This family is not one whom I have found to be easily traced, apparently Hugh and his wife died before the 1850 census, and thus I found several names in the 1850 and 1860 census unknown to me, but information shared from Rozier Dedwyler has given us the following information, along with the census records, and cemetery records I have found for these families.

They had at least 12 children, the known children of Hugh Berry are:
3-4 i. WILLIS BERRY3, born in 1830 in Mississippi, and died in 1863, probably while in the service of Co A 39th Inf. CSA, his burial in Eli Myers Cemetery, Simpson Co Mississippi
4-4 ii. ABSOLUM BERRY, born c1828, and apparently died before 1860
iii. ARCADA BERRY, born c1832
5-4 iv. FRANCES 'FRANKY' BERRY, born c1838, and died between 1870-80, burial in Eli Myers Cemetery, Simpson Co Mississippi in an unmarked grave
v. JOSEPH BERRY, born c1840 -I have been unable to locate him in Mississippi in 1860-
In 1850, a 20 year old William Berry is living in the home of John Briggs.    He may also be a child of Hugh Berry.

In 1870, I have read the entire Simpson and Lawrence Co census, and not found her or her children. I cannot imagine where Mary and her children were in 1870, unless they relocated for a few years after Willis' death, were missed in the census taking, or are enumerated with another family with their surnames changed in error
