GENERATION No. 5

24. ROBERT BIGGEN PERKINS (RICHARD, RICHARD, RICHARD, ROBERT) was born March 16, 1735/36 in St. George Parish, Baltimore, Maryland, and died April 06, 1832 in Lincoln Co., North Carolina, USA. He married ELIZABETH LOLLAR 1750 in Lincoln County, North Carolina, daughter of ISAAC LOLLAR and ELIZABETH ?. She was born Abt. 1740 in Orange County, Virginia, and died Aft. 1823 in Lincoln County, North Carolina, USA.

Notes for ROBERT BIGGEN PERKINS:
Robert Biggen Perkins was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. His great-great-grandson Brigham Young Perkins claims, "My second great grandfather, Robert Biggin Perkins, was born in Old Virginia about the year 1735. He was the son of Richard and wife. He married Betta Lollar. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. At one time, just as he was bringing his gun down on a Tory to fire, a musket ball came and shot the lock off his gun, leaving him otherwise unhurt."

On 27 August 1762, he bought 436 acres on the west side of the Catawba adjoining Thomas Anderson. (Is this a real Anderson? His cousin Ute used the alias John Anderson and James Anderson.)

On 11 January 1765, Justices Alexander Osborn, Jno. Oliphant, and Andrew Allison reported: "Information being made in open Court upon the Oath of John Oliphant Esq. that he has just cause to suspect that John Bridges Jr., Richard Perkins Jr. & Robert Biggam Perkins have feloniously taken & kead away two Stone Horses & one Gelding of the price of L5 each of the property of Persons unknown supposed to belong to some of our Indian Allies the Cherokees it is therefore ordered on motion of Emd. Fanning Esq. Attorney for the King, that a Warrant be issued out signed by Colo. Alexr Osborn Charman of the Court for the apprehending of the afd John Bridges, Richard Perkins & Robt. Biggam Perkins that they may be brought before him or some other of his Majestys Justices of the Peace for sd County & be dealt with." And then: "George the Third, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, etc. To the Sheriff of the County of Rowan Greeting. We command you to summon a John Lowrance, Isaac Lolar, Robert Bigham Perkins, Richard Perkins, Thomas Bridges, John Bridges Senr., David Bridges, Rubin Simson, Peter Lowrance, Margaret Bridges, Matthew Bridges, Eliz. Lorance personally to be and appear before our Chief Justice and his associate Justice of our Superior Court of Justice to be held for the District of Salisbury at the Court House in Salisbury on the 22nd day of Septr. next; then and there to testify, and thet ruth to say, on Behalf of Williamson & John Bridges in a certain matter of controversary in our said Court depending, and then and there to be tried, between us--plantiff--and Willm Simpson and John Bridges Defendant; and this they shall in no wise omit, under the penalty of Twenty Pounds Proclamation Money, Witness James Hasell, Esqr; Chief Justice of our said Province, the 22nd Day of Mar in the VIth year of our Reign, Anno Dom. 1766."

Apparently John Bridges didn't learn a lesson, for in Salisbury District NC: "At a Superior Court held for the District of Salisbury at the Town of Salisbury on twenty second day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and sixty six before the honorable the Justices of the said Court. The jurors for our Soverign Lord the King upon their oath present that John Bridges late of the County of Rowan labourer being a man of evil name and dishonest conversation on the first Day of August in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and sixty six at the Parish of Saint Luke in the County of Rowan aforesaid one grey gelding of the price of five pounds lawful money of Great Britain of the goods and chattels of one Robert Reed then and there being found feloniously did steal take and lead away against the Peace of our Lord the King his Crown and Dignity."

Revolutionary War pay voucher from the North Carolina State Dept. of Archies #16 has "This may certify that by the Upper Board of Auditors for the District of Salisbury Robert Begin Perkins was allowed Four Thousand Seven Hundred & Twenty Pounds currcy for Sundry Public Claims which he is to Receive agreeable to an act of the Gneral Assembly passed at Hallifax in Janry 1781." On the back of the voucher is "Presented on the 30th day of September 1791 on Loan to the United State and since rejected M.S. Kennerd Commissioner. Robert Bijan Pirkins Certificate L4720 Currey Principle L5.18.0
Interest L3.0.1 1/2
8.18.1 1/2
Apparently, based on #5349, he supplied three beeves to the Militia of North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina.

In the 1790 census for 10th Company, Lincoln Co. NC is a Robert Begin Perkins with three males over 16, three males under 16, and three females.

In Salisbury District Court's March term 1779, Robert Biggan Perkins gave Recog. Bond for Nicholas Welch.

On 25 November 1799, Robert Biggan Perkins to Littleton Pettitlo 56 acres bearing the date of 27 August 1762.

