    In 1880 there are four Terry households in a row, in Murray County,Georgia, where the family have lived for a couple of generations.They are living in McDonald Township.  Cyrus L Terry and wife "EmelyJ" live with their children in house #259, and are listed as Family#268.

    House #260/Family #269 are John R Terry and wife Catherine and family. House #261/Family #270 are William J Terry, age 36, and wife Martha Oand family.  There is one house between William and elder William, age69, and wife Julie Ann ("July Ann"), with other children in theirhome.

    In 1900 Cyrus is living next door to his brother Duncan (ThomasDuncan) still in Murray County, Georgia, and 4 houses down from hisbrother Joe (William Joseph).  This census included the month and yearof birth.  Cyrus' birth date is reported as Jan 1847, a year differentfrom the Terry Family source cited here.

    Most of the family remained where they were all their lives.  Onesister Mary married and moved to Whitfield County, Georgia.  Duncan,however, went west, like two other members of the Terry family.Duncan apparently moved straight to Marlow, Chickasaw Nation.  (Marlowbecame the county seat of Stephens County, Oklahoma, at the creationof the state in 1907.)

    Their cousin Duncan Lafayette Terry, moved to western Arkansas, thenacross the border in to Oklahoma. An uncle Joseph Lewis Terry went toNorth Texas.

    In 1910 Cyrus is reported in the census as Louis W.  In 1920 he alsoinexplicably appears as Louis W.

    Terry, Cyrus Son M W 25 Single GA GA GA

    Jennie's age reports and birth dates vary wildly in the sources.  Hereshe is age 29, but her birth date reported in 1900 was Oct 1876, andin the 1800 census she was reported as already 7 years old (born1873)!

    In 1920, we find for the first time (Cyrus) Louis is listed with someoccupation other than Farmer.  He is a merchant with a general store.His son Cyrus is the Farmer.

    Richard Bates, in his Terry Genealogy, reports that Cyrus Lewis (born1846) died 29 May 1925 in Murray County, and is buried in Hassler'sCemetery.  The 1930 census reports that Emily is a widow, living withher two sons Cyrus and William.

    In 1930 Cyrus Lewis Jr is still single and his widowed mother Emily isliving with him, still in the same location, living next door toEmily's son Grover C Terry and his family.  Cyrus and Grover's brotherWilliam O is also still single at 39 and living with Cyrus and Emily.
