Mary Leda Perry was supposedly born in Detroit, Michigan to French Canadian parents. At about the age of eight, her mother died and her father, feeling that he could not take care of her, gave her to the ArchDiocese and asked that a home be found for her. Somehow, she was given to Katherine Hanlon in Ann Arbor, Michigan and was raised by her until her marriage to Albert Keene Galloway in 1914. Because Mary was old enough to know what had happened, she felt abandoned and bitter. She refused to speak of her biological family with anyone. It is believed that she had several brothers much older than her, one of whom came back when she was about 12 to tell her their father had died and the same or another brother who came to Texas in the 30's after tracking her down there. She refused to speak with him and told him to never return. There was no further contact by the family and now, her descendants are desperately looking for anyone who may give us a clue as to where she originally came from.

My mom was also adopted. I know nothing about her birth family. Her biological parents. But this picture of Florence Perry Workman sure looks like my mom.

I appreciate the opportunity to participate in this site. My mother's maiden name was "Perry". I have developed a rather sentimental and nostalgic blog site honoring my grandparents Harriet and Nelson Perry and their four sons and five daughters, complete with photographs ranging from the 1840s to the 1940s. Anyone interested may go to [external link].

Seth C. Perry was born 11 Feb. 1819, in - possibly - Ohio or New York. The problem is I don't have much info on his immediate family. I know he had a sister named Mary, that they were orphaned at a young age, and that they were raised by different families. I do not know who his parents were, if there were any other siblings, or whatever happened to Mary.

I do know that Seth grew up to marry Mary G. Frizzel, of NY, and have sons Henry Asaph, Ira Lovell (who died of croup at age 2), Ira Hartwell (my great-great-grandfather), and one daughter, Clara Jeanette.

Ira Hartwell, married Edith Honora Wiseman, who had Burton Garfield, who had Harold Simmons, who had Geraldine Perry, who is my mother.

I am looking for information regarding my biological birth family. My mother was adopted at only a few months old through the Catholic Charities in Cook County Illinois in 1947. Her birth mothers name was Olga Perry. We've only recently found the adoption papers but have been curious for many years. this is the only information i have to go by. If anyone knows anything, please contact me. Thanks
