               "Aspen Level" still stands in Nuckols, Buckingham County,
               Virginia. It was first owned by William I. Berryman, ca. 1740.
               Reuben and Sallie owned the property in 1858. There is an old
               Cemetery thought to be over 150 years old on the property but
               there are no markers. Holloway Hudgens married a Nancy 
               Berryman in 1787 in Buckingham County, Virginia. Nancy 
               Berryman may have been a descendant of William I. Berryman.
