I sent my father an email regarding this information. He seems to remember my grandfather Irving mentioning the Perkins name. He is going to see what he can find out. Unfortunately my grandfather is no longer alive for me to ask him anything. I may call my great aunt (Irving's sister) in PA and see if she knows anything about Perkins. The problem is that my Machie line was notorious for not talking to each other. So many of them lost touch and have no idea about each other's family. That's why I'm looking for Machie's so I can find living relatives with my last name. I'll post here once I get any new information. You can always email me also =) Have a great day.
