Ottis Kenneth Berry


Ottis Kenneth Berry, hence the OK's. OK was one of three sons of Frank and Adelia (Pearl) Stevens Berry.  OK attended Litchfield Academy and eventually became one of the executives of General Mills, the company that produces several cereals, one of which resembled Cheerios quite a bit and was called OK's.  OK Berry owned the farm on the Plains Road where Richard Beal farms now.  He also owned the beautiful Robinson place on the Upper Pond Road where Helen Holman lives and the brown ranch (newer, retirement home) on the Plains Road beside the paved camp road to Pleasant Pond where his camp was located.
