Found on Pittsylvania Co VA USGenWeb county page Queries, 1998:
Various databases online have just as much conflicting information about the Terry family as I've found for other families living in Pittsylvania Co VA. Apparently the large families with so many similar given names, as well the formation of counties in this area has created mass confusion. Barton's ancestors as given here are not adequately researched by me and should be considered tentative and suggestive at best. It is a combination of information found online as well as common sense in eliminating improper places of birth and impossible dates. I do believe there was a familial relationship between most of the Terrys found in Pittsylvania Co.
Only one child is attributed to Mary and Barton online. The censuses indicate other children, presumably Mary Walters was Barton Terry's only wife.
Another Terry that moved to Highland Co was David Terry & wife Elizabeth Anderson Terry. David was a son of John & Sarah Hodnett Terry, and a grandson of Joseph & Judith Crawford Terry. [Margie Brown]
1830, Highland Co Ohio, Madison Twp.
In 1840, there was no Barton Terry in Highland Co Ohio - or anyplace else in Ohio, nor in Marion Co Indiana, where daughter Elizabeth was living. I did find a Mary Terry, of the correct age, 50-60, living in neighboring Ross County, Ohio, Paint Twp. She had two females age 10-15, an older man 70-80, and 10 males between the ages of 20-30. Obviously some sort of boarding facility. I have no idea if this could be the widow of Barton.
Mary WALTERS and Barton TERRY II had the following children:
