JOEL S. BERRY, farmer and breeder of Short-horns, etc.; P. O. North Middletown; is a, native of Bourbon County, and was born Feb. 24, 1830. His great-grand parents were of English birth. His grandfather Bazil Berry, and his son Benjarnin, migrated from Maryland, their native state, about the year 1790, and settled in Bourbon County, Ky. Benjamin was born at Hagerstown, Maryland, in 1772, and was first married, shortly after his arrival in Kentucky, to Miss Bowen, a sister of Benjamin Bowen who is well known in the northern part of this County. By this marriage there were ten children. He next married Elizabeth Gault, of Chambersburg, Penn.; the result of this union was two children, one daughter Amanda, who is now the wife of Dr. N. Cannon, of Scott County, Ky., and one son, Joel S. who is the subject of our sketch. He remained at the homestead and assisted his father in the duties of the farm until his father's death, which occurred on the 3rd of April, 1847. Joel was educated at the country schools in his immediate neighborhood, and on the 6th of January 1853, was married to S. Kate, daughter of John Butler, a native of Virginia. This union was blessed with nine children, two dying in infancy. There are living two sons, Walter G., and James Patterson, and five daughters, Alice M., who is now the wife of C. W. Cannon or Missouri, L. Florence, Carrie W., Sallie K., and Annie L. On Sept. 10, 1878, Mr. Berry lost his wife, and on Feb, 1, 1881, was again married, to Miss Mary K. Ware, who was born in South Carolina, but raised in Atlanta, Ga., by an uncle. She was one of the ladies that were sent from that city by Gen. Sherman in 1864, under his general order, that all the women and children should leave the city, that were able to do so. Mr. Berry has been speculating in short-horns for twenty-five years, and for the past few years has been a successful breeder of the same.. He has also been a breeder of trotting and saddle horses and Cotswold sheep for the past twenty-eight years. Mr. Berry owns 380 acres of land, is one of the representative farmers of his county; has always been a very active and energetic man and ever alive to the progress and advancement of his end of the county. He was instrumental in building the North Middletown and Winchester, and North Middletown and Owingsville Pikes; was for fifteen years, President of the first named road, and for two years President of the other. Mr. Berry was also one of the principal laborers in getting up the stock, and effecting the organization of the North Middletown Deposit Bank, in 1869 ; he has been a director of the same since its first organization, and in January, 1881, was elected President of that institution, a position he still occupies. He has been a prominent member of the I.O.O.F., and was one of the charter members of Williams Lodge, No. 113, at North Middletown, and was the first member to pass through all its chairs. Mr. and Mrs. Berry and his five eldest children, are all members of the Christian Church, in which he has filled the, office of Deacon for many years. Politically he belongs to the dominant party of his State, and is ever ready, at State or national elections to cast his ballot with the Democratic party.

Fifth Generation


Family of Eliza Jane TUCKER (9) & Charles OWENS

14. Mary Jane OWENS.
On October 13, 1868 Mary Jane married George W. BRYAN Jr., son of George W. BRYAN Sr. (1815-1849) & Elizabeth A. W. MILLER (1815-1886). Born on July 19, 1848.
GEORGE W. BRYAN, [3] lawyer and Police Judge of Millersburg; P. O. Millersburg. The Bryan family, as settlers of Bryan's Station, and from their close connection by marriage with Daniel Boone, bore no unimportant part in the early history of Kentucky. Daniel Boone, in 1755, when about twenty years of age, married Rebecca Bryan, whose family, as well as Boone's, were living at that time near Wilkesboro, N. C. On Sept. 25, 1774, Boone with his family emigrated to the country which he had previously (in 1769) explored as far as the Kentucky River, and thither Morgan, James, William and Joseph Bryan, brothers of Boone's wife, shortly followed with their famihes. They shared with the other adventurous spirits all the dangers and hardships to which they were subject. In 1779, with emigrants principally from North Carolina, these four brothers settled the Bryan Station neighborhood, and built the fort that is now historic. It would require much space to recount the narrow escapes of these famihes from the murderous tomahawks of the lurking, skulking savages, or the personal deeds of prowess and heroism and the struggles and privations of these brave men and women. From Joseph Bryan are descended the family now residing in Fayette County. This branch spell their name with a "t," and in this way Bryan’s Station has been and is improperly called Bryant's Station. From Morgan Bryan are the Bourbon County family; he was born May 20, 1729, and married MaryForbes. From this marriage sprang George Bryan, sr., who fought in the Revolutionary war, and at the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. He emigrated with his father from North Carolina, and was married in the fort at Bryan's Station to Elizabeth Neal Rogers, in May, 1780, being the first marriage solemnized in the State of Kentucky. Roasted corn was handed around to the wedding guests in lieu of cake, and mush and milk took the place of ices on this and similar occasions. He was married a second time fifty years later, to Mrs. Cassandra Miller, and died upon the 22d day of November, 1845, in Springfield, Ill. A singular incident concerning Mr. Bryan’s life is the fact that he suffered from a severe attack of whooping cough when over eighty years of age. To his wife, Mary, was born William S., March 17, 1785, at Bryan's Station. He was one of the first settlers of the City of Paris, where he spent the greater part of his life. He was by occupation a saddler and harness-maker, and amassed quite a fortune by strict attention to business. "Uncle Billy," as he was familiarly called by his acquaintances, was always ready to assist a friend in need, and at his death the majority of his estate had gone to pay surety debts. He married Judith Field, Jan. 25, 1811, and to them were born three sons: William H, Geo. W. and Robt. T., and a daughter, Eliza; Wm. H., the eldest son, married a Miss Bartlett, of Louisville, Ky.; by her he had two daughters-Blanche and Florence. He was a merchant in New York, Millersburg, Louisville, and Chicago, where he now resides with his family; Eliza became the wife of Frank Tucker, of Bourbon County, and died without issue shortly after marriage; Robt. T., the youngest son, graduated in the classical department of Bethany College, Va., in 1844, and in the medical department of the University of New York in 1848. He married a Miss Kenney, of Bourbon County, in 1849; by her he had one son, Robt. K., a dentist by profession, in Georgetown; he married a second time in 1853, to a Miss Mary E. Offutt, of Fayette County; by her he had three children: Frank, who is associated with his father in the practice of medicine at Georgetown, Ky.; George and Ella, who married Wm. S. Rogers, of Fayette County; George W. Bryan, the second son of Wm. S. Bryan, was born Aug. 23, 1815, and married Elizabeth A. W. Miller, Jan. 15, 1839; he was a merchant in New York and Millersburg, principally in the latter place; he identified himself and his interests with the house of his adoption, and after a useful and an honorable career, died of Asiatic cholera on the 8th of Aug., 1849. He had three children; the two older died young; Geo. W., the youngest, was born July 19, 1848: he graduated in the classical department of the Kentucky Wesleyan College, in 1869, and the law department of Columbia College, New York, in 1872; he is a lawyer by profession; has been elected Police Judge of his native town (Millersburg) three consecutive terms. He has twice traveled over the European countries. He and family are the only representatives of their branch of the Bryan family in Bourbon County. He was married to Miss Mary E. Owens, daughter of Charles and Eliza J. Owens, on the 13th day of October, 1868.
