Thanks for the fast responses. I have been researching Ezekiel Perry and his families for a long time and actually had seen all the data given in the refs. and more besides, but do appreciate others' willingness to look and respond as fast as you did. Some of this data incidentally is erroneous. Ezekiel had TWO marriages, (1) to Lucy maiden name unknown to me, abt. 1820, and the other to Olive Briggs abt. 1835. Lucy was b. 18 Dec. 1794 and d. 12 Apr. 1834. (The record I have that gives this data tantalizingly does not mention her maiden name.) Olive was b. 5 Dec. 1808 and d. 5 Mar. 1867 I think (record said 1862 but I think she was still alive in 1864 based on the diary of her stepson Alfred Bennett Perry, my g-grandfather). I am looking for more information esp. about the first wife Lucy, who was my g-g grandmother. And that is why I am trying to find if there could have been a family Bible that would have been handed down through the Parkhurst line somewhere, since Ezekiel Perry was living with his son-in-law and daughter Mr. and Mrs. Parkhurst, in Knox County NE, in his old age. Anyway, best wishes to all.
