In my search for my family I came across a Lyman Perrigo listed under Livingston County, NY. Livonia Cemetery Records: It says under Lyman Perrigo: Union (center section) Livonia 11791 1854 War of 1812, (Capt. Allen's Co., NY Militia) Legion Post #283. Now, I know the dates don't quite match what you have, but this is what I have found. Plus there is a Lyman Perrigo born 2 Feb., 1882 and died June 1962 last Residence New York and that is also where he was issued a Social Secuity Card which is : 117-16-3865. I don't know if this is of any help. But, it is what I have come across. I haven't connected him with my family yet.

I have a Lyman b ca 1763 in CT that my be the f of my Elias b 1780 CT and rem. to Orange, VT. The Perrigos went to both VT and NY from CT and the Lyman family was tied into the Perrigo family in the 1700's. I think they all came from the New London area.
I also have a Lyman b 1796 in Oxford, Chanango Co., NY. but as a ref only with a source.

Thanks for responding, and I apologize for
taking so long to reply. I think the CT - VT
family connection is a good possibily. It is worthy of some
further research. I am aware of the Oxford Lyman (That is the same
one MaryBeth refers to in her post) and there
doesn't seem to be a "direct" connection.

My Father who is deceased. For some reason distanced himself from his family. I am interested in tracing line back some.
I have little information other than a few names. My fathers name is Nickey Perrigo possibly Nickey Bland Perrigo Even my mother his wife doesnt know for sure. He never used a middle name.
His mother was Midian Gene Perrigo. My father was born in Washington D.C.. I think his father would be Elmer McKinley Perrigo. He had a brother Elmer McKinley Perrigo Jr. and a sister Jeanette --- Perrigo (Anderson).
Any information you could share with me would be greatly appreciated.

I have just started researching the Perrigo/Perrygo name so I just found your message from 3 years ago. i am not familiar with the names of Nickey or Midian Perrigo but my father was Edgar Perrygo and he had a brother, Elmer Mckinley Perrigo, born in Washington, D.C. in 1896. I don't know the names of all of his children but I do know that he had a son, Elmer Jr. and a daughter, Jeannette, both of whom are deceased.
I hope I have been able to help. The spelling of the name was changed somewhere along the line. Some spell it with an "i" and some with a "y". I have some info on other members of the family if you are interested.

My maiden name was Perrigo. My grandmother did a lot of research on the family name. It is french, was spelled Perrigeux, and originally our tribe were the visagoths in northern Greece, our name was Pericort, meaning hard hearted. I have a Ebinizer and many others in your ancestory in my ancestory, and can share my grandmothers work with you. We are a large family, and have an era named after our family, as the first cave drawings ever found were in Perrigeux, France, the town where our family comes from. There is a Perago,Italy, and I think an ancester settled there before coming to the United States. I am a decendant of a David Perrigo, of Vermont, that was a revolutionary war hero. He was a friend of Ethan Allen's, and drummed at the funeral of the general. David had many children, and was buried in a grave marked with just a plain marble slab. I don't have my grandmothers research here in front of me, but I think we are cousins.(Actually, all Perrigos are related, ever some that don't spell it the same.) I think we are close cousins. My father was James Albert, my grandfather was Clare Albert. I will look up the direct links back before I recontact you.Please email me if you recieve this are are interested in more family history.
