**************************
Doctor Doolin Luther Berry was the son of William Huston Berry and Caroline Maria (Boone) Berry. He was the grandson of Nathan Boone (son of the famous explorer Daniel Boone) and his slave woman Mariah. He was married to Mamie White, and they were the parents of infant Kenneth, Helen Drucella who died of tuleremia from a blackberry thorn in her thumb, Millard W. who was a WWII Army Veteran, Lawrence T, Charles Luther who was also a Veteran and a railroad employee, and Freddie.

"Luther", as he was commonly called, worked as the fireman for a kiln, and was a longtime tuberculosis sufferer. We find his full legal name on his WWI Draft Registration, and that he already suffered from lung problems by that time in 1917. In later years he worked as a janitor. He finally died at the Missouri State Sanatorium at Mount Vernon of his illness, though his usual residence was Ash Grove.

Though his Death Certificate states he was buried at Ash Grove, findagrave members Mark and Kay (#46832542) have thoroughly researched the Holy Resurrection Cemetery and interviewed the Boone/Berry descendant Father Moses Berry who manages the cemetery on the old Berry farm. He states Doctor Doolin Luther Berry is in fact interred at Holy Resurrection, with no stone in existence.
