The name of this person is shown as Altha in the 1880 census. Some other Terry research sources or genealogies show the name as Deatha. I wonder if this is from some inside family source, or from a misreading of the census entry? Most censuses report her as Altha, which could be the full name, or a short form of Dialtha/Dealtha. Her grave has Altha, but her death certificate says Althea. 1870 Federal Census, Murray County, Georgia, 23 July, Spring Place, page 7, Hse/Fam #49 Terry, William 60 M W Farmer $6000 Real Estate $60 Personal b SC Cannot write Terry, Julia A 49 F W Keeping House NC Cannot read or write Terry, Althia 11 F W GA Cannot read or write 1880 Federal Census, Murray County, Georgia, 24 June, McDonald (1013th District), Enumeration District 155, page 30B, Hse #263, Fam #272 Terry, William W M 69 Farming SC SC SC Terry, July Ann W F 58 Wife Keeping House NC NC NC Terry, Altha W F 21 Daughter Keeping House GA SC NC 1900 Federal Census, knox County, Tennessee, 30 June, Knoxville Ward 11, District 72, page 39A, Hse #745, Fam #779 King, William B Head W M Aug 1857 42 Married 17 year TN TN TN Carpenter Owns King, Altha Wife W F June 1854 40 Married 17 year 4 children/4 living TN TN TN King, Clarence Son W M -- 1882 17 Single TN TN TN At School King, Charley Son W M Feb 1884 16 Single TN TN TN Office Boy King, Oliver Son W M Oct 1885 14 Single TN TN TN Newspaper Boy King, Forist [Forrest] Son W M Oct 1888 11 Single TN TN TN At School King, -- Mary Neace [Niece] W F May 1895 7 Single TN TN TN At School 1910 Federal Census, Knox County, Tennessee, [no date], Knoxville Ward 11, District 100, page 30B, 1033 Alexander St, Hse #565, Fam #590 King, William B Head M W 52 Married 21 yrs TN VA TN Carpenter Rents King, Altha Wife F W 50 Married 21 yrs 5 children/4 living GA SC NC King, Oliver H Son M W 24 Single GA TN GA King, William F Son M W 21 Single GA TN GA 1920 Federal Census, Knox County, Tennessee, 9 January, Knoxville Ward 11, District 99, page 10B, 1037 Alexander St, Hse #202, Fam #234 King, William B Head Owns M W 63 TN VA TN Carpenter King, Altha Wife F W 60 GA SC NC Tennessee, Deaths and Burials Index, 1874-1955 Althea Terry King Birth 10 Jun 1859 Georgia Age 63 Death 6 Aug 1922 Knoxville, Knox, Tennessee Burial 8 Aug 1922 Greenwood Cemetery Married, Occupation Housewife Father's Name William Terry, Birth Georgia Mother's Name Julia Roberts, Mother's Birth North Carolina Altha Terry King Birth Jun. 10, 1859 Murray County, Georgia Death Aug. 6, 1922, Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee Daughter of William Barney Terry 1810-1890 & Julia Ann Roberts b 1822 Wife of William B King Children Oliver H King (1885 - 1912) Burial Greenwood Cemetery, Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee Maintained by Cindy, Originally Created by dhintx Sep 21, 2011 -- Find A Grave Memorial #76895603, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=76895603

This child does not appear in the 1870 census. If he was born in 1860 as a couple of sources show, then it was after the 1860 census. No further information was known for years, and I surmised that he died before the 1870 census, unless he was living with relatives, where I have not located him yet.
