William Perry, b. ca 1780 probably in SC, died 14 December 1837 in Meriwether Co. GA. I believe he lived near White Sulpher Springs when he died. Earlier he and his family had lived in Crawford and Jones Counties in GA. May have lived in Stewart County, GA.

His first wife was named Sarah, am trying to find her maiden name and her kin.

Last known reference to Sarah was in Jones County, GA land records dated 02 February 1815. Sarah & William were selling 90 acres of Lot # 121 10th District on Cedar Creek to John Tripp. Witnesses are James Griggs and Robt. Cunningham, J.I.C. Listed on Deed for land sale, Book G page 22-23 Jones Co. GA

Does anyone know any more about this family? Who in Jones County was kin to Sarah or to William Perry?

I suspect that Sarah was selling land that she inherited. Does anyone know anything more about this - I am too far away to do onsite research. But I am hoping that someone reading this knows more about it than I do.
