for the BARNUM/BARNHAM Surname
Notes for Lydia Bourne PERRY
After the death of her husband, Mrs. Lydia Bourne (Perry) Pickett spent most of her life in the home of her sister, Mrs. Fisk, at Hyde Park, Suffolk, Mass., while she found employment in Boston, Suffolk, Mass. A few years before her death she went to live at Augusta, Kennebec, Me., on a small farm owned by her niece, Mina Perry. This farm was rented and she boarded with the tenants. She was then invited to the hospitable home of Mr. William Fuller Dyer of St. Joseph, Missouri, where her life was a very happy one until the end of her life came quietly. She was aunt Lydia to all who knew her. Her hair was very curly, and she always wore it short. She was rather short in frame, but round and plump, her face free from wrinkles, her complexion like that of a girl, and, with her large black eyes and her animated manner, she was the handsomest woman of her age that I ever knew. She had no children. [Sinnett, C. N. (n.d.). Ancestor Benjamin Dyer ancestry and descendants: With index to the names

Note: She gathered much data for the Dyer History.
