His grandfather Thomas Alvah Sperry, Sr and mother Elizabeth Chrisman are buried in Wilson Co., Tenn in the Sperry Cemetery--I do not know where Thomas Alva Sperry, Jr, who was a tailor in White Co., Tenn and his wife Sallie Roberts who outlived her husband are buried. Sallie lived with one of her daughters, Elizabeth Sperry Lowry, in White Co., Tenn --in the 1850 U S Census for White Co, Tenn--Sallie is living with Elizabeth Lowry and her family and she is 77 years old

I am posting the family of Charles R. Sperry and his wife Henrietta Norwood Sperry as my research has it to this point--if any one has corrections or updates I would greatly appreciate it.
