for Capt. David PERRY & his wife Anna BLISS

jumpAPT. DAVID PERRY married Anna BLISS, daughter of John and Rebecca [Whitaker] BLISS of Rehoboth, MA, on 12 January 1764 in Killingly, CT.•   His brother Capt. Sylvanus Perry married his wife's sister Rebecca Bliss also in Killingly, CT, five years later -- both David and Sylvanus having moved to Killingly, David in 1763, Sylvanus about 1765.  (See Killingly, CT, Church records, film #1451024 Item 2; also the Biographical History of Tolland and Windham Counties, CT.).  
Anna BLISS was born 1 Apr 1739 or 1740 in Rehoboth, Bristol, Mass. (a municipal copy of her christening record says 1739, numerous other sources list 1740; this is currently under investigation). 
David and Anna [Bliss] Perry were living with youngest son Nathaniel Green Perry [photo] and his family in Ira, Vermont, when David Perry died.  N.G. Perry's first wife, Roxanna [Hutchinson] Perry, died 2 Jan 1826 and is buried beside her father-in-law Capt. David Perry in the Riverside Cemetery in Ira.  
It is as yet unknown with whom Anna [Bliss] Perry resided after her husband's death in 1826, and sources differ as to her place of burial.  She died on 12 September 1835, reportedly in either Cornish, Sullivan, New Hampshire or across the river in Windsor, Windsor, Vermont.  Death and/or burial place given in sources varies and has not been conclusively documented; her grave has yet to be found, and such a search is difficult as there are many unmarked graves in the region.  Hopefully research will eventually reveal more information.
