Cherry. Lemuel had five daughters, all born in Jackson Co-

1.     July A Cherry, b 1849 (77,26r)

2.     Catherine Cherry, b 1851

3.     Jane Cherry, b 1854 (77,26r)

4.     Mary Cherry, b 1856 (77,26r)

5.     Sarah Cherry, b 1857 (77,26r)

Note that Lemuel named his daughter Catherine the same name as the wife of Wiley Cherry, and Wiley's daughter Ruth had the same name as Lemuel's wife. Wiley was a son of Lemuel Cherry, but this older Lemuel had no known children named Lemuel. Ruth, in 1870, was living close to widow Mrs Mary Cherry (age 44) and her five children, Cary N Condra (son of Sarah Theresa Cherry), Charlotte Cherry (age 54), and J B Cherry (son of William Carroll Cherry). These close neighbors were predominantly descendants of Cary W Cherry. But Cary W Cherry had a son named Lemuel Boyd Cherry who was six years younger than Ruth's husband and who was not married in 1850. Therefore, the elder Lemuel was likely a nephew of Cary W Cherry. Of Cary's brothers, the only ones old enough to have a son born in 1816 were John (born in 1785) and Wilson (born in 1797). A (Mrs?) Rutha Cherry was living with William Plumlee (age 58) and his wife Elizabeth Moss (age 56) in 1850 in Jackson Co, with her son Thomas J Cherry, age 4/12. This Rutha was a daughter of William Plumlee and wife Elizabeth. (77,26knr) (JY, 26nqr)


        Lemuel Turner Cherry [C1a7d4e5b], son of Alexander Jackson Cherry and Permelia Hestand, was born 30 December 1863 in Jackson Co TN.

Lemuel died on 11 May 1950 at Moss, Clay Co; Missouri died on 17 November 1933. They had nine children, all in Clay Co TN-

        Lena Cherry [C1a7d4e5b3], daughter of Lemuel Turner Cherry and Missouri Ellen Plumlee, was born 14 February 1891 at Moss, Clay Co TN, and died in October 1972 at Gallatin, Sumner Co TN. She probably married soon before 1910 since she was not living at home then. (SL,64u)


        Lena Rivers Cherry [C1a7f4e2c3], daughter of Joseph William Cherry and Pennaritta Jean Pritchard, was born 3 January 1866 in Bertie Co NC (she was not shown in her parents' home in the 1880 census). Lena married Robert Watson Rawls on 12 January 1890. He was born 24 March 1867 in Bertie Co, son of Moore Rawls and Judith Frances Garrett, and was a brother of Frances G Rawls who married Lena's brother Ervin Cherry. Robert died in December 1928 at Ahoskie, Hertford Co. Lena died on 29 August 1925 at Ahoskie and was buried at Woodville, Bertie Co. They had six children-

After Clarence died on 2 April 1916, Judith married Homer A Eure (1884 NC) and lived a few doors from her parents at Holly Grove, Gates Co in 1920. They were still there in 1930 with her two sons. The spelling for her sons in the 1920 and 1930 census was Rawles, but death records show Rawls, without the E. Judith and Clarence had two sons-

        Levi Cherry [C1a8h1], son of Cader Cherry and Judith Burnett of Beaufort and Edgecombe Co Counties NC, was born about 1755, probably in Beaufort Co since his father lived there in 1743. Levi married Sally _____ who died in 1835 in Edgecombe Co. They had moved to Edgecombe Co by 1776 because on 19 October that year Edward Cobb of Edgecombe Co, planter, sold to "Levi Cherry of same, planter," 175 acres on Averoy's Creek for £85. Witnesses were Cader Cherry, John Thigpen, and Jonathan Thigpen. And on 15 February 1783 William Gainer of Halifax Co sold 200 acres to Thomas Lewis of Edgecombe Co. This land was adjoining the property of James Thigpen, Levi Cherry, and Clementine Leggett, and was on the north side of Tar River on "Coneto Pocosin." One of the witnesses at this sale was David Cobb. From these two land deeds, we know that Levi (and probably his father Cader Cherry) lived in a neighborhood of Cobb and Thigpen families on Avery's Creek, on the north side of the Tar River near the Coneto River. His daughter Elizabeth married Jonas Cobb. Levi and his family were listed on the 1790 census of Edgecombe Co: one male age 16 or older -- hired help?, or an unknown son?; two males under age 16 (Levi Jr & Eason), and seven females (wife and six daughters).

        Levi died in January or February 1824 in Edgecombe Co. The principal buyers at his estate sale were his wife Sally, and Aaron, John W, and Eason Cherry. The administrators were Aaron Atkinson (husband of Levi's daughter Sarah) and Silas Everett (husband of Levi's daughter Rebecca). Sally's estate records of November 1835 named ten heirs (Rebecca Everett, Spica Pippin, Anna Thigpen, Aaron Cherry, Lucy Crisp, Elizabeth Cobb, Sally Atkinson, Kinchen Cherry, Eason Cherry, and "the heirs of Rhoda Wilkinson, decd"); Levi Jr, who died in 1815, was not named in her estate records. Sally's administrator was Aaron Atkinson. Their children were-

a.     Rebecca Cherry, b 1776-1780

b.     Rhoda Cherry, b 1778

c.     Spica Cherry, b abt 1779

d.     Sarah Cherry, b abt 1780

e.     Kinchen Cherry, b 1783

f.     Elizabeth Cherry, b 1787

g.     Eason Cherry, b 1791-1794

h.     Levi Cherry Jr, b 1791-1794

i.      Anna Cherry, b 1795

j.      Lucy Cherry, b 1797

k.     Aaron Cherry, b abt 1798 (57,94,77,WD,5apehij)


        Levi Cherry Jr [C1a8h1h], son of Levi Cherry and Sally _____ of Edgecombe Co NC, was born between 1791 and 1794 in Edgecombe Co. In 1815 he and his father were on the county tax list. He was in the 1st Regiment of the NC Militia; he served in the War of 1812. He died by 15 August 1815. His estate inventory was made by John Wilkerson, the administrator and Levi's brother-in-law. His father was still alive when Levi died. There is no evidence that Levi married or had children. In 1810 he was single, living near Aaron Cherry (Aaron was born by 1765).(WD,5pht)


        Levi Cherry [C1a8h1g5], son of Eason Cherry and Martha Patsy Cobb of Edgecombe Co NC, was born in NC in 1823, and died in Edgecombe Co in December 1849 of pneumonia. Amos W Cobb was appointed to be "special administrator" for the estate, thus indicating that Levi had urgent business matters to be attended to which couldn't wait for the normally slow process of probate. The 1850 census shows that Martha _____, wife of Levi Cherry of Edgecombe Co, was widowed in the 1849-1850 winter, so she must have been the wife of this Levi Cherry. Martha was the principal buyer at his estate sale in January 1850. He died by 25 September 1852 when his is estate was sued by Framklin G Pitt for an unpaid dept. The administrator was Amos W Cobb. (5jp) Amos W Cobb was born in NC in 1806 and was a farmer in Edgecombe Co in 1860. (85,5nqp)

        Lewis Cass Cherry [C1a8c1j2h], son of Wiley P Cherry and Julia Etta Whitley, was born 19 November 1848 at Dancyville, Haywood Co TN. He married Statyra Isabella Coppedge in Haywood Co on 18 January 1875. She was born 19 November 1855 at Dancyville, and died there on 12 November 1937. Lewis died on 19 December 1940 at Dancyville.

