My questions revolve around the Perkins, Cootware families of the Grand Isle and Burlington Shelburne area of Vermont and the Allen family from Georgia
The Perkins family are descendants of John Perkins senior born abt 1848 in New York who was married to a Sophia unknown maiden name...suspect Cootware.Who's children where John, Emma, William and Arthur. John Perkins junior born about 1871 in New York who married Margaret maiden name unknown and who's children where Raymond, Ella and Florence.
I am seeking information on the descendants of Florence S. Perkins born abt 1904 in Vermont (Burlington Shelburne area) and Joseph Allen possibly born about 1895 in Georgia and firm evidence of the Maiden Names of Margaret and Sophia.
Since my research indicates several African American Joseph Allens from Georgia.I will clarrify some information...To my knowledge Joseph was white (his descendants appear white) and also in the military...probably stationed in Burlington when he met Florence....
He apparently left Florence twice ...the last time was sometime on or about 1927 when their last daughter was born...my information indicates 4 daughters.Two daughters were born between the years 1920 and 1925 thier names I do not yet know.One Idra May (Ida Mary) born Dec 24 1925 and one Margaret Jane born Jan 31 1927. There was also a half sibling...a male..I do not know anything further about this child.
