Notes for UTE PERKINS:
Ute Perkins was described by a descendant as medium tall, with a light complexion and blue eyes. He had the earliest birthdate of any Mormon. He was drafted in 1773 to Capt. John McDowell's Company, then was in Capt. David McFall's Co. He was shot through the breast with a musketball that went through and lodged in a shoulder-blade; his pension number was R8118 NC. From the NC State Dept. of Archives, Revolutionary War Pay Voucher No. 4485, Morgan District: "This certifies that the Board of Auditors have allowed Ute Perkins Twenty Pounds four Shillings for Militia Service agreeable to an act of General Assembly in such case made & given under our hands this 28th day of August 1784." In 1789, he left for Abbeville and Pendleton Counties, South Carolina. In 1799 he went to White Co., Tennessee. In 1827, he traveled by oxen team to Fort Green township, Illinois, where he was the first white settler. His death took place in Hancock Co., which is now Webster County, Illinois.

Ute moved to Abbeville Co., South Carolina in 1787, then moved to White Co., TN in 1802, moved to Fort Green, IL (Perkinsville, Hancock Co., IL) were first white family in area around Carthage & Nauvoo, IL. When he joined church, in 1837, he boasted as being the oldest member at that time. States birth date as 15 Jul 1761 Bladen Co., NC

Revolutionary War Pension Application R.8118:
Summery: Ute Perkins was born July 15, 1761 in Lincoln County, North Carolina. While residing in Lincoln County, North Carolina he enlisted in May, 1778 and served two months as a private in Captain Joseph McDowell's company, Colonel Brevard's North Carolina regiment. About three months later, he volunteered and served three months as a private in Captain David McFall's Company, in the same regiment.
Ute Perkins moved from Lincoln County, North Carolina in 1779 to Abbeville County, South Carolina where he lived for about twelve years, then moved to Pendleton Co., South Carolina and lived about five years. He then moved to White County, Tennessee where he lived about twenty years, then to Morgan County, Illinois and from there to Hancock County.
Ute applied for a pension 1 Dec 1834, then a resident of Carthage, Hancock Co., Illinois. The claim was not allowed because he did not give six months service, as required by the pension laws.

I hope you receive this as I have no idea how old the information on your site is. I have been enjoying your Perkins genealogy on the Internet. Thank you.
I wanted to clarify a couple of items on my gr-grandfather, Ute Perkins, husband of Sarah Gant.
They moved from White County Tennessee to Illinois. Several of his family members and he settled along Crooked Creek and it became known as 'the Perkins Settlement'. It finally became known as the town of Macedonia. It was not "Fort Green" but Fountain Green Township, which is Hancock County, not Webster County. After the Mormons left the area, (Nauvoo, Carthage, Macedonia) the name of the town was changed to Webster. Ute died in Macedonia, (now Webster),Hancock County, Illinois. For a long time they thought he died in Nauvoo, and a headstone was placed there, but he is actually buried in the Webster Cemetery. The family placed a new headstone for him and several other family buried there just a few years ago. I live in SW Missouri and have visited Webster.
Indeed Ute has one of the oldest birth dates in the church, but his wife, Sarah is older than him. I don't know who they are, but the church records say there are others with dates older.
I hope this clarifies a couple of items.

"In the name of God Amen. I Robert Biggin Perkins of Lincoln County and State of North Carolina being in perfect mind and memory do make and ordain my last will and testament I do first of all commend my soul to God who gave it and my body to the dust from whence it came there to rest till the morning of the Resurrection as to my worldly property which God hath Blest me with I leave unto my Beloved wife Betsy Perkins my house and land also one negro woman by the name of Hannah and one negro boy the name of Jackrias.

76. REUBEN PERKINS (ROBERT BIGGEN, RICHARD, RICHARD, RICHARD, ROBERT) was born Abt. 1770 in Lincoln County, North Carolina. He married (1) NANCY SPELLMAN Abt. 1791. She was born Abt. 1777, and died Abt. 1845. He married (2) SARAH BONARE October 23, 1804 in Athens, Fayette, Kentucky, USA.

