My 3rd great grandfather, Thomas Clayton Perry is listed as a Medical Doctor in McDonough County Illinois from 1860-1880. Any ideas where he may have gone to medical school or where I might be able to find additional information on him? He listed his place of birth as Georgia and his parents both from Alabama. His was is from either Tennessee or the Carolinas. I tried looking in all those places, but all traces of him seem to disappear prior to 1860. I figured his medical training may be recorded somewhere.
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
