Richard Talley Berry and Martha Jane Wilkes
**
  Richard Talley Berry3    (John2, John1)  son of John Berry and Edith Polk, was born April 27, 1810 in South Carolina, and died
  December 25, 1894 in Lawrence Co Mississippi.

        He married  Martha Jane Wilkes  September 09, 1838 in Lawrence Co Mississippi.
        The daughter of  Stephen Hitchcock Wilkes and Mary McNeese, she was born in Alabama, on February 18, 1822 and died
        July 27, 1888.

Both are buried in Brady Cemetery, Near Prentiss, Lawrence Co Mississippi
**

  A  portion of  this lineage comes  from  the  book,  "Wilkes Family History and Genealogy",  by Ivan Ernest Bass, 1965, 
  whom I have been told is very well researched and very reliable, having been used by many family members as a key
  source for  entry into the DAR.  The  book has  many more interesting  facts,  such as their  education, occupations and
  places of residence, but because of copyright, I will not publish them here.  I  highly recommend it  for  those research-
  ing these lineages.

iv. Martha "Mattie" Russell  born October 29, 1877, and died August 28, 1883, burial in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Covington Co Mississippi.
 
Martha and Mattie must have been the same daughter.   She was probably like many others during this time and started using the name Mattie.  However, I did find in the cemetery listing a Martha F. Russell,  b. nd - d.  November 6, 1873, age 16,  daughter  of James & S. J. Russell.   If  the  date  is indeed the death date and not the birth  date, she could  not have been  their daughter.  She  would have  been the  daughter  of James Bassel  Russell's parents,  James & Sabra A.  Russell who are 
also buried in the cemetery.  (The difference would only be between the S. J. & the S. A.)  If the date for Martha F.  Russell was  her date of birth, there  could have been a  daughter named Martha and also a daughter named Mattie.  It does make  sense  that Sorena Jane would have named a daugh- 
ter Martha after her mother, Martha Jane Wilkes.