The Perkins' neighbors on Mt. Creek in NC were Wm. and Anna Woods Gant from VA. The Gants' eldest daughter Sarah (b. Apr 22, 1760) was married in 1782 to Ute Perkins. The Gants' other twelve children were: Giles, John, Frederick, Britten, Cader, Tyre, Abigail, Elizabeth, Amy, Rebecca, Nancy and LaVina Gant Townley.

Dianne Walker (dianne at perigee.net) wrote on 1/10/99:
I don't have but a few dates for the children; although some info shows Jacob's year of birth as 1788; Rebecca's year of birth as 1795; and John's year of birth as 1779. Maybe the years you have are when they married? Or maybe my years are off. Nevertheless, thank you for taking the time to write.

Enjoyed visiting your Perkins family website. I would like to make a correction on the parentage of Littleton Pittillo, husband of Elizabeth Perkins. His father was John Pittillo Sen and his mother was probably a Millington (no proof), but she was not Rachel. Rachel was John Sens. 2nd wife and clearly not the mother of his children as indicated by Burke County, NC. court records on the contested administration of John Pittillo Sen.'s estate.
Regards, D. Welch.

Children of ELIZABETH PERKINS and LITTLETON PITILLO are:
81......i......JAMES PITTILO, b. Abt. 1776, Lincoln County, North Carolina; d. Abt. 1854, White County, Tennessee.
.....ii......MILLINGTON PITTILO, b. Abt. 1780, Lincoln County, North Carolina.
82......iii......ELIZABETH PITTILO, b. November 10, 1782, Lincoln County, North Carolina, USA; d. December 30, 1863, Bountiful, Davis County, Utah, USA.

.....vi......MARTHA PITTILO, b. Abt. 1788, Lincoln County, North Carolina.
83......vii......JOHN LITTLETON PITTILO, b. Abt. 1789.

26. WILLIAM PERKINS (MOSES, RICHARD, RICHARD, ROBERT) was born 1770 in Rowan County, North Carolina, and died Abt. 1827 in Anderson District, South Carolina. He married MARY JENKINS April 25, 1797 in Lincoln County, North Carolina. She died in Pickens District, South Carolina. They had five children.

Perkins mailing list at Rootsweb.com, 1/5/04:
...He is descended from William Perkins who was born in 1762 in Rowan Co. NC. He was the son of Moses and Sabret who were in Rowan Co. by 1758. It is believed that this William married Mary , possibly in Wilkes Co. GA. This William moved to SC when the Indians ceded the land. William and his brother, Moses, Jr. settled in the Pendleton, SC district.
William wrote his will in 1816 primarily to punish his older children who had begun to be adults. His daughter Ruth had married Aaron Phillips, "for her disobedience" she was given one negro girl named Malinda and one shilling. My son Moses one shilling for his disobedience and he will not inherit the land where my mother now lives. William wrote a codicil and gave Moses one shilling and 100 acres of land taken from the lower east end of a 300 acre tract. (This is our line and eventually wound up in ALABAMA) In the codicil his daughter Sarah wife of Shadrack Harrison was given one negro girl names Hannach. Sarah had been given a child's part of the estate before she married Shadrack.
William died in 1827 and his will was proven in Anderson County, SC will book A page 322.

The children of William were:
1. a child possibly born in Georgia (others were born in Pendleton District)
2. Ruth (Rutha) married Aaron Phillips
3. Sarah married Shadrack Harrison
4. a daughter born 1793
5. Moses E. Perkins . 1797
6. daughter born in 1801
7. daughter born in 1803
8. daughter born in 1805
9. Josiah, b. 1808 married to Mary. He and three sons served in Confed. army.
10. daughter, born 1809
11. Joshua, b. 1811 married to Hannah
I have many other records if this is any help to you.
I am aware of the DNA project. We think that this family is descended from Richard in Maryland.

