     130.  Alonzo Ragsdale22 Berry (James Warren21, Nancy Mary20 Finley, Howard19, Thomas18, John17, James16, Alexander15, James14, John13, James12, Andrew Fyndlay11, John III Findley10, John Jr.9, John Sr.8, Andrew7, William6, Archibald5, Fearchar MacFinley4, Eugenius McFinley3, Fergus McFinlay2, Ruari1) was born August 23, 1861 in Dade Co., Mo., and died November 25, 1921 in Salt Lake City, Utah.  He married Eliza Jeanette Evans December 22, 1892 in Probably Centerville, Davis Co., Utah, daughter of Jonathan Evans and Josephine Harman.  She was born January 14, 1868 in Centerville, Ut, USA, and died November 30, 1934 in Salt Lake City, Ut. USA.

Notes for Alonzo Ragsdale Berry:
It is still not certain when Alonzo left home.  He was counted in the 1870 Census of Center Twp., Greenfield P.O., Dade County, Mo., but not in the 1860 Census.  The 1870 Census was taken Sept. 15th and 16th.  He is listed as twelve years old.  Alonzo and his entire family were living in the household of his father's uncle, James Finley, suggesting that they had not yet rebuilt a dwelling on their own farm, which was destroyed during the burning of Dadeville, in October, 1863.

 His birthday is listed as August 28th, 1861 on his Certificate of Death.  His father, James Warren Berry, is listed as  born in Ireland, and his mother, Adeline McMillan, as  born in Ireland also.  Alonzo is listed as born in Hopkinsville, Ky.   The Certificate of Death was filed by his brother-in-law, William Evans in  Salt Lake City, Utah on Dec. 3, 1921.  Places of birth for Alonzo's father and mother are proved to be in error by Dade County, Mo. Census records and other subsequent research..  The cause of death was pulmonary tuberculosis.  The L.D.S. files list his date of birth as August 21, 1863.  This was filed by his brother-in-law Frederick Evans.  It is probably in error.

Alonzo's older brother, John, was listed in the 1870 census, Dade County, Mo. as 13 years of age.  He is listed in the 1860 census as 3 years old.  The 1870 Census is probably correct for John, and wrong for Alonzo.  If John left home with money from the sale of some of James Warren Berry's property in Greenville, the date of that transaction (1873) would suggest he was at least 16 when  he left.  Alonzo may have gone with him,  but it is doubtful.

Alonzo appears in the Census taken June 9, 1900, in Enumeration Dist. # 141, Park City, Park Precinct. born Aug. 1860, and 39 years old.  His place of birth was listed as Kentucky, his father as Germany, and his mother as Ireland. It would appear that he chose to keep his origins obfuscated. He was a teamster for the mining company.

Notes for Eliza Jeanette Evans:
Eliza Jeanette (Nettie) appears in June 9th, 1900 Census for Park Precinct, Park City, Dist. #141 with her husband Alonzo and her daughter, Josephine.

Obituary of Eliza Jennette Evans Berry from Daughters f the Utah Pioneers Obituary Scrapbook, December 1, 1934 (Probably taken from Salt Lake Tribune)  "She was born January 14, 1867, at Centerville.  (Florence's note:  Has to be 1868 - see birth dates for siblings Sarah Josephine and Salisbury Monroe Evans), a daughter of Jonathan Benner and Josephine Smith Evans, both early Utah pioneers.  Mrs. Berry had been a member of the Daughters of Utah Pineers and during recent years had devoted much of her time to Red Cross work.  Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. R. I. Ferrell; seven brothers, William B. Evans, Centerville; M.S. Evans, Seattle; J.T., S.B. and F.W. Evans, Salt Lake City; Dr. R.T. Evans, Los Angeles, and George E.
