Alvin P. Perry was born in Lafayette County, Missouri, and reared there to the age of eleven, coming with his parents to Texas in 1853. From that date until 1861 he worked on his father's farm, first in Travis and then in Washington County, and attended the local schools. He was in Baylor University at Independence when the war came on, and quit school to enter the Confederate Army. After the surrender Mr. Perry settled on a farm in Brazos County, then Milam County, where he engaged in farming until 1879, moving thence to the vicinity of Rockdale, and in 1887 into the town, where he now resides. Until the date of the last removal he was engaged actively in farming and later in the dairy business, and still owns his farm of 348 acres near Rockdale. He also owns property in Rockdale and a one-fourth interest in the cotton-yards at this place, where since 1887 he has been the weigher. In politics Mr. Perry affiliates with the Populists, being a zealous supporter of the Alliance and kindred organizations.
