Sally Berry & Elijah Thurman

 3.

Sally Berry  3  (John2, John1)  daughter of John Berry and Edith Ann Polk, was born c1790 in South Carolina *

She married  Elijah Thurman
While all researchers agree that his name was indeed Elijah, some show him as H. Elijah and others shown him as Elijah J. Thurman.

Other researchers have shown that both  Sally and Elijah are deceased by 1855, but I have found no official record of  their deaths.  That deduction probably comes because they are not found in the 1860 census of Mississippi.

Elijah is enumerated in the 1820 Marion Co Mississippi  federal census   Census Image
It appears they have 5 children under the age of 10, and they are both under 26 years of age
3 m under 10 
1 m 16-26 
2  f under 10
1  f 16-26 

I have been unable to locate Elijah and Sally in any Mississippi census records for 1830. The only Thurman I can find in 1830 is Philip Thurman, age 70-80 in the Claiborne Co census.

State census index shows Elijah in the 1837, 1841, and 1845 in Simpson Co Mississippi 

They are enumerated in the 1840 Simpson Co Mississippi

One researcher makes note:  H. Elijah Thurman:  Served in Civil War:  36th MS Infantry  Lauderdale and Simpson Co However, noting the age, I would think it might more likely be Elijah, son of Hugh Thurman, and grandson to Elijah and Sally.
