Derryberry/Derrie/Derry's in e. TN

WE are searching for the parent's of Robert Allen "Tom" Derryberry/Derrie/Derry b. Bet. September 1859 - 1860, that lived in Greene County, but may be from Burke County, NC? He was married to Sarah Clowers. Any help will be appreciated. {Guessing that he could be the s/o a Thomas Derryberry?}
1900 Census Index Greene County, Tennessee

Derryberry, Robert born Sept 1859 in TN - age 40 Location Greene Co, Dist 4

Derryberry, Sarah Wife June 1852 47 TN
, Alice Dau Aug 1880 19 TN
, Thomas Son Mar 1882 18 TN
, Jesse Son July 1884 15 TN
, Irene Dau Sept 1885 14 TN
, Robert Earnest Son Sept 1889 10 TN
, Roscoe Son Aug 1890 9 TN
, Mabel B. Dau Mar 1895 5 TN

Although the dates don't match exactly the dates on tombstones and other records, there is no doubt in my mind that this is our Derry family. (Robert E must be Earnest). To me this is proof that our earlier ancestors were named Derryberry and our task now is to link Robert into other Derryberry lines.

Further proof from other census records. From the 1910 Census Index, I found Deeryberry, Sarah J. age 57 and living with her was Roscoe, son, age 17. And in the 1920 census Index, I found Darrie, Serra, age 65 living with J. L. Potter as mother-in-law.
This info came from Dennis Ayres on his recent trip to Greene County, Tennessee.