Notes for REUBEN PERKINS:
One source says Reuben went to Arkansas. One says he married Sarah Bonare, daughter of Arthur Boner, 23 October 1804 in Fayette County, KY and died after 1837, being buried in Shiloh Cemetery, Indiana. Steven Wacker says Reuben married Nancy Spillman 1791 and died 4 March 1834 in Waynesburg, Lincoln, KY. Who has proof one way or another? My own guess is that Sarah Bonare is a second wife, but if Nancy lived until 1845 there must have been a divorce.

"Every Loving Daughter and Grandchildren All:
.....I once more take up my pen in hand to wright you a few lines to let you no we are both still in the land of the living and in moderate health at this time hoping these lines may find you all in good health of body and of mind. We received your letter of May and was truly glad to hear from you and to hear you was all well and doing well I have neglected wrighting to you till now One reason was three of your sisters was in a family way. Vina was brought to bed the 5th of June and had a daughter ded born but she done very well and Jane was brought to bed the 20 of June and had a fine daughter and is doing well. Becca was brought to bed the 1 day of August and had a fine daughter and is doing well. Matta Duck is still in bad health but she can still go about. She was here a few weeks back and stade better than a week. Thomas Duck and the two boys is well and Mary Duck is still living with Tom and she has her health moderate.
.....We heard from the McOriers this week. They was well with the exception of the youngest girl and she was better.
.....You wanted to know how old we are. I was 72 years the 21 of June. Your mother was 72 years old the 31 day of May. I was born 1782 June the 21. your mother was born 1782 May 31. I have had my health better this summer than some years past. Till lately my health has not been very good. I am much better at present. Your mothers health is tollarable well, but her breath is short and she makes a bod out of walking. She can make out to walk over to Baccas and back. We make our home at James Sloops. Your mother has not been to where Jane lives as yet, but talks of going soon. Jane has seven children, 4 boys and 3 girls. Vina has 4 children 2 boys and 2 girls. Bacca has 10 children 7 girls and 3 boys all well and harty. There is a great deal of sickness in our County and a great many deaths. Still we are all spared to the present. O how thangful! We ought to be. We had a frost in the Spring that hurt the wheat crops very much and we have a drouth that have cut the corn crops very short. Wheat is worth a dollar per bushel and it is thought corn will be worth a dollar per bushel from the heap. Bacon is worth from 6 to 7 cents per pound Micajah Southard has sold out here and moved to White County and took his father and mother with him. The old folks was in moderate health.
.....We heard from Ute this summer and he was well and teaching school in bracket town. We have not heard from Union Georgia for sometime. We are looking for a letter from there now. They was all well when we heard from there last. I want you to wright to us as soon as you get this letter and wright about old brother Demcy if you no anything about him and try to let him see this letter and tell him to wright to me direct his letter to Athens, Tennessee, if you can't go to see him let some of the boys go to see him and try to get acquainted as you are at a great distance from all your kin. Chiam stated she would look for him this fawl. We are both as well satisfied as the nature of the case will admit as our children is so scattered that we can't see them as we would wish but we must try to be patient. We can say what many others cannot say. ten children and all alive as far as we no and we 72 years old. James Sloop raised 158 bushels of wheat which will bread us 1 year and bacon is so low he has nearly enough to do him another year. So I shall conclude my letter by remembering our love to all.

92. SAMUEL SIMPSON (REUBEN, AVERILLA PERKINS, RICHARD, RICHARD, ROBERT) was born January 03, 1783 in North Carolina, and died in Johnson County, Arkansas. He married (1) MARGARET PORTMAN November 09, 1802 in Lincoln County, Kentucky. He married (2) ELIZABETH FULTON April 06, 1807 in Wayne County, Kentucky.

Notes for SAMUEL SIMPSON:
He appeared on the census of 1810 at Wayne County, Kentucky. He was 13 Apr 1819 at Wayne Co., Kentucky. He appeared on the census of 1820 at Wayne County, Kentucky. He appeared on the census of 1850 at Lawrence Co., Indiana; The Samuel Simpson who was on the 1830 census in Wayne County, KY was aged 20-30 and was too young to be the son of Reuben. There was no Samuel Simpson on the 1840 census. I believe that Samuel Simpson, son of Reuben and Sarah, left Wayne Co., KY after selling his land in 1827. Samuel's brother, Elisha moved to Lawrence County, Indiana so they might have gone together.

