I am trying to locate the birthplace and/or parents of William H. Perkins, b.1808-09, died Nov. 17, 1864, Readfield, ME; married in Parsonsfield, ME o Amy Sayward October 1842. Their son and our gg
Ancil B. was born in Parsonsfield, April 20, 1845, married Sarah Wood, Sept. 20, 1866, place unknown. William H. was probably born in ME or
NH. Amy Sayward is a direct descendant of John and Judith Gator Perkins through Mary Perkins Bradbury...the accused witch of Salem.
Other children of Wm. H. are: Arminda m. Thomas Packard, resided Stoneham, MA; Anna (Ancil's twin) m. James Craig, also resided in
With no known history beyond grandfather James L. Perkins, it took us 10 years to find Ancil's birthplace and we've been looking 5 years for William's birthplace or parents. We're hopeful somebody out there can help us get over our brick wall. Thank you.
