Perry families in Jones Co. GA in the early 1800s

In 1825, an Edward and a Nathaniel Perry are shown as Tax Defaulters of 1 poll each in Capt. Blount's Dist. in Jones County. At the same time in the 1825 poll records, there was a William Perry (also 1 poll) who also lived in Capt. Blount's Dist. - shown at the time as holding 727 1/2 acres in Jones, 202 1/2 acres in Crawford, 101 1/2 acres in Monroe Co, and 500 acres in Early Co. GA.

In March 1826, the estate of a William Perry (there were more than one in the early 1800s records) was inventoried, appraised, and probated in the adjacent Jasper Co. GA, with Edward and Nathaniel Perry named as the administrators. Among the list of buyers were Edward Perry, William Perry, Nathaniel Perry, A. Perry, Archibald Perry, and John Perry. And I need to learn how to step back from this older William Perry who died in Jasper Co. GA and/or learn how these families inter-relate.

The William Perry living in Jones Co. GA in 1825 may be the same William Perry who bought items at the March 1826 Jasper Co. estate sale of the older Wm Perry, deceased. I would like to find proof that confirms or disproves these to be the same man, or identifies any relationship.

The William Perry of Jones Co. first bought land in Jones in 1807, with later holdings in the other counties (listed above)- he also had sons named Archibald Perry, and John Perry, as well as several others. I believe the two William Perrys link together. I don't know if this was the Jones Co. William and sons were buying at the older William Perry person's Jasper Co. estate sale or if those were the people he named his sons after.

I would like to find proof or leads to define how all these Perry men are/may be related, particularly to others not listed here who also lived in Jones Co. and to descendants who later moved to other central and western GA counties on the way to AL and other states to the West.

I have information on this Jones Co. William Perry and many of his family members and some descendants. He is my ancestor.

Does anyone know more about any or all of these Perry families? - I hope someone can help me untangle them and their relationship to each other. The Jones Co. William Perry's descendants moved on to farm land in the other GA counties where their father held land, intermarried with the Green or Greene, Holliman (also spelled Holloman Holleman Hollomon, Hollimon, etc.) and Copeland (Copland Coplan), and related families. Then descendants moved on to AL and other westward States.
