I plan to publish my new book in two stages. I will first publish the First Edition so you can review, make suggestions, and corrections or just to keep. In phase two I will publish a Second Edition printed on archival paper for those who want a more complete list of our ancestors.
On the left above is a picture of a scale model that Benjamin Berry Henderson built from measurements taken from the other two pictures of Robert Berry’s plantation home at Fiddleton, Orange County, North Carolina. Robert Berry built this home only 15 years after he settled in the wilderness of North Carolina in 1751 and ten years before the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776. The square footage was about three times that of an average settlers cabin at that time.