Date of birth from SS Death Index, 8 Jun 1889, though an exact date, differs from the month and date given in the 1900 census: Aug 1889. This census month agrees with information from Arthur's sister, Jennie, in the exact birth date of 6 August 1889. Arthur's gravestone in Marlow Cemetery gives only the year of birth and death, August 1889. 1900 Federal Census, Murray County, Georgia, McDonald, District 71, Page 5B, House #86, Fam #89 Terry, Arthur Son M W Aug 1889 10 single GA GA NC At School In 1910, Arthur is still on the farm with his parents. The 1930 census gives us the information of when he was married. In 1930 we are told that Arthur married when he was 22 years old and his wife Lela was 20. That would be about 1912. In 1930 their daughter Joan P is 6 years old. That would make her born about 1923. 1917 -- We learn a lot from Arthur's WWI Draft Registration, filled out in June 1917: Arthur Wiley Terry b 6 August 1889, Dalton, Georgia Draft objections: "Religious conscientious scruples" Farmer, address Marlow, Stephens, Oklahoma Tall, Brown eyes, Dark hair Registered in Richland Precinct 1, Stephens, Oklahoma, 15 June 1917 First of all we find he states his town of birth, which I have not seen before in any source. This was the first source for any town of birth for any of Thomas Duncan and Mattie's children. The town is Dalton, which is in Whitfield County, Georgia, not Murray. Murray County is the only location in Georgia I otherwise find associated with the Terrys. Dalton is about 4 or 5 miles into Whitfield form the Murray County line. I found that Whitfield County was created out of the original Murray County, which was itself a creation in 1832 out of Cherokee County. I do not have enough information about the specific location of the Terry family to know if some of the children besides Arthur were born in territory that was actually by that time designated as Whitfield County. In each census they are reported as living within Murray County. In 1920, Arthur is no longer farming, as reported in his WWI Draft Registration in 1917, but both he and Lela are working in the town of Marlow. He is in a grocery store while she is a sales person in a dry goods store. 1920 Federal Census, Stephens County, Oklahoma, 29 January, Marlow, District 257, page 14A, Hse #467, Fam #578 Terry, A W Head M W 30 GA GA TX Salesman, grocery store Terry, Lela Wife F W 26 TX TN TX Saleswoman, Dry goods store Note that Arthur's mother is reported as born in Texas, not North Carolina. The 1930 census, where Arthur first is married, reports his as 35, only 5 years older than the 1920 report.. The census, taken in April 1930, would make him born in 1894. According to the 1900 census and the family information, Arthur's age in April 1930 should have been 38 or 39. Likewise his wife's birth year differs from that reported on her gravestone in the Marlow Cemetery. Lela is reported as 33 years old, which would make her birth year 1896, but her grave says she was born in 1893. That makes a 3-year gap. According to the birth date on her gravestone, Lela should have been 36 or 37. 1930 Federal Census, Stephens County, Oklahoma, 18 April, Richland, District 22, page 10A, Hse #181, Fam #182 Terry, Arthur W Head M W 35 married at age 22 GA GA NC Terry, Lela Wife F W 33 married at age 20 TX TN USA Terry, Joan Daughter F W 6 OK GA TX 1940 Federal Census, Stephens County, Oklahoma, 4 April, Marlow Ward 1, District 69-18, page 3B, 207 North 2nd, Hse #58, Owns $1000 Terry, Arthur Head F W 50 Married Grade H4 b Georgia Denton, Comanche Co OK in 1935 WPA TImekeeper [b abt 1890] Terry, Lela Wife F W 47 Married Grade H4 b Texas Denton, Comanche Co OK in 1935 Housework [b abt 1893] Terry, Joan Wife F W 16 Single Grade H2 b Texas Denton, Comanche Co OK in 1935 Housework [b abt 1924] SSDI Broderbund Archive #110, Vol. 2, Ed. 6, and online version Arthur Terry b 6 Aug 1889 d Oct 1968 Last Residence Marlow, Stephens, Oklahoma SSN 440-22-1427 issued Oklahoma (Before 1951) Marlow (Oklahoma) Cemetery List Terry, Arthur W 1889 - 1968 Lela 1893 - 1973 -- RootsWeb, http://www.rootsweb.com/~okstephe/MarlowCem2.txt The grave has only the year of birth and death.

