According to my information, your Perry Fruit was a s/o Edmund and Mary [Gray] Fruit. Edmund was b 1 Nov 1786 Randolph Co., NC, d 10 Mar 1861 MAdison Co., IL. He was s/o James Samuel Fruit and his wife, M. [Margaret?] Clark.

Mary [Gray] Fruit was born ca 1788, d before ca 1835, for about that time Edmund married his second wife, Jane Robinson. They had four children:
14] Alexander 15] Martha 16] Margaret 17] Henry Clay
Jane [Robinson] Fruit died between ca 1843 and April 1851 when Edmund took a third spouse, Ann Prior, b ca 1830 IL. No known issue.
I just saw your post on Enoch Fruit, and yes, Edmund did have a brother by that name. I will see what I have on him and get back to you.
