Am trying to find out more about the Maberry families in the Smyrna area in the early 1800's - in census records there appears to be a John Maberry, born 1760's, also a Thomas Maberry, 1770 - April 1, 1843, buried in old Asbury cemetery in Smyrna. In his probate records, Thomas had at least four children: Ann Maberry Parrott, John Maberry, Mary Maberry Boyer, and Thomas C. Maberry (who lived in Philadelphia for many years as a merchant). Also in the Smyrna area was a John C. Maberry (ca. 1797-1864) and wife Temperance Brockson Maberry (1812-1855) who were parents of the John B. Maberry of Smyrna who was a Civil War hero at Gettysburg. Can anyone tell me if the John Maberry who is the son of Thomas and this John C. Maberry are one and the same? Also any other information on these family lines would be appreciated.
