So...if anyone on this list knows of a William Perkins, b.1738 with

University and never married. I checked his brothers out but none of them
traveled to N.C. where the other match is.......ISN'T THIS FUN? So, Ken,
aren't you sorry you asked?
If you haven't already done so, you might want to check birth records, and

There are many Perkins still living there and in the surrounding area, such
as Essex and Ipswich as Ken mentioned. There's even a Perkins Street in

allegations of witch craft. I'm not sure what part she played in those
You just might get a lead from some of these sources.
