      NAUVOO RECORDS:
      Hancock County Marriage Register, p 45

      Timothy Terry was born in Upper Canada (now Ontario). He was the fourth child born to Parshall Terry II and his second wife, Rhoda Skinner.
      He married Adella May in Canada in 11/1831. Five children were born to this marriage. Timothy's half-brother Parshall Terry III, born 1778, lived at one time in Palmyra, NY.
      In George Walton's Directory of 1837, Terry is on Lot 12, Con 6 of Chingaucousy Township, Peel Township.
      Terry and Elizabeth are listed in the 1850 census of Hancock Co Illinois.
      Timothy's half-brother Parshall Terry III lived, at one time, in Palmyra, NY. He lived near the Joseph Smith Sr. Family. This was about the time that young Joseph Smith had his first vision.
      When the (LDS) Mormons came to Canada, Timothy and many of the Terry family were converted. In 1838, they moved to Missouri and, when driven from there, they went to Nauvoo, IL.
      Timothy Terry did not leave Illinois when the Mormons left after the death of Joseph Smith Jr. He remained in Rock Creek and became a member of the RLDS church.