He married Lucy H Smith in Lee Co on 25 December 1879, and died in 1906. He was buried in Rosemere Cemetery at Opelika. In 1880 they lived at Opelika and he was a merchant in a dry goods store. Lucy was born in Coosa Co AL in 1862, daughter of John J Smith (1822 AL) and Mary F / S _____ (1824 GA), and was a sister of John J Smith who married Lewis' sister Artie. (JC,52q 386rmsc).


        Lewis Knight Cherry [C1a3f2a2], son of Aaron Cherry and Elizabeth Holmes Knight, was born 21 October 1799 in Edgecombe Co NC. He married Charity Brown, daughter of Jacob Brown Sr and Susannah _____, about 1827, probably in Martin Co. She was born 8 March 1807 in NC. In 1830 they lived in Martin Co and had one son by then. In Edgecombe Co, as part of the estate settlement of his father in the May 1842 court session, there was a division of the inherited slaves of Aaron Cherry among Aaron's heirs, "namely, Lunsford R Cherry, Sally R Jones, and Henry Hyman as guardian for the heirs of Lewis Cherry, decd., April 18, 1842." In 1830 Lewis was living in Martin Co next door to Dawson Cherry [C1a5b2c7]. Lewis K Cherry lived in Macon, GA as indicated by a Tax Digest of 1838. He was listed as owning 202½ acres of land in District 15, No. 128. An obit from Southern Christian Advocate dated 23 November 1838: "Lewis K. Cherry was born in Edgecombe Co., NC Oct 21, 1799 and removed to this state some years past. He died the 25th ult. of comsumption. Wife and three children survive." His death date was 25 October 1838 at Marshallville, Macon Co GA. He was buried near behind an inn on the Flint River. Family information stated that his wife put the fence around the grave at a later date, thus explaining the 1866 date on the gate. The grave is located on the property where the Stagecoach Inn near Marshallville, Macon Co., GA was located. This was on the old stagecoach road near the Flint River and the grave was below the Inn site.

        His wife Charity married again, to John James Kaigler on 4 April 1841. There is an Edgecombe Co deed record (Book 26, page 382) in which "Charity Kaigler, formerly the widow of Lewis K Cherry" and Francis L Cherry, George W Cherry, James N Cole and wife Elizabeth of Russell Co AL all made deed transfers to Lunsford R Cherry on 18 January 1853. Lunsford was Lewis K Cherry's brother, and Charity was Lewis' widow who had remarried to a Mr Kaigler. Lewis' mother's 12 March 1840 will in Edgecombe Co named her son "Lewis K Cherry, deceased," so we know he had died by then.

        In 1850 in Russell Co AL, Charity Kaigler was a widowed farmer, and was born in NC in 1807. Living with her were two Kaigler children, and next door in one home were her three children from her marriage with Lewis: Francis, George, and Elizabeth Cherry. Charity died on 7 July 1883 and was buried in the family plot in Rosemere Cemetery at Opelika, Lee Co AL next to her son George. Their known children were-

a.     Francis Lafayette Cherry, b 3 May 1828

b.     George Washington Cherry, b 17 Jul 1831

c.     Sarah Elizabeth Cherry, b 1834

Charity's child from her marriage with John James Kaigler was James Kaigler, born in Russell Co in 1843. John J Kaigler also had a son from a prior marriage, William Kaigler, born in NC in 1835. Both boys were living with Charity in 1850. (57,83,95, 77,N,52n,1j,5epiq,386c)


        Louis D Cherry [C1a6h2f], son of Caleb Cherry Jr and an unknown mother, was born in 1818 in IL (per 1850, 1870, & 1880 census). He married Martha A McCance on 9 November 1839 in Davidson Co. She was born in TN in 1822. They were found in Davidson Co in 1840 (with no children yet), then were in Gibson Co in 1850 next door to Robert Cherry. In their home oin 1850 were five children, Ebinezer the youngest at age 2. Louisand family were in Obion Co in 1860 and 1870. Martha died in the 1870s and Louis then married another Martha about 1879 who was born in 1863 in TN. They lived in Obion Co in 1880 with his three youngest children from his first marriage. Louis and Martha McCance had at least ten children-

1.     Selina H Cherry, b 1841, may have been the woman of the same name who married John W Work in Davidson Co on 7 July 1864. (C,13n,63q,16m)

2.     Mandy A Cherry, b 1842. She married J Thornbury Elledge in Obion Co on 26 April 1860 and they lived with her parents in Obion Co in June 1860. In 1880, 18 year old granddaughter Sarah Elledge lived with Mandy's father in Obion Co. There was a Davidson Co marriage between a Mary Cherry and Ambrose Elledge on 3 June 1830. (C,13n,63mq)

3.     Sarah N Cherry, b 1845, married C B Howel in Obion Co on 2 July 1866. (C,13n, 63qm)

4.     Martha C Cherry, b 1847, married L T Roberts in Obion Co on 9 November 1865. (13n, 63q)

5.     Ebenezer Cherry, b 1848 in TN. He was Ebinezer Cherry in 1850, age 2; Eb Cherry in 1860, age 10. "Edd" Cherry, married, died of influenza at Kenton, Obion Co on 4 February 1923. John Finch, his boyhood friend and next door neighbor in 1860, was the informant for Ed's death certificate,and said that Edd's parents were "Louis Cherry" and "Martha McGorran." Finch also gave Ed's birth date as 19 November 1848. In 1880 "Edward Cherry" and his wife Martha _____ lived at Kenton, Obion Co. Ed was age 27 and Martha was age 20, both born in TN. In their home then were two sons: James L Cherry, age 4; and William Cherry, age 1. Living a few doors away was widow Mrs Sarah Cherry, her daughter Dora Cherry, and two Cherry step-children. This Mrs Sarah Cherry was the widow of Willie B Cherry [C1a6h2b4], Ed W Cherry's first cousin.

In 1900 in Obion Co, Mr "E W Cherry" and wife Annie Greer claimed they had three children and married in 1875. Annie was born in January 1865, so her age must have been fudged for vanity. E W was born in Nov 1849. In their home were eight children, but only the youngest three were Annie's. This same family was stillin Obion Co in 1910, but in that census the head of their home was Edward W Cherry, age 62; his wife was Anna, age 50. Everyone was born in TN, and Annie's daughter from her first marriage also lived with them. This time the census showed that each was married to their second spouse, and Annie and Edward married in 1900. By this time, Annie had seven children, with four still living. "Mrs Annie Weatherly" and "E W Cherry" married in Obion Co on 17 May 1900, and in June 1900 all three of her children (from, her first marriage) were still alive, then it appears that the younger Cherry from the 1900 census were not hers. All of Ed's children were-

        a.     Willie Robert Cherry, b 10 Aug 1878. He lived at Kenton, Obion Co in 1918. (M,63u)

        b.     Savannah Cherry, b Jul 1885 (63u)

When the Civil War ended, many slave children had been orphaned, either because of the death of their masters or parents during the war, or because their parents could not feed them. Therefore, a plan to teach and feed these newly freed Black orphans was set up. The more affluent adults, including Black adults, took in some of these orphaned children. They were required to feed and teach the orphans a trade and provide basic education until they became adults. Hiram was one person who did this. He had assigned to him on 28 Dec 1865 the following children: Church, aged 10 years; Monroe, aged 10 years; Ned, aged 13 years; Gilly, aged 6 years; and Robert, aged 13 years.. Since Hiram had owned slaves prior to the war, some of these children may have been his former slaves. Hence, this was often a "Near-Slave" condition after the slaves were supposed to have been emancipated. But in the case of these orphans, the new "masters" were required to at least give their "trainees" a basic education, then release them from this indentureship later on. (Info from Jonathan Kennon Thompson Smith.)

