In the beginning…


We will begin the story of the Terry Family with John Terry. John Terry was the owner of a plantation in Warren County, Georgia. He eventually bought a new plantation and moved to Marion County, Georgia. At a later date a portion of Marion County was renamed Schley County, Georgia. Moses (1839) and Hannah (1838) Terry were born in Warren County, Georgia and were slaves of John Terry. James (1830) and Mary (1834) Terry were born in South Carolina and were also slaves of John Terry. Moses and Hannah had 10 children and James and Mary had 16 children.
Louisa Terry was the daughter of Moses and Hannah Terry, and Reuben Terry was the son of James and Mary Terry. Louisa Terry married Reuben Terry, which explains the name Louisa TerryTerry. There is also a link between the two families through Taylor T. Terry and Victoria Terry. Our hope is to continue to research our history so that can share a precise and documented story. Read More
