Notes for ROBERT LEE WESTBERRY:
There are too many variations of the birthyear to establish a firm year for Robert. In the 1870 census with Nancy, widow of Noah, Robert is listed as 2 years old. His grave marker says November 19, 1864.

R. L. Westberry - Mr. R. L. Westberry has been doing business in and around Jesup for a period of about fifteen years. Through fair and square dealings with everyone he has won for himself a large and discriminating trade. Mr. Westberry is connected with eighteen different Piano and Organ factories of known reputation. He has sold in the past fifteen years more instruments than any one man in the State of Georgia, and one of his redeeming features is that he always satisfies his customers. That speaks highly of his method of doing business. It has been said that Mr. Westberry can, and will, save anyone at least 25 per cent on any instrument purchased from him. He is a great lover of home and has done a great deal for the development of Jesup.
*The Jesup Sentinel, Thursday, January 6, 1949.
R. L. Westberry Dies At Home. Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon at 3 o’clock for Robert Lee (Bob) Westberry who died Sunday night at his home after an extended illness. Services were held at Red Hill Baptist Church with Rev. John R. Graham officiating. Harrison Funeral Home had charge of the arrangements. Mr. Westberry was the son of the late Sim and Leacy Westberry, both of Jesup and is survived by his wife, Mrs. Katie Westberry; two daughters, Mrs. Lester Teston and Mrs. Ira Edenfield and one son, Luther C. Westberry, all of Jesup. Active pallbearers were Robert Westberry, Robert Poole, Ollen Stewart, Ottis Nunn, Benny Waters and Alfred Strickland.
Notes for IRONA SONORA WESTBERRY:
Her grave marker gives these dates, Jan 27,1876-Jul 17,1967.
From other things I have noticed, I am hesitant to use this birthdate.
I also am inclined to believe that she is the daughter of Miltons first wife and is listed as Frona, age 6, in the 1880 census. She was also called Kate and Ronnie.

She was born July 28, 1886 in Wayne Co, Georgia, and died July 1960 in Lakeland, Florida.
Notes for JOSEPH C. WESTBERRY:
Joseph shows living with his father, Simeon Westberry, in the 1870 census. Therefore, the 1874 birth year would be incorrect.
I doubt that Emma Mosley was the mother, her being so young.
Joseph is living with Joshua Clary, husband of Cassandra Westberry, in 1900.

My grandmother is Thelma Westberry (the daughter of Joseph C. Westberry & Mary Blanton Westberry). Joseph C. Westberry was born April 30, 1874 and died on July 5, 1918. My grandmother was born October 14, 1916 and has no memory of her father. The only information she has been able to share with
me is the story of her father's murder. He was murdered over a dispute with a neighbor about the neighbor's dog trying to bite the older children as they walked back & forth from school. Supposedly, my great-grandfather warned the neighbor that if the dog bit one of his children, then he would kill the dog. Weeks later, the dog "went missing". The neighbor hid in the edge of the woods while my great-grandfather was plowing his field with a mule. As my great-grandfather turned the mule around at the end of a row, the neighbor stepped from the edge of the woods and clubbed my great-grandfather to death with a fence post.
September 30, 2002.
I wanted to let you know that I talked to my grandmother this weekend and gathered a little more information.
She confirmed that her father (Joseph C.) had only one sibling. His name was Robert Lee Westberry. She did not know her grandparents and could not even tell me their names. She did however, tell me the name of Joseph's murderer .... Newton Dukes. Supposedly, after he murdered my great-grandfather, he tried to escape arrest by leaving the county. He was arrested in Odum while trying to board a train. The sheriff at the time was also a Westberry ( I believe she said the sheriff's name was either Maron or Marion Westberry). She told me that Newton Dukes died in prison from the flu. (Phyllis Edenfield Yawn.)
