Birth: Jul. 23, 1918
Death: Mar. 19, 1929

Rockdale, March 20. -- Preston Perry, only child of Ed Perry of the Salty community, was accidentally killed last Tuesday by the discharge of a .22 caliber rifle in the hands of his playmate, Alvin Duett, aged 10 years. Duett had gone to the Perry home to spend the night. In the afternoon, the Perry boy handed Duett the rifle, telling him to shoot the rabbit in the thicket nearby, he having gone ahead to direct the way, when the gun was discharged, taking off the back of Perry's head. He was rushed to Taylor sanitarium but died before an operation could be performed. (Waco News-Tribune, March 21, 1929.)
