BALTZER "Balthazar" DERRY was born in 1740 in GERM. He died in 1804. Most of
the information that I have comes from about the early Derry's in Fayette Co Pa. comes from Thomas G
Clark thru his mother from his Grandmother Barbra Derry Gates d.1882 the daughter of Bazil
Derry.Barbara was the sister of my ancester Lavina Derry Emme.Mr Clark stated he was told that the
Derry, located around 1810 - 1820 near what is now Phillipi WVA.He found an old deed in Monongalia Co
WVA (VA) Book A pge 203 dated Apr 30 1796 from Wm McCleary and Isabella his wife to Balser Derry of
Loudin Co Va fro 400 Acres in Harrison Co Va on a branch of Simpsons Creek.In Loudin Co Va he found
the following in Deed Book Q page 31 dated Jun 11 1798 a lease agreement between George William
Fairfax by George Nicholas, his attorney in fact and Pauser Derry whereby 120 acres in the parish of
Shelbourn Loudin Co a part of 296 acres called Piedmont.The most valueable copy that he found was
Baltser Derry's will written
Aug 24 1808 and proved Oct 10 1808 and probated Feb 13 1809.He wills Barbra his beloved
wife the home plantation for the remainder of her natural life.Most of the personal property to
Philip and to Adam Murcle,Benjamine Watkins,Jacob Derry,and Philip Derry each 100 acres of the 400
acres in Harrison Co Va (now Barbour County WVA) It is my belief that Adam Murcle and Benjamine
Watkins are sons -in-law of old
Now I have found a
Jacob Derry in the 1786 and 1787 tax records of Fayette Co Pa.
I believe this is the Same Jacob Derry from above and that him being in this area not far
from where the land purchase in 1789 he acted as an agent for his father in the purchase of this
land.The occupation of the Derry's I am told were in Ironworking and it is only logical that after
the death of Balser and the settlement of his will in 1809 that sometime after that they came west to
Harrison Co Va.In the 1810 Va Census Philip and Jacob are still in Loudin Co,but in 1820 census
Loudin Co.Va Philip Derry and Barbra Derry are living in seperate households while Jacob cant be
found.In the 1830 census Fayette Co Pa there is a Basil Derry,Jacob Derry,Mary Derry,Barbra
Derry,Mary Derry,Phebe Derry,and Philip Derry.It is my belief that Jacob Derry is the father of Basil
Derry according to my family oral history and that thru his daughter Lavina Derry Emme this is my
line.More research is needed to make a more positive connection.
information from a descendant of a Peter Derry who was a peer of Baltzer she states that Peter and
Baltzer Derry attended the same church and that both lived in the Frederick Co Md/Loudin Co Va.area
and both had sons named Jacob,and they both died within 5-6 years of each other,that they were
probably brothers and the sons of a Jacob Derry.
Balt's and Barbara's

First Reformed Church of Frederick Co. Md.
