Would love to exchange information with anyone having BERRY
family connections in Russell County or any knowledge of the
family. In 1850 household 783 was that of Charles Berry, whose
background I think I know. By 1860 he had moved to Pike County,
AL. I suspect that household 782 had his brothers John (age 36)
and Edward (age 25) and others. It is thought their mother may
have been named Zilla Berry.
