        William Cherry [unknown] of Luston, England sailed from the port of Bristol to the Virginia Colony as an indentured servant between 1654 and 1663. (100)


        William Cherry [C1a6], son of John Cherry Jr and Rebecca Maund, was born about 1680 in Lower Norfolk Co VA. He married Elizabeth Tart (daughter or sister of Eleazer Tart who married Mary Cherry?). William received a land patent with Eleazer Tart on 5 September 1723 in Norfolk Co of 80 acres in Cyprus Swamp near the head of Western Branch. He was on a 10 June 1730 tithable list of Norfolk Co: on the Southern Branch was William Cherry Sr, and sons Solomon and Willis. William Sr left a will in Lower Norfolk Co dated 22 March 1735 (Book 1, page 22). It was proven on 20 May 1737, so William died in April or May that year. His will was witnessed by Solomon Cherry and Joseph Cherry, no doubt his brothers. William could not write. He named his wife and seven or eight children-

a.     Alice Cherry, b 1700s

b.     John Cherry, b abt 1705

c.     Willis Cherry, b 1708

d.     William Cherry, b 1710

e.     Rebecca Elizabeth Cherry, b 1710

f.     Solomon Cherry, b abt 1713

g.     Eleazer Cherry, b 1715

h.     Caleb Cherry, b 1720

It is not known whether sons William and Willis are the same person. (WD,PA,28apm)


        William Cherry Jr [C1a6d], son of William Cherry and Elizabeth Tart of Norfolk Co VA, was born about 1710 in Norfolk Co. He married Elizabeth Manning, daughter of John Manning Jr and Ann Deal, and they probably had two sons. The will of John Manning Jr of the late 1750s in Norfolk Co VA named his daughter Elizabeth Cherry and two grandsons: "... gives to my grandson, Lemuel Cherry, the above mentioned Negro named Jack, and to my grandson, Seth, the above mentioned Negro named George ... ". Perhaps grandfather John Manning only named two sons of Elizabeth because those were the only ones she had, and other sons of William Cherry were from a prior marriage. Also, tithable records list other children besides Seth and Lemuel. They were-

1.     William Cherry, b bef 1750

2.     Samuel Cherry, b bef 1750

3.     Reuben Cherry, b bef 1750

4.     Lemuel Cherry, b 1750

        William Cherry [C1a8e], son of Lemuel Cherry and Mary Courtney, was born about 1728 in Norfolk Co VA. He received 400 acres on Beaverdam from his father's July 1754 will, and a Negro named Sutton. William married Sarah Pearson, daughter of Moses Pearson and Sarah _____. Will may have died in Craven Co NC (per WD). Craven Co is on the southeast border of Pitt Co. A deed dated 11 November 1760 was recorded in Beaufort Co NC from William Cherry of Craven Co to John Cherry of Beaufort Co for 400 acres on the north side of Moye's Beaver Dam for £8, land originally patented to Lemuel Cherry on 20 April 1745. William purchased 200 acres on the Pee Dee River in Craven Co from Mary Charnock on 20 July 1764. This land was later sold to his brother-in-law Aaron Pearson on 18 April 1770. William owned land in Dobbs, Pitt, and Beaufort Counties, NC. He was a merchant and a planter.

        According to Source 77, William's also married Elizabeth Stewart, but Sarah was the mother of his seven known children-

1.     George Cherry, b early 1760s, married Susannah McTear, a widow, and died in 1798 in Marlboro district, SC. His children, from his will, were-

        a.     George Cherry Jr, b 1785-1794, probably in Pitt Co where he was living in 1810. Soon before 1810 he had married someone of about the same age, and they had a son-

        William Cherry [C1a4f], son of Thomas Cherry and Sarah Willson, was born about 1720 in Norfolk Co VA, and was baptized in Norfolk Co. On 17 April 1748 he was named in his father's will. William inherited "the plantation where he now lives on being seventy five acres" plus the remaining half of the 125 acres given to his brother Jeremiah. Therefore William was probably an adult at the time of the will. He made his will in 1737, and died about 1748. He had a son-

1.     William Cherry, b 1740s? (77,C,RM,28p)


        William Cherry [C2a], son of Benjamin Cherry of Ireland, was probably born in Ireland in the 1730s, by 1740. He became a professional soldier fighting in the French & Indian Wars, then in the Revolution, and later in Mexico. Many of his descendants settled in and around Dallas, TX. (FC)


        William Cherry [C1a7d1], son of William Cherry and perhaps Elizabeth Manning, was probably born in the 1740s in Norfolk Co VA. (77,NW)


        William Cherry [C1a5f1], son of William Cherry of Norfolk Co VA, was probably born in the middle of the 18th Century in Norfolk Co. (77,C, RM)


        William Cherry [C1a8h2], son of Cader Cherry and perhaps Judith Burnett, was probably born in the 1750s or 1760s in Beaufort Co or in Pitt Co NC. (57,86,WD,4p)


        William Cherry [C1a5d7], son of Jeremiah Cherry and Mary Ferbee, was not named in his father's February 1754 will, and since his father died late that year without ever making a codicil in the will for William, William must have been born in 1755 in Norfolk Co VA after his father's death. William lived in Norfolk Co in 1785. (57,28a)


        William Cherry [C1a6f7], son of Solomon Cherry and Sarah Eley, was born about 1759 in Bertie Co NC. He married Susannah _____ about 1778; she was born in 1758. He was named in Bertie Co's tax roster in 1774 and in 1781. William witnessed the marriage in Bertie Co between Jesse Collins and Sarah Keen on 18 May 1802. William left his will in Bertie Co dated 18 December 1802, and it was proven there in February 1803 (or 1808?). He named his wife Susannah _____, and sons and daughters. Susannah was still living in Bertie Co in 1810. She made her will in Bertie Co on 5 March 1813 and died in April or May the following year. In this will she named her daughter Elizabeth Baker. The executors of William's estate were his son William, and his brother Solomon Cherry. William's children were-

a.     William Cherry Jr, b abt 1779

b.     Elizabeth Cherry, b abt 1780

c.     Solomon Cherry, b abt 1781

d.     Wiley Cherry, b abt 1783

        William Cherry [unknown], of Edgecombe Co NC, left an estate which was opened on 22 February 1808 in Edgecombe Co; Micajah Mayo was the administrator. Buyers at the estate were Susannah Cherry, Samuel Cherry, Roderick Cherry, Willis Cherry, Solomon Cherry, and Luke Cherry. Of these buyers, Luke and Roderick were brothers; who Susannah was is not known. Perhaps she was the wife / widow of a brother, a possible second wife of William, or a sister. Willis was a son of Henry Cherry Jr of Beaufort Co. Solomon Cherry was a brother of Samuel, and died within a year. (86, JY,WD)


        William Cherry [C1a8f5], son of Charles Cherry and Winifred Mercer, was born about 1772 in NC. William moved to Montgomery Co TN about 1808; his brother Charles Cherry Jr [C1a8f4] had moved there about this time. In 1809, William Cherry "of Montgomery County," bought 320 acres in Stewart Co. He was taxed for his land in 1809, 340 acres in Capt Ross’ District on Caney Fork of Saline Creek. Some of this land purchase was next to Benjamin Shepherd’s 1,000 acres.

        William was one of the earliest Stewart Co sheriffs. There were actually two early William Cherry men who held these sheriff / constable jobs. The first record was on 5 May 1812 when "William Cherry" (and others) posted bonds to be sheriffs. In 1819 & 1820 William Cherry was constable for the town of Dover.

      On 15 January 1821, Henry Pugh, agent for Whitmill Pugh of Louisiana, sold to William Cherry two tracts of 80 acres each on the south side of Lick Creek for $500, parts of grants #9707 & #9708; witnesses were Emanuel James and James Miller. Lick Creek is the stream just east of Dover about a mile; it flows north into the Cumberland River, and is actually a wide bay just east of Dover. But it’s southern end is an actual creek, and runs roughly southwest to north-east into the south end of the bay portion of Lick Creek. William’s new acre purchase must have been on the south side of the creek, very close to his home. This land purchase was about 1.2 miles southeast of Dover.

