Perry County lies in the extreme Eastern portion of the state boarding the Mississippi River. It was created from Ste. Genevieve District in 1821. Many of these early settlers came from the East from such states as: Pennsylvania, Kentucky and North Carolina. Since these families and others arrived here before the Louisiana Purchase, they received large influx of settlers heading West. It is surrounded by the counties of: Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Madison, Ste. Genevieve and St. Francois. The deeds within this book start with the creation of the county (1821) but many have earlier dates because they were not officially recorded until after it was carved off of Ste. Genevieve.
