Dear Sir, I want some information about claim no. S96462 of Alexander C. Perry of Co. I Second Wisconsin Vols Infantry. He was my lawful brother. His father and mother and mine was the same. I had the care of him for near 7 years. I understand a pension sent to him in 1888 or 9 and was returned to Washington again. He went to Texas and he died there 1885. The parties he went there with never informed me of his death for some months after it occurred. Am I entitled to it or not please inform me. James Peery my P O is Joplin. Jasper county, Missouri
This is an incident of brothers using different spellings, PERRY/PEERY. They were from Clark county, IL to Iowa county, WI and lived in MO and KS. I’m trying to make connection to either James or Alexander.