        On 13 March 1838 William B Cherry Sr was sheriff. He held this title to 1846. On 6 April 1840 William B Cherry posted a constable bond for Districts 10 & 11; on 5 February 1821 William Cherry was elected constable for Captain Bailey’s company. Since there were two William Cherry men in Stewart Co during these pre-1830 years – the other was distant cousin William W Cherry who always used his middle initial W – then the sheriff / constable must have been the one married to Polly. The William B Cherry sheriff / constable of a generation later was a son of William and Polly.

        William married Polly ____ in the late 1790s or early 1800s. She was born in the 1780s. Because William’s eldest child was born in 1792, Polly was probably a second wife. In 1820 he was the "Wm Cherry" who was on census page 112. William wrote his will on 12 May 1826 and died in Stewart Co on 14 October 1826 at his home on Lick Creek. He was buried in Greenwood Cemetery at Clarksville in Montgomery Co. Settlement of his estate took about two years. His will is shown below. He named: "my wife" (no name); she received the 60 acre tract on the west side of Lick Creek where she now lives, one horse, one plow and grain, one milk cow and calf, and one bed and furniture; "my daughter Nica Hickson" received One Dollar; "the balance of my estate to be equally devided between my children" (children not named, other than Nica Hickson). Executors named were Thomas Dodd and Lemuel Cherry. William could not sign his name, but made his mark. The will was entered into probate in August 1826, after some of his assetts were sold at public auction in June 1826.

        Polly was still in Stewart Co in 1830 and 1840; in 1840 (page 339) she was close to Joel Biggs. Joel Biggs’ father John Biggs was from Martin Co NC and lived close to the elder of the two William Cherry men in 1820 (Polly’s husband). We cannot tell who widow Polly’s neighbors were in 1830 since the census taker alphabeticalized the names. But since the 1820 census showed the elder of the two William Cherry men living close to John Biggs, then we can assume that was the husband of Polly living close to Joel Biggs in 1840. Joel was the executor for the John Biggs estate, Joe’s father’s. In 1840 there were two young adults and two children living with Polly. A deed record of 12 November 1829 placed where the younger William W Cherry lived ("on N. side of Cumberland River). Since Polly’s husband was a constable for the town of Dover in the 1819-1820 years, then he likely lived at Dover or close by. Dover is on the south side of the Cumberland River about where the river bends northward near the western edge of Stewart Co.

        In 1840 in Mary’s home (she was Polly Cherry in 1840)., there was an adult child and spouse, plus a grandson age 5-9. The male (son-in-law?) was age 30s,and the female (daughter?) was age 20s.

        William and Polly had five children, but William probably had more from a first marriage. The children shown here have ages that agree with the 1820 and 1830 census records, and if they lived to 1850, these ages / birth years below also agree with the 1850 census-

a.     Lucinda Cherry, b 1792 (married by 1820)

b.     Vicey Cherry, b 1800 (married by 1820)

c.     dau Cherry, b abt 1803 (age 16-25 in 1820), married Thomas Dodd (Lemuel G Cherry married Delilah A Dodd, sister of Thomas Dodd), and died between 1842 and 1850. Thomas was living in Greene Co TN's 9th Division East in 1850, and was born in TN in 1799. He was a farmer. Their six children were all born in TN-

        1.     William C Dodd, b 1830

        2.     John P Dodd, b 1832

        3.     Jacob Dodd, b 1835

        4.     Mary Dodd, b 1837

        5.     McKendry Dodd, b 1840

        6.     Richard W Dodd, b 1842

       Greene Co is at the eastern edge of TN, next to NC. Most of the other siblings of Thomas' wife lived in the Stewart-to-Sumner Co area of west-central TN where her father lived. The earliest marriage records from Montgomery Co start in 1838. (HD,JY, 51n)

d.     Lemuel G Cherry, b 1805 (age 10-15 in 1820, 45 in 1850). He had his own home in 1830. (37ij)

e.     William B Cherry, b 21 Jan 1808

f.     Narcissa Cherry, b 1809 (age under 10 in 1820)

g.     Eli J Cherry, b abt 1817 (age under 10 in 1820, 10-14 in 1830, died late 1840s)

h.     Henry G Cherry, b 1820 (age under 10 in 1820, 10-14 in 1830, was still at home in 1830, but had his on home in 1840)

i.      son Cherry, b 1821-1825, age 15-19 in 1840 (he could have been a grandson). (37jk)

        In 1808, this part of TN was wilderness with mountain lions and bear; there were no decent roads to take families and many heavy supplies from NC to this part of TN. Hence, it was likely that William and his brother Charles Jr traveled with their families and a minium of supplies by wagon train to the Cumberland River in southeast KY. Then via the Cumberland River they could go west to the Stewart-Montgomery County area of (then) western TN. Once there, and after they set up homesteads, they could use the Tennessee River or Cumberland River to go north to Paducah, KY and further upriver eastward along the Ohio River to get other supplies at Owensboro in northern Hardin Co KY. The Cumberland River flows east to west, weaving between the KY-TN border; it passes through Montgomery Co TN and once in southeast Stewart Co TN, it heads north and ties into the northbound Tennessee River passing through western KY.

John Biggs, from Martin Co NC, was born 11 Oct 1772 in NC, and died in 1837 in Stewart Co TN.

        The other of the two pioneer William Cherry men of Stewart Co, William W Cherry [C1a6b2a2], was a Baptist Church member. See the Skewarkey Church notes on page 882 following his biography.

        In Stewart Co in 1831 there were eight Cherry people listed on an 1831 tax roster: Mary Cherry, owned 100 acres on Lick Creek (widow of William); William B Cherry with one Black person; Lemuel Cherry; William W Cherry, owned 66 acres along Dryers & Saline Creeks; Nehemiah Cherry; David Cherry, owned 30 acres; Charles Cherry, owned 333 acres in Capt Martain's District; William H Cherry, owned 40 acres along Dryers Creek in Capt Hogan's District. In 1832 another Cherry was added to the Tax list: Henry E Cherry who owned 100 acres. In 1833 Daniel Cherry first appeared on the county’s tax roster, owning 51 acres. The next name added to the tax list was in 1838: James N Cherry in District 3. The 1838 listing had four William Cherry men: William N with 100 acres and William N again with 155 acres, William W with 100 acres, and William B with 295 acres. The 1841 tax list added Albert Cherry and T J Cherry. H G Cherry was shown for the first time on the 1842 tax roster. In 1847 Benjamin Cherry with 40 acres was added, and there was now James M Cherry in District 4, plus J M Cherry Sr, and Jas H Cherry. Bradley Cherry was added in 1848. Also in 1847 to 1851 W B Cherry was responsible for the taxable properties of the heirs of W H West. W B Cherry was the administrator or executor of the West estate, and guardian of the West heirs. The West estate owned 266 acres in District 5. Henry G Cherry was shown in the 1849 roster.

        Most marriage Records for Stewart Co TN do not exist prior to the Civil War; the court house burned during that war. Note that it was not always the Union soldiers who burned Southern court houses during the war. There have been documented cases where the court house was set fire before the Union Army reached town, and all court house records for pending crimimnal cases were burned. Hence, locals in jail could not be prosecuted without damaging evidence for their court trials.

        W B Cherry was responsible for the taxable properties of the heirs of W H West. W B Cherry was daughter The Cumberland Presbyterians effected an organization in Stewart County in about 1812 or 1814, yet churches were not built until a later day. Probably the first meetings of any congregations of this denomination in the county were held at the residence of William Cherry which stood one mile south of Dover, some time during the above years. For several years the meetings of this church were held at camp grounds, of which they had three, they being situated on Wells and Lick Creeks and at Duck Springs. The first Cumberland Presbyterian Church was erected about 1816 or 1818, and stood near the Kentucky line. At about the same time a log church was erected on Cane Creek, where also stood a camp ground, and a congregation also met in the Methodist Church on Bear Creek. There are but three Cumberland Presbyterian Churches in the county, they being the Bethel Church, on Elk Creek; Liberty Church, three miles west of Dover, and Mount Zion Church, in the Ninth District.

