COVERING THE TERRY-TORY
by Robert W. Terry 4900 Springdale Road Cincinnati OH 45247
We family tree searchers are occasionally grateful for an unusual given name bestowed upon a male of the Terry tribe by his parents. These names pop out at the searcher much quicker than the more common given names and give rise to the question:
"Is he the one in our ancestry?"
That leads to a more detailed and thorough investigation of available facts and the ultimate conclusion that the person with the unusual name is, or is not, important to the search being conducted.
In my case, I'm grateful for one ENOS TERRY, probably the eldest of five sons of my g.g.g.grandparents, John and Ruth Terry. Their second son was named REUBEN, again unusual enough to make the searcher pause, but the last three sons in order were ROBERT (my ancestor), JOHN and WILLIAM; much more difficult for the searcher to trace.
First mention of ENOS is in "Notes of the Terry Family in the U.S." which says he was a native of New Jersey, born about 1755. Based on other
information, I feel that he was born some time later than that date.
ENOS not only had an unusual name, he had an unusual occupation. A book, "The Trans-Appalachian Frontier," reveals that he was not a hunter or a trapper, as many pioneer men were, but a potter. He is said to have fashioned trenchers, dishes and bowls to trade with the hunters for meat and pelts, in 1780 at Strode's Station, near present Winchester, Ky. He was listed as present at Strode's during the Indian attack of 1781.
In March, 1782 ENOS is listed as "AMOSS" Terry; in May, 1782 as "ENEAS" Terry, and in November, 1782 as "ENOUS" Terry, in the Lincoln County, Ky. militia. Also in the November was his father, JOHN, with both surnames spelled "TERREE" on that list. (I am curious as to the type of military duty performed by a potter not familiar with firearms -- could he have been a cook?)
The Madison County, Ky. tax lists of 1787 show ENOS as the owner of one horse and two cattle. His father, JOHN, is much more affluent with three horses and 16 cattle. The same county's 1788 tax lists say that both Terrys had moved to Fayette County.
My conjecture is that the families moved to a location near the Ohio River opposite Cincinnati in what later became Woodford County, Ky., extending north to the river at the time it was formed.
JOHN and son ENOS lived close enough to acquire lots in what is downtown Cincinnati in May, 1789. John received a gift lot from the developers and bought two other lots. ENOS made news by paying an unheard-of 80 shillings for a lot at Sixth and Main Streets. Even my ancestor, Robert, then a youth of 18, bought a lot.
Prior to the Cincinnati move, the name "ENES" Terry appears on a Kentucky petition in 1785, asking that two additional counties be created from Lincoln County, the division occurring two months later.
In Cincinnati proper, ENOS was listed with early settlers of the present Cumminsville community in 1790, but removed with others as the result of Indian threats. My guess is that he came back to Cincinnati and began to buy and sell real estate.
In 1794, ENOS gave $2 toward a new Presbyterian church (his own parents were Baptists); he appraised the oxen and wagon of a man killed by Indians. Since 1790, ENOS had filed for forfeitures of land in sections whose owners had not provided for settlement; he received forfeitures in several cases, and either sold the land or absented himself for another location. On one occasion, he bought a 100-acre tract and sold it at a profit five weeks later.
By 1803, ENOS was listed among organizing members of the South Bend Baptist Church formed west of Cincinnati. He had acquired in 1799 the 106- acres originally forfeited to his father, JOHN, in that community.
ENOS apparently left Cincinnati for Montgomery County, Ohio and by 1808 or 1809, had settled in Darke County, where he afterward became an associate judge of Common Pleas Court. The "History of Darke County" says that ENOS and Billy Wilson connived to win designation of their settlement, called
Greenville, as the county seat in 1810, but the Ohio Legislature reversed the selection and re-established the county seat at the old military fort site.
As a judge, ENOS once inflicted unusual punishment on a man convicted of stealing a watch from a Fort Greenville soldier. ENOS gave him the choice of 40 lashes, OR divesting his clothes and climbing a thorny locust tree at Enos' home. The outcome has not been recorded.
In Darke County, Enos operated a mill near Greenville which the troops from the fort dismantled due to Indian dangers. He also operated a tavern.
There is no identification of his first wife, mother of his sons: Nathan, administrator of ENOS' estate, and John. His second wife was Elizabeth (Hole) Craig, widow of John Craig, of Montgomery County, and the mother of eleven children. They were married in 1816.
ENOS died May 1, 1826 at Greenville, Ohio. Because his parents gave him an unusual name and because he was a colorful character, I owe much of my success in researching Terrys to him.

