I am having extreme difficulty finding any information on a William Thomas Perry (aka: W T Perry) who lived in Woodville (Haywood County/LAU), Tennessee around 1865 to1905. I believe he was a prominent businessman, owned the "WT Perry Dry Goods Store" in Woodville. He married Alice Jane McAlpin (also spelled McColpin) on 12/27/1879, in Haywood Co., Tennessee. They had five children: Edward Gordon Perry (m. Melvina Vandelia Kirkpatrick on 12/28/1910, I believe they were married at "Scotlawn" {Revo Plantation} in Ripley, Lauderdale County, TN.,she was the daughter of John William Kirkpatrick and Virginia Howell Scott{daughter of Thomas Miller Scott Sr. of "Scotlawn"})., William McAlpin Perry, Hattie Perry, Lee Perry & Amy Perry. The family moved to El Paso, Texas around 1905. He died in El Paso on August 24, 1910. I have exhausted all possible avenues in an effort to find the names of his parents. William Thomas Perry's mother's maiden name might be Winfield and they may have come to Tennessee from around Ashville, North Carolina. I also believe he had seven sisters and no brothers. Any information which you might have or any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank You for your help. Gordon Perry gp3@aol.com
