There was a man named Terrel Rainey perry Jr of Sylvester Ga in Worth County, who was a member of the Georgia legislature from 1935-37, and 1937-39.He filled out a Biographical Questionaire which is in the Georgia State Archives in Atlanta. Rep. Terrel Rainey Perry said he was born Sept 17, 1907 in Sylvester, the son of Terrell Rainey Perry Sr and Amanda Jane Williams of Berren Ga.Rainey Sr was born nov 21, 1860 in Macon County Ga, and married July 10, 1883 in Worth county, Ga. Rep. Raineysaid his father was son of Allen T. perry who was born 1832 in Twiggs County Ga. and who died in Macon County.Allen T Perry had been a first lieutenant in the Civil War and lost a leg in the fighting. Allen T. Perry was married to Nancy Elizabeth Herrington, b in Twiggs, died in Worth County. That's all from Terrel Rainey Perry jr's bio questionaire. Now I think Thornton Perry of Twiggs had a son Allen T Perry, but also a record that Thornton's son was born in 1817, while the Representative says his grandfather was born in 1832. Also, it seems like I saw one record that said Thornton's son was Allen Teral Perry, not Allen Thornton Perry.Thornton was guardian to a boy named Terrel Perry, but i believe it was his nephew, not son. There is much about Allen Thornton Perry's descendants in the History of Macon County Georgia, by Louise Frederick Hays, 1979 p 6ll.This book says Thornton Perry of Twiggs was married to Mary Hightower.Someone on this genforum (Zane Perry?) said Thornton was married to Rebecca Hightower.there was also a Susan Hightower who married thornton's brother John Perry of Laurens county Ga.
