...
Another family of Berrys may be noted, to wit: Samuel J. Berry's family.
...
The Samuel J. Berry's family, mentioned above, was a direct descendant from either John or Andrew. Samuel J. Berry died some years ago, leaving a family of three sons, Madison, Wilson and Stephen, and perhaps some daughters ; he was a volunteer soldier in the Florida Seminole War, in a company from Marion, commanded by Captain and formed a part of the battalion commanded by Major W. W. Harllee. The writer procured a pension for Samuel J. Berry's widow, which she yet, if living, receives from the United States government. Samuel J. Berry was an unpretentious man, a quiet and peaceable citizen, honest to the cent, but little known outside his neighborhood ; his three sons, Madison, Wilson and Stephen, are of like character, honoring their departed father and perpetuating his name and many virtues. ;