Colonel Charles Partee was born in France on 31 Aug 1747, and was brought to America by his parents prior to 1754. Charles Partee grew up in VA and NC. It is not known just what was the service rendered by Charles during the American Revolution. No military service record has been discovered that would prove the claim made on his gravestone "Col. of the Revolutionary War," but he did give enough material or military support to the effort to make his eligible for a grant of 5000 acres of land from the North Carolina government. In 1811 he moved to this land, in Maury Co TN, and became one of the early settlers in the region a few miles west of Columbia, the newly created county seat. Mr. Partee married Barsheba Barringer, evidently in NC, and they proceeded to rear a family of ten children, 5 sons and 4 daughers. When he died, on 18 Dec 1829, he wass relatively wealthy, leaving to his children large estates, slaves and other property. He is buried in his small graveyard on his plantation and it can be supposed that Barsheba rests beside him in an unmarked grave at Partee-Page Cemetery at Carters Creek (walking distance from GPS 35.66, -87.08). The ten children of Charles and Barsheba were-

1.     Abner Partee, b 31 Oct 1772, married Mary Sherman and died 24 Aug 1843. He was buried in Hughes-Zellner Cemetery in Maury Co (GPS 36.6545, -87.0797).

        Luke Cherry [C1a5a], son of Faithfull Cherry and Patience _____, was probably born in the late 1700s, about 1709, in Norfolk Co VA. He received the lion's share (plantation and cooper's tools) in his father's 1727 will, and was the first named child. Therefore, he was likely the eldest son, if not the eldest child. The will, though, stipulated that Luke was to receive this inheritance only after Luke's mother died. Luke was under the age of 21 in July 1727. There was a Luke Cherry in Norfolk Co in 1785. (69,90,28p)


        Luke Cherry [C1a8k4], son of Samuel M Cherry and Mary Moore, was born about 1775 in Pitt Co NC. Luke died at Williamston, Martin Co on 4 July 1811. In his father's 13 May 1813 will, Samuel gave to "son Luke Cherry's heirs ten dollars in cash." In 1800 Luke was living in Pitt Co, and was apparently married to someone born between 1775 and 1784. Because of the ages of his three children in 1800, Luke must have been born about 1775, and married about 1795. And it appears that Luke had moved to Edgecombe Co by 1810. In 1810 he was living next to James Thigpen, John Cobb, and Nathan Stancill. Then Luke had four daughters and a son all under age 10, a daughter aged between 10 and 15, and a wife of about Luke's age; he also owned four slaves in 1810, and was living in Knight's district. Edgecombe Co deed book 12, page 168, and deed book 10, page 507 named his wife as Sarah Hopkins, daughter of Lewis Hopkins. Luke and Sarah married before 14 December 1802 because on that date in the division of the estate of Lewis Hopkins, "Sarah Cherry, wife of Luke Cherry" was named as Lewis' daughter (Edgecombe Co deed book 10, page 507). Luke Cherry was one of the buyers at the December 1807 estate sale of a William Cherry in Edgecombe Co. Luke left a short will in Martin Co (Book 2, page 5), dated 27 June 1811, but it did not name his wife or children; it did indicate, though, that he did have children. Three slaves were named, though: Annie, Isom, and Isaac. "Worthy friends Joel Cherry and Darling Cherry" were named as executors. The will was proven in September 1811. Why his will was recorded in Martin Co when he had lived for years in Edgecombe Co is not known. Perhaps he lived close to the Martin-Edgecombe border, and it was an easier trip to the Martin Co court house. Sarah's youngest son was not listed in the 1815 poll tax (he was not yet age 16), but Sarah was shown to have her father-in-law as her guardian in 1815 (100 acres worth $400, and no slaves). She was not found in the 1820 Edgecombe Co census, so may have remarried or lived with another family. By 1800 Luke had three children, and by 1810 he had seven-

        Lula Cherry [C1a8f5h6d], daughter of Joseph Howard Cherry and Lucinda Mahelen McClish, was born in November 1879 at Tolar, Hood Co TX. She married Luther Edwin Akers in Hood Co on 23 October 1898 and lived in Hood Co. He was born 13 November 1876 on AR. He was a telegraph operator for the railroad in 1918 in Cameron Co.

        Lula Adelia Cherry [unknown], daughter of Robert Cherry and Edna Roberts, was born 17 November 1872 (1869 per 63s) in TN (family bible & death certificate info) (the 1880 Obion Co census had her age as 11). Both her parents were born in TN. Lula married Robert Isaac Hall on 17 November 1886 in Obion Co TN. He may have been Robert Hall, born in TN in 1867, the youngest son of William Hall and Elizabeth _____ of Obion Co. The Robert Hall born in 1867 lived in the same civil district (district #8) near the town of Kenton, as did Lula's family, in 1880. Lula's husband Robert died on 4 June 1907 at Caruthersville, MO, and Lula later married widower John William Whitwaith in Caruthersville on 13 November 1909. They left MO in 1914 and settled in Turner, AR where they are now buried. Lula died on 10 August 1937. She and Robert had six children, and with John had two-

1.     Eisa May Hall, b 30 Aug 1887, died 9 Sep 1906.

2.     Ivory Pearl Hall, b 29 Aug 1890, perhaps in Obion Co TN, died 25 Jan 1973. She married James Riley Dunavan in Pemiscot Co MO, then moved to Phillips Co and Monroe Co AR

        Lulu Cherry [C1a9f4g2c], son of Thomas Glover Cherry and Mary Jane Farmer, was born 31 January 1866, and died as an infant. (77)


        Lunsford Rhodes Cherry [C1a3f2a1], son of Aaron Cherry and Elizabeth Holmes Knight, was born 22 July 1798 in Bertie Co NC. He was single, living in his own home next door to John W Cherry in 1820. Lunsford first married Mildred "Milly" Harry Pittman on 31 March 1826 in Edgecombe Co. Bond was provided by Reddin Pittman. She was born about 1798, daughter of Harrod Pittman and Elizabeth B Rhodes, and died early in September 1829 in Edgecombe Co. On 5 July 1832 Lunsford married Mary George in Edgecombe Co; bond this time was posted by Charles W Knight. Mary was born about 1808 in NC. On 24 September 1835 Lunsford R Cherry gave property to Sally Ann B Harper, Wilson Harper, James R Harper, William B Harper, and David Harper, all children of Bennett Harper. Perhaps the Harper children were related to Lunsford's new wife.

