  • ID: I444
  • Name: William PERRY

  • Given Name: William

  • Birth: 15 Nov 1752/1753 in Va

  • _UID: 6B1B00D926E68648A2277636AF42516F5F3E
  • Note:
    Contributors to my research of William Perry's descendants:
    Virginia Mann Harris, Marsha Patterson, Steven Jones, Evangeline Andrews,Dale Reed, Mary Beat rice Jones Hall, Morris Myers,Hayden Fitts (Atty.),Murray Andrew, Lori Andrew, Don R Dodson , Francis Keenan,Sue Ashby, Sue B Perry, Si and Shirley Corn.
    Some give his birthday as 1748.

    I believe these Perrys to be from VA to Granville County, to WarrenCounty, to Chatham/Orang e Counties NC. No Perrys found in Chatham County until 1800 census. Research of Virginia Man n Harris tells that William's family lived in Warren Co NC before settling in Chatham. Howeve r, I do not find a William Perry in Warren Co in 1790 with the right number of children. I do , however, find Perrys in Orange Co NC where I believe this family originally settled. Shirle y Corn agrees that he was born in VA but sends him directly to Warren Co NC and then Chatha m (which was part of Orange until 1789).

    STORIES: Historical Notes Concerning Hickory Mountain United MethodistChurch

    Now we come to one of the famous pioneer preachers of Methodism, ThomasMann. On April 21, 180 5, Thomas Mann was presiding elder of the SalisburyDistrict, when he wrote in his diary: "W e rode to Hickory Mountain. Ipreached from Matthew 10:7, ant there was a move and a shout, an d I exhorted. Brother Robert Wilkerson exhorted and the move died away. We administered the s acrament. My mind and body hurt, though. We had a great shout and joined three black people i n society. We rode to Thomas Reeves,and Brother Wilkerson walked out in the evening and talke d about oldtimes, and all the pains of preaching, the pains of stopping, travelling,etc."
    In 1812 and 1813, Thomas Mann was preacher on the Haw River District,and preached at Hick ory Mountain on several occasions, and visited with William Perry, Gideon Goodwin, and Benjam in Harris. There was a two day meeting in June 1813. Thomas Crutchfield exhorted. The folks m ust have gotten stirred up. He reported: "We had a shout and a dance - it was too wicked fo r me".
    At this time I leave my manuscript and present in evidence two deeds,the first dated July 19 , 1832 and the second, dated July 24, 1856. I will conclude the historical notes at this tim e with a review of these instruments.
    The 1832 deed transferred 4 acres of land to the trustees HickoryMountain Church from Josep h John
    Alston. The price was one dollar; and the deed was attested by Phillip K.Alston, the seller' s (or donor's) half-brother, who built and lived inthe "House on the Horseshoe" now a state m onument. Joseph John
    Alston was known as "Chatham Jack" and was the owner of 40.000 acres of land, practically al l the land between the present Pittsboro and SilerCity. The trustees listed on this deed wer e listed as Edward Perry,Thomas Crutchfield, Lewis Lutterloh, Turpee Perry, Henry Rogers, Wil liamPerry, John Cole and Joseph John Alston. It was stipulated that a houseof worship would b e built on this land, which was at the junction of theCumberland or Fayetteville road and th e Raleigh or Stage Coach Road, fromRaleigh to Salisbury. There is no record that his land rev erted, which it would, if no church building had been constructed.
    Twenty four years later, a second deed transferred 3 acres of land tothe trustees of Hick ory Mountain Church from Robert P. Alston. The testators were Joseph Johnson and John George . The trustees listed in1856 were: Innis A. Alston, Oliver McMath, I.E. Nettles, George Roger s,William Fike, R. N. Green, B.E. Brown, Obadiah Henderson and Samuel B.Perry (this is likel y Samuel Baldwin Perry).
