The Opelousas Courier (Opelousas, LA), November 4, 1882:

Abbeville Meridional: Mrs. Daniel O'Bryan, a sister of Hon. Robt. S. Perry, and mother of Robert P. O'Bryan, died at her plantation, opposite Perry's Bridge, on Tuesday morning, October 24th, after a long and painful illness, aged 56 years.

Notes from a letter dated October 18, 1908 from Sister Mary Margaret Augusta Perry (daughter of Robert Perry, Sr., and Ezemily Booth). Sister Margaret Mary Perry was writing from the convent at Grand Coteau to Walter Burke, who had married her niece, Bertha (daughter of Robert S. Perry and Bertha Gary). Apparently she was responding to Walter Burke's inquiry concerning family history:

"Alzenith Perry was born on the 26th of March 1825. She was about 60 years old when she died. I do not remember the date of her death. With her began the conversion of our family to the Catholic Church. She went to the Convent of Grand Coteau with sister Mary Ann, and in a few months became a fervent Catholic and remained so to the last."
