Berry's from Covington County, Alabama

Question by MBerry

Hi, I have just started my search for my Berry ancestors and wanted to post some information on here to see if there is a relation to some Berry's listed here.

A little history on my family. My father passed when I was 14. He had been suffering from Alzheimer's for many years. I think he was diagnosed when I was 6 or 7 years old. I don't remember much from my childhood with my father so I am relying on the information from my Uncle Alfred. I would love to connect with my Berry family and look forward to meeting new Berrys!

My father is Minos Wayco Berry. There was some confusion as to Minos' real name. I'm not certain what it really was at birth, so I'm calling him Hudson Minos Wayco Berry. b. 3-18-1923 d. 10-18-1994 but he went by M.W. Berry.

Minos' parents: Burried in Opp (Covington County) Alabama
William Early (Willie) Berry b. 3-4-1893 d. 2-10-1969
Beulah Strickland (Berry) b. 1-15-1901 d. 12-12-1993

Minos' father's side of the family:

William Early Berry's parents:
Robert Fulton Berry b. 6-15-1871 d. 12-7-1937
Savannah Brown (Berry) b. 6-7-1870 d. 11-23-1947 no more information about her ancestors

Robert Fulton Berry's parents:
Holland Berry b. in AL in 1845 d. in Ariton, AL in 1899
Mollie Easter Senn (Berry) b. 1849 no more information about her ancestors

Holland Berry's parents:
Andrew J. Berry b. in SC in 1815 no more information about his ancestors
Nancy (Berry) b. 1824 no more information about her ancestors

Just in case, this is my grandmother's information:

Minos' mother's side of the family:

Beulah Strickland (Berry's) parents:
Daniel David Strickland b. 1-6-1873 in AL d. 11-21-1951
Callie Donia Coon (Strickland) b. 6-22-1873 in AL d. 12-10-1964 (Her name could have been Donna instead of Donia)

Daniel David Strickland's parents:
either Jas Neal or Bill Neal no more information about his ancestors
Nancy Strickland no more information about her ancestors
I don't think Nancy ever married the Neal man. I don't know whether the confusion about Jas or Bill is because people can't remember his name or if it's because Nancy was unsure as to which man was the father.

Callie Donia Coon's parents:
Henry Louise Coon b. April, 1850 no more information about his ancestors
Nancy Catherine (Katie) Mancil (Coon) no more information about her ancestors

Any information would be greatly appreciated!!! You can email me anytime @ [email protected]
