For about 9 years I have been searching for a Pottawatomie County History book that has info about my gr gr grandfather William Payton "Pate" PERKINS. I think that I may have found the book. From what I understand there is info about a murder or Pate having killed a man in Avoca. I believe that Pate was sentenced to 3 years. The following is info that I would like from the book, particularly that of William P. and Pate PERKINS as they are the same person. I am very interested in any of the Perkins info in the book. I have been trying to find my Perkins ancestors for about 9 years now, and in the last year I have finally found them.
I found the index on the Pottawatomie County Genealogy Club site

Perkins Algie 226

Perkins Pate 109, 110. 111, 149
Perkins Rufe 109, 300
Perkins William P 114
Perkins W T 150, 300
Matilda Edwards PERKINS was the wife of Rubin PERKINS, the parents of William Payton "Pate" PERKINS. I think that Algie above is Lawson Alger PERKINS. Not sure who Rufe and W.T. Perkins are.
This lookup would be greatly appreciated.
