(MOSES1) was born Abt. 1809 in Liberty Co, Georgia, and died Aft. 1870 in Lowndes or Brooks Co, Georgia. He married NANCY ANN ELIZABETH. She was born Abt. 1814 in Georgia, and died Aft. 1870 in Lowndes Co, Georgia area.
Notes for JAROD WESTBERRY:
Jared Westberry was born abt 1810 in Tatnall County, Georgia. He was the son of Rev. Moses Westberry Sr. According to family members he was a farmer. Jared married Nancy A., b. 1814.
Jared received a warrant for 750 acres of land in Liberty Co., Georgia on Oct. 4, 1836. The land was surveyed on Oct. 19, 1836, and was situated on the bank of Beard’s Creek. He received another grant on Sept. 14, 1839, then moved his family to Lowndes Co., Georgia. They stayed less than a year before moving to Hamilton Co., Florida where they raised their family.
Jared did not marry a Nancy Bennett. The Jared that married Nancy Bennett was a presumed son of Furman Westberry.
Jarod shows in the 1840 census with his brother Moses, Jr. in Lowndes Co, Georgia.
It is highly unlikely that his children were born in South Carolina as some so state. Too, with the grants in Liberty in Oct 1836 and in Sept 1839, it is again unlikely that he was living in South Carolina from 1836-1840.
In 1870, with the border problems between Echols, Lowndes and Hamilton Co, Florida, it would be hard to say which county he was in.
1840 Census shows Jarod with 3 Males, 3 females.

Jared, 61; Nancy, 50; Sevellin, 23; Georgia Ann, 20; Levinia, 18; Elizabeth, 16; Fermon, 2; Janice, 1.
Fermon and Janice are of unknown parentage. It is possible, and practical, that these two children are the children out of wedlock by one of the daughters, Lavinia.
