Introduction

This page is devoted to Jabez Perkins and his ancestry. I find Jabez an interesting ancestor. Born in New Haven, CT, before the American Revolution, he was raised in a Loyalist household in the North Carolina back country. As a child he saw his Father, Timothy, and paternal Uncle, Joseph, join the Loyalist forces against the Americans. According to contemporary accounts, his Father and Uncle were, "notorious Tories" who one time captured Col. Cleveland, an American commander and virtual warlord in the New River settlements. While being held for trial by the Loyalists, Cleveland was able to escape, supposedly with the help of one of the women of the household. The family were early Methodists.

By 1784 a guardian was appointed for Jabez in Wilkes Co., NC. Normally, one would assume this to mean that his father was dead. However, Dow Perkins wrote that Timothy Perkins was alive and living in Grayson Co., VA. This writer knows of no documentation to support that statement. Shortly after the guardian was appointed, Jabez appears to have married and moved to Montgomery/Grayson Co., VA, where several of his children were born. In 1789, he was appointed administrator to the estate of his maternal Uncle, William Sperry, in Wilkes Co., NC. It is not yet known if William Sperry was a Loyalist or if he supported the Americans in the Revolution. In the February 1807 term of the Ashe County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, the case of Jabez Perkins vs. Elisha Blevins was heard. The verdict is unreadable. (see, http://www.ls.net/~newriver/nc/as1807co.htm ).

By 1813 he was in the Knox/Whitley Co. KY, area. Sometime after 1830, already 65 years old, he moved his family to the Bureau/Putnam Co. Illinois area. He and his sons purchased land in 1835 and 1836. By December of 1835 he had returned to Whitley Co., KY, where he made his will and died before February 13, 1836. Jabez' son William returned to Whitley Co. and remained there the rest of his life. The rest of Jabez' children remained in Illinois or moved further West.

Some researchers have identified Jabez' wife as Nancy Ann Creekmore. I am not convinced that this is correct. I am also not convinced that his wife at the time he made his will is the mother of his children. Hopefully, further research in NC or VA will turn up a marriage certificate to settle the question.

Notes on Sources

I first began family research at age 11 when my Mother died. At the time, three of my Grandparents were alive. Had I known to ask them, many of my present dead lines might have been solved. Instead, like many young children, I put the research away and returned to it in college. I seriously started working on it in 1979 when I was studying for the bar exam. By then I had gotten to the family of Timothy Perkins and knew of Jacobus' sketch of the Perkins Family of New Haven, but I did not have evidence of the connection between my Timothy and the one from New Haven. I got the lead for that link at a birthday party for my maternal Uncle, Arnold Ball. There I was directed to relatives on both sides of my family who had done genealogical research.

I contacted Orville and Gloria Manning Perkins who referred me to Judge Paul M. Perkins and to Donald Perkins. Donald Perkins had commissioned work which found the will of Abel Sperry which mentions the marriage of Timothy Perkins with Mariam Sperry and their removal to North Carolina. With that and the work of Paul M. Perkins, I started to fill out the rest of the tree. I have done so by searching for contemporary records about the persons discovered in my research. At this time, I am concentrating on the following records: military records; wills and administrations; church records; marriage records; and population census records. Further research will extend to land records; court records and the farm and manufacturing censuses. I have cited secondary records where they appear to be based on primary record sources.


FIRST GENERATION

1. Jabez1 Perkins (Timothy, 2). Born, 6 Nov 1766, in New Haven, New Haven Co., CT. Died, circa 1836, in Whitley Co., KY. Occupation: farmer.

      In 1784, George Morris was appointed Guardian to Gebas Perkins (Wilkes 
Co., NC, Will Bk 1, p.123). In 1789, Jabish Perkins was administrator of 
William Sperry, dec'd. (Wilkes Co., NC, Will Bk 1, p. 254). Inventory of the 
Estate of William Sperry is in Wilkes Co., NC Will Bk 1, p. 262 dated 1789. In 
1784, Wm. Smith was the Administrator of W. Sperry (Wilkes Co., NC Will Bk 1, 
p. 122). 

      Between 1784 and 1813, Jabez was in Grayson Co. VA, before removing to 
Knox Co., KY.

      Jabez Perkins received Knox Co. Circuit Court Certificate No. 160 for 200
acres of land on 5 Oct. 1813. This is now called Tellico Grant No. 575. It was 
surveyed on 24 August 1821 and was in the new county of Whitley on the Gelico 
River. He paid off his mortgage for the full price of $20.00 to the 
Commonwealth of Kentucky on 22 January 1828. See, Tellico Grants, No. 575, Book
2, page 1, Land Office, Kentucky Secretary of State. 

      Sometime after 1830 Jabez and his family moved to the Bureau/Putnam Co., area 
of Illinois. Jabez purchased 80 acres of land in Bureau Co., on 13 July 1835 
(IL Pub. Dom. Land Tract Sales, Arch. vol. 708, p. 119).  Jesse and William also 
purchased 80 acres of land on the same day in the same township as Jabez. Timothy
had purchased two 80 acre tracts in the same township on 20 and 25 June 1835. Jesse
purchased additional tracts of 40, 160 and 80 acres on 7 Sept 1835, and 14 Jan 
1836. 

