Kemp Perry + Valeria "Leah" Hopkins Perry NC
My name is Leon Perry. I am searching for information on my great grandparents, Valeria "Leah" Hopkins Perry born in 1852 in Wake County, North Carolina, Kemp Perry thought to have been born in Franklin County, NC during the 1840's, and Wesley Perry thought to have been born in Franklin County, NC in 1846. Family history posits that "Leah" was first married to Kemp. After his death, she married his brother Wesley. We have a copy of Momma Leah's death certificate showing that she died in 1929. We also have a copy of the 1900 census showing Wesley and Leah residing in Ferrell's Township, NC with seven children.
