Washington, George Berry
- Michael B. Dougan
Washington, George Berry (25 December 1864–30 August 1928), planter and minister, was born in Arkansas. All that is known of his parents is that his father was born in Kentucky and his mother in South Carolina. It is not known if he was born a slave, and while no photographs of him are known to exist, he reportedly was very light complected. Nothing is known about his education; however, he was literate. In 1883 Washington married Ella Roselle at Marion, Crittenden County, Arkansas; the couple had two children. Apparently, his first wife died, and in 1897 Washington married Lula Wright. No children were born to his second marriage....
