Joshua Berry Jr.and Anna Thorpe were married Cica 1819.
In the 1850 Census Anna was listed as being born in North Carolina but her family has not been located at the time of this writing. Joshua and Anna were in Gallia Ohio, Raccoon Township in the 1830 Census.Their oldest son Lewis was born in Ohio in 1826. In the 1830 census of Gallia County Ohio Isaac Rutherford was living next door to Joshua and five farms away there was a James Thorpe and his family.There is a very good Chance that James Thorpe was Joshua Berry’s brother in law. James was listed in the 30 to 40 age bracket an Anna Thorpe Berry was age 30.
Joshua Berry and his family lived in Ohio for at least 17 years because all of their children were born there according to the Boone County Indiana, Census where they were living in 1850.
Apparently Joshua and his family only lived in Indiana for a short time because in 1854 he was in Benton County Iowa. The family was still living in Benton County Iowa in the 1860 census but has not been located in the 1870 Census Joshua died on May 29th 1879 at the age of 78 years, 1 month and 14 days old. Joshua is buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Canton Township, Benton County Iowa. The man on the left in the picture above may be Joshua Berry Jr. and two of his sons. The Gentleman in the center is William James Berry and the one on the right would be either Lewis, Harrison, or Robert Berry
