The Perez, Rish, Herron, Berry Families of West Columbia, SC

Updated December 23, 2003

About Our Family Research


I am still in search of many of my relatives with the above surname. Most of the info I have is regarding the Rish family. I am a descendant of John Rish who married Mary Rachel Dooley. I think they had a daughter named Luvinia who married James Moore Berry, and their son, Shelton married Sallie Herron, and their daughter Lillian, married Thomas Clarke, producing my mother, Greta Clarke who married my dad, Hilario Perez.

Anyone who has information on Sallie Herron's dad, Dan and his wife Barbra Herron, please let me know. Barbra died and Dan remarried...but, I cannot seem to find any info on them. Any help would be appreciated.
