States: Virginia: Princess Anne
I am looking for information on Robert Berry of Princess Anne County in the early 1700s. Robert was listed in Richard Williamson's will of 1721 as the husband of Mary Berry, daughter of Richard Williamson. Robert died in 1730 leaving his wife and two sons, Richard and Robert Junior. Mary sold her land in 1740 and died sometime before August of 1746. Robert Junior, an orphan, was ordered to be apprenticed to Samuel Hollowell at that time. This Robert may be our family patriarch. This Berry line has DNA proven lineage back to him.
We are trying to locate any direct descendant of Richard Berry. Richard was listed in Princess Anne County in a 1783 census. He had 5 children at that time. Any information of this Berry line would be greatly appreciated.
