New books about our Robert Berry family were published in September 2015. The name of the first book is “Our Berrys in Frontier America Revised and Updated” and the other book is named “Robert Berry Family Tree Index (300 Years and Seven Generations), (Second Edition)“. This book can be downloaded FREE from this web site.
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. The Plantation home also had wood floors and glass panes in the windows. Glass panes had to be transported by horseback from Jamestown,Virginia where Glass was being made at that time in our history or imported from England. Most of his neighbors had wooden shutters and no windows.
