      Note:
      There are separate deeds of land in King George County from Joseph Berry, Jr., to Benjamin Berry, to Charles Carter, under the date of 1758. These tracts adjoin that of each other and land of Enoch Berry. They lie on the north side of the Rappahannock River. These deeds show that this land was inherited from their father, Joseph Berry, Sr., by will, 1749, who inherited it from his father, William Berry, and wife, Margaret Doughty; who inherited it from Margaret's father Enoch Doughty, who inherited it from his father, Rev. Francis Doughty.

      In 1758, a Joseph Berry and a Benjamin Berry arrived in the Shenandoah and established Berry's Ferry. This later became Berryville. They are believed to be the same Joseph and Benjamin Berry. Capt. Thomas Berry's descendants (he lived in the Shenandoah) state that he was their youngest brother, and that their family seat had been "Berry Plain," King George County, Virginia. There is no definite record of the last names of the wives of Capt. Joseph Berry, Sr.; Joseph Berry, Jr.; or Benjamin Berry.
