Proudly Announces the Availability of the
Daysidel Day Bruister Berryhill Collection of Genealogical Materials
Daysidel Day Bruister Berryhill was a genealogist whose intense interest in tracing her family heritage was well known to many. After the death of Mrs. Berryhill, her family donated to NCHGS, on permanent loan, the material that she had collected during a period of sixty plus years. Â Over thirty surnames had been researched along with some allied families. The information on each family generally includes, but is not limited to, miscellaneous notes, notes on the family, documented material, and correspondence with other researchers. The amount of information varies from family to family. The collection is housed in the Newton County Archives and is now available to researchers.
Family names in the collection include the following: Allen, Blitchinden, Bowen, Bright, Bruister/Bruster/Brewster, Cains, Carter, Day, Dunn, Durant, Forgey, Gallaspy, Greer, Hampton, Hickman, Jernigan, Jones, Lee, Little, Long, Massey, Moak, Norcom, Passmore, Patton, Puckett, Reed, Reeves, Tidwell, Tyler, Williams, Womack, Worley, Wroten, & Young.
