The Richard Perry connection comes from a book in the Georgia Archives in Atlanta.The book is called The Crenshaws and the Perrys and is by Beatrice Mackey Doughtie.It has been some time since I (Pat Colbert) looked at the book, but Mrs. Doughtie was a DAR member, a Pilgrim decendent, a Magna Charta decendent and supposed to be of Royal descent as well.
There was a Richard Perry in the Lancaster District.Whether this Richard was a definite relation is in some question.Some of my notes given to me by a Pennington believe that he married a girl with the last name of Stevens and that he lived in the SW area of Lancaster County between Cedar and Rockey Creeks.
