  • ID: I024
  • Name: Mary E. Perry
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: 25 DEC 1849
  • Death: 13 NOV 1908 in Grand Rapids, Kent County, MI
  • Note:
    I do not think this marriage produced any children.

    Birth is calculated from death record in Kent County. The 1850 census states she was '3' so I am not quite sure which is accurate. The 1900 census states her month of birth as December.