There are discrepancies in the connections presented in different genealogies in the children of James Terry and Mary Diane Royall. I continue to investigate and attempt to clarify and verify. I note that the reported birth date of the first son Joseph in some sources would be too early to be correct, and thus I have suspicions that this Joseph is not the son of Benjamin M and Elizabeth Dickerson Terry. There is no son Joseph named in the will either, but he could have died earlier than the writing of the will. Though commonly reported in popular genealogies, it is not documented in historical records that Benjamin Terry was the son of James Terry and Diane Royall. Notes from some Terry researchers may be found in the Terry Family Historian newsletter. -- Terry Family Historian, http://www.terry-family-historian.com/SouthsideVA/Genealogy_and_Myth.htm U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900 Benjamin Terry Gender Male Birth 1704 VA Spouse Elizabeth Irby [Elizabeth Dickerson] Spouse Birth Year 1708 Marriage 1724 VA The reported year of birth differs in various sources, compilations and descendant applications to the Sons of the American Revolution, from 1700 to 1708.

We have a copy of the original handwritten entry in the Record Book. This is an entry by a Clerk of the original will presented to the court by Benjamin's sons Nathaniel and Benjamin. The date of the will was 28 December 1760. It was probated on 26 September 1771, placing Benjamin's death some days before this. The name of Benjamin's wife as Elizabeth Irby is controversial. It is reported this maiden name is written in by another later hand. It would be unusual for the wife to be referred to by her maiden name in the will. In appointing executors at the end, she is Eliz. Terry. Note that Ben appoints his wife Elizabeth along with two sons as executors. Elizabeth's death is reported as occurring in 1760, so not long after this will was written. The two sons Nathaniel and Benjamin are appointed as executors at Ben's death in 1771. --------------------------------------- Will of Benjamin Terry Sr As entered into the official record book by the Clerk, from the original -------------- In the name of God Amen I, Benjamin Terry Senr. of Pittsylvania County and Parish of Camden being In my Perfect sinces and memory thankes be to god for the same But Considering the Fraility of this Life and the uncertainty of Death I do make and ordain this my Last Will and Testament Disannuling all other wills by one made Either by word or Wrighting and this only Is to be taken for my Last Will and Testament.

I have added paragraphing between the sections for the heirs and in the probate statement to ease reading. There was very little punctuation in the original, a couple of periods and commas, which I have kept. I have kept original capitalization, which was artistic and whimsical in this era. Note that various words are spelled differently in different places. Spellings of some words also give clues to the pronunciation of the dialect at that time. OBJ --------------------------------------- There has been some confusion over the maiden name of Benjamin Terry's wife. She is commonly listed as Elizabeth Irby. Some researcehrs comment that the will was torn and no maiden name for Elizabeth occurs, but the name Irby had been written in by another hand. Here is a great discussion about some common problems in reconstructing details about Benjamin and Elizabeth. --------------------------------------- Genealogy vs Mythology By Margie Brown a descendant of Nathaniel and Sarah Royall Terry I would like to address three problems with the Terry information that is usually available about Nathaniel Terry & the Terry genealogy. The great pictures of the MEMORIAL stones submitted for the Terry Cemetery.and transcribed inscriptions and photographs used with permission of the contributor is appreciated. The TERRY genealogy has nothing to do with the contributor. The contributor just copied what was there. The article below will site the documents listed at the bottom of this article for your easy reference. 1st. problem: Nathaniel Terry [Sr] did not have Revolutionary War service. The stone that was put in place in 1939 in what was then The Thompson Cemetery, was awarded by the Federal Government for Nathanielâs [Sr] service in the French and Indian War. The revolutionary War service that is cited, is for the service of his son Nathaniel D. Terry [Jr]. Nathaniel D. Terry and his wife Ann (Thompson) left Halifax county circa 1822 and went to Todd County, Ky., where he received a pension for that service, he dying testate in 1837. His widow Ann (Thompson) received a widows pension #W-3054 on Nathaniel D. Terry [Jr], and continued to do so until her death in March of 1860. The Military Secretaryâs Office in a letter dated June 29, 1906, stated â Nothing has been found of record to show that any other soldier named Nathaniel Terry was a member of any organization of Virginia or Continental troops in service during the revolutionary war.