David Terry married Charlotte Lynch of Greenville District,SC prior to 1819 as evidenced by her father William Lynch's will. David and Charlotte were still living in SC in August of 1831 as noted in probate records for her deceased mother, Mary Lynch.
David was apparently the son of Joseph Terry (d 1820) and Lucy Hatcher (d 1842). There are indications that David Terry left a will in Morgan Co., AL before 1843.
Found in Lawrence Co AL Book 15 , par 2 p 86 June Term 1847 COUCH Versus Terry's Admrs Wit. of error to Chancery sitting in Lawrence Co. AL
"Complaint alleges that on 15 Apr. 1839, Thomas J. Couch as principal and himself and William L. Couch and David Terry as sureties executed their writing obligatory by which they obliged themselves to pay to administators of estate of Daniel Johnson, Deceased, sum of 1,137.58. David Terry has died since the judgment was recovered" Drury Stonwall and Samuel M. McGughey have taken Letters.(Judgment was recovered on 19 Jan 1841).
I believe that Thomas J Couch and William L Couch are the sons of Thomas Couch and Elvey Lynch.Elvey Lynch was the sister of Charlotte Lynch.Samuel M McGaughey married Florentine Terry who appears to have been a daughter of David Terry and Charlotte.
From Greenville District, SC Probate Records Apt 6, Pkg 619, estate of Lucy Terry:
"Laurence County, Alabama. 26 October 1846. Samuel M McGauhey sells to William Fuller all his right and interest in the estate of the late Lucy Terry of Greenville District, South Carolina, in the right of the wife of the said Samuel M McGauhey who was Florantius Terry"
I believe the children of David Terry and Charlotte Lynch to have been: David Jr, William, Florentine, Angelina, Lucy H, Julian or Julina, and Lucinda or Cinderilla.I still need documentation for this belief though.
Can anyone provide more information on the children of David Terry and Charlotte Lynch?Are there any descendants researching this family?
Any help on documenting this couple and their descendants greatly appreciated.Thanks
