Looking for the parents and siblings of my great-grandmother, Martha 'Mattie' Agent. Her surname may also be Edgin, Edgen, O'Guin.Martha Agent was listed as mother on my grandfathers (John Wesley Berry) delayed birth certificate. Jeff Berry was listed as father. The 1900 Whitfield, Hickman, TN census has her as Mattie Berry, born Sept 1863 TN, married 16 yrs (1884), 7 children, 7 living, parents born TN, wife of Thomas Berry. ? Thomas is listed as born Aug 1850 Missouri, parents born TN.
1. Jossie (Josie) b May 1886 TN, married Robert Shelton Sept 15 1907 Hickman Co, TN
2. Archelus (Archie) b Oct 1888 TN ?
3. Walter b Dec 1890 TN?
4. Rose or Rosie Bell was not listed on this census for some reason. She was born Dec 4, 1890 Hickman, TN and died May 5, 1963 in Hickman, TN.Married William Andrew Russell May 12, 1928 in Coble, Hickman, TN.
5. James Corley Berry, b Nov 1892 TN. Actual birthdate is Sept 21, 1894 Coble, Hickman, TN and died July 7, 1988 in Hayti, Pemiscot, MO. Married Elsie Vera Vaughn June 23, 1916 Humphreys Co, TN.
6. Thomas (Thomas Monroe A J Berry), b July 1896 TN, Actual birthdate is Nov 5, 1897 Beaverdam, Hickman, TN and died Oct 1974 in Trenton, Gibson, TN. Married Bertha Tate Aug. 19, 1921 Hickman, TN.
7. Wesley (John Wesley Berry), my grandfather, b May 5, 1900 Whitfield, Hickman, TN and died Sept 6, 1968 in Shelbyville, Shelby, Indiana. Wesley married Wm. Ethel Butler July 25, 1925 in Obion Co, TN.Moved to Shelbyville Indiana in 1952.
Tennessee State Marriages, Jefferson Berry to Mattie Egine, Aug 24, 1884 Hickman, TN. Bondsman listed as S E Egine. I believe this Egine spelling is incorrect.
Jefferson is listed on the previous page of this same census, living with parents James and Eliza Unknown, siblings, George, Catherine, Jack and James. Jefferson born Jan 1860, single. Some census' say 1862 MO.
Martha 'Mattie' and Jefferson apparently died after 1900 and before 1910, because Rose, James, Thomas and Wesley were living with William A Russell and family in 1910 Hickman, TN.
This is all the info I have on Martha 'Mattie'. Does anyone with the above surnames have a Martha 'Mattie' born 1863 ? TN and married to Jefferson or Thomas Berry in their family tree?
