Perry Cemetery is located about seven miles east of Guide Meridian Road and north of East Badger Road (Hwy 546). The cemetery is on private property in the northwest corner of the old Perry farm and is not accessible to the public.
According to Roth's "History of Whatcom County" Vol II, 1926, p140 "William and Elizabeth (Beck) Perry, natives of the south of Scotland, in 1876, came to Washington and located a homestead on Barnes Prairie, three miles north of Everson. "The cemetery began as a Perry family cemetery with the first burial of Mrs. Mary Ellis Perry Duncan, daughter of William and Elizabeth Perry. It was she who chose the site for the cemetery a few months prior to her death.
In the years that followed, other members of the Perry family were buried here and later neighbors availed themselves of this location. The last interment was in 1920 - Charlotte Elizabeth Perry.
In the 1950s Miss Mary Agnes Perry erected a single monument on which was listed as many names (26) of those buried as could be verified. A few of the original tombstones were visible when the first series of cemetery records were completed, but most had deteriorated. A record of names of those buried was obtained from a photograph of the monument, and a newspaper article made available by Mrs. William (Nola) Perry. In addition, some information was obtained from mortuary records, newspapers, death certificates and census records.
This containes all existing and legible stones and markers up to Oct 10, 2008, including the above information.
