I would appreciate any information on these families in Brown County. My (paternal) great-great-grandfather was George Percifield who moved to BC in 1831 near the Country Club where there is now a cemetary.
My paternal grandmother's father's name is David Myers who married Jenny Dallas.
Maternal side: My mother's father was Winfer Wilkerson son of Isom and Sally (Awrine)Wilkerson. Her mother was Lidia Elkins daughter of Jacob Elkins who settled Elkinsville, Indiana. Thank you for any information!

Their Children were Lussie Garrett m. Goss b. 9-1883, Elizabeth m. Newby b. 8-1886, Walter Scott Percifield, b. 6-16-1889 m. Emma Barnett. All Children were born in Indiana, Walter was born in Gibson Co. In. On the census they were in Vincennes, Knox Co. Indiana on Portland St. This is about all of the info I have.

I am helping a lady look up her family tree and she has a picture of a Jacob Kemper Elkins. On the back it says he was born in Elkins West Virginia. He is father to Clarrissa Ethel Elkins( born in Arkansa ) and grand father to Marvin Cecil Beers ( born in Okland CA) and Edith Naomi Beers Smith ( born in San Francisco CA). Could be related??? Will let you know when I find more.

I am looking for the ancestors of William Blevins. William's son's name was Luke. Luke may have had siblings (or half-siblings) named Susie, "Wash" (short for Washington?)

Thanks. Elaine

Kary just read your inquiry about George P.He was my paternal ggggfather. My sister and I just returned from Nashville, Brown County,IN where all the Percifield's of Samuel's line lived. There is a whole set of family line research booklets in that library. Many of course tie to the Percifields. Watson George "Jack" Percifield, your George's son, was my great-great-grandfather. His daughter, Doraval Ruby was my Mamaw Small. If you'd like to exchange more info let me know.
