I was looking for a copy of the book "Petry, Pettrey, Petrey, Pettry, and Allied Families" by D. L. Petry, 1989, and discovered it is quite expensive, almost $200. I notice there are some individual who have posted to this site who own the book, and hope you might be kind enough to check for my PETERY.
Catherine Anna PETERY, b. Sept. 17, 1828 Little Falls, Herkimer Co., NY; married Solomon T. PIERCE Aug. 9, 1845 in NY. Supposedly they had one son there, James Irwin PIERCE born 1843. By 1848 this family was in Illinois.
For many, many years I have tried to locate information on the parents of Catherine and Solomon - have struck out at every turn. Solomon was born Dec. 23, 1821 somewhere in NY. I can only assume that the county was either Herkimer or in close proximity.
Should anyone have any little bit of possible information, a clue, etc. (I'll take anything), your assistance will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