Notes for JACKSON SIMPSON:
10/3/2004
Hi!
I found your site and noticed it had a lot of Simpsons. I am looking for a specific Simpson named Jackson Simpson. I see you have one that is listed. My Jackson Simpson was born in 1818 and according to 1850 Census, he was living in Union County, NC. He did live in Mecklenburg in later Census. His son, Marquis is in the 1850 Census. That is my line. Marquis moved to Virginia and that is where my Simpsons stop. Would you know my Jackson Simpson? I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. :)
Thank you.

117. EVERHARDT PERKINS (REUBEN, RUBEN, WILLIAM, RICHARD, ROBERT) was born November 26, 1786 in Pennsylvania, and died March 1877 in Belmont County, Ohio. He married HANNAH NICHOLASON May 11, 1814 in Belmont County, Ohio, daughter of JOSEPH NICOLASON and SARAH WEBSTER. She died Abt. 1852.

Notes for EVERHARDT PERKINS:
In 1850 he was 64, a farmer, worth $7500; his wife was Hannah, 56, born PA. Four children, born OH, were living with them: Esther, Joseph, Precilla, Marilla. In 1870, he was 81; keeping house for him were Priscilla, 23, and Marilla, 19. Either his daughters dropped decades off their ages, or he had granddaughters with the same names. The local newspaper for 8 March 1877 reports that Averhart Perkins, old settler on Captina, died Friday age over 90 years. Joseph Perkins later became his administrator.

EVERHART PERKINS, deceased, was born in Pennsylvania. He came with his parents to Belmont county in about 1798, and located on Captina creek, where they resided a number of years. From this point they removed to Cat's run. In 1802, our subject married Miss Hannah NICHOLSON. He reared a family of nine children. His wife died in 1852. He lived until he reached the 103d year of his age. He early united with the Friends' church. It is said that in his young days, when game abounded plentifully in the forests, he delighted in hunting and used to take a faithful animal of his with him, which he would load down with game and then let it loose, when it returned home to his cabin door and awaited for some one of the family to relieve it of the burden. He entered over seven hundred acres of land in Washington township.

Diary of Elijah Perkins

The following narrative given by Elijah Perkins & hand written by Leroy Welsh appears to be vintage 1876. It was found by Carolyn Ford among the possessions of her grandfather Luther Perkins, a direct descendent of Reuben Perkins via Everhart. It was written on nine pages of lined paper and folded inside a wrapper that had contained U.S. News & World Report. It was marked "Diary of Elijah Perkins, Belongs to Rex Armstrong". Accordingly, Mrs. Ford sent the very fragile document to the late Virginia Armstrong Smythe in 1993. It's current disposition is unknown. However, a copy was retained and its contents are presented as deciphered with comments offered in parenthesis...

