In 1774, two sons of John Perry (c.1690-1760 of
Virginia and North Carolina) left Bertie County, NC and migrated to the Liberty Hill area of Kershaw County and to southwest
Lancaster County. The families represented on these pages are descendents of these brothers, Benjamin and
James. Perrys married into many families still known in the locale: Cunningham,
Brown, Dixon, Matheson, Tillman, Starke, Rochelle, Massey, to name a few. From
these marriages, a large family line developed over the centuries and spread through out SC, Florida and Texas.
