      !Records-Marianne died as a young women after several years of Hopeless invalism.  Samuel Greely Perry, became a minister.  He went west and nothing else was heard of him.  Ebenezer lived and died in Essex, New York.  He married and died there.  He had three sons all of whom died in the Civil War. Gustavus left home at age 10.  Caroline went to live with an uncle and Phebe was adopted by a Deacon Farnsworth, etc., which is the reason facts about his brothers and their decendants are so little known to decendants of Gustavus (and to the writer.)  Elizabeth and Jeremiah Emery had a daughter Betsy who died young and a son Jeremiah Jr who married and lived in Michigan.
