Vic, I just happened to check your email address and it appears that you are in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area? If that is correct, I am too!! And from what you have posted, you are desc. from Redell Beckwith whose mother was Armena Perkins Beckwith. I am desc. from Armena's step-brother, Frederick Walton Perkins. I believe this makes us cousins...!!! Have copies of Bible record which may be of interest to you. Its the Bible of Armena's step-mother, Marinda (Greene) Perkins. Armena's full brother, Marcos died in 1858, just five years after their mother. I don't know how close Armena was to her step-mother or to her step-siblings. Would really love to compare notes with you. Thanks.
