Berry Bostwick was indeed a son of William Bostwick and Mary Bailey. The given name of Littleberry has been mis-applied to this man, probably because of the several occurrences of Littleberry within the Virginia Bostick lineage. In fact, William Bostwick has no known blood connections to the Virginia Bosticks, his having been born in either Pennsylvania or Delaware, perhaps descended from the Connecticut Bostwicks. The given name of Berry probably originates from the maternal surname ascribed to Mary Bailey's mother, Letitia Berry (Mary's father was James Bailey of Charles County, MD). For anyone interested in this little known Bostwick strand, please feel free to contact me at battebe@yahoo.com, and I will be glad to share whatever I have.

One strand that may be of interest to researchers is the James Bailey Bostwick line. James Bailey Bostwick was a brother of Berry Bostwick and Azariah Bostwick. In his final years James was living with his son-in-law, Louis Evans, in Mill Creek Military District, Whitfield County, GA (see 1880 census). Margaret C. Bostwick was Louis Evans first wife, but had died sometime before 1880. James Bailey Bostwick was named as a legatee in his father's LWT filed in Wilkes County, GA in 1811. I have reason to believe that Richard M. Bostic, who died in Bosque County, TX around 1903 was the 2nd oldest son of James Bostwick and Sarah Jackson.
