    on a farm 
    • The 1850 census list two daughters: Jane Berry and Hannah Tyree. These two daughters have also been documented in the Annals of Benton county, page 151-152. The Tyree Tree by Watts does not list a Jane but does list an Elizabeth as a daughter of John and Mary. There is a marriage record for an Elizabeth Tyree in the Benton county marriages, but no link to John has been found. The 1840 census only list two daughters for John and Mary. I am not sure where Elizabeth fits into this picture.