Elijah Perkins, B. 18 Nov. 1792, Will be 84 years of age the 18th of Nov. 1876. (Elijah's birth date was 17 Nov, 1794) Father's name Reuben: came from Ten Mile, PA. (more precisely. Black Dog Hollow near Millsboro) I was about three or four years old then. I don't know where we crossed the Ohio River. Settled first on the Brown farm near Dorsey's Mills. (York Township - Sections 27, Captina P.O.) Beans lived where Isaac Ramsey lives -Steems (Steens?) lived just above us. I think the battle of Captina was fought before we came. (In spring 1794 the Battle of Captina was fought at the mouth of Cove run. Thirty Shawnee Indians commanded by Chief Charley Wilky, battled fourteen men from Baker's Fort [one mile below mouth of Captina on the Virginia side of the Ohio] commanded by Capt. Abram Enochs. John Baker, a volunteer, was killed as well as several others.) at the forks of Capteen a surveyor was killed by the Indians as was supposed either just before of just after we came. Mother died down the creek. Father up here. Father about fifty when he died. Called Capteen at first: named Captina. I don't know why Anderson Run was so called. (Anderson Run flows down the valley on the East side of Armstrong's Mills parallel to Route 9) Hardesty flood - Capteen very high then. Hasn't been so high since. (The Hardesty Flood occurred in 1818. On McMahan's creek a John Hardesty, wife & five children drowned.) Bears, wolves, beavers, have seen plenty of others: squirrels, black and gray about equally divided. have seen elk, gray foxes, deer, plenty of wild cats, plenty of painters (?) , rattlesnakes, lots of'em, plenty of eagles, plenty of Boo-owls. I remember seeing Indians when I was small. We lived near Dorseys four of five years. We moved upon Cats Hill near mouth of Cat's Run in forks of Cat's run. Lived there one summer. Then moved to the cave just South of here. Father entered the land, 160 acres. Reuben Perkins' widow lives there now. (I believe he is referring to Reuben Jr his brother and not his father). We lived there about ten years. Father died there. I think Everhart is sixteen or seventeen years older than I am (Everfhart was 8 years older). He has the original record of all our ages - my fathers old Bible. I know this. (A brief narrative concerning the Reuben Perkins Bible & its records are attached.) The last time I saw any wolves was about forty years ago. Thirteen wolves attacked a ten (two?) year old steer in cove, near by. I heard them and got close to them before they desisted. When I got to the house I heard them again. I took gun and went down. They had killed the steer and all gone but one, I killed it. Before that in early times it was a common thing for wolves to attack the sheep. The bears would kill the hogs. A rattlesnake killed a man named Davis who lived near where Sam Danford now lives. Davis lived only about a half hour after he was bitten. This happened when we were living near Dorseys. I have heard of the name Charles Wilke. Have heard of the girl rescued by Luis Wetzel. I can't recollect the name. Early settlers. Sish (?) & Tim & Sye Collins, John __?__. It was Abner Barret who married Ann Collins. I have always heard that this was the first wedding in Capteen. Squire David Ruble married them. This was about one year after we came to Capteen. The Collinses and Barrett's, both families came to Capteen next spring after we came. James, Isaac, Tim and Abner Barrett all bros. (?) Robt, _?_ came shortly after we did. Abner Barrett was the first black smith ever on Capteen. Barrets lived on Cat's Hill, shop near by. Abner, the black smith, the same who married Miss Collins. The Collins lived below in forest below the old Brown farm. The first child born on Capteen was in my father's family. About a year, may be less after we came to Ohio. The child died young. Old Joseph Baker, who lived near where Schaeffer now lives is supposed to have killed the last Indian killed in our neighborhood. Did it because the Indians killed John Baker at battle of Captina. This (the killing of the last Indian) was said to have occurred while we were living at Dorseys. I used to hear of Indian George. Wm Death was one of the first settlers living near foot of Cat's Hill. I think that my Mother was the first of the early settlers on Capteen to die. I was between three and four years old when she died - shortly after we came to Ohio. Six children of us came with family __?__,___?__: Everhart, Reuben, Elias, Elijah, Rachel and Elizabeth. none except the one that died after we came to Ohio. Of all these, only Everhart and I are living. One child died before I was born in Penna. They called it__?