  • Biographical Sketches: William Perryman, Sr. 14 was born and educated in Maryland, and afterward one of the early pioneers of Kentucky, settling in what is now Russell County. He served as a teamster in the Continental Army during the entire struggle, and was once captured and held a prisoner of war for a time. He was also frost bitten during his service, from the effects of which he lost his hearing. He was a pensioner until his death, at the age of one hundred years, being the only centenarian in the county. He was also a life-long and devoted member of the Old School Baptist Church.

    His father, also named William Perryman,(the great grandfather of the subject of the article, Richard Hardin Perryman, M.D.) was a native of England, but in early life came to America with the company brought out with Lord Baltimore. [I question this, a professional genealogist determined that John Perryman was the father of William, Sr.]

  • Research. 17 Interesting to note was the fact that a Richard Perryman married a Mary Fleeming in Caswell County. The possibility existed that Richard and William were brothers or cousins.

    referenced in a Burke County land deed.