      Jabez' son Solomon Perkins may have been the Solomon Perkins who purchased 
land in Adams Co., IL, on 27 June 1818.  This was a Military land bounty (IL Pub. 
Dom. Land Tract Sales, Arch. vol. 808, p. 481).

Edward6 Perkins. Many believe he was born, 1607, in Hilmorton, Warwickshire, Eng.? Recent (1998) work by Paula Perkins Mortensen indicates he was a son of William Perkins, Merchant-Taylor of London. Edward died, circa 1688, in New Haven, New Haven Col, CT (Between 25 January 1687, date of deeds to sons, and recordation date of 19 March 1690). Immigration: 1637, in New Haven, New Haven Colony, CT. Occupation: planter-farmer. He took the Oath of Fidelity 18 October 1648. New Haven Colony records show the following land transactions: 7 Nov 1654, he received 5 acres from Richard Hubball (v.1, p.226); 3 July 1655, he received the house and lott of Thomas Barnes, which was Stephen Metcalfes (v.1, p. 245); 7 Jan 1667/8, he receives land from Nathaniel Richards and Rosamond, his wife, of Norwalke (v.2, 213). The estate of Edward Perkins was appraised at L306 in the 1680 division of land in the City of New Haven, with Edward receiving 77 acres in the division. He made the following deeds to his sons on 25 January 1687/88: Edward Perkins of New Haven, Planter, "to loving son John Perkins" grant of mansion house wherein I lately dwelt with its home lot and one half the barn; 8 acres of arable land in the Suburbs Quarter; 1.5 acres of land in the Suburbs Quarter; 8 acres in the Yorkshire Quarter; 2 acres in the Neck in Mr Lambertson's Quarter; 1/2 of 8 acre meadow at the bottom of Yorkshire Quarter to divide with Jonathan Perkins; 44 acres of the 2nd Division; 26 acres of the 3rd Division; and, 1/2 right and title in the Ox Pasture and all other undivided lands. New Haven, CT, Register of Deeds, vol. 1, p. 489). Edward Perkins of New Haven, Planter "to loving son Jonathan Perkins" grant of mansion house where I now dwell together with said son; home lot and 1/2 barn; 3 acres in the Suburbs Quarter; 9 acres in the Suburbs Quarter; 4 acres in the Yorkshire Quarter; 5 acres in the Neck; 1/2 of 8 acres in the lower end of Yorkshire Quarter to be divided with John Perkins; 44 acres 2nd Division; 25 acres 3rd Division; and, 1/2 of Edward Perkins interest in Ox Pasture and all other undivided lands. (New Haven, CT, Register of Deeds, vol. 1, p. 488). Edward Perkins of New Haven, Planter, "to loving son David Perkins of New Haven, cordwainer" grant 4.5 acres in the Suburbs Quarter; 2 acres in the Yorkshire Quarter; 1 acre of meadow in the Yorkshire Quarter; 1 acre in the Neck; 12 Acres of 2nd Division; and, 25 acres in the 3rd Division. (New Haven, CT, Register of Deeds, vol. 1, p. 490). All three of these deeds were recorded on 19 November 1690. It is presumed that Edward died between 25 January 1687/88 and 19 November 1690. There are only two other deeds from Edward Perkins recorded in the extant New Haven Register of Deeds. These are to John Perkins, vol. 1, p. 82, and to Joseph Moss, vol. 1, p. 273. In none of the deeds is a wife mentioned. It is therefore presumed that she was dead before 1672. There is no reference to his estate in either the New Haven Probate Packets or the New Haven Probate Records. He married Elizabeth Butcher (33), 20 Mar 1648/9, in New Haven, New Haven Co., CT (By Mr Goodyear, New Haven VR, 1:46). Children: 16 i. John5. ii. Mehitabel. Born, 21 Sep 1652, in New Haven, CT. Died, before 1688?, in New Haven, CT. It is assumed that Mehitable died young or before marriage age since there are no recorded land transactions from Edward Perkins to "my son in law" or "in portion of my daughter". He did transfer his property to his sons in 1688. iii. Jonathan. Born, 12 Nov 1653, in New Haven, CT. He married Mary Elcock, 14 Jun 1682, in New Haven, CT. iv. David. Born, 3 Oct 1656, in New Haven, CT. Died, 27 Oct 1732, in New Haven, CT. Occupation: cordwainer. He married, first, Deliverance, 8 Jun 1682, in New Haven, CT. He married, second, Sarah Bradley, 19 Jun 1729, in New Haven, CT. On 4 December 1732, administration of his estate was granted to Dan'll Perkins on sufficient bond ( New Haven Probate Records, volume 6, page 84). An inventory was presented in January 1733/4 (New Haven Probate Records, volume 6, page 124). Daniel Perkins presented a further account of administration and an agreement between the heirs of David Perkins for recording on 8 January 1733/34. The agreement was accepted as a settlement of the estate. It is difficult to read and is not reproduced in full. It was signed by the following: William Punchard?; Mehitable Punchard, by mark; Dan'll Perkins; Caleb Thomas; David Gilbert; and, Experience Gilbert, by mark (New Haven Probate Records, volume 6, pages 125-126). 33.
