I'll try to be brief but don't think I can. "Loretto" Jarboe married William Perry in 1832. Ref:Marriage Licenses Frederick County, Maryland. A baby was born to them August 27, 1832 in Middletown, Maryland and named William W. Perry. William died Agust 31, 1836 in Middletown, Maryland and he was buried at Mt. Zion Lutheran church there. In his diaries Jacob Englebrecht refers to William as "blind".
In his 1870 application to join the District of Columbia police department, William W. Perry indicated that his father had died 3 years after his birth. He also stated that his father had been born in Virginia and mother in Maryland.
Loretta Perry maerried a Jacob Young November 30 1837 at Christ Reformed Churg in Middletown, Maryland. She had been the former wife of William (the blind) Perry.
On September 22, 1839 Loretta Ann Young was buried at the "old cemetery" in Middletown. Her father, Jacob Young and her mother Ann Loretta Jarboe Perry Young.
Something happened to that marriage and I'm trying to find out what but(1) William W. Perry served with the police force until 1905, the year he retired and a few months later his wife Sara Ann Ellen Riddlemoser died. He then left for Kentucky where he married the wife of J. M. Perry, deceased. He was 68. He died in 1911 and his daughter signed the death certificate indicating that her Grandmother's maiden name was Loretta Atwood.
There's a lot of coincidence here and like any person who can't sleep all, wondering about the next ancestrial question, this is to close. That is the names of Laura Ann and Ann Loretta Atwood.
William W. Perry is hown living with Margerite Marie Shafer Jarboe, wife of the deceased William Jarboe. Census 1850 for Frederick County.
I understand that Eva Simmons left a disposition which was found at the Genealogy Library,Marengo,Iowa. (That information came to me via the Jarboe Family Genealogy Form (Tina Reiser).
The information I got from Ms. Reiser was that a Will Perry was mentioned in the depostion of Eva Simmons.
Sorry for the length of my note. Have a great day. I have written the Marengo Genealogy group and asked them if I could get a copy of the depostion.
