Thank you this is helpful. I am sure that I am looking at the correct family now. As I look back several generations, I am wondering if the possible connection is through Amanda Cook, since Francis Perry's mother Lucy (born 1841) was a Cook. I am having difficulty finding her parent information in order to follow this line of inquiry. However, I am trying not to get tunnel vision since I have had the recent experience of discovering that the connecting line of a person that I was researching was an unexpected surname so I am learning to stay open to possibility.
