Thanks to Beth Johnston for this great bible entry :)
This was among my grandmother's possessions when she died. Brackets indicate where I've inserted a word for clarity; otherwise, weird spellings and all, this is typed as written. There are two pages to it. Somewhat confusing is that there are three Berryman Smiths who either were born or lived in Fountain County. Berryman 1 was born in Virginia but moved to Fountain County and died there. He is not mentioned in this bible account, but because his son (Berryman II) and grandson (Berryman III) are listed that way for my record-keeping purposes I thought I'd mention him.
Berryman and Nancy's first child, James Smith, was my 2ggrandfather.