        In 1830 he was living next door to his father, and was still in Edgecombe Co in 1840 through 1860. In 1840 there were four young girls in his household, but the eldest was too old to have been a daughter from either of his marriages; perhaps she was Mary George's young sister (or Mary's daughter from a prior marriage?). Lunsford was called "Major Lunsford R Cherry" in a newspaper article about his marriage. In December 1846 an Elizabeth George died and Lunsford became the trustee for James George; James (Sr?) was the administrator of Elizabeth George's estate. His home in 1860 was two doors from Coffield Knight (age 60). In 1850 a 20 year old Mary Denton was living with Lunsford and Mary. Lunsford died in 1875 and Mary then lived with daughter Josephine at Whitakers, Edgecombe Co. Lunsford had at least eight children-

a.     Oliver Cherry, b 4 Jul 1827

b.     Martha Henry Cherry, b 1828

c.     Sarah Elizabeth Cherry, b 1834

d.     Josephine George Cherry, b 18 Oct 1838

e.     Josephus R Cherry, b 1841

f.     George W Cherry, b 1843

g.     Charles C Cherry, b 1846

h.     Lewis A Cherry, b 1848

In 1860 an Elizabeth Pender, age 64, was living with Lunsford and Mary. Edgecombe marriage records show: a Sally Ann Harper who married John T Worrell on 1 Apr 1852 (or 1855?); William B Harper who married Mary A S Burnes on 6 Aug 1857, and married Elizabeth Purvis on 2 Apr 1861, and married Mary E Bynum on 1 Nov 1866. (82,77,86, 5ijkmnqsz)


        Lura Lee Cherry [C1a6e2h1b7], daughter of Jared W Cherry and Mollie Ann Johnson, was born 8 April 1879 at Kerens, Navarro Co TX. In 1900 she was not yet married and lived with her sister Willie at Kerens. Lura married three times. Her first husband was Lewis Hooyer and she was a widow by 1910, living at Dallas and working as a stenographer.

In 1860 Jane Steward (Sherrod?), age 23, was living with Blount and Margaret. And a Bryan Blount died soon before 8 October 1808 because the Washington Gazette and Weekly Advertiser newspapers ran a story of the hiring out of Negroes on that date which belonged to the estate of the late Blount. Executors were William Gorham and Miles Blount. (57,64,77,82,83,5N,5aejkqp)

She married James L Sanders in Sumter Co on 6 December 1854; both were of age. They were living in Perry Co on 8 August 1871 (Orphan's Record Book 29, page 122, Sumter Co AL). The Livingston Journal newspaper (Sumter Co) of 11 August 1871 named Jarrard's daughter as Margaret I Anderson, wife of Mr B Anderson. Apparently Margaret had married twice, or the newspaper article or the Orphan Record was out of date or in error. (78,77, EC,LJ,22pnq)


        Margret W Cherry [C1a8i3j8i], daughter of William Henry Harrison Cherry and Elizabeth T Manning, was born in 1880 in Warren Co KY. She married Raleigh T Sublett in 1902 in Warren Co. He was born at Hadley, KY on 28 November 1882, son of John Samuel Sublett (18526 KY) and Mary Walds (1864 KY).

        Marguerite "Maggie" S Cherry [C1a6e2h1f10], daughter of John Holland Cherry and Helen Theodocia Johnson, was born 14 September 1888 in Navarro Co TX and was a twin of her sister Callie. Marguerite almost always was known as Maggie. She married Mr C D Allard and in 1961 lived at Dawson, Navarro Co. There is a land title record in Navarro Co which named Maggie Allard; it is confusing, but indicates that Maggie inherited title to almost 93 acres (patent #244) in Robertson district from C D Allard, and on 14 February 1972 her son Wayne Allard was trying to sell or change title to this land. C D Allard was Charles Dowe Allard, born at Ladonia, Fannin Co TX on 13 April 1889, son of George Washington Allard and Martha Jane Linton. Charles grew up in Rains Co, two counties south of Fannin Co. He was a station agent for the Saint Louis & Southwestern Railroad. He and Marguerite married about 1910, soon before the summer census that year, and in June 1917 they lived at Ireland, Coryell Co. In 1920 they were still in Coryell Co. They moved back to Navarro Co in 1927. In the 1930 census, at Dawson, Navarro Co, Maggie was found as Margrette Allard, wife of C D Allard. The 1961 obit of Maggie’s brother Horace named Maggie under her married name as "Maggie Allard," not as Mrs C D Allard, thus indicating that Maggie was already a widow in 1961. Charles had died at Dawson on 1 January 1958 of cancer. Maggie died at Corsicana, Navarro Co on 24 May 1970 of cancer and was buried in Dawson Cemetery with Charles. The informant for her death certificate was her son Wayne. They had seven children, all born in TX; the birth county was probably Coryell for most-

Of all the older Cherry people in Macoupin Co in 1830 and 1840 who were of age to be Martha's parents (born 1818 or before), and had a daughter born in the mid-1820s, there was but one in 1830: Rebecca Crawford, widow of Benjamin Cherry III [C2d1], and in her home in 1830 there was no daughter who was born in the 1820s. The only daughter she had was born between 1811-1815. The 1840 census, though, had three possible parents: Ann Crawford (age 60s, on pg 63), widow of William Cherry, had a daughter born 1826-1830; John Cherry (age 50s, on pg 63), had two daughters born 1821-1825 and one daughter born 1826-1830; James H Cherry (age 40s, on pg 54), had a daughter born 1821-1825 and another daughter born 1826-1830. Of these three, James H Cherry's daughter was Elizabeth B Cherry, born 15 Nov 1824; John Cherry's daughters were Catherine A Cherry, born 1822, Nancy Caroline Cherry, born 1829, and Sarah J Cherry, born 1830.

Hence, these three possible parents were not Martha E L Cherry's parent. (175q,588su) (M,60m, 59m,175q,587s)

Because of their names, the date of the Johnson will, and the name of Mary Cherry's daughter, it would appear that Mary's husband was Eleazer Tart Junr, and his parents were the witnesses in 1721. If Eleazer Senr was a "Senr" by 1721, then his son, the husband of Mary Cherry, must have at least been a young man by 1721. Therefore Eleazer Tart Junr must have been born by 1700, and would have been a few years older than Mary since her father was born in 1670. Mary inherited a Negro boy named Robin and a feather bed. Mary had a daughter-

1.     Sarah Tart, b 1730s? (C,RM,28p)


        Mary Cherry [C1a8b], daughter of Lemuel Cherry and Mary Courtney, was born about 1722 in Norfolk Co VA. She was not married when her father's will was written in July 1754 in Beaufort Co. (4p)


        Mary Cherry [C1a7f1], daughter of Solomon Cherry of Norfolk Co VA, was born in the 1730s in Norfolk Co, or in Bertie Co NC. She married John Jenkins, and died in 1798. They apparently lived in Bertie Co since John Jenkins was found there on tax rosters in 1757, 1769, 1771, and 1783. John Jenkins Sr was living in Bertie Co in 1790. Mary's sister Elizabeth Cherry married Captain Irving Jenkins. (77,NW,WD)


        Mary Cherry [C1a5d4], daughter of Jeremiah Cherry and Mary Ferbee, was perhaps born in the 1740s in Norfolk Co VA. She received bedroom furniture from her father's 1754 will. She was called "Mary Cherry" in her father's will, so was probably yet unmarried in 1754. See the biography of her sister Martha Cherry. (57,28p)


        Mary Cherry [C1a5c1c], daughter of Jesse Cherry and Mary Riddick, was probably born in the 1760s in Tyrrell Co NC. She married Daniel _____. (57)

