                           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 
                                   2




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 
                                   3




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.

     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.

        NOTES CONCERNING SIMILAR SURNAMES IN ENGLAND AND THE COLONIES
     For several years we have wished to make a connection between the Terry 
families of Virginia and those of Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York. 
Notes submitted by Waunita Powell of 407 Elm, Paris IL 61944 have pointed 
out some of the similarities re: surnames and the locales that are 
associated with certain surnames. Perhaps others will help to put some of 
the puzzles together.

died, 10 May 1625. He attended Winchester School in 1572 and graduated from 
Oxford in 1578 B.A. & 1582 M.A. He held strong anti-Roman Catholic opinions

1660, when he became one of the first settlers of Hadley, Mass. He was the 
first Constable of Hadley. There he received 9 acres of land and was taxed on 
the basis of 200 pounds. He related, somehow to Nathaniel Cooke, of Windsor,

Aaron Cook, of the "Mary & John".

    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

     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 I lived in New Jersey about 1980, there was a TERRILL ROAD BAPTIST 
CHURCH At 1340 Terrill Road, Scotch Plains.
     "History of First Baptist Church of Piscataway." I found no Terrys. The 
fourth paster was Reune Runyon 1783-1811. A later note gave the first pastor 
as John GANO with a footnote that Mr. Gano married a daughter of John STITES, 
Esq., Mayor of Elizabethtown, and a ruling elder of the Scotch Plains 
Church...later pastor of New York City church for 25 years, retired to KY in 
1787.

     Index shows "an alphabetical list of all persons who have belonged to 
this church from 1747 (each person only shown once)" [Only TERRY surnames

     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.

     I understand you are the editor of the quarterly on the Terry families. 
The past six years I have been studying the passengers of the ship, "Mary & 
John" of 1630, including Stephen Terry of Dorchester, Mass., Windsor, Conn. & 
Hadley, Mass. 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. 
Editor's Note: The two books are: 
Volume I, "Passengers and their Children" -- $13.50 
Vol. II, "Descendants' Return to the Ancestral Homes"-- $14.00.]

     "....Went to the 300th celebration of the 'Oldest House' on Nantucket end 
of September and first of October. 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. I 
wish I could find another descendant of this couple, but have not to date...."

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.
