Birth: Dec. 1, 1848
Stewart County
Georgia, USA
Death: Oct. 27, 1910
Leesville
Gonzales County
Texas, USA

Daughter of John G. Perry and wife Cassandra (Holloman) Perry.

A Texas descendant gave her birth date as 01 Dec 1848, which matches the birth date published in "The History of Stewart County, GA...;" however, below is the Perry family on the 1850 census for Stewart County, GA.

1850 Census - Stewart Co. - 19th District - Georgia - pg. 105

John.........................11...M.......GA
Amelia........................4...F........GA
A.N...??...................3/12..M..?....GA {possible census error, this is roughly the right age to be daughter Amanda Ellen Jackie Ann Perry. She was given the names 'Amanda Ellen' in memory of her sister who died shortly before her birth and two given names of her own.

Amelia first married James William Snelling(s). They had five known children. James died 6 Dec 1879, in Stewart or Webster County, GA. Burial place unknown. If anyone has additional information, please let me know.

Amelia and their children are on the 1880 Webster County GA Census:

Amelia is next found on the 1900 Census in Gonzales County, TX - married to Mack Vontree.

Their marriage is recorded in the Gonzales County, TX Marriage Records as October 30, 1884. However, the record unfortunately contains some creative spelling: Marriage of "Mrs. Amelia Snelling and McVontree," #255, dated October 30, 1884, by S. W. Smith, Pastor. [provided by Norma Johnston]

Amelia died 27 Oct 1910 and her death is recorded in the Gonzales County, TX Death Book 3A...Registered #65...Dr. HH Beasly. Died of TB. [provided by Norma Johnston]

She is buried in an unmarked grave at the Old Smiley Cemetery, now called Smiley Baptist Cemetery, Smiley, Gonzales County, TX. If anyone has documentation for her birth date and her Snelling marriage date, please let me know what is accurate.