Pre-1820 census records do not exist for Stewart Co, but tax records still exist for these years:

Eli West, in 1806, in Capt William Outlaw’s district.

Biggs, Cherry, not on pre-1809 tax listing; now West names 1807-1808.

William Cherry, in 1809, owned 340 acres in Capt Ross’ District on Caney Fork of Saline Creek. This was William Cherry [C1a8f5].

William Cherry, in 1810, owned 278 acres in Capt Ross’ District. This was probably William W Cherry [C1a6b2a2].

West West, in 1809 & 1810 was in Capt Ross’ District. "West West" was how his name was shown.

Asa Biggs, in 1809 & 1810 was in Capt Ross’ District.

In 1820 in Stewart Co there were four Cherry families; they are shown here in the order they fell in the census, plus other families known to be close friends or be a relative of Cherry families:

Kader Biggs (page 110), age 16-25, wife 16-25, no children; next door to James W Biggs.

James W Biggs (page 110), age 16-25, wife 16-25, 2 sons under age 10; between Kader Biggs and Reuben Biggs.

Reuben Biggs (page 110), age 26-45, wife 16-25, old woman over 45, 5 other adults, two boys 16-18, two boys 10-16, one boy under 10; next door to James W Biggs.

John Biggs (page 113), age 45 or older, wife same age, plus adult children in their home. There were four other Biggs families in the county: James W, Kader, & Reuben (all page 217) and all three were married young adults, and Lute Biggs (page 252), a young adult.

Wm Cherry (page 113), age 26-44, wife age 26-44, female age 16-25 (someone’s sister?), two males age 10-15; two males age under 10, two females age under 10; Wm Cherry was seven doors from John Biggs.

In 1830 in Stewart Co the census was alphabeticalized: the census taker probably thought he was doing future census readers a favor, but in fact this did not help genealogists since we cannot see who anyone’s neighbors were:

Biggs families- There were four: Kader Biggs, James Biggs, Joel Biggs, and John Biggs; John was age 60-69, wife age 50-59.

Daniel Cherry, age 15-19, female 20-29, 2 girls 5-9, one girl under 5, two boys under 5.

William West, age 20-29, wife 20-29, female 15-19, two girls 5-9, two boys 0-4, one girl 0-4; This was the only West in Stewart Co. See above Tax listing showing that W B Cherry was a guardian for the children of W H West.

In 1840 in Stewart Co, the census taker did us a favor, and did not alphabeticalize the names:

W W Cherry (page 318), age 60-69, wife 60-69, female 30-39, male 20-29, two females 20-29.

Nehemiah Cherry (page 318), age 30-39, wife 30-39, two sons 10-14, son 5-9; Nehemiah was next door to W W Cherry.

        William Cherry [C1a8p3], son of Willis W Cherry and Sarah _____ of Duplin Co NC, was born between 1776 and 1780 in Duplin Co. He was living in Duplin Co in 1810 and 1820 with his wife and their children. The next door neighbor in 1810 was Elijah Bizzell, with Will's brother Lemuel Cherry just four doors on the other side of William. Will's three children in 1810 were under the age of 10. In 1820 they were between the ages of 15 and infancy, with five of them under the age of ten. Therefore it would appear that since the two oldest girls were between 10 and 15 in 1820, Will's marriage date would have been about 1805. It was not in Duplin Co. He was not in Duplin Co in 1830. His children were-

a.     dau Cherry, b 1805-1810

b.     dau Cherry, b 1805-1810

c.     Bryan Cherry, b 1801-1810

d.     son Cherry, b 1811-1820

e.     dau Cherry, b 1811-1820

f.     son Cherry, b 1811-1820

g.     son Cherry, b 1811-1820 (68,DK,35aehip)


        William Cherry Jr [C1a7f7a], son of William Cherry and Susannah _____ of Bertie Co NC, was born about 1779 in Bertie Co. He married Peggy Baker there on 13 November 1801. Bond was posted by William, and a witness to the marriage was G(eorge?) Cherry. William was a graduate of the University of NC in the class of 1800. He was a trustee of the University from 1804 to 1809. "He had a brilliant career as an attorney until his untimely death hastened by intemperance, at the age of twenty seven." (93,105,C, WD, N,6m)


        William Cherry [C1a8k5], son of Samuel M Cherry and Mary Moore, was born about 1786 in Pitt Co NC. He was named in his father's 13 May 1813 will as "my son William Cherry." William married Delaney "Laney" _____, probably about 1808 from the ages of the children in the 1810 and 1820 census. He died by 1829, probably in Pitt Co where they lived. The 1810 census of Pitt Co had only one William Cherry (who was living next to Lamuel Cherry, George Cherry, and John Cherry). In 1810 he had one child, a son. His wife was born between 1785 and 1794 (1790 per 1860 census). The 1820 census of Pitt Co also had only one William Cherry. He was born between 1776 and 1794, as was his wife. and had three boys and three girls under the age of 10, plus one son between 10 and 15. Therefore, the 1810 & 1820 William must have been the son of Samuel; the number of children, and their approximate ages, closely fits later census records, and agrees with other sources. On 21 November 1829 Lewis Smith gave to Laney Cherry, "now widow," land and Negroes during her lifetime and afterwards the land and Negroes were to pass to her children (Pitt Co deed book CC, page 562). Therefore, William had died by November 1829, and Laney may have been Laney Smith. She called herself "Delany Cherry" in the 1830 Pitt Co census, and gave her age as in the 30s (born in the 1790s), and had four slaves. Hence she could have been the mother of all of William's children, if she was born in the early 1790s. Census records from 1810 through 1840 indicate that she was. Lany was probably the woman who was in her 50s living with her son Samuel in 1840. On 17 April 1843 in Pitt Co she made a gift of deed to her children (Book KK, page 223), and in this deed she named her children. Lany was living with her daughter Luzina near Greenville in 1860, and was 70 years old, born in NC. Hence she was born in 1790. William had nine children-

a.     Samuel Cherry, b abt 1809

b.     Margaret Ann Cherry, b 1812

c.     Luzina Irene Cherry, b 10 Dec 1813

d.     James P Cherry, b abt 1816

e.     Lemuel Cherry, b 1819

f.     Darling Cherry, b abt 1822

g.     Julia Cherry, b 1823

h.     Patience Cherry, b abt 1826

i.      Daniel Cherry, b abt 1827

In Delany's home in 1830 there was an extra young male, in his 20s, who was not on the previous two census records. He could have been a close relative who moved in after her husband's recent death, in order to help with the farm work. (57,WD,7ijknzq)

        William Cherry [C2d2a], son of Peterson Cherry and Sarah _____, was born about 1791 in Rowan Co NC (born 1791-1800 per 1830 census). The 1820 census of Overton Co TN is the first census where William’s name appears. William (age 26-44) was living 20 doors from Wesley Cherry (age 16-25), and next door to Elijah Cherry (age 26-44); they were on census page 259. Peterson Cherry (age 45 & older) was on census page 254, and James H Cherry (age 45 & older) was on page 256. There were 20 Overton Co census pages in 1820, so the nearness of all of these five Cherry families indicates they were close relatives. In William’s home, in 1820 were William, age 26-44, a son under age 10, four daughters under age 10, four females ages 16-25 (sisters?), and William’s apparent wife, age 26-44.

        The birth dates of all of William’s children, as determined from later census records and gravestone dates, was very accurately shown in the 1830 census in Overton Co. Therefore, William’s age should also be assumed to be accurate. The 1830 census showed he was age 30 to 39, or born 1791 to 1800. Since his parents had moved south to Rowan Co NC in the summer of 1790, William must have been born there. Living close by in 1830 was John Cherry, same age as William, and their father Peterson Cherry, born in the 1760s, and their mother, also born in the 1760s.