__. (the family Bible lists Luis born 9-29-1789) Four children before me. None of them twins. Danl Thomas was the first to live on the land which he entered. Old John Brown just above at mouth of Rocky Fork, old John Aldridge, and old David Blue. John & Daniel Walters just below mouth of Rocky Fork. Seth Wards was the first corn - cracker, near mouth of Bend Fork. Was built 75 or 80 years ago. Distillary built a good many years afterwards. Seth first settled in the house where John Danford now lives, died there. Aron & Timothy Ward, half brothers of Seth lived down the creek. First school house on Capteen was the one at the mouth of School House Run. McKnight and Kirkbride the first teachers. The first school house up the creek was built at mouth of run just west of A. Caldwell on opposite side of creed. From Caldwell house on Jennings Perkins' land. (Elias's son) Runs (the land) south into creek. Built over sixty years ago. The mouth of school house Run (school) was built about a year after we came to Ohio. First teacher in the house near Caldwell's was Joseph Martin. James Starr was the first preacher. The Moors came to Ohio a year or two after we did and settled up the creek near Amster Moors. The old man was Michael. Jacob, Isaac and Michael were his children. Tobias Moore his brother, came with family about same time to same region of the country. They came from Penna. James Starr used to preach among these Moores. I have heard Rev. Fordyce preach. He preached not long after Starr preached here. Wooden hoes generally, wooden plains always, harrows all wood, used withes (?) for fastening double trees, ropes for trace chains collars, best ones made of corn husks. All wore moccasins. Those who wore anything on their heads made hats out of straw or other material. Biggest part of them didn't wear anything. Wore shoes afterwards on feet then boots. Saw umbrella, first one about forty or fifty years ago. For a good axe had to pay $4.00. $3 for a hand saw. Most people used sleds. A man named David Hart had the first wagon I ever knew of. He lived near mouth of Cats Run. The first store in this country was at Newellstown. (St. Clairsville) Owned by Jas. Caldwell. Josiah Dillon had the next one. It was on Capteen. Caldwell furnished him the goods. Calico generally 50 cts. and at St. Clairsville Dillon used to ask the same. Whiskey generally 25 cts. a gallon. Grapes were introduced about twenty years ago. Dillon's salt well was bored by McLaughlin. Sharpened our scythe with a hammer. Never ground them. Rough whetstones. Straight handles. Old Seth Ward had the first orchard I knew of on Capteen. At mouth of Bend Fork. I don't remember that McKnight taught at Shipmans school house. This school house built only about thirty years ago. I thought the Alex Danford brick house was the first one. (brick house) Perhaps Tommy Armstrong built the first and Ambers Danford the second. (Alex Danford lived in the house built by Ambrose Danford ca.l830) Amber expended only one dollar on cash when building this house. Paid for material and labor in pork. When we first came there were hogs running wild in the woods without owners. The hogs would eat the rattlesnakes, the old wood hogs. The "wood hogs" made better meat. Wheat growing in new ground on the creek bottoms would turn red, become "sick". People couldn't eat it without being made sick by it. Didn't have any nails in those days. John Danfords house the first I ever knew shingled. Joseph Martin built it. First plank floor also. It was a hewed log house, the first one I ever knew of. The first Squire in this Tp. (Washington Township) was Isaac Moore, held the office for 21 years. Only one at first. I think people generally bought the material and made their own powder (gun). One dollar a pound. Got lead and flints somewhere across the river. Salt brought from east at first on pack horses, $10.00 per bu. --John Devore the first peddler I knew of through here. Carried miscellaneous articles. Feet frozen. Seth Wards mill was the first on the creek. Windello (?) Mill was built 5 or 6 or 7 years afterwards. It was the second. I think Seth Wards still house was the first. Don't know anything about the Dorsey furnace for making iron. Old Jim Cree was an early settler. He is the discoverer of salt on Capteen - at Dillons. I used to dig lots of ginseng 25 cts. a lb. green. Took it to Wheeling or St. Clairsville. Didn't have any New Orleans Mollasses in those days. Plenty of maple trees, people made their own mollasses. Percussion caps twenty or thirty years ago. John Delaney best jumper (?) I ever knew. Early settler, but not among the first. The DeLaneys lived where the Groveses live on Bend Fork. My Grandfather's name was Everhart. (Hupp) He was in the Indian Wars. When we came, Belmont Cy. wasn't organized. There were no townships. Archy Woods surveyed this county and Monroe. The first men who raised tobacco around here were Ben and Jesse Justice (?) who came from Md. Some thirty yrs. ago. No broom corn at first. We made brooms out of hickory. Been raising broom corn something over thirty years. First we had peaches, then apples, then cherries. A little red potato and a little white one. The first two varieties that I recollect. No rats when we came but the big woods rat. Afterwards came the Black rats, then the Norway rats, which cleaned out the others. Grafted trees came around 25 or 30 yrs. ago. Used to be lots of sarvices, hill grapes & hickory nuts in the creek bottoms. Grew black walnut, white walnut, ash, white oaks, etc. Sub: Steve Cook - October 9, 2000