        Mary Cherry [C1a8p1], daughter of Willis W Cherry of Duplin Co NC, was born about 1768, perhaps in Beaufort Co, or in Duplin Co. She grew up in Duplin Co and married Samuel Bennett there on 17 December 1788. He was of about the same age as Mary. His father was probably Thomas Bennett since Thomas was the only Bennett in the county in 1784, and in 1800 was the only one who was old enough to be Sam's father. There were a few other Bennett families in 1800, but they were of an age to only be Sam's brothers, not parents. In 1810 there was no Samuel Bennett family in the county, nor a Mary/Polly Bennett. Mary and Sam had one girl in 1790, and four children (and three slaves) in 1800-

Thomas Bennett patented 200 acres in Duplin Co on 22 July 1774, land on the north side of Goshen Swamp between Dry Pond branch and White Oak branch, joining Willis Cherry's land (Grant 8343, page 9). Therefore, Thomas Bennett, as the probable father of Samuel Bennett, lived next door to Mary Cherry. (68,108,C,35maehp)

        Mary Cherry [C1a7h6], daughter of Caleb Cherry, was born by the early 1770s in Norfolk Co VA.

Surety was provided by her brother John Cherry. (77,28apm)


        Mary Cherry [C1a8k8], daughter of Samuel M Cherry and Mary Moore, was born about 1782 in Pitt Co NC. She married William Crisp, who died in Edgecombe Co in 1819. In her father's 13 May 1813 will, Samuel named "my daughter Mary Crisp," so she was married by then. Mary's sisters Nancy and Rebecca also married Crisp men. (57,WD)


        Mary Cherry [C1a7f4c], daughter of Solomon Cherry Jr and Mary Eason, was born 12 June 1788 in Bertie Co NC. She married her cousin Solomon Cherry. Her line is continued under his name. (77)

        Mary "Polly" Cherry [C1a5b2c6], daughter of Jesse Cherry and Elizabeth Mayo, was born in the 1790s in Martin Co NC. She married Richard Medford by 1822. Mary's father named his daughter "Polly Medford" in his 24 July 1823 will, which was witnessed by Richard Medford. Jenney Cherry named "well beloved niece Mary Medfort" in Jenney's 23 May 1822 Martin Co will. The 5 January 1833 will of James Medford in Martin Co, proved in January 1834, named children and one grandchild Sally Ann Cherry. One of James' sons was Richard Medford. Who the Sally Ann Cherry was is not known; none of Polly Cherry's brothers married a Medford woman. (91, 1ape)

She was born 12 June 1857 in TN (gravestone date; age 39 in 1900, 52 in 1910, 61 in 1920), daughter of Henry Newcomb and Susie Rushing, and died at home near Trinity on 5 September 1942.

c.     Luella Wallace, b 1863

d.     Elaine C Wallace, b 1864

f.     Avarilla Wallace, b Mar 1870

g.     Henry Austin Wallace, b Oct 1871

h.     Ada Catherine Wallace, b 28 Mar 1875

The children of Jeremiah and Allie were: Jennie Belle Wallace, born 18 Sep 1880; child Wallace, b & d abt 1884; Camelia Wallace, born 1887; Joseph I Wallace, born 1889; Pollie Wallace, born 1891; Nellie Joyce Wallace, born 1895; Dillon Wallace, born 1897; Newell Wallace, born 1898; Lavenia Wallace, born 1903. In the obituary of Alley’s first born, it named "three half brothers" Joe Wallace, of Detroit, MI, Newell and Dillon Wallace of Tharpe, TN, and "two half sisters: Mrs Camelia Herndon of Tharpe, TN, and Mrs Venie Souelle of Vickberg, MS. This would indicate that Jennie was actually a daughter of Jeremiah’s first wife Mary Cherry, and Jennie’s birth date was in 1879 and not 1880 as the obit claims. Jennie was not in the 1880 census, and Jeremiah was already married to Allie in 1880. But Jennie’s obit also said she was a "daughter of the late Jerry and Allie Newberry Wallace." Hence, information given to the newspaper obit editor must have been wrong, and the half siblings named were actually full siblings. The obit of Allie named the same children as hers and were named as half siblings in Jennie’s obit; Jennie was the first daughter named in Allie’s obit. (102,HD, N, 37knmqrsvwc)

        Mary Ann Eliza Cherry [C1a8i3m], daughter of William B Cherry and Frances Taylor, was born in 1810 in Warren Co KY. (Source C says 1816; Warren Co 1840, 1850, 1860, & 1870 census say 1810 for birth date.) She married James Hobson Otey in Warren Co on 25 May 1835. He was born about 1808 (C says 1814), and apparently died in Warren Co in the late 1830s after two children; Mary was the head of her home in 1840 in Warren Co. There were only two Otey families in Warren Co in 1830: Thomas C Otey, born in the 1800s, and James Otey, born in the 1770s. James (Sr) had two sons in his household, born in the 1800s, who could easily be the future husband of Mary Ann Cherry. Also, Thomas C Otey had a second male of about Thomas' age in his home, and no females; they may have been brothers, and they lived close to the elderly James Otey. Therefore, it would appear that Mary Ann Cherry's father-in-law was James Otey Sr. Mary married again, to Benjamin Langford, in Warren Co on 9 December 1843. This was a second marriage for him also. Ben was born in NC in 1795, but lived in KY since at least 1837 since all his children were born in KY. With Ben, Mary had five more children by 1855, to make at least seven. Ben died in the 1850s. In 1860 she and her children were living in her son James' household. In 1870 she and her younger children were living close to her nephew Alford Cherry's sons. Mary's children were-

1.     James Hopson Otey, b 1836 in Warren Co KY. He married Tabitha Hudnall Taylor about 1868. She was born about 1838 in Warren Co, daughter of Joseph Taylor and Sarah M McGown. In 1910 James lived at Stallard Springs, Warren Co, and was a widower then. They had four children by 1880-

        a.     Oscar Otey, b 1869 in Warren Co KY. (57rs)

        b.     Salome Otey, b 1871 in Warren Co KY. (57s)

        c.     Owen(?) Otey, b 1873 in Warren Co KY. (57s)

Amaziah and Mary bought 69 acres three miles south of Collierville on 22 December 1871 from John M Fleming, land bordered on the south and west by the property of John Jarman Jr, father-in-law of Amaziah's daughter Angeline.

        At Collierville Amaziah and a brother joined the Masonic Order, and from the Masonic records we know that on 19 August 1879 Amaziah died at Collierville. He is probably buried in a Collierville cemetery, but by the 1980s there can be found no remains of his grave. Now widowed, Mary moved north to Bells, TN by 1880 with two of her sons and a daughter, but they soon moved east to Savannah where Amaziah's sister Harriet was living. Mary died at Savannah on 7 November 1896 and is likely buried in the Savannah Cemetery in one of the two unmarked graves between her son Jeremiah and his first wife Emma East (daughter Angeline is probably in the other unmarked grave). Mary and Amaziah had eleven children-

There were five Weathersby / Wethersby / Weathersbee families in Martin Co NC in the 1830 to 1850 years; Pitt Co had just one: Robert Weathersby, born in the 1780s and died in the 1830s. His family was living next door to Orman (Henry Ormond) Cherry [C1a9e9b], McGilbra's father, in 1840. John Weathersby was Robert's eldest son. He lived with his widowed mother and six siblings in 1840; one sister was age 5-9. Of the Martin Co Weathersby families, just one had a daughter whose age was between 5 and 9 in 1840: Thomas Weathersby, born in the 1780s, and with a wife born in the 1790s. Thomas Weathersby died in the 1840s.

