Their suggestion:
First, thank you for the work you've done here.

I'm very sure I have the right man here. The age is right, the place is right. I think this is Wiles L. "Berry" Andrews, b: 1849 Dale Co., AL, died abt 1926, Dale Co. I believe his wife was Jane Andrews. (she has a similar gravestone to his, hers says "age 80" on it) His father was Samuel James Andrews b: 15 jun 1827 Darlington, SC, his mother Martha Ann Matthews b: 6 Aug 1827 Dale Co., AL, d: 8 Aug 1904 Dale Co. (there are many Matthews buried in Dale Co.) His grandfather John Jackson Andrews abt 1803 SC - 1862 Dale Co. His grandmother Sinai Atkinson, 1803 SC/NC - aft 1880 AL.

This is an old email someone gave to me years ago from a Greg Andrews about Berry Andrews:

Wiles L. Andrews (nicknamed "Berry") was a very studious boy and
would always read everything he could find. He was always writing and
studying thereby making himself self-educated. He did not like working on the farm and was trying something else. At one time he went to Texas and bought three or four sections of land; joined the Methodist Conf. there and did not pay much attention to his land, later this land was taken back for its taxes. The land he owned in Texas was in the rich oil section. He spent several years in Florida doing newspaper work and giving ""Speeches"
