Searching for Ransom Perry, born 6 Feb. 1784, Wake Co., NC, and alleged to have died in Jasper Co. in 1857.
Excerpted from The Biographical Record of Livingston County, Illinois, (p. 450):
"From Indiana he [Ransom Perry] later moved to Missouri, locating near Carthage, Jasper county, where he died about 1857."
Is there anything in Jasper Co. records that can confirm this statement? Marked grave? Obit? Estate record? Ransom and his (4th) wife, Drusilla were in Carrol Co., AR, in 1850, and he purchased land there as late as 1854.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
