    • (1) Myers, Lorraine F., Brown, Stuart E., Jr. & Chappel, Eileen M., Some Old Families of Clarke County, Virginia, Berryville, VA, 1994, pp. 22-23:

      Sarah Berry (Will probated 11/__/1827), m. (1st) John Humphreys. His will dated 7/8/1775 was probated 3/4/1777, and the witnesses were Elizabeth McGuire ("late Elizabeth Berry") and Thomas Berry. The possibilities are that Humphreys was Capt. Daniel Morgan's First Lieutenant of Riflemen and was killed at Quebec on December 31, 1775. CARTMELL 102-3. Humphrey's personal estate included "1 surveyor's chain & compass" (WB 4/644). Sarah m. (2nd) 4/23/1789, William Stribling (ca. 1763, d. early in 1793), a Winchester merchant, and son of Taliaferro and Elizabeth Stribling of "Hopewell", Frederick County. William became an orphan prior to reaching the age of twenty-one and chose as his guardian his brother Francis who owned property adjacent to the founder's 191?? acre plantation near "Battletown".

      On 12/4/1811, Sarah conveyed land to the Berryville Academy Trustees. On the 5th of that year she conveyed to her son-in-law George Steptoe Lane (son of Joseph and Mary Newton Lane) all of the lots belonging to her in Berryville except those that had been sold (DB 40/36). Some time later, Sarah lived in Berkeley County where on 4/4/1814, she executed a Deed (DB 36/102). And in 1816 her daughter Dully executed a Deed in Berkeley County. Sarah executed her will on 10/16/1823 when she was living in Butler County, KY. She owned 1000 acres in Green River, KY. Lane was Administrator, c.t.a. of her estate, his sureties being Jacob R. Nicklin and Joseph M. Nicklin. In Sarah's will mention is made of a lease of land made to her by Joseph and Reuben Berry. She had tried to collect on this lease but failed. . . .

      [Children:]

      [i] Elizabeth ("Betsy") T. Stribling (b. Winchester ca. 1790), m. 6/14/1810 George Steptoe Lane (d. 1843 intestate. His wife died before him - intestate). On 10/8/1831, when Lane was Postmaster, the name of the post office (established in 1799) was changed from Battletown to Berryville. Grace Episcopal Church records show that Lane, his sons Benjamin and Joseph, and Mark Nicklin are buried in Lot 38. . . .

      [ii] Dulcibella ("Beller") Wilhelmina Stribling (b. Winchester ca. 1792, d. after 1817), m. Edward Beeson, probably a member of a prominent Berkeley County family. On 1/10/1816, Dulcibella W. Stribling of the County of Berkeley conveyed land in what is now Clarke County to George McCormick (DB 38/213). And on 4/19/ 1817, Dulcibella stated that she was satisfied with the settlement of her father's estate "being the only party concerned with it".

      (2) According to Mike Marshall , this Sarah BERRY was a daughter of a different Benjamin BERRY, namely, the one who (i) was a son of Joseph BERRY and Mary FAIRFAX, (ii) was born in about 1747 in Frederick County, VA, and (iii) died in 1814 in Allen County, KY.