        William lived in GA in 1800 and 1801 (his father was on the Franklin Co GA tax list then), then lived in Overton Co TN, and died on 7 October 1836 at Palmyra, Macoupin Co IL. He married Ann Crawford in KY around 1810. The state of KY was the northern boundry line of Overton Co TN in 1810, so even though William may have married Ann in KY, that may have just been in Cumberland Co KY, a short horse ride north of his TN home. In 1810 Overton Co was at the exact north central edge of TN; the western one third of the present day state was not part of TN, but was wild, untamed Indian lands then.

        Anna was born 9 March 1788, daughter of Edward Crawford and Abigail Trowbridge, and died 17 October 1845 in Macoupin Co IL. She was buried in Cherry Cemetery at Palmyra, Macoupin Co. Her gravestone says "ANNA / WIFE OF / WM. CHERRY / DIED Oct. 17, 1845 / AGED /57 YEARS." The Cherry Cemetery was where many descendants of Benjamin Cherry [C2] were buried. William and Anna had nine known children-

1.     Nancy Carolina Cherry, b abt 1812

2.     Sarah Cherry, b 27 Feb 1813

3.     dau Cherry, b abt 1814, was one of the four daughters in the 1820 Overton Co census. She perhaps died (or married?) in the 1820s since the 1830 census did not show her. (70i)

        William Cherry [C1a5b2c2], son of Jesse Cherry and Elizabeth Mayo of Martin Co NC, was born in Martin Co, probably in the 1790s. He was named in his grandfather's 26 July 1815 will as a grandson. William was not named in his father's 24 July 1823 will, although his five youngest brothers and sisters were. So perhaps William may have already received his inheritance. (77,1aep)


        William Cherry [C1a6h2a], son of Caleb Cherry Jr and an unknown mother, was born early in the 1790s. He was possibly an elder son of Caleb Cherry of Davidson Co TN. William was shown on the 1811 tax roster in Davidson Co, although Caleb Cherry was not. Hence William was at least age 16 in 1811 (born by 1795). He married Rebecca Bell in Davidson Co on 09 July 1814. In 1820 in Davidson Co he had a young wife and just one child under the age of 10. William's wife was born between 1795 and 1804. They were not found in the area in 1830, and since brother Thomas was the administrator of father Caleb Cherry's estate, William must not have been in the area in 1825, or had died. William had one son, perhaps two since there were two boys under the age of 10 in Caleb Cherry's home in 1820 (William's sons?)-

He was married, living next to his brother George (born 1785-1794) and father in Pitt Co in 1810. In 1920 he and his family were still in Pitt Co, in a neighborhood (Capt Wallis District) of Brooks, Williams, Smith, Evans, and Tison families; Jesse Cherry (born 1776-1794) lived close by. William's wife was also born 1776-1794. William was not found in Pitt Co in 1820, but there was another younger William Cherry who was born in the 1800s (William's eldest son?). They had a son by 1810, then six more children by 1820-

        William Cherry [unknown], of Pitt Co NC, was born about 1808 in NC. He was a farmer in Parker's district, Pitt Co in 1850. His wife was Talitha Dudley and they were married about 1830. There was no William Cherry family in Pitt Co in 1830, so if William and Talitha married before the 1830 census, they must have lived with one of their parents.

        There were five Cherry families in Pitt Co in 1830: Artamipey Cherry on page 71; Delany Cherry on page 73; Jesse M Cherry on page 73; Roderick Cherry on page 83; and John Cherry on page 86. In Artamipey Cherry's home there was a couple of the ages of Williamd Talitha, plus Artamipey; in all the other Cherry homes there was no one who could be William or Talitha. Also in Pitt Co in 1830 there were five Dudley families: Enoch Dudley on page 52; Irvin Dudley on page 80; Rachel Dudley on page 80; Pulasky Dudley on page 86; and Samuel Dudley on page 89. In Rachel Dudley's (born 1770s) home there was a male and female of William's and Talitha's ages. In the other Dudley homes there was no daughter of Talitha's age.

William died 24 February 1913 at Sherman and was buried there. John C Daniel was the informant for his death certificate. They had a son-

1.     George Cherry, b 1905 at Sherman, Grayson Co TX. (271v) (271vd)


        William A Cherry [C1a6e6g], perhaps a son (or grandson?) of Abner Cherry of Martin Co NC, was born in 1806 (or 1808?) in Martin Co. By 1861 he was in Bibb Co GA. On January 21 that year he was named as an executor and trustee for the will of Arthur Stotesbury in Bibb Co (will book B, page 184). Stotesbury died by early summer in 1861. In the Stotesbury will, Job H (or N) Cherry was a witness. Because Abner Cherry had two unknown sons (born about 1806 and 1808), and because some of Abner's children had moved to Bibb Co and were of the only Cherry clan in the county before 1860, and because Abner also had a son Job S Cherry who did live in Bibb Co, William is here assumed to be one of the two unidentified sons of Abner.

        From information of Sandra Riner of Eidson, TN, this William was probably the William Cherry, born in NC in 1804, and who married Edna Perry Heard in Bibb Co on 25 October 1842. Edna was a daughter of James Heard and Nancy Foreman, both from Barnwell District SC. William died in GA on 2 June 1863. He and Edna had eight children, born in Hopston Co GA-

        William A Cherry [C1a8j4a4], son of John Cherry and Mary Ann Albritton, was born in 1838 in Pitt Co NC. He was a member of the Legislature and Register of Deeds before his death before 1883; in 1860 he was "Gentleman" W A Cherry living next door to the George A Dancy family in the town of Greenville. William had recently married M A _____. She was born in NC in 1843. (88,7knq)


        William Alfred Cherry [C1a3f6d4b8], son of Scerenus Cecil Cherry and Beedie Ann Austin, was born 18 May 1897, and died on 3 March 1957. He married Virgie Moss and they had two children-

a.     Von Varo Cherry, b 1927, married James Cloud.

b.     Harvey Sue Cherry, b 1933, married Buford Snider. (77)


        William Allen Cherry [C1a7f4e2a1], son of Joseph William Cherry and Pennaritta Pritchard, was born in 1860 in Bertie Co NC. He married Margaret Hargrove on 20 December 1894, and died in 1945. They had two children-

a.     Ruth Hargrove Cherry, b 1895, died in 1971. She married John Milton Cullette. They had two children-

        1.     Margaret Bain Cullette, b 1922. She married _____ Truslow.

        2.     Mary Emily Cullette, b 1929 (77)

b.     Sally T Cherry, b 1897 (77,6s)


        William B Cherry [C1a8i3], son of Solomon Cherry and Sofia _____ (Staton?) was born about 1766 in Edgecombe Co NC. He married Lottie Hopkins of NC and they had eight children, then William married Frances Taylor in Edgecombe Co on 25 May 1805. Frances was a relative of William Taylor, and a daughter of Joseph Taylor (17510-1818) and Sarah Elizabeth Best (1760-1834). They had ten children from 1806 to 1828. Frances was born about 1784 in Edgecombe Co NC. In 1790 in Edgecombe Co there were two William Cherry families; neither had a son, and both had two females. Therefore it would be likely that there was only one William Cherry family, and the census taker made a duplicate entry, skipping the William who later moved to Warren Co KY. The 1800 Edgecombe Co census had no William Cherry entries, but Bertie Co had two: one as a Jr and one as a Sr. Neither had sons to match the ages of William, born in 1766. William Jr of Bertie Co in 1800 had two sons, as did William Sr; both sets of sons were between the ages of 16 and 24. In 1790 in Bertie Co there was but one William Cherry, and that one had three sons under the age of 16. William (of Edgecombe Co) was living in Warren Co KY in 1810; there were two William Cherry families in Warren Co then, but the William of Edgecombe Co was the elder of the two, and his wife's age fit the birth date of Frances. In William's house were a second male adult over the age of 45 (a father-in-law?) and near-adult children from his first marriage, plus younger children.

