Re: ascendants of John Berry
I found that the "Green Berry" from Coffee Co in 1850 is actually a "Berry Green" (and yes, Green is definitely the surname.
However, I have now located my William Berry, marrying Micah Powel in Rockingham Co, NC in 1819. I found there is also a Green Berry getting married there (to "Anney Harrison") in 1828. So perhaps there is indeed a brother named Green.
Does any of that tie into someplace in your Berry family research?
