David Blacksher Hamilton Perdue was born 16 Oct 1846 in Houston County, Georgia, USA to James A Perdue and Sarah Hall of Georgia, who wed 3 Jul 1838.

30 Mar 1871 David married Sarah 'Sallie' Matilda Barnes 1848 1881. David and Sallie had many children together, but sadly many died very young or at birth. After the birth of their last baby daughter, Sallie died when their baby girl Maude was one week old.

To make matters worse the infant girl Maude died approximately one month later. They are buried in the same cemetery.

Other children were but not limited to...

Blacksher Murry Perdue 1876 1878
Beulah Rebecca Perdue 1878 1959

Also worth noting that Sallie and Maude and many others grave/headstones were damaged by logging in the region.

In Nov 17 1881 David married Easter Dicie Clark in Terrell County Georgia. At this time it looks as though they had 12 children...
