Notes for #13 Burrell Perry: The court records of Coffee County TN law suit in 1877 list the following children: Calvin, Benjamin, Isham, Amanda, Jane and John. However 1850 and 1860 census records show the following additional names: Bunwell, Mary, Clementine, Ardenia as well as excluding the name of JANE. It is possible that Jane was a nickname for one of the daughters.

Posted by Cathy Casper on September 26, 1998 at 09:16:59: (http://genforum.familytreemaker.com/privett/messages/166.html) I have seen several posts for Willis Privett. There are several Willises, of course but found this yesterday at Archives in Raleigh and thought I would post:Tennessee Divorces: 1797-1858 "Privett, Willis" 5 November 1827 Smith County Willis Privett was married in December 1824 in Wake County, North Carolina to Delila Perry. They lived together happily for two years. At the end of two years and some before, she began asking him to move to the Western country, suggesting that her mother had moved to Virginia, that her brother had moved to Tennessee and that since they were poor, by moving they might better themselves. Last February (1827) they arrived in Smith County in the same neighborhood as her brother, Burrell Perry, and his family. They lived with Burrell but Willis soon found his brother- in-law to be devoted to an idle man named John Boze. Delila ran off with boze and lives with him. Petition includes signatures of 5 neighbors who say they have known Willis Privett 9 or 10 months."
