Some of the "Berry" Britts are my ancestors through the Arringtons in
Brookhaven, Miss. No one has ever told me about any native american connection.
Below is a chart of the "Berry" Britts that appear to have originated from Jeptha
Britt and his second wife Malona Smith. Ellsberry Britt and Mary Jackson
are my direct ancestors along with Malona Britt and Abraham Clark Arrington.

I have Berry ancestors in another part of my family so I see nothing wrong if
there are some Berry ancestors hidden away somehow in the Britt side of my
family.