        William may have lived close to Big Barren River because on 20 November 1811 he (as "Wm B Cherry"), William Taylor, and Allen Taylor witnessed a 144 acre land sale from John Moss and his wife Drucilla to Joseph Taylor for £120. And on 23 August 1816 Reuben Hammett and his wife Rebecca sold 200 acres on the waters of Gasper River to William Cherry for $500. On 12 March 1817 "William Cherry and wife Franky Cherry" sold 150 acres on the waters of Lost Creek of Green River to Reuben Hammett for $400. In this transaction Franky relinquished her dower. William's land was along William Allen's property line. William B Cherry died in Warren Co KY on 22 September 1828 and was buried at Richardsville in Halls Chapel Cemetery. In 1820 he and Frances were not found in Warren Co, so may have been living with a child. In 1850 Frances was living with her son George in Warren Co. Widow "Frances Cherry," age 69 and born in "Edgecombe Co NC," daughter of "James & Sally Taylor" died 17 November 1852 in Warren Co of a fever, and was buried in Taylor Cemetery at Richardsville. William had eighteen children with both wives-

From Deed Book 17, page 316 in Edgecombe Co NC, Eurodica Council made a gift to her grandchildren living in KY; the grandchildren were heirs of Eurodica's daughter Charlotte Cherry. And the 1805 will of Charles Council in Edgecombe Co named wife Dice, and daughter Charlotte Cherry who had children; a witness to this will was William Cherry. There was no indication, in 1805, that daughter Charlotte lived in KY then. (83,95)

A "Miss Mary Ann Cherry" married Elijah Upton in Warren Co, as his second wife on 29 August 1826. Elijah was born in Wythe Co VA on 30 August 1783, but grew up in Warren Co KY. His first wife was Elizabeth Ford, whom he married in Warren Co on 4 April 1812; she died in 1826 after the birth of her sixth child. Mary died in 1850, but had no children. Elijah died in Warren Co in 1863. This Mary Cherry does not appear to be connected to the William Cherry clan, unless she was the widow of William Cherry's son Samuel. (121, 110,77,95,JY,WD, C,5ahzp, 7ae,57zhmdc)


        William B Cherry [C1a8f5e], son of William Cherry and Polly _____, was born 21 January 1808 in Edgecombe Co NC (age 10-15 in 1820. He was living in Stewart Co TN in 1850 with his wife Sarah Eliza West. They married in Stewart Co on 24 March 1842. She was born in TN in 1827, thus making her 16 years old when they were married. William served in the General Assembly from 1839 to 1845, and was the county sheriff from 1837 to 1840 (his father was also a sheriff). William B was also the captain of the local militia. Living with William in 1850 was James West (Sarah's brother?), born in 1831, and William B Daniel, born in 1831. Captain William B Cherry died 27 January 1859 and was buried in Dover Cemetery in Stewart Co "Aged 50 yrs 11 mos 27 days." Sarah had no children by 1850, but in 1860 living with them in Decatur Co were (they are shown here in the order they were listed in the 1860 census)-

7.     A Cherry (dau), b 1842. She was shown last in the 1860 census, as if she was a step-daughter. (41q)

There were two William Cherry men born in the 1808-1810 years who lived in Stewart Co into the 1850s: William B Cherry, and William Henry Cherry [C1a6b2a2f],born in 1810. The evidence shows that William B was a son of the sheriff because he also became a sheriff and lived in the same area where the elder sheriff lived, near Dover. William H lived in the Indian Mound area of the county. Both had children, and William B Cherry died 27 Jan 1859 and was buried in Dover Cemetery. Dover is in the center of the county, on the south side of the Cumberland River; Indian Mound is near the center of the eastern edge of the county, and north of the Cumberland River William Henry Cherry died in 1866. (77,111, HD, 37knmc, 41q)


        William B Cherry [C2d1f4], son of Wesley Cherry and Sarah _____, was born in 1827 in KY (born 1826-1830 per 1840 census), and in 1850 was married and living next to his parents in Macon Co MO.

William was dead by 1880, and Sarah then lived at Valley, Macon Co. She has typhoid fever then, so may have died in the 1880s. William and Sarah had at least nine children by 1868-

        William Franklin Cherry [C2d1c3b8], son of Amos J Cherry and Alice J Noe, was born 8 February 1882 in Christian Co IL, and died 27 May 1942 at Dekalb, IL. His death certificate gave his parents as "Amos J Cherry" and "Alice J Noe," and had an 8 February 1875 birth date. The 1880 census does not show this son in the Amos J Cherry home. It does show son William H Cherry, age 2, daughter Flora age 4, and Peter M Cherry, age 6. Christian Co is two counties northeast of Macoupin Co and just east of Sangamon Co. But since Alice Noe stated that she had 13 children by 1900, then this William appears to be the missing child. He worked for the railroad. His birth date was adjusted to be about 1882 since he would have been of age by 1900 to be on his own, and was also not shown in the 1880 census. (147d)


        William G Cherry [C2d2a6], son of William Cherry and Ann Crawford, was born in 1821 in Overton Co TN, and died 27 October 1836 in Macoupin Co IL, probably of the same illness that took his father 20 days earlier. His gravestone says "SON OF Wm & A" and says he was age 15. (W,70j,60kc)


        William Gray Cherry [C1a8c1m2], probably a son of Lawrence Cherry and Fannie Grey Thigpen, lived in Martin Co NC in 1850 with his wife Martha _____ and children. Gray was born in 1823 in NC (he was born in 1823 per 1850 census, was not shown in 1860 census although new wife Cynthia and children were; was born in 1817 per 1870 census, and was born in 1820 per 1880 census). Martha was born in 1821 in NC. In 1850 they lived next door to Eli Cherry and Eli's wife Mary E Thigpen. The name Gray, and the fact that he lived next door to Eli indicate that his parents were probably Lawrence and Fannie. In the 1850s Martha must have died, and Gray then married Cynthia Peal, but he was not shown in her household in 1860 (children Caroline, John David, Nancy, and new wife Cynthia were). Cynthia was living at Williamston then. She was born on NC in 1818, daughter of Abram Peal and Nancy _____. Gray died on 10 October 1881. He had four to six children with Martha, and probably one or two with Cynthia, all born in Martin Co-

a,     Mary A Cherry, b 1843, was living with her parents (Gray & Martha Cherry) in 1850, but was not found afterwards. (1n)

b.     Susan Cherry, b 1845, was living with her parents (Gray & Martha Cherry) in 1850, but was not found afterwards. (1n)

c.     Penelope Cherry, b 1846, was living with her parents (Gray & Martha Cherry) in 1850, but was not found afterwards. (1n)

d.     Caroline Cherry, b 1849, was living with her parents (Gray & Martha Cherry) in 1850. In 1860 she was living with her step-mother Cynthia Peal. In 1870 she was living with her father and step-mother (Wm G & Sinthia Cherry); she was not married by 1880, and was living with her widowed father (Gray Cherry). (1nqrs)

e.     John David Cherry, b 1851 in Martin Co, was living with his step-mother in 1860, and was not living with his father in 1880. (1qrs)

f.     Nancy Cherry, b 1853 in Martin Co, was not married by 1880 and was living with her father. (1rs)

g.     Cynthia F Cherry, b 1857 in Martin Co, had married or died by 1880. (1rs)

Gray's name was spelled with the letter "a", not "e", in two different census records, so is here left with that spelling. In 1850 a Hester Cherry, age 7, and Abram Barnhill, age 4, were living with Gray and Martha; in 1860 Hester was living with Mrs Cynthia Cherry and was the last apparent daughter listed, even though she was the eldest. Hester had apparently married a Mr Barnhill soon before 1860, but her husband was not shown. Or perhaps the 1850 census was in error and Hester's actual name was Barnhill. There is a 12 February 1861 Martin Co will written by Abram Peal in which he named wife Nancy Peal, grandson Abram P Barnhill, granddaughter Mary L Barnhill, daughter Cynthia Cherry and her husband William G Cherry. There were two grandchildren living with Gray and Cynthia in 1880: Harriet Cherry, age 13, and Retta Cherry, age 6. Because of their birth dates, they could not have been children of Gray's sons, but instead must have been children of one of Gray's eldest three daughters. (91,1nrs)

