In Reply to: Solomon Ruffin Perry/N.C.? by Mary Kennedy of 12878

hi Mary,
I just might have some useful information regarding my ancestor Solomon Ruffin Perry..His father was John Perry and was probably born in Va. and died in Louisburg, Franklin Co., NC in 1796. Tradition tells there were 7 Perry brothers who came from Va. to NC some time b4 the Revolution..Tradition apparently is verified by the names of the 1st six of these brothers being found on the muster roll of Capt. Osborne Jeffries' Co. in 1754(N.C. Colonial Records, Vol. 22)
The children of Solomon Ruffin Perry b.b4 1765 and d.1818 and his wife Mary Louisa Crudup b. ca. 1768 Wake Co., NC d. Franklin Co. N.C. after 1799 are as follows:
(1)John Crudup Perry b. Franklin Co., NC ? killed in duel Ala. 1842a
(2)Elizabeth Battle Perry(my great great great grandmother) b.NC 1795, d.1870 married Williamson Harris b.1782, d. 1840 in TN.
(3)Josiah Dickson Perry m. Rebecca Hare b. 1797 d. Jonesville, Tx 1878
(4)Larkin S. Perry
(5)Dr.Harwood Pope Perry b 1805 NC d. Jonesville, Tx 1876 m.Mary Ann Earl b. 1810 NY. d. Jonesville, Tx 1890.
(6)Mary Crudup Perry m. NC 1820 Reddick Hillsman lived Carroll Co., TN
I think there are more Perry children but I don't have the info with me at this time.
I hope this will help you to know Solomon's father was John...I am looking into this also, so lets keep in touch and share what info we might find..
Sincerely, Patrick S. McKinney