â Nathaniel [Srâs] contribution to Halifax Co. and the Colony of Virginia is illustrious, he was born in 1724 and died in 1780, at the age of 56. In the twenty eight years that he was a resident of Halifax, he was sheriff in 1752, justice 1752 - 1780, member of the House of Burgessess 1758 - 1764 and again in 1769 - 1776 and the House of Delegates 1776 - 1778. His further exploits in the French and Indians Wars can be found in Henningâs Statues., he was commissioned as Captain of the Rangers while still a resident of Lunenburg County, and was the builder of forts across Halifax County, Fort Trial, Mayo Fort, Hickeyâs Fort and Blackwater Fort. 2nd. Problem: The placement of the pictured stone in 1939, was in the Old Thompson Cemetery. This property did not come into the Thompson family until after the 1806 estate settlement. In 1939 with Terrys being buried there, the DAR ladies made a reasonable choice and there was a Terry connection. Royall Terry, a grandson, [through the son William Terry] of Nathaniel and Sarah (Royall) Terry had married his first cousin, Susannah Foster Thompson, a daughter of James and his wife Mary (Terry) Thompson a daughter of Nathaniel and Sarah Terry. Susannah F. did not live long after the 1820 marriage, and died leaving one son James Edward Terry. At the death of Mary (Terry) Thompson in 1848 and James Thompson in 1854, Royall and his son continued to live on the Thompson property as James Edward inherited one third of the Thompson estate. James Edward Terry married 1849 in Campbell co, Va. Maria Agnes Bailey, and they were the parents of Elizabeth Terry married J. C. Epps, William H. Terry went to Texas where he married Jeffersonia Mc C ?? (unreadable), Edward Lewis Terry married Maud Tatum, Howson B. Terry married Effie Tatum, Robert C. Terry married Claudine Miller and Catherine D. Terry who married Charles A. Bates. (Terry Bible record). These are some of the Terryâs buried in the Thompson cemetery today. I will cite from the dower settlement after the death of Sarah (Royall) Terry in 1805. Halifax Co. Va. Plea Bk #24, pages 250 -259, for therein lie the clues of the original cemetery on Nathanielâs [Sr] Bannister River property and correctly identifies all of his children. My sincere hope is that someone interested in the true history of Halifax Co., and is familiar with the area, will find what might be the oldest cemetery in the county. The oldest son and heir-at-law at the time of the death of Nathaniel Sr. was William Terry and the only child mentioned in the 1780 Will. In 1806, after the death of Sarah Royall Terry, all of the children are named, Nancy Terry wife of Berryman Green, William Terry, Joseph Terry, Polly Terry wife of James Thompson, Robert Terry, Sarah Terry wife of Kibble Terry and the children of Elizabeth Dickerson Terry [deceased] wife of John Martin . After the division of the slaves, a division of the land was made, and a land Plat was included. William Terry [Plea Bk 24 page 256] received the first choice, and choose lot # 1 containing four acres and the dwelling house. This would have been the premier piece, ergo it had to be the value of the house. The other lots were from 80 acres to 45 acres. William Terry was born in 1749 and married in 1771 Susannah Thompson. William Terry was a Revolutionary War soldier, and at his death in 1810 was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates. His widow Susannah (Thompson) Terry collected a pension # W - 4196, and both she and William died testate in Halifax. Susannah lived until 1845 in the dwelling house chosen as first choice by her husband. At her death her sons Henry Terry (whose first wife was also a daughter of James and Polly Terry Thompson but left no issue by her) and Royall Terry who were the only surviving sons, entered into an agreement with Robert H. Spencer on the 19th May 1846 to wall the graveyard on that 4 acres. In August of 1846 [Deed Bk 51 p 430] they sold the property to Wm H. Clark. In this deed , line 27, âthe graveyard on the four acres excluded.