In Reply to: Re: William Perkins, 1770Rowan Co. NC by Jerry Moore of 5144
Hi Jerry, I don't know if this will help but here is info on some Perkins among my ancestors.
My gggrandmother, Sarah Knox DeArmond, had a dau out of wedlock by Col Jesse McKinney. She and the baby were abandoned. The girl, America, was born 1838 in either Pendleton or Spartanburg, SC. In 1842 Sarah married my gg grandfather, Samuel DeArmond, who reared America. They also had James R (killed in Civil War), Rebecca Carolina DeArmond m William Mallory Kennedy in 1868 in Cherokee Co., GA, Maryanne Texas, m Samuel P. Moore and settled in Ark. and son, John. America married William Perkins, son of Joshua and Hannah Perkins I believe in Pendleton Dist. SC. They had two children, Amanda and John H. (probably Harelson) Perkins. They were together in Pickens Dist SC with the DeArmand family in 1860. William was killed in Civil War and a brother, Samuel, was also killed during war. Joshua, father, left widow Hannah and eight children when he died in 1856. i.e. Josiah, William, Augustus, Mary, Moses, Samuel, Harriet, Elizabeth, Martha Adaline. I am not sure what happened to Amanda, dau of Wm and America. John came to Texas and had one son that I know of who was a good friend to my father. Willie (named after John's father, lived and died in TX without children. I don't know if John had others or not. America remarried in Arkansas but never had more children and died rather young in I believe Yell Co. Samuel DeArmond and Sarah Knox Dearman died in Yell Co ARK. I am going to family reunion in Yell Co. the end of May. I have met the descendants of America Perkins thru the internet and there will be a reunion of the Moores and DeArmand families, also Knox, but they want to know more about the Perkins family since the sister, America, was married to William Perkins. William died early in the war, 1862 He enlisted from Pickens Co., SC I believe. Samuel died ca 1864 (still a minor). Hannah Perkins was made guardian of the orphaned children of children of America and William in 1864 and in 1861 had been made guardian of her own dau, Harriett and Martha.
I don't know if this might be your line or not. Many of the same names show up, but don't they always? If you can fit any of this together, I would be happy for you and me. I thought maybe your William might have been the grandfather of my William. Does it make sense to you. Hope to hear from you.

Notes for ISAAC ROBINSON:
Hello:
I have been reading & enjoying your Perkins (of Lincoln Co NC) info. I think I'm related to them but haven't tied it together yet. My ancestor is Basil/Basel Dorsey who came to Linc Co about 1780 m Mary Robinson in 1783 & they went on to Franklin Co GA. Mary was the dtr of Isaac Robinson & Catherine ? It seems that this Catherine is related to the Perkins but I don't know just how as yet. Would you happen to have seen any info on the Dorseys coming into NC (family tradition says Basil was from MD) along with the other MD families. The current info available on Basil appears to be incorrect (son of Francis & Ann) because that Basil John lived, died & is buried in MD & also marr another lady. Once that story was started it just spread & several other Dorsey desc & I are trying to locate our Basil. He was closely associated with other MD families, such as the Bakers, Lowerys & Holbrooks. Any clue you could provide on this dilemma would be appreciated. I would love to find a book telling how & why these Dorseys came into the south. I wasn't able to find the reference (at this hr I can hardly find the keyboard) to Dorsey in the Perkins info although the search engine says it is there.

Thank you very much,

I am looking for Susannah PERKINS who married William C. MILLER in Carter TN on 10 October 1830. A letter written in 1867 from Washington TN indicates that they had a son, John MILLER. They were living in Kentucky or Illinois by 1867.
Susannah PERKINS was the daughter of Jacob Perkins and Nancy Ann Graves Perkins. She had the following sibilings: Joseph, John, Joshua, Jacob, Amos, and Lydia, Esther, Kizziah. Her sister, Sarah, died before 1819, and Sarah's sons were Benjamin D. Perkins and William L. Perkins.
I am researching this entire family as two of my direct ancestors, Joseph and Amos, were my 3rd great and 2nd great-grandfathers.

HI,
I am Larry Brule, grandson of a Perkins. Wanting more info on the Isaac, born 1777 in Rowan co, NC. I think this is the father of Isaac jr, b 1795 in KY, Daniel Reece,, b 1797 in KY, Elisha, b 1799 in KY and Solomon, b 1801 in KY. There are three girls also but Elizabeth, born 1805 in KY is the only one we know. They were born in Livingston co, KY. Twice, Isaac refers to himself as Isaac jr.We have all the family history we can find from here down. My Grandmother, Dora Belle Perkins, said our Perkins came from Devonshire, England. I don't remember any names but wished I'd listened to her. She died in 1981 at the age of 92. She was in the OK. land rush and raised in NE. Her father and grandfather, Zadoc Casey Perkins were both born in IL.
Any info I have, you are more than welcome to. Pat Clemons here in Texarkana, TX has helped me get this far.

14 Sept 2002 Ann Fourt to Rootsweb board:
Add'l into I've learned from early probate records of Tazewell Co. IL, may help other researchers:
.....Isaac Perkins, who was killed at the Battle of Stillman's Run in May 1832 (Black Hawk War), was a public probate administrator appointed by the county (confirmed by governor). He handled many probate estates for intestate decedents (people without wills).
.....Ironically, when he died it was without a will, and his brother Elisha M. Perkins was appointed administrator of his estate by the probate court. It took almost two years to get Isaac's estate settled. Elisha was subsequently appointed the county probate administrator after Isaac's death, and had to take over all the probate cases that Isaac had been handling as well as settle Isaac's own estate plus the new cases that arose.
.....My ancestor, Daniel Reese Perkins, was a brother to Elisha and Isaac. We find Daniel Reese, Solomon and Elisha as purchasers at various estate sales in Tazewell County in the early 1830s; many of these probate estates were handled by Elisha. Even the probate judge, Joshua C. Morgan, bids on some of the property that he is overseeing!.....

