John Perry b abt 1796 TN

Post by dgirth on Fri Sep 11, 2009 2:53 am

Am trying to learn the names of John Perry who was born about 1796 in TN. He was married twice. By his 1st wife (unknown) it is known from the 1850 Weakley Co TN census that 3 of the kids were William (actually William Cornelius) b Nov 1832 TN, James b abt 1839 TN and Henry b abt 1840 TN. By his 2nd wife Zella Ann Davenport he had 4 kids. From the 1850 census it is known that 3 were Elizabeth b abt 1845 TN, Martha b abt 1846 TN, and Tennessee b abt 1850 TN. A son Thomas was born abt 1855 TN per the 1860 Weakley Co TN. Zella died sometime between Thomas' birth and the 1860 census as John appears to be widowed and has the kids living with him.

Nothing is known about any of the known kids except for William Cornelius Perry who is my husband's gr-gr-grandfather. William married Elizabeth McElyea in 1859 in Weakley Co TN. After having a few of their 12 kids, they moved between 1868 and 1870 to the Campbell area of Dunklin Co MO where Elizabeth's brother George had moved to. Then shortly after the 1880 census all of the family except for daughter Laura and her family, William and Elizabeth moved the family to Wise Co TX. By 1900 William and Elizabeth were divorced. William died in 1928 in OK where he was living with a granddaughter. Elizabeth died in 1910 in Nocono, Montague, TX where she was living with one of their sons and his family. I have most of William and Elizabeth's descendants.

Any info on John and his family, both descendants and ancestors will be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance.