â Signed by Royall Terry. From letters written by Green descendants in 1938 and 39, they admittedly did not know, almost 160 years later, where Nathaniel and Sarah were buried nor know their ages. Knowing that there were Terrys buried in the Thompson cemetery, they obviously decided to place the stones there. I do not fault them and I am glad they honored our ancestors, but that also has stopped the search for the true resting place. The first plat is from the Plea book 24 page 259, the second plat was done as a favor for me by Roger Dodson of Pittsylvania county, and his notes are self explanatory. For anyone who chooses to search for this old graveyard, it sits across Rt #360 from the home of the late Albert High. The two houses that sit very close together, are on the four acre tract. It appears that Rt. #360 coming up the hill from Terryâs bridge, did not cut into the tract but followed the old road, up the âteapot spout.â I do not know if there were ever stones in this cemetery and it would be overgrown and heavily silted after more than 200 years, and would needed to be probed for underground stones, but wouldnât it be wonderful if there were. I would imagine that a portion of the stone wall might be found, and be mistaken for the foundation of an old house. 3rd. problem: It is unlikely that the wife of Benjamin Terry who died in Pittsylvania Co. in 1771, was an Irby, and if she were, then she was not likely to be the mother of Nathaniel Terry Sr. The naming pattern of the descendants is exceedingly strong, and would indicate his mother was a Dickerson. Nathaniel Srâs daughter Elizabeth was Elizabeth Dickerson (Terry) Martin and she named a son William Dickerson Martin and lived in S.C. Berryman and Nancy (Terry) Green named a daughter Elizabeth Dickerson Green, they remained in Halifax. William and Susanna (Thompson) Terry named a son Dickerson Terry, they remained in Halifax. Nathaniel Dickerson and Ann (Thompson) Terry named a son Nathaniel Dickerson Terry, they moved to Todd co, Ky. James and Mary âPollyâ (Terry) Thompson named a daughter Elizabeth Dickerson Thompson, and had a grand-daughter Elizabeth Dickerson Thompson, they remained in Halifax. Robert and Nancy Hopkins (Smith) Terry named a son Nathaniel Dickerson Terry, they removed to Henderson Co., Ky. Kibble and Sarah (Terry) Terry, never had issue and Sarah died 1853/54 in Bedford Co., Tn. Joseph Terry married Sarah Coleman (Williams) widow of James Hill, and their son Joseph Coleman Terry married his cousin Elizabeth Dickerson Green, they remained in Halifax county. I do not know of one Irby Terry out of this Terry family. I do know that Benjamin Terry Jr. with wife Elizabeth Parker Terry had a grandson named William Dickerson Terry son of Obediah Parker Terry. I suggest that the mnemonic naming pattern is very strong in this family, that it would have been highly unusual to name a wife with her maiden name in a 1771 Will, that the original Will is no longer available, and that Charles Edward Terry a Kentucky descendant of Robert and Nancy (Smith) Terry, made notes in the late 1930âs that the original Will was torn, and there were additions made in a different handwriting, and only in the first portion of the Will, where âmy wife Elizabethâ ends the line, does it appear that someone has added the Irby. I will let each person make their own decision, but with lack of other evidence we should not assign a last name to her unless it includes âprobableâ. Even Mr. Eggleston, president of Virginia Historical Society, in 1941 has used "probably Irby," based on oral tradition out of southside Virginia, but that probably has been dropped and now repeated as a given. It is not, it is very questionable and as a descendant, I will use âprobably a Dickerson." The Terry Family Bible was purchased by Nathaniel Terry Jr. at the 1806 estate sale and was taken to Logan/Todd county, Kentucky. It was presented in Robertson Courthouse TN., as late as 1855. It is unknown where it is today, but a transcription from a grandson Robert Y. Lewis, is available at the TN State Archives. In the early part of the 1900âs a descendant out of one of the sons of Nathaniel Sr., who was from Virgina, mistakenly joined the SAR on the service of Nathaniel Terry Jr, whom he did not descend from, he named a Miss Smith as Nathaniel Srâs wife when Nancy Hopkins Smith was the wife of Nathanielâs son Robert, and continued on back to Benjamin Terry who died in 1771, naming apparent siblings of his greatgrandfather, James A. Terry and Diana Royall Terry as the parents of Benjamin. This has never been proven by any document and was done from family lore, but is often repeated. I am grateful for every bit of information left by descendants that came before me, even when it has proven incorrect, as it is that data that provides the building steps to get it right.

