Notes for Joseph Peery (Perry)
On Jun 1, 2007, at 10:34 AM, William Hugh Perry wrote:

“This is interesting. My name is Wiliiam Hugh and I was named for two of my g-grandfather's brothers. My line is: Joseph (1888-1982), Joseph (1850-1915), Joseph (1824-1915), George (1802-1886). William and Hugh were brothers of Joseph (1824 ) and sons of George (1802) who had 7 sons and 1 daughter. George was born in Castleblaney, County Armagh. This place is now in Monaghan so either the county line has been changed or George was born NEAR Castleblaney but on the Armagh side of the county line. Joseph (1824) was married in a Presbyterian Church in Creggan Parish. In this record the name is spelled 'Peery' and we have found it as both 'Perry' and 'Peery' in other Irish records.

When George Perry and his wife Agnes came from Ireland to New York they apparently left their eldest son, Joseph (1824), in Ireland probably with grandparents. He came to New York in the early 1850's after his marriage. Joseph (1850) claimed to have been born in New York but we can find no record and the 1860 census says he was born in Ireland. We believe he was born in Ireland. His older sister was born in Ireland and younger sisters were born in New York. We probably come from the same family of Perrys back in Ireland. Good luck with your research.”

In the 1860 U.S. Federal Census for Cochecton, Sullivan, New York, Joseph Perry was the neighbor of Samuel C. Perry (1832-1911) - son of George Perry (1802-1886).

I have found in my recent research that Joseph Peery’s father was actually William Peery, a farmer from Cloghog, the townland south of Freeduff, and an elder in the Creggan Presbyterian Church in Freeduff. The family tree has been modified to reflect my most recent research conducted at the Public Records Office for Northern Ireland in Belfast in September 2017.

The Civil Marriage Registration dated 18 November 1845 for Joseph Peery indicates that he is a farmer from Cloghog who is of Full Age (21 or over), a Bachelor (previously unmarried) and his father is William Peery, a farmer from Cloghog. The bride was Mary Jane Robinson from Cloghog who is a Minor (less than 21), a Spinster (previously unmarried), and her father was John Robinson, a farmer from Cloghog.

Joseph also appears in the church registry as being ordinated (passing the catechism) on 18 Nov 1837. Mary Jane Robinson was ordinated in the church on 4 Jun 1842. Joseph is also listed as “present” at the wedding of his brother, Robert Peery, on 28 Feb 1844.