NOTES ON TERRY FAMILIES OF
WARREN AND BUTLER COUNTIES KENTUCKY
by Matilda Adams 1481 Rainbrook Way Corona CA 91720
I have been to Salt Lake City twice to do research and hired a good researcher to help me and we could not find my George Washington Terry's parents. George was born June 1819 in KY and married in Warren Co. KY 1843 to Sarah Jane Sumpter. He then appears on the 1850 to 1900 Census in Woodbury, Butler Co. KY. Earnest Terry [of Meridian MS] thinks his parents were William B. Terry b. 8 Sep 1785 VA and Mary Bean Carter. William was the son of Obadiah P. Terry and Sarah Day. William died in Harrison Co. KY 12 Mar 1860. We could not find a will for William or any deeds to tie him to my George. I have quite a bit on William's family back to Thomas Terry Sr. b. 1732 VA....If you have any suggestions or places that I should do research please let me know and any Terry information that I find will forward to you.

At a general meeting of the inhabitants of the County of Cumberland, in New Jersey held at Bridge-town, on Thursday, the 22nd day of December, 1774.
The articles of the Association entered into by the American Continental Congress being publickly read, were unanimously approved of; whereupon it was resolved, that a committee of thirty-five persons be appointed to carry the same into execution throughout the county; accordingly the following persons were chosen: viz.: Abraham Jones, Thomas Maskell, Ephraim Harris, Silas Newcomb, Ephraim Seely, Daniel Elmore, Jonathan Ayres, Elijah Hand, David Bowen, and Josuah Brick, Esquires; Messieurs John Wheaton, Benjamin Mulford, Abijah Holmes, Thomas Brown, Joel Fithian, Daniel Maskell, John Gibbon, Michael Hoeshell, Thomas Daniel, Jonathan Smith, William Aul, Joseph Sheppard, Isaac Preston, Samuel Leek, Mark Ryley, John Buck, Ezekiel Foster, Joseph Newcomb, Jonathan Lore, John Terry, Gideon Heaton, Richard Wood, Joshua Ewing, John Laning, and Thomas Ewing.

According to Chambers the surname TERRY appears very early in ["Early Germans in New Jersey] Southold, Long Island which was named after a town of the same name in Suffolk County, England. Some of these early settlers removed to Elizabeth, New Jersey.... "The township of Roxbury was formed ... December 24th, 1740. From it, the present townships of Chester, Washington, Mt. Olive and also a part of Mendham, Randolph and Roxbury were probably formed."
Chambers also notes that Richard Terry, from Southold, was the first of the name in Roxbury. He further states, Richard, of New Jersey, was probably the great-grandson of the first of the three brothers Richard, Thomas and Robert TERRY of 1635 fame.

When my father, Carl Anthony Terry, Sr., died several years ago, he left for me a hard-bound copy of a very interesting book. It had belonged to his uncle, Edward Anthony Thurston (ref. page 594 copy). As you can see from the copies, it has become quite fragile.... [The book was published by Mr. Brown Thurston of Portland Maine in 1892.]
In reference to the copy of page 594 of the Thurston Genealogy, Dr. Charles Church Terry was my grandfather.... I understand that his marriage to my grandmother, Cora Belle Thurston, was his second marriage and that he had a son by his first. He was 52 when my father was born. He died shortly after as a result of a fencing accident. He had remained agile and enjoyed the sport of fencing. When very young, I had heard my parents say that there was some questions as to it being an accident. The only details I remember are that the tip of his opponent's foil fell off and the foil pierced his mask, entered his eye and pierced his brain.
Editor's note: This book on Thurston's is very similar to the book by Stephen Terry of 1887. It is interesting research because several of these TERRY- THURMOND citations are not found in Stephen Terry's book on Terry Families in the U.S.

