  • Notes 
    • DeKalb County 1860 Census indicates SC as birth-state for PGM...
      Please note that the name, "George", is conspicously absent from Perry Green's line to this day.
      Tombstone inscription reads, "His toils are over, his work is done, and he is fully Blest, He fought the fight to Victory, won and entered into Rest."
