HAWKINS CO. BERRYS
Berry Ballfield and Tavern at Pressmen’s Home
"Thomas and his father, William Berry, came down the Holston River into Tennessee from Virginia in the late 1700's." Are they related to the folks here?
My purpose in developing and presenting this database is to encourage the DNA testing of living Berry surnamed male descendants of the persons listed herein with the aim of confirming or refuting the relationships shown insofar as possible.
If you are such a person, or know of such a person whom you would like to sponsor, or just have questions about genetic genealogy or DNA testing generally, I'd be happy for you to drop me a line by clicking this link.
This site is very much a work in progress, both the research and the look and feel of the layout itself. This site has been developed with Reunion 9.03 which is a brand new release of the Reunion database. And, like other new releases, it has its problems. I'm not yet comfortable with its data stability and I see that the source citations might need some tweaking.
An additional point. When viewing a 'Person Sheet' do not be misled by the designation 'Unmarried' under Spouses. It should be ignored. The Reunion database cannot handle the lack of a spouse without gratuitously inserting that designation. I will only use 'Never married' where appropriate, never 'Unmarried.
