bullet  General Notes:

By association (using conventional research and y-DNA test results) it is probable that descendants of James H. Berry and Catherine Elder are related to the following Berry lines:
Thomas Berry Sr. (~1728 to 1824) and wife, Catherine LNU*; they died in Clark County, KY.
James W. Berry (~1780 to 1837) and wife, Margaret LNU; James died in Madison County, KY.
Garrett Berry (~1761 to ~1830) and wife, Mary LNU; they died in Madison County, KY.
John Berry+ (~1785 to 1817) and wife, Mary Grimes; John died in Clark County, KY.
John Barry (~1790 to ?) and wife, unknown, of County Limerick, Ireland.
John Berry+ (~1775 to 1840) and Elizabeth Harris; they died in Saline County, MO.

The direct descendants of James and Catherine have not been y-DNA tested. However, other family lines listed above have been tested and found to be related. Specifically the descendants of Garrett's son, William, and those of John Berry (m. Mary Grimes) have been tested. The 1844 letter of John Calvin Berry (youngest son of John Berry and Mary Grimes) identified James and William (son of Garrett) as his uncles. This information combined with the following show James Berry (m. Kittie Elder) related to Garrett. [ceb, 30 Mar 2015].

From the "Annals of Platte Co., MO" by W. B. Paxton, 1899:

[page 11] STATEMENTS OF WOODS AND BERRY
Adam C. Woods and James H. Berry were citizens of Clay in 1828, and frequently visited the Fort. They saw the soldiers constructing their quarters of hewed logs, and their stables of round cottonwood trees. The Cantonment afforded a market for the surplus produce of the west half of Clay. There were no Indians in Platte. A few Iowas were at Blacksnake Hills, and at Agency, in Buchanan. The best known officers at the Fort were Maj. Riley and Cols. Sumner, Harvey, and Kearney.

[page 329-330]
Aug 1862: Maj. Drumhiller is in command at Platte City, wich part of Col. Penick's 5th Cavalry, Missouri State Militia. Wagons and teams are pressed for transportation to Richmond, MO. J. H. Berry, A. Tribble, R. J. Robertson, and others send teams on the trip of six days.

EARLY SETTLERS
The first settlers in the township, like the early settlers of other towns hips, have mostly passed away. Among these were Wm. Brown, Townsend Brown, James Brown, Wm. Hoy, Samuel Hoy, Dowell Durbin, Allen Chance, Adam C. Woods, William Woods, Wm. Fox, Wm. Fox (No. 2), John Andrews, William Berry, James Berry, Wm. Lewis, Dowd English, J. B. Cox, Bradley Cox, Wilson Williams, Gen. Rodgers, Wm. Wilson, Washington Drew, Peter Rogers, Wm. Conway, R. C. Brown, L. Aallen, J. W. Drew, Sashell Brown, John Broadhurst, J. C. Dyster. The population of the township in 1880 was 999.

PIONEER PREACHERS AND CHURCH MEMBERS
James Cox, a native of Kentucky, was the first minister;; he belonged to the Christian Church known as Reformers.

The Primitive Baptists built a log church four miles west of Barry in 1840. Peter Simpson was the irst preacher of this denomination. He was noted for his manner of dress, which was usually a blue coat with brass buttons. The Browns and Hoys were among the prominent members of the Baptist Church, while James and William Berry, Allen Chance, Hiram Walleer and Gen. Rodgers were pillars in the Christian Church. Richard Cain is thought to have taught the first schol in about 1841 or 1842.