.....ii......BENJAMIN PERKINS, b. Abt. 1779, North Carolina.

Notes for BENJAMIN PERKINS:

41. ISAAC COOPER PERKINS (AVENTIN, RICHARD, RICHARD, ROBERT) was born Abt. 1790 in Halifax, North Carolina, and died January 09, 1852 in Nashville, Hemptstead, Arkansas. He married HANNAH GUEST October 28, 1810 in Wilkes County,Georgia, daughter of THOMAS GUEST and ELIZABETH ?. She was born December 28, 1787 in Wilkes County, Georgia, and died October 22, 1850 in Nashville, Hempstead, Arkansas.

Notes for ISAAC COOPER PERKINS:
WARNING!!!! The parentage of Isaac Cooper Perkins appears tainted. Other family trees say he is the son of Henry Perkins and Anne Ferrebee of Currituck, NC; Henry is the son of Henry Perkins and Abigail Brent. All descendants of Isaac would therefore be from that family, if those folks are correct, and not from the Baltimore, MD, Perkins.

Feb. 2003, Ann Fourt to Rootsweb message board:
.....I am a PERKINS researcher interested in the apparent connection between the Gists of Wilkes Co. GA in early 1800s, the Gists mentioned in Logan Co. KY deed abstracts in October 1809, and the PERKINS family originally from Baltimore Co. MD (Richard Perkins descendants).
.....Thomas Guest left a will in Wilkes Co. GA dated Nov. 15, 1807 that was probated Feb. 1, 1808 (Will Book HH, page 6). Witnesses were Uriel Farmer, Moses Jackson and Thomas Scott. He left his wife Elizabeth all land for life, to daughter Hannah Guest bed, etc., to son Thomas his land, to daughter Elizabeth, bed. To his little son Daniel all residue, his mother and sister (which one not specified) to be trustees.
.....In 1811 there is a record of the estate settlement, listing receipts for Thomas Guest for himself, Isaac Perkins for himself, Isaac C. Perkins as trustee for Elizabeth Perkins Sr. and Elizabeth Perkins (daughter presumably), all legatees. William Anderson was the administrator.
.....In the Wilkes Co. GA records we find that Hannah Guest married Isaac Perkins 28 October 1810 (after Thomas Guest Sr. died). A Sarah Guest married Joshua Perkins about this time as well.
.....I interpret the above to imply that the widow Elizabeth Guest re-married sometime by 1811 to a PERKINS, and her younger children took the PERKINS name, hence the naming of Elizabeth Perkins (daughter). Interesting that no mention was made of the younger son Daniel Guest. I do not know which PERKINS Elizabeth married.
.....Isaac C. Perkins I presume to be Isaac Cooper Perkins, a son of Aventin Perkins and Elizabeth ? (possibly a Cooper). There is some controversy about the parentage of Isaac C. Perkins, however.
.....Aventin Perkins was a proven son of Richard Perkins Jr. of Baltimore Co. MD. The Perkins family migrated from MD to NC and then to GA; later they went to Pendleton District SC by 1790. Aventin did have a brother named Joshua, who had a son Joshua born about 1758; seems unlikely that he is the one marrying Sarah Guest circa 1810, however.
.....These Wilkes Co. GA Perkinses are definitely the same Perkinses who were earlier in NC, as neighbors in Wilkes Co. GA include the Sherrills and the Simpsons. Early land grants from the 1770s in Wilkes Co. even list the origin as Rowan Co. NC.
.....My ancestor is Solomon Perkins, who lived in KY before migrating to IL in 1808. Now here is where things get interesting: in Logan County KY Deed Book B, there is an entry dated 11 October 1809 (this would be during the period that Thomas Gist's estate in Wilkes Co. GA is being settled), there is a power of attorney recorded on page 588 as follows: "Henry C. Gist appoints Thomas N. Gist to be his attorney to convey a tract in Randolph County Territory, beginning at the SE corner of the field occupied by the Widow Perkins, being near the Ohio River, 4,000 acres."
.....Nathaniel Gist received a Revolutionary War land warrant from VA for 6,666 acres of land for his service as a colonel in the war. Possibly these 4,000 acres in IL were part of his military warrant bounty land; don't know.
.....Henry C. Gist may be Henry Cary Gist, son of Col. Nathaniel Gist, born 1733, who died in KY in the early 1800s. (Nathaniel son of Christopher, son of Richard, son of Christopher). Henry Cary Gist did have a brother Thomas, but his name is given as Thomas C. Gist, not N, so I don't know if this is the right Henry C. Gist or not ...
.....This is a very tantalizing connection for my research, as records are pretty scarce in 1808 Illinois. My Solomon Perkins died before October 1809 as the reference to "the widow Perkins" indicates. Elizabeth (maiden name not yet known; she may have been a daughter of Reuben Simpson and Sarah Sherrill but this is pure speculation) and Solomon Perkins lived at Cave-in-Rock, IL which is indeed on the Ohio River as indicated in the power of attorney. At that time they were they only Perkinses in all of Illinois Territory.
.....Elizabeth Perkins remarried in 1811 to Nathaniel Armstrong and had several half-brothers. Children with Solomon Perkins included four sons and three daughters. Known sons were Isaac, b. circa 1795, killed in the Black Hawk War in 1832, Daniel Reese Perkins (my ancestor) born 1797, Elisha Perkins b. 1799, and Solomon b. 1801. There were also three younger sisters per the 1810 Census but we have not learned their names yet.
.....There is a possibility of one or more older PERKINS sisters as well since the 1790 Census for Pendleton District SC lists a Solomon Perkins with a wife and one daughter. I believe that this is the same Solomon Perkins who later went to Logan Co. KY in 1796 and then to Christian Co. and Livingston Co. KY around 1799.
.....Did a Perkins sister marry a GIST/GUEST perhaps?

