I have this book in my possession if anyone would like information from it.
It is about the descendents of Thomas Nelson Berry (1812- 1868) and Juliet
Sophia King Berry(1822-1886) of Whitley Co, KY and their nine sons and
daughters and their descendents. Sons and Daughters:

William Edward Berry b.1844
Nancy Jane Berry (Laughlin) b.1847
Issac King Berry b.1850
Thomas Embassy Berry b.1852
Andrew Adolphus Berry b. 1854
Eliza Ann Berry (Early) b. 1856
George Madison Berry b. 1858
Mary Susan Berry (Arthur) b.1862
Robert Crittenden Berry b.1865 (my line)

They were related to the Sharp, King, and Laughlin families. They left KY
after Thomas Nelson died after the Civil War and ended up in OK. A lot of the
sons participated in the OK Land Rushes.

Thomas Nelson was the son of John Wesley Berry (1776-1860) and Agnes (or
Nancy?) Clark (1782-1864) of Kentucky, and grandson of Francis or Frank
Berry (1755-?) and Sally Sharp Berry (1754-1834). Frank disappeared and left
her with about 13 children to raise.
