Washington J. Berry-lawyer/George W. Horner families

I need to know if Washington J. Berry, lawyer, age 62, who is in the Alexandria, Campbell, KY 1880 census is the son of James Taylor Berry & Elizabeth Wise? Living with Washington in 1880 are his wife Susan and 3 children, Agnes, Thomas and Josephine. Living next door is James T. Berry, who I believe is a son of Washington and Susan, along with his wife Ellen (Horner) Berry, 3 children Thomas L., Susan O., and George F. I believe that Ellen/Ella Horner is the daughter of George W. Horner & Francis M. Baker. Can anyone verify that? James and Ellen went to IL, then MO, and eventually settled in Independence Co., AR by 1900 census. In the 1900 census they have 11 children. Also living with them is John Horner, brother to Ellen. I am especially interested in Thomas L. Berry, son of James & Ellen. Thomas left AR to attend a family funeral (possibly his mother's) in KY. When he left KY to return to his wife and children in AR he was robbed and murdered. Does anyone have cemetery info for any of these people listed? Does anyone know about the murder or the trial (we were told there was one)? I will gladly share the information I have on the descendants of James and Ellen with anyone connected to the family. Thank you.
