G. TAYLOR BERRY - In the rich lands belt of northern Texas, located just outside the northern boundary of McKinney, county seat of Collin County, G. Taylor Berry operates a farm and maintains a fine old homestead. His grandfather, J. W. Berry, was a native of Kentucky who settled in Collin County, Texas, and was among the early pioneers here, came with his father to Texas and conducted, most successfully, a farm just west of McKinney, up to the time of his death in 1904. Member of the Christian church, a school trustee and all `round good citizen, Samuel R. Berry played his part as a soldier in the War Between the States, and married Mary Ellen Muse, of Virginia, granddaughter of J. M. Muse, a clergyman of the Campbellite church. She died in 1882, the beloved mother of seven children, four of whom survived her, including G. Taylor Berry, who was born six years before, on July 13, 1876.
Mr. Berry received a good education in the public schools of McKinney and Collin County and then worked with his father on the latter's farm which, as already noted, was located west of McKinney. After awhile he bought his own fine farm of sixty acres, situate about half a mile north of McKinney on the Highway No. 75. Most of this acreage is planted to cotton and corn, although Mr. Berry pastures and keeps some good livestock. His residence is one of the finest on this stretch of highway. Both here on the farm and in the nearby county seat, where he served for years on the School Board and where he is a member of the Woodmen of the World and a deacon in the First Christian Church, G. Taylor Berry is most highly regarded as a fine citizen and a good neighbor. He married, in 1908, Leva Hearne, daughter of Mr. And Mrs. B. F. Hearne, old timers here. The Berrys have four children: 1. Nova Mae Berry, now Mrs. D. L. Turentine of McKinney. 2. Louise Berry, now Mrs. Carl Herron of El Paso, Texas. 3. E. W. Berry, an oil man now located Colombia, South America. 4. Orlena Berry, at home with parents.
