James Perry moved from Vermont to Illinois and then Minnesota. He married Lydia Smith in Rockford IL, where their son Charles J. was born. They then moved to Minnesota, living at various times in Traverse de Sioux, Ottawa, Arlington, Sterling Center and Winnebago.
Of James and Lydia’s children, two (George H. and Alice) moved to Idaho around 1900. Three remained in Minnesota. Charles moved up to St Paul, William lived in various locations and Sarah stayed in Amboy and Sterling Center in Blue Earth County.
George and his wife (name to be placed when I have access to my files) had one son, Elwin, who fought in WWI. He was later found murdered.
