Fifth Generation

43. Ann Reed PERKINS59 was born on 10 October 1793 in Goochland County, Virginia.1 She died on 28 February 1871 at the age of 77.16

Two marriage records in Goochland:

30 Oct 1812 Marriage of James Herndon & Ann Perkins. Daughter of Archs. Perkins. Surety: Pleasant Turner. Married 30 Oct by Rev. Lewis Chaudoin.

25 Jan 1814. Marriage of James Denton & Ann Perksin. Surety Joseph Perkins. This marriage also lists her name as "Ann Perkins". Unless the marriage to Herndon never took place this would not be her name. Likely this is a different Ann since it's obvious Ann did marry Herndon.
