History - Polly Chadwick was born 24 Jun 1789, Tryingham, Birkshire Co., Massachusetts. She was a daughter of Issac Chadwick and Dinah Brewer.

She married Asahel Perry 26 March 1806. She was very faithful to her husband as they moved from Middlebury, New York, to Kirkland Ohio, where they gave their property to the Church.

One report gave her date of baptism as 7 Nov 1832, but the other date given is 4 Aug 1833, the same time that her husband was baptised. It was very trying for her to leave her six children in New York after she and her husband and three of their children joined the church.

She was in the Kirkland Temple in the spring of 1836, when the saints witnessed the many manifestations of the power of God. From Kirkland they went to Missouri, and on to Nauvoo. It was in the Nauvoo Temple where she and her husband received their endowments, 17 December 1845.

In the fall of 1846 they arrived in Mt. Pisgah. From that place they moved to Salt Lake City, and on to Hobble Creek in Springville, Utah.

She was a woman of great faith, courage, and character. Had she not had this faith she could not have left her children in New York and come so far away from them. She never saw any of them again, except Willard who came to Utah on a visit. Maria, her daughter, Philander and Stephen, her two sons who came with them to Utah in Captain Bennetts Company.

She died 30 December 1878 at Springville in the home of her son Stephen Chadwick Perry.
