Perry was born in N.H. At the age of 23 he immigrated to California sailing from New York City via the Isthmus of Panama. After one year in California he returned to New Hampshire and married Mary Anne Scolley. He and his bride, as well as his brother Daniel Cram, then moved to Austin, Texas, engaging in the business of cattle hearding. At the start of the Civil War, being a Northern man, he and his family sold out their Texas cattle operation in 1863 and traveled to California via Mexico. He settled in Sacramento, breeding blood horses and raising cattle, later the family moved to Yreka, Ca. In 1880 he and his family relocated to Wasco Co., Oregon, where he bought the wagon toll road that came down Cow Canyon. The family next moved east of Prineville and settled on Big Summit Prairie. Perry retired to Prineville about 1900. He and Mary had eleven children. Perry is buried next to son James Cram. Perry died of heart failure, falling dead in his front yard. Mary died in 1919 in Hood River, Oregon. Her body was taken to Portland for cremation. Daughter Harriet Cram Vorse was a resident of Portland at that time. I do not know if or where Mary is interred.
