called Perrytown and old Perry town in the Wilkinson co. Cemetery book.
Sec 17, T4N  R1W
I first copied this cemetery in 1986 and returned several times to recheck my
notes and add recent burials.  The last time in the fall of 1997.
This graveyard is surrounded by trees and very pleasant to walk through.  It is
now posted so permission must be obtained before entering.

family members.]

John Perry   b.12 Nov 1802   d. 24 March 1883
[cemetery book says, 1893.  I have re-copied these headstones several time and
have always copied it as 1883.   There was a will for John Perry in Wilkinson
co.dated 1881]

My great aunt, Mary Emma Ashley Perry, told me Willis M. Ashley [her grandfather] was buried in this cemetery, along with 3 Ashley girls.  There are no headstones.  She did not tell me who the girls
were, but I understand that Willis had 3 children that died  very young, of Measles.  I estimated that Willis died in 1895.  He signed a deed, Dec 1894 and his widow remarried Feb 1896.  I was told he died very suddenly.  I only saw Aunt Emma once and really had not done enough research at
that time to know what I needed to ask.  She died before I could return.
