Albert Constantine Berry was the son of William Martin and Margaret M. Smith Lemaster Berry of Lawrence County, Missouri. The family moved to Texas after the death of Margaret Berry in 1856, and settled near the Cedar Creek community in Bell County.
On January 21, 1875, Albert Constantine married Georgia Ann Willeford, daughter of John Hunter and Arabella Anderson Willeford. After living on Georgia Ann's land, they moved to Erath County for a year, then returned to Bell County. After the crop was in, they decided to go to Missouri where the older Berrys lived, but they got as far as Arkansas, where they stayed for two years.
On Christmas Eve 1880, they returned to their land at Cedar Creek. In 1882 they began construction on their home on the 93 acres which Georgia Ann owned. The lad stayed in the Berry family until 1974.
In 1914, the Berrys built a large home in Pendleton and on January 21, 1925, they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary just five miles from the place they were married.
After moving to Pendleton, A.C. went into the grocery business with his son-in-law, J. B. Martin, and a few year later became vice president of the First National Bank of Pendleton. He was president of the bank at the time of his death on May 3, 1930. He was buried in the Pendleton Cemetery.
Georgia Ann Berry lived until 1952 in a small home built for her across the street from the home they built in 1914. She died July 11, at age 95, and was buried next to A. C. in the Pendleton Cemetery.
Berrys were members of the Pendleton Church of Christ.
