Willard Perry disappears from the New York Census after 1840. His widow is there with the William Lynes Family into which a daughter, Emily married. This is not the Willard Perry that went to Salt Lake as he was born when our Willard was getting married. Willard Perry married Comfort Ann Green who was born in Rhode Island on 7 May 1793. When ComfortAnn Green was about two, her family came to New York where she met Willard Perry. Their daughter, Emily was born in Wayne Co., NY on 8 May 1821.
Emily Perry married William Lines/Lynes on 3 Jan 1842. William Lines/Lynes was born 22 Oct. 1818 in Boonville, Oneida Co., NY.
Later they lived in New Albion, Cattaragus Co, NY.
Willard Perry claimed to be a cousin of Oliver Perry, but through which Perry? (as trails lead to Mass.Vermontand Rhode Island.)
His children were: Phoebe, b.11 Nov. 1809 who married Benjamin Paine; Jane Perry, b. 11 Aug 1811 who married George Parks;
