bullet  General Notes:


This John Berry (married to Elizabeth Harris) is not known to be related to our Berry line of John Berry and Mary Grimes. However, there does seem to be a number of things that link the two families. Additional research to make the links is necessary. A linkage might be confirmed by a male descendat of this line participating in a y-DNA program like the Berry Family Project at FTDNA. One source has identified John as the grandson of Thomas Berry Sr., of Hancock Creek area in Clark Co., KY. There does not seem to be any documentation of the relationship. (see John Berry Jr., RIN 13696).

Also, please note that the data presented here is mostly the work of others (included in my sources); I have compiled and added some documents to support that work. 2

[While there was only one Garrett Berry in Madision County, there was usually more than one John Berry reported in the tax lists between 1799 and 1810.
One John Berry would have been married to Elizabeth Harris. Elizabeth Harris was related to the Grubbs family. Perhaps this John was involved with Garrett in the case vs Grubbs. This John and Elizabeth moved to MO in about 1809.
The other John Berry (my ancestor) m. Mary Grimes in 1808, and moved to Clark County in about 1809. Was it he that was involved with Garrett in the Grubbs case? This John was also involved in a Madison County case vs Thomas Taylor.

The family moved to Missouri from Madison Co. in 1806 with cousin, William Berry. [note: Madison County, KY., tax records show a John Berry in Madison until 1810, so I think the 1806 is incorrect.]

The Coopers again started in February,
1810, for the Boonslick country, and arrived there about the 10th of March.
The following forty persons came and settled successively in the country
that spring, to wit: Col. Ben Cooper, and his sons, Francis Cooper, Wm.
Cooper, David Cooper, and John Cooper; Braxton Cooper, and his son,
Robert Cooper; Capt. Sarshall Cooper, and his sons, Braxton, Joseph and

Capt. Sarshall Cooper had leased of Mrs. Ira Nash a Spanish grant of 600
arpens claimed by her husband, so as to settle in the country under the guise
of this claim, but they all settled considerably above this claim, the precise
location of which was much in dispute for a long time. Nash never lived on
the claim at any time.

The first settlement, or more properly the first cabin erected and
patch of corn planted, were the work in 1812-13, of John and Wil-
liam Berry
, Wm. Baxter and Reuben Gentry, in the neighborhood, if
not on a part, of what is now known as "the Model Farm," formerly
constituting the large and rich estate of the late Hon. John W. Har-
ris, and in earlier times called "Thrall's Prairie."1 In the same
neighborhood, soon after, settled James Barnes, Robert and Mitchel
Payne, John Denham, David McQuitty and Robert Barclay, with their
families. Little progress, however, was made in the settlement of the
country, now embraced by the boundary lines of Boone County, until
after the subsidence of the war with Great Britain, and until after the
treaty of 1815 by which the Indians relinquished all claim to any
portion of the territory north of the Missouri River. In fact, it may
be affirmed as substantially true that, anterior to this time, there was
not a white settlemen t worthy of the name within the present limits
of the county.

THOMAS C. BERRY....
568 PAST AND PRESENT
...Mr. Berry was born in Boone county, Missouri, on the I9th day of De-
cember, 1827, and is a son of Tyre H. and Hettie B. (Cofer) Berry. Tyre
Berry was a native of Kentucky, born in January, I800, and a son of John
Berry
. The latter was also a native of the Blue Grass state and emigrated to
Missouri in I806, being, it is supposed, the first white man to grow corn west
of St. Charles. He first settled in Boone county and cleared up a farm (now
known as the John Harris farm), on which he lived the remainder of his life.
His was the first body interred in the Sweet Springs cemetery. At the time
he made the journey from Kentucky to Missouri the route was infested with
wild animals and still wilder red men and the long and wearisome journey
was accompanied by many hardships and undesirable experiences....