NOTE: It appears that the spelling of this Weathersby family name has two methods: Weathersby and Weathersbee. During the pre-1860 years it was spelled both ways on census records for the same family, but after about 1860, the family members assumed one or the other spelling, although all were originally of the samy family. In these Cherry biographies, the Weathersby spelling is used, even though there are gravestones in Martin and Pitt Counties with both spellings. (W,1jksuc, 7jknqrc)


        Melanie Cherry [C1a8c1f3a2], daughter of Columbus Franklin Cherry and Mary Elizabeth Allen, was born in 1873 in Fresno Co CA.

The cemetery plot between to Sterling and his mother in 1908 was (and still was, in 1996) owned by someone named M T Cherry. This could be Melanie. Melanie was probably alive in 1910 because her mother stated in the census that of her twelve children, only seven were then living. Nothing has been found of Melanie after 1880, other than the cemetery records of an "M. T. Cherry." (79csv)

(64s,26m,313u,632xc)


        Mercer Cherry [C1a8f1], son of Charles Cherry and Winifred Mercer, was probably born about 1767 in Beaufort Co NC. He was the head of his own home in the 1790 census, so by then must have been in his early 20s. Mercer was alone in his home in 1810, so his wife was probably already dead. Since he probably had a daughter, born in 1805, she must have been living with a female relative. It appears that Mercer lived his whole life in Beaufort Co. He left his will there dated 5 July 1838, which was probated the following September. In it he named Jeremiah R Cherry as his executor (as did many other Cherry wills). Mercer left his estate to "Patsey Brown and her children now born being 3 in number." Witnesses to the will were N R(?) Brown and Henry C Hoyt. Since Mercer had no sister named Patsy, nor any sister married to a Mr Brown, Patsy was probably Mercer's daughter-

a.     Patsy Cherry, b 1805 (87,4apein)


        Mercer Cherry [C1a8f4i], son of Charles Cherry Jr and Rosannah R Yarrell, was born in 1817 in Montgomery Co TN. He married Elizabeth Hill. She was born in 1826 in VA, daughter of John Tilden Hill (1787-1853) and Elizabeth Ely (1797-1832). In 1850 Mercer was still living in Montgomery Co with his wife and children, and his mother was living with them. They were not found in TN after 1850. On 24 February 1848 in Montgomery Co, Mercer provided the marriage bond for Aquilla Grant and Mariah L Cherry. On 22 February 1851 John Tilden Hill of Montgoemry Co wrote his will and in it he named "the two Children of Mercer Cherry Mary & Eliza Cherry my Negro Girl Dorthula." John T Hill made a codicil in 1853 in which he revoked "the bequest of the slave Dorthula to the Children of Mercer Cherry & do hereby bequeath & will the sd Negro Dorthula to the female Children of my daughter Thetus." By 1850 Mercer and Elizabeth had two daughters, both born in Montgomery Co-

1.     Mary Edwina Cherry, b 1848 in Montgomery Co TN. In February 1858 Rosannah Cherry gave personal property and 46 acres in trust to her grand-daughter, Mary Edwina Cherry, also to son Charles Cherry, daughter Ruth Oldham, daughter Louisa Lowery, son Jeremiah Cherry, and grand-daughter Catherine Thomas. Why granddaughter Anita Cherry, Mary Edwina's sister, received nothing is not known, unless she had died soon after June 1850. (77,80,40np)

2.     Anita Eliza Cherry, b 1849, probably died after February 1851, but before February 1858. (40np) (77,80,40ijkn)

She was named in her father's September 1812 as "Milley Cherry," not under a married name. She also was not living with her parents in 1800, so perhaps had married by the summer of 1800.

        Mollie Cherry [C1a8c1d2], daughter of Eli Cherry and Nancy Wheatley, was born in 1802, probably in Martin Co TN. She married _____ Franks. Mary Cherry married Ambrose Ellidge in Davidson Co on 3 June 1830. There was a marriage in Hardin Co TN between Henry T Franks and a Mollie Cherry [unknown] on 18 February 1896. This Hardin Co couple had an unnames son who was born and died in 1897 and was buried in Cherry Chapel West Cemetery next to a brother, Glen Kirkland Franks, born 23 March 1908 and died on 29 April 1917. (77,92,9M)

The plot was owned by "Mrs. Dustin," no doubt Morgan's sister, and the funeral bills were paid by his sister "Mrs Henry Rodgers" of Sanger. Morgan was mentally retarded, and had no children. In 1900 through 1920 he was living with his mother at or near Selma, and could neither read nor write at age 18. There was a state hospital for the retarded in Sonoma Co in 1920; perhaps this is where Morgan was when he died. (MD, LD,JY,79uvwfc)


        Morris Fox Cherry Jr [C1a6e2h1f16a], son of Morris Fox Cherry and Margaret Patton, was born in 1922 in Navarro Co TX. In 2005 he lived at Virginia Beach VA. Morris had married Pat _____. (403N,382f)


        Morris Fox Cherry [C1a6e2h1f16], son of John Holland Cherry and Helen Theodocia Johnson, was born 14 April 1900 in Navarro Co TX, and lived there with his brother Horace in 1910. In 1920 he lived with his great aunt Kitty Cherry at Corsicana. He married Margaret Patton from Navarro Co in 1920. She was born 9 December 1900 at Corsicana, Navarro Co, daughter of Emerson G Patton and Lenora A Newton, and died 4 May 1999 at Houston. Morris and Margaret divorced in the 1920s and she lived with her sister Jewel Patton (Mrs Harry J Prine) at Wichita Falls, TX in 1930. Margaret later married Les Myers.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Les Myers. Survivors include a son, Jack Cherry of Houston, and three grandchildren."
        Morris remarried with Thelma Jessie Ashmore. She was born at Corsicana, Navarro Co in 1900, daughter of Jesse James Ashmore and Minnie Bragg. An obit for Thelma’s brother Jack stated that Thomas Jackson "Jack" Ashmore died on 15 January 1930, and had a sister "Thelma Cherry of Corsicana." Morris and Margaret had two sons-

a.     Morris Fox Cherry Jr, b 1922

b.     Jack Sanders Cherry, b 30 Aug 1924 (M,W, 382Nuvwf, 403f)


        Mosella Dearborn Cherry [C1a8c1h9], daughter of Daniel Cherry and Sarah Turner, was born 11 July 1827 in Haywood Co TN. She married Hiram A Partee on 24 August 1844. He was born in 1823 (age 37 in 1860 census) in NC, and was a nephew of the Hiram Partee who married Mosella's sister Louanna. In 1860 they were living in Haywood Co with their children, but not in 1870. In 1860 Mosella's mother was also living with them. Mosella died on 22 December 1882 at her son's home in Little Rock, AR and is buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Memphis. Hiram was buried near Mosella in Elmwood Cemetery. Her five children were-

a.     Katie Partee, b 1846

b.     Sallie C Partee, b 1849

c.     Noah Partee, b 1851

d.     Hiram A Partee Jr, b 1854, lived at Little Rock, AR in 1882. (77)

e.     Emma Partee, b 1859

See Louanna T Cherry, Mosella's sister, and the Partee family outline on page 574. Louanna's husband died in 1874 and was buried at Ripley, TN. (125,57,69,77,114,29q)


        Moses Cherry [unknown], of Boone Co KY, left a will there in 1810: Book A, page 72. It was probably the same Moses who camped at Ash Emison's spring (shown as site No 1 on original land patents of early KY) in April 1776, about four miles north of McClelland's Fort. This camp came to be Emison's Station in some early histories. Since others in Moses' party were from PA, and since Boone Co is at the north side of KY, next to the Ohio River, Moses also probably came from PA. The Ohio was the main route used by settlers to KY from PA.