DESCENDANTS ON SHIP "MARY AND JOHN"
If you have descendants who came to America on the "Mary & John" in 1630 you are quite lucky. After six years of researching all the passengers on this ship, Mr. Burton W. Spear of 5602 305th St., Toledo OH 43611 has published two books on these descendants. They have pictures of early areas in England, plus Massachusetts and Connecticut in the United States. Of specific interest to TERRY-PHILES is Stephen Terry of Dorchester who is one of the few Colonial American Terry's with a "proven line" from England.
The books are:
Vol. I "Passengers and Their Children" is $13.50
Vol. II "Descendants' Return to Ancestral Homes" is $14.00.
They are very good books and I highly recommend them. Mr. Spears has indicated he is working on his next book which covers four generations for each of the passengers on the ship "Mary & John". *****************************************************************************

JAMES TERRY OF TENNESSEE
The editor is pleased to announce Mr. Woodford Terry has published an excellent accounting of his TERRY descendants. The book, entitled JAMES TERRY OF TENNESSEE, is hard cover and contains 765 pages including pictures and an index with almost 13,000 names. There is one chapter on James Terry's background and other information in Granville County, North Carolina and Virginia and one chapter on each of his twelve children and their descendants. Other information includes stories, three old Terry cemeteries and memorabilia. My favorite story in the book is an account concerning "a barn door" which hangs in Woodford's den. The cost is $45.00 and the book can be ordered from Woodford Terry, 111 Wiltshire Drive, Oak Ridge TN 37830. [Telephone 615-483-4217].
The editor recently received a review copy of Nicholas R. Murray's BEAR TRACKS, it is published quarterly for $10.00 per year and may be ordered from Mr. Murray at P.O. Box 204, North Salt Lake UT 84054. The name is misleading as the quarterly covers any surnames and is most noted for their computerized marriage records.
A note on page 2 of BEAR TRACKS includes information concerning the passing of Mr. Ray Beeman formerly of Memphis, Tennessee and a correspondent of several researchers of the Terry Family Historian. Since 1976, Mr. Beeman shared his information with the editor concerning TERRY-HILL-MORRIS-BEEMAN- STOKES-JONES connections. Mr. Beeman left, as a legacy to us all, some splendid work. -- He will be missed. *****************************************************************************

THE SOUTHERN GENEALOGISTS EXCHANGE QUARTERLY

It may be ordered from Cj Stevens, 5323 Heatherstone Drive, Baton Rouge, LA and is $16.00 per year. Mr. Stevens humorous style is well worth the price. In the most recent issue, he cites the TFH as a "...detailed and meticulous account of the Terry families" and adds .... "For southern family, this is a good source." Of course we already knew this; however, coming from Mr. Stevens, this is truly a compliment. *****************************************************************************

I understand you are the editor of the quarterly on the Terry families.

I have written two books on the subject and am now preparing a 520 page book, plus index, on the first four generations of the passenger's descendants. In 1985 over 80 descendants spent 16 days in England and New England visiting the home towns of the passengers. During the trip I learned that Stephen Terry married Joan Hardy in 1633 and he returned to New England on the ship, "Recovery of London".... Burton W. Spear, 5602 305th St., Toledo OH 43611.

This is the house which was given to Mary Gardener and Joshua Coffin as a wedding present by their parents. Their daughter, Margaret Coffin, married Reverend Samuel Terry whom I believe to be my ancestor."
"I also visited Mendon, Mass. where Margaret Coffin Wilson and Samuel Terry were married. The house of her parents in Mendon is still being lived in and was built around 1701. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the hoe which was a thrilling experience. I also visited the site where Samuel Terry built the first saw mill and iron works in Mendon, Mass. which is now the site of a larger iron works and cotton mills. I am still working on the compilation of Margaret Coffin Wilson and Reverend Samuel Terry and hope to finish it before the end of this year. I will send a copy to you when it is completed.

260387 TERRY CHISUM
Am working on the genealogy of my grandfather, Thomas Ethridge Terry....He was b. 9 Mar 1887 in the Indian Territory [OK]. Family sources give Tecumseh or Chickasha area as his birthplace. His parents were Aaron? and Anna Elizabeth (Chisum) Terry. Am uncertain what happened to Aaron Terry because Anna remarried a man named Chapman and never mentioned her first husband. She remained in the Oklahoma City area until her death April 16, 1948. Mark K. Terry, 1311 Rolling Hills Dr., Graham TX 76046.
