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
