Individual Report for Simeon Berry, Son of Nancy Lincecum

Individual Report -SBerrySimeon Berry was a son of William Green Berry and Nancy Lincecum.  He was born between 1789 and 1804 in Georgia.  Simeon married Nancy Tabor about 1817 in Alabama.  He married again, 5 October 1848 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to Martha Hendrix.  Simeon died some time after 1859, possibly before the 1860 census.

I attribute nine children to Simeon and Nancy (Tabor) Berry:  William Green, Jane Caroline, Susan, George W., Oliver, Cary, Mary, Richard, and Malinda.
