Edwin PERRY is my Great-Great Grandfather. He was the son of Luke Perry and Irene [Patrick]
Perry who were natives of Vermont and went to Stanstead, Quebec, Canada about 1800 and had
11 children. Luke was born in the late 1700's-died about 1850 in Canada. Irene was born about
1787 and died in Indiana about 1860. Family tradition says she is buried near Headly, White
County, Indiana.
Lydia Emiline [Gates] Perry was born at Nanticoke Springs, Broome County, N.Y. She went to
Indiana and married Edwin Perry on June 21, 1837 at La Grange Co. Indiana. They settled in
Carroll County, Indiana.