James C Cherry, was born in July 1894 in the Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory. In 1900 and 1910 he lived with his mother. Since she was born in MS, and was married before she married William Henry Harrison Cherry in 1899, and had three children from that marriage, then James C must have been her son from her first marriage. The 1900 census shows where both parents were born; in James' case, both were born in MS, not one in KY. (121,C, 57knmqrs,242vwfc, 681u)

        William W Cherry [C1a5b2a2], son of Jonathan Cherry Jr of Martin Co NC, was born in 1777 in Martin Co. He married Lydia Minerva McDaniel about 1795 in NC. They were members of Skewarkey Baptist Church in Martin Co in 1905. She was born in 1778 in NC, and died late in 1852 in Stewart Co TN. They came to TN about 1809 by wagon train with five of their children, probably by way of Bedford Co TN where they stayed for a short time, then moved to Stewart Co and settled on the north side of the Cumberland River. Deed records show that William W Cherry lived along Saline Creek, northeast of Bumpus Mills, and close to the KY border. William bought land in Stewart Co in August 1810 and was on the 1810 tax list in Captain Ross' Company. William was active in local politics, and was a county justice.

There was a an older William Cherry in Stewart Co in 1820, living (page 117) some distance from William W Cherry (page 112). This elder William was distant cousin William Cherry [C1a8f5], son of Charles Cherry and Winifred Mercer. The elder William had first come to Montgomery Co TN with his brother Charles Cherry Jr, then on 6 Aug 1809 William Cherry, of Montgomery Co, bought 320 acres in Stewart Co. The elder William lived in Stewart Co until he died in 1824.

After March 1805 & before 1808; Wm. & Lydia Cherry appear in a list of members present in the Skewarkey Church, Martin Co, North Carolina. On 19 Oct 1816 Wm & Lydia Cherry were admitted to the Saline Creek Church on a letter from the Big Flat Church in Bedford Co TN. In the Saline Creek Stewart Co Baptist Church Minutes, it says, "On October 19, 1816, Wm and Lydia Cherry were admitted from the Big Flat Church in Bedford County, Tennessee."

Since the pre-1850 census records show very little information compared to the 1850 and later census records, it is useful to look at church records to learn who lived in the area of one church, in order to find names not shown on the pre-1850 census records, and to also show who probable neighbors were:

        Saline Creek Baptist Church was created on 19 May 1810, as a branch out of the Dry Creek church just across the state line in Kentucky. The 7 charter members were: Thomas Ross, Nathan Ross, Asa and Wynea Biggs, Wm and Sally Hubbard, and John Ferrill. At the first meeting, John Ferrill was elected church clerk. These first 50 or 60 pages are all in the same clear handwriting that John had while doing the Skewarkey Church minutes in Martin Co NC. John Ferrill was received into membership of the church from 2 letters of dismission, one from the Skewarkey Baptist Church of Martin County, NC, and another from the church on Big Creek, Hawkins Co TN. During the meetings of January through March 1818 of Saline Creek Baptist Church, John Ferrill got into a big argument with other members about a certificate or land ownership on some land that he gave to the church. John Ferrill was excluded from the church at the March meeting. Cornelius Anderson and Jesse Morris were excluded at the September 1818 meeting, and one month later, John Biggs was also excluded. In November, Robert Warren, William and Lydia Cherry, Nancy Biggs, Sally Morris, and Elizabeth Hooks all were excluded. John Ferrill was readmitted to the church in November, 1819, and all the rest followed at later meetings. Other members of this church in April 1812 were: Asa Biggs, John Ferrill, Robert Warren, John Biggs, Isaac McKinney, Robert McKinney, Henry King, Nathan Ross, John Stancill, Cornelius Anderson, Wynea Biggs, Boatswain Valentine, Elizabeth Williams, Elizabeth Hooks, Penny King, Rebecca McKinney, Mary McKinney Jr, Nancy Biggs, Amy Wallace, Mary Anderson, William Hubbard, Sally Hubbard, Elizabeth Neville, Mary McKinney Sr. The August 1823 membership was: Polly Anderson, John Ferrill, Rosey Biggs, Polly Ross, Nancy Reddick, Betsey Wallace, Patsey Cherry, Polly Stalls, Wm Reddick, Pherebe Franklin, Jesse Morris, Harly Stalls, Thisby Anderson, Phebe Anderson, Zilpha Ferrill, Penny Warren, Jonathan McKinney, Polly

        William W Cherry [C1a8f4d9], son of Jeremiah Cherry and Sarah G Benton, was born 25 December 1850 in Weakley Co TN (age 83 in 1930). He married Lenora Annie Roberts in Weakley Co on 24 February 1875. She was born in TN in 1858. In 1880 they lived at Ralston close to his mother. In 1930 William was a widower and lived with his son Silas at Dallas, TX. William died at Dallas on 28 February 1935. S W Cherry was the informant for his death certificate, and named William's parents as Jerry M Cherry and a Ms Bunting, and named William's wife as Nora Cherry. William's father's name, as told to the doctor by Silas, might have been heard as Jerry M, when Silas said Jeremiah. Silas also said that his father retired from farming in 1927; that may have been when he moved to TX after Lenora died. William was buried in Laurel Land Memorial Park. He and Lenora had two sons-

a.     Silas Wright Cherry, b 20 Feb 1875 at Ralston, Weakley Co TN (age 4 in 1880, 46 in 1920, 54 in 1930). He lived at Dallas, TX by September 1918 and had married Martha Eula Greer about 1900. She was born in TX on 14 November 1883, daughter of William E Greer and Mary Brice. They were still at Dallas in 1930 and Silas' widowed father lived with him then. Silas died at Dallas on 25 March 1941. "Marttha Eula Cherry" was the informant for his death certificate. Silas was buried in Laurel Land Cemetery. Martha died 18 February v1976 at Dallas and was buried with Silas. Mrs Myrtle Williams was the informant for her death certificate. They had five children, all in TX-

William was a coach maker, and married Mariah W Polk in Maury Co on 6 April 1858. She was born on 24 February 1841 in TN, daughter of Gideon Polk and Mary C White.

        William Walton Cherry [C1a8h3b], son of Solomon Cherry and Mary Cherry of Bertie Co NC, was born in 1806 in Bertie Co near Windsor. There were many instances of William W Cherry in Bertie Co in the 1820s and 1830s, then little after 1832; he was a State Senator in 1838. William W Cherry married Mary H Etheridge of Colerain in Bertie Co on 6 August 1827. The marriage was witnessed by Thomas G Peters, and the bond was posted by Richard Russell. William was in the mercantile business for about two years, taught school, and afterwards began the study of law. In 1838, after two unsuccessful attempts, he defeated Dr Alexander Mebane for the state senate. William was largely responsible for the establishment of free public education in NC. In 1840 he was a delegate to the national convention of the Whig party in Harrisburg, PA. In 1844 William was again in the NC legislature, this time in the House of Commons representing Bertie Co. In 1845 he was nominated as the Whig candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from the first district, but died the following week, on May 2, at age 39. In May 1845 in Bertie Co William's will was probated. In it he named Mary H Cherry, Mary Eliza Holder, and Hannah Maria Holder. Mary H Cherry, age 41 and born in NC, was living with Joseph H Etheridge (age 37) in Bertie Co in 1850. This would place William's wife's birth date at 1809. She would have been age 18 when they were married. Apparently Joseph Etheridge was Mary's younger brother. And living with the Joseph Etheridge family was Mariah C Holder, age 18 and born in TN. Since William did not mention any children of his own in his will, he and Mary probably had none. In 1840 the Bertie Co census shows three children who could have been William's (the three children were aged around 10), but there was an extra woman in her 20s (perhaps 29?) living with William and his wife. Perhaps the extra young woman was a widowed sister or sister-in-law.