26 Feb 2003 Ann Fourt:
.....I believe now that Isaac C. Perkins (and possibly also Joshua Perkins who married Sarah Guest) are sons of Henry Perkins of Currituck Co./Halifax Co. NC, NOT the Perkinses of Lincoln Co. NC.
.....This is based on Bible records of Henry Perkins that clearly list Isaac Cooper Perkins, b. 1790, as a son.
.....So it appears that in Wilkes Co. GA from 1770-1800 we have two different PERKINS groups, one from Henry Perkins of Curritcuk Co. and one from the Richard Perkins of MD group who migrated to Rowan Co. NC.
.....To make things more confusing, Henry Perkins had a son Solomon Perkins who served as a colonel in the Revolutionary War, and also a son Moses. Both of these names are also found in the Richard Perkins line of Baltimore Co. MD.
.....The GUEST/GIST connection is still most intriguing, however since both PERKINS groups have a connection. The GUEST/GISTs are also mentioned back in Baltimore Co. MD in the late 1600s and early 1700s in connection with Richard Perkins.
.....I found mention of a Solomon Perkins in Wilkes Co. GA in the 1810s; I believe he may be a son of Thomas Perkins, of the Richard Perkins of Baltimore Co. MD line and a brother to my ancestor Solomon Perkins. Does anyone know this Solomon Perkins?
.....I am trying to determine where my Solomon Perkins was during the 1780s; my information is that he would have been in his twenties at that time. One source says he married after 1784 (and it would have been prior to 1790 where he is listed on the Census at Pendleton district SC as married with one daughter).
.....Solomon had brothers named William Jr., Adam, Richard, Thomas, Benjamin and others; I am beginning to suspect that his father, William Perkins Sr., may have been a son of Isaac Perkins, son of Richard Perkins I of Baltimore Co. MD.
.....Solomon's brother Benjamin had a son Isaac and Solomon himself named his eldest son Isaac as well. This is just a suspicion at this point, however. The birth of William Perkins, son of Isaac, is listed in the St. George's Parish records in Baltimore Co. and gives the year as 1740. This date works better for him to be the Wm Perkins Sr. in Livingston Co. KY who dies in the early 1800s, than the Wm Perkins son of Richard Perkins II born about 1730.

Besides his bison herb, Perkins is proud of his cabin, a replica of the cabin in Belmont County in which his great-great-great-great grandfather Rueben Perkins lived. Rueben Perkins was married to Elizabeth Hupp, the first white woman born west of the Monongahela River, said Freddie Perkins. They were persuaded by Indians to settle in Belmont County during the French and Indian War, to protect an Indian lead mine from the British and French, said Freddie Perkins. Rueben's home was protected by a white feather over the door. Perkins' Wadsworth Township home displays a similar white feather placed there by a Cherokee Indian who visited from the North Carolina Cherokee lands. "The white feather was a sign to Indians that the house with the feather wasn't to be burned," said Perkins. "Our Rueben's cabin is his to a T. It's built of poplar with logs and stones from Rueben's original cabin. All the children helped build it." Sub: Sarah Golda Sitz

