My name is James Carl Peery and I am looking for info
on my great great grandfather, Carl Milton Peery. He
was also known as Milton Peery and C. Milton Peery.

He was allegedly born in 1817 in Tazewell County, Va.

I do not know who his parents were.

He shows up in both the 1840 and 1850 census for
Tazewell County, and is married to a Sarah A.

They had a son named Samuel W., born about 1840.

By 1857 he was in Gentry County, Missouri with his
second wife, Joanna Brace Garrett Peery, who was
raised in Indiana. Joanna was born in either Pennsylvania
or New York, but raised in Indiana and in 1850 was
living with her sisters' family in Decatur County, Indiana.

There was a Peery family in the same county and same
township, Adams Township, in 1850, who may be a connection
to Milton.

I have no info on how Milton died or when or where, but
it appears that he died by 1865 and maybe in Missouri.

In 1850 Milton lived in Burkes Garden, Virginia.

He had three children that I know of in Missouri.

They were Steven Alexander Peery, 1861-1931, my great
grand dad, Ellen Rachel Peery, 1857-1924, and Sarah
E. Peery, Born in 1864, but I can't remember her
date of death. Ellen Rachel and Sarah E are both buried
in cemeteries near Albany, Missouri and Steven is
buried in Nelson, Nebraska.

Milton was crippled, but I don't know in what way, and
was a farmer and a Tailor. His grand son Roy C. Peery
was crippled with a deformed foot and leg, which sounds
like the Brown family disease, so Milton could have
been a Brown descendant, but his son Stevens' wife
was also a Brown descendant, so this could explain
how Roy got the deformities.

Do you have any info on him?

Thanks- Jim Peery
