Glad it worked out. Have a nice Christmas.

RE: Perkins
They look like a couple of tough persons.

Did you receive the newspaper clipping I sent about the cabin that was moved by the avalanche?

RE: Mrs. Hickok
I took a look in for anyone named Hickock in Woodward, OK, but didn't find anything. She probably didn't have that surname, anyway.

RE: Thomas Perkins
It didn't take too much effort to find the common grandparents. They were George Perkins (1804-1869) and Jane Voorhies (1804-1881). There is a lot of information, including pictures of them, on

RE: Thomas Perkins
There was indeed a William J. Perkins, born 31 Jul 1862 in Clinton County, MI to Joseph Yates Perkins (1823-1903) and Polly LeBar (1834-1900). He died on 12 Oct 1933 in Elko, NV. He lived in Jarbidge for several years, and there is a newspaper article from 8 Mar 1917 that talks about how a snowslide pushed his cabin 200 feet and knocked him unconscious for several days.

Thomas A Perkins was born 13 Jul 1867 in Ovid, Clinton County, MI to Josiah Perkins (1836-?) and Eunice W. Tower (1841-1900). He married Alice M. (?) (1866-1943).

I don't know for sure if William and Thomas were cousins - I hadn't connected the two, but I'll check out the records to see if they are. It seems likely, as they were both born in the same county in Michigan.

If you have a subscription to, you can see what I have posted about the Perkins family in Jarbidge.

Thank you for the correction on the spelling. I have linked all the children of Ella and Elbert Hickok that I could find on Find A Grave to their parents and noted the others in the bio.

RE: Ella Perkins Hickok
How cool! I'm sure there is a connection. I'm working on piecing it all together through and with my grandma's help! Her daughter (my great grandma) was Alice Hickok, who then married to be Alice Schramm.

RE: Perkins
Hi Tom

I wish I could help, but I'm just the volunteer who added that cemetery to Find A Grave. I have no other information, as they are not part of my family tree.

RE: Perkins

Thanks for the letting me know about the photos. They are very special as the frames are something.

I finally send Find A Grave a message to remove the parents from the wrong William Perkins. The owner of that memorial never did respond.

Thank you again for all your help,
Leanne Meyer