        They lived at his plantation "The Oaks," which his widow Mary sold to William's brother Joseph Blount Cherry in 1850. Mary was still living in Bertie Co in 1860 with Joseph Etheridge, and was still in Bertie Co in 1870 (pg 179). (93,98,105,C,6mnq)

        Willis Cherry [C1a5c1h], son of Jesse Cherry and Mary Riddick, was born in the 1760s in Martin Co NC. (77)


        Willis Cherry [C1a8i2], son of Solomon Cherry and Sofia _____ (Staton?) was born about 1764 in Pitt Co NC. He was the Willis Cherry who married Charlotte Council (sister of Clary Council who married Solomon Cherry. This couple had married by late 1790s, probably in Edgecombe Co, and in 1815 they were living in Warren Co KY. Charlotte was born 4 December 1777. On 12 May 1814, Clary's and Charlotte's mother Eurodica Council made a deed of gift to "the heirs of my daughter Charlotte Cherry" who lives in the state of Kentucky." A deed dated 2 June 1815 and recorded in Warren Co conveyed 200 acres on the waters of Clifty Creek from Willis Cherry and wife Lotty (she relinquished her dower here) to William Mitchell for $550; witnesses were Samuel A Bozeman and John McFadin. And on 15 March 1818 Willis Cherry and Richard Lemasters witnessed a land sale from John Laninham and his wife Marget to Jonathan Parker, land on the waters of Clay Lick Creek in Warren Co. In Warren Co on 29 May 1820 Elijah Hammett and his wife Catherine sold 100 acres to Robert Daugherty for $500, land at the east corner of the Willis Cherry survey. Soon before 1820 Willis and family had moved four counties northwest to newly formed White Co IL. He bought 16,000 acres (25 square miles) there on 4 October 1819 for $200. He was still in White Co on 22 November 1820 when the Federal census was taken. There was a Willis Cherry in Madison Co IL in 1830 (west side of IL); that Willis was born in the 1790s. The only Cherry in White Co in 1830 was Henry Cherry, born in the 1800s, as was his wife. Willis had probably died in the 1820s, and since he was a widow by May 1814, his unmarried children were then taken in by neighbors and other older relatives. Son Henry did not have any siblings in his home in 1830. Hence, Henry, the eldest son, was the only Cherry name in the 1830 White Co IL census. Cherry marriages took place in the 1849-1861 years who could be of Willis’ younger children, or they were Willis’ grandchildren, children of sons Henry, and Jesse, and Howell. Willis’ children were-

a.     Temperance Cherry, b abt 1799

b.     Henry Cherry, b1802

c.     Lucinda Cherry, b 1804

d.     Jesse Cherry, b 1805

e.     Howell Cherry, b 1807 in NC

f.     dau Cherry, b 1811-1820 (159i)

In 1850 the only Cherry names in Warren Co KY were Alford Cherry (pg 17), Allen Cherry (pg 31), George Cherry (pg 31), and Joseph Cherry (pg 31); these were children and grandchildren of Willis’ brother William B Cherry [C1a8i3]. (77,WD, JY,ILi,57z, 159zij)


        Willis Cherry [C2d1e], probably a son of Benjamin Cherry III and an unknown mother, was born in the 1790s in Franklin Co GA. He lived in Madison Co IL in 1830.

        Willis Cherry [C1a5b1b1c], son of Henry Cherry Jr of Beaufort Co NC, was born in 1804 in Beaufort Co NC. He married Emelia L Perry about 1835. She was born 19 December 1818 in Beaufort Co, daughter of William C Perry and Nancy L Walker. He was living in Washington Twp in Beaufort Co in 1840 and 1850; in 1860 he was at Tranters Creek. Their children, other than Julia, were shown in 1850 at Tranters Creek without parents; this is obviously a census taker's mistake. In 1860 the whole family was listed together at Tranters Creek. Emily and Willis died after 1880 in Beaufort Co. They had thirteen children, all born in Beaufort Co-

1.     Julia Cherry, b 1836

        Willis W Cherry [C1a8p], son of Lemuel Cherry and Gatsey Ann Llewellyn, was born about 1748 in Beaufort Co NC. He was under age when his father died in 1754, and was bound to William Willis before January 1765; William Willis was one of the executors of his father's will. By the summer of 1774 Willis Cherry owned land in Duplin Co, next to the 200 acres Thomas Bennett was granted on 22 July 1774 from the Crown. This land was on the north side of Goshen Swamp, and between Dry Pond Branch & White Oak Branch. Other neighbors at the time were John Oates, James Smith, and Joseph Wade.

        Willis was in the Revolutionary War on the NC Continental Line in Wilmington District (Duplin Co area), and was granted 228 acres on Barton's Creek; this land was assigned (probably sold) to James Hicks on 12 December 1801 (warrant #3386, per thigpen). If so, the transfer was done by his heirs after Willis died in Duplin Co in September or October 1801. Willis was also in the NC Militia in Wilmington District. There are three warrant numbers associated with his service: #3356, #3675, and #3799. Willis witnessed two marriages in Duplin Co about 1780: the Sarah Bizzell - James Hurst marriage on 8 November 1779 and the James Bizzell - Mary Bowden marriage on 9 January 1781. This shows the close ties between Willis and the Bizzell families (Willis' son Lemuel married Sarah Bizzell).

        In the 1784 state census of Duplin Co, Willis was the third from the last listed in the district of Captain Bowden's Company. In his home were one male over age 21 and under age 60 (Willis), two boys under the age of 21 (Lemuel & William), four females (his wife and three daughters), and one slave. Also in the same county in 1784 were other names with ties to the Cherry families in the counties to the northeast around Martin and Edgecombe Counties: Thigpen, Ward, Harrell, Grimes, Williams, Gray, Outlaw, to name a few.

        In 1790 Willis' was the only Cherry family in the county (he was in the Wilmington District); in his home there were himself, three males under age 16 (born between1776 and 1790), and four females (Mary, the eldest daughter, married in 1788 and left her parents' home, and two more daughters were born to Willis and his wife since 1784). There were four slaves. In 1800 Willis was not found, but his wife Sarah ____ was; Willis was still alive, but since Sarah was the head of the household in the census, Willis must have been feeble, and perhaps bedridden. In her household in 1800 were two girls under age 10 (Nancy & Polly), two girls (Sarah & Rebecca) & one boy (George) age 10 to 15, two boys age 16 to 25 (William & Lemuel), Sarah, age 26 to 44, and seven slaves. The 1810 census shows Sarah living about midway between Lemuel and William, her two eldest sons (now married); she had one boy in her home, age 16 to 25 (George), one girl age 10 to 15 (Patience, Nancy now was probably married), herself age 45 or older, and six slaves. Sarah was also found in Duplin Co in 1820, living alone, age over 45. She was born between 1756 and 1765, according to the 1800 and 1810 census records, so was probably not the mother of Willis' eldest daughter.

        Duplin Co court records from April 1785 and July 1785 reveal that Willis Cherry was the overseer in charge of clearing the main channel of Goshen Swamp in District 14 during the dry season. The swamp was the waterway by which barges and flat-bottom boats carried supplies into and out of the northwest corner of the county. District 14 was approximately four miles southeast of the present-day town of Calypso, and four miles northwest of Beaufancus. The hands working under Willis in clearing the waterway were James Bizzell, William Stone, Arthur Bizzell, Hardy Bizzell and his negro, Thomas Bennett, William Bennett, Samuel Bennett, "& all others belonging to their families.

