Perlina Francis Gentry was my great-grandmother. She married Jessie Franklin "Frank" Gentry in 1883. My grandfather, William Edgar Gentry's birth certificate states he was their 7th child. He was born 11-22-1886. The only other children I have found information on is Ralph who was born and died in1890, an Elijah David born 01-21-1903 and Gerta (Gertrude) who went by Gertie who was born in Oct. 1893...I remember her visiting from Peoria when I was a child...late 1940-early 1950). Apparently Perlina died in Peoria but was brock back to Indiana for burial in Log Creek Cemetery. I have a picture of what I believe is Perlina and several young adults. I recognize my grandfather William Edgar (Ed) because he was very tall and Aunt Gertie. William Edgar married Ila Merlin Norton and they had two sons, Edgar Maurice and my father Leo Ray Gentry.
