Fern Perry (1919-1994) married Byron T. Miller (1913-1999).
My grandmother was Hazel Miller Liberty and Byron was her brother. They are buried in the Rulo Cemetery.

Fern's grandfather is James M Perry, moved from Shellsburg, born in Indiana,, correct? James would be a brother to our great grandfather George Monroe. and Mary Perry Mather Goolsby is a sister to James & George.....

You are correct about Fern's grandfather. I have not followed her tree far enough to know about James's siblings. You are saying he had a brother George Monroe Perry, and a sister Mary Perry Mather Goolsby. Thank you I did not have this.

Hi Ronnie,
I am the great, great granddaughter to Mary Ann Perry Mather Goolsby. She married James Calvin Goolsby and had three more children with him, Martha Elizabeth Goolsby Chaney (Buried at Mt. Hope, Mound City, MO), James Marion Goolsby (Buried at Rulo, NE), and my great grandmother, Ella Mae Goolsby Gordon (Buried at Humboldt, NE). Mary Ann Perry Mather Goolsby is bured at Mt. Auburn Cemetery in St. Joseph next to her grandson Cyril Goolsby Gordon and her son Ed Mather. She was first bured at Forest City Cemetery, but was moved at a later date by her daughter. I do not have much information on Mary Perry. According to family history there is a a family bible, but no one knows who has it. If you ever find out any information on Mary Perry Goolsby, please share it.
Thank you.

No I do not have any photos of Mary Perry. I do have pictures of her daughter, Ella Mae (my great grandmother). There are public pics on my public family tree of Ella. Please feel free to copy them.
