  Notice:     I   have  several persons who contributed to this work,  I have tried to verify it  all thru census records, but those prior to 1840, as well as
  maiden names of spouses, I cannot verify.  If you should have any other verification or documents  that prove this lineage in  any way, please let me
  know.    Searching census records, I believe I have identified  all of  the children  of John and Alise, and have  them all accounted for between 1830
  to 1880

  Note:  In  some  cases, when  the male head of  family  is not  listed in the census,  we 'assume'  he is  deceased, or when  he  has a spouse  with a
  different name,  we  assume the previous one is deceased,  but  we must  always remember the possiblity of divorce, which I am  finding more  and
  more prevalent in those times.      Susan BARLOW Holmes

John Jackson "Jack" Berry3    (John2, John1) son of John Berry and Edith Polk,  was born April or May 19, 1803 in South Carolina, and died  August 17, 1859
 
He married  Alise "Alcy" Miles  between 1825 -1827, probably in Alabama.

The daughter of William 'Hardy' Miles and Mary Powell, she was born October 15, 1807 in Tennessee, and died June 13, 1883

Both are buried in Strong River Cemetery, Pinola, Simpson Co Mississippi
*
  THE SIMPSON COUNTY BERRY PATCH  states  that  he died in  August, 1860, of  heart disease.
   Twenty-three days later Alise Miles Berry passed away at the age of seventy-five. 

  The  information for  Alise,  is incorrect, as she is enumerated in  the 1860-1880 census, and her death date has  been
  given to me as 1883 and 1884.

  Also from the Berry Patch, I find the following information, but have not verified, are the following notes:

  John  Jackson "Jack" Berry  became well known and respected in the county as he served in the Mississippi Legis- 
  lature for Simpson County in 1840 ~ 1844 ~ 1846 ~ 1857 ~ 1858.   The  new laws of  Mississippi were  just  published
  and was their guiding tools for the next few years.

  Some excerpts----

  "....that all that  portion of  Copiah County west  of  Pearl River shall form and  constitute  the county of Copiah; and all
   that portion of said county east of Pearl River shall form one county to be known by  the name of Simpson, in memory
  of the late honorable Josiah Simpson..."

  "...the county town in the county of Simpson, shall be known by the name of Westville, in memory of the late Col. Cato
    West...  Approved January 23, 1824"

  "...Acts for colored  persons  not to sell spirituous liquors,  not to be employed in printing offices, nor  to  keep houses
    of  entertainment,  not to act as  ministers of the gospel;  not to vend goods out of  the limits to town..."

  Alise was a granddaughter of William Miles, who died in Missouri, and the daughter of Hardy Miles, a famous Revolu-
  tionary  soldier who was  born in 1760,  and  died  at the age  of 74 in Rankin Co  Mississippi.  This was testified to by
  32 men,  including Colonel John Berry and his  brother-in-law's  William Gardner, and Simon Polk.  (Husbands of Mary 
  and Centilla Berry)
  Colonel John and Alise Berry lived near old Stonewall, where Mt. Zion Baptist Church is  located near Westville.

William H.  Berry4     (John3, John2, John1)  was  born c1826-27  in  Mississippi, died 1890 in Rankin Co Mississippi, burial in Steen Creek Cemetery, Florence Rankin Co Mississippi
He married 1.) Martha Courtney Kitchens    c1846
*
He married  2.) Martha Bishop,  after 1847.   She was born c1828, and probably died before 1870
*
He married 3.) Sarah S.  before 1870
*

As told by Mary Elizabeth Thurman Webb, gr-granddaughter of William H. (Bill) Berry was visiting relatives in Rankin County when he took ill and died. It was decided that he would be buried there due to the lack of refrigeration during that time.

While I cannot  verify  that William is indeed a child of Jack and Alise, or of his spouse' maiden names,  I will attempt to
verify his family. 

Family Circle:   Martha Bishop  is the daughter of John Bishop and Lucretia Taylor,  and sister to  Harriet E. Bishop who married William's brother, Denson Berry.   Also a sister of Elisha Bishop who married Louisa Berry, daughter of William Berry  and Sarah Boomer   and  to  Hinds / Hines Bishop,  said  to  have married  Susannah Berry,  another  daughter  of   William and Sarah Boomer Berry

Thomas James Berry  born January 12, 1863, and died July 05, 1863
 iv.  Robert Richard Berry born August 30, 1863 in Mississippi, was still living in his parents home in 1880
Apparently Sallie became pregnant immediately following the birth of Thomas, and had Robert into her 8th month
 v.  Benjamin Briley Berry  born  March 25,  1865  in Mississippi 

He married Addie Myers January 28, 1892

The 1870 census shows a Bennett Berry, age 1.  There is not a Bennett Berry shown in the Bible records, so I feel he  may be the same as Benjamin, but his age should have been 4-5 years old.  If he is not the same, then the question of where Benjamin was during that census is left to face.  I think most likely, this is Benjamin.

Eley / Mary A. Berry  born February 15, 1850, and died May 21, 1894, burial in Steen's Creek Cemetery, Rankin Co Mississippi.
In the 1850 census, Eley is shown, as age 3 mo. Since the census was taken in Oct, I would assume her to be born in August. However Eley is not in the census for 1860, instead Mary is shown, born c1848, so I am assuming them to be the same child. Dates from cemetery records conflict with both ages shown in census records.
