My great great grandfather Alfred Perry is the son of William and Sarah (Grubb) Eaton born at Whitley Co., Kentucky.
Alfred Perry was a trail rider between Lawrence, KS and Texas in the early settlement of Kansas. He carried his only possessions on his pony - a six shooter, a Bowie knife and a tin pan. He spent nights with early settlers and Indians on the prairie. He made friends in Ottawa County, KS where the area reminded him of his home in Kentucky. He married Sidney Elizabeth Snyder ca.1860 in Riley Co., KS . They had 4 children Benjamin, Sarah Jane (Eaton) Cully, Henry Harrison,
and Alfred Perry Jr. After the death of Sidney he moved to Rockford TWP, Sedgwick Co., KS. Where he met and married Margaret Eikleberry in 1869 . Theirs was the first marriage in the newly formed Sedgwick Co., KS. By 1900 he and Margaret were living in Oklahoma Indian Territory with their children David Linzy, Lillie Bell, Walter Jay, James King and Ernest Franklin. Sometime after AP's death Margaret removed to Maricopa Co., AZ.

Some of the information for this bio is from Mrs Garrett Sumner Co.,KS