"Reuben Perkins, one of the pioneers of Captina, migrated to Belmont County in the spring of 1798, and settled near the creek. He was born on the Susquehanna River in the year 1767 and was of English extraction. In 1785, he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Hupp. This union resulted in seven children, Everhart, Reuben, Jr., Lewis, Elias, Elijah, Elizabeth and Rachel. At the time he located in the county he had a family of six children, the oldest only being eleven years of age. He first settled on what was known afterward as the Brown farm, situated below where what was known afterward as the Brown farm, situated below where Pott's mill now stands. The farm is owned at present by Michael Dorsey. There were only three families living in that neighborhood at that time, viz: Daniel Bean, who used to roam the forests clothed after the Indian fashion, his brother, -- Bean, and Robert Latty. It is said he was quite skillful and could turn his hand to almost anything. He manufactured powder, dressed his own buckskins, made plows and followed weaving. He killed many panthers, bears, wolves, deer, wild cats and other ferocious and dangerous animals. The stories he related about these were thrilling and interesting. The same fall he came to his new home in the wilderness a great calamity befell him - a loss he felt keenly - it was the death of his wife. After a few years he was married again to a Virginia lady, by whom he had five children. In 1805 he entered the quarter section of 28, in now Washington township, and which is now owned by some of his grandsons. On the 8th of April, 1816, whilst engaged in work he suddenly fell to the ground and expired of heart disease. His death was greatly felt by his children and friends."

Reuben Perkins Bible
.....The family Bible, which measures about 5" x 7" is now 207 years old. The first record reads "Reuben Perkins his bible in the year of our Lord 1791. Reuben Perkins was born ---illegible for 3 lines which appear to have been erased." The Bible contains handwritten records of births and deaths by at least four persons. The latest entry was 1919. Sometime after that date the Bible was delivered to a Belmont County Extension Agent. Margaret Perkins of Belmont who has protected the artifact for many years, states that the Agent gave the Bible to her father, Dennis Perkins perhaps as early as the 1930's. The late Frank Perkins told me several years ago that a Mr. Ruschak found the Bible among stored items in an old barn along Captina Creek. It is assumed that he gave it to the Agent.
.....Margaret Perkins has graciously passed the Bible to me for an indefinite time. It is being protected and will eventually be given to a younger generation. Herewith is the information pertaining to births & deaths as recorded by our ancestors:

Elizabeth Perkins was born February the 23 1770

Notes for ROSANNA PERKINS:
Both the following paragraphs are from the History of Belmont County.

"Reuben Perkins was born in Harford Co., Maryland in 1767. He married Elizabeth Hupp in Washington Co., Pennsylvania in 1785. In 1798, he came with his seven children to settle in the Captina Valley just west of what is now Alledonia. Reuben died in 1816 and is buried in the Perkins Cemetery on Co.

James died in 1866 and his wife Nancy died in 1887. Both are buried in the Bend Fork Cemetery."

Notes for JONAS GROVES:
The Groves family has a tradition to the effect that the family was originally that of Von Graf in Germany, that the ancestors were expelled for political reason, and later came to Maryland with Lord John Calvert, first Earl of Baltimore. Jonas Groves, the father of David and grandfather of Samuel C., was born in Maryland, and was with a brother and sister, brought to Noble county, Ohio, by his parents, locating in the neighborhood of Mt. Ephraim when the country was all new...........
From History of Guernsey County, Ohio 1911, by Sarchet pages 773-774
1820 Census of Ohio (p.146) lists a Jonas Groves in Belmont County.

Jonas Jr. is said to have been in Jefferson Co. in 1805, then Goshen Twp. Belmont Co. in 1808. Census shows him in "Waynes" in 1820 and 1830.

Jonas' friends were Joseph, William, and Barnett Groves. They were among the first settlers in Kirkwood Twp., Belmont Co. and they jointly bought land in April 1830. Reference is: "Early Ohio Settlers -- Purchasers of Land in SE Ohio 1800-1840". Marietta, Washington Co., Ohio. Flagstaff Library 929.37719 B534c. Jonas had three listings dated 1816 - 1828.

History of Belmont Co., OH, says Joseph, Wm., & Barnett GROVES, brothers from PA, settled in Kirkwood T., ca. 1800. On 23 Feb. 1802, Barnett GROVES purchased land in Kirkwood T (R 6, T 9). Barnet(t) may have died before 1820, as he was on the 1810 Census, Kirkwood T., but the 1820 Census had a Hannah, who might have been his widow, p. 260, same p. as Wm.

