Re: Beery Family History;ohio
I have an original copy of "Beery History" by Joseph H. Wenger, South English, Iowa.. Unfortunately it does not have the first title pages intact. I think it is of 1911. If some one could send me a copy of those first pages, I would appreciate it. It does have a dedication page that says "This history os dedicated to the descendants of Nicholas Beery No. 1, who manifested a very active part in furnishing me...
The next page is the Introduction -- not numbered.
Part One -- Nicholos Beery -- No. 1 First Genration.
begins on page 13.
Part Second -- A Genealogy of the North Carolina Beerys begins on page 441. This is dated 1911.
Part Third -- History of Jacob and Christian Beery begins on page 454.
Parts of the last page, 495,496 is torn away.
I also have Judith Garber Beery's book, but find it does not cover the descendents of Christian Beery adequately. Before her death, I enjoyed corresponding with Judith about our more recent findings concerning the Christian Beery (1792) group.
Phyllis Fulk and Lois Brown Miller, in 1976, published "History of the Beery Family of Page County, Iowa", Evans Press, Newport, Ark.
It has excellent data on the Christian Beery descendents.
On page 254, a number is shown incorrectly for Solomon Forest Beery (1846-1905) The number should be "6-14-4-3".
Unfortunately, that third number, "4" is then omitted from all the descendents of that line.
I plan to attend the Fairfield County Ohio Beery reunion on July 6 and will bring these books along for referrence or will be happy to check for specific information if any of you cousins would like that assistance.
Thank you all for the good information you share.
