Parents of Homer Lathe Perkins

Although we have no contemporary record to provide evidence that Emma A. Jenkins was the mother of Homer Lathe Perkins nor a marriage record for John Butters Perkins and Emma A. Jenkins, we have the following evidence of their marriage.

  • Tombstone of John Butters Perkins and Emma A., his wife[1]
  • 1880 U.S. Census indicates that Emily A. is the wife of John B Perkins.[2]
  • 1900 U.S. Census: indicates that Emma A. is the wife of John B. Perkins, that Emma had given birth to four children, three of whom were still living[3] [Louisa B. died 31 July 1885.[4] John B. and Emma A. Perkins had both been married for 32 years. There were three children in the household: Etta Belle, daughter, born November 1869; Charles B., son, born June 1872; and Homer L., son, born Jun 1876.
  • Marriage of Etta B. Perkins and George W. Rowell states that Etta Belle’s parents were John B. Perkins and Emma Jenkins.[5]
  • Birth of Charles B. Perkins, born 13 June 1872, filed 28 February 1928,[6] show parents as John B. Perkins and Emma A. Jenkins.
  • Birth of Louisa B. Perkins, born 6 July 1875, filed 28 February 1925,[7] show parents as John B. Perkins and Emma A. Jenkins

Although much of the evidence is not “close” to the time of the event, I do believe that we have a strong argument indicating that the parents of Homer Lathe Perkins, were John B. Perkins and Emma Jenkins.
