Van Gundy Family Tree


Notes for Eliza McMahan BERRY


Family lore says the New Salem, IL, store where Abraham Lincoln met Ann Rutledge was owned by a Berry relative of Eliza.

1822 She inherited $10 from her Grandfather Berry's estate.

Her side of the gravestone reads:

"Our labor's done, securely laid
In this our last retreat
Unheeded o'er our silent dust
The storms of earth may beat."
