Opening   Gramma   Asaph 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.
