Jemima Berry

Jemima Berry died before 1837 in Simpson, Mississippi. She married about 1800 to John Shivers, son of ---- Chivers/Shivers and ---- unknown ----. John was probably born in Anson County, NC. In 1800, William Shivers, John Shivers, Alexander Shivers, John Berry, Jr. and German Berry lived near each other in Chesterfield County, South Carolina, just across the border from Anson County, NC. The 1820 Census shows John Shivers and John Berry gone from Chesterfield County, Greenville, South Carolina and German Berry soon left also. John moved to what was then known as the Mississippi League, afterwards made into the State of Mississippi about 1816. They traveled in wagons and on pack horses but it is not known what route they took. John Berry, brother of Jemima, probably went with John Shivers on the migration as he is found in Marion County 1820 Census. John Shivers is listed with seven males and four females. He settled in the southern part of the state on a beautiful stream known as 'Silver Creek" in Simpson County, Mississippi, and there reared a family of five listed below. John and Jemima likely had other children as there is a John Shivers on the 1824 Tax Rolls of Marion County with only two in the family and one poll which indicates a young John Shivers.
