Perry Family Information at the Website of the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society
Though the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society is now closed for the season, you can still access its website. This link will take to you to a page that lists direct and indirect descendants of the War of 1812 naval hero Oliver Hazard Perry. A slide show is found on the "About Us" page of the website. Next summer if you have a chance, travel to South Bass Island and visit the museum of the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society. Several items honoring Oliver Hazard Perry are found in its collections.
Souvenirs from the Centennial of the Battle of Lake Erie and Perry's Monument are on display at the museum.
All through the museum, you will be taken back in time as you view murals, artifacts, and pictures which show you what Put in Bay was like in days long ago.
The Lake Erie Islands Historical Society Museum is located next to the police station in the village of Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island.
