Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness! Is there a posibility that we are going to match up?!
Benjamin Almerry (this is the way we spell it in the family and the name has been handed down in many generations as Almerry - however, it has also been listed in census as Alberry. If it is the same man he shows up in Iredell County, NC about 1800 and purchased land - never could find where he came from. Benjamin married Sarah Gracey the daughter of Patrick and Rebecca Barnett Gracey about 1780. their daughter, Cynthia married Pleasant Jackson Cashon about 1801 in Iredell County, NC - Benjamin lived in Burke also. There may have been another daughter though we have no proof except a census listing two females. I rather think if there was another daughter she died young. Pleasant's father moved to Tennessee and about 1813 Pleasant moved his family, including Benjamin and Sarah to Sumner County, Tennessee. I believe that is where Benjamin and Sarah died, but as I said the Benjamin and Almerry has come down through the family. I will be so happy to exchange information with you. You don't know how long I have looked for Benjamin and what a dead end most of them have been!
