Chapter X

Greenberry Scalf

Greenberry Scalf, son of John Scalf and Edeah Carlisle Scalf, was born in 1809. Berry went through the same moving around during his childhood that his brothers experienced. Although, he along with six of his brothers were "bound out" or apprenticed to a Mr. Stephen Gose in 1820 in Russell County, Virginia, the author is reasonably certain that Berry was never actually removed from what the court order described as an unfit home. Berry married Rebecca Page in Washington County, Tennessee on November 17, 1831. He remained in Washington County until after 1850 as the 1850 Census shows Berry and his family living there. His children at that time included Jesse, Nathan, Martha J., Mark M., James, Andrew, William and Henry. Berry moved his family to Scott County, Virginia sometime after 1850 and by the time the 1870 Scott County Census was taken, it can be seen that three additional children had been born. These were Berry, Simpson and Doctor S. Living with Greenberry's family in 1870 were Matilda and Sarah Pierson who had married into the family. Berry, son of Greenberry, married Matilda Pierson in 1870. Between 1870 and 1875 Rebecca, Berry's wife, died. Greenberry remarried in 1875 in Scott County to the widow, Margaret Gilman. Berry was 65 and Margaret was 45 when they married.
