Grady Perry (my great-uncle) is no relation to Gov. Rick Perry, although
Rick's wife and my wife have the same first name. The day after the fire at
the Governor's mansion, we got a call at 5 a.m. from a reporter asking about
the fire. Grady Perry and Coke Stevenson did, in fact, marry sisters, Grady
to Dorris Wright and Coke to her sister Fay Wright. By the way, Grady's name
at birth was Grady Fisk Perry, which he later changed to Henry Grady Perry.
Grady's twin uncles, Hill and Hunt Perry, opened Perry's Hardware store on
College Street in Stephenville (the building is now Scott's Flowers), a few
doors down from where the Perry's 5 & 10 was later. I do not know if there
was a connection between the stores or the companies, or if Hill and Hunt
had anything to do with the 5 & 10. Also not at all sure about cutting
railroad ties, but Grady's grandfather was Wilbur Fisk Perry, a Confederate
veteran from Macon Co., Alabama, who moved to Texas in 1876 and to Dublin in
1881. Wilbur had 4 sons, but the male line from him is down to my family. I
have a son who has a son, the last of the Perry boys in our line unless he
has a son some day. Grady's son, Wilbur Wright Perry, never married. My
grandfather was Wilbur Story Perry, Grady's brother, and my father was
Wilbur Grady Perry. Raleigh C. Perry was the father of Grady and Wilbur S.

Grady Perry ran a store in present Three Way School District- across Hwy
67 from pesent school. He and later his son Wilbur Wright Perry had
served as State Reoresentatives. Grady and one Governor had married
sisters from University of Texas. Wasn't their ancestor from Dublin,
Texas the one whose sons helped him cut cross ties for Jake Hammond RR
and others ? Some of this family started Perry's 5 and 10 cent stores in
Stephenville and several other towns. One of these stores was still open
in 1990's in Sweetwater , Texas area in 1990's. ? Some stores in the
chain sold other merchandise.
We lived about 3 miles from the present Three Way ( Johnsville) Store
and shopped there- efore and after Johnsville Post Office and store
had closed. .
