The obituary below appeared in the 23 Jul 1898 issue of the Los Angeles Times.

A PIONEER'S FUNERAL
Interment of S. M. Perry, Prominent as Supervisor and Citizen
The funeral of S. M. Perry, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of Los Angeles county from 1888 to 1892, occurred yesterday, with services at his late home, No. 1952 Lovelace avenue, East Los Angeles, and interment at Evergreen cemetery.

Mr. Perry was a California pioneer, and had lived an interesting and varied life in the west. He was born in Venango county, Pennsylvania, May 12, 1836, and educated at Piqua, Ohio. He was a hardware merchant in Marysville from 1860 to 1862, and then, at the outbreak of the John Day River excitement, went to the gold fields. On December 25, 1868, he was married to Hattie Sergent, in Coles county, Illinois. He lost most of his property when the boom came to an end, and turned everything over to his creditors. For the past four years he has been in poor health. He leaves a widow and three daughters.