        Myra Crayton Cherry [C1a7d4c1e6], daughter of Harrison Wayne Cherry and Julia America Crayton Cherry, was born 30 January 1886, and died on 24 April 1886. (77)


        Myron Lee Cherry [C1a6e4h2b8a], son of Nelson Clement Cherry and Irma Henrietta Gerson, was born in 1949. In the 1980s he was living in Centerville TN. (EC)


        Myrtle W Cherry [C1a6b2a2c12f], daughter of George Washington Cherry and Mary Parthenia Self, was born 10 March 1875 (per census; 1878 per gravestone) in Stewart Co TN. She married William Henry Galusha in Stewart Co on 13 December 1900. He was born 7 November 1870, and died 24 May 1953. They were buried in Cherry Cemetery in Stewart Co. (77,37umc)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a8k3], daughter of Samuel M Cherry and Mary Moore, was born about 1770 in Pitt Co NC. In her father's 13 May 1813 will, Samuel named "my daughter Nancey Crisp," so she was married by then (Nancy's sisters Mary and Rebecca also married Crisp men). Nancy’s husband may have been Jesse William Crisp (William Crisp, per WD), son of Samuel Crisp. Daughters of Samuel Cherry, Sarah, Elizabeth, and Nancy, in a February 1816 Edgecombe Co will petition contesting their father’s will, Nancy was named as "wife of William Crisp." Jesse Crisp's 30 December 1829 will in Edgecombe Co (Book F, page 129) stated "Having sometime ago given away all my property but a remnant," gave the remnant to his son Spier (he received a Negro named Bristow), daughter Eleanor Bennett's heirs (the heirs were not named, but they received a Negro girl), daughter Nancy Bennett of TN. His will did not name wife Nancy, nor son John W Crisp, but John was named as a witness. Jesse died in or soon before August 1831 in Edgecombe Co, and Nancy died before 1829. Her children were-

a.     Spier Crisp, witnessed his grandfather Samuel Crisp's will on 10 June 1829, so was likely born by 1800. (5p)

b.     Eleanor Crisp, married _____ Bennett, and died by 1829. She probably had children. (WD,5p)

c.     Nancy Crisp, married _____ Bennett and lived in TN in 1829. (WD)

d.     John W Crisp, witnessed his grandfather Samuel Crisp's will on 10 June 1829, so was likely born by 1800. John was also a witness of Jesse Crisp's December 1829 will. (5p) (57,WD,5p)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a5e9], daughter of Job Cherry and Abiah Ventures, was born about 1774 in Martin Co or in Tyrrell Co NC. She was not named in her father's February 1811 will. (69,C,1p)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a5c4a], daughter of Joel Cherry and perhaps Lydia _____, was living with her family in 1790 and 1800, but was married by 1810 and had children by 1816. Therefore she must have been born in the late 1780s, probably in Martin Co NC. (68,91, 1aeh)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a8p8], daughter of Willis W Cherry and Sarah _____ of Duplin Co NC, was born about 1790 (about 1772 per L) in Duplin Co. She was not shown as a child in the state census of 1784. In 1850 she was Nancy Young, age 60 and born in NC, and was the last person listed in the Duncan Cherry household. Duncan was probably a son of Lemuel Cherry, Nancy's brother, who lived two doors from Lemuel. And living with Lemuel in 1850 was Elender Young, age 50. Perhaps she was an in-law of Nancy. Nancy was not shown living with her mother in 1810, so had probably married a Mr Young near the end of the 1800s, possibly between 1807 and 1810. (68,C,35aehnp)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a8c1n], daughter of Jesse Cherry and Elizabeth Gainer, was born about 1794 in Martin Co NC. She was married two times: the first was to Cornelius Buck, and the second time to John H Halliburton about 1835. Cornelius was born in 1780 in Pitt Co. He and Nancy moved to TN about 1808 after their daughter Frances was born (daughter Caroline was born in TN), and lived in Haywood Co in November 1827 because they sold 200 acres there at that time. Cornelius died in the early 1830s in Haywood Co and John died before 1850, probably in Haywood Co. Nancy was still living in Haywood Co in 1850 (age 56), with her son Poleman and her two youngest daughters. Nancy died in 1852; her 13 children were-

1.     Frances Buck, b 18 Sep 1807

2.     Caroline Buck, b 10 Dec 1809

3.     Franklin Buck, b 13 Aug 1812

4.     Henry Buck, b 15 Mar 1815

5.     Adlean Buck, b 16 Jan 1817

6.     Churchwell C Buck, b 1 Oct 1819

7.     Juritha Buck, b 10 Oct 1822

8.     Humphry Buck, b 25 Mar 1824

9.     Poleman Buck, b 16 Mar 1826

10.   Robert Buck, b 9 Apr 1829

11.   Albert C Buck, b 9 Apr 1829

12.   Cornelia Ann Buck, b 17 Mar 1834

13.   Elizabeth Halliburton, b abt 1836

John Halliburton apparently had a child born about 1836, probably from a marriage before he married Nancy, or else Nancy and John married about 1835. (57,69,77,1e, 29jq,44q)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a8i3f], daughter of William B Cherry and Lottie Hopkins, was born in 1796 in Edgecombe, NC. She married James Hill in Warren Co KY on 12 December 1817. He was born about 1792 in Warren Co KY, and apparently died in 1830 because there is an 1830 will for a James Hill in Warren Co. There were about five Hill men in Warren Co in 1840 who could have been sons: Joseph, Elijah, Presley, and Westin Hill. (C,57hm)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a7f4g], daughter of Solomon Cherry Jr and Mary Eason, was born about 1798 in Bertie Co NC, and died on 5 July 1867. She married Julian Askew. He died by 1847. In 1860 Nancy was a farmer, owned a small farm, and Sarah A Carter, age 41, was living with Nancy in Bertie Co. (77,6hq).


