bullet  General Notes:

This must be the branch of the family that I remember having been talked about when I was young. I seem to remember that one branch of the family struck out west to find their fortunes (gold rush) but were never heard from again. My grandma Alice and grandpa Perry were the ones that were telling this story and we were in their house in Chicago probably in the mid 1960s.
