Minert Cemetery Surnames

PERRY



Henry Perry
"Son of S.G. & M. Perry". Rest of marker is broken and missing.

Mattie Perry
"Son of S.G.& M. Perry. Aged 27 years, one month 28 days."
b. 09 Jul 1843
d. 07 Sep 1870

Both Henry and Mattie are sons of Silas Perry and Mary Tryan. The Perry family came from Minnesota to Post Twp. around 1864 and were still living there at the time of the 1885 census.

I believe the stone for Mattie has been misread, because all the other Perry children were born between 1862 and 1885.
