Travel sales, marketing, small business, all quintessential American entrepreneurial activities, were the staples of Asaph Perry's business life. Unlike his father and father's father, Asaph's ties to the land were tenuous. He was, instead, a man on the road, traveling the land for the first part of his adult life, before firmly settling in Canton Georgia as a small business owner and barber.

 

Asaph came of age in the "New South" and in many ways represented the primary economic impulse of that era.
