The following research is accredited to Mike Terry from an article from the "1984 Terry Family Historian", which was published by Mike Terry. It was submitted by Hope Davis for publication to Sherri Schäefer Bagby in January, 2000. See full article under JAMES LAWRENCE TERRY. OUR FAMILY RECORD: RECORD OF JAMES LAWRENCE TERRY - SON OF JAMES TERRY, SON OF STEPHEN TERRY. My Grandfather Terry's name was Stephen. He was born in Louisa County, Virginia, about the year of 1758, and enlisted as a soldier in the Revolution when about seventeen years old. Was shot through the body at the battle of Brandywine, August 11th, 1777, when about eighteen years old. He lived however, until he was about sixty years old. He died August 1820. I can just remember seeing him. He acquired considerable property, and was considered a well-to-do farmer. He was a very fine looking old gentleman. He moved from Virginia to Kentucky in 1809, or 10, and settled in Todd County, about three miles northwest from Nashville. Here he lived until his death. He married a lady by the name of MILDRED BAGBY, about the year of 1781 or 82. Of her family I know but little, only that she told me that all of her brothers but one were in the Revolutionary War. Her youngest brother, JOHN BAGBY moved to Barren County, Kentucky. I was at his house at various times during the years 1836 and 37, first in 1831. He was a fine looking old man. Had a large farm and a good many slaves. The family were originally from England, and settled in the colony of Virginia, but at what period I do not know. NOTE: The death dates of Stephen Terry in this article do not coincide with the death date given under Stephen Terry. The death date given to Stephen Terry of January 18, 1820, is taken from family Bible records. The above date seems to be from recollection of memory.
