St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre (1572)

St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre (1572) Not a great day to be a Protestant.

The original Dewberry family in America descends from Peter De Berry (1619-1679, Dad’s 9th great grandfather).  Peter seems to have been a pretty sharp fellow.  To understand why, you must know a bit about French history.  The DeBerry family was in fact a French family who were Protestant in their religion.  Be aware of the fact that in the middle ages and Renaissance, up until about 1800, one’s religious choice wasn’t merely a personal preference, it could be a matter of life and death.