        Willis left a will dated 12 October 1800 in Duplin Co, and he died in September or October the following year. His will named "beloved wife Sarah Cherry" (she received "one negro wench by the name of Juda" and a negro named Tess, plus household furniture and one-third of the plantation where Willis lived), his six daughters Mary Bennett, Elizabeth Millard, Rebecca Cherry, Nancy Cherry, Sally Cherry, Polly Cherry, and sons George Cherry, Lemuel Cherry, and son William Cherry (William received the plantation Willis bought from John Bradley on the north side of Pond Branch). Near the end of the will he named another daughter Patience Cherry, but also said he only had six daughters, and re-named them. Polly's position from the first list of daughters was replaced with Patience in the second listing. The two youngest sons, in addition to land, each received "one horse creater." Son George was under age 21 when the will was written. Witnesses were Hardy Bizzell, William Cherry, and Rebecca Cherry. Executors were Hardy Bizzell, and Willis' eldest son Lemuel; Lemuel was often called "Lamb" in the will. Willis could not sign his name, so made his "Χ" instead (he also made an "Χ" when he witnessed the two Bizzell marriages of about 1780). His nine children, all named in the will, were-

1.     Mary Cherry, b abt 1768

2.     Elizabeth Cherry, b abt 1775

3.     William Cherry, b 1776-1780

4.     Lemuel Cherry, b 1779

5.     Rebecca Cherry, b 1784

6.     Sarah Cherry, b abt 1785

7.     George Cherry, b 1785-1790

8.     Nancy Cherry, b 1790

        Wilson Cherry [C1a7d4e], son of Lemuel Cherry and Sarah McPherson, was born in 1797 in Edgecombe Co NC. He, with his brothers John and Cary, were in the Battle of New Orleans on 7 & 8 January 1815. They served in Captain Henry West's Company, 3rd Regiment, Tennessee Militia (Infantry). Wilson married Catherine Hodge and they lived in Jackson Co TN in 1820 (census had his name as William in 1820), and was shown in Jackson Co in the 1830 census. Catherine was born in 1792 in NC, and apparently died before Wilson (but after 1850) because he also married Adaline ____ late in life. Adeline was born in 1843. The William Cherry living in Jackson Co in 1820 was born between 1795 and 1804. This was probably Wilson; brothers John and Cary lived in Jackson Co in 1820 also. The wife of the 1820 William in Franklin Co was born 1775-1794, which matches Catherine Hodge’s age. Their sons in 1820 were one boy age 10 to 15, and two were age under 10. Wilson died in 1862 in Jackson Co. Wilson and Adaline lived in Jackson Co in 1850 with four of their children. There were at least eight or ten; because Wilson’s wife was about 5 years older, two of the eldest sons in the 1820 census may not be Cherry sons, but could easily be sons from a prior marriage of Catherine. -

1.     male Cherry, b 1805-1810

1.     male Cherry, b 1811-1820

1.     Phineas E Cherry, b 1820

4.     Wilson H Cherry, b 1828

5.     Alexander Jackson Cherry, b 1830

7.     Sarah E Cherry, b 1834

There were two older teenage girls living with Wilson and Catherine in 1840. Perhaps they were her daughters from a first marriage? The Hestand progenitor was Henry Hiestand of Zurich, Switzerland, born in 1709. (77,SL,C,26ijkn)

        Winifred Cherry [C1a9f5], daughter of Charles Cherry and Winifred Mercer, was born between 1775 and 1784 in Beaufort Co NC. She probably was not married by 1805. In 1840 in Beaufort Co there was a Winey Cherry, born in the 1790s. In her household were two girls, one born between 1831 and 1835, and the other born between 1821 and 1825. (87,4apek)


        Winifred Cherry [C1a8f2c], daughter of John Cherry and Mary _____, was born about 1795 in Beaufort Co NC. She was probably not married by 26 July 1836 when her father's will was written, and was not married by 1850. In 1850 she was living next to her aunt Mary, the widow of uncle Jeremiah Cherry [C1a8f3], and two doors from her brother John Cherry in Beaufort Co. There were two other younger Cherry females (nieces?) living with Winifred then: (Mrs?) Drucilla Cherry, age 29, and Del... Sheppard Cherry, age 10. (87,4n)


        Wright Cherry, [C1a8h5], perhaps a son of Cader Cherry and Judith Burnett (and a brother of William Cherry who moved to Warren Co KY), was born between 1756 and 1774 in NC. He had married Mourning Biggs [C1a5c2e] about 1789 because her father's 1789 will named her as "Mourning Cherry" and not as a Biggs. Mourning was Wright's third cousin. He was living in the Halifax district of Edgecombe Co in 1790 with his apparent wife, and no children. Where Wright and Mourning were living in 1790 was in the area of five other Cherry households: Levi, Robert, William, Wily, and a second William Cherry. Mourning was a daughter of Margaret Eastwood [C1a5c2] and Joseph Biggs. According to the 1800 census, Wright's wife was born between 1775 and 1784. Either she lied about her age in 1800, or she was born in 1775 and married Wright when she was 14 or 15 years old in 1789 (not uncommon two centuries ago). A more probable birth date was about 1763, which fits nicely with the more accurate birth dates of her siblings. Wright died in April or May 1804 and his estate was settled in February 1806 in Edgecombe Co; Lemuel Thigpen was appointed to be the administrator, hence there was no will. After Wright's death, Mourning married William Burkitt by 3 November 1818 (Edgecombe Co deed Book 16, page 228), and died between 3 November 1818 and 15 February 1822. On those two dates she and her children transferred title of land in Edgecombe Co (deed book 16, page 228, and book 17, pages 431 & 432). Buyers at Wright's estate were the widow Mourning, Levi Cherry, Wiley Cherry Jr, Robert Cherry, Obed Cherry, Wiley Cherry, and Willie Cherry. Deed book 17, page 431 & 432 show that Polly Cherry was one of two heirs of Wright who received land at the death of Mourning; the other heir appears to be Obed Cherry, who transferred his half interest (upon his death?) to Polly by 15 February 1822 (perhaps Polly was a daughter, and not a sister?). Wright and Mourning had one, or perhaps two children (she apparently had none with William Burkitt)-

a.     Obediah Cherry, b 1790s

b.     Polly Cherry (maybe Obed's daughter?), b 1790s

Since Obadiah, son of Wright, was a child in 1801, and there was an Obed Cherry who bought property at Wright's estate sale, it would be likely that Wright was related to Obed Sr, Fanny, and many of the remaining buyers at his estate sale. James Biggs' (husband of Jemima Cherry) sister was Mourning Biggs, Wright Cherry's wife. (86,77,JY,1p, 5ehzpm)


        Wyatt Estes Cherry [C1a7d4e5c8], son of William Jackson Cherry and Mary Lou Dalton, was born 12 April 1909 at Arcott, Clay Co TN. He married Ersie Condra on 1 August 1926. She was born 15 October 1909 in TN, daughter of Frank Condra and Ona Gass Wyatt. Wyatt died on 27 September 1960 and Ersie died 15 December 1987. They were buried near Arcott in the William J Cherry family cemetery. They lived in Clay Co in 1930 close to his brother Orville. He and Ersie had three children-

a.     Evelyn M Cherry, b 1928 in Clay Co TN. She married Ernest Birdwell. (77,64fx)

        Yeatman Whitman Cherry [C1a6b2a2c8], son of Daniel B Cherry and Margaret Rebecca Stancill, was born 28 January 1834 at Dover in Stewart Co TN. He married Elizabeth Clark in Stewart Co on 5 June 1851. She was born 14 May 1836 at Dover, daughter of Axium Green Wallace and Sally Elizabeth Clark. They were in Stewart Co in 1870 and had eleven children by then. The census taker in 1870 showed most children two years younger that their correct ages. In late 1870 they moved near Pinville in McDonald Co MO where he was a farmer. Their children were born in Stewart Co TN. In 1910 they were back in northwest Stewart Co near Bear Creek.

Elizabeth Clark's father Axium Green Wallace never married Sally Clark, hence the family name of Clark for Yeatman's wife. Axium later married Minerva Cherry, Yeatman's distant cousin. (128,77, 102,HD, 37nqrvc,83s)
