1889 :: Death of Miss Emma Perry


Rockdale, Tex., Feb. 15. -- The pure and gentle spirit of Miss Emma Perry, only daughter of A.P. Perry, departed from its earthly abode this afternoon. Deceased was a most beautiful and lovable young girl just budding into womanhood and her death from pneumonia contracted not more than a week ago, has saddened the hearts of her many friends and stricken her doting parents with grief almost beyond human endurance.
