HISTORY OF PERRY CEMETERY

This cemetery is well named "Perry" as their was found 64 Perry stones and numerous others related to them. 
The cemetery was still being kept in excellent condition in June 1998 when Charlotte & Linda visited it.

The land on which this cemetery is located was taken from the government by Edmund Perry on August 1, 1836, 
but it is not known exactly when the first burial occurred.

In 1830, there were seven families of the Nathan and Rebecca Yarbrey/Yarbrough Perry families who came to 
Illinois from South Carolina by way of Kentucky --- five sons and two sons-in-laws.  Their children were 
Edmund, Melvina, William, Edward, Sarah, Irwin, Benjamin and John. All became residents of Illinois.

This 1830 migration seems to have centered about the eldest son, Edmund, who with two brothers and a brother-
in-law had spied out the land in 1829.  He was here at the time of the deep snow and returned in June 1830 to 
bring his parents and the family back with him. The trip from Kentucky is said to have taken one month.

Edmund had married Rachel Bridges of North Carolina. The had eleven children:
Martha, Phoebe, Rebecca, Icabod, James, Nathan, Sarah, Melvina, Louisa, Francis, and Luke.

Nathan, aged 82, and Rebecca and Edmund, aged 82, and Rachel, aged 76, are said to have been buried near the 
center of the cemetery around which was a wooden fence.
