RE: Perry family in Windfall
Found this info for you from an 1880 biography. E. Perry, railroad agent and operator, is a native of Owen County, Ky., and was born March 27, 1852; he is the oldest of four children (three now living) born to Lewis and Orpha E. (Said) Perry, natives of Kentucky, and of Irish and English descent. Lewis Perry came to Tipton County, Indiana, as early as 1852, locating near Windfall, and made a good home of 100 acres. In 1864, he enlisted in Company G, One Hundred and Fortieth Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and participated in Sherman's march to the sea; near Wilmington, he was taken sick and died His wife died in January, 1875. In October, 1870, E. Perry began his study of telegraphy, and January 1, 1871, was given a position as night operator, which he held for ten months; he was afterward stationed at different railroad points, but returned home in the spring of 1875, upon the death of his mother; in 1876, he engaged as railroad agent, clerk and operator at Highland, Ill., but in 1878, he returned to the farm. In December, 1881, he secured the position of agent and operator at Windfall, which he still holds; he is one of the most accommodating agents on the line; he is identified with the republican party, and is a member of the I.O.O.F. He was married, March 21, 1877, to Miss Ida Steele, of Windfall. She was born March 30, 1862, and is the daughter of J.H.N. Steele. They have had three children, two of whom are living - Ora Dessie and Bertie. Mr. Perry is owner of a farm of 110 acres with fair improvements, besides as good village property as Windfall contains.
