The subject of this sketch was born March 14, 1866, in Washington County, Indiana, the oldest son of Rev. Joseph M. Berry, of North Carolina, and Miss J. Lockenborn, of German descent. Virgil attended the Peabody School, Arkansas, until nineteen years of age, when he went to Springfield, Mo., and there studied medicine for four years under Dr. L. Coon, of that place. Afterward he spent two years at the Medical Institute, Chicago (Cook County Hospital), where he graduated in the spring of 1891, going to Wagoner, I.T., where he is now practicing his profession. October 22, 1891, he married Miss Emma K. James, daughter of Wm. James, a well known citizen of Cornersville, Tenn. Dr. Berry is a gentleman of good appearance and address, is highly educated and stands high in his profession, both medical and surgical. He owns a nice house and lot in town and an office on the main street.
