I am wondering if you have any information on the Berry family. Jacob Berry and his wife Rose Jane Dunbar had a son Salathiel born in 1827/28 in Lexington District, SC. In the 1850 Census of Lexington, Salathiel appears with his 16 year old wife Rachel. I am trying to find out what Rachel's maiden name was. I think it may have been Spires or Lucas.
In 1860, Jacob, Rose Jane, Salathiel, and Rachel are in Lawrence County, AL. Living next door are Hannah Spyres (widow of Anthony who is in 1850 Lexington), her children, Matilda Lucas age 70 (from the same page in the 1850 Lexington census), and Matilda's daughter Elizabeth.
I am trying to do this for a friend. I have nothing on the Berry clan other than the census records in SC. Salathiel became a minister by the time he was in AL.
Just as a side note, a sister of my husband's ancestor married a Nicholas Hutto in Dale Co., Al in the 1840s. I have some information on that line in SC. Nicholas was a big family name, several in each generation!
I appreciate any help--I'm stuck up in Connecticut with no ancestors from New England. Look forward to hearing from you. Susan Lawrence
