SOLOMON PERKINS [?]

FAMILY BIBLE RECORD

by Kim Curlin Wettroth, kwet@mindspring.com


Note: A typewritten transcription of this bible was found in miscellaneous records dated 1954 - 1955 located in the DARís National Library in Florida. These records were submitted by the DAR Golden Anchor Chapter of North Miami Beach. The LDS microfilmed copy was of poor quality (Film 850,403). It is not known whose bible this actually is Ė I am assuming that it belonged to Solomon Perkins who appears to be the patriarch. It could have belonged to Samuel F. Perkins who also has many entries. It is also not known who possessed this bible at the time of transcription, where the family lived, or who has the bible now. The bible was printed in 1814 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was published by William W. Woodward located at the corner of Second and Chestnut Streets.

Jesse Curlin is believed to be a son of Thomas and Sophia Curlin who lived in Currituck and Halifax Counties, North Carolina. The Perkins family was known to live in those counties and to be associated with the Curlin family. Quite possibly they were living in Halifax County at the time the entries were written but this is not known for certain.
