95 iv. THOMAS W. TERRY, born abt 1828 at Southampton, Bucks, Pennsylvania; died Aug 1877 at Bensalem, Bucks.156 He served in the Civil War.157

96 v. SARAH ANN TERRY, born 28 Oct 1830 at Southampton, Bucks, Pennsylvania and died 1919; buried158 at Beechwood Cemetery, Hulmeville, Bucks. She married159 (1) 17 Nov 1853 at Newtown, Bucks William Dunford, Jr. of Bensalem, Bucks.160 He was born 1830 and died 1874; buried161 at William Penn Cemetery, Philadelphia. (4 children) She married (2) ____ Bridemon162.

29. David Terry (Thomas4 Thomas3 Jasper2 Thomas1) was born abt 1775 of Moreland Twp, Montgomery, Pennsylvania. He does not appear in the 1790-1820 censuses of Pennsylvania. It is widely believed without proof (viz. FamilySearch Family Tree, Ancestry trees and other sources) that this David married Sarah Doran of New Jersey, but this is almost certainly wrong.163 David, the son of Thomas4, clearly has disappeared from Pennsylvania, but then perhaps shows up in the Carolinas? There was a David Terry resident in Craven County in the 1800 census164 that was the right age to be the son of Thomas Terry and Olly Davis. There is no documentary proof for this. There are other possibilities, but they are less likely.

In some way, we must deal with the fact that John Thomas Terry was born 22 Mar 1800 at New Bern, Craven, North Carolina and he was shown by Y-DNA analysis to be a descendant of Thomas Terry of Bucks (b. 1653).

Alternatively, John Thomas Terry could be a grandson of William Terry b. 1724 (m. Rachel Manson), although Y-DNA analysis disfavors this possibility.165 There are already two other descendants of William Terry—common ancestor John Terry (1760-1842), son of William—that have been proven to be descendants of Thomas Terry of Bucks by Y-DNA analysis.

‘David’ and Mrs. Terry had at least one child.

97 i. JOHN THOMAS TERRY was born 22 Mar 1800 at New Bern, Craven, North Carolina and died 31 Oct 1855; buried166 with his wife at Freeman Cemetery, Troup, Georgia. He married Julia Brooks abt 1824. She was born 26 Aug 1807 at North Carolina and died 10 Apr 1863; also buried at Freeman Cemetery. John Terry was one of the first settlers of Troup County, Georgia.167 The 1850 Census of District 800, Troup, Georgia168 shows John Thomas (age 50) with wife Julia and eight children.
