98. Seth MAYBERRY88 was born about 1783.88 He died after 1860 at the age of 77.88

1820 Census, Jackson Co TN
Seth Mayberry. 4m -10, 2m 10-16, 1m 26-45 [Seth]; 1f -10, 1f 26-45
This would have been Seth's first wife. Both wives were named Rebecca. The surname of the first is unknown. About 1823, Seth married Rebecca Allen, daughter of George Allen. Rebecca Allen was born in Greenville Dist SC in 1791 and moved to Jackson Co TN with her brother Jesse. In 1820, she was living with Jesse's widow, Rebecca Allen.
Based on this census in 1820, Seth and his first wife likely had other children whose names have been lost - probably two older sons and a daughter.

Land Entry Book, Jackson County Land Office
<http://www.jacksonco.org/land.htm>
Seth Maberry enters 30 acres on the South side of Roaring River. Begin on birch sd Maberry's corner of a 50 acres survey thence with with John Buris South boundary line. To include an improvement made by Maberry. 3 Nov 1834.

Seth's father is likely Francis Maybury, trader & land speculator from Pittsylvania Co VA who was present in the future state of TN as early as 1785. He was probably a son of George Mabury Jr, who was a brother to my ancestor Isaac Mabury.

Francis Maybury purchased numerous warrants in both East & Middle Tennessee. He had a partner named Thomas Jackson; both lived in Hawkins Co Tn. There was also a James & Richard Maybury in Hawkins Co - quite likely sons of Francis. In March of 1797, Francis Maybury of Hawkins Co sold 200 acres on waters of the Roaring River in Jackson Co to Archibald Simpson. This land was described as beginning at the corner of a Maybury survey of 853 acres, part of a larger survey of 2560 acres. Francis Maybury was on the tax list of Jackson Co in 1801 and in 1802. Seth Maybury also lived on the Roaring River in Jackson Co.

Seth MAYBERRY and Rebecca ALLEN were married about 1823 in Jackson County, Tennessee.89 Rebecca ALLEN, daughter of George ALLEN, was born in 1791 in South Carolina.89

The Mayburys CD
From an Allen family history:
"Rebecca Allen, born in Greenville District, South Carolina in 1791, moved to Jackson
County, Tennessee, with her brother Jesse. In 1820, she was living with Jesse's widow,
Rebecca Allen. About 1823, she married Seth Mabry in Jackson County, Tennessee, as
his second wife."

Seth Jr. will also marry a Rebecca T. Allen - she might have been a daughter of Jesse.

Mary "Polly" MAYBERRY92 was born on 14 April 1830.92 She died on 11 July 1925 at the age of 95.93

Polly married William Riley Gentry. She must have been his second wife.

Francis "Frank" MAYBERRY94 was born on 15 August 1833 in Jackson County, Tennessee.94 He died on 5 August 1875 at the age of 41.94

Frank married Barbara Gentry. I wondered if she was a sister to William R. Gentry but can't find that.

In 1850, Barbara Gentry was living with Elizabeth, age 63, born NC. They were two entries from William R. Gentry who was 36 that year. In 1860, there was an Elizabeth Gentry, age 80, b. SC living with Thomas Gentry, age 43. She could, of course, be the mother of Thomas, William & Barbara. WorldConnect file does show these three to be siblings, children of Jesse Gentry & Elizabeth Gallion who married 28 Jan 1807, Grainger Co TN