Information from book, Noble County History. Page 474:

One of the oldest residents and best informed citizens of the township is Hiram Danford. He was born in Belmont County in 1802, and settled in 1823 on the farm which he now occupies. (Seneca Twp) He has the only stone house in the township. In 1820 he married Rachel Groves. Fourteen children were born of this union, all of whom lived to be men and women, except one, who died in infancy. Their names were William, Jonas, Samuel, Isaac and David (twins), Lewis, Nancy (hathaway), Elizabeth (Lashley), Joseph, John B. Bathsheba (Hiatt), Peter and Rachel R. (Shepherd). Mrs. Danford died in 1865. In the same year he married Mrs. Danford (nee White), a native of Jefferson County. Mr. Danford is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. He has served twenty years as township trustee. When he came to the township, Mr. Danford bought eighty acres of land of Jacob Dailey. He has owned, all told, over one thousand acres. the story of one land entry is here given. Shortly after the War of 1812, when he was fourteen years of age, he and his brother entered 160 acres of land. At that time there was a great scarcity of money, and in order to relieve those who had entered lands and had not been able to make the final payment, a law was passed through the instrumentality of General Harrison, to divide all tracts entered by a north and south line throught the center, and permit the settler to take his choice of the two lots, and by paying fifty dollars in addition to the first payment secure title to eighty acres. A limited time was set for the payment, and in order to take advantage, Mr. Danford rode from Washington Township (Then Wayne Township), Belmont County, across swollen creeks, through the winderness to Marietta. He was about a week on the trip, but reached Marietta in time to save the land. This tract he sold to Lemuel Rucker and it is now owned by Isaiah Rucker.

Obituary
Hiram Danford an old risident (sic) of Seneca Township, this County died on the 5th day of this month at 8 o'clock p.m. and was buried at the Glady cemetery on the 7th inst. Rev. McRa (sic) officiating assisted by Rev. Wm. Danford. Mr. Danford, if we are not misinformed, was born in Belmont county Ohio, in 1802, and removed to the farm on which he died in 1825. He was the father of fourteen children - 9 boys and 5 girls; one of them dying in infancy. For the last 33 years of his life he was a staunch and consistent member of the M.E. church, and was eminently a man of strong moral conviction, and was noted for his love of peace, and his great, good qualities as a friend and neighbor. In his last sickness, besides his extreme old age, he had a dropsical swelling on one leg and foot which at times was extremely aggravated (sic) and very painful. He leaves a widow (his second wife) who, we understand will go back to Monroe county where she lived when they were married.

The Goodspeed Publishing Co., 1887
"Ephraim Perkins, Dorsey P. Hudson and William Woods settled about two miles north of where Camden now is...Previous to the year 1836, the greater portion of what is now Benton County, constituted a part of Humphreys County. The remainder, including about one civil district, was taken from Henry County. The county was established by an act of the General Assembly, passed November 24, 1835. A postoffice named Tranquility had been established on the great stage route from Memphis to Nashville, about one mile west of the present town of Camden, and there at the house of Samuel H. Burton, contracted from Samuel Haliburton, on February 7, 1886, the county was organized by the commissioners, Green Flowers, Ephraim Perkins, Lewis Brewer, John F. Johnson and George Camp."

Ephraim is among those listed as magistrates in Benton County.

Enterprising Settlers, Environs of Camden
Ephraim Perkins (1798-1866), a native of North Carolina, was an astute politician of Benton County for many years. He emigrated to Humphreys County when a young man and served in Captain Francis Ellis' militia company, 2nd regiment, Tennessee Volunteers, in 1814-1815. Having gotten some formal education this man was an early commissioner of Camden: several times chairman of the county court; appointed land entry-taker in 1844 in which capacity he served some twenty years; trusted administrator of estates and guardian of orphans. a Keen opportunist, Perkins feathered his own nest . Perkins farm was located two miles north of Camden now on the Flatwoods road. above Burnside Creek. He had a plain single story dwelling there. His first wife Lucinda died young and was buried in the graveyard nearby. Her fine tombstone was vandalized years ago. His second wife was Mary Wyly Moses a widow of Dr. James Moses. At Perkins death, he was buried in the family graveyard.

i there...I emailed earlier about your work on the Perkins genealogy. I have found several mistakes and omissions related to my line. Ephriam Perkins 'first' wife was Mary Stubblefield. His second wife was named Lucinda 'Rushing'. His son Andrew Jackson Perkins married Nancy Cordelia Browning...not America Gillespie. Their son was named Udolpho Jacob Perkins...not Adolphus. His dates are as following:B.7-9-1857, M.Ella Frances Orr C-1894, D.7-23-1935. He was a blacksmith like his father-in-law. I don't know if you are interested in updating or correcting yourinformation but I am 100% positive of my facts. It is still a GREAT site! Thanks, Terrell Perkins

