Ransom and Drucilla Perry

Classification: Query
Seeking death date and burial place for Ransom Perry, born North Carolina, 1784; living Carroll Co., AR, at least as late as Nov. 15, 1854, when he bought land (SW/SE 2-18-23). He was listed on 1850 census with his (4th) wife, Drucilla--they were enumerated as BERRY, an error in this case. He had been quite prominent in Bartholomew Co., IN, with many children, most of whom stayed in Indiana. The descendants went so far as to erect a substantial monument in the City Cemetery, for Ransom Perry and other family members; but it is very unlikely he was actually buried there. Interested to know what resources are available in Carroll Co., such as probate indexes, countywide cemetery indexes, newspaper obits, etc. Ransom Perry is one of our persistent mysteries, but bounty land data from Natl Archives (and glorecords) is the best lead we've had in ages!
