Mary Alice (Rice) Perry (1848-1927), only sister of VR, married George William Perry (1846-1928) in 1868. GWP studied theology at St. Lawrence University and served as minister for Universalist congregations all over New England. He also preached at the Universalist Church at Tarpon Springs, Florida, in the winters of 1905-1907 and 1911-1914; MARP accompanied him there.

In 1889 he founded the Rutland (Vermont) English and Classical Institute, teaching there for six years before retiring due to ill health.