Will in Fayette County, Kentucky, dated 29 Aug 1825 and probated in September mentioned sons Aquilla, Reuben, William, and Eute; and daughters Rutha, Dicey, Elizabeth, Rachel, and Nancy in Maryland and Pennsylvania, and Avarilla Manlove and Sarah Hurst

John Leavell:
.....Thanks so very, very much for your posting of the Perkins information to the Web!!!!! You have made this and all of your posting a very good location. I commend you for your work. All of this is COPIOUS PRAISE but I do really admire what you have done.
.....I am sending a copy of this to Tammie Smith at the above address as she is also a Manlove researcher. Here below is the paragraph that so very much got our attention:
.....241. William Perkins (Reuben, Wm, Rd) was born 10 July 1752 St. George's Parish, Baltimore, MD, and died ca. 1825. Presumably he is the William who left a will in Fayette Co. KY dated 29 August 1825 and probated in September. He named sons Aquilla, Reuben, William, and Eute; and daughters Rutha, Dicey, Elizabeth, Rachel, and Nancy in Maryland and Pennsylvania, and Avarilla Manlove and Sarah Hurst. (This is located in your Third Generation area).
.....There is a Bartholomew Manlove who was born in Delaware and who later made the move apparently with his family from there to Kentucky to the Bourbon, Scott - Fayette Counties area. He is listed in the census of 1810, 1820 and 1830 in Kentucky. He made the move to Texas in 1832 and a passport
application to Stephen H. Austin requested that he be allowed to become a citizen. That area was Mexico at that time. His wife Aberilla was listed on the request as well as the number of his children.
.....The 1850 Texas census listed his wife, Aberilla Manlove, and she was shown to have been born in Maryland. All subsequent censuses have also shown the same information.
.....We have many historical items and narratives on Bartholomew but his wife only lurked in the back- ground. Now because of your listing perhaps we have some family for her!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have searched for any information on her for at least 10 years. This was truly a "stonewall".
.....We will request a copy of the will of William Perkins but in the meantime; do you have any info on Avarilla (Surely she and Aberilla are one and the same)?
.....I would imagine that you have much more than you can answer but just a simple reply to this letter will be deeply appreciated.
..... Thanks, Roy E. Malone, Granbury, Texas.
P. S. This just bounce back. Looks like I had trouble with the figure before the x in your address.

My father is Billie Ray. His name was supposed to be William. He was born June 2, 1933. He married my mother, Adeline Pauline Lietzow in February, 1952. I was born October 3, 1953. I have two brothers, Keith Wayne and Brian Ray. My parents and brothers live in the St. Louis, Missouri area. My father moved from Ripley County as soon as he reached working age. His father had died when he was six, and his mother in 1953. I have 3 children and we live in Texas. I do have more information, including a photo of Thomas Granville Lee and his wife. Write back please. My family, like everyone else, is looking for a possible connection to Robert E. Lee. Looks like our family was pretty remarkable even without the connection. Old Abner was a busy guy.

.....I am not related to your line of Lee's, but did find this while searching for mine. It shows your Abner Lee was born 1760 in North Carolina and died 7 Oct 1852 in Jackson County, Tennessee. It shows he married Sally Miller on 12 Sept 1835 in Jackson County, TN It states that in 1855 she would have been 60 years old. It shows their issue as Alsy or Ailcy VAn Zandt who was 49 in 1855 and a grandson, son presumably of Alsy, John G VanZandt who was 27 in 1855. It shows the name of an Isacc Van Zandt, "clergyman", but it states it does not explain his relationship to this family. These came from extracts of those that applied for military pensions.
.....It states that he did live in Washington County, VA during the Rev War and after the Rev he moved to TN and also lived in Ill for a period of 1 year. He had applied for the pension in 1846 in Jackson County, TN. She applied for the BLW there in 1855. It states that he died at the home of his daughter, above named in Jackson Co., TN on 7 Oct 1852 and that he had lived in her home for a period of two years at the time of his death. Hope this helps.

.....ii......SOLOMON WILSON, b. Abt. 1791, Virginia.
.....iii......WILLIAM B. WILSON, b. Abt. 1800, Tennessee.

54. WILLIAM WILSON (MARY HUTCHESON, MARY PERKINS, RICHARD, ROBERT) He married HULDAH SHERRILL June 15, 1786 in Greene County, Tennessee, daughter of AQUILLA SHERRILL and LUCRETIA WILSON. She was born 1770, and died Bef. 1840 in Jackson County, Alabama.

Notes for WILLIAM WILSON:
Under the treaty of Calhoun dated July 8, 1817 white men we empowered to claim reservations of land in Jackson County Alabama based on their wives status as Cherokee indians. Accordingly on July 11, 1818 William Wilson was awarded reservation #128 on the Flint River "in the right of his wife" with a family of 3. This means that Hulde (Hulda) was a Cherokee Indian. This comes down through her mother who was a Cherokee Indian. Her mother was Lucretia Wilson who married Aquila Sherrill.

