“Death of Mr. A. C. PERRY

“Mr. A. C. PERRY died a the home of his mother in Bibb City, Sunday afternoon at four o’clock after an illness of four weeks of typhoid malarial fever. Besides his mother, Mrs. Louisa GRAY, he is survived by one half-sister, Allie Loula GRAY, and one half-brother, Master Wallie GRAY. He was twenty-four years old. The funeral took place from the residence yesterday morning, being conducted by Rev. J. W. HOWARD. The interment was at Clapp’s Factory Burying Ground. The following gentlemen served as pallbearers: Messrs. M. V. CARROLL, J. M. CARROLL, W. L. LAYNE [?], W. H. ELLIS, W. F. RANDALL and W. M. HOFFMAN.”

[Columbus (GA) Daily Enquirer newspaper, Tuesday, 07 JUL 1903]

Seeking information on the background and family connections of A. C. PERRY and his mother Louisa GRAY, as well as the identities of the pallbearers. Note that a PERRY family owned a dairy farm north of Phenix City that was bought by the NEWSOMES (a Clapp’s Factory family) in the 1880s. Albert RANDALL was superintendant of Clapp’s Factory in 1878, 1880, and probably in 1884 – any connection to W. F.?

J. W. HOWARD was a Baptist minister.

Thanks – John in TX
