**************************************************
The surname I am researching is TERRY. There were several early settlers to Todd County, Ky. by the TERRY name. Capt. Nathaniel TERRY & Ann Thompson TERRY of Halifax Co., Va. arrived in Southern Todd & Logan Co., Ky. Corporal Stephen TERRY and wife, Mildred (Bagby) TERRY, came in 1780 - 1808 from Louisa Co.,Va. Both came with sizeable families & only lived a few miles apart. They settled the area now called Guthrie, Ky.

I am seeking information on a Ms. P.B. TERRY (wife of W.L. Kimbrough born
about 1830) and a Mr. B.F. TERRY (Captain, CSA KIA) of Todd County, Kentucky.
I am thinking that these two were siblings, but need your assistance to confirm this.

TIA,

Baytown, TX,

Is this B.F. Terry the same who with a Mr. Lubbock organized the Terry
Rangers to fight in the Civil War?
    Fran    redwards@wt.net

Yes Fran, he is one in the same.
Gene

Gene,
    Are you aware that he is buried in Rosewood Cemetery, in the shadow of
downtown Houston?  He is thought to be an ancestor of my husband - not proven
yet.       Fran

Fran,

No, I was not aware of his burial location. I have heard of Rosewood
Cemetery, but am not sure just how to get there. I live in Baytown. Here is
the connection I am trying to make.
My mother was MIMMS, and her mother was a KIMBROUGH. Her mothers grandmother
was Penelope B. TERRY. I believe that Penelope was Captain Terry's sister, as
they would have been close in age (I think). She was born on 14 Aug 1831 in
Todd County, KY. Do you have any dates on Captain Terry and what do his
initials B.F. stand for?
I also think these Terry's are the descendants of Captain Nathaniel Terry of
VA, a revolutionary war veteran. I had so info on this some where, but in the
transfer of data from files to the computer I have lost some things.

TIA,
Gene

I am looking for information on my maternal grandparents and great grandparents. My grandfather, Jesse Cornelius TERRY m. Ann(ie) WATERS. They lived in Winton, N.C. until Ann(ie)died either during or shortly after giving birth to a baby boy. They baby died about 3 weeks later. Jesse and Ann(ie) had 3 other children; Jesse Walter, Alma Lee, and Annie Mae. Alma, my mother, and Annie Mae were twins, b. 4-8-1919. I don't know where my grandparents originated from, so I am checking neighboring states of North Carolina. If anyone has any information that might help me to find something on my grandparents and great grandparents, I would appreciate it so very much if you would share with me.
Thanks,
Carol Wilson Wright <carmax@nefcom.net>

KY Research Tips
TIP# 96 - REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS - SHELBY THROUGH TRIGG
Terry, Nathaniel VA line, 10th regt; 13 Dec 1823; 3 Mar 1826; $480.

The first Historical Marker request I am making is for Stephen Terry, born
1758 in Hanover Co.,Va. and died in August 1820 in the newly formed Todd
Co.,Ky.  He moved to that area called Pondy Woods (Guthrie,Ky.) in 1811 with
his whole family.  His eldest daughter, Martha Ann Terry had married John
Smith Byars in Louisa Co.,Va. and his eldest son, William Morris Terry, had
also married in 1806 in Louisa Co.,Va. a Miss Elizabeth McGeehee Crank.  The
three youngest children were daughters: born 1804, 1806, and 1808.  The one
born in 1806 was my great grandmother.  Anyway, Stephen Terry, was shot thru
the right arm at the Battle of Brandywine in 1777.  He afterwards received
an Invalid Pension.  He must have been a very honorable person for when his
father, James Terry, died in 1783, he had not finished writing his will, but
Stephen Terry took this writing to the Court House in Louisa County and had
it probated, though he would have benefited more by not doing so.  It set
the timber of his life.  He married Mildred Bagby of Louisa Co.,Va. in 1782.
They are both buried in this huge cemetery on what was once a part of their
family farm.  Their tombstones have long ago fallen under the ground or it
could have been possible but not probable that their graves were marked by
simple fieldstones.  Anyway, I spent $1,500 to have this cemetery cleared
last year and intended to have tombstones placed there in their honor--hope
to get that done this fall.
Thanks for offering to help me.  I'll let you know if it is accepted.
Best regards, Edna Bushnell. EBushnell@prodigy.net
