Birth: Apr. 25, 1840
Death: Mar. 3, 1889

"Josiah Chouteau Perryman, a son of Lewis Perryman and Ellen Winslett, his wife, was born at Big Springtown, on April 25, 1840. He entered Tullahassee Mission on March 1, 1850 and after eight years joined his brothers at Choska. He enlisted in the Confederate army in the company with his brother Legus C. Perryman in 1861 and later joined him in the enlistment in the Union army at Burlington, Kansas on December 7, 1862. After the war, he married Martha Maupin, a white lady and lived at Tulsa. He was a member of the Presbyterian church being an elder of that faith in the early days of the Tulsa church. He lived on what is today 41st street in Tulsa where the first post office was established at Tulsa on March 25, 1879 and Josiah C. Perryman was named the first postmaster. The mails were relayed by pony riders from Coffeyville, Kansas. When the Frisco railroad came to Tulsa in 1882, he removed the postoffice down to the settlement near the station, resigned shortly thereafter and J.M. Hall was appointed to succeed him. He engaged in the mercantile business in Tulsa for a time and died on March 3, 1889 and is buried in the old Perryman burying ground at Tulsa. Josiah C. Perryman was one of the most highly respected citizens of the Creek Nation."