        Nancy Cherry [C1a5e4g], daughter of Jeremiah Cherry and Mary Price, was born on 24 November 1802 in Martin Co NC. She grew up in Columbia, TN, and married Thomas Keef there on 4 July 1829. Samuel Keef was the bondsman for the marriage. Thomas was born 20 September 1804. He and Nancy were attacked in their home on 10 November 1840 by Rufus K Polk and George W Polk, who were prosecuted for this crime. Thomas may have been a carpenter because on 11 June 1832 William Cole, age 10, was bound to Thomas Keef to learn to be a carpenter (Maury Court minutes, book 12, page 184). Thomas died on 24 August 1856, and Nancy died 6 September 1871. They lived in Columbia in April 1852, so he likely died there, although they were not found in the county on any census after their marriage. Both are buried in Greenwood Cemetery on the north edge of Columbia. In the 1860 census there was a woman named Elvira N Guest living with Nancy. Elvira was born on 22 November 1822 in TN, so may have been a daughter from a prior marriage of Thomas (or an unidentified daughter of Nancy's sister Mary, who married Joshua Guest?). (53,55, 61,72,91,N, 10mjknq)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a8c1d9], daughter of Eli Cherry and Nancy Wheatley, was born in 1820, probably in Davidson Co TN, and died in 1837 or 1838. (77,RM)


        Nancy Cherry [C2d1c8], daughter of Elijah Cherry and Jenny Chaddock, was born about 1828 in Overton Co TN, and died after 1880. (77,76j,75k)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a3f6e6], daughter of John M Cherry and Elizabeth Wingate, was born in 1839 in Henderson Co TN. She was not living with her widowed mother in Henderson Co in 1860, so may have married by the summer of 1860, or died. In any case, she was living with her parents in 1850 in Henderson Co. (77, 24kn)


        Nancy Cherry [C1a5b1b1c5], daughter of Willis Cherry and Emily L Perry, was born in 1845 in Beaufort Co NC. (77,4nq)

        Nathan Cherry [C1a7d4c2c3c8a], is a son of Garnette Mark Cherry and Ruth Copas. (77)


        Nathaniel Cherry [unknown] of Pitt Co NC, son of William Cherry, but actually may be a brother. Nathan was on the county tax roster of 1764, thus indicating that he was born by about 1748, but probably sooner. Nathan bought 100 acres from Solomon Whichard for £13 on 4 January 1773 (Book E page 157). Therefore Nathan was probably born by 1748. On 22 February 1779 "Nathan Cherry, cooper" sold that land to "William Kinsaul, waterman" (boatman), for £107 (Book H page 17). The next month "Nathan Cherry, cooper" bought 200 acres from John Hodges for £600 (Book H page 26). This 200 acres was formerly owned by Ebenezer Folsom. This was the last deed record concerning Nathan for nine years, so apparently Nathan called this 200 acres his home. In 1786 he was listed in the state census living five doors from Lazarus Cherry, and had in his household one male age 16 to 60 (Nathan), two boys under age 16, one female over the age of 60 (mother or mother-in-law?) and two girls under age 16. Women from the ages of 16 to 60 were not listed, so there is no indication that Nathan had a wife then. He had no slaves. His close neighbor three doors away, was Hillery Cason. Nathan bought a Negro in Pitt Co on 4 February 1788 from Thomas Blackledge for £190 (book M, page 213). And on 5 August 1794 Godfrey Williams of Beaufort Co sold a Negro to Nathan Cherry of Pitt Co for £105 (book N, page 253). Nathan bought other slaves also: 18 March 1796 from Colson Adams (book N, page 428); 24 October 1796 from William Cason (book N, page 429); 25 October 1796 from Samuel Simpson (book N, page 429). These last three totalled £725, and witnesses were Thomas Daniel, James Barrow, Hillary Cherry, Matthias Moore Jr, and Adam Albritton. (Nathan was not a poor man.) This made five slaves belonging to Nathan. In January 1799 Joseph Moore and wife Clotilla Moore sold a negro to Hillary Cherry for £60. This was witnessed by Josiah Cherry and Nathan Cherry.

        In Pitt Co in the 1790 Federal census Nathan lived not too far from John Cherry, son of Samuel. In Nathan's household there were two males over the age of 16, and three females; he had one slave. Some of his close neighbors were Colson Adams and William Cason. In 1800 Nathan was living close to Hillary Cherry and John Cherry, and had no children in his household; he did have two slaves (Hillary had three). In 1810 Nathan was still close to Hillary Cherry, and had only a wife living with him.

        Since Nathan apparently had a son named Hillary, and there was a trusted William Cason as a witnesses to his slave purchases, and since Hillery Cason lived two doors from Nathan in 1786, it would be reasonable to assume that Nathan married Ms _____ Cason, daughter of Hillery Cason and brother of William Cason who witnessed a slave purchase.

        Nathan's children were probably-

1.     dau Cherry, born 1770-1786

2.     son (Hillary?) Cherry, born 1770-1786 (1756-1774)

3.     dau Cherry, born 1770-1786

4.     son (Josiah?) Cherry, born 1770-1786 (1775-1784)

Conjecture: Sometime soon before 1800 sons Hillary and Joshua left home and settled together nearby. As they moved, Nathan gave each a slave, leaving Nathan with two. And since Hillary bought a slave in 1799, this would make three slaves on his land in 1800, including Joshua's. (JY)

The Lazarus Cherry household near Nathan in 1786 had one male over age 60, one male between age 16 and 60, and three females over age 60. (68,7aehzt)


        Nehemiah W Cherry [C1a6b2a2e], son of William W Cherry and Lydia Minerva McDaniel of Stewart Co TN, was born in 1806 in Martin Co NC (age was 31 in 1860, 64 in 1870). He grew up in Stewart Co and married Frances _____. After she abandoned him about 1825, Nehemiah petitioned for a divorce in September 1827 and he soon afterwards married Ann Griffin. He lived for a few years in Robertson Co. Annie Griffin was born in NC in 1803. She and Nehemiah were living in Stewart Co in 1840 through 1860; in 1840 Nehemiah lived next door to his father, and close to his brother William; in 1860 Nehemiah and his girlfriend / housekeeper Mary Rogers (age 32) were living (family #279) next to his son William. In another nearby household (family #284) was "Nathan Cherry" and wife Ann. Ann was born in NC in 1795; Nathan was born in NC in 1805. Also in their household was "Mary Rogers," age 28. Ann died in the 1860s, and Nemiah and Mary finally married on 2 December 1867 in Stewart Co. In 1870 Nehemiah and Mary were still living next door to William. Mary was born in TN about 1828 (age 32 in 1860, 38 in 1870, 56 in 1880). Nehemiah died in Stewart Co in the 1870s, and in 1880 Mary and her two youingest sons lived next door to Nehemiah's son William Norman Cherry. Nehemiah and Annie had at least three children; with Mary he had four-

1.     William Norman Cherry, b 28 Feb 1828

2.     Wade Hampton Cherry, b 1830

3.     James Jeremiah Cherry, b 1832

4      Abbot Cherry, b 1855 in Stewart Co, son of Nehemiah Cherry and Mary Rogers.

5.     Edwin Cherry, b 1858 in Stewart Co, son of Nehemiah Cherry and Mary Rogers.

6.     Jefferson Davis Cherry, b 28 Aug 1861

7.     Albert V Cherry, b 2 Feb 1865

Stewart Co bond records show that on 25 August 1858 "Mary A Rogers and Nehemiah Cherry" bound themselves to the county to provide for the "bastard child of said Mary Rogers." Mary and Nehemiah had a son Abbot, born in 1855 in TN, who lived with them in 1860 and was using the Cherry family name. Mary Rogers, age 28, was also listed in 1860 in the Nathan Cherry household, just a few doors from Nehemiah Cherry. This may have been Nehemiah Cherry because his age was 55; Ann, age 65, was his wife. Perhaps the census taker made no mistakes with this family in 1860, and Nehemiah had an unknown son named Nehemiah Jr, born in 1829, and reserarchers for years have been mixing up Nehemiah Sr's children with Jr's children.
