     Historical note 
 The Perry family, of Campbell and Gallatin Counties in Kentucky, included Fountain Perry, a boat captain and commission merchant who operated flatboats and keelboats down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers from Cincinnati to New Orleans. He traded at various times in tobacco, pork, lard, ploughs, whiskey, apples, horses and slaves, usually operating his businesses from either Campbell County, Kentucky or Natchez, Mississippi. He later moved to Gallatin County, where he served as a commissioner of the common schools and as a justice of the peace. Fountain's son, Roderick Perry, was a miller, a lawyer and a steamboat owner; he served as an officer in the Confederate Army, was president of the Warsaw, Ky. bank, and served as a court clerk. He was also influential in Gallatin County politics, serving on the Gallatin County Bridge Commission. A descendant of the family was William P. Perry, Jr.,a graduate of the Artillery School at Fort Sill, Oklahoma and the University of Virginia who married Anne Taliaferro in June, 1952. Taliaferro was a member of the Phi Mu sorority and attended St. Mary's Junior College. She graduated from the University of Georgia in March, 1952.
