Susan was born in Norfolk, VA, the youngest child of Dr. Samuel Lyle Lightfoot and his wife Mary Francis Columbia Lee.

She married Redding Blount Perkins, the son of Nathan Snowden Perkins and his wife Mary Elizabeth Blount of Edenton, NC on December 31, 1866 in Norfolk, VA.

They had four children: Mary Lee, William N., Nathan Snowden and Daisy Lightfoot.

For most of their married life Susan and Redding resided in Edenton, Chowan, NC. They were still living there when the 1880 census was taken.

Her husband purchased the 8-grave plot in Salem Cemetery on September 8th and she was buried the same day. He later left North Carolina, remarried, and spent the remainder of his life in Anniston, Calhoun, Alabama. His two sons, William and Nathan, moved with him.
