Tombstone Tuesday - Mary/Maria S Perry (1899-1990)

Mary S. Perry 1899-1990 
 Mary S. (Pintor) Perry (listed as Maria in the cemetery's records) was the second wife of my great-grandfather William J. Perry. After his first wife, Lena, died in childbirth, she married William and helped him raise his seven children. It is unknown at this time whether they had any more children together, however, based on the information I do have, it is unlikely. She rests next to William in Lompoc Evergreen Cemetery.

  1. The markers with photos make them so much more personal and touching.

  2. Thanks for your comment! I agree that it makes them more personal... also more exciting to find!
