Daughter of John & Hannah Berry.

On 27 Jan 2014 Find A Grave contributor Nena Smothersprovided the following information:

JFYI//first to just let you know Polly was her first name, given to her in honor of her grandmother Polly Black Devore, her mother's mother.

I have some interesting notes on Mary and she is buried here and husband elsewhere as they div Apr 1878 2 yrs after John just up and left her taking at lest 4 kids with him and then married to the widow Margaret White [Clanton]
Polly and John had 10 kids then he had 3 sons w/Margaret plus she had 3 kids from Clanton [James, Emma, May]. These two also raised 2 of John Compton's grand kids so had a house full she did.

But for now will just add the basics. Both are interesting folks with some history to be told.
