About Stephen Perkins

Stephen Perkins was the Husband of Catherine Summa Perkins (11 Nov 1789-21 Jun 1875).

George Perkins, son of Joshua “Old Jock” Perkins & Mary, married Keziah Manning.

Neither of George's children were mentioned in his original Revolutionary War Pension Application. On 28 Jan 1853 in Lewis County MO, Anna Graves, 72, assigned power of attorney to obtain her mother’s pension, and that is the document in which it is asserted Anna was George and Keziah's only child. This was true in 1853 because George and Keziah's son Stephen had died in 1850.
