The Berry Family: Are they Descended from American Indians?

Journal by AnLynn208

My Berry Family comes from South Carolina. The first Berrys were 1 of 7 families that settled in Sandy Bluff in the Carolina Territories.

The Berry name which is previously thought to be English, may actually be descended from American Indians. The question comes up when the Berry family is unable to be traced further back to Europeans who came over during the Great Migration.

I found this article online at Rootsweb that explains everything:
