The son of David Frederick Percy and Abigail Woodman. They lived in Watertown, Jefferson Co., New York. He was about 7 or 8 when his parents died. Addison married Harriet E. Bloodough on 24 Nov 1881 in Clinton, Jefferson County, New York. Harriet used her nickname "Hattie" that she preferred at that time when they got married at the home of her father. Their ceremony was officiated by Rev. S. M. Wam. They had six sons named John Ward, Robert Ray, Harold Seymour, Hubert Glenn, Leslie Merton and David Lawrence. Addison was shown as a Sailor in the 1880 US census, and was shown as a House Carpenter on US census records for 1900, 1910 and 1920. Notice there is a discrepancy in birth year: His obituary shows that he was born on 8 Sep 1858 but his headstone shows the birth year of 1857.