In Reply to: Lucretia Wiilson and daughter Hulde by: Linda Goda
.....I don't believe the William Wilson who obtained one of the Wilson Reservations on the Flint River in Madison Co AL in right of his wife and the Thomas Wilson who also obtained Reservation same place (a few miles north of William) in his own right are the family of Hulda (Sherrill)and William Wilson. Their son Thomas at least came into Jackson Co 1819, then back and forth to Franklin Co TN for the next 14 years. William joined Mud Creek Church in Jackson Co by June 1820 about 30 miles from the Reservation. Had the reservationist moved the 30 or so miles to the Bellefonte area he would have lost his Reservation land. June 28 1823 the William Wilson with Reservation and others petitioned for fee simply title. The Thomas Wilson Reservation was granted in fee simple in 1819 under a different treaty. In 1830 there were 3 Williams in Jackson Co and 1 in Madison Co. Major Thomas Wilson freely acknowledged and raised his mulatto grandson b. 1864 but never said anything about Indian parentage, and apparently he was a great talker. Also none of these Wilsons is on the 1835 Indian census Jackson Co - I could not locate the Madison Co enumeration due to the extremely poor quality of the microfilm.
.....One other point that should be clarified, Hulda (Sherrill) Wilson died after 1829, but before 1840. She is included in William's hh 1830 but not 1840 census. A new membership list of Mud Creek Church was drawn up 1829, her name was on it. The clerk then added names as new members joined and made notations as members died, moved or were dropped from membership.

Children of WILLIAM WILSON and HULDAH SHERRILL are:

Can anyone help with the children of these two people? I need to know if Ephraim Perkins born c1795 NC and Jesse Perkins born 1798 in NC or TN are their children. We know that Ephraim & Jesse are brothers and that both were in St. Clair county, IL in 1820...so was Joshua, but we have no proof that they are his sons. Ephraim later returned to Benton co., TN and Jesse went to Crawford & Scott county, Arkansas.
Any information appreciated. Thanks. Sara

The other son died shortly there after also without a will, but a change in the law resulted in Alfred and his three sisters sharing equally in that half.

In Burke Co. NC Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions, July Sessions 1818, Alfred Perkins filed documents stating his father died intestate in or about 1793, leaving considerable land, and he named his siblings and asked that the land be divided up.

Biographical Sketches from Burke County, NC
.....from articles published in Newspaper in 1894
.....These sketches were originally written by Col Thomas George Walton (1815-1905). 1st published in the old Morganton Herald in 1894
PARSON ROBERT MILLER
"MARY PERKINS, daughter of JOHN PERKINS, SR., married the Rev. ROBERT JOHNSON MILLER, a native of Scotland, a clergyman of the Episcopal Church, a high-toned gentleman of the old school, dignified and blunt in manner like most Scotsmen I have known; yet benevolent and kind. He joined in marriage the descendants of the old pioneers, and baptised their children, and prayed that God's blessing might rest upon them. He married my father and mother in 1803. His dress at that time was knee breeches, black silk stockings, low shoes, with silver knee and shoe buckles. He had a rubicund complexion and powdered hair. Thus he stood, prayer book in hand, a fine specimen of an English
parson, of Goldsmith's days."
...................."A man he was to all the country dear
....................And passing rich with forty pounds a year."

"He lived on a plantation left to his wife, MARY PERKINS, on Lower Creek, (Caldwell County) his residence near the roadside named after his wife, "Mary's Grove." I remember his baptising a child of one of Burke's leading citizens, who prided himself in always redeeming his pledges. (In similar
cases many I fear do not feel the responsibility resting upon them, in becoming sponsors for children and taking upon themselves the solemn vows and promises required in baptism). A large assemblage of persons were present, in what was then a part of the present ( in 1894) building of the Presbyterian
Church. After the usual preliminary prayers, etc., preceding the promises to be made by the Godfather and mother, the question:"Dost thou, in the name of this child, renounce the devil and all his works, the vain pomp and glory of the world" and so on to the end. To the astonishment of the congregation the
response came from the father, loud and distinct, "I do not sir." The parson looked at him sorrowfully in the face and said. "you will on the part of your child?" He replied, "I will on his part." "I wish you could say as much for yourself," said the parson. This is the only instance on record, so far as I know, where the matter had proceeded, as far as in this case, where the parent could not conscientiously, and therefore would not, make a promise which he did not intend to fulfill - to his credit be it said."

"ALEXANDER PERKINS, brother-in-law of PARSON MILLER, was a profane man, and frequently sorely tried the patience of the good man. Illustrating this, on one occasion, he got the upper hand of the parson. He was on the way to market, with a heavily loaded wagon drawn by a team of spirited horses. The public road passed in front and near the parson's residence, near the summit of a hill. The horses, refusing to pull; PERKINS, irritated, beating the horses, cursing and swearing, brought the parson out. And rebuking him for his profanity, he said, "Brother ALEX, don't you see that all this abuse of the dumb brutes and the taking of the name of your Maker in vain, does no good? Why, then, do you persist in doing so?" "Well", he said,"Parson, that is so. I have tried cursing and beating them with no effect.
