FAMILY LIFE STORY LINE
after Ethel Amanda
Bell and Ethel Bertie
In the early 1900s, the nine Perrys lived in a house they own on
East Main Street in downtown Canton. They
are within walking distance to virtually everything they need. The
oldest four children are in school and everyone is either literate
or on their way to being literate. Asaph settled in as a barbershop
owner and self employed dealer in retail groceries, getting
occasional help from his brother Louis.
Asaph also maintained a close relationship with another brother,
Charles. In the first two decades of
the 20th Century, the Perrys went about the regular routine of work,
play, church, and visiting the relatives.
