I am from Wales, in the United Kingdom, and I had a 4x gt-grandfather called Rees Perkins (b. 1812 or 1813 in Pembokeshire county, and d. in abt 1891 in Pembs. county). I have found something on the internet, which features an early to mid 18th century man also called Rees Perkins, who, like my distant ancestor, seems to have a link with Pembrokeshuire county in Wales. The webpage is http://jliptrap.us/gen/perkins.htm
The two Rees Perkinses are two different people - one (my distant ancestor from Pembrokeshire, Wales,the 19th century), and the other an 18th century American with links, possibly ancestry, from Pembrokshire. Does anyone know of any possible links between the two men, for example, if they have any common ancestry?
