I am searching for Adelia Perry, who married Henry Fitch Hubbard in Charlestown, New Hampshire, in 1847.

There was definitely a Perry family in Charlestown during the 18th and 19th centuries, as recorded by The Rev. Henry Saunderson in his book "History of Charlestown, New Hampshire" and published in 1879. Some of the data in his book relevant to the Perry family is given below. The rest of what is available can be found at

Unfortunately, Adelia Perry is not among these names, but she is identified in the Hubbard family section as having married Mr. Hubbard, and that marriage has been verified by another source.

I am hoping that somebody has researched the Perry family of Charlestown and has located Adelia Perry, and, if so, will post a reply.