Perkins, Ephraim 65 NC Farmer $6500-14000, Virginia 5 TN, Mary 3 TN,

E. Perkins died in the summer of 1866. His affairs were complicated and confused as well, so that it was in September 1866 that the court appointed W. H. Johnson administrator of his estate. As the estate was indebted for about 3,000. he suggested insolvency on the estate which had to be passed. He died with some 1169 acres, of which 281 acres were set aside for his widow, Mary. 870 of the acreage was on Burnside Creek. 249 acres on ramble Creek. debts totaled 392.88, which had to be paid individually on a pro-rata basis,which came to 3160.06, which was all that could be raised on the estate. The land was sold in portions October 22 1869. Lot 2 71 1/2 acres; lot 3 100 7/16 acres; lot 3 41 acres lot 4 102 3/4 acres lot 5 135 1/16 acres, lot 6 142 19/20 acres lot 7 76 13/16 acres; lot 8 24 3/4 acres; lot 9 46 3/4 acres; lot 10 161 1/2 acres. Therefore, there was nothing for his heirs, other than the land for his wife.

His children were listed: Carolina, wife of James R. Williams (this is Arrilla Caroline, who married on Oct 10 1849) Tennessee Perkins Female minor, Arti Lee Perkins, minor; Sarah Perkins, minor, Harrison Williams' wife, Rebecca (this Rebecca S. who first married Alfred Rushing, in 1851 he died during the War between the states) Thomas J. Perkins of Alabama, William Perkins heirs of Arkansas; Andrew J. Perkins of Texas, Samuel W. Perkins of Arkansas, Harrison Williams. Liven in Henry Co. Tenn. You can see why there are no Perkins of E.P. line in Benton Co. today.
Mr. Milton Travis's doctor bill, dating back to at least 1862, showed that he had been almost on daily visits to E.P. last week in July 1866 and August 1st. Evidently, the old fellow died a painful, lingering illness.

THIS IS A LETTER FROM EPHRIAM TO HIS SON WILLIAM:

It has also been reported that Ephriam upset someone so much that this other man shot off his nose on the court house steps. It is also reported that Ephram lost his bid to have the county named for him by only a couple of votes.

Notes for JOHN HENRY PERKINS:
From the book by Harold C. Leidner called MANY JOURNEYS, page vi:
JOHN PERKINS (1801-1867) Came to St. Clair county with his father, Joshua Perkins, sometime previous to 1818, and to this area about 1836, purchasing land in section 10 that same year. John married first Nancy Stubblefield (1807-1849), And they were the parents of 16 known children. He was married second to Edna Durham (1826-1883) and had 6 more children. He and his First wife were buried at the Durham Cemetery; His second wife was buried at the Maxey Cemetery. His Children: Clark, Polly, John Henry, Elizabeth A. Smith, Ephraim, William Carroll, daughter name unknown died young, Rebecca, James M. Cynthia, Joshua J, and twin to Thomas V. nancy L and Twin to Louise, Onay M., Jesse, Martha Jane Minor, James W. Sarah J. Ketring, Samuel F. Eva Rench Hudson and Albert.

John Henry was one of the original settlers in what is now called Pleasant Mount, Bond Co. IL. land patents that show that John H. bought land on August 1, 1838 in Bond County.

Per Sonya Perkins Lynch (rn42th at aol.com):
.....Family lore states that the crossed over the Mississippi in the dead of winter into Illinois from Missouri. That is a clue IM sure....I haven't found a marriage record other than a note from an old family bible. He married second Edna Durham in August 4 of 1850. Nancy died the year earlier in childbirth with their 15th known child.
.....The family lore about this John Henry is that there were still Indians in Bond Co. area and John never turned away anyone. He fed Indians and others alike at his table and was quite a fellow. John Henry also took in any children that needed a home also. I decend from his and Nancy's son Ephriam and one of the children that he took in Anna Mitilda Creswick I'll get more into that later.

Someone wrote: Seldom is ever seen such a handsome and distinguished looking couple. She was tall, statley shaped, beautiful, full of grace and dignity, and yet withal gentle and sweet disposition, and on her dying day, she looked the grande dame. Richard was the proper consort for so lovely a bride. He was six feet, four inches tall, well proportioned, easy of carriage and graceful. He belonged to the Huguenot family who came to Va, in the 17th century. He became one of the most successful tobacco planters and manafacturers of the state. They had three sons and five daughters, all known as the "Tall Michauxs".
