A usual, I learned some new things about the neighborhood while researching this week.
Berry Street was supposedly named for John Berry McFerrin, who owned property adjacent to the street. However deeds show that the street was already named Berry when he bought the land.
Truetlen was the maiden name of the property developer's wife Cornelia Bryan. John W. Bryan made a deed of gift to his wife and gave her maiden name in the deed.
Grace was named for Grace Scales and had previously been named Kent and Josephine.