Caroline';s mother could have been Isom's first wife name Hughes (first name unknown). Or it could have been his second wife, Seatha/Ceatta Slone, whom he married before the 1860 census. In the 1860 census with Isom and Ceatta, Caroline is reported as 1 year old. We know from common census ages that this might mean she was over one year or not quite one year. She was probably born some time in 1859. Somewhere after the birth of the previous child Mary in about 1857 and the 1860 census, the Hughes wife died. 1860 Federal Census, Madison County, Arkansas, 3 July, PO St Paul, Hilburn Township, page 50, Hse/Fam #326 Isham Terry 26 M Farmer $0 Real Estate $15 Personal born KY Cannot read or write Ceatta Terry 29 F born KY Cannot read or write Caroline Terry 1 F born AR In the 1880 census, Caroline is in the household of her parents, reported as a widow under the name of Caroline Woodard. There is a marriage record for a Caroline Terry and George W Woodward, reporting their marriage in 1877. 1880 Federal Census, Johnson County, Arkansas, 5 June, Pilot Rock Township, District 88, page 6A (scan 260A), Hse #44, Fam #52 Terry, Isham W M 52 Farmer Cannot read or write KY KY KY Terry, Celia W F 37 Wife Keeping House Cannot write AR TN TN Woodward, Caroline W F 20 Dau Widowed Helps work on farm AR AR AR This appears, however, to be the same person named George Washington Woodward, who later married Caroline's sister Mary E Terry Self on 20 Aug 1881, after she was widowed. So how could Caroline be a widow in 1880? Was that just an error on the part of the enumerator? A George Woodard is living next door to Terry, Celia and Caroline in 1880. George matches Caroline's husband, but he is also reported as widowed. In George W Woodward's household is one widow Mary Self. This Mary appears to be Isom's daughter and Caroline's sister Mary E Terry (first husband Nathaniel Selph). But Mary Self is reported as a niece of George Woodard. I have not discovered the basis of that relationship. Complicating this, however, is the conflict of dates for Mary Terry, with the marriage record for Mary and George reporting their marriage on 20 Aug 1881, while the date of death of Mary Woodard's gravestone is 1 Apr 1881. But family sources report that this is the same Mary Terry Woodard, and her husband as George Washington Woodard. So were there two George W Woodwards? Was Caroline divorced instead of widowed?

But on the marriage record Presley's bride is named Mary Terry. But the date of marriage matches the 1910 census report that Caroline and Presley have been married for 28 years.

The census reports this is the first marriage for Presley and the second for Caroline. Caroline (spelled Carolina here) and her second husband Presley Bowman living only three houses away from George and Caroline's sister Mary. 1910 Federal Census, Johnson County, Arkansas, 7 May, Pilot Point Township, District 63, page 9B, Hogansville & Ft Douglas Rd, Hse #151, Fam #157 Woodward, George W Head M W 65 Marriage 4 Married 28 yrs [abt 1882] AR NC MO Farmer Rents [b abt 1845] Woodward, Sarah E Wife F W 63 Marriage 2 Married 28 yrs [abt 1882] 3 children/2 living AR MO MO [b abt 1848] This seems to confirm that George and Caroline were divorced. This means the report in 1880 that they were widowed was incorrect as surmised. And Mary Terry Selph does seem to have married George despite the fact that he and her sister Caroline had divorced. Gravestone of Presley and Caroline Bowman, Cemetery, Clarksville, Johnson County, Arkansas Bowman Father Press Aug 22, 1863 June 30, 1942 Mother Caroline Mar 25, 1859 Nov 8, 1932 It was originally thought that the cemetery is in Clarksville, Johnson County, Arkansas. The person posting the photos of the gravestone did not report what cemetery it was in! Death was reported as occurring in Clarksville. The memorial on Find a Grave clarifies this and fills the gap on some details, although it includes some factual errors as noted in brackets. Since no comment was made about the differences, I am assuming that these differences are not stated here as corrections to the carved dates in the gravestone but are just careless transcription errors. No photo of the gravestone is included with the memorial on Find a Grave. ------------------------------ Caroline Terry Woodward Bowman Birth Feb. 25, 1859 [Grave says Mar 25] Kentucky [family facts indicate she was born after the family was living in Madison County, Arkansas, as reported in the 1860 census when she was 1 year old and the 1880 census.] Death Nov. 8, 1932 First Husband, George W.
