Separating and identifying the numerous Burrell Perrys is most confusing because of the repition of Perry given names. Lois Perry Richardson began this outline in an attempt to put them into order by dates. Others have also contributed. It is easy to see that several Burrell Perrys were living at the same time and even in the same place.
