      deposition which he made 19 April 1748 at Fairfax County Court (being then 57 years of age) in which he says that about twenty years of age Major Robert Alexander employed him to survey his land above Great Hunting Creek. There is a notation that the deponent Joseph Berry, lives "near King George Court House above 70 miles distant.
      It appears by the deeds above mentioned that Captain Joseph Berry is described as a planter of Stafford County and he is joined in these conveyances by his wife Catherine. Entries in the St. Paulís Parish Register (prior to 1777 this parish was a part of Stafford County) show that he resided in that Parish and later moved to the adjoining county of King George where he also owned property.
      On 29 December 1725 Joseph Berry of Stafford County, Planter, sold to Andrew Harrison of Westmoreland County and RichardGriffin of King George County, planter, for 4000 pounds of tobacco, all his right, title and interest in a certain millon Dodge Run in King George County and a small parsel of land adjoining thereto. This deed was recorded at King George Court 7 January 1725/6
      The mill seat, which is the same as that mentioned in the will of William Berry, was the subject of a dispute many years later.

      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.
