MARY E. DERRY, b. 1874. d. ????. A daughter of John H.-1853.


Bob Cope, g-grandson of Mary E. Derry writes:


"Hi, Doc
I've been doing some research trying to rebuild my family tree with some sources and other documentation.
This is what I have come up with on the Derry Family and believe me some of these census takers failed penmanship and spelling terribly.  I finally got a list of the family when I found the Derrys in the 1900 census under Deary."


"From my Grandmother's Bible:"
Mary E. Derry was born April 13, 1874 and died September 6, 1933 in Doniphan, MO.
