Does anyone have information on a certain Washington Perry?

He lived in Owen County Ky and was probably alive in the year 1832. He also was most likely a slave owner, and owned property outside the town currently known as Perry Park. Does any one have any records on him, his wife's name, any children they had and a possible number of slaves they owned. I would also appreciate birth and death dates. Thank you for all your help! (Perry Park is also located very close to the owen-henry county line) Thanks again!

    There is a Benjamin Perry who applied for a Revolutionary pension. He was born in Spotsylvania Co., VA in 1752 and moved to Henry Co., KY where he applied for a pension. You can look at his pension application at Heritage quest by checking at your local library, and probably get more information from his records at the National Archives. The records I found had no information about his family.

    I'm sure you can find much more, there seems to be alot of infomation about the family on the internet.
