Notes: William is using his middle name of Perry, which he often did. It surprised me to find the family in Washington at this time, since I had not realized they moved here for two years between Chicago and New York. After 16 years in Irvington, the family moved to Chicago in 1895, and then DC in 1898/1899; Oliver Perry was listed in both the 1899 and 1900 DC directories. Apparently, he has just recently moved to New York (Mamie gets married in just 13 days1), and Robert will attend business school there. Perry and Fanny stay in the DC area, but move to a different residence, due to their jobs. Oliver Perry, Mary Emily and Robert move back from New York to DC in 1904. (There is no 1890 census)
