Query from PE3.05

Post by PerryResearch on Tue May 05, 2009 10:34 pm

This month we have a query from me, the Editor.

I’m looking for a male Perry descendant of Daniel and Eleanor Perry of MD, Greenbrier Co., VA, and KY (who may be related to me) to volunteer for the Perry DNA Project. I am willing to pay for a 12 marker test for this volunteer. If they wish to test more markers, they will have to come up with the additional funds. They MUST provide me with their known Perry ancestral line (no living persons) to prove the connection to Daniel and Eleanor and tell me the DNA test results (marker numbers) to see if a match is made. If for some reason, it doesn’t match, it’s okay, no refund is needed.

Post responses or questions here, message me in the forums, or email me directly. It's believed that Daniel Perry was the son of Rev John Perry s/o James of Perrymount. I descend from James' son Swift and my uncle has took the DNA test.

Re: John Perry Sr & Jr

Post by wlperry on Mon Feb 28, 2011 11:56 am

I am looking for information on John Perry, wife Elizabeth McClung, and other wife Jane Nelson. Ultimately, I would like records to confirm his particpation in the Rev War. I found a reference to Military Records: private in a Virginia unit, married to Elizabeth McClung, but no citation or record source. I descend from one of his sons, Henry Perry B: 1786, in Greenbrier (Monroe) County, Virginia Death: 13 MAR 1855 in Marim, Linn County, Iowa. My family history written by John's g-granddaughter indicates John was born in Ireland, came to America and fought in the Rev. War. I'm fairly certain his marriage with Elizabeth McClung is the correct John in my lineage. There are citations that put John's birth in 1750/54, others 1758/60 in Ireland. His father was also, John. The John Sr. born about 1722 was reported to be the third son of Swift Perry II. Published reference to Henry’s father being the John Perry that came from Ireland is found from excerpts from, History of Logan County, W.Va. by Henry Clay Ragland Chapters 13-22 - The Genealogical Section). This reference indicates four Perry brothers ( Jack probably John "Jack", Joe(Joseph), Henry, and James ) were sons of John, a native of the north of Ireland. These sons agree with those of John and Elizabeth McClung. I know that his son Henry left Cabell/Logan Virginia in 1826 to Madison Indiana. Several records indicate a John Perry Immigrated to America Year: 1774 Age: 16 Place: Maryland. Estimated birth year: B: abt 1758 in Ireland.
There is another John Perry that is found as born in Augusta, Virginia in 1758, and served in the Rev. War. I do not believe this is the same John Perry in my direct lineage. He may be a cousin of my John Perry born to his Uncle Joseph who reportedly was in America by 1730s.

Re: John Perry Sr & Jr

Post by PerryResearch on Thu Mar 03, 2011 4:35 am

I've thought for a couple days what to post as a response. In our family, researching John Sr and Jr has been extremely rough. So many things are confused and incorrect info online has made it worse. When I started seriously researching this family in 2004, I quickly realized that the internet was full of incorrect and/or pieced together information that kept getting repeated over and over usually with no sources. This website exists in part to help get rid of the confusion with our Perry family.

Henry was a son of John Perry Jr, son of John Sr who in turn was a son of Swift, son of James of Perrymount.

John Jr was born abt 1758 probably in Dromore, County Down, Ireland (Northern Ireland) and came to America in 1774. He lived near his granduncle Joseph in Maryland until about 1777 when him & John Sr along with his uncle Swift II, & cousin Daniel Perry moved into Montgomery County, VA (in present day Monroe County, WV). John Jr probably married an Elizabeth McClung abt 1774/5. They had Mary, John III, Joseph (my line), Henry, Sarah, Florence, and James. Elizabeth apparently died and John remarried in 1798 to Jane Nelson, no issue. I've seen info that John Jr fought in the Rev War and/or the War of 1812. Interestingly, two brothers named John and Thomas Perry (maybe two sets of them) fought in each of those two wars and their records get mixed up a lot. John Jr died bef 1820 since Jane is listed alone; possibly in 1813.

John Sr, I have less info on. He was born abt 1734 + or - 3 years probably in Moira or Dromore, County Down, Ireland. His wife is unknown though some unverified online databases list her as Elizabeth. He is confused with at least four other John's online! This is the hardest family member for me to sort out in researching so far. He came to America, probably in 1774 with his son and is mentioned in his uncle Joseph's will. He last appears on the 1810 census in Monroe County, VA (WV).

Swift Perry was born abt 1697 in Lisburn, County Antrim, Ireland (Northern Ireland). He seems to have married an Elizabeth, though many online listings have an Isabel as his wife. They had James, Adam, Martha, John Sr, & Swift II (maybe others). The later two came to America. He died in 1783 Dromore and Elizabeth ten years later.

I'll post additional info on these guys and include source materials as soon as I get the time. Hopefully, this weekend.
