PERKINS - died
at Wyoming, PA, April 27th,
Sister Perkins was born April 4th, 1793,
about two miles from where she died, and was consequently in her
seventy-seventh year at the time of her death. She had been twice married.
Her first husband was Payne Pettebone Sr., her last the late David
Perkins, who also preceded her to the spirit world. Her four children,
Stougton Pettebone, Esq., of Niagara, N.Y., Payne Pettebone, Esq., of
Wyoming, Mrs. J. T. Fellows, of Hyde Park, and Mrs. E. Shafer, of Wyoming,
survive her and mourn her loss. She was connected and united with the M.
E. Church more than forty years ago, and continued a member of the same
until called to the church triumphant. She will be greatly missed by the
community, and especially by the older members of the church with whom she
has worshiped so long. She was an earnest Christian; faithful in the use
of the means of grace. She read much and always had something to say for
her master. The writer has often met her in the Love Feast and class-room,
and been comforted and strengthened by hearing her talk of Jesus. She
suffered much during her last sickness, but did not murmur, she would
rather "depart and be with Christ", yet was willing to wait and suffer.
During the past few years she has evidently been ripening for the garner;
and when the summons came it found her ready.
Mrs. C. Perkins,
wife of the Rev. Charles Perkins, died at the
residence of her son-in-law, Mr. John Barnum, in Chicago, Illinois, on the
19th ultimo, in the 58th year of her age. Mrs. Perkins was formerly a
resident of this place, and was much endeared to a large circle of friends
